Very good scuplting, all the partisipants created very human works. Unfortunately, I can't comment on how well the human body was captured because all of you are way beyond my own level.

Some of the works, especially the scuplture Andreja and ShamesDean chose to recreate, seemed to be too static to be in a thread about motion. I'm not familiar with the original work, but I saw just the subtle motion in the sitting man's left hand.
I really liked the dress in daWinky's scuplture, supporting the sculpture's weight, allowing the sculpture to lean far to its side.
I also liked anandpg's fighters, because that was exactly the kind of motion I thought I'd see when I saw the title of this thread. The fighters reminded me of a video I saw of kalaripayattu performance; not a still frame, but the motion I saw there. I don't know if it's based on some real work (painting or photo), but it's the work which most pleases my eye.

Yeah top stuff!
I have always been puzzeled by the motivation to make motion studies in 3d. It is clear though that if you can do this you can do anything.

The artistic anatomy section of cgtalk is one of the most exciting forums IMO. The products speak for themselves. Well done!

All still images are essentially a moment in time, with a history and a future, rather than some special alien dimension which is utterly static.
Movement can be depicted through simple muscle tension, showing the anticipation of action, or even through an expression on a face, depicting thoughts flowing in the subject's mind.

I used to do gymnastics, horse specifically. The main idea is that your shoulder position is over the other side of where your hands or center is. Its hard to explain, but the upper body balances the legs so you don't just fall to the side. You have to keep centered to maintain balance.

I don't know if you used a reference photo, but your guy looks like he's about to fall on his side.

Otherwise good of course
