Animation Principles

One of the main things I want to convey in my Showreel is a knowledge of Animation Principles and that I can apply them to my work. I have been reading The Animator's Survival Guide by Richard Williams and mainly The Illusion Of Life for research into the principles. Here are a few of my drawings/research pages:

I am particularly looking into adding Follow Through and Overlapping Action and also Anticipation to my work, to make them seem more realistic, for example having the hands continue to move when a character is walking even after the step, or building up to the step. I also want to make my movements more exaggerated but not in a fast pace where it will look blocky and odd.
