Wow, great drawing. I definitely got the "wedged" vibe, rather an "upward lunge" vibe but it certainly wasn't falling. ;) Great gesture and shading and awesome character design too. I also really love the line work, though you could do to make it a teeny bit thinner in some parts for a more dynamic look but it's just a suggestion, not a critique. Again, excellent artwork.
Thanks! I'm so glad it conveys well! and I get what you mean in regards to dynamics. properly placed exaggerations can do a world of good.
