When I have conducted animation dailies on the various films over the years, I've often talked about pushing the lines of action on the characters and made suggestions when there are balance issues.

I nicked this pic off the net some time ago for how clearly it demonstrates weight distribution and balance.  Not only is the guy's pose a strong sil, but it's easy to see how if he leaned any more to our right... if the center of his chest and the weight on his shoulder moved beyond his left foot, that he would fall over.  99% of the guy's weight and the weight on his shoulder is borne by his left foot.

This pose has it all.  Graphic clarity, design, rhythm...and it's funny too!
