Escher Girls

Float like a butterfly, Sting like a WTF!?

This is a blog to archive and showcase the prevalence of certain ways women are depicted in illustrated pop media, specifically how women are posed, drawn, distorted, and/or sexualized out of context, often in ridiculous, impossible or disturbing ways that sacrifice storytelling.

See the "About" section in the sidebar for more details.

nothing sexier than getting electrocuted

Severe shocks produce muscle contractions, which lead to muscular spasms, paralysis, unconsciousness, or buttcheek dislocation.

Hi! I’ve been stalking your blog for a while even though I don’t have an account. You guys really helped me think more about how I design my characters. But I saw this ad and thought you might want to have a look. I am not sure, but something about that sideboob looks wrong to me.

More weather vane than woman.

As far as I’ve heard, this is the box art for Senran Kagura Burst. A quick glance on google shows a load of horrible, misshapen girls. But this one is pretty bad.
Her right boob looks like it’s falling off. It should be higher up than that. Not to mention they’re completely the wrong shape. She also seems to have a wandering nipple on the left one.

wincenworks when I showed him this: “Either a boob has gone rogue or she dislocated her head.”

At first glance, they’ve tumbled over into a trench, their boobs are defying gravity, their spines are broken, their lower legs are tucked in, and while they’re not quite in full butts & boobs pose, I think there is some hip swivelling going on.  Do you think the artist reads EscherGirls and tried to put as much into one picture as he could?

Don’t worry, the top girl is transforming into her vehicle form.  They’ll be okay.

I don’t know how well this will show up, but I do know that the image you are looking at is real.
The woman on top has incredibly thick ribs where her breast line is of concern, but still manages to hold that perfect 22 inch waste line.
The woman in the center photo has no bra under her top, but it seems to droop down like a perfect water balloon shape, along with her “inviting” pose.
The woman on the bottom is actually holding her bow and arrow in a correct pose without it looking so dramatic…if she wasn’t in see through clothing as her optional armor.
I do get a grand kick that in order to make this a “Free Adult Game” they had to make all the girls in see through clothing.

Another game ad that’s stolen their art.  And given stuff like Wartune, I wonder if the game even is actually an adult game and not just a regular RPG or something.

So. I ordered the game Sacred (dated 2004) off of Amazon and received it the other day. I opened it to look at the races (it’s an RPG, if you couldn’t guess). Aside from some normal RPG guys and gals, this beauty stood out. She’s supposed to be a Seraphim. I don’t know where to begin with her issues. I just…PASTIES. That horse has some issues, too. There might be a re-draw in the future. XD

Losing a bet right before an important battle really sucks.

Considering the filename for this is literally “inflatablewoman.gif”, I think this is a pretty appropriate submission. I’d rather find her a decent top than guard her, if I’m honest…

The ad’s been on this blog before, but not the animated version.  o_o

This is short storage box meant for holding trading cards. My friend has this box and I spent about 20 minutes wondering what was going on with her body. I hope for her sake that she’s part snake or something. Here’s a redline, sort of, outlining where everything is because I couldn’t find a particularly good photo of this.

I found a non box version of the picture and added it to the post.

Fantasica Ouch Pose



The game, Fantasica, is full of rubber spines, wtf clothes and boobs and butts posing, but this is the worst Escher Girl nightmare I’ve seen. It hurts to look at.

The thing on her hat looks like a spine.  So that’s where she put it.

Chizuru Mochizuki from Nyan Koi and her, uh, rather unorthodox way of delivering the mail…?

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night nor being chewed up by a dragon stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.
