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.

So…Apparently demon cheerleaders like smuggling milk duds in their shirts? Or something? This is honestly the scariest demon I’ve ever seen…

Little known fact: if you trade enough anatomy away to the devil, you only have to give him half your soul.

Her body certainly has a lot of free spirit of it’s own.

Reposting this without the submission comments, because I think the original was a bit cluttered and some people lost track that this was a caption contest. 

Here’s the deal again:

We’re having a caption contest for this post, which means everybody who wants to participate can submit in their caption for this post to me.  It can be about what you think is going on, or what you think she’s saying, or even a poem (I’ve gotten a poem before).

Thanks to the lovely and generous wincenworks this contest will have 2 prizes up for grab: a copy of Gone Home for Steam, and a copy of Contrast, also for Steam.

I know that her fighting style is about breaking bones, but I never thought that also included her own spine.

This centaur girl is missing two legs

Either that or someone cut off one leg and stuck it directly behind the other.

Clearly she’s storing water like a camel.

dragimal said: holy shit, I just realized. all these boobs are suffering from "Mickey-ear Syndrome". no matter where they're facing, or what position they're in, the boobs must always be visible, in the same way both of Mickey's ears are always perfectly round and visible, no matter which way his head is turned

That’s an amusing and apt comparison that I’ve never thought of.  It is kind of like that.
