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.

Feel free to use when discussing escher girls in comics.

Hey boobsdontworkthatway, here’s a macro for you. :D

(And for those that aren’t aware, that tumblr is specifically for poor illustrations of breasts in pop media, and the forerunner to Escher Girls. :D  It is great and you should check it out)

The Butt Whisperer.
First ever-submission, this is from a comic book called Butcher Knight, published by Top Cow, 2000. I saw this comic in a thrift shop, and the weird stance of the squatting woman caught my eye. What is she doing, fixing the other woman’s fishnets? And what’s with the waist on the woman with the boobs-and-butt pose?
The woman are just called “Section X” girls: http://www.comicvine.com/butcher-knight-2/4000-125585/
Anyway, enjoy!

This might honestly be the worst one that’s ever been on this blog.

Got this while checking stuff on dA. I’m actually worried the most over her leg.

So I spend a lot of time on the internet and thus, am constantly bombarded with “sexy” advertisements. I always consider sending them here, but I’ve never been motivated enough…Until now. Look at this. Look at it.

What is going on with her body? And check out that text. Very classy.

Their sisters could probably come up with a way better ad and game concept, like a mermaid with full mech armor, rocket launchers, and legs that attach properly.

I just got published in this eMag, New Realm Magazine, and while I’m super thrilled, as a follower of this blog, I noticed the art is a total boobs and butt pose. Also, WHERE ARE HER NIPPLES!?

The realm is so new that anatomy and physics and stuff haven’t been invented yet.
(Congratulations on being published. :D )

THIS SO MUCH THIS I pointed this out in

and it’s so very true. And wrong.

But sometimes she has animal ears and sometimes she doesn’t!  Diversity!  And besides, the men all look the same too.  Look they all have eyes and a nose!

Brian Bolland obviously knows how to draw, so what is even going on here?

"How?" shrieked Animal Man, "How do the straps stay in place?"

I’m not sure what poor Isabelle’s head is doing in relation to her breasts, and quite frankly I’m not sure I want to. Also is it just me or should she seriously consider moving those knives before she impales her ladies on them?

That thing she’s holding is actually her magical gluestick for applying on the outfit.
