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.

(All art featured on this blog belongs to their respective artists)

Here’s an example of how far Escher Girls predate Todd McFarlane and Greg Land. The picture is from the original run of the B&W Vampirella magazine published by Warren. It’s from issue #3, which came out in January of 1969. The artist is listed as Jack Sparling.
Sideways broken spine unicorn. Ick.

Tetris girls, now in classic retro style.

Shining Resonance
Sad thing is, I’m old enough to remember when Shining games were cool. Featured female characters in full armour or reasonable outfits. And didn’t look like horrible generic jRPGs and didn’t come with stupid fan service figurines. *sigh* I’m old…
Modelling is just her hobby, her day job is being a mould for licorice strands.

Female Fantasy Armor … . . by Heckmaker
Every time a new fantasy video game is announced - I worry it will employ this mechanic.

Little known science fact: nakedwomanium is the strongest element in existence, but it’s strength is diminished if any fabric is put on top.

Yet more League of Angels… I love how she’s armored except for her boobs. And how apparently she’s totally fine with nothing between her armor and her skin.

The league of angels needs a hero… armorer!  Can you be the saviour who gives them proper armor?

Here we have an alternate cover to a Zenescope one-shot, by Mike Krome.  Apparently in the Age of Darkness women don’t have nipples.

“Now Robyn Hood, you will tell me what you’ve done with all the anatomy you’ve stole from England!”

"Never!"
