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.

Hi, this is my first redraw, critique appreciated - I want to learn!
So I did my best to try and fix her blank expression and twisty spine - I know this pose is vaguelly possible, but the extreme nature of it bothered me a little, cos it looks like she’s straining to show bum cleavage and boob cleavage at the same time. Instead I tried to follow le-mec’s video about suggesting rather than showing everything at once and tried to make her pose a little more naturalistic?

I like this redraw quite a lot.  It’s both sexier and more natural.  And it’s more enticing with her looking over her shoulder at us.
