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.

I was reading Women of Marvel (I was researching Satana’s character, who is currently a member of the Thunderbolts) and came across this… this… “piece of art”. The whole thing is obviously fan service, showing off the boobs and butts of two of the most cleavage-showing heroins of Marvel. I love both Satana and Black Cat’s character and think they’re underused by Marvel, so I tend to read all the material I can find (especially about Satana). 
I’m sure you can comment on Satana’s posture better than I ever could so I’m just going to stop rambling here. I hope you never got that one but I didn’t find it in your tag. 
Issue: Women of Marvel #1 / Pencils by Romina Moranelli / Characters: Satana Hellstrom and Felicia Hardy

This is known as the dog-and-hydrant stance.

  13. liara-shadowsong said: Blerg. Do not want. (Natasha’s contortion is making my back hurt just looking at it.) I just did a quick two-minutes-if-that redraw sketch of an alternate posing, and I’ll try to get it scanned later.
