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)

poppyash asked you:



I just noticed something. The wooden mannequins some artists use to get pose references from and that some how-to books use (like the one that shows a 90 degree turn)… they look to have a ball for the waist. Maybe artists are getting confused and thinking waists act like a ball and socket joint? A quick search tells me the max spinal rotation is about 13 degrees.



We definitely know there’s at least one “how to draw” artist who thinks that women’s waists are ball joints.
