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 feel like my warrior princesses should look like they are both warriors and princesses and in Starfire’s case; are from space.
Maybe I’m just trying to fill the Barda shaped hole in my continuity.
This a more detailed and slightly updated version of the Starfire redesign I did recently that was featured over on Project Rooftop.

Kind of a weird thing but the first thing that caught my eye and that I LOVE is her stomach: it folds and ripples like a real woman’s, instead of bending smoothly like paper like I see too often.
I love the heft and feel of her body in this picture: She feels substantial and like she can move planets and wreck stuff.


I actually thought this was Maxima. Take note Lobdell and Rocafort oh and while I’m at it (Lobdell you’re a douche for what you’ve done to her)

I love that the light in her eyes is actually bouncing off the bridge of her nose and cheekbones - which is what would really happen if her eyes actually glowed and I’ve never seen an artist depict that.
Kory is a *strong* individual. She has muscles and weight. She is tall. Drawing her as a sprite when she’s an adult doesn’t make any sense.
I always thought it would make more sense if she was built more like Barda or Knockout.

This is awesome

I really like this. :)
