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.

Normally…i wouldnt  do redraws.. especially of characters i dont know(though i might just check lady death out..she looks kinda cool). how after seeing this : http://eschergirls.tumblr.com/post/11618443745/pro-tip-when-sketching-from-mannequins-make-sure , i had to..i just fucking had too. i don’t even think the pose bothers me more of the fact that…there basically cashing in on  a lesbian fantasy (or maybe that’s just what i see) so  i redrew it, fixing what i could , and actually made them look like a couple..and made shi?(is that her name?) look the race shes suppose to be..although..as a fan of geisha and ninjas (which is what it looked like they were mixing together to make her) it took A HELL of a lot not to completely change that costume…it really really did. I hate when people turn other cultures in to sexual fantasies (and then make them look white)  Sorry if lady death looks a bit chunky…corel painter was fighting me every damn step of  the way.  
I suppose the scene in my head is that  Lady Death teased her and said she couldn’t top..and well Shi kicked her ass..explaining how rough Lady Death looks.

You do win.
