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.

Boobs do work that way, and that way, and that way, and that way

Because people often ask me for resources:

http://www.007b.com/breast_gallery.php (NSFW)

This is a large gallery of different kinds of breasts (NSFW but there’s nothing sexual about the nudity).  They’re all front facing, so it’s not exactly an artist reference, but it is a good resource for seeing the diversity of breasts, because that’s something that mainstream images and art really have an issue with.  And I understand that a lot of people drawing have generally only seen breasts in mainstream depictions, or in porn, or whichever women in their lives they’ve been able to see naked (including themselves).   That doesn’t necessarily give that much diversity, so I think this site can be a great resource for that, and seeing different kinds of breasts and what they look like.

As this site says, even many women growing up worry if our breasts are “normal” because of how narrow the depiction of breasts in our society and our media is.  In my opinion, referencing real pictures like this is a better resource than a “how to draw comics” book that says “this is what a small breast looks like, this is what a big breast looks like.”

Note: this is only about the use of the site as a resource, not an endorsement of anything else on the site, so if there are concerns that the introduction of the site is cissexist (for example), this is not me making any statement about it by providing the link.

Somebody asked me to give them the link of this site again, and I figured why not just reblog the old post so everybody who missed it can see it :)
