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.

A redraw of this using a Poser figure. I used a standard model, Sydney, with a standard pose modified to match the original, then painted a swimsuit in Photoshop. (Gave the swimsuit a high neckline just because it was easier to draw in.) The hair colour got away from me a bit; Poser has some quirky controls that made it difficult to match colours. And the hairstyle doesn’t match Scarlett Johanson’s.
The model isn’t quite right: Poser seemed to object to how much I bent her left ankle, producing something that looks a little broken. But flipping between this and the original makes me appreciate how much Starfire’s alien skeleto-muscular structure varies from baseline humans’. ;)
