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.

Found a post you might find interesting. It’s from Steven E Gordon’s blog, who was one of the main minds behind X-Men Evolution. Basically it’s him writing about his work on making the character’s look unique and varying face and body types.

I think one reason I really liked X-Men Evo was for that reason.

Very interesting. :)  It’s nice to see an artist try to differentiate their female characters to be more than just different hair colors.
