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.

So I decided to do an eschergirls redraw tonight. Basically I saw someone had posted a photo of themselves pulling a pose from this artwork, and I figured this was the perfect opportunity to practise my anatomy referencing. I made the buddy more voluptuous to try and match the original character design in a more realistic way. Couldn’t really make it the finer details of the costume though, and the face ended up looking like something you’d see in one of those budget “how to draw manga” books. Still like how it came out though.
