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.

This is from a game called Wartune and this is the starting screen where you choose a character. As always, the women have almost no armor, but this time the absurdity has leaked into one of the guy’s attire as well.
Modifying the armor so you can show your six pack? I don’t know if that is even more ridiculous than the women’s clothing.

There must be a metal shortage across the land.  Or he forgot his armor at home and had to borrow one of the women’s. xD
I think if I were their enemy, I’d always put my fortresses behind a forest of thorns.
Given the ads Wartune has, I’m wondering when six-pack dude will be in them promising everybody an orgy?
(And it’s just the one guy, the guy in the middle is wearing clothes, though in the darkened panel it looks like his skin.

You can see the male mage’s clothes and that the female mage is literally wearing lingerie.)
