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.

Redraw of Dofus’ Sram Female character
First I wanted to say that I love this tumblr. Here done.
So I saw this yesterday and I couldn’t help myself.
I asked myself what are the not anatomical things that help when guessing the gender of a person and the answer was simple : clothes. 
So I gave her a dress (and yes if she were a living woman we’d see her boobs but I wanted to show the rib cage). 
I tried to blend some of her character design (the puffy hood, the “shoes” and the long gloves) with the character design of  the male sram. Something that I absolutely couldn’t keep were the daggers : seriously they’re thicker than her fingers, you can’t stab someone with that! They almost look like a plastic beach shovel, you know, for kids to dig sand…. So I changed them but well I’m not the best when it comes to swords/knifes/daggers…. 
Ah, and I made her kinda floating because the male one is so it give the indication or the impression that he can use magic while the sram female is clearly standing on something which make her look more like a human assassin than a magic/fantasy creature. 
Also I didn’t like the crazy look of the male character so I gave mine a mischievous one. :)
(ps : sorry if I did any mistake, English is not my first language…)

I like the design a lot.
