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.

Straight from the 80s, a rare beast indeed - video game cover art featuring two sensibly-dressed warrior women and an Escher Boy! Impractical armor, twisted pose, broken feet, and all. It’s like an artifact from some kind of alternate universe.

Phantasy Star was apparently the Hawkeye Initiative before the Hawkeye Initiative. xD
Edit: The character in the white cloak is a man and not a woman as the OP said, the only woman in the picture is the one at the front, thanks to sandy-cooca for writing in. :)
