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 this picture

Well, it’s not a “redraw” per se, but more a “how I’d draw this”. I know almost nothing about ancient egyptians’ clothes, but I googled it :I I hope it looks fine.

You know what I disliked so much about the original picture? I disliked how they slapped a sexy babe on the top of the background and fucked up a great opportunity to make a great and beautiful character with a great and beautiful story (and by “make” I mean “make in this cover” I haven’t read the comics so I dunno about her character, maybe it’s really good but I doubt it). I don’t mind sexy babes, sexy babes are great. But at least they could put her into a storytelling environment, not a boob and butt pose.

So, I wanted to draw Isis at that moment when she was teleported into modern world: “What the?-” kind of face, a little bit twisted body like something is pulling her, and sparkles! sparkles everywhere! Also I gave her wings. Because WINGS! And the sun disc.

I hope you like it.

This is a really nice redraw.  I like what you did with it, and how you re-interpreted her (and you gave her dark skin!). :)  Also, the idea that she’s in a state of transition matches up well with the two different backgrounds that indicate ancient Egypt and modern day America, and makes the cover look much more dynamic.
