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.

I found some promotional art for an upcoming game “Dark Eye: Demonicon.” 
The boob-window on the woman warrior just makes me confused.  The armor looks like it was cut and folded back to look like an opened blouse.  Why?  When I visited the game’s website, this character has similar boob-windows on her other armors.  It’s disappointing, because the rest of her armor looks almost decent.  I guess the designers weren’t sure if the players would realize the character was a woman and had to make certain.

That’s so weird.  I glanced at the small version of this when you submitted it and thought “oh that must be a “proper armor” example submission”, but then I read your comment and took a second look, and was like o_O  random boob window.  The flaps look like she cut it open or something.  Maybe she was hot.
