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.

There’s something really weird about art when the character is already reallllly sexualized in outfit and pose, and then the artist (or writer or art director or lead etc) takes it one step further and breaks someone’s back. Like they could have done the pose i did a quick paint over for, and it would have still been cammy boobs runneth over and hot camel toe action or whatever, but that was JUST NOT ENOUGH, NEVER ENOUGH DESU!! seriously, ell-oh-ell guys.

Her costume is so tight that it’s not just giving her an atomic wedgie, but pulling her body towards the viewer.  And her right leg seems to be making a break for it.

Redrew this
I’m certainly not the best at stuff like this, but at least she’s not broken anymore.I could have spread the legs a -little- more to make it more dynamic though.
I also fixed her top/collar cause I couldn’t figure out how they made sense in the other picture. I also gave her shorts under her… kimono-thing. I figured if you knew your dress would constantly give you panty shots, I’d wear shorts under. I think most would do that.
