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 was scrolling through Escher Girls and found this picture, and thought, “Well, why not redraw??” So I did. :3 in the original pic, I thought that the face and chest were fine (though her breasts were unrealistically large and perky) but then ribs and below were really quite contorted into an impossible angle. I tried to redraw her a little more realistically while trying to keep the, ‘sexy’ feel to her.
