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.

Her legs are at least 65% of her body mass. Artist is Rob Liefeld, I believe. 

I was actually saving that for a special occasion, because it’s my personal favourite example of Liefeld’s work, but since you submitted it, here it is.  She really looks like she’s an Imperial AT-ST walker or something.

Not sure if this one has been posted before, but somebody did take note that she’s 9 1/2 heads tall, with 6 of that being legs…

This has been posted before, but never with that heads comparison.  It’s sad my reaction is “only 9.5 heads?” xD

Argh I was a little too hasty with my submission and saw some little mistakes. Fix’d now.

Another great redraw!  Love the costume change too and that you based it on an older costume. :)
Edit: I missed this last night, but like others have said, an hourglass figure is possible without a corset and many people have that body type.

I guess Thor can only be killed if interpretative dance is involved.

AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH

Well, you said something about interpretive dancing, so…

My only regret is that photoshop wouldn’t let me save it with a faster frame rate. I guess she’s slow dancing. XD

This is so amazing.
