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 watch this guy on deviantart, he has a lot of skill and a repetitive but nice style. He’s done World of Warcraft cards, commissions, and I’m sure other things as well. He almost always depicts women who are in shape and boobs that always sorta irk me, but overall nothing particularly Escher Girl ‘style’.

….Until this image.

At first I was like, ‘aw there are those weird perfectly circular armor huggin boobs again, all well.’ Then I saw the woman on the left. There the girl is supposedly in the foreground aiming at the goblin on the middle ground. Her body seems to have the ability to simultaneously exist in a profile and three quarter view all at once. All whilst aiming at a goblin who seems so much bigger than her, despite the fact she’s aiming inward from the frontal plane. (Don’t think I didn’t notice that if she was drawn to size accurately on that frontal plane, her butt wouldn’t be able to be visible.)

Not sure if any of you wow, but goblins are TINY. And now that I look again..not sure what pose that purple night elf is pulling there either.

My friend pointed out that we’ve got three different women, each facing a different direction, yet all their breasts are pointed at us.

A piece of “art” from the official World of Warcraft trading card game
Genzoman is a professional artist that does art for many official video game products.  He’s drawn a lot of art for the World of Warcraft trading card game, some of it much better than others.  Take a look at this piece featuring a lady blood elf, titled “Meltdown”.
Genzoman in general has issues with making rushed pictures with odd anatomy, hidden feet, and skintight clothing, but this one takes the cake.

It’s for the Blizzard TCG. (Specifically ”WOW TCG “Betrayal of the Guardian”“.)

I know she’s a succubus, but still, how is her leg there? And her shoulders are so far up so you can see her breasts. It makes it look quite odd.

Also what is going on with her butt and her spine? I mean it just jerks. We can see the line to the crotch area and that is one interesting shape. (Not to mention her upper back. Ow?) Also the breasts are a bit of an interesting shape, I’d say it’s because she’s pushing her chest out, but I don’t think she is.

But that leg. That left leg. Wow.

Wincenworks submitted a quick edit he made for where her butt should be given where we see her torso & beginning of her pelvis (he wants it to be clear it’s not a “fix” or a “better” pose, just putting it in line with her pelvic line)  Maybe succubbi have the power to dislocate a butt cheek/leg in order to better seduce people from the side.
