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.

Scott has a flamethrower.  <3
Bonus: shirtless Wolverine, if you like that sort of thing.  :-)

How can you trace your art from photos and still mess up anatomy that badly!? (check Blonde girl’s legs, Brunette girl’s right arm placement, Psylocke’s weird hand and vampire face)

I would feel bad that Emma seems to be breaking apart, but since Wolverine&#8217;s arm is about to explode, it&#8217;ll all be over soon anyway.

1) Just because she has 6 arms doesn&#8217;t mean you have to draw her torso like a centipede.
2) I&#8217;ve seen crotch legs&#8230; this is the first time I&#8217;ve seen a crotch arm.

She either has the longest pair of breasts EVER or this is the worst example of collarboobs yet.

So she has one boob, and it&#8217;s a collarboob, and she has the godmother of all crotchlegs.  Who the heck did Land photo-reference for this!?

Won&#8217;t the troll be surprised when her torso spins another 90 degrees and she shoots him in the face.

If there was a chest burster inside one of my boobs, I&#8217;d be screaming too.
Edit: I didn&#8217;t even notice Wolverine&#8217;s exploding bicep!  What&#8217;s hilarious, is that this is the second Greg Land picture with falling-apart women where Wolverine&#8217;s bicep is exploding in the background.
