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.

It’s like the artist just got bored when he got past her waist.  (What’s holding them up by the way?)

Is she slithering out of a hole in his back or something?

"Okay guys, ready?"
"I got the ones below us."
"Charging up and ready to go."
"Hold on, I have to scratch my back."
"Help!  I’m stuck in quicksand and I can’t turn my legs!"

Since Boobs Don’t Work That Way is currently on a bit of a hiatus, I’ll do my duty as a fellow-wtf art-ally and post this. :)
Also, is that a zipper below her breasts?  What… exactly is the point of it?
(and did they SERIOUSLY name a character Psilence?)

I think she was trying to put herself out of her misery, but missed.

I try not to mock superheroine costumes on this blog too much (though sometimes as a side thing, everybody needs hobbies right?)  but… I can’t stop boggling at this one, because it’s not even like her costume is tight against her.  It’s a loose, unzipped jacket (I’m unsure how she WOULD zip it up) and it’s clear she’s not wearing a bra at all, and yes, her bottom does go into a thong, which means she’s wearing some sort of flak thong.  Very protective, I’m sure.

I. Can’t. Stop. Wanting. To. Mock. Her. Outfits.  I’ve seen 3 outfits so far, and they’re all so WTF.  Here, we have the military issue underboob outfit.
(Also that right hand’s finger nails scare me.)

I was on Skype with my friend when I saw this picture as a thumbnail on google image search.  I was in the middle of a sentence and it went exactly like this: “I just meant that that music was- WOAH FUCK WHAT IS THAT.”

I think this is a rare picture where the woman is actually boobs and butting the other way.
What amazes me most though, is that… this isn’t Liefeld.  It shocks me because all of the feet are hidden, but it’s not Liefeld, which means… there are others.

Yes, I do think she does hate you for drawing her like that.
