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.

This is a rare butt and boobs pose with small breasts which makes it even more difficult!  Also once she straightens out, one buttcheek is gonna be lower than the other.

Artwork by Masamune Shirow (creator of Ghost in the Shell) for his western comedy manga “Wild Wet West.” Most of the art for the series features scantily clad outlaw girls sucking on phallic cigars, holding guns, and contorting their shiny, plasticine bodies into ridiculous poses. I was impressed by the weirdness going on with the girl in the background. This pic has them wearing more clothing than usual.

Well, it’s a comedy fan-service manga I presume, so the costumes are expected.   But yeah, that’s a boobs and butt pose in the background.  I like how we seem to be looking up at her butt and down at her boobs.

One more from Masamune Shirou, who has been featured here before.
This was found by my boyfriend, who knows that I follow this blog, and wanted to share this wonderful abomination.  

I think her buttcheek is sliding off.

thought your followers might get a kick out of this one.

In the future, female soldiers are made from liquid metal and special ring magnets are used to manipulate them into the proper human forms.

I found this picture on a lunchbox at a convention I went to this weekend. I couldn’t wrap my head around the pose so I tried to draw it from the side. I regret that decision wholeheartedly.

This picture has been on Escher Girls before, and it’s just bizarre now as before. The side view make it look even weirder.

Maybe it implies the lunch that’s found inside will be lopsided.
