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.

Is this a drawing of two women or one?
From the Queen’s Blade manga.

Neither.  I know a Decepticon when I see one.
(Seriously, even with how many Escher Girls I look at for this blog, this one caught me off guard, it took me a couple seconds to process that’s her BUTT)

This is Airi from Queen’s Blade. I know she isn’t corporeal all the time, but this is ridiculous.

Nothing about her looks like she’s twisting or turning until BAM, her boobs are facing you!

You’ve heard of cubism, this is boobism.

I saw this one on here a while ago and decided to redraw it from a different angle

My favourite redraws are the ones that show what the character would look like from another perspective.  I think sometimes we’re so used to seeing women portrayed this way, or so used to seeing certain parts of a woman that it starts to look normal, and showing it from another angle really helps.

Queen’s Blade… The game!
So I’m pretty sure we all know about the anime that tries (and fails) to be some kind of action flick. Well looks like they made a game out of it. No males in the game at all, but I think they’re supposed to be.. androids? Help me out here.

How is that “underwear” staying on? -_o

Sorry to say but the image that was used in the Cyber Monster website may have been stolen. The Character they used is Leina from the manga/Anime Queens Blade. Where apparently  everyone has a shortage of metal for armor. And if they are wearing clothes them the pink slime girl in front will melt them off with her acid booby milk, … I’m not Joking.

A lot of people pointed this out.  Apparently the Cyber Monster website stole the art from Queen’s Blade to advertise their game. o_O
(Are that girl’s breasts being covered up by hands coming from her hair?)

From the Queen’s Blade combat books.
This is so bad, I really don’t know what to say…

This is one of the most painful things I’ve seen while running this blog.
