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.

Ragnarok OWSPINE
So I saw the open beta for Ragnarok Online 2 has been released. Goodie, RO was my first MMO so I’ll try it out.
And then I see the background image of the website… I don’t think I’ll need to explain much here any longer.

I was told today that the new version of Ragnarok Online 2 was available for download. Being an old RO fan, I went right away to the official website to register, and found this in its background image.
It seems the game revamp has given the Kafras  swivel waists, so they can quickly assist all the travelers that come to them for help.(also, I know the sign would stand for “Prontera”, the game’s capital city, but I just couldn’t help but think that she was offering pron for 1 zeny :P)

This was on Escher Girls before, but I put the whole design and it ended up she looked really small and it was hard to make out.  I’ll do this repost so people can see it more clearly. :)

So this is my first ever redraw - I’m kind of a beginner artist so my anatomy will in no way be perfect but I’ve tried! I’ve changed the position of the legs and torso to fix the boobs and butt pose - it looked uncomfortable - and I’ve changed her facial expression slightly in an attempt to explain her pose (she’s yawning and stretching now). Not quite sure what was going on with the clothes so I left it (tour guide postman witch maid?). I love your blog, by the way!

Thank you :)

Ragnarok Online 2: Even her face screams in pain. And I have no idea if that’s meant to be a backpack or a handbag or what. Her left leg is just having adventures all on its own too.
And she’s meant to be the Help lady. She needs help far more than I.

This has been on the blog before, but without the energy blast and mist, this is much more clear, and still just as odd.
