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.

At this point the usual butt and boobs pose is almost pedestrian. XD

It’s not just the usual pose, look at her ribs.  They should keep going down her body, instead it appears she’s managed to swivel IN BETWEEN her rib cage!

The real Red Sonja broke her back earlier, so Spider-Man had to make do with kicking a Red Sonja Roly-Poly toy into his enemies.

Look at where her butt and back leg is… and then look at her torso.  She’s not even twisting to do the butt and boobs pose, her hip and butt cheek are just completely in the wrong place!

That’s the most stoned fighting expression ever.  It’s probably the medication she’s on for her dislocated hip.

That’s a very elegantly displayed dislocated body.

An escher girl seen at the Superheroes memebase. Ugh…I don’t even…

Various body parts of hers appear to be going in the wrong direction too.  Note to artist: sexual innuendo doesn’t work if the readers are too busy going WTF at all the dislocated stuff.

Don’t worry.  Mom will buy you a new barbie.

This has to be honestly one of the most awkward and bizarre fighting poses ever.  Of course, this could all be solved if Red Sonja was allowed to FACE her enemies, instead of having to strike a swimsuit model pose for us and then try to figure out how to stab the snake.  I actually give her credit for even trying.
Also how is her scale bikini top staying on?
