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.

I assume that these figures are meant to be displayed on a shelf where people can’t see the other side, because I think the other side would be rather uninteresting.

Her costume is so tight that it’s not just giving her an atomic wedgie, but pulling her body towards the viewer.  And her right leg seems to be making a break for it.

Luckily, M. Bison provides great health insurance.  Unfortunately, it’s only good at doctors that accept Bison dollars.

Cover from Street Fighter Classic Volume 3: Psycho Crusher by Ken Siu-Chong, Jeffrey ‘Chamba’ Cruz, and Various (released May 6, 2014)
I find it worrying that as Chun-Li makes a back flip, her internal organ-less torso is flat like a thick piece of cardboard. Same goes for the way she’s bending right below her boobs. It’s almost as if the artist forgot that spines (and rib cages, or her apparent lack of, for that matter) don’t work that way.

Chun Li is in the process of using her newly learned 2 dimensional technique to dodge attacks.

Annnd we have a new contestant for top helicopter woman! 

This one is even more impressive because she’s not swiveling at the waist but apparently from her rib cage.  It’s like a combination of the Biohazard and Black Widow poses.
