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.

The advantage of wearing battle thongs, is that the enemy is too busy looking at your butt to notice that your head is sliding off your shoulders.

Okay, so scary helmeted knight guy, super armored vampire dude, futuristicly clothed gun dude, giant walking castle… and… naked girl with a couple coils around her boobs.  They’re lucky they didn’t make those coils larger, we might not have realized she was meant to be female!

I love how he draws his girls, enough to almost look past the dislocating poses in these.

The first one looks like the blue girl is looking up hoping that we’re the EMTs coming to save her friend.  The second one… am I missing something, or is it way more effective to aim in a boobs and butt pose than I’ve been led to believe? xD  I see it so often, maybe I’m doing it wrong.  I’ll try this next time I play basketball.  (Also… armored top… battle thong bottom… I hope she has good footwork.)

Somebody commenting on this post reminded me of that picture’s existence, so it’s time for another Best of Escher Girls! :D
It’s the boobs and butt pose, but with the twist that she’s doing it while crouching and balancing only on the balls of her feet (and in metal armor.)  Plus, there’s the metal battle thong and that apparently her breasts don’t need protecting, but her nipples do.

New art of Mu-12 from BlazBlue Chronophantasma

Even being mostly a robot, the boobs/butt pose is the best option, I guess?
At least that battle thong is well guarded by those floating blade things.

Wow.  Those two are really dedicated to clubbing.

This is an advertisement I found while browsing a comedy news site.
I was instantly reminded of your tumblr, and a cursory analysis was quite conclusive: Yup, we got an escher girl. The spine is definitely being broken by that full side view of the torso.
What really brings home though is the choice for stamp placement.

Is that a fur thong?  That might get itchy.  Also, nice place for the “free” tag indeed.

I’ve been staring at this for the longest time wondering what in the world is she wearing, and how in the world her boobs are levitating upwards while she is standing straight.

I’m disturbed by the “she has no safe word” implication.  It reminds me of the "women who can’t say no” ad that was on this blog a while ago.
(And that shirt is a fancy scarf.)

I saw a few things on here about a game called “Scarlet Blade.” My curiosity got the best of me and I looked into it. Apparently the ads aren’t misleading. You can only play as female characters and the site’s class descriptions come complete with breast sizes! Here are some of the character designs, in all of their anatomy/armor-design disregarding glory.

I added two more pictures I found.

Was cleaning out some old books and came across this in the back of a manga book. Figured you guys would like to see it <3

Sometimes people say they get sympathy back pains looking at the pictures on this blog.  I’m getting sympathy back pains AND breast pains.  OW. D:
