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.

Perspecitve?  We don’t need no stinkin’ perspective!
(do you have an “errant buttock” tag?)

I really should.  And I love that phrasing, so if you don’t mind I’ll use that as the tag. :)

The perspective seems to have suddenly changed under Rogue’s waist so we can see both her buttcheeks.
(Also, Gambit’s legs and hand look odd to me. It’s Greg Land, so I wonder if he referenced/traced different photos and stitched them together.)

One more from Masamune Shirou, who has been featured here before.
This was found by my boyfriend, who knows that I follow this blog, and wanted to share this wonderful abomination.  

I think her buttcheek is sliding off.

This is a card/character named “Ray Spear, the Lone Noble Angel” from a TCG app game titled <Guardian Battle of Glory 栄光のガーディアンバトル>. She is one of the bonus cards given to the player at the beginning of the game, and is quite rare and powerful - but her left butt cheek got on my nerves so much that I can’t use her so often! I’ll be super generous and overlook the panties, but shouldn’t her left butt cheek be smaller than her right butt cheek? It got so that I ended up changing the “leader card (which also shows in your profile)” to another card. What’s more confusing is that in general, the illustrations of this game are quite decent (drawn by multiple artists, as is the norm for TCGs), so why does one of the first major cards feature a figure like this?

This is offical art of the anime series “Dirty Pair Flash”
I found this picture while browsing on the Internet and all I can say is…
um… those girls must be in intense pain to pose like that.. 
Also, I seriously have no idea what’s up with Yuri (The purple haired girl)’s butt.

Fearless Defenders #2 drawn by Will Sliney.
Hela’s boobs and butt and also Valkyrie’s rather silly two armored hemispheres thing. It’s otherwise a really good book with a lot of great women characters, so things like this make me sad.

Ouch, that blow was so powerful, Hela’s butt and leg is trying to flee.

i don’t know if this has already been submitted, but it looks like borderline porn

My personal headcanon is that Avengelyne comics are about a hardworking porn star who also solves crimes.  Right now she’s on the set of a shoot and just realized that her co-star was the one who stole the spatial-distortion device from the government.

“Yawn! What an amazing and refreshing nap I just had!”
I mean, seriously? Found this gem while looking through comic book previews. Cover for Dynamite’s Red Sonja: Unchained series by Mel Rubi. I honestly don’t know how to properly tag it, since “WTF did I just see” isn’t an option here.

I think it&#8217;s time for another caption contest! 
And for this contest, I&#8217;m happy to announce there will be a prize for the winner courtesy of Girl In Four Colors!!! :D  (The artist behind the Escher Girls Centaur Badge.)
The winner will get a free greyscale small sketch commission (normally she charges $15) and can order a print, canvas, etc of it from society6.  (That part you&#8217;d have to pay for, because it&#8217;s an external service, but it&#8217;s still 50% off the total price.)
Check out her commissions page here for her regular prices if you&#8217;d be interested in commissioning her for other things, or to check out her work to see her style. :)
So that&#8217;s pretty cool! :D  It&#8217;s really awesome for her to be willing to do this. :3   And hopefully will make the contest a bit more fun.  The winning caption will be chosen by me and her.
Anyway, onto the caption contest!
What do you think is going on?  What&#8217;s Red Sonja&#8217;s expression saying?

This is a promotional poster for the Lovecraftian anime Haiyore! Nyaruko-san from Nyantype magazine. This boobs and butt pose reminds me of the geometry in R’lyeh.

She looks a little like one of those donut-shaped droid control ships from the Star Wars prequels.

It looks like her left leg was just tacked haphazardly to the back of her right buttcheek to give us that oh so necessary boobs and butt.  Also, there&#8217;s some serious static cling going on.
