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.

Well this is my first ever redraw that I want to submit to this awesome blog. Mostly out of anger about this post and how this completely goes against about what women are in the world of Star Trek. I mean you can have a woman dressing in something like this and not have it be super sexualized for the male gaze, especially since women are considered equals in the Federation and would be more inclined to wear actual uniforms.
If you going to do something like that, then at the very least make one for the guys too.

(Sorry for the quick slop coloring job I did these in like 30 minutes)

Serious case of spine injury

Tactical battle droids still have some kinks that need to be worked out before they’re combat ready.

I just got published in this eMag, New Realm Magazine, and while I’m super thrilled, as a follower of this blog, I noticed the art is a total boobs and butt pose. Also, WHERE ARE HER NIPPLES!?

The realm is so new that anatomy and physics and stuff haven’t been invented yet.
(Congratulations on being published. :D )
