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.

Artists really need to learn that they can’t just shove legs anywhere they want on a female figure. XD

Poor Psylocke, she gets so abused by artists.  Here, it looks like somebody took a chunk out of her back, plus there’s that butt/boobs pose again… and where’s her other arm? xD

I’m shocked she has the nutrients to grow all that long, healthy hair when it appears she doesn’t even have the space for organs in her torso.

Heaven doesn’t feed its angels very well apparently.  And where are all of her “clothes” attaching to?

Dislocated hips, broken ribs, organs carved out… this is why you should armor more than just your legs.

When your living women’s limbs and bodies are about the same size as a decaying corpse’s and the corpse’s breasts look the same as the living women’s… it means you can’t draw either.

Ms. Flexispine on the left’s breasts are weird.  One is pointing sideways, and the other is much larger.  No wonder they cut out boob holes in her armor, it’s easier than custom making her breastplate!
(Also thin ninja girl is thin.)
