Escher Girls

Float like a butterfly, Sting like a WTF?

A blog to archive and showcase the prevalence of certain ways women are depicted in illustrated pop media, such as how women are posed, drawn, distorted, and/or sexualized out of context, often in ridiculous ways that sacrifice storytelling.

cover of Udon Comics' Street Fighter: Sci-Fi & Fantasy Special showing Cammy wearing a V cut version of her green jumpsuit that has a big V hole in her chest to show her breasts and is just strips of fabric across her breasts down to her panties and green leggings, she's in rollerskates and carrying 2 guns (like her form in the Dreamcast game Cannon Spike) and in a boobs and butt pose with her legs bent and going to the right and her chest turned towards us


TFW you accidentally snap the Cammy doll in half and then hastily tried to glue her back together before M. Bison gets home.

textless art of character "Bayushi Kurumi" from The Legend of The 5 Rings CCG showing a dark haired Asian woman wear a red domino mask in a red top with her breasts pushing upward and out under her chin, her legs are pushed upwards with her legs bent as she lays down on the bed, her legs look weird and one might be detached from her body behind the other leg

"oh i found an L5R card with some escher worthy art"

She's trying to distract you with her legs so you don't notice her smuggling fruit out of your bed.

page from PLAY Magazine's Girls of Gaming vol. 6 showing the Ikki Tousen girls Hakufu, Ryofu, Kanu, and Ryomo, 3 of them are in short plaid school girl skirts and outfits and 2 of them are facing the audience and one is turned away in a boobs and butt pose, the final girl has long blonde hair and is in the background

Casual Boobs and Butt posing

Eyepatch girl is trying to look nonchalant about having her feet glued to the ground while she poses with her friends.

card art from Magic Knight Armageddon mobile game that depicts an anime girl with purple eyes in a purple and white bikini with a gun for her arm, she is standing in a boobs and butt pose with her butt facing the audience and her torso turned to show her breasts

But what are the belts for?

Boobs and butt pose aside, I kinda like how her outfit looks like she murdered Frieza from Dragon Ball and made clothes (and random belts) out of him. xD 

cover of "Penny for your Soul: Pestilence #6" comic book from Big Dog Ink showing a white woman with long blonde hair and a halo and golden energy wings like an angel, she is in a blue and white bikini top and bottom with stockings on, her legs are spread forward and back and bent at the knees, her stomch is extremely plasticine and stretched so her chest is thrust forward

TFW Your Entire Torso is Imploding

Pictured: an unhappy angel getting indigestion from apparently swallowing an entire black hole.

cover of "Codes: Sisters of Battle" from Warhammer 40,000 showing a white haired woman holding a sword in a military outfit standing with one leg raised, she's wearing boots that are pointed straight down from her ankle (not pointed curved like a high heel, but straight down) so she's standing on the tips of her toes with a high heel at the back

Getting To The Pointe

"File this under "The artist's barely disguised fetish"

It took me a minute to realize, but she's supposed to be wearing this style of fetish shoe (ballet heels).
