Welcome to: If Male Superhero Costumes were Designed Like Female Superhero Costumes!
Aaaaa I dunno. I got tired of guys having no idea why girls find female superhero’s costumes kinda sexist, so I, um, made this?
My main goals were: 1) Make it so the first thing you think of when you look at them is sex, whether you want to or not. 2) make it so that any male human who looks at this feels really uncomfortable. 3) make it funny, because, well, it’s kinda hilarious really.
Not trying to start a war here, just wanted to poke a bit of fun.
So, here you go menfolk, welcome to being a girl who likes comics.
Many many many people have messaged me about this post, so I better say something about it! This is absolutely amazing and completely true. I especially love the attention to detail, like how Captain America’s foot is up his butt. I can think of at least a few covers on Escher Girls that has that issue, and it’s usually not one people immediately notice, so, nice job! :D And the whole thing is totally amazing and really highlights the double standard. As I keep saying to “but men are objectified too!”, yes, as power fantasies, not as sexual fantasies.
A lot of people have said that the re-draw links don’t show. Does this work?
Edit: Text of original post included below:
I decided to try and apply a skeletal structure to J. Scott Campbell’s version of “The Little Mermaid”. This was surprisingly harder to do than I thought. Her spine alone took an hour to figure out. And the pelvis— I can’t.
I love how much this particular picture is just like this big challenge mocking people. Like “c’mon, figure out how my body works, I dare you!”
That is seriously amazing work though. I’m really impressed. :)
Hi. I drew this after reading your tumblr. I wanted to see how far I could twist her without going nuts. I don’t know how those other artists manage it, I kept finding myself trying to correct the legs or the torso or the EVERYTHING.
So there you have it, my very own Escher Girl.
This is awesome! :D I love it. Can I use it for like a banner or icon or something?
