Anonymous asked: First of all, I love this blog - my friend toughlovemuse sent me here. My question is about the fathom fix - I totally agree with you about the spine, boobs, collarbone etc, but it seems to me like the action in the picture is totally different. In the first, it's a moment of stillness - she's just seen something that got her attention, and has stopped to look. In the second,...
Snafflewyrm: Black Cat Redraw →
eschergirls: snafflewyrm: For everyone who doesn’t know what the Esher Girls tumblr is (http://eschergirls.tumblr.com/) - it’s a fantastic little blog where the anatomy of female characters in comic books, which LOOKS right at first glance, is broken down to show its crazy (usually spine breaking) ridiculousness. This is the original image I chose to redraw: Here are the two main physical...
eschergirls: thebottled submitted: I’ve wanted to do one of these redraw/fix posts since watching this blog. I am not an anatomy expert but I couldn’t…I just… something had to be done. First, to clear the air, the beast is grabbing her arm in the original not her body. After connecting her torso with her waist I can understand how some might have thought she was being squeezed to death. ...
andersonrandom asked: One of the arguments that came up when I was discussing how female figures were over-sexualized in comics with my friends was how a woman who was supposed to be a "strong female character" is depicted in such provocative posing, costume and attitude that it sort of takes away from the character's personality. "No, it's part of who she is. She's supposed to be sexual...
CAUSE SHE'S A NINJA
blamerades said: I just wanted to share this image with you - - from a recent issue of Marvel’s Generation Hope, and maybe get your thoughts. The pose is…it’s something special. Yes, it is, and it has been posted before in Eschergirls and even tackled by Toxicnotebook here at Lesstitsnass. This pose is wrong on so many levels it’s not even funny. Heck, it even got...
seithon asked: Had a discussion with an american friend the other night. I'm starting to come to the realization that you can't seem to put romance or sexual content in something in american without just dropping it straight into the porn category. Sexual or sensual characters in comic books are written about as well as characters from a porn film it seems :/ What's your opinion on this?
eclode asked: My comic teacher and i had a couple-o arguments regarding women in comics. "You need to SELL your future comics", he kept saying. "You'll draw for people who will BUY it [tits and asses]" No, I told him, I won't. One day, I'm going to draw for people who will appreciate my story and my style. Who will think of my fem characters as of people, not objects. He...
The Photoshop King and I
eschergirls: basementtroll submitted: Her lower body was running away from her rubber arm, so I fixed her in Photoshop. Just ignore the bits where I was too lazy to make my changes seamless. By the way, her leg is thicker because I didn’t bother keeping it slim when I was shifting stuff around with the warp transformation tool. Wow. Those small changes make a huge difference. Of course,...
I love eschergirls with much love. Just so you... →
April starts in such a lovely way over there.
Anonymous asked: Hey there, I'm a fan but not a tumblr user or even into US-style mainstream comics at all. I just come here to laugh at / dig the images. Re: Bleez, I first learned of her over at Eschergirls and had to find a character bio to find out what was up with the extremely silly costume. I have a hard time relating to any supers at all, and her story is as silly as they come - except that her entire...
utopiangem asked: Just want to thank you for running a quality redraw blog. And for being a friendly person to boot.
Wherein I address Bleez
Well, here’s a particularly butt-central Bleez one. (again, can’t put links in asks) Also this: For future reference, guys, you can use the submitting link to send me images. I know I said I want edits in there, but it turns out that if I want something to be rebloggable, it has to be in the form of a proper post and not a question. And when you use the submit function, you...
