I'll Tumblr 4 Ya: ESCHER GIRLS

Ladies and gentlemen, it's time for the debut of "I'll Tumblr 4 Ya", a new sporadic (as always) feature where I spotlight a tumblr that I really enjoy viewing and encourage you folks to read it. Today, I'm focusing on "Escher Girls", the new tumblr from Ami Angelwings, in which Ami showcases pictures of female comic book characters in impossible and/or ridiculous poses because the artist needed to give the readers fan service, anatomical considerations be damned.

Too often, our heroines are drawn to look like they've been sneaking into Ralph Dibny's Gingold stash, with anatomies that seems to indicate a lack of internal organs and body poses which would indicate severe chiropractic difficulties. There is a veritable gold mine of material ripe for ridicule, and it's great that Ami is able to mine it and fill a niche.

Well played, Ami!

And here's one, on me.

This one's the cover of Buffy The Vampire Slayer#3, drawn by Jo Chen, featuring Willow. Who knew witchcraft could look so painful?

Have you ever actually tried to pose like some of these drawings? Painful doesn't even begin to describe it. I remember trying to do the Mary Jane Statue pose a while back, and thought I would dislocate my back.

I try all of the poses I put up before I put them up just to see if they're possible, or how close I get. My back hates me right now xD And I keep falling over XD

Anatomy is your friend, boys. Learn to draw! Speaking of which, have you seen the spoof that Kate Beaton has done on this very subject.
