The Strength of a Female's Character
Okay, okay; you're probably wondering what could have possessed me to draw such an atrocity against proper human anatomy in the first place.
Well, I've been morbidly fascinated by the blog "Escher Girls" on Tumblr as well as the admittedly bothersome, long standing trend of the "broke-back pose" prevalent in female comic book characters. Especially ones that are STRONG!!11!!1!
I heartily recommend checking out that blog. Not only is it hilarious, horrifying and entertaining but it's also quite enlightening and provides a great springboard for discussion. Just don't attempt doing any of these poses in the real world...unless the you love the sound of your spine snapping.
As for drawing this piece itself, it was fun in a lobotomized kind of way.
