With all the heat Anita Sarkeesian gets for her Tropes series, you’d think it was a new topic, but Gene Siskel & Roger Ebert had a discussion on a similar theme when they were talking about the influx of slasher movies on their show in 1980.
34 years later and this is STILL relevant
WHOA. I had never seen anything about them doing this.
It’s a shame people remember them for their thumbs.
the more things change…

Oh my god. I can’t even think of any commentary for this.
This is why it’s important to understand human anatomy when you draw, so even if you want to draw women in a stylized superhero style you at least know where the breasts are supposed to sit on a body, and what they look like at rest, or in a bra/without a bra.
(Usually, after a post like this people ask me if I have references/tutorials, so I’m going to be proactive. :) For those who want some quick references, I’ve reblogged a few tutorials in the past on how to draw breasts: here, here, and here. Also there’s a link to a gallery of photos of real breasts to show the diversity of shapes and sizes here. These aren’t meant to replace proper art instruction on anatomy, but it might help for people who can’t access that, or just as a reference/guide.
Also here is the general Escher Girls tag for drawing (and writing) references: www.eschergirls.tumblr.com/tagged/drawing+resources/)
Some art, apparently created by an artist who has never seen any woman’s body and who has no understanding of physics or gravity.

The Lagrangian points are the five locations in an orbital system where the combined gravitational force of two large masses is exactly canceled out by the centrifugal force arising from the rotating reference frame.
At these five points, the net force on a third body (of negligible mass) is 0, allowing the third object to be completely stationary relative to the two other masses. That is, when placed at any of these points, the third body stays perfectly still in the rotating frame.
The first image shows the fields due to the first mass, the second mass, and the rotating reference frame. When added together, these fields generate the effective field shown in the second image. The five Lagrangian points are indicated with gray spheres.
The first three Lagrangian points (labeled L1, L2, and L3) lie in line with the two larger bodies and are considered metastable equilibria. L4 and L5 lie 60° ahead of and behind the second body in its orbit and are considered stable equilibria.
Lagrangian points offer unique advantages for space research, and the Lagrangian points of the Sun-Earth system are currently home to four different satellites.

I watch this show to see her make faces.
