I’ve had a tough time trying to show people why the designs from Dragon’s Crown disturb me so much. More than any illustrations I’ve ever seen, the poses these women are in look supremely - unbearably, even - awkward, if not downright painful. So… how do I aptly demonstrate that?
Then I remembered Hawkeye.

Uncanny X-Men 12 Battle of the Atom part 4 Milo Manara variant cover
Schaudy drew a thing and then I was like, “I need to color that.”
Look, we’re no Aja/Hollingsworth, but gosh darn it we try.

A submission for The Hawkeye Initiative! (Uses Clint Barton as well as other male comic characters to illustrate how contorted and hyper-sexualized women are commonly drawn in comics.)
I based it off a pinup of Black Widow… so I don’t know if it counts, but it’s still silly to me anyway. :U
