Earthworm Jill?

Jill Harness

Ever wonder what Earthworm Jim would look like in a female form? Artist David Stonecipher created an excellent series of drawings featuring character's gender role reversals. There's also Lara Croft as a man and a very sexy version of a female Link from The Legend of Zelda.

While the art is really cool, it also brings up an interesting point about gender roles in video games, particularly for women, who are portrayed a lot less frequently. As a female gamer, I have to admit that I really wish some of these girl characters were real.
