I'm not gonna lie, I've been a fan of Princess Peach way back in the days of Super Mario Bros. 2 when she originally gained her completely irrational ability to float places and was known as Princess Toadstool in America. When they first introduced the name "Peach" to the states in Mario 64 by signing her letter to Mario with it after she had written "Princess Toadstool", I was -convinced- for the longest time that it was a postscript telling him what flavor cake he was getting.
In hindsight I should've included a frying pan because her best role is arguably Super Mario RPG, in my opinion. I think that was when the love truly began, or at least was realized?
Anyway, this was done right before Fanime 2008 as a print. A lot of my CG work lately had been done by painting the figures first and then outlining afterwards, so this was a return to the olden ways of doing the detailed linework first followed by the colors later.
