Just Peachy by JohnSu Just Peachy by JohnSu
Alright, so I haven't drawn in a while and I was starting to feel like "You know what? I want to draw," so I drew. It didn't help that I didn't know what to draw either, but that's not a good reason to not draw, right?

I had been playing some Koumajou Densetsu that weekend and was really impressed by the artwork in there and thought to try emulating the style as an exercise. I think I got about 40% of the way there before I discovered I didn't know what I was doing and how to make that final 60%. I guess that's why some people ask for art tutorials? Up until now it had always seemed a little silly to me to ask "how do you draw ___?" You see it, and then you draw it - done! Right? It's a method that works well enough for anime and manga, but man, a lot of these CG techniques are not as intuitive.

Anyhow, here's some Princess Peach, in case you couldn't figure out who she was. I decided to take some artistic liberties and try making her look a little more refined and a little less...like a moron? She has this permanent "oh!" face in some pictures that doesn't make her look too bright. Well, regardless of how rudely I describe a lady, it was a fun piece that took roughly 4 days to complete, and I got some good lighting practice on this. It's not my usual style, but it's fun to stand up and stretch every once in a while.

Sometimes I wonder why DO they make their characters have odd and stupid expressions of themselves... At-least now I can see her being a princess, rather than Beverly Hills next Homecoming Queen. Well done X3.

I agree, she is frequently given faces that make her look so dumb. Its awesomely refreshing to see her look smart. I love the peach on the her wrap thing too!Clap

This is beautiful. There's so much sexy art of one Nintendo gal or another, but there isn't much really _beautiful_ art like this. Just plain jaw-droppingly "omg shes so pretty". We need more of this stuff.

O my garsh. I love the detial. Like the peach water stain on her shoulder (you did the fabric and the way it flows brilliantly by the way) to the ruffles and the perfect shading and especially the eyes. those eyes are extraordinary. I wouldn't have chosen them myself, she might have been seen with more curious playfull eyes, (even though she's been through so much" but I love it. WHat I would personaly change are the cherry blossoms. I would have made less on the floor and made her on a dirt path or something (maybe fancy brick, white of course) and made more flowing in the wind around her to create a softer more real tone. BUt excellent job over all, if you even read this.

There's something incredibly regal about this. Plus, Peach looks pretty mature. The colors, the dress, and ah, she looks so mysterious rather than just cute. Very beautiful.

She looks like a moron in official Nintendo art because her eyes are huge, and in certain poses crossed. Especially when she's facing the viewer.
