A nice composition and a nice "aged painting" technique, thank you for sharing it ;-)

You just nailed everything about this.

It is a little sad that her dress design isn't as intricate as a real princess's would have been, but since the background paintings are so simple as well, tons of fiddly-bits wouldn't have worked.

awesome indeed!

Can I ask where you got the canvas texture? :)
Photia Featured By Owner May 7, 2013
Of course! It's been a while, but I'm pretty sure it's from - [link] or something like it.
lulles Featured By Owner May 7, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Oh so it wasn't really a texture of a crackled canvas! So clever :] Thanks for the link!

I love the way you drew her, this is really a nice job!

Amazing :D!

I love it! You really nailed the royal portrait style you were going for, both the art style as well as the textures and coloring really do make it feel like an old painting. :D The detail of how some of the paintings are ones from Mario 64 as well as stuff from the other games is a really cool touch too! Overall, really awesome job! I am definitely faving this one. ^v^

I saw this on Yahoo, this is a very beautiful rendition of the character.
You should be proud of your work! :)

I like this. Although she is writing a letter in the drawing - At a first quick glance, I first thought that Peach signed on the declaration of independence (or something similar).

really pretty! nice job :D

Oh my god, that is incredible! Really love how some of the paintings resemble the ones in Mario 64, plus even the coloring and cracks look so realistic. We don't often see a dignified princess side of Peach. Great work!
JustANoobInDrawing Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Awesome job on the realism. It actually looks like a portrait of an actual person instead of a fictional character, which I like a lot :)

I also absolutely love the color choices that make the painting look antique and the pose that also looks like the Vistorian Era. And the best effect you could add to the portrait was the "old painting" effect. It is incredible!!! :D Is it a texture?
Another thing I must appreciate is the paintings in the background, like the one of the Bob-Ombs, it gives a really nice touch to the pic overall. and the effects the paper of the letter has are amazing as well. I really like the outcome. IŽd buy this. :D
TMystery Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2011
Wow! I've never thought about a "real life" looking Princess Peach.

Since Peach isn't smiling, it reminds me of one of those Victorian era portraits
Also I like the touches like the portraits in the background, the painting of the Super Mario Bros. 3 scene, and the bomb-ombs

Now, as for the letter, what is it? Is it an order authorizing the execution of a traitor? An approval of the committee's proposed budget? A list of items to order at the general store?
jeremyjosh Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2011  Student Digital Artist
I thought it was a letter to mario with a P attached. lol
TMystery Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2011
That's a good possibility too :)

I'm not a fan of Princess Peach, but I can really appreciate this! I love the antique look, the detail with the pictures on the wall and the letter, and how Peach herself looks realistic, but still with that big-eyed, cute face.
TsuTheTiger Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2011
... Beautiful.
Daniel-Link Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
awesome! her face looks beautiful, I like her expression
Antaus Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Dude, this has GOT to be the best Peach I've ever seen. Looks like her Nintendo self, yet at the same time she looks like a real woman, wow!
Synthetic-Xlora Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2010
This has to be the best fanart I have ever seen of Princess Peach, no lie. This is incredible.
Girl-With-Wings13 Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
oh my gosh, that is awesome!!!!!!! XD it is so realistic!!!! :D love it!
SakuraSnowdown Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2010
Oh my Goof! This is superb! I would honestly pay someone to re-paint it, and then put it in a really huge frame ^^
moonpuppy4 Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2010
That is very well done! I like the style, very nice, and the shading is perfect! You did a great job on the details, like adding the pictures in the back, you didn't just make them half-assed and blur them(like some people would)!
One thing I will point out, though, is that her glove on the right(so her left) has more of a point to the middle then the other one, but it's not like that's a big detail!(have I just made an ass of myself?)
:XD: great work!
Photia Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2010
Haha, I totally didn't even notice that. Maybe the matching glove was in the wash? Thanks for pointing it out.
moonpuppy4 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2010
you're welcome XD sometimes I'm too observant for my own good!
pnkpantherpolizzi Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2010
This is one of my favorites. It's so against the grain! I'm so used to seeing Peach done in cute animated style. This is so realistic looking to me.

this looks as if it was painted in the 18th century...
Abyssopelagic Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2010  Student General Artist
Dude, am I going to be able to get a print of this at FanExpo? This is a very original concept for the character!
Photia Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2010
You will be able to get so many prints of this at Fan Expo (in fancy frames, no less)! I look forward to seeing you there!
