Princess Saves Self Stamp by Mirz123 Princess Saves Self Stamp by Mirz123
Another stamp! After a bunch of pixels. I think I'm getting my groove back!

This is a stamp I wanted to do a few days ago, but there was a DD 6-word story with a similar theme. I was fearful people would feel I stole the idea. This is actually one I've had for a while, and it's similar to this shirt design which is very cool ---> [link]

I should note, I'm not of the radical thinking that women have to be super-powered and always be the dominant one--and can't be a bit helpless sometimes. I don't think a woman should never have a man help her. I quite like having my knight in shining armor swoop in to rescue me. But I also think it's important to be strong enough to save yourself, if you need to.

Anyhow, I've done a dragon before, and even a similar pose to this for my emote journal, but had to modify it all heavily for this piece. Had to create a flying dragon snorting fire and do the sword animation. I didn't want to make the piece too complicated, though, as I felt minimal animation would work best.

Boy, was it a challenge doing that tiny castle in the background--and most of it is obscured. I may upload it on its own later.

Oh, and I specifically created the medieval-inspired stamp base (which is slightly scalloped) for this piece.

:happybounce: You do NOT need a subscription to use this stamp. Due to dA changes, you can now use it in your journal or ID box, even if you are not a pay-member. Simply cut-and-paste the thumbcode into your journal and you'll post the stamp!!

As with most of my pixel work, you may use this on and off deviantART, without my permission. The only thing I ask is that you keep the file name in tact and don't remove any credit information. Also, if you use, let me know as it encourages me to make more free-use art.

Personally, I like to have the knight princess balance each other out.  Really adds some nice chemistry.

Love this so much! I feel there needs to be more female superheroes. XD  Prefer to save myself than a knight in shining armor. Knight in shining armor just isn't my style.XD

You would think that one princess would decide it was a good idea to defend herself after the thousandth time herself, her kingdom, and her subjects were put in peril by the same threat.  LOOKIN' AT YOU PEACH. 

The only time Peach defended herself in a canon Mario game was Super Princess Peach, when she utilized the power of hormones to overcome her obstacles!  :lol:

If Peach can beat Bowser in the SSBM roster, why does she play the dame in every Mario game?

Peach can actually defend herself as well. belive it or not there's at least 4 game's where she can defend and fight for herself they are super princess peach super smash bros melee super mario bros 2 and super smash brother's brawl and that to an addition for super mario world 3d and SSB4 coming out in the future as well as party game's, so she is not overly incapable of defending herself. But I respect your opinion in a short sentance. :nod:

You don't need one.

For a while deviants without a subscriptions could not. But now, dA allows them to be used in journals. Just cut-and-paste the thumbcode (located in the bar to the right of the deviation) into your journal box or ID and you'll be able to post your stamp!

I used to always pretend to be the dragon, back when princesses still needed knights.
Also, I hate to bother you with such a stupid question, but what is a 'thumbcode'? :B
