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!!

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

Sometimes they are appropriate, but there is nothing that stops a princess for kicking some butt. :D

I agree. :la:

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:
