Princess Mario RPG - Page Seven by FieryJinx Princess Mario RPG - Page Seven by FieryJinx
Commissioned by :iconhappy-tger:

Page Seven of Seven in a commissioned story based on my Princess Mario fan comic. The premise is about a Princess Mario video game that gets a little too real for one of it's players.

So in case anyone asks, I consider this as part of the Princess Mario canon. That is to say, it takes place after the events of the main Princess Mario story. The other Princess Mario commission I did, found here, is also canon, but is more like an alternate ending than a sequel. If anyone is ever interested in commissioning me for more Princess Mario works, I always do my best to work with patrons in making them fit both the story and style of the original material, and this piece is no exception.

This one was a lot of fun to work on, but man was it a lot of work. Making over a dozen different character designs is one thing, but trying to to tell a story through their design and without words, while also making them look natural in a Mario RPG/Paper Mario style setting... it was challenging. I suppose I could have made all the side characters into Toads and just given them different colors... 

Nah that would be stupid.

"Verily, my dude" is now my favorite anachronistic phrase.

For a moment I thought the evil shade was part of the protagonist now :0

Also, Mario is not amused heh

I like to think of our leading man/lady as bisexual, so she was happy marrying a prince. Though I wonder if she'd ever tire of the game world and miss reality. *shrugs* Cute story.

Awesome story to read i had a fun time reading this seven page story. I can't wait to see what story you have planned next for Princess Mario maybe a girls day out with the other Princess or meeting Bowers Jr again.

I never understood non-completionists, myself. Why sacrifice percent total for some time tally?
Reply

Well the simple answer is that most games are designed to be finished, not completed, so it's often less fun to take the time to complete a game than just beat it and move on to something else.

Ofc that does depend on the game - some games ARE designed to be completed rather than beaten - take Mario Odyssey for example. I'd argue it's actually more fun to complete than simply beat. On the flip side, Mario Galaxy 2 is an absolute chore to complete, but a blast to simply play through.

Since I beat Mario Galaxy 2 in three days the first time, I wanted more, as it seemed far too quick and easy. So I eventually got everything in it, and THEN I felt truly satisfied.

Real talk I absolutely love to 100% Mario Galaxy 2. It might actually be my favorite video game.

Ohh, the Goomba princess was Goombario! :o

It's more like he was inspired by Goombario and Goombella. He's the talkative, energetic Goomba who is way more likable than a Goomba should be.

Honestly, it might have made for a pretty awesome reveal to show that it was Goombario the whole time. Wish I had thought of that ^_____^;;;;

Ha ha, if it makes you feel better, your idea was so good that I actually looked up Goombario's design and if they were close, I was gonna be like "Y-yeah! It's totally him!"

Great design on the wedding dress. The shading and fabric effects came off quite well.
