Mario: P5 - Peach's Parents by saiiko Mario: P5 - Peach's Parents by saiiko
I should've finished this long ago, since their profile was one of the most important ones. :P

After looking at the "completed" version I figure people were going to wonder "where are Peach's parents?" The answer? Monica hasn't design them. =P So I figured, I'd give it a try since it was already a family tree anyway. :) Besides, I'm not the first to do this.

The inspiration behind both designs?

King George Toadstool: A name that I really just whipped out from my head. (Blame World History) It was either, George or Phillip. XP;; I have a tendency to give baggy clothings. I bogged up on that and now one sleeve is longer than the other....I figure the king should have some Toad characteristics (such as how I do the eyes). I looked at Toadsworth's design, and since he's still Peach's most loyal advisor, I thought maybe he and the king were best friends? :] He's not a pure Toad. I also wanted him to be somewhat short to add variety to this couple, instead of having one stubby husband and a tall wife like Monica's design of Marco and Louise. (It fits them ;)) Obviously I remembered the King design from the old Mario comics by Valiant too. HIS HAIR COLOR IS YELLOW-BASED! It seems off-color because I darkened to give it an aged, dirty pale blond effect.

Queen Melody Toadstool: I have another horrible tendency to make women frail and delicate looking :shrug:, and she probably looks too young for her age. Unlike Daisy who seems to be able to hang around outside Sarasaland, Peach is pretty much the only main monarch of the MK, and I think her parents would've past on if that is the case. The inspiration behind Melody are Lady Marian (Robin Hood), Princess Rosalina, and =Captain-Jamesman's design version of Peach's mom, Princess Passion [link]

I really wanted to give her star characteristics and very bright yellow hair, which would've indicated some connection to Rosalina and her mom. Melody's dress does resemble Rosalina's a bit. ;) See the mysterious connection now? =P Alas, I simply adored the light orange and red adornments on her hair. :love:


COMMENTARY/COMPLAINTS
Shading took unusually long. Something is really #&(@$* up with my coloring setting. <__< It's making me grind my teeth. I don't like how the BG turned out either.

Enjoy.

I had my own theory why Peach is the main monarch of the kingdom. It was similar to your idea except that the King didn't really die, persay but went senile early because of his grief. Peach took over from her father to better his health.

That's a good theory, since it actually still allows a "King Toadstool" to exist. :D Makes way to new possible stories. :nod:

I'm not around very often, and for times when I am, I say little. ^^;

I decided on Peach's parents being dead for many reasons. One, it is to compliment (and add variety to) my friend's fan characters.

Daisy's parent rule over Sarasland, which is why she is free to hang around the Mushroom Kingdom, and Mario & Luigi's parents live outside of the Mushroom World. I highly doubt we will ever see ANY of their parents in future games. The only set of parents to appear official we're Mario & Luigi's parents (or their feet at least) in the SNES game, Yoshi's Island.

I also decided for their death to add a bit history to her family. For example, I wanted to explain why Toadsworth was her caretaker. =P

Let me ask you this:
How is Rosalina platinum-blond?
Remember, if you've played Super Mario Galaxy and read Rosalina's Storybook, it reveals her mother's hair was orange-yellow, just like in Melody's design.
So I guess the answer is..

Magic? xD

The hair color of Peach's father is actually yellow-based. I darkened it to give it an aged effect, but it seems like it lost the "blond" hair origin in exchange. =P

If you read my artist's comment you'd find the answer to your question.

I cannot tell you how much I just adore your work! I sound like a freak, but you really put a spin on things we don't know know about the Mario games; especially what the parents look like!

Don't be surprised if like ten of your images are suddenly faved by me! :)
