Peach Tied to Train Tracks by JC-DiD Peach Tied to Train Tracks by JC-DiD
Newest Peach sketch. Pencil & paper.

Oh no! Peach finds herself tied up on the train tracks, and a mushroom kingdom train is headed right at her!!! It's not going to stop, and she can't get free...is all hope lost???

Here are my comments on this one:

First of all, this is a request for ddrplayax ([link]) It was suggested to me to do something old fashioned, perhaps a train track peril, and why not? Certainly one of the most classic ways to put your favorite DiD in jeopardy. All that is missing is the evil villain with the top hat and cape, but if you look REAL closely, you can at least see Bowser driving the train. AND it is a mushroom kingdom train, which insinuates he commandeered it. Evilness at its best!

Ok, I had a pretty good model for the train, and I always knew I wanted Peach in the foreground, but what really had me going for a while was that it didn't look right with the tracks equidistant...once I changed the perspective on one side, it looked better...huh I don't get it but ok. I experimented a bit with rope work this time, borrowing from Daikinbakuju ([link]) on Peach's upper body, and kind of just wrapping her up otherwise; it doesn't really look like she is tied TO the tracks, but oh well.

I had some issues drawing Peach's dress with ropework over it, but I did the best I could. Also forgive the cheesy background, but it is supposed to be grass and trees, and I really did need to fill it in lest the Train be a'comin' out of nowhere.

Give me your thoughts, everybody!

Why am I seeing so many of these on dA?

Do people get aroused from the thought of some woman getting killed and her body getting splattered all over the place?

Why?

It's not that at all...I'm sure there IS somebody out there that enjoy that part of damsels in distress, but I sure don't, and I don't invite such to my work anyway. If you notice in my works I never *EVER* show any bloodshed, torture, or results from any peril or violence.

It's the tension and excitement of the distress i.e. the impending doom, the classic cliffhangers, and the helplessness/struggling of the female form that is attractive in this genre to a select audience.

If you don't understand that, that's ok. This is a very specific field and obviously not for everyone.

oh wow it's so wickedly cliche, but it's so well done! Excellent and very clean work. I really like the amount of detail you put into the piece. Great job getting that perspective down. Now looking at it much deeper, the only problem i have is her shoes, for next time i would look into how pumps look like in wierd angles

Classics are great and all but at the end Peach gets rescued by Mario you know if MArio and Sonic teamed up Peach won't be kidnapped ever again but if Metal sonic is in the way won't that be impressive not to mention having these ideas from my big bro. Sephiroth is this since Peach getting kidnapped and rescued again and again Browser steamed about not defeating Mario but someone understands his pain and told him that he too fail at defeat so the two Browser and Metal Sonic talked things through and made a big impact an impact that make sure Mario did save one but lost a member of his gang.

Heh simply awesome! One of your best! :D

The train track is always a good choice, simply great, and Peach's position is lovely! Even if it doesn't look like she's tied to the trails, it's still enjoyable. Also the background is nice as well! I like how you did the train and the trails, and the "cheezy" background works fine, it was enough to let us now where the peril is taking place! :)

The only thing I would advise is to draw some lines on the ropes. I've checked the full version of the pic and I realized you tried to do some texture in the ropes, so I think doing lines on the ropes works better, just like in my recent pics.

Anyway, nice job! This pic is very lovely! Keep it up! ^^

Thanks, Ryuji-kun!

I seem what you mean on the ropes...you make very clear lines. For some reason I avoid doing that. What I currently do is just make my drawing hand go "jittery" all over the rope areas, and what I get is a combination of dots and sometimes jagged lines. I will try it your way in my next (already in progress) sketch.
