-The Frying Pan and the Bomb were supposed to be a reference to Super Mario RPG. Of course "Psych Bomb" was just a normal bomb, the Bob-omb just looks more iconic (not to mention it's a bit consistent with the time Daisy had the Mask...running gag?)
-Originally was going to have Peach's face a bit more "warped" but I liked the first sketch. Plus the artist felt it wouldn't be very "Peach"-y. The only thing that changed was the color of her lipstick (originally green).
-The picture's a bit of a tribute to whose been drawing a series of pictures of Peach wearing the Mask. I've been meaning to commission Peach getting it at one point, but I wanted something reflective on the official art. So here we are.
Thank you for taking on the request. I do have a few more ideas, one for another Peach picture, one for another Mask picture and something unrelated to both. We'll cross that bridge when we get to it though
