Goggles by SaffuranLoL Goggles by SaffuranLoL
Thought this one up when I was spacing in the middle of the day, couldn't sleep so I figured I'd do a small ID card for this new character.

Shaw "Goggles" the Falcon

I wanted to go for a bit of that old world, steam-punkish feel with this one, especially in Goggle's Goggles, they are a standard strap on pair that he customized with small spring locked aviator mirrored shades over the top to keep intense sun rays out, and just because the look is appealing to him.

His birth name is Shaw but adopted his nickname, Goggles, after people often began resorting to calling him that.

He refers to himself as a sky pirate, not that he does anything related to piracy.. he tends to typically transport sensitive (sometimes illegal) cargo on his dirigible boat, the Maverick. Some think it's odd that someone who could already fly would resort to being a pilot for a sea ship with a giant balloon over it, but being incognito was never his thing and while his own abilities of flight are good for him, he can't carry passengers and cargo on his back.. so he and some old technician buddies put the little marvel together.. thus, the Sea to Air transport ship came to be.

His primary means of self defense are a set of large padlock keys that double as guns, each able to fire one gunpowder shot before reloading (yes, inspired by Pawn Stars before anyone brings that up) and an ancient Musketoon (equivalent to the William III Brown Bess) that was passed down to him as a family heirloom. If It comes down to it I suppose he could kick some butt otherwise if he had to. =P

When you have no convenient way to cross the ocean and you need to get yourself and some possible serious cargo on the move, and most importantly, semi-discreetly-ishh, Goggles and The Maverick are the team you want to ride with this fine afternoon.

Yeah, his final design will probably have a couple more tweaks but glad that the rough start has been well received.

There are some here and there if you dig around.. I think people avoid em because Beaks can be troublesome. Happy you like the lil rough idea for him. ^^

Very nice design, and I like the added creativeness to his goggles. Plan on making a full body drawing?

Thanks, and yeah, but when I do his overall design will probably be slightly tweaked, this was all testing the water for him and for use as a launch pad for the design. May get a little more Aviator like and use a pilot cap like [link] mostly because getting the secondary colored facial feathers right will be tricky, this'd resolve the problem of how they would look behind the goggles.
