Oldie But Goodie: Oracle by NicGiraffe Oldie But Goodie: Oracle by NicGiraffe
Oracle the golden eagle, posing with her signature weapon, the halberd. She was saved by the Rovers in Cambodia and winds up joining their cause. She has psychic powers: precognition, telepathy, and telekinesis.

Oracle's feathers are supposed to be white with some gold markings, though since her creator wasn’t specific about exactly how they looked, I might try whipping something up myself. Her uniform is based off the costumes worn by Cambodian Aspara dancers. It's not as elaborate though, and I gave her pants instead of a dress (as a dress just wouldn‘t be practical for crime-fighting). The wings took *ages* to draw, and even now they still look a little off. I might redo them and re-upload this, but otherwise, this isn't bad for my first (anthro) eagle.

Ah, beautiful. I like her jewelery. I do see what you & everyone else mean with pants instead of a dress. Especially if you give her one of those very short skirts like some anime women have (Sailor Moon for one) and Supergirl. Though with Supergirl, her original design was from the late 50's so back then, people gave both real & fictional woman barely any respect.

Ta. :) I tried not to overdo with the jewelery. The Aspara costumes are way more elaborate then Oracle's outfit here.

//people gave both real & fictional woman barely any respect.//

I don't think many women in comics get that much respect even now. But I agree, I'm sure it was worse back then.

Ah, gotcha.

Oh yeah, you're probably right. Though now, they're better respected than in the golden age, for so I figured from the old age cartoons (MGM, Looney Tunes and some others), everything was either sexist or racist up until the 70's.

Great job on this and very good point concerning skirts. Unfortunately, the super-heroines can't control their artists' desires and more than half the comic book artists seem to be at least partial closet perverts. Why else would there be so many impractical super-heroine costumes and more beautiful women in comics than can be found in any four James Bond movies combined?

I guess a skirt wouldn't be a good idea for a flyer.

*nods* I don't know how Supergirl does it in the comics; flying around and fighting in a skirt just seems awkward, IMO.

That's what I was referring to as well, actually. Female heroes should fighting crime, not giving people peekshows. XD

Oh, and I meant "peepshows", not "peekshows". That was a Freudian slip. :-P
