Hello again, this is Oay :) :) :) I'm glad to bring my brand new keycap design with a Pelican theme this time.

Pelicans (genus Pelecanus) are a genus of large water birds that make up the family Pelecanidae.They are characterized by a long beak and a large throat pouch used for
catching prey and draining water from the scooped-up contents before swallowing. (Source from Wikipedia )

The colorway inspiration was captured from the Pelican standing on the lake at sunset.
I pick yellow to represent its significant beak, black and beige for the feather, and pink for unnoticeable details.
The Pelican looks so good under the sunset, providing a remain aloof-from-the-world vibe without opening its beak.

Let us admire the birds. :D

I have changed the novelties design back and force for a few times to provide more pelican details in this final version.

During the design phase, I suddenly snapped an idea based on how similar the alpha area looks to a Pelican throat pouch.
So I decided to switch the R1 number roll to full of yellow with an eye and  pelican webs to make your keyboard seems like a Pelican staring at you lol

PBTfans will produce this set, and I will pick the final material from either PBT or ABS,
depending on which one will display the colorway better.
At last, a special thanks to KBDfans Holmes, who provided this funny meme idea.
I hope you are all going to enjoy it!

OtherThe keycap pictures above are rendered.
Due to the difference in different monitors, the color may be slightly different from the final product.
 I have tried my best to stay close to the color chart when rendering.

Thanks for seeing the end, I will update here if there is any progress in the follow-up.
If you have any feedback or advice, please fill in the IC form to tell me.

It's really beautiful. I will try to choose my own model!
