[WIP] ePBT Odin

(1/8) > >>

atl22033:
So I've been working on this set for a while and I wanted to get some feedback on it, So the set is called Gmk ePBT Odin and I'm basing it off of Valhalla and Odin in a way. My idea was having a set that has a contrast of both light and dark. The dark representing the death of many soldiers but the light being the idea of them meeting in Valhalla in the afterlife ready to aid in Ragnarok. So far I have an Idea of colors for the set I'm working on ideas for novelties right now I still have to color match but I'd appreciate it if you could give me some feedback ;D Also please note that these will be PBT Dye-sub keycaps

Here are all the kit renders as of now: https://imgur.com/a/REQhAEK

Pain amazon cancelled my pantone book color matching is gunna be even more time than I expected

Thank you Mike from Mechs&Co So much, we got a pantone book so once it comes in we are color matching :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

June 12th 2021:

Older Updates

Update May/24/2021 7:40
So I ended up working on it a bit more and getting some feedback on it and heres what I have so far,
So what I changed was I done away with the grey accents with green and made them a blue on white because I felt that the green didnt really fit in that well but I will keep them in mind just in case some people want them cause I know some people really liked the green accents
I think I could probably name this Alt kit Ragnarok

Update May 26 2021
So I worked with a friend and worked on some novelty designs and I will get to rendering them on some keycaps today
oh yeah why not make a to do list rn:
Render Noveltys
Adjust Kitting
Make final Renders
Post IC

Another update from May 26th 2021
I made some board render
Sp-111 by BlindAssassin111
Cypher by Cable Car Designs
Saka68 by CMM Studio
last update I think for may 26th 2021 I think lol
I'm sure I'm going to go with gmk as the manu due to how complicated the novelty process will be, and also I want to have this set be maybe a little bit cheaper and be able to support many boards.

Update May 27th 2021
Made updates to kitting will label them later today but I have two renders of the updated kitting one with normal alphas and one with alt alphas
Also yes I do plan on making the Numpad in a separate kit
In all honesty I really would like to thank All of the Keycap Designer Discord for helping me get mostly complete with my kitting and helping with feedback and support

Another update May 27th 2021
A quick sneak peak at some novelty designs Made my amazing and talented artist who has helped me so much during this all

Update May27th 2021
So I've made the numpad to a separate kit entirely so this will now be the base kit, and I also made a basic render for Ragnarok alt alpha

Update May 27th 2021
So I updated the Numpad set to include the alt alphas as well

May 27th 2021:
Made more board render:
The paragon by Artemis Design

Update May 29th 2021
Made a basic novelty render

Update May 30th
Made a few updates to some kits:
Numpad kit being split up, one kit with a basic numpad kit with base alphas, and another kit with Alt Ragnarok alphas
for the numpad kit as well I added, end, page down, plus, and minus, and an equals sign

Some other things that im working on right now:
I'm working with my artist right now to decide on some more novelty designs that will be able to fit on shifts and enters, and planning on making a deskmat sometime in the future.
Also I wanted to put this here, these keycaps are going to be dye sub Pbt

Update May 30th
made a really basic NorDeUK set and basic 40s, 40s kit isnt dont still working on it

June 23rd 2021
One last novelty design needs some tweaking but is close to done:



July 8th 2021:
alright so It's been a while but I've gotten back into things are i've started to go hard into designing, right now im trying to workout novelties and also trying to make sure that I can do nordic sublegends because I dont know the limitations of dye-sub, but I know a lot of people want them so im gunna try my best and see if I can put them in. what im also trying to do is color match and make sure colors look good. im gunna try and render all the kits out and hopefully the renders turn out better. But I will now be working harder and more on this set. Oh and I do plan on going into IC soon but not till I get renders done, I would like to know tho if you guys think I should go into IC before color matching or go in after

I really like how the set is evolving - the alt base you posted looks really tempting too.
