[IC] GMK Dual Wield
« on: Thu, 14 May 2020, 08:44:35 »
Hello everybody,

today I'm more than happy to present you my keycap set!

It is inspired by Kirito - character from the 2D series SAO.
In a second I will take you through my thought process of choosing colors for this set.

Colors

For the main color I have chosen black, just black. Nothing special, move along.
Specifically speaking - RAL 8022

242528-0


For the accents I wanted to go with gray, similar to the one used for Kirito's robe.

I have modified it a bit to match the set better and finally went with RAL 7037.

242513-2

I was also thinking about RAL 7022, but it turned out to be too dark, in my opinion.

242515-3

For the final color - the one for the legends I needed some contrast and that is when I remembered one of his swords - Dark Repulser.

Same as for the gray color, I modified it a bit and finally came up with - RAL 6027.

242518-5

Concept

242520-6


242522-7


Plans

As far as I feel like there are enough people intrested in GMK Dual Wield, I will make some novelty keycaps and upload more renders.

When it comes to the novelty keycaps I'm planing to make "Link, start!" enter with some fancy font  :cool:
For the shift keys I was thinking about adding 2 different arts of Kirito's swords.
To make it a kit worth buying, I will need to come up with a few more novelties. That is why I'm open for any ideas from you guys! :)

All of the above wrap-up to 3 kits:
1. Base - possibly with Latin legends.
2. Hiragana sublegends kit
3. Last but not least, possible novelty keycaps.

Vendors, Price

This still looks and feels very young. In the current Meta, IC's are sort of a way to present a more polished product and this is still in a rough draft kind of phase. This is a mistake I made as well so I understand where you are coming from in wanting to get your idea out there. Keep working on it though, polish it up, and gauge interest once you have a more cohesive theme and idea around the set.

as for the colors, you made a very good first step in going with RALs. Though I wish you would omit the mention of 7022. If it's not in the set then there is no need to mention it. It's up to you to decide what colors you want to use, not us.

Clean up the thread a little too. Maybe change the bold green headers to one of the colors you are using in your set. The HTML editor for geekhack supports hex codes so you can match it. Also make the renders a little bigger so they are easier to see. Your IC thread is your means of advertising so you want to polish it as well and treat it like it's a part of your product.

Good luck, keep working hard on this and I am sure it will come together beautifully.

Reorganize your thread and get renders done by a professional. Reading through your thread feels like you're presenting RAL colors, not a GMK keyset.

I have the urge to say something, but I think others have me covered on that.

Thank you everyone for leaving your feedback. I genuinely appreciate it. You have opened my eyes on how the ICs actually work.

Expect big update with my whole keyset finished, not just the concept. I can't tell you exact date, because I don't want to rush it anymore.

Also I need to thank the people who have filled up the Google form with some ideas :)

what  objective feedback am I supposed to give if the only thing I see is 1 render that's to see how the colors would look?

1 render and you somehow managed to screw up the numpad. Come back when you are mote invested instead of going for a fast cash pull

I wouldn't have thought that someone would actually comment on such a old post.

I was planning to make a completely reimagined post with some proper renders, but some personal stuff came up. No promises that will continue working on this.

This is a prime example of the deteriorating IC quality.

Edit: did not see the date on this, still a disappointing IC.
