[IC] GMK Lilac - Updated colours in the renders
« on: Sun, 21 March 2021, 13:29:12 »
264925-0

I really like Lilac but the keysets I've seen so far aren't the colour I have been looking for. Think wildflowers or foxgloves and violets: this is a simple take on that colourway.

Please fill out IC form if you are interested in the set! : HERE

If you want to follow the updates of the set and my keyboard projects more closely feel free to join the discord: HERE

Basekit

264928-1

Spacebars +basic 40% extension

264930-2

Thanks to Marco for the renders. Here are some renders of the keyset featured on keyboards:

Praxis

264932-3

Ex Arkhe

264935-4

264937-5

F1.69

264939-6

264941-7


If you have any thoughts or suggestions please let me know  :cool:



Thanks also to my partner in crime.

264917-8

I have adjusted the renders to be appear pink and more accurate to the colour reference 251c. You can see the initial version of the renders below.

Q: What about Iconographic?
A: I am reworking the set to be ran at a later date - it is a work in progress. In the meantime my focus has shifted to more creative pursuits: the imminent Ex Arkhe GB and I am ordering prototypes for upcoming projects on both a 60% and an F-12 TKL keyboard.

Initial renders:
264895-9
264897-10
264899-11
264901-12
264903-13
264905-14
264907-15
264909-16

I was like eh but then you rendered on the most beautiful of the keyboards on the most accurate setup I would go for if it was real.

TLDR Noise and simple :thumb:

EDIT: Can I have r3 \| so that I can use dumb ISO with full left shift and it actually makes sense ?

Very pretty but this really isn't lilac at all, wouldn't a name closer to your inspirations (for example, Foxglove) fit better here? Expected a soothing purple when I clicked in and was surprised to see a hot bubblegum pink instead.

Not really a fan of the spacebar + 3 key 40s kit. I'd consider moving the 3 key into base and adding the split bars in base into spacebar kit. The whole purpose of 3 key is to make it so you don't need to buy a separate kit to get some 40s ability. Additionally, the spacebars offered here aren't really common. You are splitting up your audience for this kit into 3 categories: one being someone who REALLY wants 3 key 40s, someone who REALLY wants 6u, or someone who REALLY wants 2x 3u with 1u. 2x 3u and 6u aren't often used with 40s boards. DM me if you need help with kiting here.

Would be curious about the Pantone or RAL shade this is supposed to be (unless you mention it in your IC already and I just can't find it) considering it looks like a bright pink and not really lilac at all, at least on my screen.

Thank you everyone!

I am open to changing the content of the add on kit if that is what people want - whether that is adding xt or something else.

I have taken a picture of the alpha colour reference pantone 251c. The legends are WS2. I'm not sure how colour accurate the photograph is:

Lots of lilacs grow near me, I'm not sure these colors really represent them.

If you're going for that crayola "lilac" look then maybe something like "Bright Lilac" then?

Side note; 2x3u is gaining popularity in 40s. See MB44, m3n3van, packrat, and others.

Otherwise, you are 100% correct with your statement and I support it.

Marco has adjusted the renders to be closer to the colour reference - and hopefully they appear more lilac. I have updated the original post

I do agree that the lilac is kinda on the pinker side. It would be really nice if it was a bit softer in tone.

I like the colour, but like others have pointed out, it feels more pink than lilac. Maybe consider white accents?
