[IC] GMK Orange Boi - added ISO novelty, new board renders (10/29)
« on: Thu, 30 September 2021, 19:52:58 »


Update 10/29/21: Added ISO novelty enter to novelty kit, changed base kit ISO enter to orange, added a few new board renders.

GMK Orange Boi is co-designed by me and Typo.mk. This set is inspired by my orange cat Richard as well as orange cats everywhere (including the girl ones, despite the name of this set). One of the goals of this set is to raise money for cats in need! If GMK Orange Boi makes it through interest check and group buy, a portion of profits will be donated to The Odd Cat Sanctuary, a feline rescue organization that was started to help kittens and cats (as well as an occasional dog) with "challenges"  or that have been neglected. Check out their website to learn more and to admire all of the adorable kitties that theyíve rescued!

To follow progress on GMK Orange Boi, follow us on Instagram (Ty, me), and feel free to join my Discord server
.

INTEREST CHECK FORM

KITS







Full imgur gallery of kit renders

Old kit renders from the previous iteration of this IC can be viewed here.

**Note that novelty designs will use UV printing for the second color. For all novelty caps, the cream color will be doubleshot and the pastel pink color will be UV printed.

BOARD RENDERS

Keep in mind that slight color differences in board renders can be caused by differences in lighting - the lighting in which we are looking at the IRL color references, as well as the lighting used in the render environments.

KHDD by perryhuynh (renders by pwade, featuring photos of my cat Richard LOOK AT HOW CUTE HE IS!!!)






Cake60 by Hayt (renders by pwade)






Nyaong75 by jmSur, renders by Adi






cypher by Cable Car Designs




Maja by Vulcan x KBDFans


KARA by RAMA in MOMO and MUSK






Paragon by Artemis Design Studios




V4N4G0N by TheVan Keyboards

Hello, because of the 1.25 tab this board already has physical coverage for neko, youíll just have to use caps lock or 1.75 (icon) control as enter

We donít plan on adding more 40ís coverage than we already have in order to keep this base kit affordable

 I understand not willing to add to keep prices lower
Would match great the Neko, but will still consider buying the set

Colorway isn't necessarily for me, but I wanted to comment and say that I REALLY appreciate the "4 key support" for 40's. 

I know it sounds stupid, but having that R2 Esc key for legend/row compat is really appreciated for me.

Obligatory update bump - slight adjustments have been made to colors and novelty designs (to address contrast issues), and additional details on colors have been added to the IC. Up next: we'll be adding an ISO novelty design soon!

Thanks everyone for all of the feedback so far.
