Hi, good colorway, the kitting of your base kit needs some improvements tho imo. You have a mod color "~`" key but no mod color "\|" key so please add this. Also, the iso enter needs a R3 1u "\|" key so please consider adding this key or just change that R4 1u "\|" key to R3 and it's good.
The novelty kit may need a few pairs of identical R4 1.25u key to match Ctrl or Alt key which are popularly used in many modern layouts. Also, iso enter novelty would be appealing to many european buyers.

Like the colours! What colour are the alpha legends, IMO they seem out of place with rest of the colors.
The mod colour seems dark enough to use for the legends on the alphas, what made you go with the colour you did?

I really like the pink and red, not a big fan of the purple. Consider changing it to something that matches the set a bit better, or, just remove accents. Otherwise, really nice. GLWIC  :thumb:

I wonder how fast he will lost interest, lock the thread and request mods’ deletion for this one. The meliodas one was fun, huh? I have 0 respect for someone who has no respect for his own work. This may come across a tad bit toxic but I think we have to put a stop to these people who come back with a half-built ic every few days.

I do agree that people do have a hard on for eastern culture whether it be in entertainment or just certain aspects. Not to mention this is basically like Darling with purple and no sublegends. Honestly this is something that should be taken back to the drawing board.

I could be wrong but I don't believe the Bird novelty will be possible looking at how the thin the line for the back of the bird is and the same for some parts of the enter key novelty. Additionally like others have already stated, having the colors listed is pretty important considering for all we know these could be physically nonexsistant colors. Lastly im not to sure how the purple color has anything to do with a cherry blossom; I've never seen one in person so I could be completly wrong but I just don't see how its related.

Nice change. About the novelty, I suggest some good and versatile templates like those of GMK Lavender and GMK Hanok. These novelty kits cover a lot of bases imo. I forgot to mention about that big control key next to capslock in your base, I don't think it should be there and I don't know about any layouts that use a big control key at that row. I assume it's mislabeled, it should be an off-centered capslock, right? Furthermore, there's a current trend about adding 3 basic 40s keys in base kit: a R2 1.75u backspace key, a R3 1.25u tab key and 1 R3 1.5u enter key to cover the majority of 40s layouts since you don't have any dedicated 40s kits.
The CR used in alpha legends can be replaced by the mod colors to reduce a 4th color in your base, this can reduced slightly the final price. About the accent, that haus render is very good, I don't know if the color can turn out like that in real life or not (I like dark tones so this is entireley subjective). Perhaps more renders with that kind of shade.
Last but not least, those 2 seperated F and J should be scooped imo. Also, F13 in base kit please  ;D

I am going to rework the novelties! I chose purple because there is a type of cherry blossom that has a purple color.

I think the base kit render is not final, there are some alpha keys with the dark red legends and the rest in CR and F13 is really needed in the base kit. You made a good structure for the novelty kit. However, can you replace that R3 novelty cherry 1u key with a different one? Reason behind this is to cover the left column keys (the 1u keys from R1 to R4, mainly used in popular 65/75s layout for keys: end, pgdn, pgup, home, etc.) People who buy the novelty kit will use these 1u keys for their column. This change also makes the novelty kit more appealing to buyers.

My bad for not noticing the second numpad enter key (me not a numpad user...), I believe the second numpad enter should be in accent color. Still hope you can consider a different design with that R3 1u novelty, I know novelty design is not cheap.

Personally not a fan of the alpha legends being so dark, would rather see the mod colours used for them as black feels way too harsh against that soft pink. Otherwise love the colours chosen for this!

Pls consider red (RAL4004) legends instead of black (GMK CR). Or if that is too light, a darker red (eg RO1).

And pls consider adding katakana or hiragana sublegends, preferably in the base kit, or at least as a child kit. If u can get permission to use GMK inukuma’s custom hiragana sublegends that would be sweet. Thanks.

Cute set.

I will also go with some voices:

-I don't think black is the best choice for the Alpha Legends.
-Considering the theme, I would have liked to see Hiragana sublegends (ideally those new ones from Inukuma as somebody mentioned) or at least Hiragana Mono in a child kit.
-I know it's already on your list, but the novelties could use some work.

And I think NOVELTIES set should be modified.For example,I want 4 different patterns for R1~R4 1u keycaps.So I can match my 65% keyboard very well.To be honset,the choice of colour is good.....Just NOVELTIES too simple and a lit ditto. ;D

I suggest some changes with the R4 novelties (I know novelty design is hard so this is just my 2 cents):
_ The key in "branch with 5 leaves" is to keep since it's not repeated in other rows: both in 1.5u but with different color. I believe your approach is to provide some R4 mod keys in accent color which is new and supprisingly good when put in a board. However you'll need to have a pair of these keys in mod color first, then a second pair with same design in accent color. Please consider doing this in with a 1.25u as well.
_ The rest of R4 novelties should be replaced with 3 different designs: A 1u novelty key to cover either End or PgDn + a pair of 1.25u in mod color for 2 Control/Alt keys + another pair of 1.25u novelties in accent color for system keys.
_ ISO enter novelties in the theme of sakura would be great since we don't have many of these.
I really hope that you'll consider these changes since I always buy novelty kit whenever I join a keycap GB. A good novelty kit will surely boost your sale.

The dark alpha legends look much darker in the keyboard renders compared to the base kit render picture. Which of the two is the most accurate?

I suggest some changes with the R4 novelties (I know novelty design is hard so this is just my 2 cents):
_ The key in "branch with 5 leaves" is to keep since it's not repeated in other rows: both in 1.5u but with different color. I believe your approach is to provide some R4 mod keys in accent color which is new and supprisingly good when put in a board. However you'll need to have a pair of these keys in mod color first, then a second pair with same design in accent color. Please consider doing this in with a 1.25u as well.
_ The rest of R4 novelties should be replaced with 3 different designs: A 1u novelty key to cover either End or PgDn + a pair of 1.25u in mod color for 2 Control/Alt keys + another pair of 1.25u novelties in accent color for system keys.
_ ISO enter novelties in the theme of sakura would be great since we don't have many of these.
I really hope that you'll consider these changes since I always buy novelty kit whenever I join a keycap GB. A good novelty kit will surely boost your sale.
Thank you for suggestions :)

I wonder how fast he will lost interest, lock the thread and request mods’ deletion for this one. The meliodas one was fun, huh? I have 0 respect for someone who has no respect for his own work. This may come across a tad bit toxic but I think we have to put a stop to these people who come back with a half-built ic every few days.

didn't know this was same guy, if it is, then it's way too rushed.

Cute set.

I will also go with some voices:

-I don't think black is the best choice for the Alpha Legends.
-Considering the theme, I would have liked to see Hiragana sublegends (ideally those new ones from Inukuma as somebody mentioned) or at least Hiragana Mono in a child kit.
-I know it's already on your list, but the novelties could use some work.
Thank you! I changed the legend colour and added Hiragana sublegend. I will rework the novelties soon!

Pls consider red (RAL4004) legends instead of black (GMK CR). Or if that is too light, a darker red (eg RO1).

And pls consider adding katakana or hiragana sublegends, preferably in the base kit, or at least as a child kit. If u can get permission to use GMK inukuma’s custom hiragana sublegends that would be sweet. Thanks.
I have already done the changes you said. Hope you like them!

Thanks for taking in my feedback. The updated kit looks better! I was wondering if GMK DY doesn’t match as well, and a darker purple may work better. But will defer to you on that.

I did a new render for the base kit and also changed the alphas color. Look at the render now and if you still have some questions feel free to ask me!

Just saw the new updates, those ISO novelty enters are great. However, I believed I did not express fully and correctly my opinion about colors of R4 novelties. I mean a pair of same novelty should be in the same color, not 2. Because normally we have 2 Control/Alt/Super keys in 1.25u in TKL/Full size and fewer in 65/75s. 2 keys in a pair should have the same color, like the 2 R4 keys with the bird should all be in either mod or accent color. I'm sorry if I caused you any misunderstandings.
I know it would be expensive and time-consuming for designer to have different novelty for each mod key but if you can get different designs for those R4 keys, it'll be way better. You'll only need 2-3 more new novelties for Control/Alt or Super.
