[IC] GMK Maroon | Collabs announced!
« on: Sat, 17 April 2021, 17:10:57 »
-- GMK MAROON--
Please check out the IC form:



I was inspired by deep red and purple, and I wanted to make a clean, simple mono set that had a splash of color, and that's why I chose to make this set!



Colors


Color Comparison


Kits

Base Kit


Spacebars


Old Kits

More

Base Kit


Spacebars



Renders
Colors may not be fully accurate, and are merely to provide an idea of what it may look like. The kitting renders are the most color accurate, while the board renders use different lighting to imitate real life lighting setups

New renders coming soon

I originally had that, but switched to a darker accent. If enough people want it I'll change it!

I may end up changing to white accents as it seems like many people want it.

i would add full alpha + mod gmk VOC as thatís what looks very familiar to me.

also phantom, although the colors of the set in real life resemble this more than the original renders did.

Well done, I second the opinion that white should be the accent color.

 Looking awesome, try to see if you can add arrow accents  :D, white accents would look awesome but I think that it might resemble to bingsu a bit but quite frankly would look pretty lit ngl, GLWIC BROTHA  :thumb:

I have too many monochrome sets, but I am so tempted by this. Btw I think White/Light accents might suit this set better. GLWIC!

Ooo, very nice! I like it :D

*small edit; I do notice a lot of differences between the various renders. Which one would you say is the closest to the color? The ones from Vulcan especially are completely different.

As said above, the base kit renders are the closest to accurate. I did mess around with different lighting scenes to imitate different light sources irl

whew! not only do the white accents look DOPE, removing the third color should drop the cost of the base kit. stroke of brilliance IMO.

Am very curious how the pricing on this turns out. You already know I'm down...
