[IC] GMK Jay
« on: Sun, 24 January 2021, 15:54:35 »


IC Form

Quick March update: I'm working on some new kitting and novelty designs. IC should be fully up and running sometime in april or may.

GMK Jay

A set inspired by jays, my favorite birds

Inspiration

The colorway inspired by the blue feathers commonly seen on jays and muted and toned down to fit my own personal taste. With novelties inspired by the birds themselves and the trees they nest in, conifers, pine bearing trees.

Colors



Kits/Renders
Please consider that renders do not always accurately show what the set will look like. Different people’s monitors are different, hex codes aren’t always right, and lighting is a huge factor in colors. The base kit will have the most accurate colors, but still not perfect.

The Nest - Base Kit

Supports terminal ISO, 1800, Tsangan, HHKB, 96%, with Alice compatibility (Using shifts)



Hatchlings Kit - Novelties

Currently under construction

Twigs Kit - Spacebars

Small bars are 2.75u, 2.25u, 2u, and 1.25u




Deskmat

TBD

Renders

Done by yours truly

Rama M60 by RAMA Works







Nemui by Bachoo







F2-84 by Geon Works









Vendors

US - TBD
CA - TBD
EU - TBD
CN - TBD
SEA - TBD
OCE - TBD
Other Regions - TBD




Collabs and Artisans

TBD

Love the way this kit looks, but not sold on forcing accent colours on split space.

I really love the muted blue and novelties. I personally would only use the base colour, so I really appreciate you planning to change the spacebar kit to include base colour split spacebar options!

Can we please stop this trend of using R3 Icon Control on sets that otherwise feature OG Icons 😕? Otherwise a great keyset, will probably pick it up.

Thanks for the support! I was thinking it, but more people seem to like the seamless icon mods followed by the text bottom, I will consider it though.

I personally like the R3 Icon control on icon only mods, feels more integrated between tab and shift icon mods

I'd agree with you if the set used left-centered icon mods (as on 8008 or 9009 R3), but since this set uses OG placement for the other mods, having a single left-centered icon feels out of place

love the base colour, but the novelties feel a bit too big and a bit too simple. would also suggest making the accents a bit darker. nice kit, will probably cop

Don't care what you call it.  The colour is superb.  SOLD.  Count me in and make sure you get some UK ISO into that kit.

Finally a good blue set without sublegends. Agree that the novelties are probably too close to the edge.

Gonna chime in like everyone else and say that I think that the accent colour clashes rather than complements the base colour.

Beautiful and classy set. I don't mind accent color, but perhaps it's worth to look into the possibility of some alternative as others have said.
However postponing whole thing after 1 day of IC? Notes about cancelling the set in credits? Am I the only one feeling this is already lost?

So i wasn't even thinking about posting this set at first, but i did, hence the credit.
but something that wasn't in my control arose that I noticed only a day after posting so I'm pausing work for now. But I'll try to keep people updated.

GMK TU1 might be fairly close to RAL 5009, though it might be more saturated. Would let you go down to 1 custom color.

Also WS1 is a lot brighter than depicted in the renders.
