Title: [IC] GMK SOTD
Post by: thisispoggers on Tue, 22 June 2021, 15:38:55
GMK SOTD
(Ship of the Damned)

[attachurl=1]


[attachurl=2]
Hello everyone, I hope that you are doing well.
I am very excited to finally publish this set I have been working on for a little bit now. And even though there is still a decent amount of work to do I wanted to publish this on the say that season three of SOT drops. Introducing GMK SOTD or Ship of the damned. It is based off of the ferry of the damned from the game Sea of Thieves. For those who donít know what this game is, it is a swashbuckling online pirate game where you can do most anything from running trade routes, fighting long-dead captions of ships who have come back as skeletons, or hunting other players for gold and glory. When you enviably die you are sent to the ferry of the damned (that is where this set gets its name and inspiration.) This set is still a work in progress but I want to know what you think of it. All of the renders artwork and most everything else up until this point have been done by me hence the kinda jank appearance. This will be fixed later with new/updated models.

(More rendors coming soon.)

To do list
Finalize the renders for the kits
Set up discord
Finalize artwork
Create novelties
Make more renders
Work with artisan keycap makers
Work on the design for custom desk mats
Get vendors
Announce GB dates

I want to know what you think of it.

I think you have actually nuked the potential for this set to ever be reality with just how complete of a "what not to do" case study for Interest Checks this post is. You have no kitting, no real renders, no details, no art, no novelties, no embedded pictures, no formatting, none of the things that are actually needed to gauge interest. You don't have a potential product, you have an idea, and that hasn't even been completed yet.

Adding to my watch list for the memeability.

If you take a look at other peoples ICís they will have beautiful renders that visualize the products as best as possible for people to be interested in the product. Youíll have to do a bit more research on how to properly make an IC or you will get replies like above. Thereís a first for everyone so donít get too beaten up about it!

Quick! Someone get the pasta!
I appreciate the hustle and desire to capitalize on zeitgeist while you can.

That being said, early ICs are simply not the way to go about publishing a set concept. A bad early IC is way worse than a late, fleshed out IC. ICs are all about impressions and the impression this IC leaves upon me is very poor. You're looking for positive reception as confirmation for renders? You're not going to find it with this low quality of an IC.

It's clear that you're fairly new to the community. You made a GH account to post this thread. This is a 104 key base kit. That's something you majorly flesh out before you even have colors in a lot of cases. Your colors are web colors, meaning you're oblivious to the IC process and GMK production as a whole, things you can easily find out more about by visitng the trove of old GB and IC threads, or even uniqey's website. This comes off as a cash grab from an inexperienced community member, which, to be honest, I'm not ragging on, but I'm definitely not about it. Take some time in the hobby to be part of the community. Be a little more active. Find out what works, what's good, why it works, why it's good, and talk with more types of folks to engage in that exchange. That's what it's really about. While the "i see guy make thing, i can make thing too!" mentality certainly has driven a lot of cool stuff, this is not one of those cases.

Renders went from being a nice to have in ICs to nearly a need to have. It shows you have some level of personal commitment to the set that you would even pay for mockups our of your own pocket before anything is official. To not have renders and to just show off a set of KLEs, is definitely not a good look, and the KLEs do a very poor job of showing the colors that you want to show, or maybe they do a really good job, but to me they look like blanks. I'm not trying to bog you down or take shots at an easy target, rarely anything ever deserves that. If you're truly invested in making this set happen beyond a text-post and a barely visible KLE render, you need to make a very good impression, so that vendors who see your IC will want to work with ya.

Many people will not buy into the concept if the IC is not good from the get-go. You can sell any concept to anyone as long as the beginning impressions are good enough.

If you're intent on making this happen (and this would have to be very soon, before more eyes can see this and get their first impressions, which, in their current state would result in the set being written off extremely quickly) then you can:

1. Flesh out those layouts.
2. Get some renders.
3. Pick colors that aren't web colors, it's 2020. We have resources to help design GMK sets. GMK has resources to help design GMK sets. Use google, guy.
4. Goals, MOQs, prior contact to GMK show vendors that you're willing to do work beyond "hur dur look at color now shoulder it all for me," which, even if a vendor wouldn't take you up on, they would like to see.
5. Give more of a ****. Going into a project half-assed (you could be fully on board, but this post does certainly not show that) only makes me believe in the project less. If you don't believe in your project enough to give a detailed, commited sales pitch, why should any vendor, or even why should the community believe in it? Dipping your toes into the pool is simply not an option when everyone else who's making successful sets is hopping in headfirst.


cmon guy.
