[IC] GMK Tuzi
« on: Thu, 01 October 2020, 10:00:04 »

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival everyone!

I'm happy to announce a set I've been working on for a while!
I designed this set for one of the biggest inspiration of my life, my Chinese mother. The rabbit (兔子) represents the Chinese zodiac sign which she and I were both born under, it is one of the signs commonly associated with the Mid-Autumn Festival. With that in mind I decided to design the set around this theme using my mother's favorite color range of blue-violets. And so without further ado I present to you...

About the base kit ISO support, I propose that you make it like GMK Deep Navy did, it fits more layouts and makes more sense.

One comment if I may. The reason that rabbit is associated with mid-autumn festival is because of an ancient Chinese mythical story about a goddess who flew to and lived on the moon. She has a pet rabbit who lives with her on the moon. The rabbit is referred to as "Yutu" or jade rabbit. So if this is to associate with mid autumn festival, may I suggest naming this set Yutu instead of just Tuzi?
