[IC] Retro Sci-Fi KeyCap Set

(1/6) > >>

I found a free icon set of mostly ray guns here:

I like the idea of maybe twelve ray-guns on the Function row. What do you guys think? Here's a quick mockup:

Any other ideas for retro sci-fi? I was thinking of using Gort from 'The Day The Earth Stood Still' as a silhouette? Robbie the Robot head? We could do a silhouette of Saturn.

Boilermaker from would be willing to run this as a groupbuy if there was enough interest. Well, what do you guys think?

What else would we need for a Retro Sci-fi set?

- rocketship
- atom
- pinup silhouette
- bug-eyed alien
- flying saucer
- bubble space helmet

Any more ideas?

I picture it as solid black for easy dyesubbing, nothing too detailed.

I'm thinking in terms of Buck Rogers, Venture Brothers, Forbidden Planet, etc.

Could be cool! Would be on a green base?

Green to me is the color of alien weirdness, radiation, etc. so sure. But I'm open to other color ideas. Why, what color would you prefer? For now I'm just scanning anything retro sci-fi for inspiration. I'm thinking the Jetsons, Flash Gordon sort of retro. The icons would have to be pretty simple.

Green is cool! Might be neat to match the toxic green in that group buy if possible too?
