About the set

JTK Sora is a set based off the colors of the sky, featuring a blue reminiscent of the sky for the alphas,
paired with an alternate sunset color for those who prefer the sunset instead.

The set is complimented with white modifiers being similar to the clouds we often see along with the sky,
along with a bronze-gold color representing the sun.

More context behind the set

MoreMy inspiration for this set came from staying mostly at home the past year because of COVID and
starting to miss the stuff I was able to do before outside under the sky.

Explanation behind the name:
The the name came from a Japanese friend of mine, Homiezoned who when I asked for help with naming it, named it Sora
because it meant "sky" in Japanese. I found it interesting because in Kanji, the same "sky" (空) character can also
mean "air or empty" in Chinese Hanzi and when combined with the character (天) in Chinese, it also means sky (天空).
