[IC] GMK Orange Boi - collaborations! (1/20/22)

(1/17) > >>

Update 1/20/22: Collabs announced!

At this time we are still waiting on quotes from GMK. Once we receive quotes, we'll set our group buy date.

GMK Orange Boi is co-designed by me and Typo.mk. This set is inspired by my orange cat Richard as well as orange cats everywhere (including the girl ones, despite the name of this set). One of the goals of this set is to raise money for cats in need! If GMK Orange Boi makes it through interest check and group buy, a portion of profits will be donated to The Odd Cat Sanctuary, a feline rescue organization that was started to help kittens and cats (as well as an occasional dog) with "challenges"  or that have been neglected. Check out their website to learn more and to admire all of the adorable kitties that they’ve rescued!

To follow progress on GMK Orange Boi, follow us on Instagram (Ty, me), and feel free to join my Discord server.

KITS

Old kit renders from the previous iteration of this IC can be viewed here.

**Note that novelty designs will use UV printing for the second color. For all novelty caps, the cream color will be doubleshot and the pastel pink color will be UV printed.

BOARD RENDERS

Keep in mind that slight color differences in board renders can be caused by differences in lighting - the lighting in which we are looking at the IRL color references, as well as the lighting used in the render environments.
