[IC] GMK Darling - GROUPBUY LIVE! | See pg. 4
« on: Tue, 16 April 2019, 21:48:10 »

Groupbuy is live! - Click here for the latest info.

Hello all,

Today I'd like to introduce you to a project that I've been gradually working on for the past year or so:

GMK Darling

Inspired by the character Zero Two from Darling in the Franxx, GMK Darling aims to bring her aesthetics straight to your keyboard
It's taken a long while to get the colors dialed in, but they are quite close to -- if not in -- their final iteration now as far as I can take them with renders.
Hiragana sublegends may not be everyone's cup of tea, but the use of icon mods hopefully prevents the set from becoming overcrowded.



gmkdarling.moe

Updated 01/14/20:
Deskmats and RAMA X DARLING!


Groupbuy January 27th 2020 to Febuary 27th, 2020!
Pricing information is available further down the thread.

Also, there's a new IC form which reflects the new changes!


Colorway

Updated 4/29/19: 7422C is now the alpha color as opposed to 691C, which was too grey.

GMK Darling utilizes three custom colors:

RAL 3020 as the alpha text color; a vivid red reminiscent of Zero Two's horns

Pantone 7422C; a pastel-pale pink which reflects Zero Two's hair color, used for the alpha cap color and the legend color on the mods.

RAL 3003 as the mod cap color; a darker red similar to Zero Two's dress uniform and darker parts of her flight suit

GMK WS1 for the white accents


Color pallete based on the colors' hex values


Hey the sun finally came out! Here's 7422C. Color balance/temperature for this picture is considerably better than the last one.

I do have some concern as to color matching and am unsure how GMK would handle dealing with both RAL and Pantone colors.
However, the RAL light pink (3015) was simply not light enough for this project.



KITS:

Base - "Darling"



Spacebars - "Clacksaur"



Extension Kit - "Parasite"



Novelties - "Partner"



Alphas kit - "Remnants"

Nice! I vote for removing the sublegends on the numpad. It creates a cleaner look especially with icon mods imo.

Set definitely looks lovely.  :thumb:

I have a few suggestions:
  • Same icon for the 1.5u backspace
  • Regular R3 Control key (not stepped)

Either have full text mods or full icon mods. Having half text and half icon is just so jarring on the eyes.

I have tried this in previous renders and it didn't look quite as clean, but depending on feedback that may change.

Definitely interested. A 2.25 R3 novelty for enter would be nice.

Already have an idea for this one! Currently talking with an artist for novelties.

Set definitely looks lovely.  :thumb:

I have a few suggestions:
  • Same icon for the 1.5u backspace
  • Regular R3 Control key (not stepped)

I'll definitely consider icon arrow 1.5u backspace. I think that legend might be an artifact from when I was trying to get KBRenders to get certain arrows to show up, but I do also like the box backspace.
The R3 control will be normal, just a hiccup in the render on that one, I've updated the OP to reflect that.

Another suggestion via the form was pink arrow keys, which is a neat idea.

I'm really liking it.

A few quips though ~
Full icon modifiers except Escape, nav cluster (caveat below), and Num Lock?
- Nav cluster icons is fine with me if the entire set is icons (not a fan of them, but I like consistency).
- If it's a mix of the text Escape and Num Lock -or- we get a text bottom row, staying text Nav is totally okay with me.
And will the set have the following missing furigana: 3, 4, 5, E, Z, and /
Would you consider not having the nav on numpad? Even front printing would be nice if you have to have it on there.

Hey everyone,

There's been a lot of discussion about mod legends so I figured it might be a good idea to share some of that process.


The original plan was text mods, but hopefully this 'old' render helps demonstrate why icon mods were chosen. All text mods feels a bit cramped and complicated.


However, for the sake of consistency icon nav seems to go better with all icon mods. I think this will be the approach going forward, but please let me know what you think!
Unfortunately KLE-renderer and therefore KB-renders fails to show the PgDn legend properly and a couple others, so more detailed renders will have to wait until I can talk to someone to get them done professionally.


Additionally, if there is going to be a mix of icon mods and text nav, this is another option: text bottom row, as some have asked for.

Kits-wise:
So far on the google form, 72% of people said they would prefer a set with a separate kit for ISO or numpad. That's pretty compelling, but there have only been 37 responses to the form itself thus far.
Novelties - going to be adding an R3 enter key novelty in all likelihood, still brainstorming a design for that one.
Spacebars - 6u centered and off-center stems will be covered once I get a chance to edit it.

Also, just wanted to say thank you for all the positive and constructive criticism so far. I was definitely not expecting this level of positive feedback, but it's extremely motivating.

If it makes you feel any less concerned about this, I have multiple color chips on the way from Pantone. 691 C and 7422 C, the latter of which is more saturated. I went for 691C for the IC because it seems a safer option, but I will be comparing them directly once the chips arrive.

Which set did you base your legends off of? That numrow seems plainer than some of the newer hiragana sets.

This set looks beautiful, but any chance for some 40s love? I really just need a 1.75 r2 cap, 1 or 2 1.25u r3 caps and maybe another 1.75u r4 cap to commit to it. Are those common?

Hey everyone, small incremental update here. Bigger updates to the main thread to come soon.

Artwork for novelties is well on the way to completion, the 1.5/1.25u, Enter, and one of the two styles of 1u R1 novelties are done.
I also received the Pantone chips for 7422C and 691C on Friday. Going forward I'll be sticking with 7422C and will update the rest of the IC tomorrow to reflect this. 691C is close but is a bit too grey. Also, I might bring the color of the mods up a shade or two but I'll determine that once I have daylight to work with.

If anyone has suggestions for services which can render the corrected hiragana legends please feel free to suggest them.

Here's an image of the chips side by side under ~5500K lighting. I did what I could to adjust the whitepoint in GIMP, but I'll take some better pictures tomorrow in the light of day. Picture was taken with a Galaxy Note 8. The 691C chip is a bit darker than this image suggests.

Ah, thanks. I didn't go all the way through the discussion.

This set will use the updated furigana/rubi legends, but I am still looking through options of render services which can reflect this properly.

I'll look into it -- unfortunately I don't have any 40% boards for reference material in person, and a separate 40s kit making MOQ is a concern with custom colors.

Rather significant update today:

  • New renders by Janglad!
  • Sneak preview of novelties in the HB-CP render
  • Considering the addition of a 40% compat kit
  • Now that I have renders, I'm going to be approaching vendors. Ideally, aiming for Q4 2019 or Q1 2020

Also, I've put together another, much shorter form regarding novelties and a couple other things; please fill it out if you're interested!

We'll see, once I have a vendor I'll be able to figure out pricing and from there figure out the kit structure as to potentially breaking off the numpad, etc.

I'm also really happy that the renders are being well-received, it was well worth the effort and cost.

I've never seen the anime, but these colors are so pretty!

I saw in the second google form you asked about some differently colored novelites, and a potential white alpha kit.
Do you think you could post some images to give us a better idea of what you're thinking about? It's a bit hard for me to decide if I like the look of something that I can't see.

I'd also really like to see a more leaned down base kit for that leaned down price range.

The renders for this are so gorgeous they inspired me to finally register here so I could post and say so instead of just lurking. I've been waiting for a GMK set that really spoke to me, and I think this is the one. (Also, seems like the timing might be right in terms of being able to save up a bit of cash.) I'm glad you decided to go with the all-icons mods.

Regarding full vs. separate sets: I definitely get the appeal of an all-options-covered set (and it looks great on that 1800 layout), but I'd be interested in at least knowing the price breakdown for various smaller sets.

Good job, OP, I'm excited!

Thanks for all the kind words! There is some work to be done still, but I do have a vendor! Price estimates are forthcoming and I will announce vendors, proxies, and pricing simultaneously as one larger update.
I don't have renders for these just yet (they're paid for but I don't want to bother Janglad with revisions too much, and I'm waiting on one piece of novelty art still) but this is the current state of the novelties and the 40%/compat/text mod kit:

HB = Headband
XX = XX Novelty
HL = Horn heft
HR = Horn right
Blue legends = GMK V4 stock color
R1, R1, R3, R4, R4
The cap abbreviation/text here is for organizational purposes only and will be replaced for the actual novelties in the final renders/set.

There is also a novelty in the works that resembles the back of the instrument cluster on 02's suit which may replace either the 1u R4 XX or one of the 1.25u R4 novelties. If the kit ends up being too expensive as is, I'll see what I can do to reduce cost while keeping the spirit of the kit, which may involve dropping some of the white novelties or HL/HR.


40% + text mod compat:
This kit came as a result of working with the 40% keyboard Discord to get the compatibility right.
R1, R2, R3, R4, R4, R4

(IMHO Symbol-only mods were the only rational choice  ;) )

I think the novelties and how they look will become a bit clearer once the renders are done for that kit. The KLE admittedly looks a bit scrappy because the abbreviations are there just to keep it organized.
For instance, the "Darling!" key looks like this:

Also, since you're planning for 40% support, you might want to add  spacebars (or create another kit for that)

There will be a spacebar kit available. :) Also I've added a 1u R2 Esc tenatively to 40% compat, was meaning to but forgot. i'm not 100% sure that GMK has an icon legend for this, but I'll talk to my vendor and find out.

To follow on the subject, EnjoyPBT Kiro/Shiro set (further down in this forum section) introduced the following keycaps:

@'け and ~#む¥ for ISO compatibility, plus \|む¥ as well as Zつっ and Eいぃ, while it sticked to R1 \| only in the ISO part of the set,

where it differs from your proposed set.

Yes; however, with EPBT the legends do not require doubleshot tooling. I'd like to keep the base kit cost in control by not introducing more custom molds. I don't believe that GMK has JIS/UK-ISO compatibility molds with sublegends.

This is how things are shaping up right now, given that:

I am too, I'd like to keep it if I can but I need to figure out pricing through my vendor with/without it first. Adding custom molds to the base kit for it is sure to affect pricing.

That also being said, it still has generic ISO support. I'd rather have generic ISO support than a base kit with none, or one that costs some significant amount more for the sake of UK-ISO.

I'm definitely going to buy this keyset and I'm restraining myself from spending money on other sets that are currently available :)
Also here are my suggestions for the final product:
- I like the icon mods, but I still love the text mods, so I'd go with text mods for the base set, and the icon mods as an extension kit or vice versa. Best of both worlds;
- A blue novelty key representing Hiro, 02's darling will be excellent. It does not make sense color-wise, but it suits the theme, as Zero Two loves and always want to be with her Darling. Take the blue color from GMK Striker and you're good to go.
Again, can't wait for the group buy to open so that I can take this beautiful set home.

I think an ergodox/splitboard option where one half is the red/pink/white and the other side is blue/black would be cool, but probably near impossible to hit MOQ.

I'm definitely going to buy this keyset and I'm restraining myself from spending money on other sets that are currently available :)
Also here are my suggestions for the final product:
- I like the icon mods, but I still love the text mods, so I'd go with text mods for the base set, and the icon mods as an extension kit or vice versa. Best of both worlds;
- A blue novelty key representing Hiro, 02's darling will be excellent. It does not make sense color-wise, but it suits the theme, as Zero Two loves and always want to be with her Darling. Take the blue color from GMK Striker and you're good to go.
Again, can't wait for the group buy to open so that I can take this beautiful set home.

Here's the planned extension kit, which includes text bottom row mods. I'll update the OP with the rest of the renders together once they're completed.

Hey there!

I am David from CandyKeys, I was interested if you would want to co-operate to run this set in the EU as a proxy via CandyKeys, BUT as well as make custom cables with us and our own machinery, we would love to get as many GBs on board for these custom cables with custom colors as the host wishes and custom molded end (if the MOQ is good enough) USB-C cables. I would love to hear from you on your opinion and let me know if you want to know more! Our factory just started after setting up since December for some proper cables and we would love to give this a shot!

Hi David,

I appreciate the interest! My NA vendor and I still haven't received a quote from GMK as to pricing yet, so things aren't 100% set in stone and we're still figuring out proxies across the board. I believe he already has one in mind, but I'll bring this up and see what he has to say. I'll send you a PM on Geekhack if we decide to go forward with this idea.

Thanks for the support!

New update today everyone - novelty/spacebar/extension kit renders and a new IC form that reflects the changes. The old IC form was pretty disorganized, so hopefully this helps clean things up a bit.

Also just got word from my vendor that they've received quotes from GMK so that's another step closer to pricing/vendor announcements!

Yeah, as best Janglad could recreate them. We used some nav icon images of Red Honey as a reference. KLE is just *very* bad at displaying them, but I should have an actual base kit render sorted soon (ish). Another HB-CP render is also in the works to show the updated 1.5u 'headband' novelty that's shown in the novelties render.

Also as a side-note, I got permission from Janglad/Dixie to use the updated icon mods from 8008/9009 R3 on this set, which most of the renders have reflected (other than CapsLock) already.

Rather significant update this evening!

  • Newly updated renders for all boards to reflect proper icons and arrows. For reference, the set will be using Janglad's updated icon mods but OG GMK arrows.
  • Mod color F-keys have been cut from extension to reduce cost and kit bloat
  • Added base kit render
  • Added alphas kit with render

Hopefully I'll have final pricing soon, but expect an update with pricing, vendors, proxies and final GB date announcements within the next month or so!

I feel like the extra B should definitely be in the spacebars kit instead of the extension kit.

The goal of doing this was to make the spacebars kit as affordable as possible. Also, the Alice layout is still relatively niche, and there seems to be some overlap between the demographic of people who want an Alice-layout boards and those who want text bottom row mods.

Kinda sad that the extension kit does not have the text version for the nav cluster, but if it is to save cost, I'm fine with it.
I'm going to get the Darling - Parasite - Partner combo. The Clacksaur kit will also be considered if I have enough cash when the GB starts.

Yeah unfortunately including both icon and text nav cluster would have be prohibitively expensive.

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the lack up updates during November! I was planning on releasing deskmats last month but ended up re-commissioning the artwork for them, which should be finished in a couple weeks.

One minor update though:
It was brought to my attention that the images in the IC were being blocked by some adblockers due to the host I used. I've since migrated them to IMGUR, which should hopefully resolve any issues of that sort.

Hey everyone, sorry this update took such a long time! There are just under 2 weeks until the Groupbuy, it feels truly surreal.

The keyset has its own website now!
gmkdarling.moe

I'm super excited to finally announce the deskmats for GMK Darling and the RAMA X DARLING collab!
A note on the deskmats: I don't have physical samples yet but will update as soon as I get them.

I don't even watch this anime, I just like Japanese cherry blossoms. This set is hot.

Don't worry you're not missing much, in terms of premise and story it is pretty mediocre, but I agree this set is hot.

Really nice to see two deskmats with this! Love the cherry blossom theme in the first one.

But there are some things I'd like to say about the mats though.

The first one looks kinda like it's been painted over a picture (looking at the path vs everything else) and the base of some of the trees seem to stop at nothing. I would have added a bit more greenery to hide the bottom of them. There's also the areas with what I assume to be a white flower brush? It gives the illusion that it's the white canvas peeking out.

The second one looks more stylised but you can see the colour bleed through and the lineart opacity seems a bit low for lineart purposes.

I hope I'm not stepping on any toes here, wanted to help with offering feedback.

Those deskmats don't look very finished in my eyes..

Even the renders that I have for the mats are just that -- renders.

However, if the mats sample poorly i will discuss with my vendor about changing the designs or pulling them.

Thank you for the response! I look forward to seeing how the samples go.

With the group buy ending at the end of Feb. I'd say your looking at a July or August shipping date, maybe September if GMK Queues end up being longer since more sets are hitting extremely high MOQs.
