[IC] GMK Pole Position | Form added
« on: Thu, 25 April 2019, 08:15:14 »
Hello everyone.  After thinking about it for a little bit I have decided to launch an IC for my Ferrari F1 themed keycap set.

Even if you are not a fan of Ferrari, it is a household name in motorsports and their legacy is undeniable.  This is a pretty early stage IC and a lot of work would need to be done if this ever moved forward

The general idea is to match the SF90, the 2019 Ferrari F1 Car.
 
It currently features one GMK custom color, Ferrari Red, #FF2800.  The yellow in the set matches the yellow of the Ferrari logo, not the shell logo on the car. 

I am currently using GMK stock color CV and while it is not an exact match, it is very close and I am considering custom matching if there is interest.

I will not be using any Ferrari or Formula 1 IP for novelties or naming.

I am currently toying with the two following color schemes.
White on red alphas, red on black mods.


Black on red alphas, white on black mods.


If you are at all interested in this set, please take a few moments to fill out this form.  Thanks!

Initial IC info

I've had an idea for this set for a little while but finally messed with it after keycaprenders.com came out.  Likely nothing will come off it but I'd still like to share it.

Introducing the newest driver for the GMK F1 team, GMK Leclerc*.

Using Ferrari red and yellow custom colors
217972-0

Approximation using GMK stock colors
More

This set is based on the SF90, Ferrari's 2019 F1 car.


And the name comes from Charles Leclerc, a young Monégasque driver who has won over fans with his incredible performances at a young age, as well as heartbreaking defeat at the 2019 Bahrain Grand Prix

I first made the set with GMK stock colors but also again with custom colors to see how much of a difference it would make. if people are interested I will work on novelties and kits

*name will probably change.  I don't want to infringe on any thing Ferrari related.  suggestions welcome

Thanks  :)

It was pretty easy to find the actual RGB codes for Ferrari Red and the Shell logo:

#ffd500
#ff2800

This might be a little closer to what you had in mind.

edit: it just occurred to me that you were probably looking at the colour of the horse, not the Shell logo. Whoops.

I was looking at the horse when I made it, but the shell is also an option. 
Thank you! I was just messing around with the GMK stock colors but I think I will update with the actual colors.

In, a suggessting, black mods with red legends. IMO will make it more interesting. Also, avoid any names or likeness to Ferrari or CL, as it may infringe on IP and may drive up the cost.

Thanks for the suggestions!  I definitely wasn't planning on using any Ferrari IP for novelties for that exact reason, and I should probably come up with a better name. It was just what I was thinking of when i made it up ha

Hmm. Not really digging red legends. What about white on red?

i think an accurate render to speak on how bright the red is would help. i like the idea a lot.

Thanks for quick render update, imo, 1st render is perfect, already quite a few sets with WoB theme modes. This is definitely new. Now if only the red color can be nailed. I am not too fond of this year livery colour has it has a bit orangish hint to red which dims it a bit. A Ferrari themed drop should have rosso corsa in it. Again imho.

It looks fast! Yellow legends on the red alphas would look more Ferrari to me.

I know the perfect case for this set....

that schumacher face in the corner is kinda creepy staring at you.

thanks for all the responses guys.  I have a lot of feedback and some ideas that could make the set better.  Life is pretty busy but hopefully I can get a chance revisit and greatly improve this idea as there was definitely some interest.
