Same as with Mizu I wanted these kits to be affordable but at the same time cover as many layouts as possible without compromising on important keys.
All of the colors are custom RALs to provide the best GMK match.

I know you are following a set theme with this set, but I personally would feel it'd benefit you more if you brought something "new" and "exciting" with each iteration.
You are a creative guy, and although Terra is nice, I personally feel that I would be more excited and look forward to each new element if it was something more than just a palette swap.
Similar to hisuis design, it feels like you have found a formula that you both like and stick to it, but this can quickly get repetitive (at least to me personally).

You are one of my favorite designers, hope we can see some innovation and breaths of fresh, creative air moving forwards. :)

Aren't most GMK sets the same exact product with different colors + or - a few keys?

Like anyone that collects artisians of the same sculpt in a new color way, it's cool that they are the same with different colors, making it a set. That's the point.

Hmm, I think you missed my point completely. :)

To put in to simple terms, you know how there are countless of dolch colorways, countless of hyperfuses? Just by looking at them, you can tell what it is. This is on another level, though. Looking at Rens and hisuis sets, I can tell it is theirs by the style - which on one hand is good, to have such a distinct and recognizible style. I however kind of feel like GMK as a whole is stagnating a bit, and I am getting bored.
I look to talented designers, like Ren for example, to wow me and present me something new and exciting, as I am losing interest looking at what we have circulating now.

Handarbeit is a bit of fresh air, unironically, I hope we see some norms being broken moving forwards.
Maybe it's not going to happen in this series of keysets, but all I can do is share my personal feedback, regardless if anyone agrees or not. :)

Abec literally just commented something similar to what I was originally going to say on this subject, but the sets are different in terms of design. Terra is definitely a much darker set over all, but that works to the benefit of its theme, IMHO.

Similar to hisuis design, it feels like you have found a formula that you both like and stick to it, but this can quickly get repetitive (at least to me personally).

So how exactly does Hisui have a design 'formula' if Moon Dust is her first ever set that she's IC'd?

You are one of my favorite designers, hope we can see some innovation and breaths of fresh, creative air moving forwards. :)

Ren did design, IC, and successfully run (with the help of Upas) Peaches N' Cream before Terra was ever in IC, not sure what else to consider a different project like PnC other than "a breath of fresh air."

I don't even get what you mean. Mizu has three colors in the true base. Terra only has two. That right there immediately makes a huge difference. Also Terra has two accent colors and Mizu only had one. So this is obviously not just Mizu altered to green. If you're going to make claims this bold, at least add some specific criticisms and feedback.

Sigh, you both miss the point completely. Maybe I am just bad at phrasing my thoughts, or maybe nobody agrees with me. Read my second reply, and if you don't get it by then, then I'm not sure how to convey it.

I am not saying Terra is a clone, I like Terra - just like I like Mizu and got that.
What I am saying is that I think keycaps in general feels a bit stagnated TO ME. I hope talented designers think of new ways to breathe some life into it.

Maybe there is no need for that, and it's fine as it is, I am just speaking from my perspective and what I feel. And no, I don't consider myself an amazing designer that will reshape the scene, before you even think of replying that.

My expectations might be too high, maybe it was the wrong thread to voice my opinion. In any case, good luck with the set - I'll be keeping an eye on it! :)

Considering that this is someone's IC thread for a specific set and your argument of stagnation in keyset design seems to be relatively broad, I'd say that might be a pretty solid evaluation.

Well Janglad and I did a ton of work to bring new life to keycap sets with the new mod legends and you didn't like that either. So I don't really know what will satisfy you lol

I would pay close attention to your own standards before going off like this. If you would like to continue discussion of designs being stagnant, maybe you should look at Nines being veryyyy close to Carbon Boneyard. Scitex? Already existed. Firefly, not catching my fancy either as the palette colors, still, do not invoke feelings of "fireflies." I guess every set should be muted and bland for you to be excited.

I don't think Emir was "going off" on Terra.  I think he (or she) was making a broader comment about GMK sets on a whole, as of late.  From the short time that I've been on this forum, designs seem to give birth to new designs, that's just how things go.  As usual, if you don't like it, maybe voice your opinion in a constructive way, but don't go trashing people's sets.  If you don't like it, then don't buy it.

Edit:  Back on topic, it's a very cool set, I've always been a fan of the series.  Good work!

Love the set, I think it looks great but I'm personally not a fan of either the gray or yellow accent keys. It doesn't seem to match at all.

I like the green/black mix, but the green caps are a bit much. I would love to see black alphas as an option.

You need some beige, I don't recall the Earth nation wearing such black clothes, and the green hue is kinda different than ATLA. Not a fan of the current colours, personally.

Appreciate the feedback! I had some versions with beige but did not like them as much as the current version. As for the greens, in the show, several shades of greens are used for the earth kingdom. Also, the mods are not black they're very dark green  ;D

This set has me re watching season 2. Yeah, the mods green is pretty dark, but there's a lotta green and the alphas are right on. Mods will just need a bit of light in the room (I have GMK Phantom which is a similar beast)

I see. I guess i don't like the very-dark-almost-black green. It is true that several shades of green were used, but I don't think often enough for them to make me associate the dark tones with the earth kingdom (not counting Korra). The green here http://pm1.narvii.com/6941/b5eea2103ec2e386303d0c35e840f28d256109e8r1-538-396v2_uhq.jpg is more earth-kingdom-ey to me.

Ortho folks who don't use Tab or Esc on r3. Similar to 60% folks who don't use caps lock at that position.

If not, I could just use the r3, 1u novelty so please don't take it out!

Ok, based on the poll I took for the deskmats. The Warrior deskmat was a hit and will make it to GB! For the other one, I had a lot of suggestions to keep the trend going for the element deskmat and I think that's what we'll do. This way we will have one mat that follows a theme across all 4 keysets/elements. I hope you guys like the new changes  ;D

I agree, and in the Google poll, I had a question asking if people would rather swap the 2 accent colors, making the yellow the primary one with arrows and spacebars. And it has won the poll by a landslide, so new renders with these changes will be coming soon.  :thumb:

Are the novelty designs set in stone? Is there any chance you'd consider making the art style a little less cartoony? Maybe more Earth Kindom symbolism rather than.. what is currently proposed  ;D

They're not in stone and I might be moving a few around based on feedback, but the show these are based on is a cartoon. The style of these was done by the same artist as Mizu, the feedback has been very well received on the current designs. Hope this helps!  ;D

Update: I have made some changes to the kits based on the last month of feedback from everyone!

1) The primary accent color has been changed to yellow over the grey due to popular demand (looks great, good call on the community's part)
2) You will notice the novelties kit has changed a bit as we brought the avatar novelty back and yes it does have glow font! Also, I added 2 R4 1.25 novelties for the Kyoshi fans.

You will see the changes reflected in the main post & more updates coming soon!  :thumb:

Thanks for the GITD novelty, I (along with many, I imagine [but maybe not?]) placed that as one of my comments on the IC form. I hope that there is a GITD novelty for every nation's kit. It's kind of a staple of the sets IMO.

Kinda feel the SodieCaps are sort of meh. as they have nothing to do with the theme other than being green. would be better to see something that looked like a rock, kyoshi's crown, or something at all related to avatar or the earth kingdom.

The dark one is nicer in my opinion.
If the green glow color really matches the glow color of the crystals in the tunnels, that would be aewsome!
