[IC] GMK Astral (Vote on color & compatibility)
« on: Thu, 08 August 2019, 12:52:01 »
GMK Astral

Hey everybody,

This is GMK Astral, the light star version of GMK Astral Dark: (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=102149.0)

The two sets will be released separately.


We are in the phase of open discussion.

Leave a comment with your thoughts:


1. Light vs Dark which does everyone like better? Or both?

2. What kind of compatibility are you looking for?

3. If you need specific compatibility, what keys (row + size) do you need?


Thanks

- NP

Does not feel very silver but I do really like the light purple here. I would like to suggest a second accent color being the dark purple, dual accents are super nice imo and would work well here! GL with IC  :thumb:

I usually do not like purple but this purple is so nice. I personally would not like a dark purple but so far this set looks very nice. I like the color on the esc very much.  :thumb:

is there a barely visible difference between the alphas and mods? or are my eyes tricking me?

Mods are def a bit darker.

I live the colors, I'd be up for a silver keyset, but I'm not sure how you get to silver from these colors. (gmk stardust?)

It looks nice, have you considered running it through ePBT perhaps? All of these keys can be dyesubbed without reverse dyesub. :)

Exactly my thoughts. I feel like this is one of those sets that would look even better in person.

Hey,

That's not silver.

Although I like the colors, just not a huge fan of purple shade so I won't be pulling out my wallet.

Are the mods a slightly darker shade than alphas?
Once a set shines, it is truly yours. It is then your job to nurture it and care for it.
Love it until it blossoms into the beautiful fully and evenly shined set it has always wanted to be since it saw a shined set on Instagram under the hashtag #perfection.
Support it and maintain it until it will grow into itself and become one with itself. Then you can truly enjoy the typing experience
Sincerely,
       Hineybush

You could name the set GMK Stardust in order to fit with the inspiration and also since the colors aren't really that silver.

This looks amazing, and I'd love to own this set. Pairs very very nicely with a silver or white case. If this ever gets close to reality I'd get it with that in mind.

I'd love to see icon mods. I don't think this needs novelties or anything like that, unless you're feeling inspired. A basic kit in an interesting color, like GMK Sandstorm.

What do you all think if we called this one GMK Halo?

Is there too much correlation to the Halo switches? Let me know your thoughts.

I really like this!

Similar vein: GMK Ethereal. Has a wispy, transitory vibe, kind of like the almost-not-there silver/purple on the alphas.

I like the set too, especially if its easier on the wallet. Maybe shorten it to "GMK Celest"?

I like both but leaning more towards dark. I think dark would look even better with just a tad bit more purple and/or saturation.

Don't care for sub-legends but not a deal-breaker.

Would love to see a few novelties as long as the price is kept reasonable and there are more r4 novelties than r1.
