Hello Geekhack!

This is my first Interest Check for a keyset, GMK Ashes, A volcanic ash set with soft colors.

Show Image



Design & Inspiration
This idea originally began as a dark keyset, I was working with a lot of dark gray and red pantone colors, after rethinking what I was trying to achieve I decided to look at other keysets to get ideas, I decided to try to invert the colors similar to GMK Honeywell to test out that idea and really liked the look of it. I threw out the red because it just didn't fit in well with the set but kept the gray colors. Then I started messing with more with different shades of gray and came to love the final result of colors!


I present to you GMK Ashes:

Kit Design
Base
This base kit is still changing everyday, I plan on having support for standard TKLs to 65%, WKL bottom rows, HHKB, a numpad and more! I am also working on getting some renders that will use Left Centered Legends for Mods! I really would love to give the legends a shot seeing as they are going to be on 9009 R3! I Originally had Pantones on the left that I was going to use to color match but ended up switching to RAL colors that were very similar to the Pantones.

BASE RAL COLORS:
Alpha Base Color: 260 40 05 - Swedish Blue
Mod Base Color : 250 85 05 - White Blue
Accent Base Color: 9011 (Classic 840) - Graphite Black

Show Image
New RAL colors on the Left, Old Pantones on the Right

Additional Kits
I am planning on working on a spacebars kit, icon mod kit, and a 40s kit. These kit will all vary on the responses from the Google Form so please help me out and let me know what kits you would buy from this set! Just got renders of mod colored alphas.

I mentioned something similar earlier but got no response from OP. The ghost kit needs some work. In my opinion it needs the following...

- F1-4 and F9-12 (like you mentioned)
- both barred and scooped homing keys
- R4 1u |/ (for HHKB compat.)
- R4 1u ~’ (I know it’s in the base but it would be nice here too for mixing and matching sets)

Also, OP includes a second light grey B but not a second B in dark grey for Alice-like layouts.

Hey man! All feedback has been reviewed and is taken into consideration, currently at this time I am unsure if the Ghost Kit will hit MOQ, so it's still under consideration if we will run it. I am going to watch these other keysets that have alt alphas and depending on how well those alt alphas sell I might run it, if we run it I will definitely include the R4 1u |\ and ~` because I use a split bs setup so I'd definitely want those, a second B is also a possibility too, as for the F row and the barred and scooped that's something we will look into. I would also like to add an extra tab key in the kit too to allow for two builds. All of this depends on how the other sets do with their kits that are like this and how much it'll cost. I don't want this kit to run to high.

If you do decide to add the second Tab, consider adding a second Home (by the Sea) key as well — as the kits stand now, a second Tab and a second Home are all that's needed to make a TKL and a 65% or a 60% (instead of just a 60%).

Figured I'd say a few things after noticing some issues.

  • Your base kit has a single dark gray B however in the extra set of keys included with the base set you have an accented B rather than a matching base alpha. You might want to change that so you have 2 of the same colored B keys, considering the TGR Alice style board renders you use show two of the same colored alphas.
  • The modifier color feels a bit light in terms of being gray. Normally ash in real life has a darker gray color to it if it's not from something like a Kingston charcoal briquet.
  • Coloring in the renders seems to flip flop a bit. Some of the renders make the modifiers darker and some make them look rather white. Another thing is, is the viewing distance it could be a bit closer. Half of the renders look like I'm standing behind a rope link 10ft away trying to see what's behind the case.
  • The Kepler render doesn't really do much with the weird rain-snow effect going on.

Nothing is final on the kits, colors are correct for the most part, although I do agree that the Ghost Kit render is a little bit too bright compared to the other renders. I'm not sure what you mean by the renders looking really small, they look fine to me, more renders are being made for the set too. The Ashes falling on the Kepler is something that OneFiveNine decided to put in the render for the Kepler, I liked it and decided to keep it.

Thanks! The alphas are going to be in a similar color to cool grey 11c, I actually already have the pantone chip at home, and just got a RAL deck today, so expect color comparison picks in an upcoming update. As for international kit, I have not looked into one, unfortunately the likelihood of a international kit hitting MOQ is very unlikely so I will not be looking forward into it. Sorry, if intl kits were hitting MOQ on other sets then maybe I'd look into it, but I don't like the thought of individual kits failing. I am trying to include UK-ISO in the base kit to at least have compatibility over there and offer a correct ISO layout. Thanks for supporting the set! I'll be making more updates whenever I can. :)

Hey guys, just wanted to give a quick update on the set! I have dates finalized for the set, the RAL Deck just got to my apartment so I will be getting color matched pics of the pantones next to the RAL counterparts that I went with for the actual colors to give everyone a comparison! Sets are being finalized and rendered, along with more renders on the way! I'm also contacting artisan makers and will be trying to contact RAMA to see about getting metal caps made for the set! Thanks again for all the feedback and look forward to seeing everyone's excitement once more stuff comes out!

Really into this set, and agree with what others said about the Ghost kit.

I was looking through the renders and the base kit alphas seem to range between light grey and charcoal based on the different renders. Idk if that is lighting, background, etc - but maybe a few pictures on a white/neutral background to help show what the true color is. It's great regardless, but some clarity would be appreciated.

If you are going to to give two alphas options can you pretty please have the gb sell 1.) mods (as base) 2.) alpha option 1 3.) alpha option 2. That would be really appreciated if you are certain to meet minimum order requirements.

Other than that a very lovely gray set. Very nice!

If that was viable for pricing, oblotsky would have done just that for oblivion.
That division works for SA and KAT, and it seems not to for GMK.  I'd probably pay money for the quote just so I have data every time I type this. Perhaps oblotsky could give us a ballpark figure.

Like IOVERCALLHISTIOCYTES said, these options would not be viable, if I had to guess this would raise the price of the mods alone to somewhere close to $100, then $60 for each alpha kit, making a "base kit" cost around $160~ I am not looking to do that as the set would probably not sell as well. I plan on also keeping the numpad in the base kit, if I were to break the set into a ton of different kits, I'm not too sure if all of them would make it, that's too big of a gamble for me. As of right now I am only looking to have a few kits for sale for the set, I have a few more renders and physical samples of the RAL colors too that I am waiting on posting until I can get shots of them in better lighting. I am going to try hard to make sure that prices are reasonable for everyone. Thank you for your interest in this set!

Well if you're dying make sure you go rest at a bonfire first. ;)

I just freshened up the IC a little bit more, replaced some renders here and there and made an album of most of the renders so far for the set. Novelties are coming soon, working on some renders of them and will post them soon.

Before you finalize the kits, don't forget to...

Base kit.
- Add the missing R1 (not the same as `~) keycap to complete English (UK) over ISO support (right now, the base kit has the "eastwardest" version of Atlantis ISO yet, although still Atlantis ISO).
- Highly consider adding the missing R3 \| key to complete English (USA) over ISO and ANSISO support.
- I still don't get why the horizontal ("ANSI") Enter and the numpad Enter get to be light gray and dark, but the vertical ("ISO") Enter key has the options of light and middle gray instead.

Ghost kit:
- English (UK) over ISO?
- English (USA) over ISO and ANSISO?
- The option of adding a second R2 1.5U Tab keycap to secondary alphas kit has become pretty well accepted. Has this considered?
- Same goes for a second R1 Home (by the Sea) keycap.

Thank you very much for adding the Satisfaction75 render with full Ghost kit and full F Row keys in white! Its so clean  :thumb:

I hope the F1-F4 and F9-F12 get added somewhere, but know it's hard. At least I have a visual to dream about. Thanks again!

Mini update -

Things I'm working on -

Novelty Renders (I have renders of them right now, just need to get some more of them in the Base Kit and on boards)
More Revised Kit Renders (Adding second Home key, second tab key, F1-F4 and F9-F12 to ghost kit)
Removing Black Accent color, looking at the possibility of only sticking with the 2 custom RAL colors
Figuring out if UK-ISO can fit in base kit (Potentially moving forward with just Atlantis ISO in Base, sorry depletedvespene)
Adding R3 \| key to base
GB Date (I know everyone is waiting to find out, I plan on announcing it in the next render drop)

Things I'm not working on -

Text Mods
Icon Mods
More Novelties (The base kit will have a few novelties in it, not enough for a full kit, but enough that I could add them to the base kit)

I am working on the kits right now and noticed that there is already a R3 1u pipe key in the base kit on the current render, was there another one that you are saying is missing. A lot of what you pointed out has actually been considered already and will definitely make the next upcoming renders. :)
Correction: That is a R4 key that I was looking at, I'll be sure to add a R3 1u pipe key.

If a 6u centered stem spacebar happens... I'm in without question.

Just checking -- are those 1.75 and 1.25 spacebars convex!? I'm excited to see those starting to appear in sets. For the 40s kit, may I suggest including at least one 1.25 R3 enter key? It's useful for layouts that are overall 12.5u wide, e.g. the UT47. Also, two convex 2.25u spacebars in the 40s kit would be a great addition.

Nice job on the set overall. Between this and Apollo, it may be a tough choice, but the num pad in the base kit is a plus for me.
