[IC] GMK Botanical |EVEN MORE DARK SCENE RENDERS!!
« on: Sat, 07 September 2019, 21:07:37 »
225981-0

Hey Everyone!


I would like to present to you GMK Botanical, A set I have been working on for some time now.

"A Breath Of Freshness and Tranquility"

The inspiration for this set came from a sudden vision of being surrounded by plants whilst working. From Tropical Ivy to jungle plants, I found myself immersed in this natural, serene environment that fuels creativity while providing a timeless aesthetic that seamlessly integrates into any environment. Now back to reality, I present GMK Botanical.

Her'es the colour palette and a moodboard which was used for visual reference

225983-1

Please fill out the IC Form as it helps gauge interest as well as make any necessary adjustments to the set
https://forms.gle/bDKZFYFXZ5wgjm417

-Proposed Kits-

JUNGLE
225985-2

SAPLING
225987-3

BAMBOO
225989-4

SUCCULENTS
225991-5

some context for the novelty - Feng shui "Feng shui, also known as Chinese geomancy, is pseudoscience originating from ancient China, which claims to use energy forces to harmonize individuals with their surrounding environment" in the design world Feng Shui is always an important consideration when working on interior design. YES Feng Shui has Chinese origin but the japanese has more aesthetic to it :D Hope this clears up some confusion on the Enter novelty! although it seems everyone would much rather prefer something else so it will be revised.

I'm pretty into this set! You don't see too many nice-looking ones with green color ways. Great kit names, too! Looking forward to following along.

Colors and novelties are great. Whole thing is really well put together and polished like a late IC might be right before group buy.

In for base bars and succulents

Damn fine looking set.   I was messing around with some of these color schemes on an Oktoberfest themed set Iím trying to design.  I really want to design keycap sets but am having difficulty with where to begin.  Hopefully some day Iíll get to where you are.

Love the theme.

Careful with matching colored backgrounds though. It can be hard to distinguish the colors appropriately. Dixie ran into this with 8008 and had to correct the renders.

This kit colorway is quite beautiful. I am, however not a fan of the plant novelties. Maybe because I am reminded of a marijuana plant somehow.

I also think the font and katakana character spacing of the "ENTER" key is too large. Would you consider making them smaller and a little more condensed?

I think it's likely that unless you're careful with your colour samples, this will turn out gray. I agree with the above sentiment that rendering on a similar-coloured background is deceptive with the kits, as seen on the boards. That said, if you're aiming for the very subdued, green-only-if-you-tell-me-its-green kinda look, it's pretty spot on.

Also agree that the enter key novelty is off and would suggest some sort of leaf design instead of japanese legends please. Otherwise, looks pretty good!

Colors seem pretty muted, but I guess people like less loud green sets. I will say I'm a fan of the darker green though. Also gotta mention unless you plan on putting some bonsai themes into this set, Japanese enter novelty seems a little pointless. I know people are really into the weeb legends, but seems a tad bit much. Expecting good things from this set, def on my watchlist.

Very pleasant colourway, nice job. Also liking the kits!

However, instead of the weeb Enter novelty I think an actual plant icon would suit this set much better.

Just about to write this, also thought just プラント for enter keys would be awkwardly short?

enter keys should have "enteeeeeeeer" printed on them instead of "enter" so it can fill the whole length

Beautiful kit.  Filled out the IC form.  I really dig the Botanical header image layout and imo the deskmat design would look better following that w/ the leaves on the left side only.

My two cents is that if you wanted japanese legends, make a separate set of just japanese legends. Sub legends would kill the relaxing and spacious feeling that this shade of green brings

But I've noticed that the spacebars in the accent kit have a different color in the IC form as compared to the Geekhack page. Which ones are correct?

maybe a somewhat hot take: ditch the japanese

there doesn't seem to be any link between this set and anything japanese themed so that novelty looks quite forced (and that's leaving out the fact that the japanese is wrong altogether).
