[IC] GMK Nightshade
« on: Tue, 17 September 2019, 17:07:35 »
226492-0

It is night, the wind blows through the leaves and howls in the distance, the air carries an unnatural chill. A small house sits among the trees, weathered by the centuries, unkempt as if nothing had lived there in years. Shattered windows draped in tattered cloth blowing in the wind. Inside, a black cauldron sits filled with a purple potion, papers strewn about on the floor. The room is dark, lit only by the moon light which enters through the windows and the glow of the potion colors the room a faint purple. The house is quiet, and tension fills the air.

The floor creaks and sways as the house closes in, darkness takes over. A faint murmur can be heard in the distance, growing ever closer. Soon they surround you, voices coming from all directions. Paralyzed, you watch as mist fills the air. In front of you a pair of eyes open up as the voices stop. Silence. It slowly smiles at you, a malicious grin made of purple flames dancing in the darkness. She has awakened. Slow footsteps can be heard from behind, something is coming but you can’t move, you can’t escape. You feel weak, your vision blurring as she gets closer, her presence draining you of energy.

Before you ask, no RAL colors match what I was wanting.


Accessories:
I will be getting a deskmat and novelties made once I have an idea of the interest level of this set. May do an artisan collab as well, but that is way down the line atm.



Vendors/Dates:
TBD



Timeline:
For now, I am just trying to put this set out there and get feedback on what is shown. Then move forward with getting the rest sorted out for a possible run date and all.

I like it! If the Mod legends are more legible than Violet Tendencies I think I'll get a set.

Not sure honestly, will depend on interest.

I might add that in, so maybe.

Probably not, this is my favorite style of mods, so will most likely be keeping it as is.

I have a few things on my wishlist!

1. Possible to have R0/R5 keycaps?

2. Can we have varied more varied novelties in different colours covering the entire function row (similar to GMK Night Runner, GMK Laser and GMK Carbon).

Cheers!

I actually second this one on the R5 bottom row, it is underappreciated  :))

1) Most likely not, it would require a lot of reworking of compatibility.
2) I will most likely do something similar to Night Runner but not set on what exactly yet.

...I never realized how close that is lol.

Generally dislike blue sets but this looks clean!
Btw, the first caption on the grid600 renders says "grid600 is black" instead of in.

I'm in the "Nightrunner was better" camp here, think this one is a bit bland, and has that "seen a bit too much" these times what with all the dark theme sets running these months.

Update:


Working on getting novelties designed at the moment, will update when those are ready. Color samples should be in soon as well so will update with all the information I can when I get them (if I can get good pictures that is).

Thank you all for your interest so far!

Oof, I've been working on a set very very similar to this gradually over the course of a year. If you've met me on Discord I might have even teased it.

Best of luck for this one!

I would empty my bank account for some sort of dagger/kunai/syringe with drips coming off of it for the novelties. maybe some small flowers too.

Seconding a request for Colevrak. Responded to the IC form saying as much. Are the two spacebars in the 40s kit (next to the +) 2u or 1.75u?

Curses! Maybe I'm just overly into Keeb.io's split boards; those all use two 2u spacebars. Hmmmmm....

Been quite busy recently so haven't had a chance to get as much done for this as I would have liked but do know that I am still slowly working towards novelties in the background.
