[IC] GMK "Guren IC"
« on: Thu, 26 September 2019, 16:59:21 »
Hi! This is my first designed keycap set! After some feedback from friends and people online I have decided to go through with an interest check for the set, If all goes well I will be shooting for late 2019 early 2020 production/ship date.

If this interest check goes decently I will commission some better renderings and then initiate my plans to also add in an alternate alpha kit, some different modifiers, and an ortholinear kit as well.

Google Form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdt0yeYvctAij6Vt8EymhSu8wq1yIUUr2mWANHe3391UtNKcg/viewform

Keycap Renders:

Price:

Will be around $130-170 depending on interest and groupbuy numbers.

Thanks!

Hmmm.

I'd recommend explaining a little bit more about the inspiration behind this set (other than "pink") and also seeing if you can't find someone to get some decent renders done. If you just use the linked ones there's a big risk you won't garner much interest and your dreams for this set may die.

Have you color matched to any Pantones or, better yet, RAL codes?

You've also given pretty sparse information about layout support and plans (if any).

As it stands, I'd be a pass on this.

Hi! Thanks for the feedback! My inspiration for this keycap set also is in the name, the character Guren from Naruto who has the ability to control pink crystals. I will try and look into getting some good renders done as well, any recommendations on who I could contact for this?

saw your mechmarket post then it disappeared. Had to look up Guren too.

Any chance GMK's stock color 3c about what you had in mind? Im sure a better RAL color exists for your vision. The tough thing with these renders is the metallic sheen which alters the coloring a little bit.

Got novelty designs you're thinking of, or no?

The 3c is the exact alpha background color, and I do have some crystal novelties that I am currently working on

Cool. using a stock color would save on cost, especially if it's one of two.
