[IC] GMK Sloth
« on: Sun, 20 October 2019, 13:30:31 »
Hey everyone! Over the past couple of months, I've been working on a fun, lighthearted set, and it's finally time to see what others think about it.

I'd like to present GMK Sloth!

IC Form



The inspiration comes from the animal that everyone knows and loves, the sloth. Sloths are known for their slowness due to their low metabolism and deliberate slow movements to compensate for it. The color of their fur is either brown, tan, white, or gray depending on their species, and at times, their coat can sometimes host a symbiotic green algae to camouflage them in the trees. They primarily eat leaves and climb up branches to stay off the ground to avoid predators. Kristen Bell also loves them.



Lazy AF
The "Lazy AF" kit is for those who have a common 60%, 65%, 75%, TKL, and 1800 layout. It also includes the F13 key for those who need it.



Baby Sloth
The "Baby Sloth" kit (40s) is for those who like smaller or more niche layouts.



Branches
The "Branches" kit includes 6u spacebars and accent spacebars.



Slovelties
I think this one is self explanatory.



Deskmat




Renders

Bacca60




Chimera65




Austin







Colors:
  • RAL 1013 - Alphas/mod legends/Accent legends
  • RAL 090 40 10 Mods/Alpha legends
  • RAL 8028 - Accent

All colours are custom? Even the "white"? Is that really necessary? Could using a stock colour lower the price? Am I asking too many questions?

That said, I like the theme, the muted colours are interesting. Well done.

I guess it's not necessary but if 2 out of the 3 are custom, does adding one more make a difference? I'm not sure how it would affect the price if MOQ needs to be 250 anyways. I guess we shall see. We can adjust the white if necessary.

Thanks for the feedback!

From what I've heard, the price isn't affected by custom vs stock colours, only how many different colours there are. The main difference between stock colours and custom colours is that the MOQ for a set with only stock colours is 150, whereas the MOQ for a set with custom colours is 250. (minimum, vendors can choose to quote at 500 to reduce the price)

Can confirm, custom colors just raises the MOQ not the price. If you've got a single custom color there's no impact from more other than number of different colors total.


I like the colorway, I like the theme, I like that numpad is in the base kit. Be prepared for the "Atlantis ISO" guy to show up about how your ISO support is wrong for both US and UK ISO.

GMK Ursa may be what you're looking for.

I wonder if this set would be ostensibly improved if it used the mod color and the accent color as alternating mods (like Carbon did with the black and orange). Q&D mock up:

Do you mean the top left R1 esc key novelty? I tried doing a brown sloth, white background enter and while it did look good by itself, it didn't work with the set since all the other mods is brown or gray.

YUUS! Sloth is one of my faves!!!
I 100% back this set. So I filled out the IC form.

I have never designed a keycap set... So not sure what my suggestion is worth here. lol

But I read a comment about green accents. That would be cool. But I was thinking maybe some green legends. Like even just maybe on the mods? I personally am not the biggest fan of the color green. But I do like a more pastel green. Just think maybe it would look cool with a more pastel green. With green legends on the mods and accents.

But either way. I dig it! And im in 100% till the end. Will purchase.

Thanks! Green accents actually will make the set sort of look like Ursa. I actually chose a greener gray mod color in order to simulate the green algae that will sometimes stick onto the coat of a sloth. The set is meant to be a little muted so that the novelties will shine.

Thanks, I don't think the colors will change much now but I can understand that two sets with nature themes might look similar.

Please consider adding some r2 and r3 novelties. There are lots of great grey or greyish sets that these could pair well with.

agreed - theme aside these sets are extremely similar, and I think sloth is a green accent away from becoming ursa

As cool as sloths are, I do feel like this should have been a novelties kit for GMK Ursa. That being said, you've told me before that you thought Ashes looked like an early concept of Burnt Orange "but if you just turn the colors off on that, shrug" I still feel like that was an insult to my set as it had nothing to do with your set. Rudy looks nothing like Forge, please stop doing that.

I think that was a tongue in cheek because forge with alternate alphas was called a clone of Rudy.

Walker has previously referred to Forge as a Rudy clone, and was especially aggravated when alternate alphas were added. DB was simply flipping that on its head. If anything, you've backed up DB here.

Thanks for the interest! It'll definitely be a while before this hits GB. We currently have a slot with a vendor but since there's been so many GMK sets, the slot is still a good ways away. Rest assured, slowly but surely this will happen. :)

No big updates at the moment. We're still quite a while away from the GB slot. I might go back and work the colors just a little.
