[IC] GMK Posh (Novelties, Deskmats & more Renders!)
« on: Sun, 09 February 2020, 16:26:17 »



GMK Posh is inspired by the theme of "his and hers." It offers a light cream base paired with navy blue and dusty rose pink.




Updates
Due to popular demand, Novelties kit has been added and the deskmats are recreated with a pattern. I'm still waiting on responses for more artisan collaborations as well. More renders of alt alphas + base mods and base alphas + alt mods combinations have been added for people who wanted to see what it'd look like as well!

I understand perhaps not all the childs kits may pass the MOQ. However, I still wanted to offer the different kits to give it a chance based on the interests and suggestions from the previous IC form.


I appreciate any criticism or suggestions on what you'd like to see, so please fill out the interest check form!

I really like the navy blue on white alphas with the pink on navy mods. I'm interested!

I'm a fan. I'd love to see some ISO renders as I think that pink enter key will look really nice.

Shame more cases don't come in navy or other complimentary colors. :(

I'm a fan of the pink alphas but I think it really comes down to how saturated the pink is. The base kit render you put up has a really washed out looking pink (way to light relative to the white base) on the alphas while the board renders look much better.

Interested to see where this kit goes.

For sure! Will saturate the pink a little more (while keeping the ‘light / pastel’ pink feel) and find a colour that won’t look too washed out. I’ll put up better kit renders for a more accurate representation soon too!

Not a fan of the pink alpha legends, but I really like both of the alternate kits.

UPDATE: April 28th, 2020

Updated the entire post with new renders, kits and a new Interest Check form! Little things have been tweaked here and there (base kit alpha colours switched from pink to blue, separated the blue on pink mods and pink on white alphas as separate kits, along with an addition of 40's and spacebars kit).

Please fill out the new IC form here!: https://forms.gle/1xSKovdtrKbxbzw57

Any feedback is appreciated! Thanks!

Cool, I like the colors of this set more than I remember. Although, it looks like R4 1.25u Fn, R3 PgUp and R4 PgDn are missing from the base kit. Consider changing the 1.25u Menu key to Fn, since Fn is a versatile legend that can also work as a Menu key. Also consider adding R3 PgUp, R4 PgDn for 65%/75% users.
thank you for coming to my ted talk

My mistake! I've now added the R3, R4, PgUp and PgDn and changed 'Menu' to Fn. I've also removed 'Meta' and changed it all to Code for consistency. The renders for the base kit and alt mods are updated with this change!

Like navy on pink alphas? I haven't considered it as navy on white alphas seemed to be the most popular amongst the people who have entered the IC previously!

hey, am i mistaken or is there no second B key with the normal alpha legend colour? I can only see a second B with the legend colour of the alt alpha kit

There is no second B as of yet - and the pink B legend in the 40's kit has been changed to a navy B (as well as the " key). I will add a second B to the Alt Alpha kit if there are enough interests for the kit itself!

Those deskmats are pretty cute! I think I have a sweater or two that look like that ;)

The novelties are cool too. I'm not a fan of the pink legends alpha kit, though.

I actually quite like the softness the pink legends give to the alphas. I just don't like how light they are. From far away the caps almost look like blanks. The navy legends, while still super nice, just seem a bit harsh against the off white alphas. I'd recommend a slightly darker pink while still keeping the same tone, but adding another color would likely just drive the cost up on an already pricey set given its being run in GMK.

I like that you are making stand-alone modifier kits (like the one in ALT MODS). It will be great at allowing mix and match customizations without having to invest in a full kit. Thank you so much!

Initially, I have considered making the base kit and alternate kits into 2 whole base kits... But I separated them into different kits (even if all the kits may or may not run), because alt mods are understandably far more popular than alt alphas. Hehe thanks for your interest!!
