[IC] GMK Red Dragon | Update #3: Color Poll! 3/27
« on: Mon, 16 March 2020, 18:19:55 »



Hey everyone!
I'm happy to bring you the 3rd installment of my element keyset series, GMK Red Dragon.
Just as dragons are mythical creatures born of fire, so is this keyset!
I hope you enjoy the dark red modifiers, with the legends appearing as bright embers amongst the dark ashy grey alphas.

That's a lot of simultaneous ICs and GBs to manage. I'd be a bit concerned as to how one can manage this kind of pipeline.

1. [GB] GMK Peaches and Cream
2. [GB] GMK Terra
3. [GB] KAT Atlantis
4. [IC] KAT Goddess
5. [IC] KAT Explosion
6. [IC] PBT R&R or GMK R&R?
7. [IC] GMK Red Dragon

I understand having a lot of ideas and wanting them to be successfully produced as per the designer's preferences, but I am worried this is spreading way too thinly.

More importantly, it is a bit alarming to me that this may be an attempt to "claim" the spot to an idea (by having an IC thread in existence), or worse yet, in the queue of sets to be produced.

But with things being so busy for one person, I can't imagine these would all proceed well with no hiccups.

I don't think Ren has to defend himself on this one. I don't understand why this opinion/perspective is being given voice.  The guy has proven repeatedly that his designs are top notch, and from beginning to end each IC/GB has seen excellent attention and communication with people who have interest in the product.

But with things being so busy for one person, I can't imagine these would all proceed well with no hiccups.

Just wanted to add my 2c.

I've had the opportunity to work with Rensuya quite a bit recently, with both Peaches N Cream and KAT Atlantis.
I can attest that he treats each of his projects with the same high level of care and detail, and really does work on these sets for an inordinate amount of time.
The number of revisions and changes he goes through to bring a set to IC is actually quite a lot, from what I've seen - and he really wants all of his sets to succeed, and has shown to be receptive to feedback in the past.
While his ICs are quite fleshed out, he has listened to community feedback and made changes - his ICs are "true ICs" in the sense that things aren't quite finalized when they are posted. KAT Goddess was once PBT Goddess, kitting, accent colors, etc. have all changed based on community feedback.

All of this is to say - yes, there is 1 currently running group buy and 4 ICs that Rensuya has posted. (Both Terra and Peaches n Cream have passed the GB phase and at this point, I consider them more in vendor hands than designer hands - though designers certainly still contribute, the ask on time is much less at this point). But I haven't seen any drop in quality despite the volume and if you have, I'd love to have a discussion about that. From my perspective, he's done a great job of handling his pipeline thus far and the quality of content I've seen also doesn't look like someone who is spreading themselves too thin.

I'd also like to state that just because a set ICs does not guarantee that it will ever run, and I also don't see how posting an IC is "claiming" a certain colorway or theme. One doesn't have to look any further than this month to see that similar sets can all find success in today's environment. GMK Lunar, GMK Apollo, and GMK Ashes all share some attributes, and are all different, and are all doing great. GMK Forge is running when the "GMK Forge" moniker was previously ICed as a completely different set (which did not succeed in GB).

Any chance of having the red desk mat without so many characters and especially not over the dragons tail.
Having the characters over the tail spoils it.

As a continuation of the "element series", there is a disconnection "IMHO" from the previous ones.
The famous duo (Mizu & Terra) feels happy, this one feels a bit serious / sad :( it could be much more igneous.




But as a separate idea, this set looks cool :)

Such an ironic piece.
In Chinese, if you're referring to Dragon of the West, it's the one with the wings. And here, we see a traditional Chinese dragon with a 「西方龍」, lol

And I'm not trying to be cynical or what. But the word 「西方龍」 isn't a type of word/description we, Chinese would use in our culture to describe dragon.

This is some poor attempt of a foreigner trying to use random Chinese characters to make up some kind of meaning in order to fit the theme just like lots of foreigners using weird Chinese words as their tattoos.

It's possible!

Why does it say "western dragon" in Chinese? It does not make sense in so many different ways..
This was intentional but I should have checked into this more beforehand. Western dragon is a tribute for Iroh.

will we see a Rama cap eventually?
Yes

The name and story totally not make sense.... :confused:

“Loong” = Oriental Dragon = 東方龍
“Dragon” = Western Dragon = 西方龍
Same as above this was intentional but I'm looking into correcting it!

Yeah so much this. If it’s in Japanese or some other language that I don’t understand it won’t bother me at all but 西方龍 just makes no sense on many levels..
I am working with someone who speaks Chinese to convey the meaning 'Dragon of the West' but actually makes sense in the language

Any chance you'll be using CR or N9?
No GMK stock colors were used. These are all custom, the alphas are a very dark grey.

Why is the 40s kit so barebones compared to mizu's? No minivan compat?
This was to help bring the cost down while still offering a good amount of basic compatibility. The base has "out" and "read" to help the micro kit cover basic ortho and 40s layouts.

Please add Minivan compat. There are over 2,000 Minivans in our hands with more on the way from TKC.

Will the dark ashy gray alphas be the same gray used by GMK Red Samurai, GMK First Love, and GMK Hero?
No, the dark grey alphas are a custom color just like all of the other colors in the set.

Love the set. I joined both Mizu and Terra, and can't wait to see how this turns out. Would love some more Iroh/ Roku vibes though. Maybe a lightning cap that could work as Rshift/ Enter?

Still thinking if the deskmat is a bit too much for me...Any chance for a design which doesn't include a huge dragon on it? :)

If you are going to do some more renders, please consider Iron 165's plum version for one. Interested to see how these two could match together with the base kit and a couple of accents :thumb:

Hey Ren. This is a long shot but here goes. Would you consider using the Zhuyin/ Alt Alphas in the main kit if the demand was there? I have been growing fond of one base color for mods and alphas. The aesthetic is just 👌.

Definitely a fan of this, has a black mods add-on kit been considered at all?

Absolutely love this set. Would like to see more novelties (I think a fireball of some sort would be cool) and preferably an expanded micro kit to support minivans if possible.

Zhuyin alphas would be a must for me with this set. I wish the red on red was the default colorway in the base kit.

The word '西方龍' is not accurate and not match with the actual concept as others has suggested, but happy to see the OP is going to adjust it.
Apart from that everything i s perfect for me and I just want the GB run asap :D

Will you consider adding modifiers kit that provide same background colors as the alphas?

He mentioned somewhere on Reddit that he went with "西方龍" to represent the "Dragon of the West", which is the title given to Iroh in the show. I think that inclusion is a really nice touch.

I think that's what they meant. Like an all-black base with red legends. Also, shameless plug:

Hey Ren. This is a long shot but here goes. Would you consider using the Zhuyin/ Alt Alphas in the main kit if the demand was there? I have been growing fond of one base color for mods and alphas. The aesthetic is just 👌.

If enough people vote for dark grey mods kit then it would be possible. If enough express interest here then I will make a poll for them and if that gets enough votes then it could happen.

I'd like to see a poll primarily for colors, regardless of legends. Based on what I've witnessed here, on Top Clack and in various Discords, I suspect all red-on-red or all red-on-gray might be very popular options, perhaps even more so than the current base colorway.

zhuyin alt is fantastic for offering both sublegends and mod colors. i wouldn't change a thing but a poll would definitely tell what people want. but i think the set would lose charm if it gets boiled down to all red on black.

Firstly, I love the set.

Nonetheless, I would like to make a few comments. IMO, the alphas should be the same color as the mods. I feel the black/dark gray clashes with the rest of the set. Moreover, I believe the Zhuyin set should replace the base alphas. The whole theme of this keyboard and with how deep you've dived into the Avatar lore with it, I think it would make sense and people will not mind the Japanese sub legends.

The novelties are amazing. IDK what else to say. The White Lotus tile, the dragon enter key (for Iroh, the Dragon of the West), the tea pot, the Avatar Aang face, the Prince Zuko face, the Blue Spirit mask, it is all literal perfection. I am assuming a RAMA cap is also going to be offered with this set. I cannot wait to see it.

I also want to comment about the deskpad. The design is beautiful, great work. However, specifically speaking about the red dragon deskpad, I will mention that the text over the dragon's tail is not appealing and ruins the aesthetic. Consider changing the text, preferably to match the other deskpad, the golden dragon deskpad, text on the bottom right of the deskpad.

Ultimately, I am going to be buying this set. OFC, I would hope that the suggestions I made become a reality, but nonetheless.
