[IC] GMK Skyline - IC Form added
« on: Wed, 08 April 2020, 18:40:11 »
Introducing GMK Skyline



239622-0


Where the idea came from:

Last year I was browsing reddit and stumbled on an amazing picture that inspired the colors and theme of this set. The image below has been my background since that day (July 12th, 2019).

Soon after I realized it would go great with an idea I was throwing around at the time for a colorway and asked the artist if I could use the picture, and they were glad to let me do so. Been waiting a while to release this but finally the day has come!


Theme:

Cars, More specifically Skylines, hence the name.

I plan on doing wheels, turbos, other car parts for the novelties.

I might try and get this art on a deskmat but need to ask permission to use it for actual merchandise first.

239620-1

Thank you u/RaY29rus for this amazing picture and the permission to use it!


Kits:


Edit: Before anyone asks, these are old kit renders and they have changed since these were made. I will be using the same kits as GMK Nightshade.

Base Model:
240236-2


Bolt-On's:
239616-3


Because Racecar:

note: old mod color in render, refer to base for current color. Getting these remade but not updated atm.
239618-4


Auto Salon:

Have ideas in my head, if you look at the pic you can see some of them.

For sure want a turbo compressor housing, wheels, possibly headlights/tail lights (for bottom row to wrap around spacebar) and other ideas I am kicking around.


JDM:

240238-5


Board Renders:

Renders to come trying to get updated GMK Nightshade renders done first and there is a backlog atm.


Colors:

Same Alpha base color as Night Runner and mod color as Nightshade


Additional Info:



IC Form:

Please fill this out if you would like to give feedback and register your interest so I know if this set is worth running!

RaY29rus over on reddit for creating this image and being nice enough to let me use it for this when I asked, sorry it took so damn long to get this out.

Is there going to be full support for... right-side and left-side driving in the kits?



(don't tell me you don't know what I mean)

I have thought of 3 different routes this could go...

1) ISO kit, least likely.
2) Hiragana legends (mono or sub).
3) Right side legends instead of left like normal GMK.

Not sure which is more accurate but my guess is 2?

2 would really just be saturated alter.

40s kit seems bloated having full accent keys for r3 and both escapes, plus the numpad keys.

An alternative would be "N2O". I also checked if the NOS was still a registered trademark but its registration is still current.

Also, any chance we can get a right sided mono hiragana kit?
That would be an insta-cop for me, though i'll settle for a mono hiragana kit.

I don't have an N9 set but it is much darker, just not as black as CR.

old logo novelty will be huge. same for the LMGT1 novelty.

I like cars. I like keyboards. I see no problem with this. Not a huge fan of the colors, but hey maybe I should stop thinking so monochrome.

e: need them weeb legends tho, it's sorta applicable.

I'll be buying this for sure, but its hard for me to tell if the legends are more of a red or pink... Have you posted color codes anywhere?

Given the theme, I'd assume red, but as a Subaru guy, my brain can't see it as anything other than Cherry Blossom Red. https://www.grimmspeed.com/grimmspeed-cherry-blossom-paint/

Working on novelties, unfortunately some of the suggestions are for logos that would require contacting companies to use and I would rather not have to deal with that even if they would be awesome to have.

Designs are done, just working out kitting atm so will update again when that is done.

Any chance for a dark gray mods kit? I don't like the blue, but really dig that red with the dark gray, and I think this set would look great in a uniform gray/red variant.

Edit: Also, maybe the blue in the kits is a tad off? In the inspiration pic it looks distinctly blue, whereas in the kits it has a more purplish hue. Of course, this may be intended, but I think it would look better with the mods more on the bluish side.

I don't think I would add a 426 C mods kit as I don't see it being successful enough at all.

As for the blue for the mods, I am changing that actually to a slightly different one but haven't exactly nailed it down yet.

Possibly, but I think you'd be surprised. Alternative color mod/alpha kits have been doing quite well lately. I don't think you have anything to lose if you add it to the IC and gauge interest at least.

As I said, the red this set uses is very nice and modern. If I were looking to get a red-on-gray/black set, I'd rather go for the colors you have here than, say, GMK Red Dragon (with alt mods) or GMK Slasher.

As for the blue for the mods, I am changing that actually to a slightly different one but haven't exactly nailed it down yet.


Sub legends, No. Hiragana Mono legends, Yes. I would rather not have subs honestly, it makes it too crowded and I think mono legends would make it better imo.
If you add a hiragana monolegends kit, please do it how Oni and Shoko did it. Namely, these keys are important.

You have my interest good sir. How about some extra keys for ISO layouts?

I do understand it's based on the art, but the colorway makes me think that its missing out on not referencing Midnight Purple, the unique color that belongs only to the Skyline GT-R family.

Also sad to see no novelties.
Some ideas:

Single - "S" emblem found on 32 hood (bonnet), side "GT" emblems found on fenders
Spacebar - GT-R logo in the middle, 33, 34 grill style
Shift - GT-R Tail lights, "V-spec"
Numpad - Shift-knob style

^this. This Set needs to happen and it needs novelties. Some of these suggestions are really nice.

Any update on these novelties?  I am excited to see them.  It's probably going to be a two set for me as I purchase one for myself and another for a friend who owns a 1992 GTR.  I love the colorway of this set!

Has the blue color been updated? I think the one in the first render is slightly different from the original one, but it also looks more purple, and I was hoping that the final color would be more bluish (like in the inspiration image). :/

The first kit image was updated but not the others. Sorry just been really busy with things and so has the guy who did the renders and haven't gotten around to updating this fully. Focusing more on nightshade first.

That's fine and totally understandable, just please choose a more bluish instead of purplish color for this set's mods once you have more time to dedicate to it.

I personally like the more purple/less blue/gray color on the accents.
I feel like there is quite a spectrum to choose from based on midnight purple

I love the color!
for the novalties, personally i think a fading color would work great with the theme, but I don't know if it's possible to put a fading color on keycaps...(im a newbie)
something like this, but i really like the bottom roll

Filled out the IC, but figured I'd mention it here too. It'd be interesting to see a pair of novelties with the iconic circular taillights of the Skyline. Maybe even do the R34 so it's not too symmetrical. Driver side on one cap and passenger side on the other cap, and it could bookend our top row or something like that

You say this like you knew what the novelties were in the first place...

I will share one day but having to get them redone for a specific reason to be announced at a later date.

Was thinking this same thought. Could also use red keycaps for A, D, K, and ; to represent the tails.

First post. Love this color way. Sorry if this is disrespectful or rude, but is there any way for this to be in a different profile (MT3 or maybe SA? I haven't tried any profiles, but those look awesome and sound awesome. I have heard somewhere that MT3 is an exclusive profile owned by Drop (formally Massdrop). I understand that GMK is very high quality, so I wouldn't be mad, I'd just be happier ;)

It will run just hasn't because I haven't been able to get nightshade off the ground due to GMK not quoting it for months on end. And that is why I haven't updated with more info cause I don't want someone taking the set and making it (night runner already has a chinese fake now...)

I promise I will run this just may be a little bit longer than initially due to 2020 delaying so much.

I prefer the R33, I know I am weird but tis my preference lol.

Personally, the r33 front looks ugly to me looks too similar to an evo or an old wrx, I love the r32 and r34 but the r35 is meh. The supra is dope too.
