[IC] GMK Lasaka
« on: Sun, 07 June 2020, 21:58:41 »
Hi guys!

I've not really been active as a creator, but here today I present you with my first key set that I hope to get in production. I call it Lasaka. Lasaka is a combination of the words Laser and Osaka. I took inspiration for this key set from the two key sets which make this name. GMK Laser was such an amazing set, and I had a lot of inspiration from that, but the main thing this evolved from was my original set, Osaka, which didn't pass an IC back in May of last year. I've put a lot of time and effort into perfecting the colourway, and I hope that with all your help and support we can get this key set launched next year! I would love to hear back from you guys on what you think about the colours and your general feedback on the set.

P.S. For you weebs out there, I am thinking about adding Japanese subs to this set, but wanted to get some feedback first before I did that. Might do a similar thing to GMK Laser and have a separate kit for that. Let me know if you guys want something like that, and also don't forget to let me know what other kits y'all might be interested in.

Allons~y

After some deliberation and feedback, I think we are going to go ahead with cream coloured legends. More feedback is welcome and appreciated!

HIGH QUALITY RENDERS ARE ON THE WAY!

Itís like a brighter or purplier? GMK Rouge. I find myself enjoying these types of colors. Cream legend color would be dope in this color now that I think about it.

But seriously whatís up with all these IC? Lol were these all quarantine projects? Did the water change to something else?

Nah, not a quarantine project lol. Been sitting on this one for a long time. Since around the time that I launched the original Osaka IC last year. I just had time now and have really been getting back into the keyboard scene a bit more.

Also, I see what you mean about the resemblance to Rouge, but I think this set is definitely unique. It has accented mods and the colourway is just different in general. Honestly at the end of the day, there are only so many different colours you can combine and still keep it that different. I'm satisfied with the way it looks, but if you have any suggestions I'm open to them! :) Glad to know you enjoy the set though!

I definitely donít mean it in a negative I love purple. I just find myself feeling iffy on the legend color it feels off at least for me. Maybe a different color that wasnít in the same vein as purple or pink would be cool but Iím not a designer so I canít really imagine what would be nice.

Here's just a quick render of the base kit with cream legends to see if anyone prefers this.

Definitely open to a 40s kit. I had a friend asking about space bars for his Alice for this set so I'm sure he would be delighted to hear that more people are interested in a 40s kit. Hoping to god it hits MOQ if this passes IC!

How do you expect this to pass IC, if you can't scrounge up money for renders? Should've saved some of your lunch money.

again...


ngl I like those colors. The idea is good and this can definitely be a nice set.

But this is way too early of an idea for an IC. Creating an IC should be the _last_ step for a keycap design.

If you just want to check if people like your idea then it's better to just post it in some keyboard Discords (there even are special Discords just for keycap design with people that can help you with renders).

With a low effort IC like this with only one half decent render (that is now even in the wrong colors) the first impression is very low even though the idea might be good. And the first impression is what counts for things like this.

Very interested- but this IC is really half baked.

I like the colors, and possibly the Japanese sub legends.
Color codes or some sample LEGO bricks would be a good start

IMHO, this is a tough colorway - the shades and contrasts have to be spot on.
Otherwise this might go the way of GMK phantom, Necro, 8008 etc.
If you can order color samples, and share those, my interest will increase by a lot, since Iíd be taking less of a chance.

Your IC is not going to go anywhere if you're not willing to invest even a little (renders cost as little as $10 a render) into your idea or design.

Loved the colors when this was Mulberry (never mind that was some other purple set w render issues)

No business-and that's who you're after here-is gonna spend their opportunity cost when the designer can't spend render money. If you'd come in good kitting and nov design...I like the colors enough Id spend my own money to get renders in exchange for a cut. But 6u, 2u shift, and stepped caps in base...has happened before, but not at low MOQ and if you wanna see how expensive base kit GB's go, check out GMK Matcha Mocha's GB. 3 custom colors and this kit is probably 160 with a good cut from a vendor.

When you've got modern kits and renders, come back. Not until then.

"Most of us dont have any savings left after the last few months of being out of a job lmao." Fix that first.
