[IC] GMK Moonlight Updated 02/02/21
« on: Wed, 17 June 2020, 15:21:28 »



GMK Moonlight
---------------------------------------------------------------

The inspiration for this set came from my love for the great outdoors, specifically the ambience from the moon. This set uses a dark blue-grey to represent the cool color of the night, and a beige-gold to signify the yellow hue the moon gives off on a night in the wilderness.

The novelties have been catered to create a visual representation of the outdoors, with rocky mountains, toasty campfires, as well as camping!

I have worked with Walker to revamp this IC, as well as redo the novelties and finetune details including colors and deskmats. I hope everyone can appreciate these changes!

Colors



This set uses a RAL Classic and RAL Design color, one of which has already been color matched (RAL 1002, GMK Rudy Accent).

Proposed Kits
---------------------------------------------------------------
GMK Moonlight has 4 kits, a base kit with full coverage, an alternate alpha kit, a novelty kit and a spacebar kit.

Base Kit

Novelty Kit

Spacebar Kit





Renders

penumbra.

The alphas are darker than Penumbra, not to mention it has navy icon mods with consistent legends (not multicolored). Even if it did match, Penumbra ran in March 2017.

Really like the subtle colors here Fox, can't wait for more news.

Cute and nice set, very cozy colors and novelties. Any possibility of adding a Tab to the Midnight Kit so Base+Midnight could cover two boards?

I realized that I used an older render of the base kit with some repeated keys and whatnot. Updating it now to be accurate. Sorry!

Looks like like a simplified Penumbra. The colors look good and the novelties are great! I like the look but itís not for me personally. Keep up the good work and I hope this IC goes well!

Very interesting colors. The renders on the 165 makes me think of a giant moon right in the middle. The novelties look really good too, I may have to at least grab the novelties.

I really like this set! Novelties in particular. I just feel that maybe the yellow color is a tad too saturated for a moonlight but thatís just my opinion. All in anyways!

there's another group you could make happy here, and it's the 5 or 8 of us who buy the 40s kits because it's the kit where the cool split space bar colors are, and I really want dark blue split bars.

A few things that are missing from the base kit:
  • Mod-colored R2 1.5u \|.
  • R3 PgUp, R4 PgDn for 65%/75% layouts.
  • A R3 ISO key. I recommend using R3 \| and R4 <> (see here and here). Both of these keys should be alpha-colored, so the current mod-colored R4 \| has to go either way.
  • Barred homing numpad 5 (assuming the existing one is scooped).
  • Optionally, 2u Shift and F13.

Other remarks:
  • Scooped F and J should be alpha-colored.
  • 1.75u is not a useful spacebar key. Especially not if there's no 40% support elsewhere in the set. Please remove it.
  • Instead, you can add a 1.25u space, which is useful for split 6.25u (2.75+1.25+2.25) and Alice layouts.

The colours looks very nice and harmonizing to me :thumb:
The only thing that comes if as a but odd to me, are the your scooped keys, which usually should have the same colour as your alpha keys. (But I'm pretty sure it wasn't on purpose anyways)
Good luck with the set moving forward :)

It is actually a faded navy color, not black, but will still look great!
