[IC] GMK Watermelon
« on: Sun, 12 July 2020, 13:58:11 »

    GMK Watermelon



    The Set

    It's summertime! Who doesn't love sitting down, getting a nice sunburn, and enjoying some refreshing watermelon? This set is inspired by my favorite summer snack.


    This set uses WS1 as the alpha color, and two custom RAL colors to capture my interpretation of a delicious watermelon.



    Kits

    GMK Watermelon will have 3 kits, Base kit providing basic ISO coverage, as well as numpad coverage, a cute novelties kit, and a basic spacebar kit.



    Base Kit


    Spacebar Kit


    Novelties

    Designed by the one and only Sour, we've decided to keep the designs simple, and throw in some half-eaten slices for all the hungry folks out there!




    Renders

    Nirvana, by myself and Chad




    J-02, By Jae





    Iron165 by Smith+Rune <3

    IMO the beige doesn't fit the watermelon theme and there's too way much beige for a watermelon-themed set. Maybe replace that with a light green?

    Would be nice to have a deskmat with a design like the background of the novelties render. White main color with a single melon

    Looking pretty good so far, definitely let's my mouth get a little bit watery :D
    The only thing I'd still love to see change, is either a new, or another deskmat, with a more watermelony look to it (not just the colours).
    But otherwise besides that, I'd say I'm already pretty happy wit it as of rn :thumb:

    I enjoy this colorway a lot.
    And for me, the kind of "dull" and rather "muted" colorway is perfect. I like it when its not TOO bright like other "summer-y" themed type of keysets.

    Just one small thing: The "triangular" slice of the watermelon novelty looks like a slice of pizza to me.
    Maybe you should change that to a "whole" watermelon. Like a circle with some texture to it. Would fit perfectly on 1u caps, too.

    GLWIC!

    Right when I say "no more GMK" this brings me back in...

    Another request for UK ISO, I'll also add a request for a 1.25u space in the spacebars kit for the standard 2.25 - 1.25 - 2.75 split space.

    Whilst I love the kit as-is I'd love to see maybe some bright green accents as well? I always think of watermelons as having 3 colours.

    You really nailed the colors on this! The novelties look super fitting too. I'm interested

    Ooh I really like this one!!! I was thinking about designing a watermelon themed keycap set myself but now that you did it maybe I donít have to anymore! Haha I only wish there was an alternate alpha colorway you could add that would be pink with white letters. I will buy this set if it comes out!

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm going to explore more novelty options that look less like pizza. Lots of potential with that kit. Updates coming soon :)

    The J-02 render looks unfairly cool.

    tbh this should be called inverse watermelon because you got the color that's the most present inside the melon the least in the set. alphas should be red imo  :thumb:

    Trueee. You could always just swap out the alphas with, say, GMK Classic Red though.

    I agree, it would be more interesting with the accent color on alphas, and have accents being white instead. In any case a good looking set. Would just like it more if it was 'more' watermelon-y  :)
