Looks great! First keycap GB I'm really considering.

I think the novelties could be better though, the difference in the stroke sizes make it seem a little off for me.

 Noted on this one, Brother! Thanks for the awesome feedback!

Set looks amazing - love the unique vibe the colors give off, and appreciate adding the brown novelties. Are the brown novelties going to be a separate kit? Also is there a reason why some of the graphics (e.g. "Create") aren't on the brown novelties?

On the subject I'm actually also wondering why there are so many light/tan novelties when there aren't any light/tan mods in the kit. The only situation when I can see someone using the tan novelties are with the base+oxidane kit (dark keys with light accents) - and even then they're probably only going to be using the Esc & Enter keys as accents and not the other R2 & R4 mods. Otherwise if they just have the base kit, having only some of the mods in the alpha color looks a bit weird. If you can only do 2 colors in the novelty kits then I would recommend the blue and brown since those are your primary mod and accent colors; or maybe keep the blue novelties as-is, and scale back the tan & brown novelties to just include the Esc/R1 and Enter keys, since those are mainly going to be used as accents anyways.

Anyways just some thoughts to consider.. don't mean to sound overly critical or anything but just want to see this set succeed since this is one of the first sets where I'm actually interested in potentially getting the novelties as well; but the way the kitting is looking right now I'm not 100% sure.

Wow! Thank you so much for your wonderful creative art critic! For the brown novelties, yes, this is a separate kit. I'm currently working on the Novelties side, people from my IC suggested it for me. I'm taking a consider of your suggestions, I'm also planning the same regarding on blue and brown novelties. It's okay! Thank you for the feedback, brother! I appreciate it a lot.  :thumb:

Please take another look at the novelties. In my opinion they aren't properly thought through.
For example: there are no Human/Skintone modifiers anywhere else to be found, so why are there novelty mods in that color? Wouldn't they look "off" when used with all the Water colored mods? Might be okayish with the Oxidane alphas, but not sure about that. Might need some renders.
Maybe take another look at the novelties and where they would actually be used/placed. Enter/Esc as different colored accents are absolutely fine and kind of the norm. But just random different colored mods (especially in just the bottom row) are somewhat noisy in my opinion.

If it where up to me, I'd throw out the Human colored mods from the novelties and replace them with Earth. And please, give us the Earth create-enter.
In the current state they are in, I will most likely skip the novelties.

I agree, the novelties look off and don't contain the message of human and nature. Apart from that, I also propose drop the novelties in creamy colors since that is alpha color and merge the brown ones with the green-ish ones.

Thank you so much for your creative critics! I'm currently working on my novelties right now. I'll be merging the brown (Earth) and blue (Oxidane) into one novelty kit.  :thumb:

Thanks for the fast action. Also, you have any more plans for the base kit? After consulting many sets I see the pattern that a lot of them include accent arrow keys in base. I know this will increase the price but can you provide some renders of the same 65% keyboard with accent arrows? So people can decide if they want them in base or not since they don't exist for now.

I am not much of a artsy person so I will admit I personally don't really see the symbolism and message behind this picture and the whole concept behind this set.
Which means the novelties are not for me, I would have prefered something more simple.

But the colors of this set sure are beautiful enough to make me want the base set.
