I see on your colors sheet that you have labeled WS2 as #FFFFFF. Considering that this is a nearly impossible color to achieve on plastic as it is legitimately pure white, there is no way that this is the representative hex for WS2. Having spoken with GMK about this, #F6F5F5 is more representative of WS2. If you used #FFFFFF for your renders, your renders may not be great representations of the color in person.

RGB color codes are never representative of a plastic color because it always change with the lighting on the picture.
Especially for white plastic.

Thanks for pointing it out. That's a placeholder that slipped through.
Renders are done the right way, looking at Stormtrooper / Monochrome whilst.
I will correct the HEX, thanks again.

But please be aware, that HEX / RGB codes are never representative of a plastic color.

Love the set! Is there any plans for more kits, for instance ergo/ortho? I would really love to get the option to use this with my Corne. If there are no more sets coming, is it inadvisable to use R1 and R4 on R2 and R3 (since there are no orange 1u accent keys).I have never used a sculpted set before, and would like to know how big of a tradeoff it is. Nonetheless, GLWGB!

40s / Ergo / Ortho is extremely difficult to run with this set, because of the split colors.
That rightaway means you can not reuse a lot of keys from the base kit for 40s.
For example, you would have to have an extra 1.75u and 1.25u Shifts just for the alternate colors.
I just don't think that is feasible to run, so I opted against it.
And yes, I would  not advise using keys from different rows in different rows.

Just a quick heads up:

After today's events, revolving around the allegations made against MUBAI / enoch_xu, effective immidiate this collaboration will not happen.
He is said to be the middle man for some dumb dumb chinese "makers"  who are cloning many maker's honest work and said to be in a very close 1:1 quality.
Some of the 'works' include CYSM, Artkey Universe, Brocaps, Alpha Keycaps etc.

I, myself, am a artisan collector. Faking, buying, selling and trafficking fake artisans is not cool!
Please buy and trade responsibly!

This set looks really good, I just hope Valve won't send you a C&D
