Iinko, I still have Pantone extras if you need help finding brown.

Not sure how the gray legends on deep red keys will end up being, they are a bit hard to see in renders, and don't mesh well imo. Nice IC though.

Thanks for the comments Chippy and I totally expected this to be a concern, as I mentioned briefly above in the kits section this was an intended choice, to give the effect I wanted, I have added a question to the IC feedback form for specific required feedback around this. I just want to add that during creation of this, I did try lighter legends on this accent keys and it just seemed to pull me out of the look I wanted. They lost that look of overhead leaves or even blood splatter. The dark legends blending in keep the keys dark and maintain that effect, this may not be for all but I want to get a sense of how concerning that is for people

Thanks all

I get that and understand what you are feeling, but I am not a fan either of the gray legends on the red. Love the red, but I'd like to see that white you are using put to the legends on the red caps.

Yep I tried, lol and the feedback is clear and I am warming to the lighter legends with some quick renders I did, so working at getting new renders with the mod coloured alphas

I thank everyone who provided feedback that this doesnt lose the intent as much as I worried, but will give a much better pop to those keys. Really appreciate the feedback!!

Stay tuned for updates

To each their own for sure, I think the red gives just the right amount of pop to go with the more subdued colours, also gives  a feeling of maybe you had just been in battle, covered in mud blood soaked ground and the red leaves falling around you
This set is very pleasing on the eyes. I absolutely want it. :)
Thanks expect a lot more to come

Thats cool the non accent colours are very clean, and maybe the red grows on you, you never know!

Thanks I am actually with you, I tend to stay away from them, but when the idea for this hit me this dark red was perfect imo.

You can certainly add it to the form, if the support was there i would look into it

Expect official collab caps to be shared from AtoWorks very soon!

Your base kit has 4 ansi enter keys. It's kinda excessive. Unpopular opinion: bring the novelty to the left shift key cuz it has the same size, so there will be 2 shift keys (normal + novelty) and only 2 normal ansi enter keys left (mod + accent). Also, can we have some japanese on iso enter too? just need replace the accent one.

Thanks for the input, I really like this suggestion, and I agree I hate the redundancy of the extra enters, curious if others feel the same as you, please let me know!!

Some updates to share,

Luxe Cables is on board for the cable collab, so cannot wait to see what he comes up with!!

Also Ato Works has shared some renders of his collab caps for Shiryo that look amazing!!! And then out of nowhere came up with an amazing deskmat, that fits the theme perfectly, expect some renders on that deskmat in the coming weeks!!

Similar to Red Alert in layout colouration but I do like the tone of both the alphas and the mods.  Interested even though I have dozens of similar sets.
