    interesting, would love to see some deskmats to go along with this.  also though, not a fan of the legend color on the accent. also worried about so many colors, I think you may be able to axe a few

    If you haven't already, be sure to drop by the Keycap Designers' Server to hash out kitting and such.  You've currently got some redundancy, like having UK alphas both in base and in a NorDeUK kit.  There are several options for this, but I wouldn't recommend what you currently have set up.

    Honestly, I do like what you have so far and am definitely interested cw-wise.

    Kitting-wise, it's a tad obvious the kits are from the KRK renders, but those can be worked on with some time.

    My main concern right now is the quantity of colors. Based on the ones you used, I don't think any besides MAYBE Magnolia can find a stock equivalent.

    The issue is that GMK wants custom colors to be used throughout the set and would also prefer fewer custom colors. Due to that, your additional of orange only being on the accents and the yellow only as legends for the modifiers, may contribute to a super expensive set. I would say to either:

    1. Make compromises and remove the yellow and orange. Use the dark blue on the alphas for the accent as well, and either the pink or the colors on the alphas on the mods. That way you remove both orange and yellow and cut down custom colors used.

    2. Consider a different manufacturer to avoid a $150 base kit of some sort.

    Anyways, GLWIC and I'll be looking out!  :thumb:

    Definitely, I'm still considering the kitting.

    Hey there, thanks for the advice. I'm a real newbie at this. Will definitely consider reducing the custom colors and reworking the KRK renders :)

    Very interesting muted colours. I like.

    Just a clarification - the alphas look like they have a blue tinge in the tenders (especially on a board), but they are actually light grey?

    nice work!!Morandi color is my love.while,it seems like mix and match gmk shoko with gmk mr.sleeves. So why not add some novelties  to prominent the theme?I am not an icon mod fan, your rendering is also a text+icon mod design, so why not use icon+text mods in the base? icon mod can be an alternative kits.

    Hey! thanks for dropping by, the alphas are a slight shade of grey. It's probably the lighting. I'll try to do more renders to show the difference. There are some more in the link in the post if you haven't seen them ^^.  :D

    smells like champagne but also smells like a construction site because there is work that needs to be done

    Whatever kitting you replicated, it's not a good example. You should take the time to learn which keys have to be which colour, how to support ISO in a way that makes it useful, and you also need a way to amend kitting and colours without responses. Six colours is a lot for GMK already, making them custom will not help costs. Being open to Hiragana and Hangul kits that don't match the theme and not even attempting a spacebar kit shows a certain level of understanding.

    but it's gmk so what does any of this matter

    Is it possible to build the hiragana alphas into the base kit?

    Iím thinking itís more cost effective if we also want the peach hiragana keys.

    Latin alphas can be a separate kit.

    The color-way for these keycaps would fit so well with the Geist GE coming up. Novelties look really clean too!
    It would be really nice to match it with the Geist! its my endgame keeb  :D. thanks for the feedback.

    I wanted to commend you on taking critical feedback well!
    This set's colorway is really well balanced. It is playful / tasteful.
    Best of luck on this IC!
    I like how you dropped by to say hi!  :)
    Just hoping to make this IC into a GB and a keyset that everyone likes. Thanks! Hope you have filled in the IC form.
