Welcome to the IC for the set dedicated to everyone’s favorite trash-loving animals: GMK Trash Friends! Featuring Trash Pandas (Raccoons), Dumpster Cats (Opossums), and Tree Rats (Squirrels), this set aims to boop!




RENDERS:


On Smith + Rune IRON165 FE in E-White




On Smith + Rune IRON180 in Graphite





COLORS:


The set was pretty much inspired by the picture below, so I literally went in and eyedropper-ed the areas of color indicated, and found the closest RAL colors I could to them. Yes, I spent significant time looking for the best snoot color. Livin' my best life over here.


Image is of Sprout! https://www.instagram.com/p/BUpUld-FLjD/?taken-by=sprout.the.possum



But yeah. OK, let’s get it out of the way: this set is neither Olivia nor Cafe. Please refer to the comparison swatches below!






GIVING BACK:

If you’ve seen my other sets (GMK Fox, IFK Allfather, IFK Freyja), you know one of the things I want to accomplish is donating to various charities. Normally I would like to do more of a local charity (think globally, act locally) because I think the money goes further for them. But in order to generate more interest and maybe even some direct donations (or even adopt a honey badger??) from everyone and not just US-based folks, I’m proposing an international charity for this: World Wildlife Fund.
See here for more info: https://www.worldwildlife.org/




FEEDBACK FORM:

https://forms.gle/mLjab59sCzxmC1Vm6




KITS:




*note about Trash Panda 1u novelty: The 3 color flower crown version will come down to production method and pricing (being quoted now). If it will not look consistent with the other keys or will make the novelty kit too expensive, the 2 color non flower crown will be the backup option.






DESK MATS:


Trash Panda Portrait


Dumpster Cat Portrait


Tree Rat Portrait


<3!


Sign Language Pattern
*please note that image compression is a little wonky and making some of the lines appear jagged and wavy.

As to the feasibility of the tricolor novelty, that could be doubleshot with a white legend with the flowers UV/pad printed after. Downside is that it adds a color of plastic to your novelties kit; you might be able to do the whole key in UV instead.

I was still feeling so badly that Fox didn't have the jumping fox novelty I wanted to do (at least for THIS round!) so at least ISO got a jumping Tree Rat haha

With Fox having just wrapped up GB last month, and this being your third keycap IC this month this week holy crap, you may want to consider pacing so that you don't burn out or become overloaded

Aw that's really nice of you - I appreciate the concern. I'm spacing all of the GBs out so I don't have anything running concurrently. Just trying to get my concepts out there, since I've had issues of putting in a ton of work on a set and then go to check ICs and it turns out that someone else did something too similar for me to move forward with it. Trying to avoid having that happen again.
Timing just so happened that although I've been working on all of the 3 sets I have in IC for quite a while, things started moving forward for them at the same time. I have a few more ICs I'll have ready for this year, at least 1. But I'm definitely pacing myself! :)

You need a 1u spacebar for proper 3-1-3 split 7u support. Also a 1.25u bar would be nice. The pink arrows in the novelties render looks pretty wonky too. Along with that Iso support seems a bit “everywhere” and there are too many deskmats imo. Either way glwic and thank you for always supporting a good cause!

Kitting is a bit everywhere.

Iso needs to be redone, B and F13 in base please
Also consider adding 2.25u and 2u shifts in base, those are pretty crucial
You need a 1u bar for 3,1,3
Also no 1.25u, off center 6 or centered 6u bars. Although off-center is really needed, consider 1.25 and 6 centered for sure though.
Also consider 3 key 40s and a single r2 accent nov for accenting 40 percents

Otherwise GLWIC

Okay I ****ing love those deskmats

And I love raccoons and opossums. Opossums are such misunderstood animals. They don't have rabies, and they eat pests. And they're so cute. They just look a bit quirky. There's lots to love.

The set itself looks alright, but those deskmats are banger.

I love the colors and the theme.
The kitting needs a touch more work though, extra B and maybe an f13 on the base. And the spacebar kit isn't really complete. (basically I second most of the things other people previously said about the kitting)

LOL I know it prob comes across that way. but not all of the desk mats will be made, just trying to get a feel for which people like so i can whittle it down. Also, I'm obsessed with drawing animals so any excuse to sit with my ipad watching British baking and making fuzzies with flower crowns... i'm gonna take it! hahaha

Aw thanks! I love raccoons and opossums as well. Everyone thinks opossums are sabertooth death mouse but really they're just scared and sweet. If you've ever seen them eat fruit... my goodness that is just wholesome cuteness.

The kitting is very inclusive to both ansi and iso users. The iso compatibility in the kit already covered both us and uk iso. There is only one redundant key that is R4 "~#". I would love to see novelties which can cover the nav column of 65/75s layouts. Also 4 ansi enter novelties are not necessary either, please consider changing them to the left shift key which has the same size but in different row.
