[IC] WSPBT Senkou | 28 May - colour samples
« on: Thu, 06 April 2023, 15:52:10 »


WS Senkou

This set is inspired by Asuna. I have always been motivated by her courage and resolve. For a longer rant, feel free to read my previous post.

New IC Form

If you have filled out the previous IC form, I shall be grateful if you could take a moment to fill out the new IC form as well!



Foreword

WS Senkou is an overhaul of PBT “The Flash”. I have received quite a lot of feedback after posting the initial IC, and have since made a lot of changes to the design. As the set is essentially completely overhauled, I believe it would be adequate to start a new IC post.

Why WS/dyesub? The set was originally designed with doubleshot in mind. As I progressed with the design and liaised with manufacturers, I came to realise dyesub is probably the more adequate method of production given the relative complexity of the novelties and the need to use multiple colours. Further, this allows for lower price and relatively quick fulfilment time.

Wuque Studio has offered to produce this set using their special all-sided dyesub technique. This technique produces crisp, clear legends, and ensures all sides of the keycap are uniform in colour, with little variance or blemish. Although Wuque is mainly known for its keyboards and doubleshot keycaps, it has also produced dyesub keycap set – most notable, and also utilising all-sided dyesub, is WS Camping. The fact that Camping’s designer chose WS is a powerful testament of its quality.

Some kitting suggestions:

* I'd move R1 End and Pg Dn to Numpad kit as they're used for 1800 layouts
* you can cut one of the 1u and one of the 1.25u bars in each bar color

GLWIC!

disappointed that the move to WS will mean no international support whatsoever (the previous iteration has iso-uk in base) but gl

iso-uk still meant no international support

GL with IC, I mostly never made an asuna yet with my SAO line due to just being so close to basic white and red sets. I do hope I was wrong and this sells nicely.

I will say you are taking a major risk with the Aincrad novelty and the straight up asuna deskmat.

Again, Good luck with IC I will be skipping asuna with my set line because I dont think I can do better then this :)

Maybe not aligned with the theme, but I think this set would look better with matching red alphas instead of white. GLWIC
