[IC] SA - Life Aquatic
« on: Sun, 07 August 2016, 08:53:49 »
Hello!

I've been working on a Wes Anderson palette colored keyset for a while now and finally bringing you this 'Life Aquatic' inspired set.

Child Kits may vary/more be added. Including novelties~

Although I want to keep this kit wallet friendly, accessible to all; that's why so mod options will be minimal.

Hope you like it!

Let me know which one you prefer between #1 and #2 (personally for me its#2; but 3d mockup included is #1)



SP ABS COLORS: BGA (blue) / BFM (light blue) / ON (orange) / YBP (yellow)


Kits/Child Kits (#1) (Still W.I.P)






Feedback greatly appreciated! Much thanks



PS: I recently found out a similar Life aquatic- inspired keyset had been created a year ago; yet had no follow-up. This keyset is by no means related to that previously designed keyset.

For what it's worth, I prefer the first mockup. It's definitely an interesting color choice. Haven't seen something like this before.

Needs a symmetry kit. I prefer the dark legends of 2,but the fn keys of 1.

The alphas in mockup 1 are identical to Yuri SA. However the current plan over there is to do cyrillic alphas, not latin, so there might be enough differentiation.

I thought this set was very similar but I didn't know yuri was aiming for Cyrillic. I guess people who wanted Latin legends will be pushed to this.

Cyrillics are just a feature of Yuri but its not that makes Yuri at all. Thats pretty much the same colorway with just one single difference - mods legends are yellow...

Am I the only one who thinks that keysets look better asymmetrical?

I was just about to say how much this looked like Yuri.

Second on this looking a bit too much like Yuri... And also there's already been an IC on Life Aquatic-inspired set here: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=61661.50

I personally think the colours in the other set mesh with the theme much better.

They do, but pad printed is a turn-off for me.

It's not going to be pad print, we are using double shot.

He basically stole your keyset's colorway and thesiscamper's render. Nothing about this post is original.

Any news on this? I like it and was thinking of something similar after seeing the Nautilus set.

Personally I like the alphas from #2, but the yellow-on-blue keys from #1. Would love to see those combined.

#2 looks better, alpha legends on 1 are a little to much for my taste
