[IC] GMK Omega
« on: Sat, 17 November 2018, 03:38:15 »
Good morning/evening(depending on the time you're reading this) everyone! I am Kasterborous, a relatively new member of this community based in Singapore. I am here today to bring you all a Wrestling themed keycap set, GMK Omega. Feel free to throw me as much feedback and criticism as you'd like, as I personally want this set to succeed.

This set was done in collaboration with TheRayginAsian.

Ok, enough talk, here are some pictures.

First, the set itself.

Now for some Lumina Renders (Thanks Tes!)











Now that you've seen what I've done so far, here's the feedback form link

I hope to see your responses and bring you this 7 star worthy keycap set!

Well this is certainly very interesting. I'm curious, what was your inspiration for this set? Unusual combination of colors.

From the set name and IC form, I'm guessing Kenny Omega? But imo, the colors are quite a way off...

The inspiration for this set is from a wrestler named Kenny Omega. The colors in question were taken from the outfit he wore when he won the IWGP championship recently.

Here is the picture for reference.

Yes you are right, the colors I used were based off his Dominion outfit (see above). Befoire this, I wanted to do a Bullet Club themed set as it was easier and far more straightforward, but there are too many White on Black or Black on White sets at the moment so I feel that if I did run GMK BC it would just be "another BoW copy". Personally I had a really hard time matching the colors and getting them to look right, so I'm definitely open to suggestion esp from another wrestling fan such as yourself, to make this set better.

the idea is there, but the execution needs some work

try moving some of the colors around and see how that works out

I have to agree with puddsy. I think there's a cool set here hope you keep iterating and find it.

Maybe experiment with darker colors on the mods instead of alphas? I think sets with lighter mods vs alphas don't look good.

I am currently! I currently have 2 ideas in mind, one is to darken the mods, to match the alphas tone, and the second is to swap around the colours so they better synergize with each other.

Beautiful. I'll join if there is an ergo-plank kit like what GMK Royal Navy R2 or GMK Space Cadet did. Don't be like GMK Carbon R2 expecting people to pay $270 for the minimun necessary to cover a 40% board. :)
