[IC] GMK Keycaps FLawLesS Trying Out Some Ideas
« on: Mon, 03 December 2018, 16:17:31 »
Welcome, everyone!

I will go straight to the point I would like to share some of the keycaps set ideas I made today. I just took the color wheel and did just randomly try out colors, until I felt that the results were good.
Sorry if one of this looks like someone else's keycap GB there might be a chance, but I have not taken any inspiration from other sets while doing those... because I wanted to create something from myself.

I am making an interest check of those sets but I won't make a GB myself the ideas is that if it gets enough of interest I would like that someone who ran a GMK GB before successfully can take it over.
The reason is that I do not have a lot of free time and the knowledge to contact the factories... The biggest reason is my studies. Thank you for understanding.


The sets I have made has a lot to improve for sure but keep in mind this is the first time I am doing this, so be polite when giving feedbacks, please.

You can view ALL THE SETS HERE














Sincerely,

- FLawLesS

My faves are the 1st and 4th. The 4th has a strong yuri vibe. I was initially going to say I'd prefer a very slightly less greeny blue on the mods, but you know what, I really like it.

The Solarized Dark set at the bottom looks pretty nice.

Hello dear mrpetrov,

I am glad that you like some of these. I really have no idea who Yuri is but I had a feeling that somehow some of this might crash with something.

Thank you for the positive feedback!

Yeah, it's (number 4) perhaps a little close to yuri: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-x-t0mb3ry-gmk-yuri-custom-keycap-set

Number four (4) strikes me more like GMK Bento than Yuri.

I know this doesn't draw from any of your color palette samples but another kit similar to GMK Olivia with light pink would be nice. With GMK Calm Depths and GMK Nightmare Nautilus around the corner, I need a fresh breath of air away from blue or green.

I like #3 and #6. Six has such a nice vintage vibe. Maybe it's just my screen, but looks like a dark sepia and cream to me. Very nice.

Hi, there was no intention in copying anyone when doing those sets... I had only a color hex code page in front of me and my taste mixed... Of course, it might look close to someone else GB, there are a lot of sets that have a similar look. Cheers friend.

The brown one has potential as a spiritual successor to Coffee. The first one would be classy in SA, and the red/blue/cream one would be nice with less red (just blue/cream with maybe 1 or 2 red accents).

I like #7.    I love keysets with dark blue alphas.

no.s 5 and 7 look good to me. I like the vibrant primary colors contrasted with the normal legends.
Looking forward to Sanctuary Rebirth, GMK Wavez, and the next paycheck.

GMK does not have centered legends.

use templates off of KBRENDERS to help refine your ideas.


1 - penumbra
2 - GMK saiyan
3 - sa by the sea
4 - GMK Yuri
5 - GMK Solarized Dark (render version)
6 - DSA Coffee House
7 - GMK Salarized Dark (actual results)
8 - By the Sea/GMK Bento hybrid
10 - coffee house/chocolatier
