SA HYAH!

Hey everyone, the names Cody, aka THRILLHOIAF on R/MK and GH!
Presnting a keyset inspired by literally the greatest voice-acted cartoon character of my generations Pokemon! Staryu! A nice color palette echoing the warmth and comfort of summer on a uniform SA R3 profile produced by Signature Plastics with doubleshot ABS!

Colors
ABS Chips: YCF, GRX
Custom color pantones: 7574C and 702C

Background
When my last design was coming toward the end of its groupbuy phase I started looking towards future designs/ideas, one such came one night while playing SSBM and reminiscing about Pokemon. The night ended with most of us repeatedly shouting HYAH! as we eliminated one another.
I thought about it some more and came to the conclusion that of all the OG 151 pokemon, I felt Staryu had the best color palette. Not necessarily out of ALL Pokemon, but just in a sense that the characters colors felt so warm and unlike what we're used to seeing in keysets.
Using Jacopos and Kdem007 (of R/MK) KLE for Blender plugin I began creating kits to best reflect the sets palette! I'm by no means a Blender Render pro, I'm amateur at my best, so the following renders are basically placeholders in the event this generates enough steam that I can put in funds for appropriate professionally done renders!

+1 for the renders. All about that.
ETA on this? I just picked up a board that would match perfectly with this set
Mrcookiejar
realistically, based on the poll results, the likelihood of this happening is pretty low. Maybe I can look into running as a maxkey one kit set a la' SA Night King.
THRILLHOIAF
I know this is late and a while back but please consider running this through maxkey it is such a cool idea and his sets are cheap, quality, and fast to ship
I can't claim to be a big Pokémon fan, but I do like the look of this set!
That metallic sheen in particular is lovely!
