Keychron K2 v2 Keyboard

Man, i love mechanical keyboards. In this project, I was aiming for a more solid, adult, and fancy look of Keychron K2 v2. So I made keycaps dark and glossy because black and glossy things automatically feel strict and stylish :>






I was inspired by cool guys and gals of Behance and wanted to try to make a product visualization project too. It turned out not that perfect, but at least i know the workflow now, and it was a good study :>

That’s excellent, and indeed, very stylish – more stylish than the real thing.

(Though I suspect if Blender had feelings they would be a little hurt when modeling a keyboard without a number pad.) :wink:

this is spectacular!

Thank you! I appreciate it! :>

Thank you!!

I bought this exact same keyboard just a month ago. It’s awesome, and so clicky!

It’s not as bad as you’d think. Since I use the ~ key for viewport navigation, the only thing that bothered me was missing out on grow and shrink selection with ctrl+ and -, which was easily fixed with a quick key rebinding.

It’s amazing how objects as “simple” as a keyboard or a glass, sometimes give a more interesting result than renders that have very complex objects.

That looks way better than most of the commercial product renderings I’ve seen.

As bit of an inside joke I have to comment: nice work making ABS caps look desirable. :wink:

Though speaking of the keycaps isn’t the stock set gray modifiers + dark gray keys?

This looks REALLY GOOD.

Love the presentation Ideas, especially the “moonrock”

Thank you!! Yes, you’re right, K2 v2 has the grey keycaps, but i really wanted to try my skills on rendering black on black, so for this i created my own super custom keycap set, so yeah:>

Glad you like it, thanks! It was a really random idea, but i kinda happy how it turned out, though lighting for this shot was the hardest thing ever.

I don’t care about how you model this. But the lighting looks insane :scream:

Dear Mark,

What an amazing job you have done there. I use the K2 my self, and I must say it looks more real than the real thing!! Just one question though, would you be kind enough to share the Blender file?? I am just starting out with Blender and this just for my own personal learning process. Pretty please??

R.

Good Job, Too bad we can’t see the mesh
