Blue Steel by expansiondesign Blue Steel by expansiondesign
I'm really happy with this desktop. Again I attempted to try similar styles to that of *he1z, *j3concepts and *lee25. The chair featured is what I created in Design Tech in Year 12 last year. It is made from mild steel as aluminium is too expensive. It has two configurations: upright and lounge. The positions are changed by sliding the seat of over the back and lying the backrest/front leg down. The seat/back leg is then used to support the backrest. It probably makes no sense to anyone. Oh well. Anyway I enjoy making the cartoony, chunky shapes and I shall continue with this. Ellen wants you to all know that she has sat in the chair.

Edit: Changed background colour to something a bit more me.

Comments and favorites appreciated!
Must full view!


I hope you like it!

I LOVE it!

this is just the sort of technical art I adore; I really, really would like to know how you made the paint splatter effect, because I've spent a long time on the net trying to find out how to do so, and i've been unsuccessful :raincloud:

expansiondesign Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2005
hey, yeah the paint splatter is soo easy. its just a photoshop brush. they can be found here on dev art jsut search recources > photoshop brushes > top favorites... its like the first one there, it looks like blood...
thanks for your kind words! i appreciate them greatly. i hope you like my other work too, like "faced with love" - it has a similar style! cya round :wave:

great composition dude! and great work with the chair...
i once did a chair for a class we have in Portugal called 'theory of design'. but i only had to do a miniature. From where i see it looks like you did it full-sized. Congrats for the chair also... there must have been lots of skill and hard work involved in that too...

Rock on!!! :)

thanks man eyah it is full size got it at home in the pool room :D most of the building was done by machine... laser cut.. but i had to be more accurate with measurements as a consequence... no way i was going to hack into $300 of metal with the resources our school has... ~AdRoiT-Designs has his chair on there too (same school/class) thanks again cya

Good work!

Very nice. It's a fresh design. I like the way you've made the vectors rather sketchy.
Well done.

i'd be curious to see this chair presented in a brochure format or something, like your selling it or advertising it. i think that would make a neat layout.
