Sony Vaio Sound Waves by transfuse Sony Vaio Sound Waves by transfuse
This was an entry for the Sony Vaio Graphic Splash design contest.


The idea was inspired by the description for the Vaio FW, which states:

"Reminiscent of a rolling wave, the smooth, curved lines of the FW redefine functional beauty."

I tried to keep that in mind throughout the design process. The drawing took about 10~12 hours to complete in one sitting. I would've taken more time on it and spaced myself better, but I didn't become aware of the contest until a couple days before the deadline. I wasn't 100% satisfied with the result, but overall it still came out a bit of alright.

Photoshop CS3: About 12 hours

Elements and flow also inspired by Limkis, specifically

i dunno about the fw  but my vaio  ( vpc)  has all the  lines of a brick and looks more  like the ps 4 

still a bit odd that there is no vaio  group on here

this is probably my fave of the vaio wallpapers :3 I love the style, the curves really do add a ton more aesthetic pleasure to the overall work when you look at it. It really does speak for itself and the mermaid;s earfin things are AWESOME XD and the colors really do literally compliment one another.

Not sure what you mean by "similar creations". If you browse my Digital Paintings gallery, you can find more of my work that's been digitally painted with Adobe Photoshop. :)

Hi, I run a music Web site and was wondering if you put this image in public domain, or if you would give me permission to use it for my site. Please email me at ragnarockstaff@gmail.com if you have any questions or if you would like to talk about any other designs you would be interested in doing for me. Fantastic work! Thanks!

When I saw this on your laptop, I just have to say, amazing! I've seen my fair share of custom jobs, but yours is by far one of the best I've seen in person. (Kida debating between this one and a very nicely done Fallout mod)

I'm responsible for any upgrades to the laptop. But it's a pretty good laptop the way it is. Only thing I'd really add to it is a blu-ray disc drive. Glad you like the design. :)
