Aperture Throne by DeepChrome Aperture Throne by DeepChrome
After seeing the designs for a chair for their humanized GLaDOS designs by :devmikeoneyoru: and *TwinklePowderySnow, I thought I'd take my own crack at it.

This is based more on that forward view of GLaDOS you get when she's talking at you - I went with a little of the chassis' influence on the sides, but the idea is that "head on" view.

There's also, for eagle-eyed fanpeople, a few nods to the Emperor's throne from Star Wars. :D Mostly in the footrests, the arm rests, and the padded back.

I also had the idea to put the GLaDOS core on my humanization's face whenever she's in the chair, over the "crazy" red eye she has that she usually covers up with her hair. I haven't decided too much on what it is, but my thinking is a data port that hooks her into the mainframe, and it requires a hardline into the android via that red aperture eye she has. I'll work out the details later, it's not like she wears it as often as *TwinklePowderySnow's humanization wears her Visualization Device. (Sorry TPS, I just had to shorten it down to that, the way people take ASHPD down to "Portal Gun"...)

Anyways, probably about an hour and a half, start to finish, maybe less than that. Photoshop CS3, Wacom Cintiq.

GLaDOS is copyright Valve.

You're officially an art-idol o' mine now. Our GLaDii need to meet, though mine needs a bit of fixing, so to speak...

... I'm sorry, but I do believe all of my crazy imagined stories now have my GLaDOS (whom I cannot draw because I suck really bad at drawing anything but Pokemon >_<) sitting in this. Partially for the "hahahahahaaaa" factor because she's quite young (single-digit young. in my defense, she kinda acts like it), and partially because it's a FREAKING AWESOME CHAIR OF POWER.

so yeah hi I love the tumblr

um

i'm just going to leave awkwardly now

(oh and please tell G and Micro that I say hi when you rectify the situation you are currently in)

Wow! This is sooo awesome! Much better than mine, IMO. =D
I love how it is similar to, and yet distinct from her original chassis. I also like how massive it is. I need to make mine bigger, I think. xD

I...I thought yours was bigger....? :wtf:

Anyways, glad you liked it. And I liked yours a lot too - think the leather-esque padding on the back of my design was inspired by the backing on yours.

As for size, yeah it had to be big. Like GLaDOS' ego. XD

Well, it's kinda big, but not big enough! :<

This has something to do with the size of GLaDOS's ego, I'm sure. XD And yeah, she'd probably make it big.

Hey! There's a fluff explanation for her makeover between P1 and P2. "I'm not EPIC enouuugh!!" XD

Thank you! :D I was just having fun with my own variation on the idea, since the only other two GLaDOS-thrones I've seen were the ones I linked above.

Yeah I'd probably like that too. Except I'd spend all day blathering out GLaDOS quotes.

There's also a little Star Wars influence from the Emperor's throne in there.

I like the idea of her being in that "overlord control" throne-type position rather than how most do it (and it is speculated that her character design in the game was originally intended this way) like how she's sort of upside down, bound and gagged. Nice and original.

DeepChrome Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks. And that's interesting. I figured that was the main reason for them to have her hanging off the ceiling.

Not sure if I'd call it original compared to the other throne designs out there (there's 2 I know of), but at least I'd tried to be somewhat different. >_>

Oh, my bad. You see I haven't kept tabs on many GLaDOS humanizations, so I didn't see those other thrones until I used the link in your description.
