Part 2 of my attempt to recreate my favourite pieces of iconic design. The first one (Eames molded chair) ended up being more realistic than I had originally intended. I tried to simplify things a bit with this one. Thoughts?

I like it. Is this how you landed, or is there another revision?

And yes, I like how this one is drawn monochromatic as opposed to the Eames molded chair. You could maybe even pull back more on some of the gradients toward the bottom of the fixture to make it feel more abstracted.
Thanks for the feedback @Nicolas Perner. Haven't had much time for my little side project lately so this is still a work in progress. There's a little piece of coloured glass on the underside of the largest ring that I imagine gives the light a slight tint, thus the gradient. But you're right, it does break from the flatness of the rest of the image. Perhaps making it stand out in a different colour would work.
Well, @Isaac Gray, post more when you get the chance! This is great. You could make one of those interesting parallax website histories—of Eames design. Something in the vein of this: http://cyclemon.com/
