I simply love your version of the Leonov! I like the movie version too, but this one is definitely much more accurate to the book! It looks amazing! You've done an incredibly great job on her!
I love the whole Space Odyssey series, but 2010 is my absolute favourite! I have read it countless times...

Great to hear from someone who knows the "book ship" well! Thanks for the stamp of approval! We were both sad that we did this a year too late to share the results with Clarke. It would have great to hear what he thought of it. And I'm with ya in feeling that "2010" is the strongest book in the series... even better than "2001", for my tastes.

You've really done a great job there. I suppose Clarke would have appreciated your work - if I were him I would have felt honoured that someone took so much time and effort to design the ship the way I had imagined it while writing the book.
I consider 2010 better than 2001 too. About 2001 I must say that I prefer the movie because it was so much more intense than the book. It's different about 2010. Although I like the movie the book is much better. I still enjoy reading it although I've read it so many times...

As far as 2001 art goes, I really loved this piece... maybe because it was such a respectful creative departure AND fusion. Plus it's just really well done illustration. I love the idea of making Poole black:

This is really a wonderful piece of art! It's done very well and it's a perfect summary of the novel. It's true, the idea of making Poole black is a great one - for me it stands for the hope that at least in the future people are equal.

Yeah, it's much more "Clarkian" in flavor. He was always more of an global thinker than a western thinker.

Yes, true! For the same reasons I was really disappointed about Dr Chandra in the movie 2010. In the book he's Indian, so why couldn't he have been Indian in the movie?

Yup. That was pretty disappointing to me, too. It probably had something to do with Hollywood's reluctance to use minorities in lead roles at the time... and their desire for star names.
