Heeding-Bowman by Drell-7 Heeding-Bowman by Drell-7
This is a new installment in Rob Caswell's and my series of illustrations based on the NOVEL 2010: Odyssey Two. After being galvanized into action by the mysterious apparition of Dave Bowman, and the disappearance of the enormous "zagadka" or monolith, orbiting Jupiter, the crew of the Alexi Leonov scramble to improvise a connection between their ship and Discovery. They will use the remaining fuel in Discovery to boost the Leonov in order to begin their journey back to Earth earlier than planned.

Done in Lightwave 10 and Photoshop CS 6.Thanks to all the builders of the models used in this image!
Thanks for having a look!

One thing I've noticed that you didn't put in (now that I'm re-reading the books) are the radiator "wings" on Discovery that A.C.C. describes as V-shaped wings sprouting from the sides of the reactor housing. If you do either a Google search for images of A.C.C.'s Discovery or looking through this site, you'll see many pictures of models that were built with these fins.

Actually, the rectangular radiators are not what Clarke described in the novel "2001'. He describes there the far more elegant V radiators from what is commonly called the "Dragonfly" design.

Clarke specifically states, in the introduction to "2010: Odyssey Two" that he is writing a sequel to "2001" the movie, and not the novel, and that changes in Discovery, the events in the novel, and even the ultimate destination of Discovery (in the book, it was Saturn) that the movie made, should be in force when reading 2010. So, we went with Clarke's stated intent, and Discovery in this series appears as it did in the movie "2001".

Ok, thanks for clearing that up. By the way, have you ever watched the first movie while stoned? The flight of Bowman near the end is trippy while stoned.

"The Ultimate Trip", as it was called, even before the MGM marketing department started using the phrase. I never personally have, but I've certainly heard detailed accounts!

I personally will never allow myself get high but like you have heard tales and can understand from the final flight scene.
