Another Animation:Master monthly contest entry. The theme was Science Fiction. I always loved the movie 2001 and had planned to create either the Discovery ship or one of the small pods. It required a lot of research and screen captures from the movie.
The most difficult part was finding useable references for the space suit and its components. There are limited views of this in the movie and many of the shots use different components or in the shot one side was hidden from view. I was able to finally find photo reference from a touring Kubrick movie show, that featured many props from his movies. Someone posted photos of the actual space suit used in the film that I was able to use to recreate it in 3D.
