2001: A Space Odyssey Icons - By Mischa McLachlan

16 icons Based on the 1968 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film "2001: A Space Odyssey".

After completing the set of Fight Club icons, i got lots of great feedback from people suggesting movie ideas. One of the more reoccurring films was 2001: A Space Odyssey. A film which i had really loved, and up front i thought there would be lots of really interesting ideas for icons. However after starting the set, i realised a lot of the spaceships and items i planned to make were actually very difficult to render within the boundaries of a square icon shape.

For Example, I have not included an icon of the Monolith, or of the Discovery spaceship. I attempted numerous versions and wasn't satisfied with the results i achieved.

Another problem i found was trying to replicate the sterile and clean look found in the movie. It meant my Photoshop airbrushing and such had to be spot on, which meant things took a lot longer than i anticipated.

However, there is a few good icons in this set, i hope you will enjoy them!

Feel free to email me any feedback or comments!
