Something something requests for HAL's likeness something something "I'm afraid I can't do that".

Super curious about all the sketches and ideas Ruth had for this.

It's a good illustration; I like how Ruth conveyed a certain innocence in the star child. Just not something I'd really want to hang, though.

Also, it feels like artists always want to find a way to get HAL into their 2001 posters, even when it's not necessary...

I'm shaded by the fact that the Kubrick estate doesn't always sign off on the best stuff, like Ruas' Full Metal Jacket.

It's nice work by Ruth and it's true to his style, though I do really wonder about the other concepts he had.

For the trivia hounds...

Moore sculpted the two-and-a-half foot tall baby creature out of clay, incorporating the facial features of actor Keir Dullea, who played Bowman in the film. Then a final version was made from fiberglass and outfitted with mechanisms to make the eyes movable. The baby’s crown detached, allowing the insides of the bulbous head to be accessible.

In addition to appearing in the film, the fiberglass fetus was used in promotional materials, including the “Ultimate Trip” poster shown below. Most shots of the Star Child have an ethereal, heavenly glow, and a placental halo, which Kubrick created using a handful of tricks including shooting the prop through a layer of pre-WWII women’s stockings. But at their heart was the same fiberglass baby.

Reminds me of an Advil headache tablets advertisement btw 8)

Ruth: The point and purpose - after a number of sketches - was to settle on what would essentially be a character study of the Star Child himself, and to depict him in a way that speaks to his personhood and his relationship with the HAL 9000.

As Bowman is reborn as the Star Child the variant makes more sense as a composition, as he comes from the ship and is reborn as such. The ship was a vessel in his journey.

Personally, I don't see the HAL connection here, beyond a compositional choice shape-wise, since Bowman deactivated the computer due to an internal fault/conflict with its processes. How it relates to him or his transition to the Star Child is not clear in this composition imo.
