The RUNNERS universe is not a pretty one. Well, it can be in places, but there are also plenty of seedy areas to go around. Given the crew is down on their luck in this story, I wanted them to really be slumming it by going to this run-down ghetto of a station looking for work. I wanted it to look like a station that used to be nice but eventually deteriorated into an eyesore, with random additions and patches, obnoxious signs, and graffiti covering both the exterior and interior.
The two aliens in the foreground are conducting a drug transaction, by the way. You can tell by the sly way they’re looking around them, even though they’re standing in the middle of the street.
