Panel 2 was the first good look at the cockpit of the Khoruysa Brimia, and it was something I wanted to draw so that I could personally get a better feel for the details of the four stations and the different consoles beyond just the rough sketches I had done for myself at the concepting stage.

As for the layout itself, I wanted the cockpit to be tight but not cramped, and I wanted the front stations to have consoles that wrapped around the pilot and co-pilot seats, so that characters could swivel around to work various consoles behind them and to their sides. Not I that I actually ever draw them doing that. 🙂
