Panel 1 is probably my favorite shot of the Brimia from the first story arc. I think it’s because it was the first time I drew the ship where it actually REALLY felt like a real object to me. I guess the foreshortened angle and surface details just brought out the different parts of the ship in a way that made it feel more three-dimensional, whereas all the previous images felt just a tad flat.

It was important for me to establish the Mosquito as both a shuttle (as seen in issue #1) and as a fighter, which is what prompted this scene. Plus, a little ship-to-ship dogfight action never hurts!
