Damned Thems.

Panel five was originally a closeup of the hatchway glass with West’s head in silhouette. I realized that there haven’t been many shots of the fore section of the cargo transfer lock, so I pulled the camera back to add context. The over-the-shoulder shots of Ornix and Val in panels two and three were also supposed to be silhouettes, but it’s been awhile since a scene has taken place in an environment that aesthetically enabled that shortcut.

Mastering notes, 2016.12.07 – Rewrote panels two and three.
