"Cornered" is the next image that comes right after "No Escape" You guessed correctly that Lisa Ohenery is cornered against the locked ship door she was banging on in previous image, now staring strait into the eyes of Hakann. As a concept in the Podeastrian story, Lisa seems to be in serious trouble, but Rick Williams comes to the rescue, able to unlock the sealed door from the other side and yank her from near death, the two having to run when Hakann starts to pry the closing door open.
I enjoyed experimenting with this image. This is the original version which has a grainy camera feel due to the roughness in the pictures. I decided I wanted it to be smoother since the view was meant to be from first person perspective looking at the scene directly and not through a camera. To achieve this I used the smudge tool, happy with the clean, painted comic look that resulted.
The structure of this illustration was again inspired in some way by the movie Alien. And once more I used a DA stock image called Side View Commission Part 2 (of 4)
by the same woman as last image. This time I sought out an image to work with the scene in mind. I was happy to have found one in the same stock gallery, seeing it was rather tricky finding the right mood and head position of someone staring at a creature in stiff fear. Also in both cases I've used my own photos of a Hakann toy.
