Peril on the perilous moon Ymir Two

These are strange days.  I hope everyone is staying safe and sound out there.  I made an illustration inspired by the science fiction movie, Prospect.  In the movie Prospect a man and his teenage daughter encounter nonstop danger while searching for valuable gems on a forested alien moon.  The atmosphere of the moon is toxic to humans, so they have to wear their space suits throughout the movie.  The movie was filmed in the temperate rainforests of Washington State.

In my illustration, a working-class grunt of the future has accidentally discovered the apex predator of the toxic moon Ymir Two.  His day of taking mineral readings just became a great deal more perilous.

Here is an illustration I made with pen and ink loosely inspired by the Sigmund and the Sea Monsters show.  Sigmund and the Sea Monsters is a children’s television show from the early 1970s that was in syndication in the early 1980s.  I have a very distant memory of having watched an episode and I remember my brother talking about the show.
