This looks like the image of a human about to referee a fight between a cosmic horror and a space dragon.

Which is awesome.

Referee...

Now I'm imagining some version of the "none of THIS" Looney Toons gag playing out between these three. XD

Oh yeah! I remember there was this Looney Tunes episode with this gag, where Daffy Duck challenged Elmur Fudd in a boxing match... With a duck referee and a duck audience both clearly rooting/rigging the game in favour of Daffy.

In any case, "LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE!"

Folks keep asking that about the ship design, but it wasn't inspired by Firefly, if anything it was more inspired by Peter Elson's work in the old Great Space Battles book series and a bit of the Home World games series. But who knows maybe I was channeling Firefly as I sat doodling the Botanical Gardens.

Just looked up some of Peter Elson's works, I do see what you mean! Great artist as well; always nice to see some good old-school sci-fi artists' work.
