Unfinished Painting

I admire the work of the early to mid 20th century American pulp artists; all those crazy sci-fi, detective, romance covers painted with a deadline that required a lot of designing on the fly. What fun!
...This painting has been a side project for a couple of months, but I don't think I've spent more than 8 to 10 hours on it, if that! I suppose it maintains the spirit of the old pulp deadline, although it's digital and I was able to make the canvas larger when I wanted more room for the little iron monkey-- but it's as close as I can (comfortably) get to the old spirit from here in the future! The 21st century!
