Pirates battling robotic tigers

Bit of a story behind this one. Back in August of '07 I included some random previews of what would be appearing in my GBFOS blog. One of them was "pirates battling robotic tigers". This was inspired by a mid-'60s Peanuts strip, in which Lucy offers to illustrate a cover for Snoopy's new novel (which, naturally, begins "It was a dark and stormy night"--another preview from the post); Snoopy suggests, "How about a bunch of pirates and Foreign Legionnaires fighting some cowboys with some lions and tigers and elephants leaping through the air at this girl who is tied to a submarine?" Bits of that stuck in my head, and ended up on the blog of some dude with weird hair. Eight months later, I got around to drawing it. (Lucy's version gets rejected because it "needs more tigers". Maybe if she had made the tigers robotic that wouldn't have happened.)

Drawn using:
No. 2 pencil (sketch)
Blue ballpoint pen
