This was such a challenging monster to draw because of its dimensions. Also, when the fellow asked me to draw the trio, I had no idea who the character was on the far right. And when I mentioned to them I was uninitiated to the cartoon that's based on this character, they looked at me like I had just fallen out of an alien space ship. Seriously - I had no clue.
Later on, I found out through FRANCESCO FRANCAVILLA that his name is 'HURRICANE POLYMAR'. What?!
Anyhoo... when I previewed the image on my TWITTER account earlier last week, even more Italians got excited at seeing only the first two characters (the ones I'm actually familiar with) - TEKKAMAN and CASSHAN.
Hm. Who knew? Apparently, the Italians love them some old school anime. Respect.
