Termite Bianca

This is my rendition of Marco Bianchini's Termite Bianca which will be included in the book called "Fantasia Termite Bianca - An International Tribute" published by Pavesio Editore.

I painted this artwork a few months ago. If I remember it correctly, I think I did this around... June this year? The biggest challenge I faced while I was doing this (aside from this being one of my few sci-fi illustrations) was the fact that I never knew a single thing about the character when I was asked to paint a tribute. I took my time researching. I went to every comic book store I knew, hoping I could find a copy of a Termite Bianca graphic novel. Unfortunately, I found none so I had to rely on whatever materials I could gather from the official website which happens to be written in Italian.

This is the output of my efforts. I'm glad Marco liked it and I'm really grateful for having been given the chance to be included in the upcoming book! It should be in book stores soon!
