Thrawn portrait by Evolvana Thrawn portrait by Evolvana
My favorite character from Star Wars (the Expended Universe): Thrawn !

A character created by T. Zahn in his books "The Thrawn Trilogy" (Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, The Last Command), the best Star Wars books ever. He was the greatest enemy of the Republic :) a real genius!

Thrawn is the property of T.Zahn and Star Wars!

Fully drawn with Photoshop CS3.

I read "Dark Force Rising".  I didn't know it was part of a trilogy.  I may have to look for them to read the whole series.  Great picture.

You mean you started with the 2nd book of the trilogy? and you didn't realize there was something missing, the beginning of the story for example? :XD:
1st book: Heir to the Empie
2nd book: Dark Force rising
3rd book: The Last Command

Yeah.  I wasn't in a position to make too many book purchases, even though I'm a big reader (not big as in body size) of sci-fi, I missed this series.  But, I've done that so many times because I rarely go into book stores and miss a lot of books when they first come out.

But you can still find these books on amazon on websites like this. They even published again that trilogy under the label "Star wars Legends" recently.

I may have to check that out.  I'm a big customer of Amazon.  I've bought so many books from them it's ridiculous.  LOL.  MY second place to look is eBay.  I've found things there I was looking for that Amazon didn't.

Tout à fait d'accord avec toi... les premiers romans que j'ai lus et les meilleurs de loin :-) ... dommage que ce ne soit pas cette trilogie qui soit adaptée au cinéma pour la suite...

Joli portrait du Grand Amiral Chiss ;-) ... félicitations !

Excellent. Just as I imagine him.

Why do "evil" masterminds allways look more charming :P

poor Thrawn. Only wanted to restore order and prepare everyone for a much greater threat. Forever best.

Ahhh so that's the series where Thrawn is from! I just noticed this in your gallery! My fiance taught me about him recently, but all I've been able to learn about him is what's on wikipedia and starwars wiki.
Even then, he seems wicked cool!

He is from the Star Wars books Heir to the Empire/ Dark Force Rising / The Last command ^^ he also appears in other books by Timothy Zahn :)

I need to remember those name! I only have 2 or 3 Star Wars books, but I don't think any of them are the Timothy Zahn books D:

Yea, here you go: [link]

It may not look like the credit has a link because of her profile layout, but when it showed up on my dashboard, it looks like it was posted directly from DA, via the Tumblr Share button.
I also have it reblogged on my blog, and the link to you shows up just fine =)

And a bit inactive? I don't think I've seen you post since I started following you ; u;

I just read the first chapter of Heir of the Empire today and found this incredible "man" (or chiss XD). He's such a great character, so well balanced and so unlike the other Imperial officers. I will totally cheer for him for the rest of the trilogy!

I'm happy you discovered one of the best characters of the SW expended universe :D

after that trilogy you can also read the 2 books "The Hand of Thrawn" ("Specter of the past" and "Vision of the future") and also the very good "Ountbound flight" (with younger Thrawn in it)

Thank you for your suggestions! I hope to find them in Italian, otherwise in English somewhere...
I like Thrawn because he's a very interesting character, fond of art, admired by his troops, and genial. I don't like Napoleon, but I think Thrawn is a Napoleonic figure, a Romantic one, a leader who can inspire his men. That's the first feeling reading about him.
May you tell me something about the plot of those three books and if Timothy Zahn is the author? Thank you! =)

I read a few books by Zahn, but I haven't actually read about Thrawn yet. I know of him. Wasn't he inspired by Rommel or something?

Either way, this guy looks intense.

Evolvana Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2011   Digital Artist
Well, inspired by genius tacticians, like Napoleon, Rommel, and even Sherlock Holmes for the brilliant deductions.

You realy should read the Thrawn Trilogy (Heir to the empire), the anniversary edition will be released in a few month!
