Grand Admiral Thrawn has finally wormed his way into the LCG, and I was actually working on this illustration when the whole "Legends" thing happened to the Star Wars universe. At first I thought maybe it would just get cut from the game or something, but apparently we were right on the cusp and he got in. I definitely feel lucky for being able to slide head first under that door right before it closed, the Thrawn books we some of my favorites as a kid,

This is one of the best images of Thrawn that I have seen.  It shows him almost exactly like I imagined him while reading the books.  Well done! Love

Where'd you get that Aurebesh from? I wanted to ask before trying to interpret them in case they turned out to be gibberish.

One of my favorite EU characters. Sad that he had to die. But he /had/ to die.

Thrawn is one of my favorite villains of all time, and I am glad you were able to keep this! It makes me sad that he is not considered part of the canon anymore.

On the other hand, I think the fact that the EU had Thrawn and Mara Jade is one of the main reasons it won't be totally forgotten.

Amen to that. I've never read NJO or Legacy, but I've read a good scattering in the time before and between the Thrawn Trilogy and Survivor's Quest, and Mara has always been one of my favorite characters. Thrawn, of course, made quite the lasting impression. Zahn did well in creating an antagonist that you almost find yourself cheering for.

An incredible piece who's incredible attention to detail only makes me long the more that we'll see Grand Admiral Thrawn and his story adapted somehow to the new trilogy, unlikely as it may be with his Legends classification. A beautiful piece regardless :)
