Entechment! by wraithdt Entechment! by wraithdt
Hi guys! This is a new set of 12 artworks I did for the new Star Wars Essential Reader's Companion. Although the dateline for this book was a lot tighter it nevertheless was an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

As with the last book I will be posting them in the order of sequence as it appears in the Reader's Companion. Enjoy!

An Entechment in process from the Truce At Bakura novel. The space raptors are called Ssi-ruuk and there are the ones torturing and sucking the life out of that the poor Imp officer using a contraption called an Entechment rig. The "life-energy" extracted is used as a power the Ssi-ruuk war-machine. The other human in the scene is Dev Sibwarra, using the force to calm the victim down. One of the few creepy scenes in the Star Wars universe IMO.

Ironically the Ssi-ruuk apparently got their collective butts KICKED by the Vong. Sometimes it takes a greater monster to put down a lesser one I guess.

This looks like a scene in The Truce At Bakura.

Yeah!  Another old favorite!  I felt so bad for this poor kid, and for Luke when he . . . you know.  ^^

I absolutely second what GBscientist said. A very underappreciated chapter of Star Wars, and a very nice depiction of it.

This is an awesome picture for a very underappreciated part of Star Wars canon.

Very interesting depiction of the Ssi-Ruuk, almost dragonish. And the emotions in the humans faces are very well done :)

I guess that the Ssi-ruu behind Dev is Ivpikkis (the red one) and the yellow one is Firwirrung. Cool! But someone is missing: Bluescale!........:D I understand that you didn't had enough space in the picture for him,.....anyway this is an amazing work and I really like it :D

P.S. My first SW novel to read was The truce at Bakura. That is a really cool novel regardless of what others tell!

P.P.S. The Ssi-ruuk are pretty cool as a species, but there is something I find annoying (to a certain degree only!) at them: those nose tongues....can you imagine them flickering those in the air ?!

Anyway, keep up the good work! :D

I've read that book before! It was quite a long time ago...
I really enjoyed it, though it was really sad. This is an excellent depiction!

I don't think I've ever seen a depiction of the Ssi-ruuk before. Now I have! Definitely, very very creepy and a tragic story for Dev.

Brilliant work with this sequence and the Ssi-Ruuk. I've always found Truce at Bakura to be one of the most underrated novels in the EU. While taking place just post Episode VI, it none the less felt very original, not ridding the coat tails of 'Jedi like so many Clone Wars novels currently seem to ride the Series.

They are the stealers of souls.

I shame with what happened to Dev, although his death probably did inspire Luke to seek out more Jedi.
