The Anakin Solo over Kashyyyk by wraithdt The Anakin Solo over Kashyyyk by wraithdt
This is one of ten pieces I did for the new Star Wars Essential Guide to Warfare. I had a blast working on it and I'm excited that I am able to contribute to the Star Wars universe.

I will be posting them in the order of sequence as it appears in the book. Hope you guys enjoy them!

Of the ten pieces I did for Warfare I think this is my favorite one. This scene takes place at the Battle of Kashyyyk during the Second Galactic Civil War where Galactic Alliance forces clash with Confederate forces made up of Bothans, Wookies, Hapans and the Jedi Order. The battle rages around the Anakin Solo, commanded by Jacen Solo (secretly Darth Cadeus), as she bombards the planet surface of Kashyyyk from orbit with her forward long-range turbolasers.

Other things to note in this piece is the never-before-seen Wookie Owool Interceptors making attack runs on the Anakin Solo and the Stealth X fighters flown by Jaina Solo and the Jedis in the foreground. There are also some XJ3/XJ5 X-wings flying about and for those who are wondering about the Mon Calamari Cruiser, yes, it is an MC90 class.

I think it will open with the shot of Kira/Ren's bumper speeder crossing the desert of Jakku with the crashed x-wing and Imp. Star Destroyer.

Were the Wookie Owool Interceptors based partially on the Porax-38 Interceptor?

yeah... fires over Kashyyyk. did anyone read the book 'FURY' by Karen Davis? or at least I thought it was Karen Davis.

I still remember how they stopped the fire through by starting a secondary one that would create a large enough barrier between the fire and the rest of the massive trees. and of course helped by Han Solo, Leia, and Waroo (chewbacca's son?).

That was my point :nod: . The Hapans were never big on firepower. I play a game in the E.U era. I tried it on hard difficulty and only had Hapans left to throw at my enemies. It did not end well. >.< ~ C

Very nice artwork, but if I remember, wasn't anakin solo painted in black, had a masking cone and a gravity well generator? Such features would be very noticeable.

I am such a fanboy for being able to identify the MC90, Bothan Assault Cruiser, and Stealth-X fighters without first reading your description! Also, because you're such an amazing artist that the representations are so spot-on that I didn't have to try very hard. So far, this is my favorite piece of your work. And, that's saying something because I am geeking out so hard right now!
