The Hand Of Judgement by wraithdt The Hand Of Judgement 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!

This scene is from the book Allegiance. Mara Jade is the Emperor's Hand here and is being questioned by Darth Vader about a group of rogue stormtroopers. Jade pretends that they are with her and calls them the Hand of Judgement, her own personal stormtrooper guard.

Wow love the rendering of Mara Jade and Vader's meeting but never knew about Jade having a personal guard...

I really enjoyed this book, and the sequel Choices of One!

Nice to see it represented!

Hi there,

I’m involved with the 501st Legion which is an all-volunteer organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate.

The Legion seeks to promote interest in Star Wars through the building and wearing of quality costumes, and to facilitate the use of these costumes for Star Wars-related events as well as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work.

Firstly, I would like to ask you if you wouldn’t mind me using your depiction of Mara Jade from the Star Wars Essential Reader's Companion as the basis for a new costume for use within the 501st Legion?

The Legion has very strict costume development criteria, and I will need to develop a full submission outlining the costume build, components used etc etc.

One of the requirements is to have a new costume approved is that the character appears on or in an officially authorized Star Wars publication, ie The Star Wars Essential Reader's Companion.

Secondly, the other criteria is that there are full body front/back/side references to the costume. Therefore I was wondering if you may still have any concept sketches of the character you may be willing to provide me in my quest to bring this character to life.
I'm after a full sleeve length costume as I have a full sleeve tattoo, and need a costume like this to cover my tattoo.

If a fee &/or usage agreement is required for me to use them, I’m very willing to discuss this with you.

Many thanks
