Title: OFFICIAL pics of Etain and Jusik!
Post by: ARC_Commander_Colt on May 08, 2011, 10:49:56 PM
I found these on Wookieepedia. EDIT: Also, Rav Bralor and Mij Gilamar.

And here I thought Etain was creepy before...

I swear that thing is going to be haunting my nightmares now.

Just because they were on Wookiepedia does not make them official.    


Who is the artist?  What did the artist make them for?   Was the artist commissioned my Lucasfilm to do these?

Also, we're Etain's brown hair and freckles? You know, one of her major defining features?

All I know is they came from some kind of card game thing called 'Star Wars Galaxy' which is an official project. And that pic of Etain is pretty messed-up, but I guess the artist was paying more attention to drawing than reading the description...

I hate that. Like when people who do cover art for books apparently only read the back jacket and mess tons of details up. Gah.

Yep, those look like the sketch cards (although they might not be), which are special inserts from the Topps Star Wars Galaxy cards.  I'm not sure what series they are.  Here's some other sketch cards, which were done for series 6.

Well rember too, not every card done makes the run and if it doesn't make the run, even though it was LFL licensed, it's Infinities canon at best.

Or not at all, as often happens things done for games are considered non-cannon from the start, or shortly afterwards. Honestly, the images looking like they never went through post-production and they don't follow the descriptions in the books leads me to safely believe the are not cannon.

Unfortunately, they're legit, the same as that questionably dog-like picture of Mird that came out a while back.  Not a big fan of these at all, to be honest.  The Jusik one looks decent, yeah, but Etain looks like bad fanart they snatched up from somewhere, and I bet you couldn't tell which of those pics is Mij and which one is Rav (or if they're even two supposed to be two different people) unless you already knew.
I mean, I wasn't really expecting somebody as awesome as Chris Trevas to do the headshots...but come on. :yuck:

Don't question Mia. She's the SW canon genius.

You add in comments like this when someone actually questions her, not before. Then it makes you look like a schizophrenic screaming at the blank spots between the posts as they question the other members. It's really one of those things that make you question your sanity...not that I've ever had to do that or anything...my, look at the time, I must be going now.

So if no one questions you, why tell people not to? Unless it's the voices who are questioning...

The blank spots are my friends. You do not mess with the blank spots.

Okay, lets explain this...

i was having a joke, and I was saying no-one should do it after the post.. See any connections yet?

Why does Etain have red hair? They totally ruined her! Although she is easier to imagine with just red hair. I mean, it is pretty hard to imagine someone with three different hair colors. The rest are pretty cool to.

This is pretty close to a necro-post and adds nothing to the thread. We discussed Etain's wrong hair color further up the page. Please check the date on threads and the previous posts see if the information you plan on posting contributes anything. Thanks.

Well it is implied throughout the books that she's not exactly the prettiest face floating around the Galaxy. At least, according to the throught processes of people like Ordo (granted he has Ms "I'm-so-pretty-I-scare-people" back home but ymmv).

I actually think this latest picture is much better done than the last, in terms of both proportion, realism and finishing quality. Everyone has thier own idea of Etain, and I think this artist did a pretty decent job taking her majorly defined traits, freckles aside (let's face it, most teens, and that is what Etain most likely was in HC, lose childish features like that as they mature), and combining them into a 'neutral' composition.

My biggest qualm with this depiction is the age that Etain is depicted at. She looks like she's in her mid-30s here.

I'd believe that as a Jusik about ten or fiteen years older than he was for that...

Yeah, Jusik and Etain both are too old in these pics.....

Ironically, this picture of Scout looks more like Etain than the picture of Etain. Karen did say they looked alike, though.  :P
