Serbian Fairytales - The Groom Snake

Hey there,

Long long time without a post, but i've been quite busy so i have an excuse, sort of :)
Anyway, i would like to show you the first illustrations that i did for a very interesting project i currently working on.
These illustrations are done for the book that is called "Serbian Fairytales", and the name of this fairytale is "The Groom Snake".
I'm trully blessed because working on this project gave me another chance to work with some of my dearest friends and colleagues, Dusko Bjeljac, Dragan Bibin, and the Master, Petar Meseldzija.

Stay tuned, more is yet to come :)    
(i will update this post as soon as i translate the shorter version of the fairytale, so, if you are interested you can read what it's all about).

  1. thx guys,
    much appreciated!!! :)

  2. Velicanstveno!

  3. Such beautiful work! I only just saw some of your art on 3Dtotal, I don't know how I've managed to overlook it before. Your work is inspiring and by far has one of my most favourite styles.
    Would you happen to have any progression shots of any of your pieces?

    1. hey there, i'm so glad you managed to find me at last :P
      i have one tutorial i did for the 3dtotal, it is one of the illustrations i did for the Serbian Mythology books, and you can see it here:

      the reason why i don't have more of them is because mainly i'm very chaotic when doing a piece, so it's really hard for me to do a tutorial so everyone can understand it.
      and if you like the one i gave you the link to, stay tuned i'm going to do one more really soon, with a brand new illustration.

      thx for the support man,
