Ron & Hermione



Just some random Harry Potter fan art... Ron and Hermione in the snowy village of Hogsmeade... Below is the background that I did as a separate file in 2012.

Partibrejkers

A tribute to the cult Belgrade garage/blues/punk-rock band. The lyrics snippets were written in hand by my friends: Jana Aleksić, Bojana Janjić, Sonja Baltezarević, Ksenija Marković, Bojan Palikuća, Milutin Bešlić, Filip Janković and Miloš Dimitrijević. Thanks, guys!

Jurassic Park


The sick Triceratops scene. Paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant (portrayed by Sam Neil) and paleobotanist Dr. Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) from Steven Spielberg's "Jurassic Park". Every now and then I tend to re-watch this exciting movie and it amazes me over and over again.

Hudson from "Aliens"



"Even though his motion tracker detected no activity in the sector, Private First Class Hudson, W. suddenly felt the sort of anxiety that you feel when a pointy teeth monster stares at you from the dark - and a strange heat washed over him, the heat that had absolutely nothing to do with the warm corn fields of his native, far away Oklahoma..."

This artwork is based on Bill Paxton's character of Pvt. Hicks, the cocky U.S. Colonial Marine from James Cameron's "Aliens". Ever since the film's 1986 debut, every single line of his dialogue has become a popular cultural reference ("Game over, man, game over!", "Why don't ya put her in charge!", "Stop your grinnin' and drop your linen", "Is this going to be a stand-up fight, sir, or just another bughunt?", "We're on an express elevator to hell, goin' down!" ... just to name a few).

Trespasser: Jurassic Park


This 1998 first-person video game is often regarded as one of the worst titles in gaming history. Advanced for its time - featuring enormous outdoor environment and dynamic physics modeling - it was rushed and went overbudget several times, so many issues remained unsolved. The developers built and scanned a real 3D model of the tropical island which the player could explore entirely thus resulting in hours of non-linear gameplay. "Trespasser" had a thrilling music score, appealing storyline, top voice acting (Minnie Driver and Richard Attenborough) and a trademark Jurassic Park survival horror atmosphere - setting the stage for much successful "Far Cry" series.

Initially, the game was difficult and buggy for me too, but I gave it a second try a few years later. After a while I got so immersed in its unique enviroment, it even gave me a few nightmares.

"Dawson's Creek" revisited







Joey, Dawson and Pacey, the original trio of friends from the coastal town of Capeside, MA - just before the raging hormones kicked in. While I was working on this fan art I listened to Bob Dylan's opus, so I considered naming this piece after Dylan's Times They are A-Changin' as I thought the title summed the essence of the show's first two seasons perfectly...

Billy Idol









Billy Idol put a great show in Belgrade last week. The first piece was inspired by his 1993 experimental concept album Cyberpunk often regarded as his weakest record that started the decline of his career. I, on the other hand, think that this futuristic concept album, influenced by techno and cybergenre literature, suited Idol's image perfectly and to me it remains his most imaginative effort.  

UPDATE: Images were completely re-colored in 2012.

Zombie-Boy


"Mommy, why the f... have you forsaken me?!"

Out of pure boredom, I turned a very rough unused comic book panel sketch into this bizarre piece of artistic improvisation.

Anytime... Baby!



The artwork was inspired by the film "Top Gun" and the slogan "Anytime, Baby" that the F-14 "Tomcat" fighter crews sported on their squadron insignia. After more than 30 years in active service, the "Tomcat" was retired in September of 2006.

MiG pilots








Character designs based on true testimonials by surviving Yugoslav MiG-29 pilots who flew their 14 malfunctioning jets against NATO in 1999. I did a lot of research and put a lot of time and effort into retrieving every possible information in order to reconstruct these events as true as possible. I hope to produce some more of these character sheets in the future, hopefully to include some more MiG pilots as well as some of their NATO adversaries.

the Rolling Stones


Some of my Rolling Stones fan art featuring the ageless Keith Richards and the band from 1997 Bridges to Babylon era.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day








The Terminator films had a huge influence on me when I was 10. So, it's kinda cool I created this pin-up - although it was not a planned effort! I was just doodling faces for practice and an Arnie-looking character appeared on paper. I realized it had a room for improvement and figured that, with a little effort, I could turn it into a decent full scale pin-up. The next day I added the characters of John and Sarah Connor and a Hunter-Killer hovercraft and - voila!

Written by Marko Stojanović.

Dawson's Creek



The Spielberg-boy and the Girl from the Wrong Side of the Creek... I kinda loved the show's first season back in 2002 or 2003 when it first aired on Serbian TV... The rest of the series was... meh. The pic of Dawson was drawn and colored in 2013 to complement the pic of Joey that I drew back in 2010 (when I rewatched the show) and re-colored in 2012.

Urke the Airman


I always wanted to be a fighter pilot but (for all the obvious reasons) this remained just a pipedream. However, I managed to fly the world's most powerful jets through this comic book character - Urke the Airman. The first episode originates back to 2000 when the character was initially conceived, but was actually drawn in 2004. The second episode followed a year later. Both have been published in various magazines. In 2009 I drew these other two colored illustrations.

Iggy / Funboy





A cross between Iggy Pop and a character named FunBoy from "The Crow" that was loosely based on Pop's persona (Pop was supposedly cast in the role, but due to his touring commitments the part went to Michael Massee eventually).

The lyrics are off Pop's 1996 album "Naughty Little Doggie", the track "I Wanna Live". The background is an homage to Detroit - the city in which the dark and violent movie takes place and which spawned garage proto-punk bands such as Iggy's own Stooges.

Updated in 2013.

Iggy Pop


Easily one of my all-time favorite performers. I saw Iggy's show live in Belgrade in 2008. His onstage passion, honesty and dedication has been a constant inspiration to me. This has been inspired by Pop's looks during the 1993-1994 "American Caesar" era. UPDATE: Colors were redone in 2012.

Noel Gallagher

Noel Gallagher of Oasis during the band's 90's fame.
Originally drawn for a friend as a birthday gift.

Dead Musicians Society

Dead musicians from each decade: John Lennon marked the 60s, Joey Ramone emerged in the 70s, Michael Jackson highlighted the 80s and Kurt Cobain was the icon of the 90s movement.

Prisoner of Azkaban



Another fan take at Alfonso Cuaron's inspired motion picture rendition of J.K. Rowling's third Harry Potter novel. The Dementor and Sirius Black poster elements of the illustration were rendered in full detail and treated separately.

Aliens: Ripley









A modern heroine. Although I prefer James Cameron's take on the "Alien" franchise, I portrayed Lt. Ripley closer to the "Alien 3" version of David Fincher.

When I started working on this I wanted to make it a Moebius-style illustration, but I lost that quality somewhere along the process...

Gule: Hronike jednog Junaka




"Gule: the Chronicles of a Hero" is a short parodic tribute to a real life friend and mentor. It has been exhibited at the 7th International Comics Festival in Belgrade in the September of 2009 and also published in Komiko's "New Serbian Comics" anthology in June 2010.

Nick Slaughter




The leading character (portrayed by actor Rob Stewart) from the TV show "Tropical Heat / Sweating Bullets" became somewhat of a cultural icon in Serbia during the troublesome 90's. I was in elementary school back then and Nick Slaughter was equal to God in the eyes of my classmates. The Serbian student movement embraced the character as their trademark during the protests against Slobodan Milošević's regime in 1996/97.

Slobodan Perić "Buca"



Yugoslav MiG-29 pilot that was shot down by an American F-15 during the NATO bombing in 1999. He survived ejection from an altitude of 7.000 meters, but tragically died ten years later in a car accident.

Robotech


Rick Hunter from the 80s space opera Robotech. I loved the show back in 1991-1992 and still do.
