Živko Kondić

Among other things and different hobbies, I am a visual artist and illustrator. On the internets you can find me under "zhille" and "zhillustrator". I am living and working in Novi Sad, Serbia, a nice, slow-paced city, which I inhabit since high school.

I post my original artwork mostly, so I'd appreciate if you give my work some love and follow me!

  • Kitteh and his warrior pet spidercentaur. :D Živko Kondić, personal work, 2014.

    This is my entry for a Mischief challenge. Mischief is an awesome piece of software I adopted in my workflow, and I’m liking it more and more. Infinite canvas, infinize zoom, it’s really useful. You can find out more and get your 15 day trial at www.madewithmischief.com or see stuff other people made on madewithmischief.tumblr.com so I don’t have to bore you. It’s a good $60 investment.

    I actually won a free license on the challenge, but I already have a license and I’ll be giving it away probably.

    If you like it, feel free to share, like, reblog. Follow me at http://zhille.tumblr.com and http://www.facebook.com/zhillustrator for more stuff, more links on my tumblr homepage.

    Warrior 2, personal work, Živko Kondić 2014.

    Another grayscale warrior illustration, this one less contrasting and extreme than the previous, I tried to keep myself from not using much of the extreme values on this one.

    Made with Mischief completely, only the background is touched up in PS as Mischief lacks nice soft brushes/texture. File size: 1,72mb in Mischief.

    Thanks for liking and re-blogging! Follow me at http://zhille.tumblr.com and http://www.facebook.com/zhillustrator, more links on my tumblr homepage!

    Warrior, personal work, Živko Kondić 2014.

    A sketch I took further during downtime. Looking nice for something out of comfort zone. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out and I’d rather make something new than refining this more. :D Tools: Mischief, Black Ink and Photoshop. 

    Print available on ArtFlakes: http://www.artflakes.com/en/products/warrior-35

    Help me out by reblogging, buying my prints/posters, I have some more stuff on Artflakes. I really appreciate it, I’m so lousy at marketing my stuff. :D

    "Behold", mixed media, personal work, Živko Kondić 2014.

    Some mixed media work I really enjoyed. It really helps to escape to something different than the stuff I draw for work. Maybe it gets more work, maybe not, I like the way it looks now. Painted digitally over a traditional sketch.

    Print ready on Artflakes: http://www.artflakes.com/en/products/behold and locally.

    Like, reblog, share, help me to achieve some exposure, and by all means, follow me on Tumblr, Facebook, or Behance, more links on my Tumblr page.


    Zhille's Print Shop!.

    I’ve opened a print shop at ArtFlakes. I’m really surprised by the ease of process and it seems they do their stuff really profesionally. :) Go buy my stuff, need gold for a Cintiq. :D More stuff will be posted in the shop really soon!

    The only downside is that they have a limit of 25MB for images. :( But you can fit a lot of awesome in 25MB!

    Speedpaintings - Edge Citadel, Shadow Order, Unstoppable Corpse
    Personal work, gotta practice. :) All topics from Super Speedpainting Funtimes, but I submitted only the first two because of time rules. Živko Kondić June 2014.

    These were made mostly with my rectangular brush, no photoref/plate(obviously :D)

    Untitled AEON7 lore painting.
    Živko Kondić 2014., for www.facebook.com/aeonsevenhub

    This one shows up after you finish the game’s tutorial, with a logo and some text. I had fun, though it can be worked on more, but we were under time limits.

    Share, like, I’ll appreciate it very much. :D

    Some thumbnails from my sketchbook. 2014.

    Battling comfort zones. :D These were drawn with ink only, no pencil, to practice committing to a drawing with no undo. They are around 2-3cm high, made with 0.1, 0.3 and 0.5 ink pens, black and white gel pen, a red sharpie, an almost depleted Prismacolor Ice Gray 3&5, a yellow-green highlighter.

    It’s nice to get off the PC to draw from time to time.
