    This is very interesting. I know about the book ”Banned Demons” from a friend of yours (well I suppose she is ...) This is quality stuff, I'll be around. Best luck.

    love how this all works out. really good way to tell the stories.
    what i'd want to know is...how did you figure out the omaja one? did you first paint it the way you wanted it to appear,and then make a negative image of it? incorporate that into the final picture? how?

    An afterimage or ghost image is an optical illusion that refers to an image continuing to appear in one's vision after the exposure to the original image has ceased. Negative afterimages are caused when the eye's photoreceptors, primarily those known as cone cells, adapt from the overstimulation and lose sensitivity.

    Serbian Mythology

    OMAJA/APPARITION - Omaja is rarely seen demon, it has the ability to alter its physical appearance, and often represent itself as vulnerable girl.
    Concentrate on the blood stain in the middle of the picture, on the handkerchief, for about 20 seconds. Take a look at a wall near you. Than start blinking your eyes and you will see a true Apparition emerging.


    I started by digitally drawing a white face on a black background the way I wanted it to appear, and then made a negative image of it. Later I painted rest of the painting while trying to match black and white surfaces with something on the girls body (hair, flower, handkerchief...). In this process black silhouette changed a little. Here you can see the difference...

    Neke od ovih slika me podjsećaju na "leptiricuu" koju sam gledao kao dijete samo jednom, a još se sjećam, brrrrrr

    Omaja is FREAKISHLY scary. I watch a lot of horror movies and have seen some horrific things there. But this scared the hell out of me. To see that face in my desk.... chills went down my spine. I love the darkness of the night, and at times despise daylight. But if I watch this enough... well suffise to say I wont be looking for that illusion too often.

    Cuma worked best in the second version. But I liked the content in the first. Maybe if the figures and the overall contrast of the surroundings had been less it might have worked just as well there.

    Anyway, this is truely beautiful and masterfully done. True poetry. Can I ask; the egg tempera you use, did you make that yourself?

    I was directed to your work after reading the post on Gurney Journey about your method of making maquettes. I was immediately struck and inspired by your work, in particular Omaja and am glad to have found you here on CA. Amazing. Keep it up.

    Mateja - Hvala puno!

    Miljenko - Hvala na poredjenju, bas mi je drago sto si povezao moje ilustracije sa "Leptiricom", taj film mi je bas velika inspiracija.

    Geir - Thank you! It is really great compliment for me.
    I make my own egg tempera paints (grinding pigments and mixing with egg yolk). I also prepare traditional chalk and rabbit skin glue gesso on plywood. The whole process is as traditional as can be.

    Max Martelli - Thank you for the feedback and support!

    I love the mood of these. Some great thought and process behind too. Doesn't leave me indifferent.
