Imag­ineFX crit “These char­ac­ters could hardly look more dif­fer­ent. Yet Milivoj treats them both with the same amount of at­ten­tion to de­tail: their pose, ex­pres­sion, garb and tools of their re­spec­tive trades speak vol­umes.” Cliff Hope, Op­er­a­tions Edi­tor


Lo­ca­tion: Croa­tia Web: www.mceran-art.com Em ail: mceran.art@gmail.com me­dia: Wa­ter­colour, acrylic, gouache Milivoj is a mem­ber of Red Sre­brnog Zmaja – trans­lated as the very im­pres­sive-sound­ing Or­der of the Sil­ver Dragon – which is the Croa­t­ian reen­act­ment me­dieval as­so­ci­a­tion. The for­mer vice pres­i­dent also led chainmail work­shops.

Milivoj’s real tal­ents, how­ever, lie in art. He stud­ied paint­ing at the grad­u­ate School of Ap­plied Arts and De­sign where he now teaches, and later at the Academy of Fine Arts’ depart­ment for the con­ser­va­tion and restora­tion of paint­ings, both in Za­greb. As a free­lance il­lus­tra­tor, Milivoj has worked for Ap­pli­bot, World of Warcraft and Wiz­ards of the Coast.

“An il­lus­tra­tion for Jon Schin­de­hette’s Art Or­der con­test Ul­ti­mate Hu­man Fighter. It was my break­through piece that opened the doors of Wiz­ards of the Coast for me. Af­ter six years of try­ing to break into the fan­tasy art busi­ness, I suc­ceeded with just one im­age, pro­duced at the right time and at the right place.”

“This il­lus­tra­tion was for a D&D Art Test Chal­lenge. The idea was to cre­ate some­thing dif­fer­ent from the usual orc look, so I ap­plied a lot of Croa­t­ian folk­lore el­e­ments to his out­fit, the in­te­rior of the kitchen and so on.”
