Stjepan Šejić (born November 27, 1981) is a Croatian comic book artist currently working as an illustrator for American comic book Witchblade, published by Top Cow Productions.

Biography[edit]

Šejić resides in Crikvenica, Croatia at the moment, while he was born in Vinkovci. Before he started as a comic book artist, Stjepan wanted to become a lawyer.[1]

In 2007, Sejic signed a contract with Top Cow, where he will be doing the art for Witchblade from issue #116 to #150. After completion, it will be the longest run of Witchblade ever made by a single artist. Additionally, he illustrated the Witchblade miniseries First Born and Broken Trinity, while also contributing covers to the Top Cow series The Darkness. While working on Witchblade, his popularity grew among fans.[2]

He also cooperates with smaller comic publishing companies such as Arcana Studio and Dynamite Entertainment. The programs he uses to create his art are 3ds Max, Mental Ray, Photoshop and ZBrush.

Stjepan is married to fellow Croatian artist Linda Lukšić Šejić.[3]

Early work[edit]

Before comics, Šejić worked as a night lifeguard at a public beach, as well as selling fruit on the marketplace afterwards. He later began to think about drawing comics. Šejić was mainly inspired by Italian comic book titles before he stumbled upon a copy of Witchblade. He became fond of the characters and the artistic style, which lent inspiration to his own. His work is mostly influenced by Marc Silvestri and Michael Turner.

Šejić started his career as a colorist, painting covers drawn by Tyler Kirkham, who e-mailed him back when Sejic started sending his work around the artist community.[4]
