SIXMOREVODKA is a Berlin based outsourcing partner for the entertainment industry with a focus on 2D artwork and art related services.

Some of the studios other more notable clients include Blizzard, Warner Bros, Ubisoft, Hasbro, Lionsgate, Capcom, Disney, Nike and Atari.
Djurdjević was born in Koblenz Germany. As a child he exhibited a talent for drawing, inspired by cartoons such as He-Man. Visual art was not encouraged in his household, and so Djurdjevic was forced to teach himself how to develop his abilities. As a boy he was unaware that other artists he admired often used pictures and photos to draw inspiration from, assuming that they made it up out of their heads. This later contributed to his not using any references in his work process, relying on a visual library that was developed through memorization. When Marko was 11, he discovered Burne Hogarth’s book Dynamic Anatomy (1958), a major turning point in his self-education. Studying the guide for two years, Djurdjevic then put the book away and began to add a layer of realism to his drawings. He used what he learned from Hogarth as a foundation, while at the same time pulling ideas from his everyday life observations.
As a teenager, Djurdjević became influenced by American comic books such as Spider-Man, a foreshadowing of his later career as a Marvel Comics illustrator. He rejected the comic style of drawing a couple of years later, citing it as “too stylized” and “exaggerated”, which was contrary to his training early on. At the age of 17, Marko began working professionally as an illustrator. He mostly produced black and white drawings for tabletop rpg companies such as White Wolf, Inc. and FanPro Games. via.
Marko has produced a large body of cover art, as well as promotional designs, character concepts, and interior artwork for Marvel.
