The Art of René Campbell

Artist(s) Drawing
The general art blog of René Campbell, a 20 year-old female currently residing in a little city in South Australia called Adelaide. I study Marine Biology by day, work as a bartender by night, and draw everywhere and anywhere inbetween!

I post my finished pieces of artwork and drawings, sketches, works in progress, photography and thoughts. I will also tend to reblog things that inspire me or what I enjoy. If you want to see nothing but my artwork, you can find it here or through the links below.
NOTE: I do not take commissions at this time and most certainly do not take art requests. Thankyou.

Animation comparing 'Deceiver' with the new coloured version I’m working on (~25% completion).
Will update with proper comparisons when I’m finished :)

But… isn’t this fantastic, brilliant art piece finished?!?

I wish! It looks like it from a far but I’m only about 25% through it!

Getting some highlights in. Still a while to go yet!

Was practicing my Lion facepaint for a party. A little too orange for my liking but oh well.

Tree hoppers have worked their way to being some of my favourite invertebrates. So much diversity in shape and colour. They look like little Pokémon characters!

Galvantula process.

Houndoom process.

Took some advice from RJ (Arvalis) and decided to re-evaluate how I shaded the metal (the legs and torso compared to the rather over-the-top fore wing). I’m planning on adding more textures, dents and scratches that also show fleshy tissue underneath for a more ‘organic’ look.Due to university restrictions and family issues, I won’t be working on much art for the next week or so.

One more assignment and two exams left and I’m free until next semester!
