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.

Pokemon Pokecenter Imagined in Modern 3D by Evan Liaw

This is so friggin’ cool.

I always imagine Pokémon in a Sci-Fi setting. This is awesome!

Korean artist Jee Young Lee’s beautiful dreamscapes are living proof that you don’t need Photoshop or even a large studio space to create amazing surreal images. She creates all of these scenes by hand in a room that is only 3.6 x 4.1 x 2.4 meters and then inserts herself into the pictures. Some of these self portraits represent her own experiences, dreams and memories, while others represent traditional Korean folk tales and legends.

Apparently I won’t be popular on the internet unless I draw some sort of fanart that consists of Twitch Plays Pokémon or Elsa from Disney’s Frozen.

The Helix never bothered me anyway.

Ready for third year! Only one of these was brand new from my uni, the rest were second hand or cheap from the bookshop :)



Go there, and do as the instructions say.
When my art was stolen, I got the post reported, and it was taken down. Don’t worry, it doesn’t just take down the sources post, but it takes down all the reblogged posts too.
Please give this a reblog, many artists out there may not know this is here.
And remember, ask permission before sharing, or don’t post it.

Some more progress.

Twitch Plays Pokemon is infuriating.

What are your favourite shiny Pokemon and why?

After getting my shiny Scolipede today, I’m on the hunt for my next shiny to breed. The way I see it though, I think about 85% of shiny Pokemon look worse than their original counterparts (granted I’d be happuy to have any one of them in my possession).

I heard somewhere that shinies are randomly generated. This I believe, because some shinies lack any real difference, some of the colours clash, some colours look ‘muddy,’ some colours are just thrown together randomly, some look like a sepia or cross process filter were put on them, some look like they were bleached and some actually hurt my eyes to look at.

Right now I’ve got my eyes on a shiny Sceptile, but even then I don’t think it’s fantastic. Scolipede looks great because it’s colours are complimentary and actually make sense given it’s toxicity. 

So, out of curiosity, what are your favourite shinies and why?

After about 8 boxes I finally got one! I wasn’t even paying attention, I just looked down and saw my shiny. I had been trying on and off for it for months.

Terrible IV’s, but Jolly nature and Speed Boost ability. Can’t wait to evolve it into Scolipede! :)
Realistic Scizor Concept; I apologise for the phone quality.

It’s 3 am and I’m thinking about what Thesis I am going to propose for my honours degree (which is in another year).

I wish my brain would shut off sometimes.
