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.

The LEGO Movie was awesome! Everything was awesome!

Some more progress. The colours aren’t that saturated, I blame it mostly on the lighting in this room.

Anonymous said: Do you allow people to display your work on clothing and sell it if your name is properly displayed on the clothing with your artwork. (Curious wanting to sell shirts to raise money for my school). Thanks a bunch!

No I don’t allow it, regardless of whether my name is on there or not. In fact, if people were selling my work with my name on it and I wasn’t making a profit I’d find that somewhat unfair (plus there’s some sort of Copyright infringement going on there as well). I’ve already had people illegally selling my artwork (they removed my signature) on Tee Shirts in markets in the Ukraine.

I get offered a lot to merchandise my artwork and always reject the offer. The companies/individuals are overseas and it’s difficult for me to monitor just exactly what they’re doing with my artwork and what profits I make from it. It’s nice that the shirts would be supporting your school, but they won’t be supporting me as the artist apart from the ‘recognition’ factor. You can buy some Tees from my Society6 account (and in the future, Etsy and Redbubble) but it’s probably for the best that you commission a design from an artist and give them profit from the sales or it really defeats the purpose.

Work in progress, still really early stages.

I will get this tattooed on my bpdy

IF YOU DO PLZ HAVE THEM SWITCH IT SO THE DNA IS CORRECT. RIGHT-HANDED HELICES, PEOPLE!!!!!!!

As the artist of this (and even though I study Biology whoops) I’m aware I got the chirality wrong but I’ve been too lazy to rotate it until now.Unfortunately this drawing has gone viral and I’ve made hundreds of dollars selling this version on my print account plus heaps of people get this version as a tattoo. I’m certain since most people aren’t chemists they probably don’t care. I feel a bit guilty that I didn’t simply rotate it the day I found out the chirality was wrong (a few hours after upload) and now people have the wrong version as a permanent copy on their skinA biology group said they used it for their shirts and sent me a picture of it rotated though, which was cool and somewhat embarrassing.~Swaghetti Yolognaise.

Does anyone know how to report images on Redbubble? Someone is trying to make money from my 'Fabric of Life' but I don't have an account.

It seems like their whole portfolio is stolen artwork :(

Yay! Now all I have to do are the wings *sigh*

Would anyone be interested if I started a Live Stream account?

Someone on Reddit wanted to know how Tri-Jaw’s jaws closed, so I drew a quick side-view diagram.

Even though I designed this creature over three years ago, frontal view is still really hard to depict.

Edit: Dual-Jaw or Split-Jaw would be its correct name. Doesn’t sound as cool though!

Wooh not far off being done!
More lecture doodling. I shall call it ‘Tri-Jaw.’ 

Loosely inspired by one of my favourite childhood movies, Tremors! Check it out if you haven’t yet!
Slowly progressing. I think I need to fix that leg.
