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.

Scolipede progress. I call it the ‘Centaurpede.’

The UN has predicted Adelaide to be the world’s hottest city tomorrow.

Good thing I work behind a bar. Going to need all the ice cubes to keep cool.

Roger Dean

Unf I love Roger Dean’s surreal landscapes.

I am so terrible at environment backgrounds! I don’t understand perspective or scale or composition or colour or atmosphere or the lasso tool or photo textures or matte painting or using more than two brushes out of the hundreds I’ve downloaded. I need to practice.

Starting all the shiny invertebrate details :)
Time to start shading and patterns :)

45°C today (113°F) with 45 tomorrow and 46 Thursday. Welcome to summer in Oz.

Lots of awesome thunder and lightning in the National Park near my house. Hope it doesn’t set the hillside on fire.

Nicole Andrijevic & Tanya Schultz is an art-duo who takes sugar, pigment, polystyrene, wax, modeling clay, paper, plastic, found objects, wire, beads, glitter, and almost whatever else they can get their hands on to create a literal Candyland in the middle of the gallery floor.

Illustrative Birds by René Campbell

I tend to draw birds in this style more than other animals. It must have something to do with the geometric intricacies in feathers and wings.

Mediums include ballpoint and felt-tip pens, coloured pencils or digital paintings.
