Ponderer by ReneCampbellArt

Illustrative interpretation of the fantail goldfish. Been a while since I've drawn one of these!

Drawn with Micron felt tip pens and Copic markers on Moleskine paper | App. 4 hours.

Flying Fish by ReneCampbellArt
Flying Fish
Drawing of a flying fish/humming bird hybrid that I whipped up last night (with modifications to the anatomy of course).  Spruced it up a little bit by putting my huge array of Photoshop texture brushes to good use by adding a simple background.

Quite fond of this quick little Hummingbird/Flying Fish guy :) Will add into my Society6 shop the coming days, as I think it would be a good addition to shirts and tote bags.

Back to thesis writing!

Copic markers, black and white pen on A3 paper | Background done in Photoshop | App. 1 hour

Realistic Aggron Concept by ReneCampbellArt
Realistic Aggron Concept

As some of you know, I've been working on my Realistic Pokémon Series, where I draw my favourite three Pokémon per-type with a more realistic approach in regards to design and anatomy. It has taken some time, but I certainly have not neglected the series in any way.

Aggron will be my third favourite Steel Type before I move on. One night I was struggling up with concepts so I drew this in my sketch book to figure out how the head works. I based it on a variety of Ceratopsians and am excited to do the full digital render in the coming weeks.

Thought I would share and as usual, and will scrap this later. Drawn with black ballpoint pen.

Carcinus maenas by ReneCampbellArt
Carcinus maenas

Carcinus maenas

The European shore crab. Drawn for the methods component of my Honours thesis. 
I don't ever use stippling techniques. It is very time consuming but the results are effective!

Black felt tip pen on A3 | App. 5 hours | Drawn from a collected specimen

Realistic Pokemon: Gothita by ReneCampbellArt
Realistic Pokemon: Gothita

Crying because I got assigned to draw Gothita in the ‘r/pokemon draws Pokémon’ event on Reddit. 

I HATE the Gothita line, and I’m generally more fond of the final evolutions in each line rather than the first or ‘baby’ evolutions. So I wasn’t happy when I Googled number 574 haha. I was going to avoid drawing it realistically simply because I dislike the design that much and couldn’t really think of a feasible way around it without making it super creepy. But then I saw it as a challenge and here’s the early interpretation for it so far, being based on owls (because humans looked horribly creepy). 

Gothita apparently stares at ‘ghosts’ so much it doesn’t feel any attacks. Wanted to accentuate the creepy eyes (but the white around the eyes almost made me cringe, so I made them more owl-like). I also think feathers were a decent solution to the ‘gothic lolita clothing and hair’ that this line has, while bird forelimbs work pretty well given their lack of digits. And small beaks for their really odd ‘lips.’

I’d imagine as Gothita evolves they’d get slightly more humanoid-bird like. I even sketched realistic concepts for Gothorita and Gothitelle just to see if I could make this concept work for each design.

So yeah, here's a creepy, owl/bird, Furby thing.
