Peacekeeper by ReneCampbellArt
Illustrative interpretation of the Snow Leopard. Did this one a bit differently by using black felt tip pen (rather than ballpoint) and black pencil for the midtone shadows.

App. 3.5 hours | Enhanced in Photoshop

Available for purchase as prints, shirts and phone cases via my Society6.

Realistic Scizor WIP by ReneCampbellArt
Realistic Scizor WIP
Yep, I'm still alive. And yes, my favourite three-Pokémon per type series is still going (although it's been 9 months since I did Skarmory).

As proof, here's a work in progress sneak-peak for Scizor, which stands at about half complete. So far I’ve been inspired by reptiles, crustaceans, wasps, mantids, and the aliens from District 9. Also, I haven't forgotten the 'eye spots' or whatever. They come in last!

Expect to see the final version submitted in the next fortnight, and two smaller drawings as well. Been busy with Honours at uni and I get distracted easily nowadays. Got plans for bigger illustrations in the future too!

Will delete later!
Ethical Concern by ReneCampbellArt
Ethical Concern
Finished this quick drawing in under two hours. I visited an Animal Welfare Day at uni the other week, to become informed about the use of animals in science and the ethics involved, and to receive my animal welfare certificate. Came up with this concept which is a play on the theme. Of course the interpretation is up to you! 

Black felt tip pen and HB pencil on A4
Aries by ReneCampbellArt

I never usually upload unrefined drawings and call it a day. It certainly is hard avoiding getting stuck into details but it is refreshing. Maybe I’ll re-visit this one day and expand on it, but for now I’m glad to just get some quick art out my system :) Also boring title is boring.

Photoshop CS5 + Wacom Cintiq 24 HD | App. 3 hours | Original size: 2300 x 2300 pixels (didn’t want to upload it full size because dat choppy brushwork). Reference used for skull.

The Lady Lionfish by ReneCampbellArt
The Lady Lionfish
Finally done! Been working on this on and off since April last year. I kept losing motivation to finish it because I messed up some parts (like the facial proportions and the composition) and life got very busy. But, it's done now!

Also it's a big pain trying to scan something that's larger than A3 size into an A4 scanner and stitch it together. Anyway, this lovely lady will be framed and put up for sale in my art show.

Model reference; Anja Rubik: Link. 

Derwent Studio pencils, black felt tip pen, white gel pen on Kraft-coloured Stonehenge paper (50 cm x 38 cm).
App. 30 hours.
