Now: Exploring Visual Art with Sunny Lim

by Sunny Lim, Aspiring Concept Artist

Currently I have found myself exploring the visual arts.

Art has been my longest hobby and I have expanded it across many types of media, from markers, watercolor, charcoal, acrylic, and even sculpting, making art is always something that gets my hands working. Lately art has been more on the back burner as college has left me with little time for my own creations, but being a part of Digital Animation Production at the Technological University of the Shannon has given me the opportunity to learn a new artistic skill , animation has always been something I wanted to try out and get better at and being in a course that has me applying all my previous art knowledge into something new has sparked my interest in the visual arts again while combining other forms of media I haven’t thought to try like audio and VFX.

Right now I’m building my portfolio in mainly 3D modelling and by putting extra effort into other creative areas by exploring styles that I wouldn’t normally go for, like character creation for example.

Snapping off the main path

by James O’Donovan, aspiring 3D modeler and animator.

I snapped this view of the Rock of Cashel while on the path leading up to its main entrance. I noticed a more adventurous path through the limestone, bushes, and grass leading up rather than using the road, so took a picture. I can imagine a nice camera pan up through it all revealing the beautiful ruin.

My job is not to be easy on people. My job is to make them better.

Lots to admire from Ali Abdaal as he explains fulfillment from writing routinely. His advice forms a major justification for the Media Writing for Animation module on the Clonmel Digital Campus. #ShowYourWork

Too Much Screentime

by @topgold, Content Wrangler.

Around 2012, something began to go wrong in the lives of teens. Depression, self-harm & suicide all increased sharply. The increase occurred at the same time social media use moved from optional to virtually mandatory among teens.

Across the American frontier with your two wives

by @topgold Content Wrangler

Wednesday, June 3. The crew consisted of four Canadians, two of whom were attended by their wives, and a German; we were accompanied also by an Indian, who had acquired the title of English Chief, and his two wives, in a small canoe, with two young Indians; his followers in another small canoe. These men were engaged to serve us in the twofold capacity of interpreters and hunters. This chief has been a principal leader of his countrymen who were in the habit of carrying furs to Churchhill Factory, Hudson’s Bay, and till of late very much attached to the interests of that company. These circumstances procured him the appelation of the English Chief.
