I'm Seán Hogan, and welcome to Unsuccesful.Tumblr.Com.
An aspiring Irish artist, I am currently studying Model Making in IADT. With future hopes of breaking into the comic book and gaming industry, I have a great interest in art and all things nerdy.

 

The elephant I made for the start of my current college module.

Made him from super sculpy, and he was pretty fun to make! Friend of mine made a quick fez when I was making him, so I had to have the finished piece wear one!

Super quick life drawing sketches with a brush pen. Not looming for correct anatomy, just practicing with the pen and observational skills.

More pages from my portfolio.This is a relatively knew idea for a story I had, and I think it turned out pretty darn cool. Protestors. An elephant. A capuchin monkey. What more do you want.

I think the pages came out pretty consistent, and panel layouts wok well enough for the most part. However, I am worried that people may get confused and think it’s a protest full of ants or something and be think a door crushed them all. Because, they’re not ants. The size difference would be mental sure.

Thanks for having a look! All the best to you and yours

Comic book pages that I did for my portfolio. Tis Cú Chulainn! He awakens from death to protect Ireland from dark magic and impossible evil! Or something like that. I actually have the whole story planned out in my head, you should see what happens next….

The pages are fairly inconsistent in quality. Pages 1 and four being the obvious best, though I do like the bottom of page 2 (though it doesn’t jive with the rest of the page).

Anywhooo. Thanks for looking!

The third comic I drew for our comic book module in college. It’s about Tom. He’s a squirrel.

Pretty darn happy with this one. You spend so much time worrying about your drawings, your art style, if you’re improving, that when you actually draw something that you think is genuinely pretty good it puts you at ease. If for a little while.

Of course, an absolute pile of problems with this again. Tom changes appearance quite often. Page layouts on 2 and 3 are a bit shitty. Due to time constraints I wasn’t able to add as much background stuff, falling leaves, snow etc, as I would of liked. But hey.

Overall though, I’m really happy. Thinking of finishing Tom’s story. I hope you liked it!

Long time no post! So recently we did a comic module in college (best 3 weeks I’ve spent in college).

We were tasked with drawing a short comic based on an established property. So I picked Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us, which you should all play. T’is mighty.

Anyways. So I went for a realistic-ish art style for this, something I’ve been struggling illustrating. The drawing varies in quality quite a bit. I scraped the whole of page 2 at one stage and retried due to not being happy with it. But I think there’s flashes of my drawing coming on. The first panel on page 3 is one I’m pretty proud of. 
Lots of room to learn though. Plenty of wasted space on page 2. Joel’s face changes appearance drastically. But what can one do. Doing is better than perfect.
This was also my first go at colouring a comic page. It’s a bit of a balls up but I did my best. It’s super relaxing to do too. 

Thanks for taking the time to look and read!

Very late getting this up! Final first year project from college. Had to make a model of a building from Temple Bar in Dublin. I was given Rory’s Tackle Shop. Pretty happy with how it turned out, injected plenty of personality into it.

Classic Iron Man, sorry about the blurriness! Also, Iron Man 3 was god awful. Anyways =]
