Are there any artists on here that would like to vent their salt about mediocre Youtube artists? or anything art related?
Discuss the ones you like/hate/don't get/ etc..

No. 183498

HC Brown is prolly the most annoying obnoxious mediocre artist with 100K subs I've ever come across on youtube. Her art is very tumblr & stiff, I dont understand how she even became relevant. Her calarts rants is prolly what made me dislike her the most.

I think she became relevant because she posted her same face syndrome video and it got a shit ton of views, same with her Anatomy mistakes that young artists make.
Both kept getting recommended to me, I couldn't get away from them

On a different note,to add to the discussion; the only artists that are worth watching on Youtube are Audra Auclair and like, Iraville(they don't upload much tho). Joysan is also really pleasant/ I like art and her vlogs, same with Fran Meneses. Ashiyaart and pearfleur do some pretty stuff. An underrated gem is rabbitfears who does some really incredible artwork, how they're not super popular is beyond me.

sketchynatalia and Juicy ink are ok
Jacquelindeleon and happyDartist are ok too but both their art suffers severely from same face syndrome.
Jellie bee is eh, tumblr artsyle and draws alot of SU. Greywick is a tumblrina(agender pansexual (they/them)) has a large following and a heavy chibi/tumblr artstyle and draws mostly OCs/Dan and phil/markiplier/jackcepticeye etc.. fanart/.Their art is decent

Mediocre tier - I can't stand Baylee Jae or Holly hearts art(whos basically a Baylee Jae wannabe)
lemiacrescent and HC Brown are mediocre, whiny, and annoying as fuck and have figured out art drama videos = 100k+ subcribers

No. 183514

I actually like HC Brown. Her blunt honesty is refreshing. I can agree that her art sucks though… She has knowledge and skill but in the end her artstyle sucks and looks stiff.

No. 183541

Omg anon yes! I loathe baylee & her basic ass art, which begs the question.. How do any of these popular artist not learn about fluidity & anatomy? You'd think they'd practice their flaws to improve, but they do not? Maybe they really think their art looks perfect idk but it bugs me how they don't take critics as help but as " hating ".

OP's video kept popping up in my recommendations
When I finally started watching it I got hardcore HC Brown vibes holy cow

Honestly, I haven't heard of her until her CalArts rant, which was comedy gold, to be honest

I don't think I've seen too much of Baylee's work, I've only seen her copic marker alternatives video and she was so damn annoying
She kept complaining about how big or how small the writing on the caps was, it's insane

No. 183717

How the hell does Baylee have a job in animation and afford all these fancy tools but she can't even draw? She literally hoards everything and probably has double of each copic marker and yet she still gets sent alternatives to them to test out and there's honestly not a big difference in her quality of work with those crayola vs copic videos she always makes.

Sketchynatalia is just alright as well. Personally I can't stand her voice and she has a very nondescript face, but her art isn't bad. Not interesting, but not bad.

Lemiacresent's coloring is beautiful, but she's got hardcore horse-sameface going on and her OCs look really obnoxious.

Holly is just a miserable bridge troll. I saw a thumbnail with her face on it and the first thing that came to mind was "female Quasimodo". She's prolific, but I hope she soon realizes that she's got zero fanbase beyond equally greasy teen fujoshis.

This video was in my suggested for so long that I broke down and watched it. I've never wanted to choke the "Your teacher wants you to learn the rules before you break them," line into someone so much as I did when watching this.

She's so full of herself, and this drawing is horrifying - the amount of asskissing in the comments is astounding. "My teachers dont get that its just my style too!!!1 I luv ur art!"


I also have legitimate issues with Proko though, he's a cow in his own right.

I agree with the other anon, most of her paintings aren't that bad at all? The technicolor is not my preference but that's about it.
This one freaked me out though:

No. 183934

Hmm, I see. I find her art extremely off-putting but it's interesting to hear what you guys have to say.
For me, I feel odd about the motives. I guess, internet cats paintings don't float my boat. And I don't like the paint application, it looks random to me in a trial and error kinda way. Also makes me feel like she tries hard to avoid defined shapes. I don't have anything against this sort of style, it just rubs me the wrong way in this case. And I think the colours are childish. With the cat motives it's all too cheesy for my taste and the animal colours which often are realistic and the colours around seem to clash in my eyes in most paintings. But that's all subjective. Maybe was a little quick with "atrocious"..

Kek, I was waiting for this thread to pop up.
I don't understand these art youtubers, their art is usually mediocre. They give career advice without actually having a "career".

I do actually work in the art field and I'm shocked by their popularity, most of them are college dropouts (so they don't even have a degree, which would be fine if that did not reflect on their lack of skill) talking like professionals while drawing in a how to draw manga style.

Holly Brown has a lot of knowledge theory-wise but for some reason her art is so melty and doesn't reflect any of that. If you try to critique her art (how she draws jaws too big, necks too thick) she gets extra defensive in the comments. But then teaches her audience to "take critique". I'm so confused.

The thing with Holly is that she's just parroting what more skilled people are saying. Nothing of what she says comes from her own actual experiences. I doubt she's even sold anything face-to-face at a con. She seems kind of socially awkward.

No. 184037

File: 1489750710538.jpg (570.54 KB, 940x1288, comic.jpg)

That is true. She also kept going on about how thumbnailing comics isn't necessary, how she's so good at backgrounds (and never skips on them unlike anime artists) and inking, etc. but look at how she placed the characters on the top. They're sinking in the panel. She eyeballs her perspective constantly so her backgrounds are always deformed, and in this page we can see she herself skips on drawing them half the time. Even her inking isn't good because she doesn't use thinner pens for background elements, which makes everything flat. In that middle panel, the two characters completely blend into the scenery, it's bad inking.

There was also a time when Holly tried to animate and would tell her audience that animation is SOO easy, it's just time consuming!! well… search her animations in her channel for a laugh.

Sorry for rant, it's just I'm afraid they're creating this mentality in kids to disregard their art teachers, don't get a degree because "you don't need one in this field so that makes university useless" and draw bad anime because fuck everyone's opinions (surprise, anime art in western countries will hardly get you any work, specially if it's to the quality of OP's video)

like the anon said in the other thread, i too feel very bad for her. She's clearly in a dark place- her art is the only thing that keeps her going.

No. 184132

i've said it before in another thread and i'll say it again: the marker of a lazy artist is that (almost) everything is face-on

these faces have about as much emotion in them as the blank wall in that back panel to start with - sigh guy looks like he's doing some office-style fourth-wall-break talking to the audience moment

also why do all of her lines look like someone put them through a vector program set to make everything as few lines as possible? why are some lines (sleeve of right guy in top panel) just straight out missing?

the figures are more convincingly wooden than the damn wall panels…

She says she converts her inks into vectors for whatever reason. What is the point of inking traditionally at all then…

No. 184137

I've worked traditionally​ in ink for years and I honestly don't get why anyone would vectorize it. Vectorizing your ink work doesn't automatically make it good, it just picks up every flaw in your lines. Like, she couldn't be bothered to smooth out any of those lines either when she was done. Drop an anchor point and fix it. It's just the lazy way out to me imo

No. 184174

My guess would be that she had a rough sketch and thought live tracing it would be a shortcut to actually inking it. Which would probably explain why part of the sleeve didn't show up in the one panel because the line was most likely drawn weird enough so it wasn't picked up by the filter. :/ When I was in college, a lot of people I knew used this shortcut on some of their projects when they were running out of time because they procrastinated lol

I'm surprised this video wasn't posted from Holly. Probably the single most self-absorbed piece of shit "tutorial" I've ever watched. Does she really think she has room to bitch at artists who are JUST learning to draw when she can't even sketch basic fucking anatomy lmao?

She's got a huge ego for someone who has absolutely no idea what they're doing. It took two years after intensly studying anatomy to see an improvement in my own art, she's talking out of her ass if she claims to be such an expert at it but consistently churns out crap like this…

Apparently the cure to same face syndrome is giving characters the same Sloth face she has.

No. 184993

Does she even know what sameface syndrome is?
It just means all the characters look the same. All she does is go on about how the first drawing is of a girl who "looks dumb", but the second one "maybe looks smart". Both are generic and ugly.
It would've been decent if she had just drawn like two or three girls with the same expression/face shape, and then two or three girls with different ones to compare.
Useless video.

Those asses are made of cardboard

I noticed in every community there's usually the super politically correct people which make up the majority and then there are a couple of edgelords that drive in the part of the audience that is anti SJW and too edgy. Holly is filling that role here and that's why her videos are popular. Nobody ever actively compliments her art that much, only her personality or her fujoshit comic characters.

She always complains about 12 year olds but I recall people telling their ages once in a stream and her entire audience was 14-16.

No. 185030

Okay I found this video and I can't get over it.

So this is the draft of her comic Purgatory, she worked on this while attending art school which from personal experience is not an easy thing to do, with school being so time consuming. She hates it so she rebooted it to the new "much better version" but honestly… compare it to her final comic. How does someone get worse? and she has the entire day to work on this thing now, good god.

Sure, the anatomy here already was melty and off, but it's visually pretty interesting. Even without the dramatic lighting and colors it has this goth comic style, the backgrounds actually provide ambiance and aren't just "there" and the characters are actually expressive, instead of giving the same smug Jay Leno face in every panel.

As much as she wants to claim she's so hard working compared to this version of the comic she's slacking big time. Even in her old, lazy "white background" panels she did interesting effects to suggest space (4:13).

Even the comments on this video agree lol people would rather read this version

you wouldn't be bitter if you got off your ass and marketed yourself aggressively enough to get that kind of fanbase. not white-knighting her, but success as an artist doesn't (except in those one in a lifetime cases) just get handed to you for doing your thing. the difference between a successful artist and a good artist is all marketing.

I'm guessing that youtube money's gonna dry up soon.

Ah yes, the good old "generic anime sameface" strawman every self-important Tumblr artist wants to beat up to seem more original and professional. I thought these died out by 2012 but apparently someone still thinks she's a genius for making this groundbreaking remark. Ironically the ones doing these "comparisons" have a huge case of the sameface syndrome themselves, they just don't draw in anime style. Her case isn't an exception.

Don't even get me started on Baylee fucking Jae.

She has 'in my opinion' and 'stiff' blacklisted, saying that "she knows her art is stiff and people can stop telling her about it".
She had to suddenly pay like 18,000$ because of taxes, could pay it off on the spot with no problems but joked about "I'm poor now haha" while sitting on her fat ass in her fat house buying new shit every day. Have you seen her toy room? It's completely stuffed to the ceiling with expensive shit.
Also she used to have a patreon but has it closed/uses it as a 'tip jar' because her fans are about 10 years old and can't give her any patreon bucks, so YouTube is her only big thing now.

Obviously I am damn jealous of her, to this day I refuse to accept how rich she got with her piss poor art.

There's a whole load of milk from Jellie concerning her former print business (Beespoke) and a robbery that apparently took place during last year's MCM where she 'had most of her convention stock stolen and two suitcases' from wherever it was she was staying and then she refused to tell anyone where it was so they could avoid it.

I have waited for an opportunity to rant about Baylee for ages.

Another thing that makes me hate her is how she lets her cats treat her drawing equipment and her drawings. She lets them sit on and walk over every thing she draws, in one of her vlogs she watched and laughed about how one of her cats pawed and scratched at her cintiq, I think that's when I lost it.
How can you be so careless about your expensive art supplies?
Oh wait she's rich enough to have a whole room dedicated to her cat's litter boxes and one cat stand with the occasinal trash lying around.

I hate to admit that I kind of used to like her old vlogs, she seemed genuinely nice, even if a little annoying (most terrible laugh I've ever heard), but then I discovered her art channel. Felt like a joke tbh.

Pic related is an original artwork which her parents decided would look professional enough to frame and display on a wall at their house in Arizona, which they are renting out. There's more of Baylee's art hanging on those walls too.

but uh

holly made an animatic too, apparently, considering it just showed up in my suggesteds and fuck me gently with a chainsaw it's so bad. like, it's obvious it was a rush job, with the steep decline in quality by the end, but in general it's just… incredibly poor? shots are framed weirdly, some of the segments she seemed to put more effort into to appear actually "animated" are confusing choices, she seems to have no sense of syncing it to the beat (the mis-timed clapping? tip toppest of keks), the bizarre change in aspect ratio halfway through, the inconsistency with the backgrounds even when the shot of the character remains the same?? it's an absolute shitshow all around and it makes me mad reeeeeee holly get out of my fandom reeeeee

Like she decided to put horribly drawn backgrounds in a animatic when you barely ever need to show those at that stage, and whens he tries to show something "animated" she has all the layers underneath still showing so it looks like a god damn mess.

The way characters are cut off triggers me (1:51). What kind of shots are these? even in those where the character looks decently placed, once it moves parts of it are cut off. You need to have the entire action in the shot, Holly, not just the first frame. The poses are so stiff too, there's so much room for more movement… the fight scene killed me.

yeah and i don't understand how? and the copious "haha i thought this was you singing at first holly"s in the comments as well… i don't get it, how can anyone look at this and think its anywhere near the definition of "good" or "ok"

may i refer you to this (>>183921) post anon, it explains everything you need to know

and the 13 yos are consistent, to boot. even as sketchy train-of-thought WIP ideas, their linework is leaps and bounds better – as opposed to holly's who's so utterly lacking in confidence in her lines that she has to trace over every single line she puts down on a piece of paper upwards of a dozen fucking times, among so much else. it's kinda sad, really. especially considering that learning how to be confident in your line placement is one of the easiest ways (imo) to instantly see improvement in the quality of your art, and how much bad art she shits out.

(also pls b my friend anon, none of my friends caught the heathers bug and i'd love to have someone to chat about it with ;__;)

never fear anon, galactibun just re-branded/jumped to a new channel

>The faces here, being rushed, are better than the ones she usually does
idk mane those profile views in the boiler room are pretty fucking questionable.
the two other things that really fucking trigger me about the animatic are the fact that she seems to have no understanding of what kind of skirt veronica is wearing (i.e. a tennis skirt) and how that kind of fabric would drape over the figure (it looks like she's wearing a petticoat under her fucking skirt honestly), and all the messy half-hearted scribbling to imply shading. seen throughout the whole video but especially on the crowd in the bleachers. just fucking take a mid tone grey and a big brush size and shade it reeeeeeee
it's so messy and awful looking and just shading with colour as opposed to lines would make it look so much neater (and probs be quicker). but then again if she doesn't scribble we've got nothing to distract us from her shoddy linework so :^)

Wtf is this… she sounds so insecure in this video, like she has no idea what she's talking about (spoilers: she doesn't). Her method is so wishy washy and not helpful at all. She's also skipping foreshortening and focusing only on each element of the face and not the whole. How are her followers supposed to figure that out?

Also, the sketch is terrible. The "perspective" is very subtle there, and the entire face is crooked.

To the art farmers, I'm also an artist, with an art job, and I'm not jealous at all of these people. Sure, I would love to have that income by doing jack shit, but these people are not making money from their art, they're making money from their youtube fame. Envying them is like envying any other youtuber with no particular skill. They're famous because they provide entertainment to some, and because their watchers are even worse at art than them so they're easily impressed. One day they will wash out like every other youtuber because they're mildly famous, not pewdiepie famous, and like in any other job, without any experience in the real world and subpar art, though tit.

One of my favorite artists replied to an anon who said they felt untalented whenver they tried to draw and they basically said "I don't believe in talent" and it really struck me, because yeah, FUCK talent. Some people don't start from the bottom, but that doesn't mean they also put in their share of hard work to get better. I've come to hate to downplay all the hard work my favorite artists put in to get where they currently are by just saying that it's talent. No, it's 99% hardwork and 1% talent. I respect all the time and effort they've put into their art, and I'm not going to dismiss it as simply talent. No one should give up just because they aren't good right off the bat.

i was watching istebrak's early video on accepting critiques. She said something along the lines of, you can't use the excuse, "I intended it to be that way."

Like, if you don't know what you're doing your intention doesn't mean shit.

These people seriously need to spend a single week with an art director. Like, in a real world work environment your art directors or clients can be just as "mean" as these art teachers.

Your audience isn't the end all be all but I take everything said under some consideration. Because, guess what? Your audience is a client!

Why not fess up and admit to your mistakes? Why not tweet, "I dun goofed, I'll try harder next time!" Hell, put in a, "thank you for the constructive critisim"

Actually laughed out loud at this. Brilliant.

And I completely agree. I feel like "thanks for the feedback" would be a much better response all around - more professional, less personal, and to be honest, more passive aggressive. If she's offended by the comment and wants to let them know, that says it all. Her actual replies come off as a childish public tantrum.

I love Istebrak. She's a bit asshole-ish IMHO, but damn, she knows what she's talking about and doing, so she gets a pass.

I think she only teaches online, AFAIK.

Her videos helped me a lot with basic facial structure/shading and anatomy in general. She's a great artist.

I just wish sometimes that she had a more amicable approach, she can scare some noobs with her harshness, and well, that defeats the purpose of a teacher, IMO.

Yeah, I think she's a good answer to someone who likes Holly's bluntness but wants someone with the skill to back it up (and you know, actual advice). I agree, I was put off by her at first but she's actually pretty sweet. Her google+ community is also really accessible, they offer some pretty solid advice.
Though, I'm also someone how had my best therapy session when my therapist bluntly said, "You know…you're really depressing to be around. Just stop dwelling on it."

I double checked, she was a professor, she mentioned it a a few times (though she has so many long videos).

I don't think she gets the expression. It just means if you polish something poorly structured it's going to remain poorly structured.

Take her video. Adding all that paint doesn't fix the fact she didn't structure that face right in the first place. No matter how much she polishes this, it's going to remain fundamentally turdy.

No shame in a turdy painting, but omg, you can't learn by doing the stuff you're already good at! Aguh!

LavenderTowne seems sweet and means well but she's obviously way too inspired by Tim Burton and has hardcore same face syndrome throughout her work. Her videos are entertaining though.

No. 186118

If I remember correctly (I watched this video some weeks ago), her point in this video was that you have to consider the character's story, i.e origins, when you draw them. In her example, I think she talked about a character who comes from a desert (iirc). The one on the right is the first design and she deems it bad. She thinks the one of the left, the new design is better because shes's thought about the features and why they're the way they are.

All that said, I don't think her art is that good. But that's just personal preference.

No. 186120

Jeez her videos follow me everywhere, but eh her art is nothing special
It's kinda funny whenever I see the thumbnail, on the right it's pretty much symbolic of the deviantart times when everyone was making kawaii neko-chan OCs and then on the left is now the prevalent tumblr style - both are shit but I appreciate the effort

his primary focus isn't anime, though. He went to art school and has been drawing for many more years than most of the Youtubers so I'm pretty certain he knows his style and works with it in Miki Falls and his personal comics. What he does for Youtube is just for fun if it's anime/chibi.

It's always supplies this, Copics that. It seems like she makes more videos more about art supplies than actual art. Aside from the markers you rarely see her use anything else more than a few times, then it's onto the next thing.

I've been keeping my eye on her for years now and it seems she hasn't even improved at all. She's still shitty. Baylee is the Michelle Phan of the YT art community. Everything that comes out of her mouth sounds like a damn advertisement. Sounds really disingenuous considering that a vast majority of her fanbase are children who can't just openly go out and buy all the stuff she shoves in their face.

No. 187186

She has to show off her copic markers to make up for the fact that she's 26, and draws like goddamn 13 year old.

Art Supplies don't mean shit when digital art is the future, and people are already creating amazing works of art with a ratchet version of Sai and a cheap Chinese tablet.

Ironically, it seems like Baylee is terrified of trying out digital art.

No. 187392

>do other more talented youtube artist actually like her or do they tolerate her?

I always wondered that too

On another note,awhile back I watched one of her vlogs, she went to an artist meetup in Vancouver hosted by AudraAuclair, but in it Baylee seemed so out of place. I mean everyone was nice to her but she kinda just vlogged/kept to herself with every now and then talking to them. It was weird seeing her among other artist that are actually skilled.

Copics and drawing markers just seem really outdated to me. Idk. They just feel like an invention for easier coloring before digital art really took off.

No. 187475

I think it's more of the connotations of Copic/marker drawings, than the actual medium themselves. You don't really see a lot of commercial or pro-level work done with them (as far as I know? I can only think of industrial design or concept art mockups done with them). They just seem to be limited to weebs on youtube and relics on DA.

Maybe they're just training wheels for people too scared of water colors but too elitist for digital art?

No. 187477

I don't know about others but as a young weeb who couldn't afford a tablet, but could spend pocket money on a few markers that make totally flat layers of colour 'just like in anime and manga covers' they seemed like the better option. I guess thats what they are popular, and ofc them being from japan helps

I mean, plenty of pro artists defiantly own alcohol markers, but only really seem use them just to lay down quick flat colour or shading to commissions (Like the quick sketch commissions you see at comic cons). Ive never seen a full peice done with JUST markers by a professional artist, trying to blend and work with copics in the way baylee does is imo time consuming and not really what they are made for.

I get that the copic brand is kind of like a 'designer' name that people like to show off on yt and instagram but imo if you want to get into markers the winsor & newton brushe markers are miles better, and cheaper

No. 187480

I was on DA in the 2000s, and the most popular illustrators used Prisma and Copic markers. However most of them have moved on to digital art because its easier, faster, and has a go-back button to fix mistakes. I agree that using using markers is a noob thing to do.

I mean markers are always fun to use, but not professional tier so to speak.

Most traditional materials damage under sun or UV light, acrylic or oils discolor, Paper yellows etc. That's why most museums keep every piece of direct light and companies put original artwork into storage.

That's probably also why digital art is prefered for commercial work nowadays, it's faster and easier to fix. Some clients still like traditional sketches done with marker/watercolor but almost every product is finished digitally nowadays.

I saw someone mentioned her earlier in the thread but is anyone else sick of BananaJamana? I'm just hate watching her at this point.

That video she made a few weeks ago where she was like "I don't know if I can be considered an artist, I'm not good enough~" Was such bullshit.

I get that her schtick is being cutesy and stuff but holy shit she's starting to embarrass herself. If I was sick I would never vlog and keep in cuts of me blowing my nose ~cutely.

It's funny how many of these YouTube "artists" (along with Baylee) are such children. They all collect toys and Disney stuff and generally act like preteens. What's creepier in this situation is Jamie's husband buys her all this stuff and enables this because he collects this stuff too. So weird. DDLG vibes lol.

No. 188329

Honestly, she really isnt that skilled. Of course, she has more skill than the average person but after watching her for a while her lack of actual understanding of art fundamentals is really noticeable. Her realism paintings of people are always off, you can tell she has never studied anatomy or done life drawing sessions and just copies directly from photos for everything she makes. If she took some classes I bet she could improve pretty quick

No. 188330

Yeah it pisses me off how popular those paintings of hers are. Her original stuff is always worse than the photorealism. It seems all circa 2005 deviantArt tier with the "cute faces on inanimate objects" and whatnot.

Her crafts and baking seem to be very good though, at least hell of a lot better than what I could do, it's just the manner she presents them in that drives me nuts. I just wanna see how it's made (which she does generally show off well with minimal amounts of her shoving her face in the camera) but there's always like a solid minute of her at the end posing and acting cutesy with whatever she made and it's just so cringey. Or when she's filming a video and she randomly starts showing off stuff she bought or her husband bought her like… okay, that's nice, why was that necessary?

It's weird how Baylee calls herself a professional artist, yet her medium and art style is like the farthest thing from professional. Like everyone's said, a finished piece using nothing but copics is weird, and I doubt anyone is going to want that Disney-lite style

Seems she's aware enough that her videos (and by extension her art) is looking stale thanks to her declining youtube stats, so she needs to adapt. Won't be surprised if she tries to do something gimmicky instead of trying to improve her actual art.

Do musical artists on youtube count? I wanted to add Ken Ashcorp since I really like a lot of his music but he is a massive drama queen if anyone critiques his music. His excuse is "I do music for fun!!! I don't need critique of any kind!" and it's like… it stops being "just for fun" once you make it a career and become an opening act for bands.

I remember when he disabled comments on all his videos when a few people gave him some concrit that wasn't even rude… I like the guy's stuff but goddamn he can be such a pretentious cunt sometimes.

There is an artist that recently got suspended on Twitter due to false DMCA reports that has blown up on my Twitter feed. He goes by the name of Slugbox, he's just your usual anime hentai artist. After he got suspended on Twitter, some users decided to come out of the woodwork and celebrate their victorious day after being silent for god knows how long about him. Many of them called him a pedophile because he "drew child porn". At first, i thought these were just your typical tumblr SJW spergs spouting words they only know when they hate an artist. But i did discover Slugbox did draw a 9-12 year old character named Vanellope from Wreck-It-Ralph in some NSFW art and NSFW situations. Slugbox said he'll be back in a matter of days and i wanted to document all of the tweets in relation to him.

I can't help but laugh at some of the tweets. They came out of nowhere and it will give me a giggle when he comes back. Won't be surprised to see some of these people triggered or these tweets deleted. Just wanted to share these tweets with ya'll. Enjoy.

Same anon as before. Slugbox is back on Twitter posting regularly again. As for the people i posted earlier, they've been pretty quiet about him. Most of them haven't spoke about him for the past few hours, even a whole day. Some people have theorized that any Slugbox fan who finds these users shitting on him are taking their Twitter accounts down with false DMCA reports. Everyone, of course, is blaming Slugbox and his fanbase. I found one user named Nefepants, who had their Twitter suspended and went to tumblr and blamed Slugbox himself and his fans. The person who reported nefepants told them "I have your IP address uwu". Here are some links if you want a nice little laugh. http://nefepants.tumblr.com/post/161056931454/oh-boy-the-piece-of-shit-who-got-my-twitter http://nefepants.tumblr.com/post/161036936669/so-i-just-found-out-that-multiple-accounts-that-i http://nefepants.tumblr.com/post/161039249664/because-the-asshole-who-reported-my-account-made My favorite is probably how nefe states that Twitter is full of "fucking redneck racists" despite the fact they made a new Twitter account. https://twitter.com/NefeRex

Here's another compile of Tweets i dug up. The picture of the person wearing Slugbox's shirt on the bottom left was a tweet by Slug's friends, if you're curious. The user simply took their image and just voiced their opinion about them wearing it.

No. 192378

One of the tweets (the bolded one in the far left column) is confusing me. Did he draw actual real children (like Shadbase) or IRL adults and underaged characters?

Like, the latter is iffy (I find it creepy when people make fanart/fanfics of IRL people at all, never mind sexual stuff), but the former is full-out disgusting. I'm not sure if there's any laws anywhere that actually cover that though, unless your family decides to sue as defaming your image.

Most people think he got suspended cause he drew porn of Dot from Animaniacs and he also drew porn of Vanellope Von Schweetz from Wreck-It-Ralph. That's what most people say when they mean Slugbox drew "child porn".

He's never drawn porn of actual children, like Shadman. Mostly just fictional cartoon or anime characters. I spoiler'd the picture he drew along a few others, they're all on his Pixiv account. You'll need an account to see them.

you need to get on insta, post twice daily, and tag as many applicable things as possible; use half art tags (#digitalart #animegirl #design) and half popular tags (#makeup #pretty #ootd). only draw fanart until you hit 3k, then you can do what you want. youtubers are really popular in general, and drawing any famous people can catch their eye and get a shout out.

any cartoony or anime style will get attention; its much harder to be liked for real trained skills and paintings, and easier with talents and drawings (compare roberto ferri to mioree). if you colored a traditional drawing digitally, normal people get immensely fascinated by that and like it. make your whole workspace look good before you photograph the drawing.

Sophira Lou's was my favourite. IMO she's the best youtube artist (at least out of the well-known ones) her stuff is pretty solid, sometimes her style can be a bit off but she has some great concepts and uses nice colours. I met her in person at a con and she was super friendly too

No kidding m8. Like, I'm no watercolor expert, but even I know that the way to achieve a smooth lay down of color is to wet the area first and apply the pigments in small increments afterwords. But yeah, her salt over people trying to help her makes me reeeeeeeee

No. 201404

You can achieve smooth layers of color using wet into dry, but you should have enough paint to cover your surface. In Baylee's case, she's using way to small brushes for the surface.It just seems she's trying to use watercolors as if they were markers rather than learning how to apply the medium.

No. 201415

Very true, also the type of brush she's using is one of those aqua brushes, which are meant for painting small sketches or small areas, not covering large areas. Ugh, it's infuriating watching her paint sometimes because it seems like she's refuses to use a bigger brush

No. 201426


I think Sophira Lou's work looks nice because the details hide the anatomy mistakes, but I do agree she's probably the best out of the bunch.

Yeah her art is pretty atrocious, I'm wondering how old she is?
Not surprised HC Brown isn't in it, if she would stop being so unfriendly and drop this bitter bitch persona she could actually get somewhere.
Before she was "famous" I actually thought about befriending her and even buying something from her store(even with the wonky anatomy), but the more I watched her videos the more sour and a hypocrite she grew to be, it was pretty sad to watch but oh well, she doesn't seem like shes gonna change any time soon she's way too far up her own ass

I was curious as to why they don't have someone that's y'know actually really good like >>184135
but then I remembered that these people are too busy doing actual work/commissions to participate in some dumb artist youtube collective for more attention

True enough, but your criticisms half the time are terrible. Criticizing Baylee on patchy watercolor? Absolutely fair. Saying that every artist in the collective except Sophira is terrible and they're only doing it for attention? Not really criticism, and not really true. Criticism works best when it's actually true, when you start saying decent artists are all terrible just because they're not the absolute best, you look biased and petty.

It seems here that either you're really good, or you're really bad, with no room for artists in between. Lets be real, MOST of the artists in the collective are average artists, but that doesn't make them bad. It makes them decent artists, some of whom are better than others, all of whom are improving. To call them all terrible or just looking for attention is simply incorrect.

No. 201523

Can you sage next time if you're going to complain?

Anyway, it's their personality too but you may be a little too dense to notice that.

No. 201524


Sorry! Obviously I'm new here hopefully I did that right, tried to do the sage thing :)

I like to discuss artists and I'd like to be able to discuss their flaws & problems, but I also find it ridiculous when it's just bashing for no real reason.

Talking about personality flaws is also totally valid IMO, but to say "every artist in the collective wants attention" isn't specific. But I would agree personality is a perfectly valid thing to discuss, like Baylee's response to criticism.

>Saying that every artist in the collective except Sophia is terrible and they're only doing it for attention? Not really criticism, and not really true

I mean sure, you have some good level headed points here anon, especially about them being average! (Not to white knight)
But I also can't blame people for having high standards, I mean when I look for incredible artists, youtube isn't necessarily my first choice. Instagram, twitter , tumblr..etc, have a ton of really great popular artists that set the bar pretty high so it's easy to take one look at these popular artists on youtube and immediately compare them, especially since most people here are artists (I hope) and everyone knows how critical artists can be about themselves and others.
Not only does their skill play into this but also their personalities, like HC Brown for example, she's a decent artist but her attitude is awful and a huge turn off

Hmm the attention thing can be argued but eh, most people on youtube are thirsty for attention so
The thread is called general Artist SALT for a reason
I just wish there were more really good (non average) artists on youtube, it's more inspiring and helpful to watch someone who's really good as opposed to someone who is at the low/average level that's just me personally tho

No. 201526


Thanks, I appreciate that! You make some good points as well. Perhaps it's because the medium of making art on a video inhibits the ability to make good art to an extent? I tried once or twice and you have to adjust your position and drawing angle so that the camera can actually see what you are doing, and I can imagine it would be harder to film a long extended piece that takes more time to create? Whereas with instagram, twitter, tumblr, you're not filming and documenting the process, so you can take as much time as you want to create it, you don't have to worry about getting in the way of the camera and lighting and all that stuff.

That said, Audra is really phenomenal, as well as Danica Sills - and I really like Iraville as well, if you haven't ever seen her stuff. A lot of the good artists don't upload as frequently, probably as they spend longer on their pieces? I do think a lot of the collective girls are talented though, and they do seem to be improving, even if they're not at Loish or Audra level. Kirsty Partridge also creates some really beautiful stuff. I agree, it's really inspiring to watch someone who really really knows their stuff.

You've got a point about it being called artist salt as well, i can't really come into a thread about bitching and complain about bitching! I don't mind bitching, I guess I just felt like a lot of it wasn't for a valid reason.

No. 201527


oh and I definitely agree about the personality thing, 100%.

No. 201533

Audra's art is beautiful but her personality is very obnoxious at times, with the whole feminist-activist crap. One time in the middle of a voice over she started whining about someone on the street using a leaf blower and muh environment. I think she has toned it down lately where I actually managed to sit through some videos, which is good because her art is pleasant to look at.

No. 201534

a think a lot of the salt also stems from the fact you have so many budding artists taking their first dip into creativity following average Youtube creators, who most of the time have no real insight or knowledge to pass onto them because they don't know what they're doing in the first place. the fact Baylee is publishing an art tutorial book when she has little grasp of the fundamentals herself ( something she's seemingly aware of, even ) is ridiculous.

No. 201540

Let's be real, the whole anonymous forum salt is for people to vent their immediate feelings and not have to deal with consequences, so a lot of thoughts here probably don't even reflect what people think completely and are mostly moved by emotion and impulsion.

The reason most of the popular Youtubers are really just average (or below average) artists is because video making and actual art making are different skills.
You can have someone who is pretty good at creating content on Youtube, yet their videos are centered on something really unimpressive. Just notice how some of those storytelling girls have over 1 million subscribers. Eventually you can find some gem where the person is good at both, but it's not always the case.

No. 201542

>>Germans not being honest and blunt
That's German 101. Sounds like you haven't been around Germans by saying that. Obviously a generalization doesn't apply to everyone. Note that the bluntness does not equal rudeness, tho. It just may be considered rude when you're used to people telling white lies all the time. I myself find that no-bullshit approach delightful and not rude at all, because it's usually a kind of honesty that carries little to no malice.

I skimmed thru this entire thing and cringed.

She'd probably use her yt pennies to just buy more tho if that happened cos her husband probably pays all the house bills etc so why not.

I'm neutral on Bananajamana. Her paintings are really average looking, but cute. Her DIYs are ok. She doesn't handle criticism well, and her relationship with her husband makes me sad on a personal level because it seemed so easy for her to just pack up and get a visa for UK, when for me and the guy i've been with for years it's been an exercise in jumping thru hoops except the hoops get smaller and higher as time passes.

Sometimes I've shown people WIPs and for example, I'll say "Ok the text is just a placeholder but what do you think of the background?" and they'll be like "looks great but I'm REALLY not feeling the text :/" lol it happens surprisingly often and I can understand people getting annoyed. But 1. Baylee totally backtracked about how finished it was. 2. She needs to fucking get over it if she's trying to be anything like a professional. I hate this attitude many internet artists have where anything fans/clients say that's even mildly annoying is fucking blasphemy and should never happen again.

it's not just in the art community either. IT and graphic design people do the same shit. I think it happens when people think having an income doing what they like for a hobby (drawing,coding,designing) should mean they literally just get to do their hobby and get paid, so they're gobsmacked when they actually have to deal with annoying clients/viewers. Sometimes listening to people rant about their job is fun but you can usually tell when they're just blowing off steam and when they're genuinely shocked and offended by normal annoyances

No. 202216

These sort of realistic pieces can be really deceiving when it comes to a person's skill. Someone can copy a photo using techniques such as grids. They can be a valuable tool a lot of times, don't take me wrong, but amateurish people sometimes use these kinds of things to copy a picture and make their finished product look much more impressive than what they're usually capable of achieving, getting a lot of praise from people who aren't that familiar with the art making process and thus think this sort of realism is the ultimate showdown of abilities. Also, if you get too deep on this sort of fairly-mindless-copy-realism you're not really learning how to BUILD a drawing, the structure, the fundamentals. You are basically becoming a human printer.

No. 202219

Chloe has stated that she's spent years learning to paint and draw realistically and from observation, and she's now trying to learn how to work from her head, so she's at the very start of that journey. She knows it's not very good right now, but I'm sure she will improve. It's just not her strong suit. It's really hard to take being able to paint from observation and then paint from your head, so I commend her for realizing it's time for her to take that leap and start working on a new skill.

No. 202261

I've seen her instagram, she's definitely improved a great deal.

No. 202263

yeah sure, but then don't sell it for money, and don't claim to be qualified to offer tutorials

also, working without reference shouldn't really be an aim. it wouldn't have been wrong to look at a picture of someone holding their arm up to see how shoulders work before starting that blue pic

No. 202268

YTAC requires you to sell all artworks completed, she doesn't have a choice. She sold it for $30 and someone made the decision to purchase it - that's not on her, that's on them. If someone felt it was worth $30, that is their decision, and they are the only people responsible for it.

She hasn't done any tutorials on how to draw, especially none on cartoon/non referential drawing. She's given general tips to artists, which is not the same thing. She's skilled in one area and not another, that doesn't mean she can't offer any advice at all.>>202263

No. 202270

fair enough if them's the rules, but, you know, if you know you have to sell a piece and it turns out like that, you scrap it, realise you're gonna have to find a reference, and start again

maybe it was a question of time, but still

she does have a tutorial up called 'How to draw a realistic eye' but yeah it's true that the other videos are all of the 'ten top tips' variety, fair enough

No. 202273

What? So she's not allowed to post it or even hint that she drew it without selling it? If that's true it's ridiculous. I'm not acting like it's a moral failure for her to be shit at drawing from her mind, I just think that the descrepency between her skillsets is way bigger than usual. If I drew something like that and posted it I would expect negative feedback. Like others have said, she could use a vague reference or even look back to her old realistic portraits to try to piece together some cartoon anatomy. It really looks like she didn't even try.

No. 202276

Yes, one of the things in the YTAC is that all the artworks go for sale, so yeah it's just part of the collective. The discrepancy between her skill sets is pretty drastic, but I'm sure she will improve quickly. There was some nice work done in the hair, it's mostly the anatomy that struggled, and she's well aware of that.

Her channel is also primarily comedic videos, hacks, and top tip type things as well, I don't believe she's ever promoted herself as an amazing artist, though I do think she is talented. (If you follow her on twitter she did some lovely work for a magazine recently. She's very good with reference.) I actually think it's pretty cool that someone with a following put up work that isn't as good as she normally creates - I think it shows that it's OK to not be perfect. A lot of these YouTubers have a young audience, and it can be really intimidating if they see stuff like her Supernatural piece all the time. I think it can be really helpful to younger artists to see even more experienced artists struggle with a different style or medium. That's just my opinion though!

No. 202287


No. 202300

but what does that really mean? is it just that if she shows it in a video it has to be for sale?

No. 202306

It means that all the art that the artists create for the ytac theme has to be put up for sale. So all of them, Baylee, Chloe, Danica Sills, Sophira, all the rest of them… They all create art for the collective every theme, and the art they create gets put up for sale for the fans. If you look a lot of them only ever sell stuff when it comes around to the collective. It's part of what the collective does - fans vote on a theme, they all create art based on it, and then all that art is listed for sale. It's part of the whole thing, basically.

No. 202311

ah ok. thanks for explaining. that's pretty reasonable after all

No. 202324

Good point re the younger audience. In an ideal world maybe a video would include the first piece, and then a redraw to show how you don't have to be perfect, plus how you can learn from mistakes

I feel this way about like 80% of modern/abstract art aswell. Like yeah these yt artists bother me, but seeing a canvas painted a solid colour sell for millions of dollars makes me cry a bit on the inside, cos it's not really art imo, it's just clever buying and selling based on who knows whom and who wants what, and what brings about lots of prestige, etc.

It was me for a brief time in community college, but I could never shake the basic.

No. 203385

Learning to use that in your favour instead of getting salty is the key. First and foremost, before complaining the Chloes and Baylees are popular for no reason because they suck, learn to also recognize their efforts in places other than their own art. Baylee as an example might be beyond mediocre in art, but she puts the right effort into her Youtube channel and that generates results.

I'm constantly surrounded by musicians and I see this happen all the time. You have the technically amazing people who don't achieve much beyond being teachers because even if they are amazing at playing music, the way they present themselves is unappealing. As much as some people like to pretend -it's all about the sound- it really isn't most of the time, people enjoy savouring music as a whole experience, a.k.a also visually. And then they get whinny about how they aren't achieving much because this and that when in reality they are just lacking in other aspects.

You can sit around and cry about how everything is unfair or learn to play the game. And by that I don't mean being something you are not, I'm sure there are appealing things within yourself. Acknowledge them and play your strengths.

she doesn't know how to use watercolors at all. It's super mottled and bloomy and those black shadows don't look good at all (as they tend to do on any color of skin).

No. 204157

This seems to be more of a surface problem. It looks like she's using watercolor on gesso which does generally end up having that bloomy, weird effect. It could also be watercolor ground, which I never used to be able to give an in-depth opinion but heard it also absorbs differently than watercolor paper. Can't say it wasn't a bit of poor decision making to choose that surface, tho.
If you check out some other videos, the ones where she uses paper tend to be better. Her biggest problem is the blatant sameface, but technique-wise she's not really usually bad.

>>When you lack in art content so you have to resort to silly drama.
Those drama videos are basically the bottom of the content creator barrel on my book, so the video idea in itself is pretty cringy.
But if we're gonna talk about the "drama" Baylee's opinion is not bad.
Pic related, it's what Jake Parker posted which supposedly generated such drama. And to be honest, how much of a tard you have to be to want to do INKtober digitally? Inktober, the challenge where you are supposed to use ink. It's not that hard to interpret. If you don't want to draw in ink, why do you want to participate? Oh yes, because all the cool kidz are doing eet. I guess they're trying to interpret it as the act of inking instead of the medium ink.
When people stretch the rules up to using watercolors and shit like that I tend to feel like they're trying to fit in without putting the effort to actually do what you're supposed to do in the challenge. But up to that point you can at least argue you did a drawing in ink and just added some more stuff, people wanting to do it digitally is just plain stupid.

I wish I existed in the art spaces you frequent but I come across a lot of art majors who feel like the digital medium is damaging the integrity of art and that its only value is for commercial work that they have to "stoop down" to do. This is coming from fucking illustration majors or people who are into comic books/animation.

But yeah, this entire debate is dumb because the intent of Inktober is to push yourself with a difficult medium. I've seen some people do digital inks but try to do as much traditional inking as possible, in spirit of the challenge.

No. 205332

I think the reason that shitty youtube artists are so popular is that most of the people who watch the videos are children-teens who find really great artists too intimidating.

>They'd rather be inspired by someone not-so-great than someone amazing because it seems more like an achievable goal to them.
This is actually true. 10 years ago when I started art I looked up to artists who have decent art (by decent art I mean art that doesn't have shit anatomy and lazy coloring like Baylee or Holly's) and once I got used to the fundamentals I find better artists I look up to (oil painters and artists from the past).
The only that sucks is when one of the artists you once looked up to follow have stagnant progress. It's actually sad, to be honest.

This person reminds me of my friend who once messaged me in the middle of the night because she won't stop whining about her not being to finish her reel. She even pulls out the disabled card in Facebook for attention. Still sucks she's still rewarded with a fucking silver spoon in her mouth.

Why do these artists insist on using digital software for inktober? I always see Inktober as a way to get so used to traditional inking to the point where you have to avoid the same mistakes over and over again, unlike Digital Art where you can only abuse ctrl+Z to your liking until you get that one line correctly.

No. 205502

Not to sound like one of those, but as someone with a legitimate learning disability, this shit makes me mad.

No. 205743

I think baylee is a little obsessed with spending money and buying things; she has bought at least one thing in almost every daily vlog. But I also feel it's more than that. There are alternatives to buying an entire book binding machine that would probably work better/be more cost and time effective. But that would mean bringing in other people to the situation. And I don't know whether it's just that she's so controlling she has to do everything herself, or if she doesn't want people in the printing industry to see her work because it's not very impressive. It's like when she went out and bought an entire table saw set up, when she could have just had the hardware store cut the wood up into pieces for a few dollars. Her reasoning for things often strike me as being dopey and stubborn. And people are trying to bring logic into it when they leave comments, but I think that's a losing battle with her. As she so often says, she, "does what she wants!".

No. 205791

I agree. She has the money to print small amounts of black and white illustrations or even artbooks and then sell them for decent amount. She is popular enough to have a successful kickstarter campaign and still could have the books printed and formatted. Does she really want to spend time to learn all that just to make good looking books, and then spend even more time making them? She could spend that time making more stuff, getting better at art and hang out with her family. I just don't get it. I just don't get her.

No. 205795

bloody hell. all you need to make perfect bound books at home is pva, a brush, a bone folder, brown paper, scrim, a ruler and some binder clips. and needle and thread if you want to sew sections.

OK it takes a little while before your hand bound books are saleable, but, like, ffs baylee at least try doing it yourself first.

and what about printing, has she any idea how much ink and paper costs she's talking about? people use professional printers for a reason. either that or the books she's talking about doing, if it's practical to print at home they will totally be small enough to make by hand. stitched or saddle stitched

and that's even before even thinking about how she has no fucking content worthy of putting in a book

saged for bookbinding rant, sorry

No. 205797

yes. PLUS she has no idea about book design/layout/typograhy/etc

No. 205909

Yeah, some of the shit she does is pretty nonsensical. Shoot, I would love to buy a huge set of Caran d'Ache colored pencils, but I know I don't do enough colored pencil art to justify that big of a purchase. I think the best way to describe her buying habits is high time preference, rather than think long term she's thinking in the short term.

No. 205972

You guys are overreacting a little bit. Yes, it does indeed seem like a bit of a stretch to just go and buy a whole bunch of things to make books at home, but at the same time, the way you were talking about it sounded like it costed 10 grand. She's a working adult with a business, a 2 grand investment is not absurd. The most absurd part about it is probably her wanting to make books out of her shitty content instead of improving first, but if she has people eating that shit up, she might as well make some money out of it. Unfortunately that's the nature of the business.

Honestly I think that's almost a smart investment for Baylee standards, I mean, just think for a second about how much money she blows on Disney statues and crap like that. At least this is money spent on something that can give monetary return.

No. 206009

I guess why people are upset is because, given her track record, she more than likely will not stick with the book making.

No. 206022

Probably true. If the demand is too big, which would be the ideal situation if you're looking for profit, she will probably get tired of it like she did with her Patreon and online store. Managing that kind of side business for artists (online stores, printing, book making) is pretty tiresome and eats up a chunk of your time.

No. 206086

it's also about the actual printing. the length of time and amount of ink it would take to print off a book on a home printer, plus the cost of paper, plus trimming the paper (unless she makes all the books A4) etc etc

No. 206119

Also taking into account that she might not stick with it long enough to make back the investment.

No. 206133

This reminds me of Baylee talking about thinking she is more on the analytical side (she was comparing it to natural creativeness). Struck me as odd as I see a lot of her behavior as childish, she seems to act on impulse and laziness (not working towards better art) a lot. Not to mention treating creativeness as something natural is already not an analytical thing to do, as creativeness is also something that must be nurtured and worked on instead of just expecting to be naturally creative.

No. 206137

Honestly, that's just an excuse to not try making better art. There's more to the art making process than just "creativity," the more you draw the more ideas you'll have to work from. That's at least how I use my sketchbook when I feel my stuff is getting dry. But then again, I don't hide behind my art supplies lol

No. 206138

At the end of the day Baylee is just a hobbyist artist who only manages to make money out of her art because of her Youtuber side. That's what made some people pissed off about her Art Block video that time, big talk for a small doer.

No. 206140

She's one of those that doesn't make art for the sake of beauty. It's irritating because there are some pretty amazing artists out there but are overshadowed by people like her.

No. 206141

Has anyone seen the inside of Baylee's book?

No. 206142

I agree that creativity is something that needs to be nurtured, but I do think some people are more geared towards that kind of thought process. I don't think she is. Her work almost never has a narrative or particularly interesting aspects of any kind; it usually revolves around wanting to draw a "cute, young woman". I do agree that she doesn't strike me as an analytical thinker either.I felt that was just her grasping at something to make up for her professed lack of creativity.

On another topic; I thought it was ironic that she was cheerleading artist's youtube accounts, and how there are other things out there than gaming and beauty channels, and how the little artist channels can make it big too! Considering it seems like she prioritises gaming over making art these days, that seemed laughable. If she was actually an artist, I don't think she would have stopped streaming art stuff on twitch, and made it all gaming - especially when so many people tell her they wish she hadn't done that.

No. 206143

That whole thing with the twitch streams was really disappointing. I did actually enjoy the art streams because it was nice background noise to have while drawing. It also gave me the sense that I was drawing with someone rather than just doing it by myself. So yeah, pretty freakin' stupid if you ask me lol.

No. 206284

While I'm not familiar with this artist, I found her advice to be relevant to this sketchbook challenge. Holly and Baylee did not exercise conscious learning, hence why there was little to no improvement.

No. 206301

yeah this sketchbook thing has been really disappointing - but then again, how could it not be? forcing out 20+ pages a day rather than making the challenge something meaningful and useful - just 'draw every day' like inktober is so much better - has just led to both of them cementing in the bad habits rather than learning anything.

plus baylee's idea of filling a page is to do a 30-second outline of a cat right in the middle and then move on. it's fucking embarrassing

No. 206314

Pretty much. I would rather them do less pages and actually learn something from what they've drawn. Baylee always goes on about "quality over quantity" and yet she's shitting out terrible art rather than taking the time to make better pieces.

No. 206394

Yeah, I feel - regardless of what she tells her audience - Baylee did the challenge because it was content for her videos. Not just the doing of it, but also the amount she was able to talk/complain about it.
She is terrible at sketching because she seems to not know the fundamentals of drawing. So all 600 of those pages were pointless because she has shown no improvement whatsoever. It would be like if someone sewed from 30 commercial patterns in a month; that wouldn't necessarily mean that they can replicate individual aspects to a garment design of their own like learning the basics of sewing would.
What's most annoying is that this so called "analytical" thinker can't put 2 + 2 together and come up with that truth. She will call people haters and continue to make money drawing twee, ill-proportioned garbage.

When you're drawing on a computer like this, are you using a tablet? And are you only looking at the screen while drawing? In high school we used to do that whole thing where you draw a person or an object without looking down at your hand–is that what's going on here?

I'm always so impressed by this kind of thing because it's like fucking mysterious to me lol, I barely have any idea how you do this.

Thanks to any nonnie who can answer this for me and maybe explain a little bit about how one goes about using adobe or whatever to make art in general. Sorry to be stupid.

No. 206558


I could be either a traditional tablet or a monitor tablet. Monitor tablets like Cintiq or Huion are kinda like a digital notebook, many people prefer it because of that. But the thing with normal tablets is that you don't need to look where your hand goes, rather where the line goes. So you don't need to look at your hands at all. Kinda like a pianist that needs to look at the partiture but not at his hands?

Anyway, some people don't get used to that though I usually prefer monitor tablets, even though they are more expensive. I personally prefer monitor tablets because I think they are more confortable in general.

She's just doing the same full colour mediocre animu portraits she always does that have got same face syndrome, but since she abuses hashtags and people are afraid of her, she gets a ton of likes on her work. She could be a YT artist if she was on YT.

No. 206965

I'm participating in Inktober and only using a minimal amount of watercolor in my pieces. I feel as long as the majority of the piece is done in ink, it really shouldn't matter. Besides, I like having at least a little color in there so my pieces aren't blending with everything else.

Seconded, the more skilled artists can make monochrome look interesting but the lower tier artists really need some colour to make things pop and not everybody has a wide array of colourful inks and pens. As long as it's only an additional element and the image is mostly ink then I don't see the problem, it's pretty much the same as painting with coloured inks.

People that use digital during inktober piss me off though, the point is that it's an annoyingly permanent traditional medium, if they can't brave it without the undo button then they could just post without the inktober tag. Fuck that "digital ink" bull

What is it with people hating copic markers? If you hate them so much, don't buy them, but don't start attacking others just because it's a medium they enjoy using. I swear, I'm getting Holly Brown vibes.

No. 207128

Some are angry 'cause their friends have them and they don't. Others are angry little kids who draw like shit have them, which I understand but ultimately think it's a loss of time to be bothered about.
And the most justifiable is people being upset some artists sell originals made with Copics (and other alcohol markers) despite them not being lightfast.
Otherwise, Copics are lovely for some purposes, like sketching and making designs/art intended for scanning and reproduction, due to the immediate results they provide.

No. 207131

Your second point about the lightfastness I agree with. It upsets me to see people like Baylee sell copic art for a really high price. But, in the case of someone just using them because it's a medium they enjoy, I think it's a bit dickish to get up in their face about what media they use.

No. 207133

I don't hate the markers themselves. Hell, use them all you want ffs, put colour in your work, who cares. It's using them to produce shit tier work and not shutting up about the fact that they're Copics like that somehow turns a middle-school drawing into a professional piece that bugs me. It's like the people who are shit at doing makeup but think they're professional MUAs because they (or their parents) buy them expensive shit.

No. 207135

Oooh spicy debate! I'm glad we're able to bring some life into this thread.

I guess my issue is that people are taking time that could be spent on their own art and putting it into roasting young weebs with expendable cash. I got my first two markers when I was entering high school, and my art was pretty shit, but I'm glad I at least started grabbing them then because the taxes where I live increased and make the markers overly expensive. Personally, as long as the tool is being used and not hoarded (like what Baylee is doing with those Schmincke watercolors ;A;) then I don't see much of an issue with a smol bean buying a tool that interests them.

No. 207136

>I guess my issue is that people are taking time that could be spent on their own art and putting it into roasting young weebs with expendable cash
Ultimately you are right.
I think deep inside we are just upset about people we perceive as being less skilled than us having things we believe we deserve more than them, or that we deserve and they don't because we think they didn't put enough effort do deserve those things.
That can extend from being upset children have Copic markers to being upset Baylee Jae has so many subs with the art she makes.
It's a natural feeling but at the same time it's better for us to not linger on those. As you said, that time and effort can be spent on things that will actually benefit us in the long run.
Maybe I should do what I preach and get off anonymous forums to practice my art… lol

No. 207137

(I'm the peep in the comment above yours, I found your response to this really interesting ^U^)
I do find roasting on online forms to be a bit therapeutic. It's releasing a lot of pent up frustrations that would otherwise leak into aspects of my life. Honestly, there is nothing wrong with expressing your frustrations at another person's success or even what supplies they have. I mean, I'm salty af about Baylee using Schmincke watercolors and not giving them all the love and care they deserve, but the frustration can be used as a drive to work hard to one day own a set too. So anon, feel free to roast the shit outta people lol

Not really. Ink behaves differently, watercolor is a bit more forgiving as a medium. And I believe that's the reason why Jake Parker chose inks, for being more permanent and unforgiving medium.

Really awesome if she's growing, but it still feels like her # of subs is not entirely because of the interest or quality of her work. The "lifestyle" aspect of it definitely weighs more in terms of gaining followers than the art.

No. 207319

Subs are rarely, if ever, equivalent to the quality of someone's art. More like your social media and video making abilities and how relatable you are. Takes two different sets of skills to be a good artist and a good Youtuber.
That said, I think Min's drawing abilities are being confused with style. Even if we don't like her style, as it's not exactly my favorite either, it's clear that she is decently aware of what she is doing. She is not a bad artist, at least skill-wise.

Urgh. Why is she talking like we are slow preschool children? Also, way to get it wrong at the beginning, champ.

No. 207459

I never said mastering colour was easier than greyscale, I said it was a harder skill to make an image look exciting in only grayscale than it is to just add a dash of colour. It takes more knowledge of composition and tonals values etc to make a strong and interesting grayscale image, wheras any beginner can draw a quick monochrome sketch and just wash over a few of the elements using one copic marker it will just pop instantly and catch attention at first glance.
So thatslikeyouropinioinman.jpeg

Are you guys okay? I didn't complain I just said that using watercolours in conjunction with inks is no different to adding an ink wash so it shouldn't be seen as 'against the rules'. If you don't agree you could just say so like >>207166 did

I agree. It’s because a lot of new artists using color don’t really understand color schemes or value yet and just oversaturate everything. Greyscale forces artists to learn about the fundamentals which is why most schools teach that first.

Would be so much better if inktober had actual rules. End the debate all together. Is it about "inking" as a concept, is it about "ink" as a tool, can you only use black ink, is colour ok as long as it's ink only! Do markers count as ink!! Either make solid rules or let anyone do what they want

No. 207580

That's what I'm saying though, I think it should be purely ink materials used any way you want, but because there's no "rules" people are gonna do what they want & you can't really argue it because there is no "rules" like seeing someone do a full watercolour piece of pencil pieces then add a ink outline to me, is a cope out. If you want to add colour, use coloured ink. I wish they'd set actual rules. Majority of the "viral" inktober posts I've seen are watercolour and it's like what's the point.

No. 207621


It's easier for young people to relate to them as well. And a lot of them are trying to improve. Yes there are a lot of average artist out there but should all attention be reserved for the best of the best? Everyone deserves encouragement. I understand the frustration especially if an artist is acting like they are the best but a lot of them straight up admit they are not the best and are trying to improve. And their viewers get to go on that journey with them. And just because someone isn't the best artist in the world doesn't mean they don't have value to offer in a video.

No. 207622

At the end of the day there is no quick and easy way to success on YouTube. They all started in the same place and worked hard.

I at least appreciate that she drew a different body type than she usually does, but am I the only one who feels the head, and especially the neck feel disproportionate to the rest of the body? it could be the angle, I guess, but it looks odd to me.
I've seen a few more successful artists justifying using the same mediums they always do by saying the "challenge" for them lies in the making artwork every day, not the using of ink. And it comes off them just bragging about how busy they are.

No. 207781

I'm not sure about it being disproportionate because the whole angle she filmed in throws the perspective off a bit, but judging by the thumbnail it just looks like a chubbier girl.
I can appreciate the lack of her usual sameface on this, tho. I like the piece, it just bothers me how she's labeling it Inktober. If a classical oil painter did the same thing and tried to justify it as they're using ink to line it, something they don't usually do, it would be fairly ok (altho I am still anal about mixed media Inktober), but she already does that type of work all the time.

No. 207789

There really are no rules to inktober. The whole point of inktober is to get better at inking. No body is stopping you from using watercolors if you want but don't use it as a crutch so you won't have to learn how to ink. I'm honestly more disappointed in artists who decide to do the same thing during inktober that the do the other 11 months in the year. They just use the whole event to get extra views on their work rather than a way to learn and get better.

Those kids are so lucky if they want to go into art. Living in Japan with connections with Mangaka/animators, with a successful french animator dad to teach them and already a name for themselves. Even if they don't like art in a couple of years or it stops being entirely fun, they're going to learn a lot about work ethic and online marketing/promotion.

I almost like her videos, but mainly just go back to them when I run out of other things to watch. She's very foot-gazey and introspective with her voice overs; to the point that it feels like the audience is just a sounding board for things she's trying to work through. Also, she strikes me as a very technical and analytical artist rather than an inspired, imaginative creative type. I think that adds to the boring, repetitive vibe.
She has that same face syndrome thing that often stems from the artist basically drawing different versions of themselves.

also I wish she would just paint something. she talks all the time about wanting to learn and improve, but she always does inked linework filled in with watercolour. I wish she'd skip the ink sometimes and just paint. she talks in today's video about wanting to loosen up, and the way sketches lose emergy when you ink, and then carries on doing these careful lines etc.

To be honest, I'm tired of the same generic "cute-fantasy-girl" art style most female artist are going for these days.

Honestly, when are those people going to learn that responding to so called "hate comments" that way is only going to screw them over further, especially if you're being fragile-aggressive? Either ignore it or even delete it quietly if it bothers you too much, but don't bitch and moan about it.

I think the criticism you've shown is quite reasonable imo you can't always be all rainbows and smileys and artists should know that. Personally, nothing has helped me improve more than the extremely demanding, tactless and blunt art teacher I used to have.

Also, anyone else annoyed by Happy D. Artist? She has a video about criticism and said that artists should only be criticized in specific things they wish to be criticized on. Which is pretty stupid since artists often make mistakes that they don't realize. She keeps on saying about how she "doesn't want to hurt anyone's feelings". Like, grow up, girl, the world is unforgiving and the art world is especially merciless.

No. 209228

Happy D is pretty annoying. I liked the type of videos she made but couldn't stand them because of her personality. I remember her making a video after last year's election where she described Trump being elected as a TRAGEDY and general drama queen behavior. At least it wasn't like Jellie Bee who set up a discord for emotional support or whatever… For fuck's sake. If you're gonna implode because some dude you don't like got elected, what else, do you melt in the rain or something?
The reason I went on this tangent was to say I think those girls who preach those things are just overly sensitive in general. They are probably used to be put on a little pedestal all the time and now that they've grown into what can be described as overgrown children, they still can't fathom the possibility of the world not being there to serve their feelings. So they go on to become artists and can't wrap themselves around the concept of people critiquing them, even if ultimately it can be for the better.
Is criticism always valid? No. Sometimes people are just being dicks. But it's important to deal with that with composure, or else you might discard valid critiques just cause it hurts your feelings.

No. 209229


Exactly. I think a lot of young girls like these take up art not as a passion, but as a way to justify their childishness and receive asspats by drawing the same generic shit, which gives artists the bad rep o being lazy and not taking things seriously, when in reality the art world is harsh and competitive as hell.

Also, in my opinion, I think the word "talent" is being abused. None of the artists shown on this thread have any talent or creativity at all. Check out Kim Jung Gi, Daniel Dociu or Craig Mullins for real talent.

No. 209231


Yeah, but there are people in here referring to them as being "talented, but…". None of them have anything special imo

No. 209232


She's one of those people who thinks the better the material, the better their art will be. Ironically, the most amazing artists I met used old shit like half-broken guitars to produce incredible music or random pencils to create drawings. It's about skill, not supplies.

No. 209233

Sorry, I deleted what I said because I was going to repost it with additional info. Usually prefer doing that than filling the thread with samefagging.
Original post pointed out them being untalented as the reason why they're here, in a place where we talk shit about them.

I was going to add that talent doesn't start when people come out of the womb. Most of those artists are young, and might be -relatively- talented or have potential. People like Kim Jung Gi or Craig Mullins have years and years of experience under their belts. Apples and oranges.

No. 209234


The problem I have with that is that I really don't see any potential in their art, not for their age at least. If the artists posted here were like 15-16 years old, I would maybe say they had some potential, but most of them are on their twenties if I'm correct. There are plenty of artists on their twenties that produce much more amazing art than these people, even younger than that. And I must disagree on the talent part: Check out Picasso's "Man in a beret" painting, which he painted when he was 14 years old. I think some people are born with higher sensibilities or perceptive skills that make them different from the crowd.

No. 209236

>I think some people are born with higher sensibilities or perceptive skills that make them different from the crowd.
Yes, indeed, but natural talent alone does not do it. It takes acquired talent to make a great artist. Picasso's young age doesn't imply he just picked up a paint brush for the first time and started painting amazing pieces. I know a musician who's mind numbingly good in his early 20s, but when you talk to him you'll learn he's been playing since he was 9 and practicing seriously since he was 13.
I don't think most people on this tread are untalented for lack of natural talent, but for lack of pursuit and sacrifice into their crafts. I also think it's unfair to put people like Audra Auclair who have been mentioned here in the same throwaway basket as Baylee Jae.

No. 209256

Ah, so I'm not the only one who found that whole fiasco to be a bunch of bullshit. Honestly, these "professionals" can't handle something not going their way, then why the hell did they go into an industry that doesn't favor emotional weakness? Jellie Bee really pisses me off though, since she has a habit of scamming people out of their hard earned cash and then tries to hide the evidence.

No. 209258

Yeah, I can't stand these two. Critique is important for improvement. My favorite art teacher from high school would make the entire class practice critiques and that was probably some of the most helpful information I've received during my art education. The guy was a pretty good oil painter and because of his advice was supported by his own skills, he was highly respected. That's something a lot of these YouTube artists don't have, skills that support what they're spewing.

No. 209282

Everybody has the potential to produce good art if they put the time and effort into it. Age is such a bad indicator of skill level because at the end of the day it really doesn't mean much. There are people who start art later in life and become great artists with a lot of hard work, and there are young artists who make awesome work early on only to burn out and give up on art as they grow older. The thing with most artists mentioned here is that they really do have potential if you just look at how many hours they are willing to devote to their craft. Unfortunately if they aren't willing to put the effort into their work by consciously tackling things like fundamentals or even leaving their comfort zone once in awhile, they won't be able to improve and will only stagnate in their abilities.

No. 209548

Actually Jellie Bee here. Someone linked me here and I was super worried at first, but hand on heart you guys are all correct. I'm not a scammer, but I can see why you would all think that. I'm not even going to make excuses for my actions, I just let things get too on top of me. It's been a really rough few years and I can't tell a lot of people what's really been happening. All you need to know now is that I'm working on being a better person, I've moved out. I've been getting all orders out on time (other than fiascos like Royal Mail charging me wrongly and blocking my account) - things like the Kickstarter and Patreon I thought I could handle by myself and I couldn't. And instead of asking for help, I wasn't in a place I could ask and I let it just continue and get heavier and heavier.
I try not to talk about mental health a lot, because it's not an excuse in my opinion. I should be able to deal with it, but having had my finances ruined by the government, my life being in eternal torment by other circumstances and trying to keep my head afloat has been rough. I can only apologise and I'm trying my hardest to make up for the problems that have occurred. I now live with friends and me and Ryan have partially separated.
It's complicated.
But one of the friends I live with has had stern talks with me, has helped me more than anyone else and she's taking on a lot of the work that I could no longer face in my mental state. She's incredible, I owe her so so much, and we're working on getting everything done by the end of the year. I couldn't have asked for better support, and I truly hope that I change in the eyes of some of you, but I also accept that burning people once means its hard to come back from.
Again, it's my fault. I'm sorry, I'm truly working on it. Thank you all so much <3

Also someone said my SU work isn't as good as my other work which made me feel kinda happy, I worry so so much about creating original art that I panic and make fan stuff.

As for my gemsona cuddling another gemsona, it's just fiction lmao, just like roleplaying or anything else similar. Means nothing. I liked the way they played out as a story.

Any who! Criticise me all you like, it's only how I'll improve.

Yo I'm totally a lesbian with Baylee. Bwahaha. No offense, I don't find her attractive sexually.

Not saying everyone has to like her, but she's never done me any wrong. I have a bad habit of being an over enthusiastic friend at times though haha.

OH another thing, yeah the Discord was pretty dumb of me. I don't even know why I did it, but people were arguing on my own Discord server and I was like okay people are freaking out what can I do to help, and I flapped and made a stupid Discord server that I'm fairly sure I left anyway

No. 209552

so all your patrons have their rewards now? deleting comments is incredibly suspicious for future warning, when people have paid you for shit and you just go silent on them they're obviously going to say something about it. just a heads up that things were going slow would have helped

No. 209554


I have never deleted comments, honestly. I'm not that type of person.
As far as Patreon goes, I'm currently getting Kickstarter out of the way first. I did commissions and online store, then Kickstarter is next, and then Patreon by the end of the year. I have left posts on Patreon to get people to message me, but having had little response I know I need to get messaging directly.
Some Patrons have had rewards sent out, or rather exchanges for rewards because (sadly) it was that long ago I felt sending them older artwork was a cop out, and wanted them to have something fresh and therefore let them have hundreds of pounds of stock from my online store.
Right now, my friend/manager is super busy with her own business and once our last convention is out of the way next week, there's nothing left but to focus entirely on the missing Patreon and Kickstarter rewards.
I have often posted and not gone too silent, but I guess there were patches of time when I just couldnt face it and forgot about it all. It's still no excuse, and I'm determined to be free of all my debt to people by the end of the year. It's like I've been renewed, the change in just my personality is tangible, I'm a lot lighter, happier and ready to take on all the shit I've caused. My friend is an absolute powerhouse in terms of getting shit done, so believe me, my butt is very bruised from the kicking.

No. 209556


Jellie Bee scammed someone? Tell me more, I totally missed it

No. 209557


Basically, I fell behind a LOT with Patreon, Kickstarter and commissions, and people think that I've scammed them. In my defense, I've always given refunds when asked, I've never ignored nor deleted comments, and I've always owned up to my mistakes.

What people don't know is the harassment, the hate and other shit I've had from people within hours of making an order - and unfortunately I let it get to me.

But I am owning up entirely to my mistakes, I've delayed so so long. I'm learning, and I hope people will be happy once I fulfill my orders and commissions! I would be angry with me too, it's inexcusable.

No. 209558


Okey. Thank you for explaining.

No. 209561

It's good that you are explaining what's going on, but I urge you to do that before shit hits the fan some next time. I know it is very daunting, but in the end, being direct and honest minimizes the bang. People are probably still going to complain, as always, but when you're mostly avoiding subjects it makes everything look very shady.
Some of us also tend to judge SJWs very strongly, so when you started associating with that crowd, the judgment eyes got very active.

No. 209563


Yeah no, I get that totally. Tbh I have few friends who fit the 'SJW' thing, I've actually cut a lot of the people out of my life that were toxic in that respect. After being in super abusive friendships, then them dropping me and blaming their issues on my existence, I finally let go of those nasty people. I hope it truly has a positive effect on me in the long run!!
