I agree with most of this post, but can I kinda put this out there that an artist ‘having potential’ is kinda bs.

how do you fuck up this bad. all you have to do is google 90's electronics she defended herself in the comments saying ~it's part of the same era~ when it's not. there are so many toys and consoles that are the hallmarks of the 90s and instead she just drew a bunch of early 2000s stuff mixed in with super early 90s stuff like a cassette player when CD players became very popular in the 90s. it's shitty. the whole composition, from concept to realisation, is trash. /sperg

I know it might seem cruel to make fun of someones abuse, but the weird tone of it annoys me. It feels so made for youtube?

I only got about halfway through and yeah, her tone is really strange. It sounds like she's wanting to cry, but she can't, but she knows this is dramatic so she has to pretend she is.

Minor blogpost, but as someone who experienced similar stuff, it's hard even for me to take this seriously. I've never understood how people make such "polished" videos about stuff like this… I always figured it'd be awkward as hell to edit these types of videos? You're revealing some serious emotional trauma, but you also have to make sure your sprites are timed correctly… More power to her, I guess.

No. 360194

As someone whose been through child abuse, I’ve never understood the people that make videos about their abuse. It’s not at all something I’d ever announce publicly and have my image/name tied to it, I don’t want people picking apart my story, or giving me pity. It just seems like a weird thing make a video out of.. why would you do it other than a ‘wahh give me attention, also this justifies any shitty behaviour of mine’? The only ones I can possibly understand are domestic abuse situations where you’re telling people red flags to look out for or rather than the abuse itself the steps you went through to cope with it and how you got out of the situation.

No. 360211

To me it just seems like these people find ANY REASON to post a storytime video for views even if it's fucked up shit and for an excuse to make edgy/dark art.
Guess it's like a new form of a broken girl attention whoring for sympathy like an emo girl showing her cuts and talks about her tragic backstory.

No. 360228

The whole tone of this video just rubbed me the wrong way. Like you stated it felt all made for youtube with the way this whole video was worded. Normally when I hear people talk about their abusive parent, ex, whatever; they're not using fancy language and metaphors - they're giving just basic statements on what happened. And honestly, the whole video felt like it was more of a PSA (or whatever) on suicide. There wasn't much of her "abusive father" in the mix, asides from it just being a backstory to what caused her to become suicidal at one point.

No. 360240

Definitely strangely disingenuous right off the bat, drawing a little girl lying beat up on the ground while describing her father's behavior, then immediately going on to explain he never physically abused her. Same with her description of his pedophilia: she brings forth what she poses as a horrifying accusation against him, but then says (paraphrasing) "he never actually sexually abused me; I could just SENSE he was attracted to me" and says how he spent time around her and looked at her.
A lot of aspects of this video come off as forced/artificial: the creepy music and drawings, the Shane-Dawson-esque sound effects and narration, etc., while talking about things that aren't even inherently creepy or unusual (like strict parents yelling about their children's underachieving and friend groups). She whimpers, cracks her voice, and constantly references her bad feelings while explaining almost nothing concrete or compelling behind her story, even representing things as simple as "I used the internet often" as tragic, horrifying experiences.

No. 360252

Damn that's some bad fake crying.

No. 360255

It comes off as very theatrical and artificially produced. I understand there has to be a script of some sort, cause she did have to animate around it.

She is definitely uninspired and has been since she's gone full time. I suspect she ekes out whatever pittance of creativity she has whenever she gets a big ticket sponsor so she'll have a video to shill. That's all it ever is with her anymore. Even the thumbnail makes me not wanna even bother clicking. Everything she makes is so vapid.

No. 360267

Hmm, I've talked about my own publicly, but it was a far more "spur of the moment" kind of thing… Sometimes specific things spark those kind of emotions and memories in you and it's hard to keep them down. That isn't the case for everyone, and I get why others wouldn't want to talk about it, but I think it's a case by case sort of deal.

But this video seems so contrived. To write a script, record lines, draw cheesy animatics blatantly dramatizing the abuse (bruises and scrapes for abuse that she admits wasn't physical? alright), and spending the time editing it all together… It makes it all so much less genuine to me. Honestly it does seem like it was made with getting views in mind, and it sucks to think that cynically, but I truly can't shake that impression. I guess that's what YouTubers are in it for, though.

No. 360269

there was nothing in this video that gave the impression that she wanted to talk about abuse. she just wanted to suicide bait for views. not in the sense of 'im gonna kill myself' suicide bait, but the kind that is like 'suicide is Bad because i had it but i Cured it' sort of way. it feels like a pander to the (im assuming) younger audience she has to seem more relatable by saying she had/has suicidal tendencies and an abusive father.

i honestly think this entier story is horse shit. the editing, the recording, the way the script is written; nothing in this is genuine or inspiring.

what bothers me the most is the fact in the video she claims to have attempted suicide 'on june 11ths of this year'. the video was posted to youtube on june 29 2018. that means in 18 days, a little over two weeks, she had attempted suicide, decided the root cause was her father, then wrote the script, recorded the audio, animated it, and then editted the video in the dramatic Shane Dawson way that she did. in 18 days.

this entire video stinks of 'depression LoL' clickbait.

No. 360487

No one in the local community likes her. She has been blacklisted from certain game companies. She is absolutely rude and uninterested for her fans when she attends cons. Also alledgedly she mentally abused her ex GF (PixelPlume) so hard she is still in therapy now. I don't have any more details on it but yeah most people hate her for being a Loish rip-off alone.

No. 360491

On this particular video which is 16 minutes long she used 3 ads. That's totally fine. I know youtubers who put in at least 5 ads in a 10 minute long video and that's not even rare. Plus what's wrong with sponsorships as long as it isn't every video like in Happys' case? She's very moderate in comparison to others. You sound jealous. There's only one thing I agree with you: listening to her complains are annoying af.

No. 360496

> Oof you must be jealous
Trust me, I don't envy these people and the stress that comes with trying to maintain a social media career, especially with how cut throat it has become over the years. But back the sponsorship bs. Sure, if we were to compare her to someone like Minnie Small or even Pearfleur (who only seem to post sponsored videos) yeah she does less but it's still annoying af when squarespace and skillshare are being pushed down your throat every other video.

anyway this latest one is funny cos she's like "I wanna do licensed Disney art, hey Disney notice me" to the extent of " i know this piece is bad but look at this copy I did of a mickey mouse last week" and it's like, yikes, still no.

No. 360551

I don’t understand this mentality, why are we, the audience, not allowed to be annoyed that we’re just seen as dollar signs? Sure, I understand that these people need to earn a living, and I can empathise with that, but it’s so fucking callous and obnoxious how many sponsors they have they try to sell us while clearly not using the service themselves, or the amount of ads they try to cram into videos that clearly didn’t take a significant amount of effort to film or edit. I and most likely many others are sick of being obviously treated like nothing more than a means for more as revenue, it completely puts me off of the creator.
I significantly prefer it when they have a patreon (even if it doesn’t have physical reward tiers like most artist ones do these days) because I can support artists of my own volition and I’ll be getting one ad/sponsorship per video max from what I’ve seen of most channels that have Patreon.

Real talk now, are there any other solid options to YouTube that isn't Instagram video? I thought of looking at Dailymotion or Vimeo but still haven't done my research.

Unfortunately mainstream social media is going to be monetized and full of advertising, no matter how much we sperg and complain here in lolcow. At least with those recorded advertising I can skip every 10 seconds of the video both in my phone or desktop and get straight to the video, but what about AdSense(or whatever that shitty advertising thing is named) that Kasey crams 5 at once in her 10minute videos? That shit I can't skip on my phone as much as I want and it uselessly spends my data.

Each and every one of these look so busy and tryhard.

This may seem petty but I really dislike her bug-eyed style and I hate the symbol/emoji shit she draws on the eye. It looks so offputting. Her designs are so unpleasant. You'd think by now she'd have grown out of this mess, but time and time again youtube artists never do.

She's one of those artists who's found her "style" and clings to it desperately because she's afraid she'll loose her core audience if she made the effort to actually study or improve.
Artists like her, once they find their audience, they don't budge. They just cater to who they get for ever and become complacent.

That's also people like Kasey and sakimichan, but there's a good discussion there; is there anything inherently bad about the complacency of artists? As long as people like their stuff and they're making a living it's all good right? You'd think the repetitive nature of their subjects would wear on these types eventually but who knows, maybe the money just really is that good.

No. 360637

Who the hell is bottom left even supposed to be

No. 360642

on one hand, yes, i can agree that if their is a demographic enjoying a certain type of work, then the artist has every right to pursue that demographic. but when you go after said demographic for so long, eventually the pursuit will come off as lazy or lacking actual passion, hence why people like lavendertowne and Kasey get so much shit. they have been going on for years and have not changed at all. a good comparrison to a yt artist at least trying to improve their art is Waffles, like comparing her art vids from a year ago to now is close to night and day. she is actively trying to get better and expirament with different methods, unlike the former two who are stuck in their ways and are learning nothing.

No. 360655

i think that the issue is with people who have hyperstylized art is that its so defined in what it is that its hard to kinda change? i dont think that either kasey or lavender have ugly styles (though i do not really like lavender's stuff all that much, its a tad tryhard). its just that in my opinion its easier for someone like waffles to improve because her style is more realistic than their's. kasey has some things she can clearly impove while still maintaining her style (composition and anatomy are the first to come to mind). but lavender shed probably have to over haul to make any improvement, because man does that girl really just wanna draw people with weird try hard character designs who seem to not have any bones to speak of

I don't really know the details and i dont have any caps to prove this because this happend a few years ago and she deletes a lot, but mainly companies don't want to hire her because she refuses to draw anything but her pretty girls. There is also the incident with Wacom.

She bought a Wacom Companion and had issues with it and contacted customer service. She wasn't satisfied and instead of continuing to maybe call or email Wacom she decided to harass the online spokesperson who initially talked to her and sending her whiteknights to them. It got to the point that Wacom told her to fuck off. Shortly before this happened Wacom asked her to collab like with other popular artists. She was stuck up and told she needed to talk to her manager and ended up demanding a rediculous amount of money from Wacom and Wacom said fuck this and pulled out.

She said she freelances at some point but we never see any of her stuff and I'd be surprised if companies actually hire her seeing how she can draw one thing in just one style. Her art is lazy and boring, at least what shows on IG is. I feel like she had potential at some point but ever since the fame got to her head, her art suffered a lot.

No one ever call him out on this before or said anything. In his videos he literally just traces and paints over stuff.

No. 361049

I always found it interesting when he would take his own photos and manipulate them before drawing over them, I considered it to be digital mixed media in a way, but it’s really scummy to do it to others creative works and take all the credit I think the photo manipulation has become a crutch at this point and he has no idea how to draw without a photographic foundation underneath

This is kinda petty, and I’m not sure if it really counts as milk, but am I the only that’s bothered by her saying ‘I would NEVER buy this with my own money’ like, I didn’t finish the video, but what a tacky thing to say when she’ll probably go on to also shill the product to her young audience and then buy more things with the money their impulse purchases earn her

No. 361060

I thought it was a lil weird too. I've also never understood why art companies charge so freaking much for packaging the supplies in a wooden box. Usually, they're decent boxes, but it`s so easy to get your own boxes and customize them or even find very similarly designed boxes at a lower cost.

In Liquid Color seems like a really nice lady though. She doesn't have any real milk afaik, even if it irks me somewhat that she's one of those art tubers who have giant collections of art supplies that they wouldn't feasibly be able to use in their lifetimes. (Which she admits herself in one of her vids that she has way too many watercolor paints for one person.)

No. 362162

Wooden boxes are a little impractical to me for watercolors. It's a wet medium stored in a container that has an ease to seep moisture inside of the material, no matter how many layers of water repellent substance they might have layered into the wood.

We have plastic and metal boxes for the sake of weight and practicality! Whereas wooden box(and the way materials are placed) would be tied to studio-only use.

You are true on one thing: Denise, alongside most art YouTubers who have a sizeable section of paint material reviews, suffers from hoarding and excessive buying. Buying and reviewing stuff is the bulk of their videos, reflecting on their collection left to gather dust.

Teoh at least seems to sell some of his tube paints in pans and make local giveaways for drawing tech he has reviewed over the years. I think it wouldn't hurt some of these creators who have patreons to make a giveaway of materials to certain patron tier's and patrons who have been there for the longest time. Could be an extra boost reward for fidelity.

This is actually a pretty common practice with stuff like concept art but you usually aren’t making high quality illustrations and selling them with shit that uses photographs in them, it all usually remains internal.

No. 362346

I mean, boats are wooden too and they seem to deal just fine with water.

And the wooden palettes are also clearly intended for only studio use, not everything has to be portable - plenty of artists work primarily from home, it makes sense to prefer a nicer looking material for your palette when it’s going to be on display essentially 24/7

I'm surprised I haven't seen a post about angelganev on instagram/youtube. I think his work is aesthetically pleasing and I understand artists can have unique styles but I feel like he gives every drawing the same fucking face. It bothers me so much. I feel like the characteristics that make a person's face unique he just strips away turning them into some kind of big lipped doll.I haven't lurked his youtube either but his page also has advertisements about it. One of the titles was "my thoughts on slut shaming" or something like that. This guy irritates me overall

nta but the original anon is right. Try comparing the art to the reference photos. He gave the black girl a tiny short nose when she actually has a long nose bridge. He gave the asian girl big lips with a round cupid's bow when she has small lips with a very noticeable dip in her cupid's bow. Look at the details, because he hasn't.

No. 363693

I agree with these anons. It's very lackluster. Although not every nose or eye shape he drew looks exactly the same, they still look rather lifeless and similar. The artist has talent, sure, but they're not really doing anything outstanding or unique here. Taking a photo reference and erasing the more unique characteristics of the model to draw a "prettier version" is just the easy way out in art. Talented, sure, but just nothing special or unique to see here.

To be fair I think the point was kind of an indirect way of telling other people not to buy it, basically telling her audience it's packaging is unnecessary and expensive for no good reason.

This mostly just bugs me when it's people spending crazy amounts of money on hoarding art supplies for no reason. I tend to give a pass on reviewers since that's what they do (and often it's gifted from viewers or companies), but I wish more would do something to make sure their collection sees some use after doing the review. I like Dr Oto Kano's solution of making sample paint cards for patrons on Patreon. Good way to engage and reward her audience with things she actually talks about, and incentivize people to supplement her income. Donating would be nice too.

No. 364096

these generic cartoony big eyes drawings are what people actually like. academic art and loomis head models aren't popular. people enjoy shiny pseudo anime baby doll girls like rossdraws ilya loish etc, it doesnt matter that theres no likeness and theyre just drawing one thing over and over. drawing someones actual fat/long head or a big nose or small eyes would offend. it wouldnt get any reposts or likes.

I am so fucking sick of all the Arteza reviews, I highly doubt that they’re nearly as good as all these youtubers who get the stuff for free/get paid to review are saying. Why are reviews within the art tuber community so disengenuous and almost always feel the need to say something along the lines of ‘I’d personally never use something like this, by it’s fine if you do!!’ no other community seems to do this.
Are there just so many kids watching that can’t help but reeee if anything over the cost of Crayola is said to be better because they themselves can’t afford it?

No. 364171

Saged for the blogpost.
I've tried some of the arteza supplies, and from my experience I'd call them higher end student-grade supplies.

They're great for beginners, and made for a nice donation of art supplies when I decided they weren't for me. But if you have any experience at all with art supplies, I'd give them a pass, with the exception of the watercolor paper. It's decent run-of-the-mill 140 lbs/300 gsm paper. The two-pack for $23 is great, but obviously only worth it if you do a lot of painting.

tl;dr I honestly don't now why people shill for them so hard, they're pretty comparable to store brand art supplies.

No. 364242

similar experience but I'd say their only good product is the water-soluble woodless pencils, they really melt fully as they say, and are a good alternative if you can't afford caran d'ache.
But their products are not lightfast and I've seen some of them sold on other brand names on fucking aliexpress of all things, and I've seen them there before arteza popped out on amazon.

No. 364251

I think it goes back to the limited amount / type of sponsors arttubers get and they don't want to burn bridges with the company or young kids that watch them…just like new makeup gurus rave about shit products in hopes of getting more pr to review. It is really irritating though and I avoid arteza reviews like the plague now.

I've only tried arteza gouache and for student grade, it's the best I have tried. Must be used from the tube though, they're more trouble than they're worth to try and reactivate once dry in pan/palette.

No. 364762

Extreme highlighting can work, the main issue here is the lack of extreme highlighting anywhere else on the face, and the over rendered/too dark shading on the nose. Since the shading is so centred on the nose it just looks really weird.

I mean if you're using extreme highlights blend it out a bit, throw some on the cheek where the light is coming from (instead of both) and then you'll get much nicer lighting probably

She's so ignorant of some basic things in art history. Like really, really basic things. I take it she's self-taught and didn't go to art school? Even if she didn't, I can't believe she's a professional artist who apparently has never noticed how intriguing the Mona Lisa's smile is before this video…

I think Kasey has the opposite problem to people who are all over the place and constantly searching for a 'signature style'. She's so entrenched in doing the same thing over and over again, telling herself it's her style, that she can't even deviate it from it to improve or learn.

No. 365234

She could've just…done some research. Though it was hilarious to watch her flail trying to recreate the Mona Lisa's details and wind up with something that doesn't even remotely resemble her, stylization notwithstanding. And then after that she just completely gave up and did whatever she wanted and rendered the point of the video completely pointless. Only "The Scream" was remotely recognizable and that's just because it's hard to fuck up, not because she did a good job. Her resistance to breaking out of her comfort zone is funny.

How does an artist not know who painted the Mona Lisa, that’s something that even the general public knows.

the Mona Lisa is in every fucking history book known to man, especially when talking about the renaissance. Leonardo da Vinci is mentioned all the fucking time; it was a fucking meme for YEARS to say Leonardo da Vinci was getting an oscar and not Leonardo DiCaprio. how did she go through being a self-taught artist on the internet, a place where you can learn LITERALLY ANYTHING, and then turn around and have no so little knowledge about classic art?…

her entire gripe about the mona lisa being dark and shit shows a complete lack of effort to learn anything about the renaissance. fuck, even color theory talks about this when covering just the history, something a google search can inform you about easily. yet, she sits there, irgnorant.

look, i get it. i love the whole 'draw this in your style' meme, but when you outright dont just ignore, but blatantly admit you avoided learning about the history behind a historical piece, sorry not sorry, you are not an artist. gatekeeping is a load of shit, but you can't make a video on HISTORIC ART and then not fucking learn even the wiki page about it!

It doesn't seem like she draws as much as she used to before she got a job, which is understandable. I think the main thing that's killing her art is her comfort zone has gotten smaller it seems. Even if it was just busts/half-bodies, she used to do a lot more detail and put a decent amount of effort into them. Nowadays it just seems like everything is a chibi doodle, her (poorly) copying another style, or a bust sketch that faces forward. Sorta sad, I guess. She'll probably only continue to stagnate and and get worse

don't put your art online dude, did you not get my argument? yes /some/ people are trashing art but not all, if you actually looked through the thread (and past ones) you'll see that there are plenty of genuinely good critiques, and that most of the trashing is towards artists acting inappropriately and in an immature manner. just because it's the internet, doesn't mean you can't have manners and shouldn't expect that after you have an attitude that someone will not act the same, respect is earned. and i contribute to here because, shocking, i am a artist and am still learning so seeing people in the threads point out mistakes in other's art helps me notice it in my own and allows me to improve and grow. the only person who is wasting your time is you, generalizing and being misinformed about this thread. and also, i am not using fucking lolcow to "deal" with any issues in my life, i'm mature enough to know that the best way to deal with my problems are from medical professionals, and the fact your first assumption of me was that i need to "trash" peoples art to "deal with whatever i'm going through" makes me think you have a toxic view of how people deal with their personal issues.

Also, I was a bit curious about this piece so I went to her store, but she doesn't even give a description or background to it. So i'm left with a lot of questions.

Why does it have a childishly stitched together thorax incision? She mentioned wanting his bones to glow through his jacket "like a shark".

It seems like no matter what medium she uses she can't create any variation in her work. At least with mediums like acrylics and oils you can use a palette knife and pivot to an impressionist style, but that would get in the way of creating her usual boring shit. I honestly wish she would take a break from painting people and try animals for a change, make a challenge out of it and see if that helps.

No. 366568

Animals, landscapes, buildings, statues in a museum, anything really- or even some figure drawings if she has to draw people, it would help a lot with the stiffness in the poses and bring some much needed variation in body shapes

No. 366570

I think part of it is that she's just switching mediums, but not trying to take advantage of some of the unique features those mediums have. Which is fine when starting out and just trying to learn the basics, but since she wants to push herself she'd really benefit from also changing her subject matter when trying new mediums. It would allow her to focus less on what she's familiar with and more on the medium itself.

No. 366575

That's why I thought she could have used a palette knife with the oil paints instead of a regular brush. When I'm in a slump, the palette knife forces you away from keeping things "perfect" and it makes for some pretty interesting paintings.

No. 366581

Definitely agree. In this case she probably would have even just been better off with a bigger brush. She's using such a tiny brush and that just forces her to focus too much on the little things from the start

No. 366593

Personally, I love Danica's style. I find it very soothing and relaxing. I guess the aesthetic speaks to me and I really don't want her to change her style or go more expressive. But I think she is using new mediums as an excuse. In the past she has mentioned that she wants to do serial work as in comics or graphic novels. She's also done a few pieces that had some sort of narrative to them. I think she is "branching" out to give herself some sort of reason as to why she is not moving on to more serious work.

No. 366631

Why on earth would you not want an artist you admire to get more expressive?
Especially since you mentioned her wanting to branch out and do comic/graphic novel work.

I mean;
Comics is one of the most shorthand (aka expressive) communication styles of art there is! And graphic novels (as far as I know) require even more depth and thought in each panel, both composition and detail wise, with plenty of narrative environmental pieces as well.

If she's serious about doing graphic novels, she needs to work on a lot more than just character expression. Things like scene composition, landscapes etc etc

I'd honestly love to watch her work on improving her skills in those areas! I'd subscribe just for that,even if it was just an occasional dedicated video here and there.

AND it would really set her apart from the "making bust up portraits only" YT art crowd.

No. 366640


There is a difference between putting more thoughts into each drawing, working on composition, background etc and being expressive ala using a pallet knife as other anons have suggested. What I meant was I don't want her to change her style (the way she draws the human body/color scheme/mood)
But I completely agree. She needs to step up her game and actually do the graphic novel/comics. She has what it takes to start and watching her waste her time/energy is kinda unnerving.

No. 366650

I…think you misunderstood me? Sorry, but I'm not the anon talking about palette knives, and I definitely wasn't implying that the only way to be expressive is to use splashy loud ways of painting.

All i said, was that I think she should work more on conveying more narrative through scene composition, light values, and FACIAL expressions than what she's currently doing.

No, of course she doesn't have to change her style. It's her trademark.

Exactly! She needs to start drawing some characters actually emoting, interacting with an environment, conversing, SOMETHING that isn't the same stiff "i'm such a beautiful tortured soul" OC portraits she keeps doing.

Glad we agree on that!

Not really salt but there’s been a lot of copycats of 80s/90s anime art style. Don’t get me wrong, I adore this style but after seeing this so much on Twitter it makes me wonder if copying another artist’s artstyle is going to be the norm and it’s making me sad that they tend to get more traction compared to people who’ve spent years developing their own style.

Something that really fucks me off about pretty girl art is that pretty is apparently synonymous with soulless.

They all have the same dead eyed stare into the distance

No. 366871

Again, the lack of storytelling in a lot of online art in general is mind boggling to me. Art is so more than just OC portraits and fan art.

Why not create actual scenes for their characters, put them in a setting and let them be doing something other than posing. Or maybe do a piece that let's the scene composition say something about their world or the character.

I'm not talking about creating fully rendered masterpieces, just…an attempt at creating another world and telling a story with their art once in a while.

No. 366882

Drawing a blank-faced face and shoulders is 100x easier than setting a character in a background and drawing the full body convincingly. They are all stuck in their comfort zone.

I'm sick of everything having lesbians in it because its always straight people writing characters that aren't like any real lesbian that would ever exist, its just regular het drama with makeup and pastel colours pasted over it. I prefer zero representation to misrepresentation, but then these stories aren't really aimed at lesbians, they just want to get off and/or pat themselves on the back at other people's expense.

No. 366959

YES! I love comic books, but almost every book I’ve bought recently has lesbians just for the hell of it and none of them are accurately written in the slightest.

No. 366993

Lesbians are older when they have their first relationship, so they have had the chance to get comfortable being alone with themselves before they ever have a relationship, it is usually calmer/more mature than straight relationships in the same age group. Growing up gay means coming to terms with the fact you might be single your whole life, since there aren't really that many of us out there, never mind ones with a mutual attraction. Lesbians don't have a girl-crazy phase where they lose their sense of self in a bid to get a partner, even if they are lonely they know who they are and stick to it. I think there is a lot less spite during fights as well.
Of course there are exceptions for both sides, but I think it gets confused by the fact there are a lot of het/bi girls that call themselves lesbian because they have an unstable identity. This is just personal opinion but I see a lot of similarities in lesbians to autistic women (I'm around both), e.g. not wearing something that you feel uncomfortable in even if you would look more "normal" in it. Hope this makes sense.

it is why people paint same-y bullshit and do story time after storytime after sketchbook tour after art challendge; they are the first to show up in the search bar. and people click on thumbnails like Ross because it is a pretty girl that 'looks artistic' or has a fandom connection. in the end, yt artists limit themselves over money. why try to gain any new experience or skills when what you are already doing gets you money?

People hear gay people are people just write them like people. Yeah they are people and the context of their entire lives differs from yours if you are straight. Write them as people first but you're probably not a great writer if you view things from your own point of view when writing someone who isnt going to hold the same experiences in our culture. It's like Holly writing gay/bi men from the lens of an early 20s edgy straight girl.

Most of what you said just sounds like maturity tbh. Most people who are older are comfortable being alone with themselves before they enter a relationship, for whatever reason may have come to terms with potentially being single for whatever reason, etc.

No. 367275

NTA but I responded to a similar question in a different thread, I’ll paste it here since it’s relevant

- they’re lesbians just because. It adds absolutely nothing to the story, it doesn’t impact their characters whatsoever and there was obviously little to no thought put into it
- they’ll act like a het couple in the sense that none of the problems they come across will be wlw specific, and almost always there’s a “woman” and “man” dynamic involved. One will be hyper feminised and quite meek/submissive, while the other is very masculine in their behaviour, often larger than the femme, and extra points if they make them dress like a teenage boy.
- it’ll come off as fetishisation if there’s an absurd amount of gays in the story, almost every single relationship will be wlw when real life isn’t like that at all
- and lastly, they somehow never ever face any sort of homophobia. It’ll often be set in a modern time and everything will reflect reality, except how everyone is apparently just fine and dandy with everyone being a lesbian. These women seemingly never gave any sort of struggles to do with their sexualities

Long story short, don’t make them lesbians unless you actually have good reason to, it’ll impact the story in a meaningful way, and you treat them like actual human beings that will have faced struggles

Okay, but why do lesbians have to suffer homophobia to be considered legit? The author makes up the rules for that world, they could be in a safer part of said world or it just might not exist. Or maybe the author just doesn't want homophobia in their story. An author creating fiction can say this reflects our world except Coca-Cola doesn't exist, and they can because they're the author.

It sucks that lesbian characters have to have a 'good' reason to exist as opposed to their heterosexual counter parts. They have to be more impactful and meaningful and be perfect WlW couples without a hint the gender roles they were likely raised to conform to.

No. 367340

They don’t HAVE to suffer through homophobia, but these characters never have anything that sets them apart from others other than eating each other out. These women wouldn’t experience the world exactly the same way that straight people would, and if the story wouldn’t change in any way if you were to make one of them a man then you’re not a very good writer. It’s like making a character black for the hell of it and it in no way impacts who they are as a person, which in turn in no way impacts the rest of the world

i understand having a set of various similar supplies. if you paint, you are going to have varying paints, if you draw, you are gonna have various markers and pencils and pens. but the people that have ALL THE SHIT, like baylee jae, with the fucking beads and felt glue and just hoards of junk, most of it given to them through sponsored content- learn to throw shit away, god damn…

I wouldn’t really call having multiples of a medium you consistently use a hoard though.

Pic related, I have a fuckton of watercolour paints, but they all actually add some sort of value to my work in that I actually use them and they all serve some sort of purpose.

What I meant with my original post is that many youtubers seem to buy supplies just for the hell of buying them and then showcase them in a single video, then these supplies are never ever used again. They’re often not even displayed or within reach. I feel like these supplies could all very easily be given away, whether it’s to their followers or donated to a community centre/school/shelter, and all those supplies would actually be used rather than just rotting away at the back of their clutter drawer. A lot of their studio tours consist of showcasing all the many many supplies they have that no one person could ever make use of and they’re just carelessly tosses around. I’m not saying anyone is entitled to the things they’ve bought, but they should be more mindful of their purchases and stop excessively buying all of these supplies imo

It’s nothing but greedy and vapid, their reviews hardly ever hold any actual worth

First off, this thread is in Off Topic for a reason.

Secondly, the reason why some of us are so positively inclined towards Waffles probably has something to do with her being perceived as a positive influence in the online art community, particularly for the younger audience demographic.

Some of us also just happen to believe in constructive criticism and being happy for others when they succeed.

No. 368067

I got the 36 set and I'll be honest, they're not worth it. M Graham has a similar consistency to them in that they are sticky, but M Graham is a superior brand if you live in the US. Also, the earthtone range is a friggin joke, their yellow ochre is a 3 pigment blend when it should be a single pigment. Also, a couple of colors in the set are not lightfast, such as their ultramarine light and a few of their earth tones and sap green. People praise their paints as being super vibrant, which is great an all, but tinting them down is a bit tricky. Another point to note is that trying to buy the tubes separate from a set is rather expensive, which sucks but again M Graham is a better alternative in when it comes to price and reliability. Honestly, I regret getting these paints, I got them after seeing a few videos from PearFleur and wish I hadn't.

No. 368072

I got the 24 set recently, it’s a really good price on amazon and I love them. I’m not crazy about granulation personally and only one of the colors in the 24 set has granulation (one of the blues can’t remember which) some of the pigment mixing are a bit odd like one anon said but I don’t really mind as I try to only mix single or double pigment colors, but everyone’s different I think there great though and if you live in the us jacksons art supply sells single tubes at a great price

Daniel Smith are my current favourites, with M Graham currently coming a close second, I’ve found that the Holbein paints are all a bit too opaque for my taste and don’t granulate enough.

That’s a shame, I’m interested in trying them because of PearFleur as well, they look quite vibrant and translucent on video, but all the reviews I can find are quite mixed and extreme.

No. 368176

Yes, absolutely agree, I'm all for lesbian and black people representation, even if they are just black or gay for the heck of it and it does not contribute to the characters personality or story at all. Or it is the point of the story that they are the only gay lesbian in a community of white heteros. That is all fine but I absolutely despise characters or storys that are purely written for the purpose of having a gay or black character with no further depth. E.g. Zahra is black, sexuality lesbian, likes her black skin, hobbys looking at her beautiful fat black body in the mirror, dislikes homophobes, racists and fatphobia, who does she look up to herself because she is a beautiful fat black lesbian goddess. This is a case of really bad writing, the only way I could see how this could be saved is if she was the only one in the story like this and it was about a narcist who comes to realize there is more in the world. But a lot of stories tend to have all characters as plain and unrounded as this and that is just bad writing but people love it because "black lesbian representation"

Honestly? Just go with the bigger option, it’s more economic in the long run because you won’t run out so fast and it’ll cost less than it would to replace it, but it may be cheaper to get the 10/15ml tube and fill pans with it if you can find it reasonably priced or on sale anywhere.

No. 368246

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll see. I live in Latin America and prices of art materials shipped from US eBay sellers are ridiculously over priced, over twice the price of the original item. Jackson's at least has something like a £3 shipping so I can pile it up with other orders (like Mijellos Prussian green and a small, postcard-sized watercolor pad). And given the ridiculously underpriced currency of where I live, every American penny can save up in the cost+shipping is worth it.

I always find it sad when her old sketchbook tour is recommended to me. Yeah, they’re not amazing, but they’re diverse. Compare it to her sketchbook now and it’s like she’s constantly just drawing the same woman over and over again, just wearing different wigs and clothes.
Also, does any one else get slightly irked at how much prettier she draws herself? I know artists tend to embellish themselves a bit, and so many will look cuter because of the style, but she makes herself as thin as a model with bombshell waves and it’s just not .. accurate in the slightest.

No. 368493

Samefag, but here’s a sketchbook tour from 2016 - her art hasnt changed in the slightest ever since she gained an ounce of popularity, and at this point I think she’s drawn herself into a corner and if she were to try to change things up a bit she’d lose a huge chunk of her following = significant portion of her income would lost too

No. 368545

Pretty-girl artists are a dime a fucking dozen but I have never seen an artist as samey and boring as her, it's so disappointing to watch.

I remember sometime before I finally unfollowed her, she complained about not fitting in well as an artist in Cali and it just didn't surprise me in the slightest.

honestly this bitch dumb as fuck. anyone that says they want to be an artist is told by LITERALLY EVERYONE that it isnt a real job, that you wont make enough money, that you'll need another job, etc. you are more likely to fail than to succeed as an artist, and this bitch complains about silicon valley being expensive and competitive? DUH!

you are in a business that grooms failure, and you expect to be handed money and a silicon valley lifestyle on a silver platter? someone didnt work enough 9 to 5 jobs to appriciate making money period, let alone on the art they make, and you can tell. i wish i could make money drawing the same hipster, same face syndrome, 'not-like-other-girls' looking bitches in every illustration, but alas, i have bills to pay, and my time goes to paying them in a way that doesnt include a luck-based lottery on 'how cool uwu' my fanart is.

did a little digging because these tweets royally pissed me off, in her about page on her website, it says she got a BFA from laguna college of art an design.

No. 368672

She's wasted so much time drawing those same weak-ass expressionless waif witch girls that now that she's out there she's figuring out that it's not as impressive as she thought. I get having a brand but not once has she ever been able to spin a story or meaning or even put a twist on her singular one-note theme to justify her drawing the same shit over and over. She kind of boxed herself in because she thought she could ride the "witchy girl with tattoos" wave indefinitely, like, she really thought that it was sustainable.

If not, it's a bit sad to see, but not terribly unusual for online avatars either.

I also seem to recall her having drawn fuller bodied witches before…not sure why she couldn't do so for her avatar/channel OC or whatever.

No, that’s her, here’s a speedpaint of a ‘self’ portrait. It’s not unusual for avatars to be prettier/cuter, but usually not to this degree. If they’re overweight they usually make their persona at least chubby, whereas hers is an ideal figure. I don’t really understand why either since she pushes herself to be seen as body positive

you should be able to draw anything you're asked to, but once you're working, i don't think sameface is a problem for illustrators. see every book you loved as a kid.

someone like robert mcginnis, who worked constantly and probably did every book cover from the sixties on had horrible sameface and even samebody, outside of hair color after a point all of his girls look exactly alike. i think it's more what you do with it. his use of color etc. is amazing and his layouts are also really pleasing. being an old dude he was super informed by the pulps but when we learned about him in history class i got much less concerned about samefacey shit, if you start getting paid, no one's going to care much and it'll be seen as your trademark or look. it's definitely not what we're taught but i think in the end no one cares, look at audrey kawasaki or mark ryden or whoever's hot this second (because i know they're not but can't wake up lol) and tell me that's not absolute sameface.

She's just another boring, basic artist peddling her pretty girls. Nothing much more to her than that. I always feel so detached from her videos because she seems so uninteresting. I can't say that she's not passionate about what she does, but I also get a 'business as usual' vibe from her.
I guess if kids love it it's fine though. She's relatively harmless.

No. 369173

Might be her lack of skill in drawing any other person other than the same pretty girl model.

Yeah a lot of artists make their avatars look cuter/prettier or more interesting than what the look IRL. It's very jarring when you see what the artist really looks like sometimes because they are nothing like their avatar and usually uglier/fatter/balder.

I think the only artist (not a youtube artist though) that I know who makes their avatar uglier than they really are is Katie Tiedrich AKA Akward Zombie. She draws herself with acne, frumpy clothing, with a slouch, very graceless and all around unflattering. I thought she was a dude at first and was honestly surprised when I saw a picture of her. She's not incredibly beautiful or gorgeous or anything but she is way prettier than how she depicts herself.

This reminds me of an artist I found a while ago. I found them through their "Meet the Artist" video and I really liked their artwork. Great lining technique, dynamic pose, good coloring.

Building a decent art community takes time, even years. This means opening the doors to all sorts of people.

My group of artist friends has been going strong for almost ten years now and most of the original members (with the exception of 1) are still active on a daily basis. The key is to choose members not just based on their skill level, but on their creativity, willingness to improve and on their quality as people. Sometimes this means accepting novices. Those novices will eventually improve and then help others do the same.

I've been in a few exclusive groups that only accept 'skilled artists' and those tend to burn out quick because you'll end up with a lot of big egos and clashing personality when skill level is your only criteria for accepting new members. But being surrounded by only novices can also be a bad thing as it can stunt your growth as an artist. The key is finding that happy medium.

There is a lolcow discord going around, but it might not be the best place for starting a community because a lot of people are not going to want their art/social media accounts to be associated with a gossip site.

Good luck with your search.

I don't think the upper body is that much of an issue, one of the many perks of drawing in a heavily stylised style is not having to adhere to absolute realism after all.

I don’t see how that is at all relevant, plenty of 14 year olds don’t have access to drawing tablets, they just use paper instead. It’s just that these kids will be passionate about art and practice it for fun, money has absolutely nothing to do with it

Beginners tend to not admire those not too far ahead of themselves as they’re at achievable levels, plus youtubers are better liked for their personalities than their skills.

We were literally just discussing the digital portfolio from back when she was 14, an age when few have their own disposable income.

That's why in this case, and any other medium that requires some form of premium materials, I believe money can matter a whole lot in regards to someone's early growth.

But it's whatever.
I'm not gonna derail the thread by arguing about class inequality and how many people are outright discouraged from pursuing art (for example in strict muslim families) with a rando artisté on lolcow.

So how about we focus back on the art.

IDK, I imagine I’m gonna get the same type of comment but I’ve been following Dina for a while and I really like her work. A while back she posted a couple of videos with her school work from her year at FZD and it’s so good! The level of detail on her drawings of complex buildings and spaceships really impressed me. She used to work as a concept artist before she became more freelance/published her own book, which is p cool.

Her 14 year old was pretty eh though but whose wasn’t

No. 370451

>I'm not gonna derail the thread by arguing about class inequality

Oh yes anon, you’re absolutely right, her skills at 14 have absolutely EVERYTHING to do with disposable income and nothing to do with her own hard work. Povo kids might as well just give up I guess.

For all you know she was using a second hand tablet on the family computer in the living room, it doesn’t at all reflect her own disposable income - most kids get birthday gifts.

>how many people are outright discouraged from pursuing art (for example in strict muslim families)

Listen mate, not my fault your Muslim parents told you not to draw and if they’re so strict that was probably the least of your problems, I don’t see why you’re getting so fucking ass blasted that I had the nerve to point out that at age 14, when she was a beginner, she made beginner mistakes. It was disingenuous for you to say she was better than the youtubers ITT. And like another anon said, being better than Rae or Baylee is no achievement

>What pointers would you have given her to improve her art? What are these glaring beginner mistakes in your opinion?

If you’re at the level that you want some rando artisté on lolcow to hold your hand guide you through what her beginner mistakes were and how to correct them (which she clearly doesn’t need help with because she got better) then you should go work on your fundies and not shit up the thread by critiquing others when you have no idea what you’re talking about.

So videos from even popular youtubers are now going to be considered self posts for no reason?

I have no idea what they’d be like in humid places as I live somewhere extremely dry, but even here the paint stays sticky in my travel palette
Con: I always somehow get it on my fingers and it takes much longer to dry so I can close said palette
Pro: the colours are so vibrant and the honey makes the paint very easy to rewet and immediately get a highly pigmented result

If you’ve only ever used cotmans before I’d recommend just getting a few small tubes from different brands so you can get a taste for what you like - student grade don’t vary too much outside of how much filler they use whereas with artist grade you’ll have things like single/mixed pigments, granulation and transparency to consider. In the end it all comes down to individual taste and whether or not you’re going to display or sell originals

Wait, which picture is the drawing and which is the original? Because the two of them look the exact same to me… Even with the process shot in the middle I'm heavily inclined to say the one on the right (?) is just photo with some filters and brush strokes added to it…

In my opinion that type of stuff isn't art, just because there's no actual thought or 'artistic opinion' put into the piece, if that makes sense. In general I don't care for hyper realistic art but with the really good stuff you can tell the artist put a lot of thought on what they wanted to paint and how they were gonna do it. There's no thought in these images, IMO.

The fact the "WIP" looks like this is hilarious. This isn't how people paint. You don't just take a random corner and finish that one corner without touching the rest of the piece (actually, children do this, but adults who can actually draw know that you have to continually refine the whole image for accuracy and cohesion).

Wonder if she lurks. It's interesting that this popped up right after we were discussing it.

Looking at some of her other process shots, I wonder if she's also using a filter to make the line art. Her lines are so meticulous and unnecessarily detailed for something that'll be covered up by the quote unquote rendering. I attached another piece of hers to show what I mean. There's so many tiny lines that are gone in the final image. It reminds me of those paint by numbers kits. People don't sketch like this.

I'm gonna go against the grain here and say that I kinda agree with Jacquelin. This doesn't apply to every artist, but there are people out there with very unique styles in regards to their consistent use of linework/rendering/theme and when you see someone else draw pictures that look just like the other person's… it's a bit iffy to me.

Of course, this is all subjective and most cases of "art style theft" can be bottled down to all art is stealing + artists often influence each other so BUT I will say sometimes it really does feel like people are deliberately copying someone else's whole gimmick just so they can cash on it.

Nonetheless, it's very hard to actually argue this and as such it's mostly a dead topic IMO

No. 371848

Personally, I don’t understand the argument here because there seems to be a limit where people will straight-up hate a person due to their style looking too similar to another (more bigger artists).
Ex: a lot of people, primarily when Cyarine became ‘big’ didn’t like her because it looked like she heavily referenced Loish’s artwork
Does anyone else (besides >>371788 ) think that there’s a limit to reference another artist’s artwork?

No. 371879


Just took a look at their instagrams. The work is pretty similar but then again all they both draw are portraits of edgy girls with bold makeup which is the heavy standard for 70% of today's popular artists lol

They're similar styles but the concept is unoriginal AF and to waste time fretting over this is to give oneself a headache for pleasure.

No. 371898

I feel like most people are just trying to piggy back off the success of popular artists…. like person (x) becomes popular so a ton of people copy person (x). It kinda sucks for the original artist cuz their ideas and concepts end up just being popular lazy tropes that are stolen by 13 year olds desperately trying to get popular or adults who can’t be fucked to put in some effort to make their art somewhat theirs so they just kinda ride on the coat tails of another successful artist.

No. 371923

But would you argue that it isn’t a coincidence that some artists ‘suddenly develope’ The same style as said popular artists?

I feel like there should be a limit to how much you copy another artist. Being a carbon copy of another artist is not okay to me.

But my reasons for being against it is different from the usual arguments I hear.

It's not the art of "stealing" itself that bothers me. Rather, I feel that when a young artist is doing everything EXACTLY like another artist they're stiffing their own creativity and becoming the poor man's version of that bigger, more popular artist. Worse is when they copy from an artist that lacks technical skill and then go on to repeat those mistakes instead of trying to learn the fundamentals.

That being said I've come across very few exact carbon copies of other artists. Usually it's just people taking inspiration from the artists that they look up to (which is okay to me)

No. 372270

I mean, sage, but this.

The problem is that a lot of beginner artists don't know how to pump the brakes when they're trying to emulate a style. Many of them lack the ability to edit themselves, so it ends up being a lot of symbol drawing. Plus they don't have a grasp on how to incorporate studies into their art, if that's something they're looking to do, not everyone who draws is interested in studying their fundamentals.

No. 372337

Imo the reason most artists have boring backgrounds is because they’re just drawing something because it’s pretty/easy, not because they want the drawing to actually represent something (other than prettyness). So start by asking what you want to represent and work backwards from there. Don’t just start looking up “easy leaves tutorials” or “cute patterns for backgrounds” just my 2cents.

What I’ve found is that the backgrounds which try to communicate a “message” or a mood of the illustration helps a lot. Try referencing a lot of real life images for their lighting/inspiration, or even some movies, or, as anon (>>37241) said, look at background artists’ work.
There’s also this thing called rule of thirds, which is a simple principle, but it really helps in composing the image

A bit of a nitpick, but it’s really disingenuous of her to label herself as a traditional artist in this scenario when up until recently she exclusively worked in digital. The title implies that it’s someone who is unfamiliar working in digital, it’s such shitty clickbait

No. 374147

>And are you implying that artists shouldn’t use references if you personally don’t like their stylistic choices
I’m not. There are plenty of services available to obtain reference photos that are specifically for artists to use, or artists can take their own photographs using people and models. This is the information that should be shared instead of a bunch of Illya Kushinov imitators saying it’s fine to photobash any photography they find.

And yes, that style is heavily anime influenced. The creator of the video specifies in the comments his art is inspired by anime. Illya Kushinov works in the anime industry.

Influenced would be the keyword here.

And there’s nothing wrong with using other people’s work to reference from as long as you don’t trace it nor take credit for the original concept, artists shouldn’t be limited to only stock images.

You're acting like photographers own human anatomy. Besides the rough pose and facial expression nothing was copied from the image. Both of which are not creditable to the original artist (in this case the photographer). The specific combination of lighting, pose, background, model, acting colors, grading, focus point, lens usage etc THAT belongs to the artist. You honestly need to get over yourself and broaden your horizon a little if you think this guy takes the work of the photographer cause it really shows how little you seem to know about photography.

Maybe those people with 'crap art' are self aware and want to improve so they are chill with unsolicited crit because it actually helps them toward their goal of being half decent.

Plus I've seen several professional artists offer unsolicited crit. It's really just a case of people who like to give criticism unsolicited, also tend to enjoy receiving it as well. I like receiving crit, no matter the situation, solicited or unsolicited. I stopped giving it unsolicited years ago because I recognized that a lot of people obviously didn't like it, but I hate that that is the standard just because I miss getting criticism all the time. I definitely miss being part of a community where criticism was standard if you posted something and where everyone was just chill about receiving and giving criticism.

Her art really isn't that bad, I was just being a shithead lol.

I have noticed that her linework all has the same weight to it though. There is very little variation. She doesn't draw a lot of people, but when she does the anatomy is kinda wack.

I just thought it was funny that she implied that she was really good in these areas, when it's actually a bit weak. Colors are fine, but samey.

Her stuff is repetitive but it isn’t bad, and maybe she has a point. Don’t get me wrong unsolicited critique is part of being an artist online and there are plenty of thin skinned uwu babies out there, but look at Solar Sands and Deviantcringe. A lot of talented artists with names for themselves don’t give out unsolicited critique because it can be bad PR. Look at how many anons here claim to work in the industry but also say outing yourself of an anon here is career suicide. People need to accept critique maturely because it isn’t going anywhere but why should we encourage morons to build platforms on bad advice they dont even understand.

No. 374739

It's not wrong for linework have the same weight to it. It's just a matter of preference and some things just look better with it. Like pin designs. So I wouldn't say it's wrong or bad.

Same with colors, if they are planning products and stuff to sell, it's good that they work well together. People collect pins so it's nice they look good together, kinda like from the same collection. If everything they make would be different, it could get really messy.

I admit to nitpicking, but "bullshit"? even within the parameters of "minimal cartoon" theres no real artistic reason she can't draw adult face shapes or or use complementary palettes with contrast.

Meyoco's palette tones are actually moreso saturated. Pastels can be used very well when applied properly, like most rococo painters did. but a lot of the times cartoonists use them in a super boring way without enough deeper tones to bring it all to a balance.

To all the anons that think unsolicited critique is overwhelmingly a good thing - would you feel the same way if complete strangers gave you unsolicited advice in other aspects of your life? After all, they’re just trying to help.

I don’t see why artists are expected to gracefully accept all unsolicited advice and critiques of their work (something which is usually very personal), but other people aren’t expected to do the same in their careers.

Plus, most unsolicited critiques just boil down to ‘you’re bad at this! This is wrong!! But I have no idea how to actually fix these problems as I myself don’t have good enough foundational knowledge to avoid these problems so I’m not going to offer any advice.’ Another issue is that critiques will often completely ignore what is good/correct in a piece, when it is equally important to let the artist know what they’re doing so they keep applying these aspects to their future pieces.

Just food for thought. And I do agree, majority of the anons ITT have mediocre skills at best and have no idea what they’re talking about other than a very beginner level of seeing problems but not knowing how to fix said problems.

I think giving unsolicited critique is a shitty thing to do if not asked for, but I also think a popular IG artist can take the high road and ignore critical comments, especially when she is most assuredly receiving overwhelmingly positive comments. Instead of throwing a fit and making yourself look like a melodramatic asshole, leave a clear message that you do not want any critique and leave it at that.

I think the issue here is less about approving of unsolicited criticism and more the way she presented her opinion while also throwing in "btw u guys who do it are bad at art lol." It's super petty, and it's the reason why she's getting blasted on twitter.

Just look at redline/redraw there, half the art there looks just as bad as that of the cows we mock.
Meyco's acting cunty but she ain't wrong. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say most of the critics here aren't great, or even decent artists either. It's classic Dunning-Kruger.

that wasn't a criticism. I am saying that it is extremely hypocritical of her to suggest that her own anatomy is good when she puts a squashed baby head with bulging eye sockets on top of a terrible skeleton shape.

I guess digital work makes her into a total slacker. She has been capable of going beyond her shitty "style" for years but would rather sell pink baby doodles than make any really good work.

That's fair enough. A lot of artists get stuck in boxes based around profit, so I kind of get it. The work she does now sells well if what she implies on twitter is true.

I am saying that she is a hypocrite who doesn't apply good color theory or lineart or anatomy to her work. Objectively, what she does can't be evaluated seriously by any academic or industrial standard.

My point is that she is suggesting that her art is holier than thou, (anatomy, color, lines), but it is pretty much just trash draped in kawaii tricks.

She sells pins and decorations that little girls and childish women and other embarrassing people like, but she doesn't work in comics or animation or illustration or have many mutual followers in the industry, because her art isn't actually developed or skilled enough to do anything like that.

She doesn't NEED to be a technically skilled artist. But it is incorrect to imply that she is so far above everyone else.

Of course I had embarrassing phases that's growing up. everyone's embarrassing for a few years. but I love the style of anime, cartoons, comics, videogames, everything.
there are tens of thousands of great artists to every art style and era. meyo isn't one of those. it has nothing to do with her style and everything to do with her bad lazy technique.

you guys don't have any reading comprehension on here, but I have repeatedly stated that there is nothing wrong with making vapid art. she doesn't need to improve or advance what she does. she can do the same thing over and over and make good money for it like margaret keane.

but she implied that she is already at the point that she can draw like someone who does real studies and training. she is not. the 'thin skinned pussy' artists she sneers down on are pretty much her peers.

Somehow, I agree with you both. No, she doesn't really have to work in the industry for her to be cosidered a "legit artist" (or something), or to make anything other than cute art if that's what works for her. BUT I also think she's a hypocrite and she's just as thin-skinned as the people she's unsuccessfully trying to call out in her original tweet. It's hypocritical to try and clap back when your tweet ends up reading like "I'm sensitive uwu don't call me out, I can dish it out but can't take it because all the counterarguments defending me boil down to <M-muh style>"

I mean, they have points. People accept and want criticism in different ways.

In a classroom, work, etc. environment I would expect feedback from my peers, colleges, and bosses.

Posting online to Instagram, twitter, etc. not so much, especially when you consider that
1. Many people don't know how to give critique and a lot of it boils down to "This looks bad/wrong/not my personal tastes and you should fix it/i have no idea how to help you fix it" when they didn't commission the work. 2. think that people have to listen to their criticisms, which gets ugly and complicated when you have two people who think you should listen to them but they have contradicting criticisms. 3. People online can have no sense of personal boundaries.

Mix all of that together and it is likely why people dislike giving and recieving critiques they didn't ask for. Not to mention, giving critique is a learned skill… which means whatever criticism you give to someone is also subject to criticism because getting critique on how you give critiques is the only way to get better at giving critiques. Now, if someone were saying not to give critiques in a school, work, etc. environment I'd be more inclined to say they simply have to grow thicker skin because some people really do only want asspats and compliments.

>People accept and want criticism in different ways.
Which is fine, but most people here seems to have issue not so much with the fact that she doesn't like unsolicited criticism so much as the fact that she's assuming everyone who does want to receive and give it are all terrible artists who she's superior to. Plus the implication that people who aren't top tier artists aren't allowed to have opinions about art.
It's one thing to say you don't like receiving unsolicited criticism, it's another to insult everyone who isn't like you.

No. 376036

I do agree with the sentiment though that beginner artists have no place critiquing the work of established artists. They won’t be able to provide any sort of help or information on how to fix a problem they’ve noticed, or why it’s even a problem in the first place, and this is purely because they are beginners and are they themselves learning their fundamentals. A lot of beginners also won’t realise that pointing out what’s working in a piece is also an upon part of critiques, hell most people online seem to forget this.

Critiques are evaluations, not criticisms.

No. 376051


tbf beginner artists really shouldn't be giving critiques to intermediate, advanced, and established artists. yeah, you don't have to be a chef to know if a dish needs salt but you also do have to know whether or not salt is even the right seasoning for the dish, whether the choice to add or not have salt is viable for the dish, etc. a lot of things that a chef with more experience than one who just started or one who isn't knows. likewise, it's the same with art. sure a non-artist or beginner can point out what is wrong, but only someone who has a relatively or even semi-grounded understanding of fundamentals can point out when something needs to be fixed and how to fix it.

it's the difference between "this looks weird" and "this isn't working the way you want it too because the colors are too saturated"

I care about his art, that's why I'm in artist salt.
From an artists perspective, I think it's bad.
I get that he's categorized himself as a drama youtuber in the art community but as an artist youtuber himself he's fundamentally and stylistically lacking.
If I saw it as it is now trending on art forums (which it wouldn't) I wouldn't click on them or comment.

He brushes off other artists he disagrees with as just being mainstream, while his art himself is boring and ugly.
Anyone has potential and he's in his twenties and claims he's going to art school so he can learn and grow.

As an artist I feel like he wishes he could garnish more criticism because no one actually comments on his body as work, more his deadpan humour.

No. 376137


Say what you will about his art at least it's not pretty girl facing left for the millionth time. I do hope that as he learns, his art has more of a direction and that he grows out of the youtube drama phase that younger people especially, tend to use to gain a following. I think he chose that kind of video content because otherwise, nobody would really pay attention to his art.

I do think though, that he thinks he has some kind of clout for being outspoken. To me he's just kinda boring.

No. 376138

I honestly don't care about his art, because that's not the point, his art is not "ugly" is not your typical anime shit, he is learning and that's fine, he criticize people attitude, not their art to be fair, like holly shitty attitude, tracing and stuff. so tbh, his art is really irrelevant, but his persona is pretty brave to call "popular" artists shitty personality out. idk, this smells like vendetta to me.

No. 376150

If you throw shit within the art community and have your name/persona attached to it, of course your body of work is going to come under scrutiny.

It might not be ugly, but it’s boring. It’s the really bland and personality lacking concept art stylisation that thousands of men within the concept industry all draw. It’s so lacking in personality that if you were to chuck it onto a gaming concept art site you wouldn’t be able to tell whose is whose other than beginner or professional

No. 376169

I agree here. He probably just uses the art in his video as a set dressing because so many art commentators on youtube either dont draw, or draw like shit. I think he partly uses his art as a stamp of authority of some kind so that the general audience thinks that he's a step above. I mean it works, he stands out, and I get the appeal. But that doesn't make the art or him any less bland.

He's just another drama youtuber with art as a costume, at least for right now.. it's nothing to write home about.

No. 376204

I think the reason it's dumb you guys are complaining about his art is that the entire point of his channel is stated to make money on topics that get views.

Personally I don't mind it when people quote-tweet my art because I'm just happy to get some attention and love, but there are times/specific people where you get the vibe they're quote-tweeting so they can get the attention which is kinda… just sad TBH a lot of artists only get a few likes/retweets so to have some of the attention "taken" from you can be disappointing. it's a lot better for the artist to just retweet & reply with affection!

but like i said, in general any type of positive feedback is better than no feedback.

in the case of some japanese/korean/artists who don't speak english well it's also quite stressful to have people quote-tweet your art because people often quote tweet to shame others and maybe you can't tell which is which.

As long as it's just once in a while when someone has a product they genuinely don't enjoy, it doesn't really bug me.

No, but making exaggerated vomiting and hissing noises when you first see the medium as an attempt to be funny does- so is going out of your way to mention how much you don't like it every other sentence, or using a random piece of cardboard for your first attempt and wondering why it doesn't look great, and later having to resort to a default cartoony style to make something that looks "good" because your attempt at realism turned out like shit, and you didn't want to try again.

Holy hell, she was annoying in this video. In the Paletteful Packs unboxing where she got pastels, she didn't even attempt to use them. In this one she started with "maybe I should look up a tutorial" and then didn't follow through with that.

She talks a big game about wanting to learn and always trying to improve but when push comes to shove, she's stuck in a rut like Kasey.

An artist I found on Tumblr posted their progress in the span of a decade, and I thought it was a little lacking for such a long time and it made me question what would even be the general course of improving for an artist? It reminded me of earlier in the threads were anons talked about Danicia Sills lacked of improvement as well as this other artist.

I personally think this artist definitely improved, overtime, but it got me thinking if the several changes in style affected that growth? Because from 2012 and on her art didn’t necessarily improved?

I wholly agree with this. Marketing is a huge part of being a popular artist on Instagram and marketing, unlike what some people think, is an actual science with a lot of studying on markets, audiences, product, plans of action, etc.

I get that artists are creatives and don't like numbers or limiting themselves in their art, but fact of the matter is the best way to grow on social media nowadays is to study these platforms and implement thought out plans based on your findings (which is really not that hard to do lmao)

Yeah, art has both gotten easier and harder in terms of making it.

Earlier this year there were a lot of artist on Twitter complaining about the prices of Cintiq, especially their newer model that was marketed to me more affordable and I wondered why it was ok for artist to make threads about how shitty it was for Apple and Cintiq to put out expensive shit but if someone dare says an artist is overcharging it’s the most disgusting shit ever.

Both are a form of luxurious ous items. If you want that Cintiq, you have to pay the price and same goes for wanting your OC drawn by your favorite artist .

No. 377596

Wanting someone (who may or may not make their living on commissions) to charge less than minimum wage for a luxury item like art is not the same as big companies overcharging for tablets.

No. 377599

While they can both be considered luxury items to an extent, there are key differences;

Cintiqs and Ipads are luxuries in the sense that they’re not a necessity to everyone, but you have to keep in mind that they’re marketed as work tools. They’re also not custom made to order, the parts within don’t at all represent the cost of the product, and it costs them pennies to produce. These things are also made on a mass scale and the workers have salaries. Honestly speaking, the prices are also inflated because they don’t have much competition to force them into consumer friendly prices. Continuously raising prices while the quality of the product doesn’t go up enough to justify it (especially considering these companies hold back on tech purely because they can) is hugely anti-consumer.

Artists more often than not aren’t overpricing their products, most products are custom to order (commissions and such), the artist isn’t able to purchase their stock in bulk as large as large scale companies are able to which significantly brings down cost per piece, artists income is commission based not a salary, handmade items will always have a higher value due to the nature of the product and it’s intimacy, and also there is absolutely no need to own artwork - sure, it will increase the quality of your life (same way something like movies do), but it doesn’t feed/clothe/bathe,shelter you and it isn’t used for work related purposes either

No. 377600

Samefag, but like another anon said, most people will whine about the cost of art if it isn’t the equivalent of loose change

No. 377612

Compound that with the fact that in certain industries it's more or less required to own a cintiq or something similar, and that a lot of art programs are now subscription based, which in and of themselves can get pricey if you have to buy different programs from different developers.

As far as the pricing thing, most prices i've seen aren't exorbitant, and i've actually had to tell other art friends tho raise their prices because they were taking on too many commissions and they were running themselves ragged.

No. 377629

The fact that so many creative field programs that are the industry standard are subscription based makes me livid.

If anyone has an offline computer I recommend installing an old version of whatever programs to do your work in rather than subscribing. Also do more research on free ones, some are very good and do exactly the same things as the pay for programs.

I think people overpay for their programs and devices which leads to a sort of mania where they want to recoup their costs and validate their purchases. Art is tied to our emotions and commodifying it with expensive equipment I think leads to all the soulless "pretty girl" shit we see everywhere now. People are more inclined to do the stuff that gets clicks and sales over pushing their abilities and becoming better artists.

It looks like they hit a wall around 2014-2015 and didn't try and improve since then. They probably are happy with their neopets crossed with adventure time art* and aren't trying to improve

adobe should be left to the dust, tbh. Clip Studio Paint gives vector, illustration, comics and animation all in one for a fixed price and free updates. I use krita too but I've heard it doesn't work well for everyone

Gotta keep in mind though, one of the big things Adobe still has over others is their prestige - they’re so well known in the industry (concept, design, illustration, what have you) that the adobe portfolio site is one where huge amounts of talent scouts/agents go looking

No. 377839

Clip Is great the only thing I don't like is that on iPad is subscription based (but gives 6months trial for free) but is so much superior compared to procreate . The latter is a great tool but I like csp more

No. 377846

It bugs me that ownership of programs is phasing out in favor of subscription models. People experience subscriber burnout a lot faster because companies want a part of your living wage without really having to change anything. I think it's great Adobe isn't the only game in town anymore, especially after all the bullshit they pull. And csp being as generous as they are with sales I feel as though their subscription model for iPad is justified. At least it isn't $50 a month. I feel as though it's just a better value overall. And for folks that do commissions on their iPad, I'm willing to bet it pays itself back. I agree that procreate is an intuitive, powerful tool, but it's no replacement. I don't think it's really supposed to be.

No. 377927

I think adobe isn’t especially unreasonable considering that for decades their software was pirated left and right by hobbyists. It’s the INDUSTRY standard as you mentioned. For someone who makes living out of using cc it’s not too much and they can always write it off their income. $10 for photoshop isn’t outrageous for a hobbyist generating income either. If it is there are alternatives.

If you don’t want to pay for cc you’re not their target.

I mean it's kinda crazy that they charge $21 bucks a month for just photoshop when other programs like CSP cost ~$25 when they're on sale for a license that lasts forever. They're only encouraging piracy with this lol

$21? Last time I check photo bundle was $10 :O!

No. 377952

That’s because they want people to pay for the full suite and not individual programs. College students get adobe suite for $20 or pay $10-$20 for individual program.

Also, some companies purchase the software for the employees. I worked for a business that used illustrator and Indesign and I just used them on their office computers.

The pirating would have barely made a dent in their sales. Here are their current prices, these are individual ones rather than business - plenty of people either freelance or are expected by their employer to also work from home

No. 377978

"Regular $82.99/mo" and only "your first month of adobe stock is free" are they saying at that price adobe stock is only included for one (1!) month and after that it costs extra on top? These prices are outragous, especially for what they are. Who actually pays these prices? Why do they even have customers at this point? People who pay these prices no questions asked are the real problem, letting companies get through with bs like this…

Stock images are incredibly expensive, it makes more sense to use a subscription service instead of paying $300-500 per photo license.

No. 377998

Photoshop was around $500-$600 when it was released on discs and adobe would give you a discount when upgrading to a newer release. I just remember that because a local artist gave me one of her old versions of photoshop to use and she kept her registration info with it.

This is why I'm so glad I bought my license. I got it right at the cusp and decided owning with one large payment would be better than renting. I wish they still had the option. It made sense.

No. 378159


Procreate is great but it’s meant more for painting than comics, so it doesn’t have certain tools like text or shape building. Unlike Adibe though the people running Procreate are working hard on improving it. The last update included clipping masks and quick shapes which are a massive help. If they continue to update the app I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see many people choose it over other options.

I tried to use CPS on the iPad but I found the interface unbearable. Took up wayyy too much screenspace and there were too many options for non-important things.

The only real downside to Procreate/the iPad is your file size. I bought the cheapest model and while I don’t regret it at all, I can only use up to 14 layers on Procreate, which has made quite inventive.

Weirdly I can go up to 40 layers easily on Medibang paint, so I don’t know what that’s all about.

No. 378160


* sage, sorry

No. 378169

Your layer count is greatly dependant on your dpi/canvas size. I have a 2nd gen ipad pro 128gb and I either work on a 300dpi 5000x5000, which gives me a max of 17 layers, or a 300dpi 3000x3000, which gives me 55 layers.

I'm not sure how large you work, but if you get into the habit of cropping your canvas if you end up not utilizing the entire thing, it helps a lot with layer caps.

I also want to add that you can animate on CSP. I don't think we'll be seeing anything like that on something like procreate for a long time, if ever. But Preocreate has come such a long way in just the year I've been using it and is amazing for sketching/painting, esp at it's price point.

No. 378173


I work at roughly 3000 x 3000 and get 18 layers max :/ It’s a nuisance but I have the regular iPad (2018) which costed 340€ so eh. Can’t complain.

Same thing for animation, by the way. Can’t do any because the iPad can’t handle it. I don’t animate so it doesn’t bother me, but yeah, if anyone here is planning on working with big files / lots of layers you should invest in the iPad Pro.

Considering how portable, easy to use and capable these tablets are I honestly think they’re worth the price over a big Cintiq, but that’s just a-me.

I don’t think you need to draw complex pieces to be a ~real artist~ but I find it funny how someone who talks A Lot about still being on the path to find her own way as a an artist only ever does small stuff that doesn’t actually require much thought or growth.

No. 378356


I don't really watch minnie so this isn't about her per se but just in general

i would say that small things don't actually require thought or growth because like you said, you don't need to draw complex pieces. Doing large or complicated pieces that require you to push yourself a lot can be overwhelming at times and freeze someone into inaction because it can feel like it is no longer managable. idk does anyone else get those feelings of trying to do something large scale and being afraid to even put the pencil to paper even though you know you need to improve?

i would count something as progress as long as someone learns something about what they were doing.

I know we have a Baylee thread, but it’s utter shit, and honestly none of the art tubers should’ve gotten one they’re not nearly milky enough to warrant it (I’m surprised no one has to tried to make a Kasey one).

Anyway, the amount she shops is so uncomfortable. I swear she is constantly buying enough things to make haul videos, her voice and expressions are so husk like in this video. I feel like this is something that’s gonna happen to most of the art tubers tbh, they’re gonna get really popular and then start loving all the love for their craft and just become shells of the artists they used to be.
Baylee was never amazing, but her personality and passion were enjoyable and now all she does is shop for supplies that rot away in her room

Why do so many art tubers do hauls so frequently? I get that it’s exciting to buy things and that the dopamine rush is addictive, but with how frequent they seem to be with copious amounts of artist quality brands, which are by no means cheap, it seems like some other aspect of their life must be taking a hit

Nitpick but will she ever stop using teal in all her pieces, she even said in this video that she was gonna get multiple different types because it’s a colour she uses a lot

Sage for the sperging, but I don't understand why she would waste her money on the radiant paints. They're all tints, that means you could mix the colors easily yourself, or get an approximation.

The only one that seems remotely useful to me is the radiant white.

And even if you do find a use for them, which seems to be mostly for accent colors, you know that Baylee is going to end up using them straight out of the tube and then complain when they're extremely intense, especially compared to the other paints she has.

No. 378571

I can see why people buy convenience paints like that, helps also avoid running out of the colour while working on multiple projects, but they’re by no means useful to a beginner - she should be learning how to mix all the colours, but I really don’t see her doing anything with all these paints other than displaying them

I have no idea, her stylistic choices are not a match for oils. She should just stick with copics, or better yet make use of all the watercolours and gouache she’s hoarding which would be a good match for her artwork

This style reminds me so much of the old art noveau stuff with women just lounging decoratively on armchairs all the time. it’s kinda sad that in this day & age of feminism so many artists works depict these dainty little women as beautiful ornamented objects. The displacement of small creatures into spaces they don’t belong eg. the fish in the backpack just makes me think these female artists enjoy representing themselves as these vulnerable little creatures.. like, it’s cute but is that honestly all you want your art to say about beauty and nature sand the female firm? That it’s cute and small and don’t you just wanna cuddle it?

No. 378666

Thought her content would be interesting and (expecting too much) with a little more technical information (think of Teoh To Chie and Nattosoup's kind of technical information but a little less)
It's just disappointing. Her audience is clearly tailored for children (no not even teenagers, it's too dumb) as she talks putting on a voice of child entertainers you would find in parties. She also always puts on the "like challenge" as in "hit that like button with your elbow or key smash" shit like that.
Haven't watched the entire video because I gave up halfway but she puts around EIGHT ADS in a ELEVEN MINUTE VIDEO. She's currently living in the US (Florida I guess since she claims she lives near a Disneyland?) and still can't explain the translation of "chisel nib" even tho she just said the translation of it a few seconds before showing the words in English.

Why is art style all really young artists care about? Like, I get it, you want to have your own voice and be recognisable, but I don’t understand why they’re so hyper focused on forcing it and then sticking to it, rather than just letting it happen organically and experiment whenever the urge strikes.

I’m not much older than a lot of these people, but I never had this issue - I’m perfectly happy to just try out anything that catches my fancy, so I can’t at all wrap my head around why so many young artists obsess over finding their own style and then refuse to budge once they have something even remotely recognisable.

melty finger means when you have no lines between the fingers so it looks like they're melted or forming one big finger/paw thing.

I don't think her art panders to the tumblr sjw audience. Even being mediocre, it's not the same grade of ugly that panders to tumblr. She hasn't blackwashed any characters with offical art that i know of, and in the case of this video the vitiligo thing makes sense because of the context.

I skipped to the part where she talked about the Earth design and she said that vitiligo seems like an "awesome interesting skin condition"….. no please don't do that vitiligo is an illness for god's sake. It's one thing representation to show up that people affected by it aren't the same as the bibilical leprosy patients where they needed to be quarentined, but to romanticize it….

No. 379081

Because popular artists talk about/promote it.

Case and point; the 'draw this in your style' meme. a pefect example of the emphasis on artistic signature over core fundementals of art. it is a social media trend, and young artists get most of their inspiration and motivation from social media, even more so with people that have found fame and success on those platforms. they see the same image hundreds of times, but each is slightly different because of the style that a certain artist holds. to a new artist, or one not as well versed as other artists, they see that style makes each artist unique, and work to imitate the success they see, but no one wants to be accused of copying. so, instead, the ever growing search for style continues, but with the end goal of being seen as original, not enjoyable (laverndertowne is the perfect example here, i mean for christ sake, her art is so overly stylized that it is more toddler heatwave vomit than art)

the sooner these kids learn that nothing is original, the better off they are, and the search for the style will end. you need to learn the rules of art before you break them, best advice i ever got from a professor. unfortunately, most kids in search of their own style are skipping that step, and rarely any of the artubers actually talk about this cause 'who the fuck will click on a video talking about art fundementals when i can do another unboxing or prompt list or art supply haul!'

Idk. I've balked at prices for art supplies, but honestly i'd never really consider anything 'luxury'. Usually if something's pricey i've found it's because the materials used to make it were expensive (cadmium/cobalt-based paints, hand made paper, etc) or they're archival. I get trying out new inexpensive materials is great for the audience, but idk, at least once in a while use the decent stuff?

Also way to thin the fuck out of that gouache and basically turn it into watercolor.

I’ve found that using more expensive and better quality supplies tends to alienate a lot of the more popular youtubers audiences since their viewers are so young and tend to take things way too personally, if you look at older artists or more cinematic channels (think furrylittlepeach or Mateusz Urbanowicz) they use artist quality supplies and don’t shy away from discussing their quality, but these channels have older viewers who also don’t tend to be beginners so I think the creators have a bit more leg room with not having to be hyper aware of how something mundane may offend their audience

Plenty of popular art tubers will get shit flung at them by their audience if they dare speak against Crayola because ‘that’s all I can afford and it’s really good!!!’
Kids can act like apes tbh

Lmao, if the likes of Strathmore are bougie then I’m genuinely interested in what in her opinion is non-bougie paper. Cause you’d think it’d be midrange paper with friendly prices for people in the US (like Rae) but I guess not

They look ok to me, just chipped. Typical for someone who does a lot with their hands.

I knew Emily shot up heroin but apparently, she was doing coke too. Going off of her other storytimes, it seems like she had a somewhat typical upbringing. Wonder what happened in her early adulthood to make her turn to hard drugs. I bet that forced funny mom personality is to hide how strung out she really is.

Are people really THAT focused on the hands? Personally, I think this is a little far for a nick-pick, especially if the hands belong to an artist who is working ON the piece during the video. Now, I understand if it’s Holly levels of unsanitary, but this??

Yeah holly's hands were the grodiest. I remember she briefly tried to cover up her nails with cheap press-ons that looked awful and didn't fit her nail shape, probably to avoid having to properly clean her hands and getting comments on how gross it was.
