I noticed that she took down/privated the Calarts video? Does anybody know why?

No. 286962

Her "cure" to same face syndrome is to draw in a generic comic book style, not a generic anime style. This girl still looks boring and bland, the only thing that's different is that she's not drawn in an ~*animu*~ style.

Oh my god finally, I called that she would go full /snow/ and there she is. Some people might argue there's no milk but she's getting milkier than some threads we have here with how she's (not) handling critique, shit talks other artists while being mediocre herself, constantly shits on the audience that's bringing her the bucks in her blogs, etc. The other thread in /ot/ was all discussion about her anyways.

Uploading her latest bs.

She probably got too much hate, she always whined about not wanting to look at the comments in that video because it was the one with the most heated comment section. That video is how I discovered her myself btw, it's infamous.

This is goddamn hideous. Those speech bubbles hurt my soul, I guess she doesn't know that you're supposed to do the text first and make the fucking bubble around it. Also that font is awful, if she wants to make the text so flowing she should at least write it by hand. God. Her use of black and gray is pretty good tho, but that is the only positive thing about this. I bet she uses arrows to point the reader to the next panel or some shit.

No. 287102

I think this is almost just as bad as it's just still images of 2 second sketches and sometimes just a white screen, but the end sequence is by far superior to Heather's. At least it tried to create some sort of an atmosphere.

No. 287108

It's by no means a great animatic, its pretty sparing as you've pointed out. Its not that shitty melting style tho fml.

Heathers the movie had great ideas but boy is it confusing/lacking at times. The climax of it feels so half assed, funny but half assed. The musical does so much better with it and building atmosphere and stakes to what they do (also J.D.'s insanity has more of a build up?).
What gets me is tumblr LOVES this musical, even though it's an edgefest and uses vocab they fucking hate, musicals always do seem to get a free pass.

which is extra funny esp when you consider that the authors note in the script for heathers doubles down on the "focus on the emotions, not the extra details" thing and REALLY drills it home.

i'm probably going to be in the minority here, but I like Holly's personality (for the most part). I listen to her videos as background noise when I'm drawing. I fucking HATE her art though, it's so ugly and empty, and that Dead Girl Walking reprise animatic made it click in my head why I never liked her art. i appreciate her for being no bullshit but fucking jesus christ, if you're doing an art channel where you basically talk down to people you need to have good art in the first place ffs

No. 287412

What point is there to her no-bs attitude when she had EXTREMELY thin skin? It's like one of those playground bullies that would push everyone off the swings but would burst into tears the second someone called them a dummy.

I think she mentioned in a video somewhere that her aunt was her mom because her real mom was arrested and her aunt raised her or something? Does anyone know anything about that? I'll try and find the video when I get my laptop.

Also can someone please tell me how it's physically possible to not improve after 2 years of practice? I mean, you've GOT to get better SOMEHOW, right? Right?!

No. 287442


I'm wondering the same thing too. If she was serious about being an artist for a living, she would have shown some improvement in two years. It seems like she draws a lot but she's only drawing what she's comfortable with and not pushing herself to do any better. :/

i agree, shes a whiny little bitch and thats why i dont bother looking at her twitter or anything, i just watch her videos and try to ignore what shes really like.

there's this artist on tumblr who's pretty well known in the south park fandom who has similar stunted development with her art (the art styles arent alike but theyre equally mediocre in my opinion), however she doesnt throw a hissy fit like holly does whenever someone gives her actual criticism. so it's not just holly, but… it's weird how some people don't improve, sometimes my art improves after as little as a day ?? and i know holly draws all the fucking time so how after all of that practise could she be so fucking stuck ????

No. 287498

You'd be surprised Anon, I once followed an artist in like 2007 for their art style, they went on hiatus for a while, and resurfaced in 2016 drawing exactly how they did almost 10 years ago. It's baffling but some people just plateau off in their art if they don't branch out or try to improve enough

No. 287499

>Add-on to this.
I have a friend who sketches frequently and I've known her since 2008?

To this day her art style is exactly the same as it was back in 2008, same wonky anatomy and weird stiffness. Which is weird because my art has improved leaps and bounds since then because I can compare where I'm at now with then (because I drew our characters together back then) and I think it's a mix of lack of effort, reusing the same techniques (even if they're bad), stubborness, and not taking any foundational classes (i.e. life drawing etc.)

No. 287504

I've been watching her vlogs b/c I like listening to her voice and she's kind of funny. But it's always a little jarring when she turns the camera towards her face.

She only recently admitted she has a problem with making the arms to short on her characters after someone brought it up on her insta. It was kind of crazy to hear about considering she's gotten so butthurt over over simple critiques like that in the past. I think she's only willing to admit to/work on one art problem at a time. Which makes her improvment progress slower.

No. 287507

No. 287825


True, but I kind of feel that's like comparing apples and oranges? Sure this thread points out how bad Holly's comic/cartoon style is despite art school etc, but in the end she is drawing cartoons and fan art.

Istebrak makes technical digital paintings and critiques other people's attempts at the same thing. Great to watch if you want to learn realism and rendering, but just really boring if you're into cartoons.

No. 287873

Istebrak actually has some helpful line art and character design critiques. Also, I used to think realism was boring and didn't apply to me because I'm into comics…but damn I really didn't know two shits about values, perspective, of anatomy. Moving away from comic tutorials can be helpful because I can't really think of any that actually hammer the fundamentals. Istebrak made me realize that I was a tard for not doing my value studies because they were "Too boring."

Unless I'm mistaken? Are there cartoonists I should be following? I'm honestly interested in listening to artist across mediums.

No. 287892

I'm a cartoon artist as well, and i do think looking at realism and those kind of tutorials are really helpful. You need a good solid ground in realism to make good cartoon designs. You kinda just need to know what to take with a grain of salt for whatever style your going for.

No. 288132

(person from b4 who said they liked holly's personality) I've seen some of Istebrak's videos and she's not really my thing, I am interested in technical stuff but her videos tend to be too long and spacey for my taste if that makes sense. Anyone got any recommendations for people who make content similar to Holly's ? if that's okay to ask. newfag here lol

No. 288140

Like similar how so? Like blunt but shorter videos and least spacey? I feel like it's hard to find someone good at art, is blunt, and has charisma.

I used to videos like Holly's but I felt cheap and dirty doing them. I wonder if other artists feel that way? I also sanitized my opinions on other artists as not to make enemies in the industry.

No. 288154

Yeah I meant shorter (or at least less livestream-y) videos with similar personality, granted you're right, it is difficult to find people to fill that. The majority of artists on YT are just annoying.

No. 288245


She says she's trying to lose weight. Most of her blogs show her diets pretty shit tho (nachos/soda/coffee/ravioli etc. but she showed one salad with lots of dried fruit on top?) Her college is online and her job for now is yt, makes it hard to imagine she moves around enough to compensate.

It's pretty hard for artists to lose weight but I don't even know if it'd help that much. Does losing weight make people's face less lumpy?

No. 288255


I haven't been watching him for too long but he's kind of like a breath of fresh air. Obviously into anime, but has a handle on the fundamentals like anatomy and perspective. Tons of content but his videos are long like istebrak's, sorry. It's easier to skip around his videos and still keep track of what he's getting at.

Its funny that Holly mentioned her style was exactly like Naruto b/c she was rlly into that show. Like she said she mastered it and everything. Last time I checked Naruto didn't have jacked up anatomy.

Back to her art style, she has less experience (1-2 yrs) w/ digital art so that explains why it always has that messy painterly no lineart look accept without actual rendering. When I first started digital my work had the same finish. But while I actually saw the muddiness as a serious gross flaw, she sees it as a legitimate style.

Unfortunately, you don't need to even be a good artist to be an art teacher. All you need is that teaching degree. However, she also says she would want to teach at an art school. Maybe she means one of those art high schools like the one she went to, but it's laughable to consider if she was talking about being a professor.

No. 288816


Her students would likely have better art too and would wonder why in the world were they being taught by this chick. Holly says that her art teacher in high school couldn't draw that well either, so I guess it is a little more realistic for her after all.

If she's so bored w/ it why doesn't she make it more interesting? I've been reading her comic and its pretty fucking boring. Two gay boys in a religious cult. They're in love and she expects that to tantalize you considering they're in a religious setting where gay stuff is a no-no. Thing is, there's not even anything that suggests anyone is going to know about the relationship. No tension of them possibly getting caught, so what's the point of this setup? wtf

She said she wanted to try to get into storyboarding now? which is why she made the Heathers thing.
Holly shits on many artists behind their back or in her streams, so it's hard to find, but then tries to act nicer and backpedal in front of them. She'd get a bunch of shit from fans of the other artists, specially since they cross over channels sometimes.

Her streams are something else, constant burping, slurping saliva, and when her brother interrupts the stream it gets really fucked up. One time she was arguing with him while her friends were on skype shitting on him too and the entire audience didn't know what the fuck to do with themselves. It's really uncomfortable, starts around the 1:37 mark and at 1:50 but it kept going for the whole stream everytime he'd show up.

It's kind of unprofessional to whine about this in her videos, but getting bored and angry and frustrated with your projects is the unfortunate truth of being a professional comic artist, even if you are working on the most amazingly interesting thing ever, so I would cut her some slack here.

I don't get why she hates her comic so much. I've been working on a comic I don't really care about for about 6 years now. Like, it took me 4 years to even start seeing an audience.

Meanwhile she's been working on this thing 2 years? and wants to give up? Does she realize you can work on multiple comics? I've got three on the go right now and I work full time. Fuck off.

Oh godly anon, how do you even manage all three at once? How did you even start? I'm asking because I'm really interested in starting a comic on my own, so…
(And I see people like Holly and I think to myself, if this bitch got 100k subs on youtube, maybe I can gain an audience too.)

She sounds like a miserable bitch. You're trying to stream and seem somewhat credible, yet you're going to bitch at your viewers and then make everyone uncomfortable with your hatred for your brother?

No. 289266

Oh god, I was so uncomfortable when she started muttering to herself. So unprofessional.

And I don't know, anon, I just really love art!

If it made me as miserable as Holly I probably would have quit after a month. I realized early on into my first comic that I had my head up my ass and people didn't owe me shit.

I give myself a pretty rigid schedule and do huge buffers. Honestly, I'm nothing special. I work a graphic design job so I'm not exactly drained after a day of work. I sort of just add a new project anytime I'm not feeling challenged.

Also to not derail, have another triggering video of Holly using vinyl on her silk screens because she can't understand emulsion. UGH. Who lets you have nice things?

I'm willing to believe that, it reminded me of the edgy kids in my middle school classes who would sit alone, swear to themselves, and then look around to make sure people were watching them. Also it made me feel bad for the poor kid when she called him "worthless". Does anyone know how old her brother is?

No. 289465

I know! I felt so bad for her brother too. I understand not everyone is best friends with their siblings, but swearing at them, calling them worthless, and mocking them with your internet friends (who don't even know him!) is fucking awful.

Anyway, I'm not certain, but I assume her brother is around 18-20. In her stream, she mentioned that all he does is smoke weed, so he's probably in his teens at least. She also complained about him being in the house and how he should move out already, which is fucking rich coming from her.

Her comic art and anatomy is horrid, especially with her ego/attitude. Some of the things in her store aren't too bad, but when it comes to her comics is any quality goes down somehow? Also she doesn't clean her gross nails for the product pictures (pic related).

She treats her friend(s) and viewers/ potential customers like garbage and she has the gall to spew about how to get people to buy your things? Wow.

No. 289599

Not same anon but if you ever watch her sketch you can see that she doesn't plan or map anything out. All her characters end op looking off model and wonky. Like if you look at them from panel to panel they do not look they same.

She's curbs this a bit by having "a style" meaning she's made up a bunch of symbols that read as different things. It's why she only has a handful of expressions and poses. Just look at her pose book. She obsessed with making symbols and looking at models as a way to cheat at art and not have an actual understanding of the underlying structure as a model.

Depth, I'm not sure. It could be her flat and lazy perspective work of her lazy attempts with values, colour, and lighting. Anything she does is a shortcut. Just look at her how to draws, it's all just "cheats".

In addition she's awful at design work. I don't at least a dozen designs of something before actually putting it in an illustration let alone a comic book. She HATES planning and calls people who edit scripts "childish."

It's not dumb, anon. Maybe like this (example: comics)?


No. 289675

Same anon here.
From the comic pages posted here, the line weight and variation is mostly uniform. Typically, linework in the foreground should be thicker than in the background. Not to mention that she is inconsistent with perspective like in the last panel >>287014, where the floorboards should be receding into a single vanishing point.

You can all tell by the bad anatomy and the melting faces that there is no sense of structure. For example, look at the right arm on this character >>286985. The fingers shouldn't be wrapping around the pole like that. Also the figures are very stiff, just not enough exaggeration and expression for cartoons.
She does a lot of symbol drawing like one of the previous anon said. The eyes and mouths are like stickers.

Her designs are all the same, same kind of body, same hands, same faces, like a lesser johannathemad. Simply put, everything lacks variation and experimentation.

She spends a lot of time drawing, but creating art requires a lot of planning and thinking, I'd say like at least 60% research and idea development. She doesn't do that. Time and effort mean nothing, only the results. Unfortunately like many artists, she skipped a bunch of steps when she should be going back and learning fundamental skills. She's not advanced enough to be attempting the things she's doing because she's just misleading beginning artists with her rants and 'tips'.

In the Calarts video, she claims that she was accepted but chose not to go. Not sure if anyone can back up that claim?

I used to hang around artist circles for years and I saw a lot of different artist types and went through plenty of phases myself, but ultimately chose a different career path, partly because of the awful people like Holly in the artist scene. To me Holly is one of those artist types that has a huge superiority complex and absolutely hates being challenged, but at the same time she acknowledges that she's not reaching the bar even high enough to be considered mediocre. Which is why she is so defensive about criticism and facing her flaws. She reacts so aggressively to thumbnailing and other means of editing/planning because it would make her think about all the things she's doing wrong and she clearly doesn't want that, even if it would mean improving. To her, improving seems to be scary for the reason I stated, it would make her face her flaws.

She also thrives on putting other people and ideals down because to her, offensive is the best defense. If she's already attacking something she (in her mind at least) puts herself in the position of an authority figure. I'm guessing all the bullshit about not being able to work because "it's taking away from her art, boo" is related to her superiority complex, she thinks she's entitled to live out her non-profit comic dreams and not sink to the level of people working part-time at fast food chains and grocery stores.

Ergo, I think it's extremely important to pull bitches like this off their high horse because as you've noticed her followers are very young and impressionable. If they'll assume this toxic mindset they'll end up like her and spread it even further.

>That shocking realization that no, that black haired chick is actually a dude and you think you're going blind.
Yyyeaaahh, I think being a blatant trap fetishist kind of disregards her rants about writing believable gay characters.

And once again the characters look extremely wonky and at the same time they share an almost identical face. And once again the hands look like claws. She repeats the same mistakes over and over again. And holy shit I thought anons were exaggerating her nails but fuck that's gross.

Symbol drawing works when you're figuring out measurements and practicing poses but Holly's characters look like she literally just inked over the symbols without giving them depth or curves. I'm seconding the anon who said she needs to do more life drawing because she seems to have zero sense of composition. The reason her poses look so awkward and stiff is because no normal people move like clothing store mannequins. It's not enough to know basic anatomy, you have to have some sort of sense about real-life limb/body movement. That Heathers animatic she made pretty much revealed how she has no idea how people move.

And I guess the lack of experimentation and variation comes from the superiority complex I talked about earlier. She's dug herself a nice little hole to stay in and she's not coming out.

Rich b/c in one of her videos she rants about her old art school for giving more scholarships/opportunities to animation students than illustrators and has the gall to say animation is easy when she's only managed to shit out a couple gross gifs and one animatic.

No. 289743

You'd think she's make some effort for the cover but the title isn't even centered and there's 3 hands showing for 2 characters and they look exactly the same.

There's simply no weight to them, it doesn't even look like they're interacting together. I'm guessing they're lovers but the shorter one seems to be pushing the other's hand away gently.

It's crazy how little effort she puts into her stuff. She could ask two people to hold a pose to at least have a reference, how hard is that?

What bothers me the most is that she wants to rush Purgatory only because she likes her new Paranormal Plague OCs better, even if the story is way less developed. It's like she made Purgatory when she was in this strong fujoshi kick and now she's over it and keeps bitching about it because she wants to draw her new so manly OC. Not shitting, Paranormal Plague has three main characters but she keeps obsessing and developing pretty much only the guy and she even made a self insert marysue to be his girlfriend. And this is what she wants to drop Purgatory for.

>"Cell-shading is the laziest shit ever"

>Cuts corners mid way in her own comic

Well she hasn't started it yet but she has explained in a video the concept being a group of college students who investigate mysterious activities/fight crime in a city where some people randomly have the ability to shape shift into animals b/c of a 'plague' hence the name 'paranormal plague'

Actually sounds kind of cool, if only she had the technical ability to illustrate it well and wasn't a obnoxious person

Honestly, yes. This audience is one of the easiest to pander to. Though, if you really want to make bank and sell lots, pander to furry fandom. Fujoshit will get you a bunch of preteen girls with no money. You'd be surprised how many rich furries there are willing to spend ludicrous amounts (industry rates) on their fursonas. Holly isn't even selling out in the right way. Yeesh learn to shill better.

In other words, Fujos beg for discounts while furries shower you with tips.

(Also if you actually draw adult gay men instead of lady boys you can get a chunk more change from a smaller but richer audience).

Oh lol, I'm the Huion anon you're replying to! We're in opposite situations. I was looking to get a Cintiq (specifically a 13HD!) because while I love sketching and painting on my Huion, doing clean lineart feels really unintuitive on a non-display tablet. If the parallax is that bad, I think I'll have to wait for the newer gen of Cintiqs to get devalued, then.

Apparently there's a newer model of the H610, fyi to you two:

I decided to try and read her comic and the first thing that I notice about it is that it sounds like it's been drawn first and written later. Like she's drawn the speech bubbles and is just trying to fill them without even thinking about it.

>three panels for two lines of dialogue
>subject isn't even actually doing anything warranting three panels

She really needs a beta reader or something for the dialogue, though. Maybe it's the pacing or something but everything feels disjointed. Comics is probably one of the hardest mediums, but as you said, it just feels like she started drawing with no foresight regarding writing, pacing, or storytelling.

Her writing videos are a gold mine of bad advice (then again which one of her videos isn't?).

Purgatory looks like a lot of comics I like, but only at a glance. The edgy black and white gay comic about occult shit. I find they always get confusing and their creators tend to get their head up their ass with symbolism and such. I know one creator that confused their audience so much at the end of their comic they had to summarize the whole plot to make it comprehensible.

I don't understand why Holly acts the way she does. For the quality she produces she makes good money and has a stable fan base.
I mean, I really wish I could produce the low quality she does and not disappoint my own followers. She should be really happy.

Unless she's aware she's total shit, and that is why she has this need to bash every artist that's better than her. It's like she can't relate to her fellow peers.

If she does read this thread my advice for her struggles with digital is keep adjusting that pen pressure and clipping layers and the paint bucket tool can help color a whole comic page in no time.

I honestly don't know how she struggled so bad with coloring with her program and blamed her followers for her incompetence.

At least I am genuinely curious how much time artist spent on a piece. I think it's interesting because some artist can do very detailed work in just couple hours. Some spend even weeks doing a piece, when for someone else that's unheard of. More hours doesn't mean more quality, she's right about hat, but why be asshole "stop saying shit like this" just because you're not interested. Others can be. Oh but others are irrelevant for her, sorry I forgot.

Did she ever hear back from any of the publishers? Also, kek at the double page spread she's so proud of at 14.25, you could never print this because the dude is right in the middle.

It means shes very heavy handed when she draws. While shes sketching you hear how awful and loud the led is when it hits the paper and while it can be a number of things, you also see how dark her pencil lines are and no matter what type of led you use, if theyre that dark while sketching from start to finish, its ultimately from being heavy handed, this also means you damage paper (but tbh thats just nit picky bullshit and just hurts her when shes trying to erase shit and/or scan later)
its just very juvenile and means she also has a hard grip on her mechanical pencil which hurts your wrist / strains fingers etc which again isnt good.
Basically its just amazing that even her sketching is sub par, horrific and excuted in the dumbest and most childish of ways.

She's young so I don't think she knows much about comics. If she finds this thread I suggest she doesn't cheap out with her paper. Thick, multi media paper with a smooth texture and literally says "erases easily" should solve her erasing issues.

Also she can draw her comic in a blue pencil first and do the final lines with a dark pencil. A blue pencil (Light blues) won't show well when scanning and whatever does show can be cleaned up digitally for a completely smooth look.

You're right, this is worse! Is she actually filling in the black with more pencil??? And then she complains constantly about how long it takes to finish a page when she's doing something so unnecessary! Most artists mark black areas with "x".

Also, I don't know about you guys but her comment on this person's post irritated me.

No. 293318

She is so dumb. She has said that the reason why she does the blacks on the comic and doesn't just mark the areas with X is because she might sell the original ones in the future. That is so stupid because she is wasting so much her own time when she could just do it digitally and when the time comes to possibly sell the pages, she could fill the blacks traditionally and nobody couldn't tell the difference.
I feel like she just wants to do more unnecessary work just to say and "proof" how hard she works.

No. 293320

It's just unnecessary and a waste of pencil lead

No. 293333

this is absolutely inexcusable. Holly is the single worst "professional" artist I've ever seen. Her art is terrible, her personality is terrible. Nothing about her as an artist or a person is redeemable. It's honestly taken all the restraint I have not to actively antagonize her online.

I really hope this girl gets her wake up call. I hope she realizes her own hypocrisy and her shortcomings and either shuts up and works harder or just gives up all together. The way things are now, if she refuses to improve and just continues drawing terrible, bland comics and shitting on her fans and other artists, she's going to go nowhere in art or life.

I hope she applies for all sorts of professional positions at well-known companies and is rejected from every single one.

Holly is the most mediocre artist on the internet and does not have nearly enough skill to talk big game like she does. There are dozens of competent, friendly, and consistently professional comic artists I associate with on a daily basis who don't have even half the fanbase she does and deserve it a thousand times more than she does.

Yeah something like that, she uploaded an update and it turns out she deleted them because she wasn't feeling sure about her art.

No. 294948

She didn't. Unfortunately she deleted the video, but she apparently sent in a sketch book and it was rejected. The response she made about it was basically, "CalArts is so stupid, my sketchbook is obviously the best and they rejected me because they didn't understand my vision and they have no idea how to judge a sketch book" or some shit. The comment section to that video was amazing because everyone called her out for her bullshit and some said that she deserved to get rejected.

I knew I should of saved that video!

No. 294963


Okay, NOT defending Holly but
>Unfortunately she deleted the video, but she apparently sent in a sketch book and it was rejected.

I'm pretty darn sure she said in that video that she DID get accepted into calarts, but opted not to attend b/c money. And she talked about all these other rejected sketchbook carat submissions being so good but didn't get in b/c calarts has very strict 'dumb' regulations.

Her rant was about how calart's selection process is dumb b/c sketchbooks r very personal and junk. The reason why ppl got mad about it is b/c if your applying to a prestigious art school you shouldn't complain about their requirements. That's like a person complaining a job didn't hire them b/c the place didn't like their portfolio.

>the response she made about it was basically, "CalArts is so stupid, my sketchbook is obviously the best

She said the a lot of the rejected sketchbooks were works of art and amazing, she doesn't say hers are the best. Highly suspect why Holly ranted about it after apparently getting accepted tho. Like she cares about all those other ppl who didn't get in.

But yeah, we only have Holly's word she got accepted

No. 294983

I dunno, man. I was exaggerating my last post a bit (I've also been drinking), hell maybe I was drinking when I watched her CalArts video too or maybe I just got so triggered I couldn't pay attention.

I understand anon, I just try not to spread misinformation when I can help it cuz i like fact not fiction

I remember reading through the comments and there was a lot of ppl accusing her of not actually getting in as her motivation for the rant

So I bet the comment ur referring to either
1) assumed holly bluffed about getting accepted and provided criticism on the holly's sketchbook (In the rant video she was flipping through her sketchbooks)

2) or provided more analysis on why those other sketchbooks from rejected artists didn't make it (i.e. they didn't make sure to fit the criteria enough/ not enough life drawings etcetera)

Its not a rejection rant if in the video she says she got accepted

Not saying its true but the video's intent was rant not rejection rant, which is important for this threads narrative

No. 295650

Why is everyone so sure she got accepted? I don't think she'd make a long, ranting video and delete it out of shame if that was the case. Sounds like she got rejected and lied about it to save face in the video (but, given who she is, couldn't contain her salt to make her lie sound believable).

I mean, why would anyone apply to CalArts if they didn't have the money/financial aid/scholarships in the first place? They wouldn't. It's incredibly competitive, and graduating from there will waltz you through the door of the animation industry. She's definitely lying.

This image sums up my thoughts about it. I get that you're trying to say "she said she got accepted", but we're not arguing that point. We're talking about how it seems like she was lying about it. It was definitely a rejection rant.

No. 295656


Yeah, I agree she was rejected. Not only her art is not CalArts material AT ALL (They are looking for people that really understand anatomy and form, not people that just pretend to do), but

I was the anon in the /ot/ thread who posted the video of her rejection rant, but I'm starting to think there were a couple videos about this topic.

No. 295724

This guy's work is pretty mediocre and not very impressive or unique but it's a hell of a lot better than Holly's. Her admission would probably require her parents to buy an airport for the university so I very much doubt she ever got in and "dropped because of money". She could be either straight out lying or alternatively twisting the truth, but I seriously don't believe her. Who would make a salty rejection video if she was accepted? I'm betting that Holly probably wants to try again but fears badmouthing the school on Youtube would hurt her reputation so she removed the video just in case.

No. 295781

I think another part of this guy's problem is that he isn't showing his thought process on the page. Mediocre is fine if you can show that you think.

Pro tip for anyone trying to get in, show that you have a thought process. I mean, This guy has a lot of studies and character designs but neither are related to one another. Start with studies and then push them into characters, that'll show what they want to see. Just look at all his animal studies and then notice that he doesn't do anything with them. Nothing in his sketchbook really shows a learning process.

This makes me just…there is no way Holly got in with her inability to plan and develop.

This sounds like an awful idea. Holly had no qualms about name-dropping that other significantly smaller youtuber in one of her recent vids and subsequently having said smaller youtuber receive tons of hate (for something that was true; she said Holly was always fucking negative). I have no doubts she would her video rants would hint about going on here and then she would whine about how we all hate her for reasons. Then she would casually drop the name of the entire site at some point to her curious viewers and we'd get a massive wave of her dumbass underage fanbase that we don't need.

No. 297055


ehh, the most I've seen ppl do is post the bad drawing and redraw over top the corrections w/ red pen

like, ppl will definitely shit on you if your redraw is just a classic shota anime boy

i'm redlining and then redrawing my corrections to make it clearer what i mean. i have a sort of similar style to hers so i think its reasonable, i dont think mine is as shit though lol.

No. 297061

we do have people who do amazing art (see the momo thread and all of its hilarious cover art) but tbh if your drawing isnt super illustrative of something wrong with the original that wouldn't otherwise be so noticeable or isn't a funny parody, you're probably going to get shit on even if it's not terrible.

presentation is a lot of it - slapping a big ass signature on it or getting happy with the namefagging will get you hated on if not shipped out to pasture entirely.

imo tho it's not worth doing redraws, just redlines. all a redraw says to most people is "look at me and how much better i am" which def crosses into what >>297055 says

No. 297062

oh i get it lol. does seem kind of attention whorey. ill just redline then, thank you :3

Does this bitch grind her own pigments? It's not like her own work is executed properly, low effort or not. I never click on her videos because just the descriptions and that parody are already off-putting enough, but does she ever have something nice to say about other artists? I genuinely don't understand why she's got such an inflated ego, even with a small following. Is this really all she aspires to be? It's fucking sad.

No. 297120

Good job with the red-line anon. My biggest piece of advice would be to try to keep the line of action next time (and maybe even push it a bit) so your final result doesn't end up looking so stiff/flat.

As for the rest of the chat, I'm almost positive that Holly said she got accepted into CalArts in her CalArts rant because that was the main reason I started following her ages ago. I really wish I saved that video or something now.

No. 297133

why can't she just leave hamilton alone? she draws them so fucking ugly i already want to die. that heathers animatic was bad enough and it was barely even moving

that's very helpful, thank you! i should use lines of action more often. thanks for the advice :>

I never even knew about this artist until this thread popped up since I don't dabble too much in the youtube side of the art community but wow she's lazy. There's so many gaps, colors going outside the lines, wonky anatomy. The fucking left bat wing has 2 fingers while the right has 3?

anyone else physically feel their sexual organs curling up and retracting anytime she expresses some kind of excitement? on one of her recent videos she showed some of her screen where she was looking at killing stalking, and she squealed and rubbed the screen with her greasy little paws.. it was similar to the gross excited voice she used when talking about the molestation in her comic. why does holly have so many paraphilias? it's so clear that so much of her art is sexually driven, if not driven by the desire for fame and money.

couldn't be fuked to rlly try w/ the wings either but its supposed to be an enamel pin right? Just make it symmetrical! Copy and Paste!!

awh its cute in your style~! like the foot

Holly said this pin design was meant to be like a school play so that explains why she made the foot so bent (too bent, ouch) its cause he's supposed to be suspended by wires/rope

but since holly takes solstice in her style being unique and "totally not tumblr-y/animu" we wanted to see if its possible to improve her style as it is

she'd be better off drawing anime, because most anime has good proportions/ anatomy / gesture – which is all the stuff that makes her stuff wonky today

this one is hands down the best out of all the edits, if solely for thatyou made the leg and foot look right

of course if i had to draw it from scratch I'd make a new figure and push the pose more, looking at the ad Holly made for these I guess she meant for Damien (the weird roach hair boy) to seem uninterested/ less eager to act in a school play compared to simon (weird glasses boy) whose PUSHING it

It was just hard to tell the expression she was going for

Shit this looks great. I love how you translated his weird yugioh hairstyle into something actually plausible.

You got a cute style too, I like how you did the face and wings in particular.

way more detail/effort than Holly's 'style' would ever allow

We could change everything to the point it wouldn't look anything like the original, but my point was to see her design just with more advanced anatomy since it seems to be the biggest problem people have with her drawings. That didn't solve that problem through, it still looks weird

I'm done with correcting this since it's not really worth any more time, but I kind of thought this torso is so short because he's bent as we can see bottom of his foot? I probably give Holly too much credit

These facial expressions are just so off and random it's really hard to read what they're trying to convey

No. 297751

This one isn't even bad aside from that fucking chin. How can she look at that with a straight face?

No. 297806

Oops, y'all are right.

She's so close to having this look right, but on top of the chin, parts of the face are misaligned in perspective. The brows/eyes are from above, the nose is too abstracted to tell, and the mouth seems to be from below (I don't really see the lips protruding from the face in anime or stylized work except from that angle).

If Holly ever stumbles upon this thread, I hope you don't take these redlines/crits as a personal attack. Use them to improve. You have all the resources (literally, you've got a fucking Cintiq) at your disposal, and these crits should help you understand more appealing stylization and better fundamental work.

What a cute puppy. Improves the design, too.

No. 297809


Its alright, your redline & synopsis is actually informative and not fan art-y
I was the anon who painted over it, not the way to go but it only took me a six minutes b/c Holly dosent rlly do lineart as much as she paints it – won't do it again tho

No. 297811

It's weird because her line-art isn't really that bad if >>297733 is indicative of her digital inking. I don't understand why she inks traditionally then autotraces them, when doing it digitally from the get go looks far superior for her. Especially when she's not trying to ink on a regular graphics tablet.

No. 297814


hm, thats true

my guess based of watching her vlogs is that she's just rlly attached/used to sketching on paper
she dosent like it when things are too 'clean/smooth' evident by the way she always mentions putting texture over her digital stuff and how she hates using the eclipse tool to do word bubbles

The sad part is that Holly could have gotten better if she actually practiced what she preached. Like she seems to have the work ethic to become a decent artist if she just spent some time really focusing on fundamentals. Unfortunately all the ass patting from her fan base is not doing her any favors.

No. 297917

Steven's appearance even has an in-show explanation (though, to be fair, she might've never seen specific episodes or made that complaint prior to the episodes). I can't tell if she can't really draw her characters' proportions younger or if she's doing it to make them more 'adult' and do more explicit BL scenes?

No. 297918

I don't understand why she didn't just make them 18 from the beginning then. Does their age actually play a role in the comic? The whole story just sounds poorly planned out.

No. 297945


She said she thought a lot of steven universe eps are fillers, so most likely she's skipped quite a few
In her first draft of purg (like 15 pages) her characters were wayyy younger/ elm kids
So the current version of purg IS her older version and now she wants to draw them even older so she's tacked on more story to suit that narrative
She's just doing whatever she wants with little rhyme or reason

Thanks for the support of Polly White! My husband and I got bored that night and ended up creating the video for fun, and honestly, to just talk shit.

wtf is clarence in that is it to show the head shape im assuming? Also idk if the guy behind Gumball went to Calarts, the production is based in europe.

Im probably wrong, the calarts style isn't what gets me about these styles and more the humour. Its all the same screaming, random lol humour and adventure time asthetics. This is mainly Cartoon Network tho, Disney is a different beast.

Calarts is always gonna be hyped but I think this snobbery comes from tumblr kids like Holly being snubbed because she failed to get in. They tell you time and time again, they dont want finished work only. It's sketches and studys of every kind. Holly don't do that shit so she was panned and uses her internet status to now shit on it because "she's too good for that".

Calarts isn't the end all be all, she can apply to countless other unis but Calarts just has status.

No. 298196


Its because her sketches actually look like crap that she insists on rendering them all\
I kind of sympathize w/ Holly cause its clear that she really wanted to be an animator but knows she can't get into that field w/ her lvl of skill, so she settles for comic books she can post edit and even now she realizes the whole first half of purg looks way different b/c she didn't stop to develop herself

I hope that I don't cause trouble with this. But I compare her recent comic compositions with some better ones (tried to stick to black and white comics with similar followings, not sure about the middle one…but didn't attach their names because i don't want to drag there names onto it).

Anyways like I hope this illustrates how haphazard her placement is. It isn't helped by how stupid she is with her bubble placement, or the fact her potato faces have zero eye lines to follow.

Also there's how the left leg looks off (It looks twisted to me? Idk. Can an art anon help here?) and how his hair really does look more like a cockatoo's ass than an actual head of hair.

No. 298407

It's fine to overlap the gutters if you're following the flow of the page but her bubbles are shoved to the side the other issue is she makes tangents constantly. Just look up composition tangents and you'll see. It's great since she talks about that rule all the time.

Composition is very difficult with comics as it requires a strong understanding of gestalt and a lot of film and animation teqniques. You can really se it in the comparison. All the top pages are ashetically pleasing in both the whole composition and in the individual parts. The there's the ability to tell the story through a thought out number of panels.

Like in one page each of these comics creates a better scene than holly can in three pages of her "best part"

Glad it was reported but jesus christ does she not grasp how fucked up pedophilia is? Just because they're "angsty teens" doesn't mean it isn't any more disturbing to see them drawn getting molested by a 40+ year old Hitler look-alike. She implied the kid got raped, so yeah, I guess nothing too serious right?

No. 298513

It's creepy she did the panels of the assault from the POV of the pedo, and not in an intentional, meta way like Nabakov's "Lolita". It felt like we were supposed to see the victim in the same sexual light the attacker sees him.

Maybe I'm over-reading it, but it feels more sensual (dialogue aside) and that we're supposed to be the creepy guy, rather than be squicked out.

I completely agree. She isn't really glorifying pedophilia and honestly there is a lot more snowflakey things we could focus on rather than over-analyzing her poorly written comic.

Yeah, I definitely get referring to the horrific shit as the good part. I don't do it as much because my readership backlashes a uncomfortable cringe wave. I feel like she'll probably get through it because it isn't explicit and it is technically diegetic.

The thing I don't get is, why doesn't she nsfw her posts? I don't like to be that guy. But it's pretty easy to do this and the only reason you wouldn't want to is because it cuts down on your ad impressions….then again, I'm one to talk because I constantly forget to turn it on.

Heck darn it, why am I so nosy? I wanted to see if I could find out who reported purgatory and apparently it wasn't hard. Now I'm sitting here like, should I tell her about this or not? Ugh, I agree the criticism on some of the technical stuff here but the mean spirited stuff…it's pretty harsh. Uuuuugh and it doesn't help that my friends have their art posted here comped to hers. I don't want her thinking I was posting here or something, I don't know.

I invited her to a comic critique circle forever ago and she never replied. I'm kind of worried if she finds this that she'll think I was involved.

If you find this, Holly, I had nothing to do with this (assuming you even remember who I am) and I doubt the other artist mentioned troll here either. The offer for my secret comic illuminati critique circle is still open though if you're interested. There's 100% less personal insults and it's open to all levels.

That said, I think I don't want her to find this even if I'm just being paranoid. I'm near certain she wants nothing to do with me/doesn't even care I exist. -m-

No. 298786

I don't know, when you have lots of followers it's easy to lose track of who asked you what. I guess this is all irrational since I didn't assume Cap or Lin had anything to do with this thread. It's just hard since my readers are big fans of Holly and…I don't know I want to build a bridge there for promotional sake (yes, ass kissing).

This whole Holly issue's been bothering me for a while. I said offhandedly that in her breast drawing tutorial that the boobs looked like cartoon feet. Everyone was laughing along until they realized I was talking about Holly. I took it down mostly because I was drunk when I said it and found it unprofessional of me. It rubs me the wrong way when people badmouth other artists…which really makes me question why I'd want to associate with her. It rubbed me the wrong way when she dissed Iron Spike's bubbles in her video about kickstarter. And seeing the pattern of this behaviour….I don't know where I stand.

I don't know. I'm sorry for the weird freak out thing. I really don't have a problem with a large portion of this thread. I agree with a lot of the criticism but I think I was turned off by other small parts. I also think that I'm in a bit of a panic in general because I'm prepping for my kickstarter and I'm a general ball of nerves.

Ug, hope I come off as less of an idiot this time.

No. 298801

Yeah anon I highly doubt Holly knows me personally. I reported her comic (and her shit no word yaoi trash) on taptastic because her bullshit finally made me annoyed enough to do so. I've never spoken directly to her tough we run in similar circles.
Honestly if you do tell her think before you do because you might start shit where it isn't happening. I'm not afraid of Holly, but again I know for fact you have no idea who I am.

No. 298808

Yeah, I'm kind of seeing that. It bums me out that she's burning a bridge here. I know I'm not popular by any means, but frick if I don't have shiny publishing connections. I learned early into this that you never really know who knows who, and damn if the comics I started following at 200 subs haven't turned into hits. I know publishing is a competition in some respects, but you don't get far treating it that way. Still, makes me sad….


This makes me wonder if we know each other like just in passing, since these circles are pretty small. Like, I'm sure I must know some people here which gives me solace.

I'm just sort of noticing how no one I follow is following Holly which just makes me wonder how isolated from things she is? I won't tell her about this stuff, because like it's been said the reporting is fair enough. If she does track it down to me I feel less worried than before since when it comes to the people I care about they might not even know she exists.

Her old one had so much more expression and personality. Even if the speech bubbles were really over-the-top, it still matched the look she was going for.
She makes a comparison ~7 mins in and justifies her change as having "a much more understanding of proportion." But her final copy just looks boring and we all know she's still shit at proportions.

We talked earlier in the thread about Holly's plan to be an art teacher, but we didn't mention she said she's just doing the degree as a safety net if she dosent become famous enough and b/c of how much student loans she'll have to start paying back
Most of her fans are impressionable young teens who want to be artists one day and think her going to art school is impressive even if its got 100% acceptance rate
They also think its cool shes able to sell her art but probably don't realize they're the only ones paying for it w/ pity buys

I get a lot of secondhand-embarassment/cringe so I don't watch her videos, but the summaries of her videos are really depressing. She sounds really lost about art, and it sounds like she should try doing something else for a while and then reconsider a career in the arts.

I definitely understand feeling unmotivated or frustrated by art, but I don't know, she doesn't really seem to have a goal in mind? Or a driving force?

shes straight up said she wouldn't be able to live if she couldn't do art as her job, working in any other field is beneath her and she just cannot

Man, I'm gonna sound like a dick but looking at her art, but I wouldn't have guessed how devoted she is based on how her art progression. I go through into a lot of depressive episodes that halt art activities, so I understand how disruptive that can be towards improving, but she's gotten worse or stagnated at the very least.

It's unfair to compare artistic growths of different people, but when people put themselves through FZD hell or 12-hour-a-day-drawing-NEET-life to the point of developing carpal tunnel or severe hand injuries (pic related) just to git gud, I find it hard to sympathize with her.

I know this thread is about Holly specifically, but I come across a lot of people similar to her, where their pride and Dunning-Kruger-level-of-self-importance just doesn't reflect their actual execution or practice.

I can understand how she spends 12+hours a day drawing with no improvement. She thinks her current style is "good enough" so she never challenges herself. Challange and doing things you are not comfortable with is how you improve.
She isn't okay with learning real anatomy because that takes effort. She isn't okay with watching tutorials of other artists because others intimidate her. She is intimidated and chooses to project this feeling with pure salt and hate for every other artist.

No. 299491


I don't have depression but what I do have in common w/ Holly is that we both barely get out of the house b/c we can't drive and need to draw
(I still go to my college campus a few times a week though)

I've realized now that's almost like being on house arrest and that I need to get out more to the library or something, not only is it better for overall mental health but you'll have more rl experiences to translate into your art

No. 299492

With all the figure studies she does for school you'd think she'd be able to translate that into her art, right?

I guess the reason why her figure studies look wayyy better than her characters is b/c she rlly is just copying and eyeing the reference and not absorbing any of the underlying structure to it

Also, it's such an eyesore. Her decision to make it red against white was so poor. Also, the lines so inconsistent, and often too fucking thick. Everything just mashes together into a big blob, and it's unreadable.

i may not be the greatest at perspective but i made an attempt to try and draw a grid based on that wonky-ass left panel and just, what happened here

better artnons feel free to correct me, but by my understanding, all lines heading towards/away from the viewer should meet at one (or sometimes two, if you're getting complex) singular vanishing points, and all lines perpendicular to that should be straight and flat across. see left compared to right.

tl;dr her perspective sucks because she doesnt even try but what else is new

No, you are totally right anon. All lines should go to the same point.

Also, she's an artist, she should just apply for an artist alley table. Or apply for a panel if that's what she wants to do. Alley seems like it would be good for her though, she can just sit around and sell copies of her shitty comics and prints and stuff.
It's really not hard to apply for one, just link a portfolio and wait for a response, have some stuff you want to sell and the money for a table. The only reason I see for asking for guest status is to try and get paid/get table space for free? She's not even very well known lol, maybe a tiny-ass con would feature her but they also have to care about operating costs far more so I doubt she would recieve any compensation.

Maybe I'm fucking up, but the vanishing points are both on the same side of the picture. If the Earth's horizon is pic related, then they're defying gravity. Not to mention the vertical lines are all going separate/opposing directions.

Objects closest to the "camera" should be bigger than objects further away, but she did the opposite (like the wall's border). Even if you move one of the VPs to the left where it should be, the VPs are way too close together (makes objects look like they're "falling off the page"/distorted).

I don't hate this girl or anything, but she churns out pages so fast, she's definitely sacrificing quality for quantity.

I think the table has reversed T legs (like some school desks), while the chairs have normal "stick legs", but she didn't draw the left side and there's no space for it anyway (the center of the table is very offset).

>gets bitched at for not changing pose enough

I was thinking about what holly was actually going for in the piece, there are a few angles to play croquet at
yes ppl are very hunched over to eye it better but you don't have to hunch to tap the ball

I wanted to keep the one the legs back, the mallet relatively the same size (there are variations in mallets) to keep the general pose holly was going for: because she wanted Heather to play croquet in action but also show her face and pose

thats why I put: choose play or pose b/c its impractical to do both (hunch over like ur invested in where the ball ends up/ or just lean on ur mallet looking pretty)

The gold outlines really clash. But honestly, the entire concept for these pins were poor from the very start. Fully-body, realistically proportioned art just does not work for enamel pins, especially when the detailing gets that small (like in batshota's hair and the Homestuck-pointy-glasses-guy's entire head). I mean, of course there's exceptions, but this is not one of them.

Her other enamel pins turned out a lot better because of conservation of detail and that they're only heads. The gold trimming doesn't work with her palettes though.

Unfortunately, most of her fans are online ones, so she doesn't need to worry so much about being professional at adressing them. Ugh. Even GalatiBun (or w/e is her handle) is more professional and level-headed than her, and she's fucking 14.

No. 326156

The thing is that she has potential, she's working a lot and actually doing things instead of just talking about them, which is impressive. But then there's this whole side where she thinks she's the best of the best, claims to be good at basically anything she does (in her vlog from yesterday she said that she's really good at graphic design, which… she's not. That cover is a mess design-wise) and talks shit about every other artist out there. I just don't get it.

But I think her kickstarter is reasonable if she's really asking for around 2k. But let's see, I kind of hope that she fails because she's so stuck-up and terrible as a person and needs a reality check for her art.

Holly deleted all of her tumblr posts and replaced it with these weird aesthetic templates to feature her art.
I cant get over how ugly and cheesy these templates are. sure whatever use these ugly things for one or two drawings but not every single one. She keeps using the same templates but changes the background colors or object placement.

So true, half my job is making mock-ups and I hate it. It's so tedious.

Seriously though, her kickstarter is a mess. She hit her stretch goal days ago and never made a new one. She says she just wants to make a profit and like…does she not realize you aren't supposed to make profits off kickstarter? It's all supposed to go into the product.

No. 348084


I've heard that Huion's monitor tablets are good, but not as good as cintiq. However, the price-benefit is way better. The only complaints I've seen so far besides the hotkey stuff is that the screen is more reflective, it's made with more plastic and it isn't as sturdy as a cintiq when you put it on your table.

They do try to listen to the feedback and improve tho, so I heard. Instebrak gave up using wacoms and now uses solely Huion.

Sage for tablet talk.

I must also add that I am too very salty kek I hope she gives away one of those monitor tablets? I don't know if she can give away the Huion though, considering it was given to her for free by the company? I guess that's illegal.

Sage for unimportance but her art is really good! If it had some more substance and theme it could definitely be considered into calarts
Definently a refreshing look when compared to holly's stiff and unskillfull shit.

Holly really does need to learn the basics before developing a style since once you know how to realistically draw you can play with the figure and distort it in an asthetically pleasing way while still make the character look "correct" in a sense. I don't think holly ever has really mentioned life drawing classes for models or architecture which is ultimately her downfall here. You learn the basics, study for the genre of art you want to create then after years of practicing and maybe under the hand of a mentor you execute and produce the art you've been learning to properly create all along…

Holly literally just jumped straight in, shat on all the other steps to produce quality art and then has the nerve to get upset when someone points it out

So yeah, watching this person's video is so much more refreshing especially considering how humble and excited she's being about art. You can definitely sense her passion for what she's doing here.

I am low key jealous at how she's pretty good at colour schemes because thats something I struggle with but I'm now starting to realise she uses a lot of the same colours so maybe thats untrue. I've been seeing this >>351338 combination of orange and red a lot

No. 351837

Ehhh, I feel like she does use this color selection as a way to not improve and be like, I KNOW COLOR GUYZ DON'T WORRY cause if you look at her art
anything that doesn't have Analogous Relationship or Complementary Relationship (Which are the easiest to get right, you learn them in elementary school, and also they take up the majority of her artwork ) looks all muddy and not good together, because she doesn't actually understand complex color theory. She's hiding behind the easiest color techniques, which is a bit disappointing tbh If she learned about undertones, saturation, blending combinations, choosing different color pallets so the shading isn't mucky, maybe her painting would be better. Right now it looks super basic.

Not OP but as an artist I do agree in both that her coloring is very hit and miss. She is trying to achieve the muted colors look when some of the time the colors don't really clash right. She has some idea of color theory but doesn't know how to apply them. Honestly though I'm more distracted with her painting turds with her terrible line art, you can always tell he is rushing or lacks common sense

All her advice in this will make your work so stiff. She really doesn't understand the importance of gesture. I get taking time to study musculature, but that's not even what she's doing…

Quickly sketch the major shapes. That's it. Hell, tracing the major shapes on to of pictures will teach you way more than what she's doing. She needs to get out of the headspace of drawing what she thinks is there and archive instead what she sees! Stop over thinking it!

Holly herself said she didn't believe in doing thumbnail sketches for her comic so why is she selling books for it?

I used to have sheets of paper from Blue Line Pro with thumbnail templates on them for sketching but now I just draw rectangles and fill them in in my own sketchbooks. A thumbnail book really isn't necessary and I definitely would not buy something like that from her. Holly is such a hypocrite.

I make shrinkie charms all the time to sell.
I wouldn't use sharpie cause it bleeds into the sanded plastic and doesnt have a good blackness to it. Paint markers or paint like markers (a la galaxy marker or even gelly roll) work best. And no matter what material you use you ABSOLUTELY need to seal it with resin cause it WILL rub right the hell off.

I don't think it's a good method for what she's using it for. That shit will DEFINITELY rub off is she isn't sealing it. (and its Holly you know she fucking isn't). If you want to have a more professional charm, just check out acornpress or similar. Don't use shrinkies unless you want it to 100% look homemade.

On a related note, months back Holly threw a fit about Calarts and made a bunch of claims about the program that were pretty fucking ridiculous and I tried to call them out about it in a way that wasn't too /aggressive/. She ended up throwing a fit, posted a sloppy animated gif to prove "she could animate", and blocked me before I could get a decent word in.

MewTripled is a 3rd or 4th year at CalArts, iirc


Back in the beginning of the year, sketchynatalia made a video called "art supplies for broke as hell artists" here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaDD5lsQ0Uc

In the video, she suggests using cheap graph paper or lined notebook paper to draw on. TBH, this is semi-common advice at least in animation-student circles to increase your mileage.

ONE DAY LATER, Holly uploads "Cheap Supplies Every Artist Needs" here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKyO_mYHFxY

In the video she ABSOLUTELY rips into the idea of using 'lined notebook paper and shit,' and recommends making your own sketchbooks.

What's really fustrating with this is despite being a student she still writes comments and post videos about all her art "knowledge" as if she's gotten real work before. (And I mean work as in a studio/commercial art environment.)

It just feels like Holly is playing pretend to hide the fact that she's actually very self conscious about her art. Holly has even mentioned in a earlier video about her not working well with others. So… dose Holly think she's going to make the big bucks on just making her shitty hand made merchandise or will she ever really work in a studio?

No. 363316

Damn, just came across this older version of her comic and it looks so much better than the new one. Most of the comments in that video are telling her that. Sure it seems like a bit of her own version of Tim Burton's style, but I feel everything was stylized better than it currently is.
But I suppose her 'new style' takes way less time to produce and she has mentioned something before about just wanting Purgatory to be done.

The only reason this thread exists is because of Holly's attitude, nobody would pay too much negative attention to her skills otherwise.
There was a vlog of hers where you can see an address from someone who bought stuff at her store (she acknowledges it and doesn't bother to cover it up when editing), I can't be the only one who thinks this goes beyond being unprofessional into being flat out disrespectful. It's shameful to show this level of disregard for people who buy on your store and support you.
