Most well known for her cal-arts rant, where she bitches about how hard it is to get in while claiming to have gotten in.


Mirror of aforementioned Cal-Arts rant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvnD-9XOs5k

>21 year old "freelancer" (lives at home with her mother and runs an online shop selling ugly art)

>Salty Youtube fujoshi artist that claims that her art is superior because she went to art school
>Constantly preaches that art takes hard work, claims to always practice and study but her art hasn't improved in over two years
>Whines about being a starving artist with no money, yet has enough money to buy a new Mac computer and a Cintiq tablet within the same week, then sold said cintiq because she got sponsored for her shitty shitty art
>When faced with genuine criticism, she replies with "it's my style hurrr get over it!!"
>Whines about nobody buying from her online store, but when people do, she whines about having to package and ship off her items
>Pandering to the Musicals crowd to get more Youtube $$$
>Claims to be the only non tumblrina artist and is a textbook tumblr fujo
>Generally insufferable and shitty person

Not that I'm against mannequins, but people would improve more if they used photo references of actual people. There are like a shit ton on the interwebs like pixelovely and posemaniacs (those sites even show how muscles work). And if you're lucky, you'd get into a live nude drawing session in your area.

full offense, but holly is honestly too fucking stupid to have any understanding of what she is talking about.

She is super fucking obviously a youtube-intellectual, and from her comments alone you can see her parroting the shit she's watching on youtube.

A 20k/year online art school isn't going to give her any actual ability to evaluate things with "facts, not feelings."


Holly is also too stupid to realize that when Calarts has their Accepted Students day, they publish a full list of all the accepted students for that year and send it out to those invited.

It would not be hard to find the 2014 list that was mailed out and have proof she was lying.

No. 376117

the first portion of that reply is practically illegible. her claim that she didn't go because of money is also either a lie or a testament to her stupidity because the CalArts website has a literal "Tuition and Financial Aid" section, which includes scholarships.

No shit Sherlock, that's what it's for. I'm an art teacher and I feel like I would strangle this bitch if I had to deal with her in class and I already deal with enough students that won't draw from life or pictures of real people for reference because it isn't their "style".

I fucking missed a bullet there. Thank fucking god.

I'm in that year and never actually heard anything about this list at accepted students day unless I threw it out or something. If I had it on hand, I would definitely look into it, but I honestly doubt it's a thing anybody has anymore. Especially something from 3/4 years ago.
I know plenty of people that got accepted to CalArts but had to turn it down because it's pretty damn expensive even with financial aid since they give you barely any money.

i'm >>376117 and stand corrected then. that's a real bummer for people who are actually good artists and busted their asses to get in.

No. 376971

The biggest thing that pisses me off about Holly is the fact that she does all of these fairly nice drawings from references in her sketchbooks/videos, putting in time and effort into lighting and detail.
Why doesn't she put any of that shit into her actual content? The redraw of Purgatory is a line-art-only mess, you can tell she never uses the stupid dolls when drawing her characters, and there's rarely ever backgrounds.
Like, what is her disconnect between sketchbook and actual art pieces? What a waste of time.

No. 377023

>it's pretty damn expensive even with financial aid since they give you barely any money.
That sucks knowing that someone is already close to their dream only to be blocked by a paywall.
Also, I hope you're doing well in Calarts, anon.

>The redraw of Purgatory is a line-art-only mess
She mentioned before that she wanted to draw faster which would explain the messy line art she has. It sounded like a lazy excuse for me.

Also, how many pages per week does she publish anyway? Most comic artists I follow only post once or twice a week. I didn't bother reading her comic because I didn't like the premise (and her attitude doesn't help either).

>Why doesn't she put any of that shit into her actual content?

Reminds me of an acquaintance who was able to pull off a realistic drawing and when it comes to actual work she never applies what she learned. Even more awkward is that she thinks she's entitled to join the art group (comprised of semi-close friends) I was in even though we never bothered looking for new recruits (best if you have friends to form a group with and not with strangers). She also bitched about it in an open forum. In front of the 6 known artists and an audience of around 1000 people.

No. 377071

If I remembered correctly, she tried to post a new page twice a week, which then became one page a week, and now she's given up and is going to post a whole chapter at once, when she's done drawing it.

No. 377855

Holly's anatomy isn't that bad, it's her proportion that's off? Like the pieces she draw show she has a basic understanding of what muscles go where but then she distorts stuff in unappealing ways.
Also, by strictly doing anatomy studies off photos, Holly seems to have a bit of trouble capturing force in her drawings and thus ends up with stiff drawings.

No. 377895

No, no matter how you dice this, she's still got shit anatomy. Like at best a mild understanding.

No. 377973

I think what Holly suffers from is more along the lines of not knowing how to properly make her anatomy cartoony.
Instead of creating her style off of simplifying her irl anatomy drawings, she's trying to apply anatomy onto her "style". By keeping her misguided tries at anatomy from when she was younger and mixing it with real anatomy, her characters look more like mannequins with creepy cartoon faces slapped on (why the chin thing happens a lot - she doesn't know where to place the face on the head).
This makes her characters look distorted and gross, especially when she tries to make them move. It's like watching mannequins move; stiff and cartoony like her style, but too semi-real with wonky proportions that it looks creepy.

No. 377977


You are like the least qualified person ever to answer this question.

No. 378061

truly spoken like someone who has no fucking idea what they're talking about. i've seen mediocre artists nab studio jobs, but her? absolutely no way any place would hire her.

because to properly make your work cartoony, you need a good understanding of actual real life anatomy. i don't know why it's so hard for artists with styles that steer from realism to accept this.

i watched that earlier today, and while she does say some dumb shit (as per usual), what strikes me the most is how she's not really doing any studies or going out of her comfort zone in this sketchbook challenge she's set for herself. she's honestly just filling pages for the sake of filling them. i predict she won't improve much of anything by the end of the month.

i think her real problem is she has absolutely no objective, critical eye. she might claim to know her art is shit, but she's unable to see where, or why, or how to fix it. she's just going to make the same mistakes over and over and over again.

No. 378067

samefag, but
>I just wish more jobs provided examples as to what they look for
between this and the CalArts rant, i think her lack of proper education gets in the way of her reading portfolio requirements and understanding what they actually fucking mean. it's becoming a pattern, imo.

No. 378247

>>she's honestly just filling pages for the sake of filling them. i predict she won't improve much of anything by the end of the month.
That's usually what happens when you set an unrealistic amount of sketchbook pages to fill. It's best to fill 5 pages deliberately than 20 just to complete your sketchbook.

>>i think her lack of proper education gets in the way of her reading portfolio requirements and understanding what they actually fucking mean.

No. 378257

>That's usually what happens when you set an unrealistic amount of sketchbook pages to fill. It's best to fill 5 pages deliberately than 20 just to complete your sketchbook.
All I could think of is an old video she posted (last year) about not wanting to do "stupid" art challenges.

No. 378264

yeah she had a real beef with the semantics, because "most art challenges on Youtube aren't really challenging, so they should be called something else". filling 600 pages in 30 days is certainly challenging, but she's not going to learn anything or improve, so it's pointless.

No. 378862

HC can't even finish her own art challenges and has zero studio experience. She also described herself as being someone who can't work with others. Studios are all about working as a team under directors and producers.
I won't say that Holly can't do concept art because I don't know that. What I do know is that when going into an interview for a job at a game studio they're looking for someone talented, capable to meet deadlines, and matches the studios culture. I just doubt that HC can meet all these expectations.

So does her agreeing with this video invalidate her Anatomy and Proportion video? I don't even think she follows the advice she gives.

And the fact that people in her comments talk of how Holly is the only one they can "trust" when it comes to art really makes me sad. Sorry for the bad English.

No. 379108

I just don't get her. Why do tons of kids follow her word like God? She's got nothing to offer and provides mediocre advice. Coupled with her not using her resources to their fullest potential. I would've killed to have a Cintiq, yet she barely seems to use it (I haven't seen any recent video though). She doesn't really have any creativity as well, most of her drawings look bland and uninspired.

Idk why people like her…

**cintiq not confía

No. 379228

>Why do tons of kids follow her word like God?
They're young and they prolly follow only people with mediocre art because they get ~intimidated~ following professionals who offer good advice.

And it's not a shocker that so many young artists these days needs an ~art style~ to the point of ignoring to do work on their fundamentals.

Most of her art are basically in ~her own comics style~ and I highly doubt she bothered trying to do any decent studies or exercises that would challenge her to go outside her ~art style~.

No. 379460

And Holly wanted that cintiq so fucking bad too.
It's so weird to watch an artist make so many mistakes when they have all the time in the world to get better. She's like 21 and doesn't have to work her way through school (her youtube $) like a lot of people have to do to get through school.
It just confuses the fuck out of me.

No. 379475

Nah. I feel like most artists don't want to improve after they get 'internet famous'. I mean it kind of makes sense on some level but it still is pretty unfortunate.

No. 379559

Dunno, sometimes I find myself more productive when I have to work my day job rather than when I have all the time in the world. With a narrower window of time to draw, I tend to police my slacking off better. Plus you're already on work mode.

No. 379680

far be it from me to defend Holly in any way, but she makes dirt money off Youtube - although i suppose that doesn't much matter because an online school with 100% acceptance rate can't possibly be that expensive in the first place.

unless you have very good work ethic drilled in, it's very hard to work in your own time without falling into the pit of "i'll do it later". the schedule and structure of education / another job can help a lot in, as you say, policing our tendency to slack off.

No. 380781

Judging from earlier posts I have a feeling that Holly is trying to branch out into industry jobs so she is trying to be a bit more 'professional'. Unfortunately her art isn't quite up to industry standards and the only reason she is internet famous is because of her edgy and unprofessional personality. I mean kudos to her for trying to make the jump but she really is going to lose a bunch of followers if she keeps this up.

She then starts talking about some family garbage and how she had a ton of 'culturally rich' items her family bought, and how she's so cool and interesting because she 'has that to draw from' (but only draws fujo shit, so…???).
She then gets pissy that "artists in Europe don't like to draw Europe, which is stupid because I like Europe, so fuck them".
Then she goes back on what she says by saying that "nostalgia is totally valid guys, look how cool I am for playing devil's advocate on my own video!"

Yeah, not a swear in sight, totally scripted, but I'm unsurprised.

It's not the culture of skillshare to swear. Official guidelines for teachers specifically say you can't post explicit or offensive content, and no rants. Basically all this proves is that she doesn't care about her audience until they are directly making her money. She gets paid a small amount for teaching classes and if skillshare doesn't approve her class because she's being unprofessional and swearing, buhbye tiny paycheck.

Her fans in the course reviews though.

Sage because there's not really any milk here, but here ya go.

Though at least we can maybe get some low tier kek out of the fact that she still claims she's actually working on her online schooling? And that she "teaches people what she can" when that includes exactly nothing that she has made videos about?

No. 382995

Is English not her first language because she apparently does the same thing in her comic.

Speaking of her comic I honestly don't get how people actually read/like that thing. Even ignoring the art, the story is just so bad? Like don't get me wrong the whole 'forbidden love in a cult' premise had potential but the pacing is just so bad and the characters are just so bland. The only real positive thing about her comic is the world building but even that barely makes it into the actual comic itself. Hopefully her new comic won't be as bad.

I read the first 70 pages and it's so boring with NOTHING happening. Also it's plagued with so many autonomy and perspective errors that it's impossible to ignore.

Even in this picture, she tried to white out his open eyes and make it closed, but you can still clearly see the open eyes. I stared at the picture for so long to figure out wth was happening

No. 383004

See I would even be willing to forgive the anatomy and perspective errors if the style was at least interesting but it's just so boring and unoriginal? I mean at least the original one shot she made was interesting to look at but this?

A strong story and well developed characters could have also saved the comic because I have actually enjoyed webcomics that had 'worse' art than her webcomic but had pretty good writing to make up for it.

You can have bad art or bad writing, not both.

No. 383010

Didn't Holly say she wrote the script out for Purgatory already? I always get confused because she constantly changes her mind about stuff like how she changed her mind about making thumbnail sketches first.

Also the more I see shit like the fake math the more I just think Holly is incredibly lazy. A small gag like 'problem D' is fine but at least make sure the other problems make even a bit of sense. I mean come on Holly take a little bit of pride in your work.

No. 383177

How the hell is she drawing her shit anymore?
Whiting out this shit when you digitize the drawing is literally the easiest thing ever. Unless she has some sort of weird complex where she thinks editing a scanned image is cheating, why not take the time to clean up ALL the marks instead of just whiting out the background and praying for the photoshop gods to do the work for you?

(I'm assuming this was a scanned drawing instead of created digitally. If this was done straight to digital and she still fucked this up, then she's even stupider than I thought.)

No. 383242

In this livestream (sorry, not letting me embed for some reason), you can see that she just takes the old files and draws over the top of them.
I would say this is actually a fairly good tool to improving anatomy, since she's working directly off of old anatomy and can see what's wrong, but she does some really infuriating things, like using a really soft drawing tool that makes her lines so blurry she literally has to shave them down using an eraser tool, or not using straight edges for some objects (like the ladder) and using it for others (the wood beams near the skulls).
I'm guessing this is why she doesn't notice the open eyes still being visible; she's drawing on top of another picture without bothering to check if it looks good after deleting what's underneath.
This whole comic is infuriating.

Watching Holly's recent video - sounds like she really isn't getting anything out of her studies. She sounds so close-minded about it. With art school you can only get from it as much as you put in. And as far as I'm aware, she studies online? She needs to get the fuck off her computer and go into a class room where people talk about their work and offer critique and advice and encourage her to experiment. She's so proud of 'challenging' herself with 600 pages in a month - but she isn't, because she's just drawing the same shit over and over again, just quicker and less detailed.

Her work is just going to stay stagnant (and shit) if she keeps this obnoxious, insular attitude.

Found this review of the comic.
I think the review is quite on point, but it's weird how the art of the comic isn't critiqued.

No. 384342

Eh, there's a few critiques of the art (like the dumb faces and outfits), but this early on in Purgatory's creation (the review was written before Holly even finished the rape scene), the art wasn't as bad as it is now. It actually had some flair back then.
God, I really hate how bland and disgustingly boring her art is now. Even when her old art was at its wonky-est, it was cute and cartoony. Now it's all big chins, no shading, copy-paste backgrounds, and has all those photoshop errors like the missing lines. It doesn't help the atmosphere the review praises at all.

No. 384343

I feel like webcomics usually can get away with 'bad art' as long as the story/writing is good but the reverse is not nessearily true. Art style is usually something that initially hooks a new viewer but it isn't enough to keep someone invested in your comic if the story sucks or if your update schedule is shit.
With Holly her writing and art really isn't that great but from what I have heard her update schedule is pretty consistent so I kinda understand why people read her comic?

I was monitoring the server for milk and it had calmed down so it was mostly her (clearly really young) fan base talking about drawing.

My impression was that Holly was trying to use the discord server to just house PDFs/resources, appointed mods when it got insane with gore etc. on Friday, and then got mad when mods set up channels for talking??

No. 388731

I think she hyperfocused on trying to fixed perceived flaws like her art lean that she lost track of actually made her work good in the first place. Like the main problems with her stuff now is that it looks very stiff and that the figures don't really interact with the environment well. These problems probably arose due to the fact that she likely spent hours drawing from maniquines rather than drawing from life. It is obvious Holly is putting time into her craft (unlike some YouTube artists) but her efforts are pointless if she keeps ignoring fundamentals and keeps avoiding actually learning some basic art theory.

Honestly, I don't think she's extremely bad as an artist (bc there's worse), she's pretty good at colouring, sketching quickly, she has some decent ideas and a nice aesthetic BUT why does she have to be such a bitch to everyone ? does she think this will help her selling her work in any way ?? I personally wouldn't buy art from someone who is this rude/bitchy on social media

No. 390593

Her signature bad attitude is one of her main selling points and actually sets her apart from most youtube artists. It's one of the reasons she has such a large fanbase. As for her art it is not awful but it is lacking in fundamentals. Holly will only continue to stagnate if she keeps ignoring the basics and keeps churning out trash in order to fill her personal quota. She needs to realize that she needs to find a good median between quantity and quality.

Holly's lack of improvement genuinely scares me to the core. Just the idea you don't improve despite drawing consistently is a nightmare. I get that she draws the same shit, but you'd figure she'd improve at that subject.

A lot of her pages here aren't even truly terrible. I'd say her thumbnail pages, trees, and those first gesture drawings from reference are good. Her presentation skills are pretty fair, too.

No. 392276

Holly doesn't improve because she keeps making the same mistakes and refuses to actually fix her mistakes. Take her jaws for example, it doesn't matter how many times she practices drawing heads and skulls if she keeps drawing them wrong. Holly needs to get her head out of her own ass and actually look at her work critically/ take criticism from other people.

No. 392493

Pan's not cow-worthy but he is a bit cringe at times. It's obvious that he's one of those guys who is kind of awkward and maybe not so social in person but builds up this 'cooler' persona online. His videos are well put together and well researched so it makes up for it. His podcast is significantly harder to watch than his videos thanks to how awkward his co-hosts can be, but they're not exactly dripping with milk.

I'm guessing Holly is a fan of his channel and is trying to schmooze her way in with her art. Too bad her style sucks and I doubt Pan is a fan of Leno-chinned fujoshit.

No. 392499

You ever think Holly makes all these tutorial vids full of crap advice to try and sabotage any possible competition?

I have a theory that Holly's endgame (whether she realizes it or not) is to try and off as much artistic competition as she can. We've all heard that she's a terror to her current and former friends, yet she seems awfully keen on making nice with youtube artist much more popular than she is (Baylee, Lemia, Pan). I think she's trying to get close enough to them to freely sling her venom and emotionally beat them down like she did with Donnie.

Every time she does good colour it's obviously accidental. I swear to god, was pisses on her colours as soon as she's done. Like, why does she do a yellow wash on everything?

This scene doesn't even require it tonally, so it's not even an attempt to give mood in a lazy ass way. If you want a yellow looking palette , build one. Don't just piss on your canvas.

I fucking can't get over people saying she's good with colour. If it isn't basic as fuck, she doesn't know what she's doing.

I don’t think HC would do that kind of cut away since that might be harder to draw than that lazy mid shot.
Also she traced the movement of the flag. I have no argument with rotoscoping to learn to animate a more natural movement but if she just would have actually studied the movement and animated that flag using her style that movement wouldn’t be so jarring.
Over all Holly is rushing through this to finish before the trend dies.
Holly Brown, you’re lazy and a try-hard.

No. 398150

After that moving shot of the ship and the flag, the rest of the animatic is so boring. It's just a character standing there in the middle of the frame. What's the point of the setting when the character is just spazzing around looking at the camera?

No. 398784

Looks like Holly is entering Jazza's animation contest. Judging from all the WIPs she has been posting on her twitter I have got to say that her animation isn't as bad as it could be? Like her timing is completely off and she doesn't apply a lot of the basic principles of animation so everything looks a bit wonky but she isn't really cutting corners like a lot of beginners usually do. I feel like Holly is the perfect example of someone working harder and not smarter.

No. 398972

Because she wants a Wacom mobile. Is she gonna turn around and sell that a week later?

No. 398995

After looking at her animation I’m not really impressed. Just looks really amateur and forgettable. Holly seems really proud of herself since she keeps posting WIPs for every couple of frames. I’m more disappointed that she’s going to color it in the style she has. I describe her shading and coloring style as “lumpy and clumpy”. Really wish she would use differing line weights just to make her characters a little more fun to look at…

No. 399005

If holly hadnt taken actual animation classes I would atleast give her some leaniency. The bitch has gone to school and came out with a shittier style and concept of colours etc than when she came in.
It's such shit the characters in the background have such a fucked anatomy like Baylee's but they both swear up and down that 'oh! Thats foreshortening you dummies! Gosh pick up a book!'
You can't blame it on people being uneducated/'its my style' after the 193939th person tells you something looks off.

No. 399021

I know she went to art school but that doesn't necessarily mean Holly has taken an animation course. As much as I dislike Holly as a person I think it is unfair to say her animation is awful especially considering some stuff I have seen from people who have graduated with degrees in animation.

No. 399026

except that she did an entire video talking about how he took animation classes and showing some of her old assignments from it

No. 399039

According to her it was an anatomy course for animators and judging from her skill in both anatomy and animation I really doubt they taught much of either in that class. Also, judging from the assignments she posted in that video, it doesn't seem like that class taught any of the fundamentals of animation (ie we don't see the classical flour sack exercise that teaches you weight or the bouncing ball exercise that teaches you timing). Also, unlike making comics, Holly doesn't claim she's a master at animation or even give cringy animation advice (yet atleast) so for now I'm just going to stick to complaining about her awful attitude and ugly art/comic work.

The subject matter doesn’t bother me because watermarks and shit isn’t something that any good artist worries about.

I’m more frustrated at how HC said she was going to regularly post when we all know damn well she’s not going to. I know this bitch has school and stuff. Holly did say she was going to work on her comic (which she has only finished two pages) instead of inktober. This isn’t really milk but I just see a pattern with Holly. She says she’s going to do something but never finishes. Holly then has no problem passing her criticism on other artist when she doesn’t have her shit together.

I think the major problem people have is that Holly herself is so lazy about everything but won't miss a chance to put down others, and also the fact that Holly has pretty much talked about this like it's her magnum opus.

This is why Holly's condescending attitude pisses me off so much, she makes most of the same mistakes she advocates so strongly against.

She also has an awful case of same face syndrome even though she made a huge video on how not to have same face syndrome. If you shave the heads of her male characters there is absolutely no way to tell most of them apart.

I'd forgive this if Holly was somewhat humble but considering she nitpick the tiniest thing in other people's art like not drawing their bubbles themselves (even though hers are NEVER roundish and always look like shit!)

Why is her character's bangs covering the camera ? Why is she looking up to the top left but pointing her camera elsewhere ?

Also Holly's pacing is so bad. It's been 3+ weeks and absolutely nothing has happened in Paranormal Plague. She did not need to waste 3 pages setting up Hershel's situation especially since none of the pages actually add anything new. I mean if her updates were longer than 1 page a week then this wouldn't be a huge problem but at this rate I doubt we'll actually get into the story for another 2+ years.

No. 405183

I guess but Holly didn’t really improve on the oringnal. To say the least it’s a character trait of Tetsuo to have a larger forehead and his hair style only makes his face look larger.

I don't think Tetsuo is meant to look "good" though. If they wanted him to look more generic/handsome they obviously would have been capable of drawing him that way. Besides, I thought that it was kind of emphasizing his age since kids tend to have bigger foreheads (yeah, he's 15, but still, to me it emphasized how fucked up what's going on is because he does look more like a young kid).

Just my two cents on it. I don't think that it's an improvement to make his face larger personally, it makes him look more generic, and it also wasn't a "mistake" as Holly seems to see it as, it was a conscious character design choice.

No. 405281

Honestly I'm with Holly on this one, putting those huge water marks that cover parts of the art are annoying and pointless especially because it's mostly deviantArt tier artists who do this. Her original video was just really incoherent. Putting a signature is enough.

The angry brows and side glance give most of these expressions an agressive or smug and antagonistic note. But it's hard to tell what's going on. Totally because that's more authentic than "dumb hoe" basic expressions and cannot become repetitive or fail. Her way of creating expressions is not making something interesting and understandable for an audience and communicating with her audience but making something thuper speshul for herself and better than average expressions made to be readable and understood.

That bottom left chin look like a parody. What is she even using ref for, because the case she's pulling looks nothing like anything on the page.

Honestly my nails look like shit after working with ink for an extended amount of time, it gets on your fingers and can get under your nails when you wash your hands. But if you're constantly filming your hands you'd think she'd clean them beforehand.

No. 410948

It's like she only uses thick, heavy brush pens? Like, I know she has pens with actual hard tips, but somehow her linework is so sloppy/inconsistent that it looks exactly like she used a brush.
Or, if she actually used brush pens with a straight edge to draw houses, she is legit stupid.

No. 411040

The lines aren't straight, pretty sure she only used the ruler for parts of the under drawing (like lining up the windows).

I've only ever seen her use brush pens and maybe the odd fineliner, I doubt she knows how to use dip pens. For someone who spat on inktober as hard as she did her inks are very underwhelming.

No. 411221

She could trim the nails closer to the finger, it'd be less gross I think. I work with paint and ink too and I can clean up my hands enough, it's not exactly difficult. In Holly's case, the grime is consistent with every other shot we've seen of her room/working area

Holly is now thinking of tackling a 4 minuet short film featuring the character in this model sheet (picture related). In her own words Holly said “a lot of people judge my animations 400 times harder than my normal work”, so I guess instead of doing any actual animation study she’ll just go full retard and try something beyond her skill level. What a “genius”

No. 411965

It’s ambitious. One of the fastest ways to learn to do something is by actually doing it. The animation is probably going to end up being kinda amatuer but if Holly actually take criticism for once she probably will improve. Highly doubt that will happen though.

No. 411973

As annoying as Holly is, the scene wasn't graphic and it is diegetic, even if poorly written.

Lmao, she was struggling to animate that dance thing and wants to make a FOUR MINUTE film by herself? Even at a lazy 12fps, that's 2880 frames. The model sheet already looks lazy, good luck Holly.

No. 411974

I agree with you. You have to fail to succeed but in Holly’s case if she can’t handle criticism then I wouldn’t recommend trying to be an animator. Holly has a lot to learn about working with a team and her own work ethic if she’s thinking about a career in animation. I’m not saying that she doesn’t have the potential. That’s up to her but what I am saying at her current level her portfolio wouldn’t get a second look.

She should actually watch some and read the credits, there are always a ton of people involved.

Props to her for wanting to pay the VAs properly though, and not just asking for volunteers or offering 20 bucks.

No. 411993

I have 3 observations about Holly’s current creative endeavors:

1) Those animated films for Les Goblines are not just made by one student. 2 to 3 students are working on those and that’s not including the voice work and sound design.
2) The film is most likely the only thing they’re working on for a year and it’s non-stop work to get it finished.
3) Holly has not shown that she understands motion or 12 basic principles of animation. She’s still learning and Holly should put more effort in the assignments she has for school before trying her hand at these personal projects.

I foresee Holly getting burned out on these personal projects and having an episode over the stress of not meeting her time limits. Holly’s time management is in question here and based on her upload history I don’t entirely think she’s capable of any of this. Just a reminder cause HC talks a bit game but Holly’s still a student and has no studio experience.

No. 412023

Urgh not to repeat what others have said but Les Gobelins is an insanely competitive school so not only do they take the best students, they have awesome teachers and people work like crazy there.

So those films are made by incredibly talented people in a group, take tons and tons of time and are supervised by pros.

Yes and no. If you just rush through something without reflecting on it, it's not going to help you. Look at her Sketchbook Slam challenge. It definitely didn't help her with anything and was just a waste of time.

She also kinda just jumped into her animated dance sequence and it's very bad. She said it would take her at least a year anyway, so I doubt it'll happen.

Um…Holly dear, no. It is absolutely not. As an animation student myself, I can already tell how difficult this is going to be for her. Lineless drawing, not animating, DRAWING is already difficult enough as it is - and animating each part? Goodness. I'm guessing she's thinking of animating it with bones and tweens? That's the only possibly way that lineless might be easier to do.
Also…does anyone notice that his left tricep is wider than his right? And his forearm is also wider but his hand is smaller on his left?

Yes Holly. Schools have a "yearly film" that are the showcase of their studies throughout the year. How much have you studied animation? Are you even studying it? Do you even know the fundamentals? Also there's more than one student who works on one film, unless they're really ambitious (but usually they're on the shorter end). Yes it is possible to do it, yes you can do it. However, it being successful and pleasing to the eye is an entirely different cup of tea.

Also literally anyyone can be a webcomic artist, there is no entrance barrier besides making an account on tapas/smackjeeves/tumblr and finding people with low enough standards to read your shit (which is almost guaranteed if you draw BL).

Kek, putting hers as the last one wasn't the best final impression. But I'm pretty impressed with some of the entries, especially considering most of Jazza's audience are probably teenagers.

>have to redraw the animation several times
>more loose
I'm literally facepalming over here. The fact that you have no lines does not mean your animation process will be any easier. You'll need to block in the colors, each separate color, as well as add the lines where body parts meet for more clarity.
It does NOT make the animation process easier, although it might for someone who actually knows how to use the shapes and what shapes the body is made out of. Holly, you don't have this knowledge. The example picture is squashed, her head is the size of her ribcage, she's leaning off to one side and is not grounded in that scene and she looks so out of place! Plus, her chest seems to be facing us while her head is facing the side - I really don't think that was her intention. It looks really awkward because 2/3 of the body is facing the side and it's just the chest facing us. Super unnatural.

The background is really nice though? What the heck? Did she actually draw that because it's super good.

No. 412497

I vote for the background being traced kek

No. 412528

Why is her animation always so fast?? Does she animate by 1s?

No. 412532

The background looks good because even Holly understands how basic 1-point perspective works and because she overloaded it with detail. The objects in the background are sloppily drawn as fuck, and most of them don't even look like solid objects. The sheer amount of objects keeps your eye from focusing on any one of them and noticing how fucked up and lazy they look.

The arms on this frame are driving me crazy, they look so broken and out of perspective.

Uhhhh I don't want to seem like I'm defending her but…hers wasn't actually the worst. And actually, quite a few of the animations on there are similar to hers in execution and skill. Same awkward and out of place animation that's timed poorly.
But I chock it up to probably really young animators that are starting out, so Holly with her supposed "animation studies" should have stood out heavily among the younger ones.

That's what pisses me off. If you don't enjoy the process of animating and you just make excuses for your laziness, then don't do it? It's not that hard. But oh, Holly has to be perfect in eeeeeevery art field ever imagined. It wasn't her lack of skill or care, naw it's because she didn't have the time awwww poor baby can't meet deadlines when there are passionate animators that go above and beyond to make their work good - regardless of how much time it takes.
Fuck you Holly.

No. 413063

I hate to support Holly but she's not wrong? I mean it's great to try and put 100% into everything you make but sometimes it is better to just say 'screw it' and just finish a piece and aim to do better next time. There is a lot wrong with Holly's animation but at least it is finished. Now if Holly actually focused on fixing the stuff she had trouble with when making this animation on her next one she really would improve but unfortunately I doubt she will do that.

No. 413065

You have a point. However, that would be different if she was actually putting 100% in the beginning and was burnt out toward the end. Because she didn't do it at all through the process and sludged through, complaining, it shows that you don't enjoy the work and you aren't going to create something actually good? Not sure if that's true but, the animators that won seem to really enjoy the process, so their entries had more character.

No. 413078

I actually agree with Holly. As someone who draws comics, you have to accept imperfections so you can actually finish your shit and produce new works, and trying to make something perfect will stifle room to experiment. The true test is what she learns from the flaws and mistakes and if she can learn how to fix them in her next one.

No. 413082


I agree with both of you and Holly, however, saying shit like "whatever I just wanted to finish it" is unprofessional and also sounds like an excuse for a piss job. Saying something like "I tried it and it didn't turn out as I was expecting, but it's an experience for future projects" or w/e, it would come off as less lazy.

You're 100% correct about the telling sign of an artist being full of themselves. Whining every time they get critiqued or tough loved, then trying to guilt you or make you pity them because you were cruel enough to give them critique. A lot of artists are dumb enough to take critiques as personal attacks. They'll never make it that way because in the industry, art directors and other artists are going to critique you a lot. Whining like a little bitch about it is only going to get the artist fewer jobs and a bad reputation.

She can't take critique at all. Sometimes you can tell when an artist is never gonna make it.

Not only that but if you say that excuse in the industry, you'll be out of a job. They aren't very lenient when it comes to half-assing.

No. 413691

Yeah, I think it's a bit of both. Like comics is more an industry for making stories independently. Competition is rough and you only do it because you love it. As for illustration I've had an equally hard time getting involved with it in any major way. Animation I have no experience with…

But if she's seriously looking for an easy in to an art career she should just consider the design path. The market is large and tech people actually pay. At least that's been my experience.

Like with most of Holly’s “character design” it’s never a solid design that carries from one drawing to another. It’s pretty floaty and unappealing. HC is trying to push emotion with out knowing how a face works or how to make something fun to look at.

Now, I really smell bullshit on this "PS HAS ONION SKINNING I NEVER KNEWWW", I bet she actually look up animation guides on youtube, realized she was doing it all wrong, pretended she knew it all along and came with the bullshit excuse that what she actually didn't know was that PS had onion skinning.

No. 414362

True, unless you're incredibly famous or loaded enough to turn down jobs, you will never only design what you like, be it illustration or graphic design (I worked in both).

Most clients want something that looks like the most popular app/website/style at the moment. You can only take so much liberty, it really depends on the client and trust me they have godawful ideas at times.

I don't even see a niche where her weird drawing style would fit, definitely not kid stuff or magazines illustrations and those two are what illustrators end up doing cause there's a pretty high demand.

No. 414410

I agree with both points. However, the only reason it even remotely looks better is because of the crutches she's leaning on. It makes animation easier.
The timing is better due to the fact that she's using audio, Jazza's challenge only mentioned a few details on what the rhythm was. By using audio it's so much easier to find timing because you have the time of the file as reference - just draw the face around the moving mouth and act it out, it's not too hard.
I want to see her try and animate another full body without dialogue to help, there inlies if she truly learned from her mistakes.
I call bs on her not knowing about the onion skin tool. If someone really took animation they would know what onion skins are - and me personally with that knowledge would research if my main program has that. OR ya know, lower the opacity of the layer below and the layer above. That's technically onion skinning though it is a tad more tedious.
So either she's bullshitting that she didn't know or she's bullshitting that she took animation classes, either one is bullshit.

No. 414450

You called it. She admitted it was traced from a photo she took in her new vlog.

Also looks like Holly is going to do mostly animations from now on. I wonder how this will affect her fanbase. I know a good amount of people follow her because they want to make a webcomic or they are mostly interested in starting up a online store/selling art. Then again the standards for the youtube animation community are kinda low. Holly will probably end up gaining a few fans if she does the stupid animation memes and continues making animatics for popular musicals.

No. 414486

I agree. She's done paper drawn animation(hopefully I assume on a light box), so wouldn't she wonder if there's a thing where you could see the before and after with different opacity levels??? Holly trying to look talented for lying about not using onion skin rofl

Isn't that something you should avoid?
I mean, self inserts just mean you lack originality so much that you have to just use yourself as a character to fill in some cast quota. It's not something to be proud of.
Sure, character designers put an aspect of themselves or take inspiration from other people when making characters – but they only put one aspect in there, not their entire persona.
Saying one of the characters is a self insert is basically saying that they were too lazy to create one from scratch.

Holly, queen of hypocrisy. In her new vlog sometime around 13:00-13:40 she says she doesn't want to have to rush her comics for a weekly deadline.

I saw a conversation with some person and Holly about Flash and tv paint and had a question. How come she doesn't use/consider toon boom harmony to animate rather than photoshop. It's what most most people in the industry use anyway.

I dunno. My first animation class was all traditional and most people didn't learn what onion skinning was until animation 2 when we started digital and even after then–most of them would just use the actual opacity on layers. No clue how her class worked though.

No. 414991

I think if Holly could get over the "I don't want to do work for anyone but myself" attitude, she could do well as a colorist for others' projects. Most aspects of her art are pretty bad, but she has a good eye for color.

So artists don't know much about compositions besides directors for movies. OK

No. 415248

That's not what she said exactly. People with a background in film do often have better composition skills than your average artist. Heck even amateur photographers are better at composition than most artists. A lot of artists just try to avoid working on composition. They are just so used to drawing disembodied heads and random character designs in their sketchbook that they never really work on learning how composition actually works or on how to actually frame their pieces.

Again she is going into Animation for the wrong reasons- like oh because it's better money then comics. Like dude no one goes into the art industry because they want to be rich, you do it because you love making art,the starving artist stereotype is quite real.

i used to watch hollys stuff back when she was at like 1k followers and honestly she was much nicer. she wasnt exactly nice but she was better lol one of the only things i liked about her was the way she packaged her prints she put sick wax seals on the letter .
really took the time to package stuff and always sent free things with her orders

No. 423264

lol i remember she had that board where she would print out fanart people sent her of those two twinks in her comic and like a day after she announced she was doing that her next vlog was like complaining about how it was getting too full and she would only be putting the finished looking art on it
came off as kinda rude

you guys got any art holly made that you didnt absolutely despise? i kinda liked this minus that girls head. thought the colors looked cool.even the video at the 2min mark(?) when she swaps to filming with the iphone 7 looked good too. nice and clean why doesnt she try filming shit like this now

No. 424500

All the expensive equipment is so annoying too because there's this thing called "buying used." You could test out an old version of a tablet (or lets say a cintiq that someone dicked around with for a month and covered in shitty stickers) for a fraction of the cost.

I get buying new equipment, don't get me wrong. But if you're constantly trying out different things searching for one you like, used is a way smarter way to experiment.

Also, when you live at home with your mom $6000 isn't a big savings. As soon as you move out hidden costs and emergencies will eat it up quick (especially with unstable income). Stop wasting it on shit you don't need.

The new car thing drives me crazier than the new tech holy shit…

And when she's like "The bigger ipad was only $10 more. Yeah! $10 more/month. Wtf, that's basic math. I'm a math retard and I get that shit. And if you're swindled by that I can't wait to see what the car dealership convinces her to buy. Watch her think new cars are sooo muuuuch cheaper because she shops by monthly payment, never adds it up and forgets about interest costs.

No. 424502

why does she think shes qualified to make this kind of tutorial when shes a beginner?

So she can draw sitting on the couch as well.
Honestly just stay at you desk, it's bad for your back anyway to hunch over a tablet.

No. 424512

Imo a reasonable amount of savings is at least 6 months living expenses. I don't know how expensive it is to live in Texas, but I bet it's more than 1000 a month.

Final result is pretty unappealing to me, it doesn't wiggle enough and it's not smooth. She's struggling to explain things properly, it's clear she just needed to work in the sponsorship somehow.

On the bright sight, this is probably the least off-putting Damien has ever looked.

I can't. I can't watch this anymore. I KNEW she was going to reference Ed, Edd n' Eddy I KNEW it.
Hey Holly, this "wiggle" animation you think you've "invented" – it's not a new thing. The wiggle you see isn't intentional and it isn't for that effect, it's literally just to show movement in a static picture because it makes things look more organic! Fuck this bitch is stupid.
Animators do this constantly because literally NO ONE can make every single fucking line perfect every time they do another frame. Yes they DO onion skin it, they don't do your barbaric "keep drawing over the sketch" shit because your lines will deviate from whatever you've done no matter how steady your linework is. If you look closely in ABSOLUTELY ANY ANIMATION EVER, you can see the fine differences in linework whenever a character moves. The only reason you can see it primarily in Ed, Edd n' Eddy is because the lineart is very sketchy and uneven as it is – and so it makes it almost impossibly to retrace the lines exactly.
Please do NOT try to teach animation when you so clearly have no idea what you are talking about, thank you.

As for Holly saying her style is too 'anime', the only real similarities I see between Holly's art and Japanese Animation are the shortcuts they both use (ie defining characters by superfluous things such as hair styles rather than actually taking the time and effort into creating a good character design) Unfortunately Japanese Animation as an actual reason they do this (it saves them money) whereas Holly is just being lazy.

I've heard her mention hamletmachine (is that the artist who made that shitty yaoi comic series?) once before in her old video. I can she's influenced by her in a way.

Someone post that fanart she did of that one Starfighter character where she gave him that massive fucking chin. If she was really trying to "copy" Hamlet machine's style, she sure as hell didn't do a good job at it.

Nevermind, I found it in the previous thread.

How she could even look at this with a straight face is beyond me.

What's up with newfags and art cow's threads? It's getting real cringy.

Also, she already knows about her thread. She didn't sperg at all, she just said she was going to ignore it and that is what she's been doing so far. Read the older threads before saying how "wowees it would be so milky!" cause it shows how new you are.

Agree anon
if you post expired milk then at least sage it
>newfags in art cow threads
Well I mean they’re probably just kids who found the threads on google, it’s not too hard to find when it’s the one of the first result for Holly

Scoured the other thread with a few keywords and couldn't find mention of that. Nor do I remember much from when I read the whole thread a few months ago.
Care to share a few pointers, like linking the post or some words that could be used to find that particular post?

Scaring them away how exactly? There's a reason there's not a lot of animators online, well a few reasons actually.

1) Ever since YouTube changed their ad algorithm to give you money based on how long people have watched instead of views, most of the good animators stopped using that platform because it wasn't profitable since anything 10 minutes and over would take absolute MONTHS to complete. Sometimes even a year depending on how many people are on a team.
2) The animators are probably working more now on projects and with contracts rather than generating free content. Some animators went the easy route and just started gaming or podcasting because animation didn't generate enough income.
3) Their videos may now be subscriber based on Patreon, so you'd have to be a patron in order to view whatever videos they create. And this is totally okay, why? Because now they're getting the financial support they NEED to make animations.

YouTube has been killing animators ever since they introduced the new system. THAT is why you don't see them much anymore. YouTube is now in favor of gaming streams and vlogging streams, a lot of animators on YouTube know this. Why do you think nowadays "animation" on the platform are those static images that move sometimes with the mouth fully animated? (i.e. JaidenAnimations, TheOdds1Out, etc.) Because it takes so much less time and care to "animate" this way. Plus you can meet the over 10 minute quota fairly easy to get your ad revenue.

Animators are not SCARED, Holly. They're just being put into a corner by minuscule funding because guess what – animation doesn't pay the bills. The only time I can see it paying said bills is if you're working at somewhere like DreamWorks or Disney, ya know, professional places. But even then you're working grueling hours trying to finish projects.

I really hate when she starts trying to talk generally about animators like she is one. She doesn't know the first thing about what being an animator is like. Animators have thick skins from years of critique – they aren't going to be "scared away" by a few online comments on their YouTube video, that's nothing to them in comparison to how scary the bigwigs that hold their contract are.

A word for Holly,
Don't you DARE put words in the mouths of others when you don't know and don't care to actually RESEARCH things.

Another word for Holly,
Fuck you.

I second this. I've been following these threads for a while and read through all of them thoroughly – I don't remember ever seeing evidence of her finding these threads at all.

You can change the word "animators" to pretty much everything she talks about, she has the habit of shitting out of her mouth about subjects she doesn't know about.
She sounds and acts like a 14 yo.
