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. Also known for giving shitty advice to impressionable beginners.


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

>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

Last thread: Holly continues to make crappy animations, says she'll give up comics because she can't make a living off them and to focus solely on animation then decides she will make comics still. Makes merch for a comic she's only finished a few pages of. Hires someone to flat her comics for pennies on the dollar. Denies she's a fujo with a fetish for gay bois then admits she's a fujo in a recent video. Still drawing potato face.

For someone who shows a lot of her hand a lot in videos, those are some crusty ass nails. And I dont get why she's making these stickers the hard way. She makes so much work for herself and then claims how tired she is and how much work Holly did.

No. 481683

If you're too lazy to maintain your nails just fucking cut them. I'd hate to buy any of her merch with the knowledge that her crusty hands touched them

No. 481765

I find it ironic how when it comes to useless manual labor Holly refuses to take the easy way out but when it comes to actually making art she cuts corners all the time in the most lazy and obvious of ways. Honestly if Holly took the time she wasted on things like manually cutting stickers and actually applied it to learning art theory she really would improve.

No. 481768

Also lol how can she have her legs straight in a booth? Is she standing through the seat?

No. 481786

Although it's not in the picture, those tables have 4 legs. The way she drew the them, people would have to step over the seat to get into the booth. It's a health and safety hazard, not to mention that tables in booths like that always have a center leg only. Google is one click away, holly.

It’s totally the muscles guyssssss!
See? Even this guy is malfor— oh wait no he’s a normal dude. My bad. Guess it’s not like buff men can’t “pose”.
Honestly she gets on my nerves so much. The only way somebody couldn’t be able to act normally is if they’re HUGE and I mean really huge. The mass would be in the way for certain things. But her chara looks “defined” more than muscular, at least not the way she’s implying with that statement.
Also saying “I used the mannequin” is stupid. First of all she never understands what she sees. Second, a mannequin might help you with the spaces, but muscles, fat and skin CAN move. Some muscles rotate, other flex, it’s not a stable mass. If she paid attention in her gestures she would have noticed that.

No. 481838

Those pose mannequins are useless anyway exactly because the muscles don't move. Your torso changes shape completely if you move around. She should know this by now.

No. 481857

Point is: she thinks just because she produces a lot she’s getting better and she’s a good artist. It’s true that you need to produce a lot but you should study and examine what you’re doing while producing. She thinks she’s beyond the study phase probably, because she’s so pro. Quantity over quality should be allowed only during deadlines and when you’ve reached a certain level.
Makes me laugh that she thinks 4 hours for a full comic page is a lot of time. 4 hours could only be the colouring. Well thought comics can take like 6/8 hours per page excluding colours.
Focusing on how many pages you produce instead of taking your time to figure out what you’re doing is one of the big no nos if you plan on actually learning something.
Without study she will just keep on repeating the same mistakes.

Saged because probably nobody cares

No. 482068

No I think the points you brought up are noteworthy. What bothers me is that she has a lot of influence on teens/young adults who are either interested in art classes or are in pursuit of an art career. Her superiority complex over how she produces a lot of work (sloppy, ugly work tbh) will more than likely influences her audience to repeat her methods because they think it will bring them success. Idk, as someone who once watch Holly and was dumb enough to start mimicking her I just wanted to say that.

Where is his other leg?!

No. 482103

TBH i sometimes wish I had her confidence (or pretended confidence, if you want) because it seems like it’s everything that ever counts. How can somebody be blinded and follow advices of somebody who’s so bad at art? Fake confidence. Other Peppe (and myself) just struggle getting taken seriously or don’t have much exposure because they tend to stay humble. Never heard khan being overly confident for instance, and she has way less subs than holly.

No. 482163

I think her exaggerated confidence is just a defense mechanism because she can't handle criticism very well. Of course it only hurts her because her art ends up looking like this >>482089

No. 482189

Yes and no.
I mean, you can use confidence as a defense mechanism and still try to better yourself. Like, show others you already know how to do stuff even when you don't, but keep practicing until what you create is actually pleasant. You know what I mean?
If I'd be as unsure and hurt by criticism I would probably work more and not give people any kind of "opening" to talk shit about me. She is faking confidence (although I must admit that I sometimes think she fakes being fragile or knowing her things are shit rather than the opposite) but if she never EVER improves it means that she might BELIEVE her own lie.
Some things could be fixed easily, like the table legs for instance. Another anon pointed it out that in diners like that tables only have one leg in the center. Do a stupid 10 minute research on google, or use logic.
She bitches about how correct it is to trace and then she doesn't do it for the right things. She doesn't even use references properly.
I don't know if I should feel sympathy for her, because as I said it sometimes seems fragile even when she's being bitchy, while other times she is humble and self deprecating but I sense like she's doing it to fish for comments.

lol She still hasn't even tried using it for anything. She could've even made the pencil pouches she failed at with it. The iron on adhesive they sell that you can print on is really durable shit. Could've even used it to make stick on stencils and those die cut bookmarks she was creaming her pants over. I do artist alley as a career so thats why i followed her, but she really just scrambles around with no real plan. She has a ton of conventions in her area and she doesn't even try. Why? Cause shes a cringy basement dweller that is scared of other people offline. She boasts that she is so much better than other artists cause she's SOooo resourceful but in reality just wastes money on things that help with the business and then never use it.
She got the cricut machine about a year ago. More like 11 months. I've had mine since last april. It's the bees knees.
Hers is just sitting there on the floor unused. It cost $200. Doubt her mom uses it like she says with it up in the garbage heap.

Like myself (also a full time illustrator struggling with money sometimes) I honestly think she doesn't want to do it cause it's that fear of the fact that you're failing at what you want to do.
I however am 27 and worked retail for 10 years before I went full time illustrator. I don't think she has ever worked a part time job? at least not in her time on youtube.
She's young and stupid and has a spending addiction.

No. 482999

At one point she was boasting about how much money she had in the bank, ($10,000 I think). Notice how I said "had". There comes a point where you just can't feel sympathy for a person anymore. If she really cared about her future she wouldn't have wasted it all. She goes around like she's desperate for money but then refuses to do anything that isn't in her ugly OC bubble. Watch her guilt trip her audience to buy her barely even stared paranormal plague merch. Smh.

It drives me absolutely INSANE! I can understand the iMac since her laptop was shitting itself and the small cintiq cause she wanted to invest in better materials, but she just ended up selling the cintiq anyways as well as called it shit? It was small. If you aren't already used to working small like that it kinda sucks? I was using a Graphire 4 before I upgraded to a Cintiq 22HD and the working area on the Graphire 4 was maybe 3x4inches? Cry me a river.

I found another artist who reminded me of Holly Brown called "Semi Imes" Y'know swearing and all that but without all the nastiness and opinionated high horse bs. It showed me that Holly is just a very bitter and lonely person. Also I thinks it's interesting how you compare her to Logan Paul, I would have never have thought of that but it's so true. I wouldn't be surprised if she came out with a Christmas animatic song this year titled 'buy my Paranormal plague merch' like how Jake Paul did for his merch last year. "Buy my merch, but my merch, all I want for Christmas is my P.P merch, go and tell Ya momma she gotta buy its all!!!1!".

No. 483144


I can tell you that I have a couple of these and it's not a big deal. I think she saw some videos from the planner community that she likes to rag on, thought "I'm gonna get this expensive thing" and went ahead and got it just to show off. but the paper is actually nothing special and the leather cover is unnecessary for drawing. It's a nice-to-have thing but I think the fact that A) yes it's a japanese brand and B) she splurged money on a thing she's not going to end up using and now has to turn around and shill for more money is like the name of her game by now.

C) fun fact it's not even an midori/travelers company notebook she has so.

if she's not gonna use it she should sell it.
She should sell all the junk she's not using but she's one of those people who hoards and likes to say she has things, and when someone tries to help her it's probably "Oh I was gonna use that"

Yes because the problem is just disk space, right?! It’s not ram or limitations in virtual memory.
600dpi is WAY too much. In french comic the common resolution is 450, because they are a4 size and they need more details. She is just doing a crappy work that’s going to be printed really small. 300 is the minimum for printing but it’s also the COMMON for comic stuff. Of course if you need to print something really huge you work with higher dpi or same dpi but different size.
The way she works is so messy, and she loses so much time doing useless things… and why for god’s sake does she do flats all on one layer?!
It’s truly a shitty flat work but for what she’s willing to pay and without any directions given I think that’s exactly what she deserves. I am trying so hard to push play again because this is seriously challenging for me to watch.

Maybe you could get someone better it you paid them more, but that's just too wild of a concept I guess.

Publicly shitting on her flatter just seems so unprofessional, if I was that guy I would quit immediatly (though I wouldn't have started working for her to begin with). If she has a problem with his work, why not tell him in private? Why even hire someone who doesn't fulfill her requirements regarding dpi, as I understand she had shit tons of people "spamming" her inbox with offers to work for her? And it's not like any of this was even necessary for her video, she could have shown her coloring process just fine without bragging about how much better she is than the guy doing the dirty work for her.

I hate the way she shades, it's like 1 step up from pillow shading. Like, what is that shading on Herschel and her obsession with him being buff, like, the way she shaded him made him look less defined and more flat.

off topic, but what is pillow shading?

No. 484164


it's when your shading has no defined light source, or is RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE of the drawing and the shading is like a globule of an undefined mess.

Holly here seems to be doing it but in reverse, she seems obsessed with like, back shadowing things w/gradient so I wouldn't call it pillow shading exactly but it's still a pretty undefined mess of a job.

She should have “built” light into her cheekbone and maybe add some cast shadow at the side of the nose

Also, she says in the vid (I haven't refreshed since it got taken down so I'm watching it now) that 'my color work has always been really strong', and yet she uses some sort of piss/lemonade yellow and mixes it with a burnt/blood red for shading??? And she has the gall to say colorblind people just can't use color lmao.
And then right after that she says 'well, if you're not good at colors then you should be good at lines', which Holly is so shit at despite doing it digitally which should make it easy as fuck to just use the smooth line tools in ps.

Herschel's last name is something hispanic, I think it was Sanchez or something. Anyway, he could be born/raised in the U.S and still have the name Herschel.. there's nothing wrong with an ethnic character having a non-ethnic first name.

and I really don't get this "her characters look white" thing. Holly draws bad cartoony shit, they all have the same dot-eyes and line mouths, how does anyone realistically expect her to make characters in her shitty style look a certain ethnic? she's not that good.

Thank you for reuploading this. Holly was a lot tamer than I thought she would be on this. Honestly though I don't know what Holly expected when she is paying so little. Also, if Holly wanted a professional flatter, she probably shouldn't have hired one from her fan-base of literal 13-year-olds.

I should clarify that my problem with it isn't anything to do with Holly 'pandering' (which I don't think she's doing), it's literally like you said: her style is so stupid simple that she can't possibly make anyone look like they're supposed to. Literally, Herschel is just Simon's dad with a fucked up nose and weird hair.
The only reason I brought up his race at all tbh was because, in her recent vid, she colored him basically grey, like he was fucking dead, and I had no idea what she was thinking she was doing. Idgaf if she makes hispanic or black or whatever characters, but she needs to realize her character design and color choice is too shit to actually do the things she's trying to do, and I wish she would realize that for once and get better at it. Her 'style' is crippling her.

No. 485099

I'm rolling my eyes so hard right now. She's not going to stick with it. as a board artist myself, I can tell you right now it's VERY heavy work. It's not really "easier" than animation, and like anon said, it's practically animation nowadays. She's probably just doing to try and milk the musical audience, They're pretty easy to attract.

I think if she wants to take storyboarding seriously, she's going to have to stick to comics to get an understanding of perspective because she has NONE.

Saying she’s a comic artist is a stretch.
If she can be considred a comic artist because she shits out some poorly done pages, then she can easily be considered animator/storyboard artist if she does half hassled crap.

I agree with you exactly on this point. Claiming to be a professional when she's not can be harmful to said community as a whole, especially when she's not in a position of authority to be spouting off 'tips' she picked up from other sources, or out of her own ass that she figures are shortcuts.

She doesn't act like a working professional and her work ethic doesn't reflect that, either. She needs to realize that it's okay to say you're just a thing without saying you're a professional…

And nobody said she had to be a ray of sunshine, but she really does need to fix her attitude and humble herself a little because she's always wondering why she's got so many people 'hating' on her. She's way past the point of being excused for shitty, condescending behavior.

This video was kinda sad. I don't think Holly is as arrogant as she tries to portray herself as being. She just seems really socially awkward and pretty unconfident in herself as a person.

Holly's been through, and is going through a lot, but she's still got a lot of growing up to do before she can call herself professional at anything, and I'm not even relegating that to just a technical standpoint, but from an overall one.

She can't keep approaching situations and treating people (herself included) the way that she does. It isn't sustainable.

No. 486833

She admits she was wrong, and said she'd be more careful ablut what she says in the voiceover, it's an okay response imo.

I think people are being harder on her in this thread than usual lol, it was shitty but she's trying to take responsibility at least. Like >>486712 said, she's clearly very insecure and a terrible communicator, but tries to pretend otherwise.

Honestly I don't get this new trend of making your characters look "unique" with weird ass anatomy. There is really nothing visually pleasing about her character's expressions.

Making your characters look unique is not a "trend", it's a basic skill to learn. She's just not good at it.

No. 487179

I agree for the most part. Maybe I'm too sympathetic because she clearly needs mental help. Being trapped physically and mentally can really make a person bitter. But that doesn't mean it's remotely ok, obviously she has to take just as much responsibility for her actions as anyone else.

I've noticed while watching her videos she will start criticizing seemingly random things that she doesn't do, unprompted. I don't follow her thought process on that. But she harps on and on about it (like the coloring thing). But then when it comes to something she does wrong or less efficiently (such as everything on one layer, because "keeping track is hard" or whatever), she quickly spits out a flimsy excuse and moves on. I don't understand why she brings it up at all at that point but it shows she's self-aware somewhat yet then it all vanishes back under all her outward bitterness.

She's really a sadcow for me more than anything but it's a bit fascinating.

I think what Holly needs most is a typesetter. Or at least someone that can go over her dialogue. It always comes across as unnatural/awkward and Holly herself has admitted she always misspells shit

No. 487571

I agree with you 100% anon. Holly is a sad, sad person, but definitely because of a lot of things like being trapped at home and having no irl friends. Honestly, her shit art doesn't make me enraged as much as it makes me sad because I can't see her changing because of the lifestyle she lives.

The thing that DOES piss me off tho is how she uses her youtube platform to basically destroy little kid's self esteem by being pessimistic about art, and also spreading lies about art techniques that would ruin a new artist. I can't help but put myself in their shoes and think of how godawful Holly makes art sound, and imagine that I would've stopped because of that stupid shit. Holly is a rare breed of lolcow that you feel sorry for, but also vehemently loathe at the same time.

Holly couldn't make her panels fit. The odd panel is the middle one, it is just one dude with no background and no text. To make more sense the first three should have been layered on top of each other, then the last two could have been the stop of a new page. But she wanted to clutter her page with nonsense and try to do something like pic related.

there just isn't enough going on in this page that excuses this, even the first two panels could have been combined too one panel. There are 5 different ways she coulda made them fit

I know this has been said a million times, but those goddamn glasses, every fucking time.

Apparently Holly fucked up on these pages aspect ratio and is going to have to redo 10 pages of her comic. Holly’s workflow just sucks. It’s always 1 step forward and 4 steps back for Holly.

I am seriously baffled at how she wrote "necessary" it's not that hard to Google a word if you're unsure of its spelling ??

No. 489860

I can’t stress this enough: she’s a native English speaker.
She’s supposed to know her own language. All of the people she bitched about were probably shattered all over the world and some of them spoke English as a second or third language. Still she has to complain without knowing if somebody is struggling to speak HER language to get in touch with HER or has simply problems misspelling or grammar wise.

No. 489870


Yeah she really has no right to complain. It's very inconsiderate of her if folks are at least trying to communicate with her, but then half the time her thoughts written down are incoherent, incomplete or just badly composed.
Some folks can be so out of touch with the way they come off, but sometimes I think because Holly hates criticism, she'd rather be blissfully unaware or would rather just not care.

Which is sad because all she needs to do is just get better. She has every opportunity, going to school (albeit online, but still, she can email or skype her professors for advice), tons of fans to give her criticism (including us), and lots of money to go buy supplies. All she has to do is try.
I went thru the same thing when I was a kid, seeing my friends get better while I sucked, but you know what, Holly? Being a bitter bitch about it doesn't do anything for you, it doesn't make the better artists worse than you. It makes you an idiot because you're not improving.
She could be so good, but she CHOOSES to be angry and it's really reductive and sad.

I’m so mad.
She’s like I’m all passionate about comics I read comics I draw comics
Didn’t she just read like two mangas and half a webcomic?! How dares she decide what’s a comic and what’s not.
I’ve always done full story hourly comics and I love story driven comics, but there’s absolutely NOTHING WRONG in the kind of comics she despises.
Most of them are done by people who work full time in animation or comics and still want to promote the event doing simple hourly sketches of their daily life. SO WHAT. Just because it’s not entertaining for YOU it doesn’t mean it’s not a fucking comic.
She denies the existence of one panel Comics, of comic strips with no continuity, and pretty much everything that’s not what SHE does.
Just because you’re lucky enough to be able to draw all day your stuff doesn’t mean that everybody can produce 24 full pages in a day. People work, have families, that’s why it’s simpler to just make updates about your day especially when your followers might want to know what you do for a living.

I did the hourly something like five or six times. Every time it was a story comic. We used to sit in circle and do it with professionals and students and amateurs (basically we had meeting points for this challenge but I remember it being called differently) and everybody did something different and unique. And I never got offended if somebody put less effort than me or if they didn’t have plot or if they were just doing a story about looking for ideas for a story. The point of this day is to make people draw and talk about comic, it’s supposed to be funny. Thank you for killing this for all of us. Of course you know better.

Also can we discuss the fact anytime she gets upset her first turn to is saying that she gives up and will draw porn for money for now on. Like wtf is up with that? Is she making digs at people who draw porn for money? They usually have better art than her. I just don’t understand

No. 491130


I believe it was either this video or maybe the previous one, but Holly said that that the last time she talked to someone that wasn't a family member, internet/Youtube 'friend' was 3 years ago. I'm guessing she meant an actual conversation with someone and not pleasantries with a cashier/random person. How sad.

No. 491131

So I guess that means she quit the 100 day challenge, then.


She absolutely will not be making any money from porn art, if her nsfw drawings are any indication of that.
Or maybe she will. The audience for porn may surprise us. Especially when it's targeted to fujoshi…

It's a bad move either way because the majority of the following she accumulated is like teenagers, so, like. I wouldn't if I was her.

No. 491135

i think the joke for holly is that drawing porn is easy money, which like… sure… if you draw porn commissions of peoples' ocs, or ships or whatever, it's easy money? but like, she's made it pretty clear that she ~totes doesn't care what people want~ and will ~go her own way~, which isn't gonna get that dosh rolling in. idk, she's dumb as fuck business-wise. maybe this sanitization (cough) of her brand will be good for her.

No. 491138

Yeah, she WISHES she could draw porn for a living.
Fun fact: tons of well known comic artists started out with a side job as porn artists, often under cover because they didn’t want to be recognised. But yes sure let’s talk shit about a whole genre of comics, like porn is a bad thing or easier to draw.
The most damaging part of her art is her head. I wish she could find some sort of inner stability.

No. 491143

Judging by Holly's quality of art and the porn we've already seen her draw, I doubt she'd make much money off of it.

No. 491147

Yeah I didn’t think she would actually do it. It just irks me that anytime she “gives up” she States right after that she’ll start drawing porn.

Fuck I doubt even fujoshis would find her art appealing when it comes to porn. I don’t think she sold many of her NSFW comic.

It may be easy money but from the way she talks about doing commissions she’ll never actually do it.

Let’s hope so anon

Kek. I agree. Also I didn’t know that about artists in the community thanks for sharing that’s a pretty interesting tid-bit

How did this bitch get over 200k subs when she doesn’t even know what the hell shes doing. Is this why she attends online school to get away from in person critiques or any that is?

As a past avid reader for yaoi, her drawings are very unappealing. None of them look attractive and the story is shit. Has she even read yaoi before? I might’ve missed the info. She makes boku no pico have a better plot line and it’s literally all porn. Tbh for me, if the story is boring/too slow or if it’s all just characters banging each other and nothing else, it gets boring. Sage cuz no one probably cares about my pref lol

If that’s really the case then she should learn how to properly speak. She’s not being blunt, she’s being offensive and explained why everything is the way she says it is. When called out, she deleted everything. How is that expressing an opinion?
You can say “your jacket is so ugly it’s insulting my eyes” and be blunt but if you say “you fucker what did you have in mind buying that ugly jacket? It’s as cheap as your ass, for god’s sake if you intend of buying a jacket buy the brand I wear. ‘Cause everything else is shit and so are you” … well that’s an insult

Why is saying a type of comic is shit not insulting, and saying you don’t agree explaining your reasons it’s insulting to the point of deleting the videos?
Also yes she insulted people by saying they are lazy and don’t want to commit and that they are ignorant because they don’t know the things she does. She didn’t insult directly but the insult is still there.

No. 491199

she straight up called people's comics and the way they went about them shitty. And even in the video she went out of her way to say "I'm not going to put up other people's comics here, BUT…"

She thinks she has some sort of domain over comics just because she has one published and wants to lord how much "work" she's clocked in over other people.

She's so worried about other people having fun because she's bitter she isn't. But she had to make an entire 16 minute video to justify why she hated them and bend over backwards looking for reasons the challenge was dumb.

All she had to do was say that it wasn't her thing and keep doing all that "hard work" on her own shit she claims to do. All she had to do was stay in her lane.

>get criticism over (insulting) opinion

if you wanna be the person that's blunt and "offensive" you gotta be able to take the criticism that comes with that. You can't expect to say shit like that and have no one react. Not everyone's going to kiss your ass.

how can she lack so much self-awareness?

i was kind of warming up to her lately because it seemed like she was owning up to her mistakes, but this just ruined it all.

No. 491215

Holly wants to be able to have her cake and eat it too. She wants to be able to shit on people and also expect people to give her asspats and praise for being 'so honest'.

She's got no tact, and can't hold a civil conversation with people without her shooting her mouth off, and I think the reason for that is she's in her own head a lot. Her interacting with other actual artists that aren't her watchers/followers is lacking and it shows.

You never see her supporting any other artists or shouting anyone out or helping anyone (Those dubious tutorial videos do not count). All you ever see is her berating herself and shitting on others.

I don’t know what it is about newer artists who feel they need to follow the “influencers” (used very loosely) who have the loudest and rudest voices.

Holly does not give “tough love” or anything even remotely called criticism; she voices her opinions in the nastiest way possible and people listen to her because they think she’s “just speaking her mind,” “speaking her truth,” or fighting the status quo.

Holly is bitter and depressed from drawing 12hrs a day locked up in her room. She needs to step back from herself and take care of her mental health.

No. 491273

They wouldn't have added much, anyway. It just seemed as if Monique was on her own and I wanted to back her up, one of Holly's fans even told her to fuck off. Very fitting fanbase.

Maybe because it's 'edgy'? Holly does post very regularly, which a lot of art channels don't. But other than that I really don't understand why people like her and Bailey have a large following. I guess it's hard to tell what's genuine/good advice when you're young or just starting out.

No. 491275

It's a never ending cycle of kids who grow out of Holly's shit and on to better/positive artists like RossDraws, Sinix, Proko, etc and then the new younger ones will attach to her and so on so forth.

It's so good when the bully plays the victim, don't you think? Gee it's infuriating how she manipulate reality just to get attention.
She should have had the decency of at least deleting the videos. But of course not. It was just a prank!
GOT YOU SCARED, HUH? Don't call out my bs anymore otherwise I will do it for real next time!

That's not only that, you know. I know people who are locked in house and draw for the same amount of time if not more (depending on the deadline) and they don't feel the need to shit on other people.
She obvs need to take care of herself in many ways, but the things she REALLY needs are a reality check and growing a pair.

yeah that's a mystery. Somebody theorized she has a huge following because kids see thi "adult" being rude and unrespectful and think it's cool and the right way to act so they are justified to pursue bad behaviours.

No. 491281

It's probably cuz they both have an audience who are mostly beginner artists or similar level to them.

lmfao is she dissing Baylee. Also, you'd think a hardcore person like Holly wouldn't let this affect her, but try to make herself a better person by learning from mistakes.

Is she… crying?

I can't even tell if I'm feeling more angry than sorry for her tbh… She obv wasn't mentally ready to put herself out there, it's well-known that every semi-famous person accumulates at least some hate and gossip around them. You have to grow a pair if you want to have a big online presence.

Of course we know that this "hate" in her case is more like being called out on repeatedly being an asshole. Internet isn't your personal hugbox, Holly, deal with it. Being rude isn't an "opinion".

She's acting very immature. It infuriates me that she aspires to be a professional artist, but throws tantrums over and over again. And I'm actualy a bit worried for her well-being at this point, she sounds and acts like she's seriously depressed and lost in life.

like I've said before, I've never really seen or known her to help another artist out (tutorials dont count), shout fellow artists out that she likes or attempt to interact in a polite manner with anyone. it's sad, but only she can make those steps to becoming more than who she is right now. she has to want it, and it seems like she doesnt.

Is she deleting comments? I scrolled through them a bit and only saw extremely positive comments gushing about how sorry they are. I found one comment telling her she needs a thicker skin and lo and behold she had responded to it about 30 minutes ago! Naturally she snapped at the person. That was the only comment I saw that wasn't ridiculously sweet, and considering how recently sure had responded to it, it seemed quite possible she is screening/deleting comments.
To me, it sounded like she had just been crying and was still sniffing.

I don't want to see her doing this. She's so isolated and that almost certainly has influenced her attitude and lack of tact, and why she is constantly having to put her foot in her mouth. She needs to realize that negativity only breeds further negativity, including berating herself. She has to deliberately make a concerted effort to better herself in order to see improvements in how people perceive her.

I really worry about her being so depressed and only further isolating herself. I hope she gets help, even someone to talk to who isn't necessarily a therapist. Her over sharing is common with people who don't get enough social interaction.

It just worries me a lot to see someone so clearly depressed doing rash/drastic things. Not a wk, just a fellow depressed person. She's entertaining to cringe watch but I hope she gets even a little better mentally.

sorry for rambling a bit

No. 491533

The best thing for her to do at this point (and what I would do if I were her), would be to quit the internet for like a year, grind some fundies, change her terrible style, and come back under a new name.
That way she'll be better at art and learn from her mistakes and not be rude to people. Of course then she couldn't do voice-overs anymore. But I guess that's the price you pay for completely ruining your reputation.

This is a kind of rant you put up on your personal blog or bring up in convo with friends, not the one to upload on the huge channel that can potentially make or break your career.

The thing about the comments really shows that she should consider taking a break. You're right, she just digs through the giant stacks of positive ones without paying attention to them, looking for the even slightly negative ones to reply to. I don't know if it's a common practice in the youtube community, but it seems like an unhealthy thing to do in her situation, even more so lurking here (pretty sure the remarks on people calling her racist and homophobic are in regards to her threads?)

She sounded like she was about to cry in her new video. I feel a bit bad that it has come to this, but she kinda brought it upon herself.

Holly is one of those people who pride themselves on being "Blunt" and "brutally honest", but in reality they just want to lash out and bitch and crumble and cry about "call out culture" and "PC culture" when people stand up to them. People don't like to be insulted and told that what they do or like is stupid, childish, or not "good enough" by some unqualified rando's standards. Instead of trying to be more aware she chose to abandon her channel so she can just keep doing whatever she wants.

"Fake Positivity" this is such bullshit, because positivity is a choice. At least when I was in therapy that's what I gleaned. Forcing yourself to be positive really changes your outlook on the world. Sort of like in CBT where you have to change the way you perceive everything as negative because it's unhealthy and will fucking wreck you.

Also, maybe some other art you tubers are just positive people?

This is such bullshit honestly all it is is her being harsh and "blunt" and not being able to deal with others doing the same back. If anyone is a hypocrite it's her she says she can't say shit because of PC culture but then gets butthurt because people are hurting her feelings? Lolk

If you put your face into it maybe yes some could be doing it to look better in the eyes of holly and the readers but again what’s the point? We’re not playing pity challenge here, she has to stop thinking her life is the only one messed up.

I'm not really sure where she's even getting that whole "people call me racist and homophobic and I can't say anything anymore because muh PC culture" thing from?

I mean, I do remember some anons claimed she's a "homophobe" in the previous (?) thread but there were plenty of others who disagreed with them, so even "hate forums" like this don't give her that much shit for being "non-PC", it's mostly just about her general rudeness.

She doesn’t understand that no one is blaming her because she’s opening commissions, but it IS bad and sad when you talk shit about what people want to be drawn. Who would want to buy from somebody who’s making fun of you or totally hates your OCs? I know work is work and I doubt somebody genuinely loves doing commissions if not for the money, but some opinions are better off unsaid.
It’s not the commenters who ruin her business, it’s her attitude and the way she can’t be bothered to tone down arguments.

I like how now that she’s getting negative feedback she exclaims “Stop guys you’re hurting my business reeeeeee!” Excuse me? Holly your face and name is your fucking brand and the shit you spew from your mouth is what is impacting your sales and business. Everyone who fucking disagrees with you takes it up in your comment section or on your Twitter.

Also how are people not supposed to worry about your mental health? The second someone respectfully called you out on your bullshit you up and delete all your videos how the fuck is she not supposed to worry about your state of mind?

Everyone who has disagreed with you has stated you can have your opinion they just want you to state it PROFESSIONALLY. You know the thing you state you are. This woman blows my fucking mind.

No. 491764

It's weird that I discovered her a few years ago (but didn't subscribe since her style isn't really my taste) after seeing some of her Rendr Sketchbooks, and seeing her now… it actually feels kinda sad tbh.

It's weird that she claims to have a blunt and take no shit personality but at the same time she's being a dick to other people. Like the thing with her flatter. She did admit her mistake of not providing colors but she had to cross the line by shitting on him in the video.

Also the fact that she draws 12 hours a day iirc is both good and bad for her. Good because she seemed like she had a good work ethic but judging from her process she didn't work smarter. Bad because I know a lot of people who get affected by this (a friend of mine only had one meal for a week since she needed to finish her work for a studio) and I kinda hoped Holly would interact more with irl ppl.

>I like how now that she’s getting negative feedback she exclaims “Stop guys you’re hurting my business reeeeeee!” Excuse me? Holly your face and name is your fucking brand and the shit you spew from your mouth is what is impacting your sales and business.

She needs another job. 12 hours a day should be a much better artist, and she obviously is constantly pissed off by the whole thing. She loves comics, just do art as a hobby not a job and you will learn to love it again.

Plus, quit with the attitude, delete and block all the negative people and start a new channel/new content. There's plenty of grumpy youtube artists but it is not a healthy path, especially if what is posted above is true and she is not talking to anyone except family and net folk.

Agreed it doesn’t matter what her political views are if she wants to be a professional artist she claims to be she needs to shut up and focus on her work. Trying to pull punches in every directions is what is causing all the ire from everyone around her.

I also don't understand why she is making so much merch for a comic that only has three pages. Most of the characters haven't been introduced yet and we don't know anything about them, why would I care about merch?

I know that she makes them for money, but it would be wiser to spend more time on the comic first or make more general merch/new ones for her old comic.

But yeah, it's clear how old her fanbase is and I'm still surprised how badly she handled the whole situation.

In other news, she opened up her commissions and surprisingly doesn't allow them to be nsfw. Her prices are fair, I think.

No doubt. I can kind of see her needing to do refunds honestly. I kind of have this bad feeling about her doing commissions and I don't know why.

But that's exactly the point being proven here, if she's gonna act like a bitch, I wouldn't hire her. The fact that she got a lot of commissions makes me uneasy, more for the client than her.

Sincerely, good luck to her, but I doubt it's going to last.

No. 492081

I dunno, clients can be pretty picky when it comes to commissions. If she runs into someone who's very particular about the way they want their piece (and she will), she's gonna have a hard time taking that critique.

Did anyone else realize that she had spelling errors on her commissions post. "potentally" "Whicher" She even spelled commissions wrong, "Commsions" I know artists don't really like it when people say their commission prices are too high, but come on. Holly's art is way below sub-par with terrible hands, long chins, bad proportions and anatomy, bad perspective, her art isn't worth all that. She probably saw some artist who actually has GOOD art and thought, HMMM if they charge that much, then so can I. The same thought process she had when she decided to pay her flatter pocket change.

No. 492088

She wants to come across as professional but doesn’t want to take the time to write scripts for her videos?

All a script would do is help her articulate her thoughts, instead of just spouting whatever shit comes into her head. She wouldn’t need to “censor” her opinions, she’d just be able to explain them better.

I don't think Holly understands the appeal of traditional art. Watched some of her videos of her scanning in inked drawings and coloring them
She removed the fine paper texture and made all of the black areas completely flat, with no slight brushstrokes showing through.
Kinda defeats the purpose of working traditionally, in my opinion. my main gripe with digital art (and especially Holly's) is that it feels so lifeless. It's too clean, and yet she makes it so sloppy.

Oh well, might just be my opinion. But I feel as a "professional" she'd have an eye for style.

I hope you're joking, because a - not true, and b - Holly seems pretty far from having fun most of the time anyway. She does say it to mean professional in a traditional sense, as in her career.

No. 492111

Duno, I think a big part of the reason why Holly's art is bad is because it's too lifeless. Her traditional work doesn't seem to have the same problem. Well, it does, but to a lesser extent. I would think she'd notice the difference and try to emulate her traditional work digitally.

I would say she's benefit from using a slightly textured brush pen, or even just adding some noise to her art. Her art currently is not crisp, clean, or focused enough to get away with the unforgiving digital hardbrush. I feel you have to have a deep understanding of line weight and quality to benefit from using it.

I think you misunderstood the last part. I think Holly thinks that anyone having fun drawing is not a professional. She complains so much about other artists, mainly because they do whimsical, pointless, or "baby" art while she is creating "real" art.

It is common for some artists to think the more you suffer drawing, the more professional you are. Apparently she revises her work way too many times and frequently throws her drawings away. I think she's bitter af at her skill and output level, and is irritated at other artists who just draw for fun.

No. 492117

I'm going to be honest, I used to like her. I didn't really closely follow what she did but I enjoyed watching a video every now and then. The fact that she wasn't super "positive" appealed to me because I enjoy people who don't hold back on cursing and sometimes being blunt (but by that I don't mean putting other people down for no reason other than their own bitterness). Tbh I never enjoyed her art by itself but I mean most big YT artist aren't really proper artists in my eyes, more like entertainers that happen to focus their vids on drawing. But hey, she seemed hard-working even if her art is not really professional level and I can respect someone who works hard (I would never in a million years buy her products at the level they are now tho. Would much rather spend that money on artists like Loish). I was wondering what all the drama was about when I saw that last video of her complaining over the hate so I searched for the deleted video and found it here (thanks btw). Among other things. And wow … I never realised how rude this chick was to people, even in replies to her fans. And esp that stream clip .. what the hell. This opened my eyes. Also made me realise she made a huge mistake by addressing the drama and deciding to make a big deal because now people like me who didn't fully see her bad side are finding it out of curiousity. So you kind of screwed yourself over, Holly. I hope she gets help because she's clearly struggling with issues and going full on defensive/deflect mode.

Yeah she said she aged the characters up to draw them in porn. The only difference to Simon being older is that his hair is longer.

She had a whole debacle about whether she should/shouldn’t draw porn of them because they’re kids in the comic. Eventually she made sketches and even a mock cover if I remember correctly? With Damien and Simon older together. Damien having short hair and Simon with longer hair.

No. 492193

Okay what would we commission and who would actually place the commission

No. 492196

Yeah it was something like that. There was no plot kek. She wanted to just draw porn. The bare bones of a story is the guy naked is sick and human so they’re looked up to like royalty? And the alien dude fucking him is his bodyguard??? That takes care of him and was assigned to him or something.

Also that whole comic has no real borders. It all looks like shit.

No. 492201


A sonic OC, lmfao.

No. 492208

At the end of this, is she claiming she'd be more mentally sound if she wasn't being criticized? That's such a shitty thing to say as she's effectively saying "You all made me do this." I've yet to see a single person actually wishing for this, before or after she did it. Also note how many of her sentences contain the words shit or fuck. So professional. It's definitely the haters ruining her image, though!!! /s
Also I feel that those of us (myself included) who battle depression and have tried to move forward can very clearly and easily see how she surrounds herself with self-destructive behavior and thoughts, because many of us have been there to varying degrees.
I really feel that the isolation is the worst thing for her. 12 hours a day drawing means so little time for anything else, for breaks, for enjoying other interests/hobbies, for socializing…
Her voice always sounds like she's 100% miserable. That is not healthy or normal and that is a good reason for people, even ~mentally healthy~ people, to start seeing at least a few red flags.
Also as others said, how dare she shit on people worrying about her mental health when she's basically shown off cutting marks in the past? She could at least show some appreciation for people caring, but she can't even bring herself to see it as such. Ffs.

And the comment deletion just makes me hate her all over again. Why fucking make a video like that and then delete any comment that isn't positive, even neutral comments? She shouts how little she cares while constantly proving how much she DOES. But she is so blind to how to turn around any of these situations or impressions. She needs to stop. Not meaning suicide as some anons unfortunately suggested, but she legit needs to CHANGE. ANYTHING.
Sadcow who could be less sad but won't making me sperg over here.

Also I too would never hire someone with that kind of attitude toward art for others. inb4 she stops accepting commissions and/or talks shit about them again.

This bashing of people caring/worrying about her reminds me of Lainey when people were initially sympathetic toward her and how she flat out mocked them on video with Onion instead. But Holly doesn't even have any sort of companion. Girl really needs a friend (that she spends TIME WITH) goddamn.
God I hate people who type like this.
This is a good analogy. The same approach applies to her life and socializing.
This please

No. 492219

She never made the comic, she legit gave up halfway through making it for no reason (I think she mentioned something like 'I can't sell this, so I'm not going to make it'). Hopefully it was just her being sensible for once and realizing nobody wanted to see aged up porn of her OCs.

When Holly started the Purgatory comic, wasn't she in middle school, or high school?
She was a baby, and she still is. Purgatory was never solid either. I don't know if people are trying to imply that Holly is a pedophile or something, but…
I just don't think that is the case.
I think by the time she decided she wanted to draw porn of her OCs she was just trying to pander, and she was already tired of Purgatory. As far as the revamp of her characters go, if there really isn't much of a difference I'd sooner believe it was due to a lack of skill or pure laziness before I'd suspect anything else.
They look like a generic age for a generic comic.
I've seen tons of artists who just say their characters are 18, while still drawing them with the anatomy of children and depicting them with the personalities of children.. and I don't think that is the case with Holly.
But I do think she needs to just ditch Purgatory regardless. She's only hurting herself by trying to finish something that I'm not even convinced has an end anyway.

No. 492291


Nah, she ain't one of those. She's not sick like that, she's just pandering, honestly.

Purgatory is kind of a drag though, and I agree that she needs to really reconsider what she's doing with the comic long term. I remember her saying she wanted to do a volume 2 sometime in the future, but she's got so many projects pulling her in different directions.

No. 492294

Sigh, he's holding him like a fucking piece of paper in the second one.

I never understood how Holly became so popular with shit art and shit attitude. Some mistakes are just so basic it reeks of someone who never tries to properly study bodies and rely on memories.

That person is entirely right. Getting along with people in the studio is plain essential, and studios are usually closely linked together.
It's incredible how she aknowledge that people talking shit about her is harming her brand but can't link her bad attitude to the backlash, even when people explain it in a very simple manner. Incredible.
I'm pretty sure that she's so bad at interacting with people because she never gets out of her house and socialize.

No. 492299

Yeah what's really annoying is all the random projects she comes up with for herself and then her being overworked and complaining like? Take a break bitch you're self employed no one can fire you. I think it adds a lot to her bitterness

No. 492303

she just needs a life outside of art, it's like it's become her whole personality which is ironic because I'm pretty sure she's warned against letting art become all that you are

No. 492313

No I was not trying to imply that when I brought up her aging up her characters. I was bringing it up because I thought it was stupid, tacky, and brought no purpose to her work. Another anon pointed out she never even really went through with the porn comic because she realized it wouldn’t make her money. She spent a ton of time on it and a ton of time flip/flopping on whether she would ever do it.

To me it shows she has no fucking direction with her work. It’s constantly been like this. First purgatory she got bored went to paranormal, stopped that to start animatics and hated that so she went to try full animating, found it was hard and jumped to storyboarding, hated it and now has gone back to paranormal and animatics.

No. 492342

Sorry, I worded it poorly. They were visible. People saw them. Stills of them have been posted in these threads.
I'm saying that it's fairly common knowledge because of that, so it's especially shitty to shit all over people who dare state concern for her mental wellbeing. I hope this was more clear from the rest of my post.
I didn't mean she was literally showing off/flaunting them, and it wasn't some personal attack against self harmers in general as I've even fallen into that category in the past. Calm down.
I'm saying she's clearly struggled at least in the past, and the proof is visible/tangible. So it's not unreasonable for people to worry about how she's doing or if she's struggling with anything. She's the one being unreasonable toward people who express concern.

Her depression likely never went away, just potentially how she handles it. Obviously neither way is handling it very well. But no I am not shitting on her for her cuts. It's just more evidence justifying people's very warranted concerns.
Agreed, I don't think it would be good to commission her. She can lie in the bed she made for herself, anyway.
Though a small part of me would like to see a comic about her improving her life, kek

No. 492351

We’re in total agreement anon. Yeah I think you might have worded your post a bit off that it could definitely be taken the wrong way.

Honestly, Holly impulsively deleting all her videos and announcing that she's "SO DONE, GOING TO LEAVE MY DUDES", then deleting that video too just screams depressive episode.

A lot of areas seem to be unshaded completely, and it doesn't seem to just be stylistic. Like the entire back of the chair - the rest of the chair is shaded. Her calves are another example; the shoes are shaded, the knees are shaded, and that makes the calves look completely flat.
Also the hands and face. Again, neck is shaded, so… confusing.

It seems like she gave up half or 3/4 of the way through.
I don't really like nitpicking art to such extents but someone paid for this, so.
And yeah it's still better than most of what she draws. Probably because the character isn't designed by someone who tends to portray humans as half alien or something.


i feel u

Also so much love to reupload anon(s). Holly is truly a "delete fucking everything" cow now.

I think they're supposed to be unlisted but in a playlist now, which defeats the purpose pretty much. Unless she took them down for reals after that.
I wish she'd just fucking own her behavior if she's never going to learn from her mistakes or change. Being a blunt bitch and then being a coward afterwards takes a lot of the punch out of it. I do believe she sometimes doesn't realize how she's coming off, but it's happened so much that you'd think she'd try to self-monitor even a little. People would be so much less irate at her fuckups if she'd give a sincere apology and MAYBE even talk about how she'll work to be better going forward.

Her argument is essentially that "everybody is going to have 4K monitors in the future" so your files need to be basically clean enough to look nice at higher resolutions (aka, you can post 100 dpi or less on instagram because people see it on their phones, but 100 dpi or less looks like shit on a monitor).
I can kinda understand what she's trying to get at, but nobody is going to fucking zoom in on a digital art piece far enough to notice the difference between 300 dpi and 600 dpi, no matter their monitor. It should only be a thing for people who want to print shit out at large sizes (like I print my art at 18x24, so high dpi is important, not just making the file the size it'll be printed at).
The problem with it is Holly shits out work that's only supposed to be printed BELOW 9x11, so there's no fucking point and it just wastes space on her computer for no fucking reason.

No. 493248


Okay so that claim of Holly's is actually complete bs.

DPI is a measurement for print. For screens, the industry standard is to work with 72 dpi at all times and instead adjust the width and height in terms of "how many pixels high/wide is this image", because screens work in pixels.

For print, you're usually fine with 350-400 DPI so long as you keep an eye on the format of your file in inch or cm. Anything upwards of 400 DPI gets difficult for an eye to discern anyways.

Normally, you only crank the DPI way up when you're scanning a traditional piece, to make the digital copy crisp enough to, for example, print it as a bigger format than it was drawn as. With that technique you could create a completely beautiful and crisp poster from a hand drawn business card if you wanted to, provided you crank up the DPI high enough while scanning.

tl;dr: Holly is talking out of her ass there, high DPI have no connection to depiction on screens, and past 400 DPI not for print either. They're only important when scaling up works with digital means.

22 minutes into that damn livestream and I'm disgusted.
Her shitty art is mind boggling, yelling back at her mom, fussing about feeding a cat, bitching that her mom said the starving cat was looking for her so it can just starve.
On top of that her ambiguously brown man is so hot everyone wants to fuck him, she apparently had a dream they were having sex and it was awesome.
She is beyond cringe in so many ways it's hard to keep track and believe it all comes from one person.

72 dpi is a bit outdated actually and a bit arbitrary. Also its ppi if you're talking about web, and it really doesn't matter when setting up a webfile. Resolution really only matters if you want to print.

The fact that Holly doesn't know this… it's just… ug…

If you want a file that looks nice when you zoom on it just make it larger. Seriously, instead of making a 72ppi image make a 1ppi image and you'll see what I mean.

Dpi really only matters for printers and scanners. And more doesn't mean better. If you work large and about 300-450dpi you should be fine. If you are concerned talk to your printer and see what the specs of their machines are.

Also Holly posts purgatory in jpegs which triggers me. It's stark B&W png is the way to go.

Come on guys, be real. The flatter is not “a lot better”, you’re deceived by their preferred style which looks “more pro” when non paying attention/zooming in.
Their best stuff is obviously copied and even then the stuff is kinda wonky. The things they make from their head is even more accurate and shows bad proportions.
She should have given a shout out but it was not necessary. Even in the real industry there are helpers that are never credited, it depends on a series of factors.

I personally find Holly lazier than ever after finding out she has a color flatter for a comic that barely has a chapter out. She is so focused on getting her shitty line art and wonky panels on a page instead of flatting her own work. I get she doesn't know shit about digital, but come on.

I agree, any dummy can color within the lines. However his style is already better than Holly's and she claims to be such a ~.:professional:.~
Purgatory will never be finished. She keeps "fixing" the same pages over and over. I guess in a weird way that is her purgatory. Working on a bad comic that will never be finished.

Or if anyone has pics of the original artwork, could you share that too? I keep looking at this and >>482504 and honestly the old art had a lot more personality in it.

This has to be one of the most poignant things said about her and her situation/projects I've heard so far, anon, LOL.

Side note but I hate the way she overuses the god damn gradient tool for shading. No wonder she can't mix colors, she's not learning how to do it properly…!

But then she calls the fill tool cheating.


No. 493637

Yeah. It has the kind of charm that Jhonen Vasquez and Tim Burton established themselves with, a stylish wonkiness. Much stronger silhouettes and compositions, very dynamic poses and expressions. Admittedly it is kind of cluttered and the red can be very intrusive, but it's not like those two things were stuff she actually fixed with the later version (in some newer pages she actually used big red blocks of background).

So when I first saw the video my jaw dropped. There is so much goodness in that old style.

I don't undertstand what happened … the draft of her comic looks so much better than the shit now?? The draft had so much more life in it and was waaay more dynamic. The version now looks lifeless and stiff. Sure her anatomy was still wonky but because the characters looked more cartoonish it was easier to forgive. I also like the addition of red and different shading approach (y'know actual shading and not just the black and white flats, it shows that she doesn't do digital as much as traditional because her digital inking is pretty bad).

And that's not even mentioning her Halloween/Inktober Collab a while back. Where she yawned constantly during the voiceover, mangled the name of her collaborator (mentioning that she didn't know how it was pronounced but not caring to just ask her collab partner), dissing his line art and even changing it because "it was wrong" without asking (upon which he could have told her that the "mistakes" were actually intentional uncanny-valley elements) and bitching and moaning the entire time about how little she likes collabs and how much it apparently sucked to work on this one.

She has long since deleted that video afaik but geeze. Her collab partner was a super sweet younger (iirc) artist whose entire collab half was basically gushing about her even though she prepared her linework in a way that barely gave his otherwise really beautiful coloring work room to shine. Poor guy was so dejected after that, even though he dealt with it very graciously. I'm still fuming when I think about this.

But yeah, it's like she is physically incapable of bringing up other artists without being respectless to them.

I'm shocked to see the lack of maturity being displayed here. This behavior is something that would be seen in a public school from children that were not taught the most basic principles of acceptable social behavior. In other words, this is clearly a forum dedicated to bullying a single person. Obviously not everyone on here is a child with poor social skills, (which I would still expect better behavior from,) so how is it that people here have the time to spend hours stalking someone on the internet just looking for something to be nasty about. Most of Holly's comments are generalized and of her own personal opinion, which are not being forced upon or directed towards any of you specifically. If you do not enjoy her videos and it upsets you to this extent then simply do not watch them. It is perfectly fine to disagree with a statement and everyone has their own beliefs, which should be used to start an interesting conversation or simply be noted and not extended upon, but this hateful behavior is not okay. Instead of trying to tear someone down because they do not make art to your personal standards or have a contrasting opinion to yours, use your time making yourself the best you can be. If anyone here has an ounce of empathy and wants to better themselves then learn from this and apologize to Holly. Or at the very least just try to think of things differently in the future. It’s like getting your art critiqued for the first time, it hurts, but once you stop taking things so personally then it helps you improve your art. Being able to look into differing opinions more objectively does the same. Instead of being offended by someone’s opinion try to consider the new information and perhaps it will even change your own views, or not, which is also fine, but it is important to respect and treat others as human beings with feelings, even if they are across the world or on a computer screen.(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)

Oh my god, everything you said can and should be said to Holly herself. She does not just have a different opinion and is expressing it; she is using her platform to say that how others do art is WRONG and she is RIGHT about everything she does. She publically shames other artists for doing innocent things with their own art and has a nasty attitude about doing things the “right” way because she is so “passionate” about her craft.

She herself cannot take valid and constructive criticism and when she is faced with negative reactions, her solution is to ragequit and blame others for their response to her “blunt and honest (read: totally spiteful)” way of speaking.

She is influencing others that being jaded, cynical, and nasty towards others and their art is just ~being honest~ when she needs to take a long hard look at herself if she really wants to be seen as a professional in any kind of art industry.

If you need specifics, I recommend watching her recently deleted video regarding hourly comics, where she basically calls people’s work drivel and shitty because they do not follow what her ideas of comics are. If you truly DO care about seeing our side (which I highly doubt) maybe that is a good place to start.

Holly has a platform, she has fans and people who look up to her. She uses those videos to talk shit about other artists’ practices, techniques, and skills with a holier than thou attitude. She is looking to be a professional in this industry, to work for companies and with colleagues but she doesn’t act like an adult.

Telling people to just ignore her stuff when she is actively crapping on her peers is ridiculous when Holly doesn’t follow that idea either! When she doesn’t like something, she makes a 20min video on it being hateful then can’t handle when people call her out for it.

Did you really just compare Holly to a two-year old, kek

No. 494013

Can't be Holly, not enough spelling and grammatical errors

No. 494017

Okay wow… I used to blindly respect Holly based on only few things about her.(the things she wanted people to see) And I got very upset (like little baby not knowing how to handle emotions-upset) over the fact that she is getting "hate". But now that I chose to calm the fuck down and actually look at her more objectively and do some research like for example looking at the actual proof of things she legit has done and said (most of this stuff being the things that Holly has already deleted long ago, not giving me a chance to find out about it) I feel so embarrassed now. Because now no matter how much I appreciate certain aspects of her as an artist,(like her working hard etc.) I can no longer unsee her legitimate faults. She indeed has problems and is at least partly if not fully responsible for all of this negative feedback. I'm no longer surprised of how people have reacted and I even find the "hate" to be justified to some regard! I still feel bad for her because I personally wouldn't want even my worst enemies to be experiencing the amount of negative attention that she is going through right now, even if it's her own fault because sure she's been a bitch but she isn't a monster. But yeah I can no longer defend her and respect her the way I did. Because I didn't know shit. Just comes to show that you should never idolise another person too much because it can blind your judgement. It blinded my judgement. Damn. Sorry for the ramble but yeah Holly Brown isn't who I thought she was, and even though this thread annoyed me at first, now I must admit I'm kinda thankful that it exist because it allowed me to know the details and reasons behind this situation and learn from it.

No. 494034

besides her whining about non existent issues everyone apparently has with her,
those "caricatures"… what has Anno ever done to her? i had no idea that was who it was mean to be until she said and tbf it looks like 4 different people? also how instead of learning how to exaggerate characteristics she plans to just use warp tool on an image and trace that like how fucking lazy!

No. 494037

She’s defeating the purpose of the assignment

No. 494039

Because she always uses shortcuts instead of actually learning something? It's almost like she thinks mindless repetition is hard work instead of actually doing the thinking required to better your art.

No. 494043

Which is funny because then she always does the things the hardest and stupidest way. When it comes to things boring but actually useful, she just looks for shortcuts

No. 494070

Her hands are floating above her lap, left arm looks disjointed, lackluster shading on hair and right arm, weird folds on skirt, right leg looks shorter than the left

She has potential but her anatomy always fails.

No. 494084

Don't feel too bad. A lot of people on this thread used to be "fans" of Holly. Personally I used to watch all her videos as soon as they came out. I think for me what made me realize that she was maybe more then just "brutally honest" was when she said in a (now deleted) vlog that you shouldn't send her fanart if it looks bad.

No. 494096

She said that???? Damn… I'd probably cry of happiness if someone drew fan art of my characters, even if it was just a stick figure.

No. 494099

Holy shit, I had no idea she said that, what a fucking asshole. Like the other anon said, I'd be happy about any kind of fanart for my characters, even if it's shitty, because it still means someone cared enough about your work to draw it.

If I was one of Holly's fan, I'd actually be scared to draw her fanart after that. There's no way to know what is "good" enough for her.

No. 494100

She retweeted fanarts lately so maybe she changed her mind or she picked out the best?

No. 494133

Welcome. Don't beat yourself up over it, you're not the only one who didn't know about all this stuff. It's hard to keep up when she deletes it all the time.

For me this happened when she was talking about making merch or whatever. She sounded unsure and was doing it for the first time, so people in comments gave her advice and ideas. The next vlog basically started along the lines of "I'm not stupid lol I know what I'm doing idk lol you all think I'm incapable of doing this simple shit shame on you". Not the exact words, but the overall message and tone was like "fuck off u plebs I know everything". What a way to treat your fans who saw you struggle and wanted to help a bit.
Her fanart ramble sounds so ungrateful. She says that the art community is full of meanies, but is doing the opposite of being a good member herself. She has the power to influence. It's so powerful for the beginner artists to be noticed by their fav. Just a simple like on a fanart can literally make a month of some young kid's life and motivate them to heavens. I'm sure lots of people itt get sent badly drawn pics of their OCs, but we all can agree that it's a wonderful experience when someone likes what you do so much, regardless of their skill.

No. 494137

So, I checked my subscriptions and I see that an artist I follow made a video about the Holly drama.
He doesn't say her name, but it's about her.

I didn't realize Holly was "big" in the YT art community. I assumed her only followers were teenage fujoshi, but I guess a lot of other youtubers are aware of the drama.

It's debatable, but I think that any art youtuber above 100k subs can be considered big, so no surprize here. I wonder if anyone else will speak up, though one should be very brave to do that at a risk of getting swarmed by her fanbase.

No. 494178

How did Holly get so popular? Was it just luck, the right timing, YT algorithms? Her art is really mediocre, probably the worst out of all the YT artist I've been exposed to.

No. 494184

I think it was the anatomy video she made and the same face syndrome video. Both of which are cancerous.

No. 494188

Basically, not to mention her Calarts rant also got quite a bit of attention

No. 494190

I was following her since she was in her 10-15k subs. She exploded with "the same face syndrome" and "the anatomy mistakes young artists make" vids, basically she went from 15k to almost 100k really, really fast because she hit a gold mine with those. Can't say the exact time it took her, but there were a lot of people in the comments going "What happened? You had 20k less subs last time I checked!"

No. 494192

She has over 200k, Most art YouTubers probably at least know her name. Baylee is one of the biggest art channels and she's still under 1M subs.

She may be relevant but she claimed that she popularized talking art videos which is just such a ridiculous claim to make lmao, girl. It's not that novel of a concept.

She made some controversial videos that blew up, like her calarts rant, and some art advice videos that followed.

No. 494193

Weird, did she delete those? They're not on her channel anymore.
If I were her, I wouldn't have taken down my cash cows.

No. 494197

She unlisted them together with a bunch of other videos, both are still in her "old videos" playlist

No. 494200

She definitely had a lot of good luck and timing there because she was making extremely frequent and fairly long videos when YouTube's algorithm began favoring watchtime and frequent uploads. Combine this with the fact that she made some tutorials, which are often long-ish videos that people actually actively seek out and watch all the way through, and you have a useful watchtime-generator and fresh viewers who will definitely check out more on your channel to see if you've got more helpful stuff there.

No. 494202

She also rode off Baylee Jae's Art Block controversy with a response video. That's how I found her. While it didn't get as much attention, it still got some.

No. 494204

That's how I found her too. Looking back, she really didn't frame the argument well, it was mostly just her cussing.

No. 494217

True. Also, however sad it might sound, her personality attributed to this. She really stands out amongst sugary-positive videos, so her attitude naturally attracted some subs. If only she knew it's possible to be opinionated and honest without being a total asshole.

I actually think that if she socialized better, she might've pulled it off. The upbringing plays a role as well, but it's possible to learn to be polite and blunt at the same time, one just needs certain skills to voice their opinions on controversial topics without trashing anyone in particular. She gives off a vibe of a person that is just oblivious on how her words are percieved, thus the deleting sprees when people point out she fucked up again. It actually explains why she thinks she gets hate for the opinions themselves and not for how she shits on everyone while voicing them, she just doesn't seem to understand how social interactions work.

No. 494230

>she just doesn't seem to understand how social interactions work

This, if she just got off the internet once and awhile (IRL friends would probably help her too) I think she'd be able to deal with this a little better.
I recall in her early vlogs that she would try to go outside and ride her bike(to exercise I think?) I wish she'd at least do that again so she's not in cooped up in her room all day, but I imagine its difficult to do because shitty Texas weather.

No. 494236

Making friends isn't that easy tho. I agree she would most likely benefit from that but finding like-minded people could be a challenge. And someone who could also tolerate her bs to correct it (I know I wouldn't be able to)

No. 494250

can't be worse than anything else she does so heh

No. 494276

I found her thru that calarts rant, and from the get-go thought she was a major butt. I mean, I'm not gonna sit here and lie and say I didn't subscribe because I thought her videos were funny, and, she was approaching topics so differently, because, I did derive some measure of enjoyment from it. But the more I listened to her the more bitter and insecure she seemed to sound…

And I'm not usually one to judge who I think should be popular on youtube or not because it's mostly anyone's game, but I honestly don't think she should've been any kind of voice for the art community, much less the more impressionable, younger demographic, but they think she's so cool.

I get the feeling she's someone they hopefully grow out of in favor of better uses of their time and resources, but there's always going to be that audience that think being edgy and an asshole is cool and can be misconstrued as honesty…And, to an extent, I get it.

But you can only get but so old before the novelty of rebellion and having 'no filter' stops working for you and you have to actually start growing up, if you don't want to keep backpedaling every 1 or 2 videos after you put your foot in your mouth.

She could benefit from TONS of videos that help with things like social skills, interaction and networking and apply those tips. She needs to broaden her scope outside of her own view and do something else besides be bitter and sit at her desk all day.

I apologize for the long post.

No. 494280

Not saying this as a meme, I genuinely think she's on the spectrum. Based on things she's said about that herself it seems kind of likely. She can't grasp the nuance of what she's saying, even people who impulsively say shitty things are able to get some perspective, but she just seems to not understand at all.

No. 494288

To add, some posts from the last thread about this:

No. 494289

Seconded. And not getting any human interaction to learn to at least know social tact from experience isn't helping her. It's not an excuse but could be a helpful framework to better grasp how not to be unnecessarily rude to everyone.

No. 494295

No, it's definitely not an excuse, but if she was aware of it it might lessen her knee-jerk reaction of "people got mad at me for thing, so I just won't say that thing anymore because I did nothing wrong!". The last few days were so fucking frustrating because people were still mostly polite in the comments explaining the issue to her with her flatter, and just got increasingly pissed off as she kept making the exact same mistake over and over again.

No. 494296

Yeah, I do youtube shit and I'm on the spectrum. I just get my boyfriend to watch my videos and edit out anything autistic and rude. Just because a behaviour is explained doesn't mean it's excused.

No. 494300

Forgot to sage, but I'm also wondering if she's bipolar it feels like she cycles through manic and depressive episodes. Either way this girl needs to see someone and human interaction. I can believe she hasn't gone out with friends in three fucking years.

No. 494305

I mean, how would she even make any friends in her area? She's always at home, doesn't attend a campus or any events, and hardly ever mentions anyone on social media in a positive way.

No. 494315

Yeah, I've wondered this too. However, the degree of isolation she puts herself through can also affect a person's ability to socialize. Though the two could be going hand-in-hand with her. I can't help but wonder how she was before tumblr culture which sort of promotes the whole "introverted shut in" behavior, which includes mental illness as well as behaving mentally ill (or more ill than someone already would). I was involved in that sort of culture years ago, as I'm passionate about psychology and mental health, and it was legit very damaging.

OT but this is kind of really adorable and your boyfriend is awesome for helping you in this way.

She always seems depressed to me, but I guess staying up all night drawing comics and redrawing is fairly manic.

No. 494336

I don't think tumblr can turn anyone into a shut-in if they weren't prone to that already. Being an introvert is definitely more "cool" nowadays than it used to be, but I think she definitely is one. From my personal experience being isolated for a significant amount of time will really affect your social skills face to face, but it's not like she ever stopped speaking to people for months since she's always online.

No. 494346

Nah I never meant to imply that it makes someone an introvert if they're an extrovert or whatever.
>it's not like she ever stopped speaking to people for months since she's always online
This doesn't mean she's actually socializing and relating with others or feeling involved/accepted (and vice versa). It seems all her current closest interactions are just out of "necessity" (like her flatter, commissions, etc).

I just wonder how she used to act maybe a decade ago or whenever she was in highschool. I'm sure she wasn't some charming popular kid, but she had to have been better than this.

No. 494355

I'm beginning to suspect she's in genuine denial on some level or another, that there's not anything wrong with being a shut in. Like, she knows she's got issues, but she doesn't seem to want to take the small steps to alleviate what seems to snowball into bigger issues, and every time someone reaches out to her she snaps at them. It's sad.

You know. this board seems to cycle between "jfc what a bitch" to "hm, gee this is sorta pitiful" every other week, lol.

Doesn't help that she still probably lurks here, even though she said she wouldn't. She would benefit from unplugging for at least a week or a weekend, even.

Or take a weekend or day off from art to learn some social skills. Plenty of resources for that. She needs to just help herself along a little, and I think she thinks it's a sign of weakness if she asks for help from anyone else about this particular topic.

She slashed up her wrists and was routinely suicidal(she admitted that in one of her deleted vlogs)
So no, not really. To her, how she is now is an improvement, which I guess is true to a degree.

But honestly it just makes me think Holly's biggest issue is that she never dealt with any of her problems when she was younger. Just because she's not actively hurting herself anymore dosen't mean she's not just as self-destructive, y'know?
If that's the case, girl needs some help before it gets worse.

So. Not to get too personal, but I've watched Holly's videos at a time when I was too anxious to function. At first I enjoyed them, not for her art, but for her personality, as I always liked the snarky type of youtuber. However, reading past threads and her recent behavior kinda shaded some pretty bad light on her. Long story short, I really do not want to end up like her. I think because of recent events, I'm planning to pursue help with social functions, because wow am I appalled with what seclusion does to you, especially to an artist like Holly. I know artist are usually introverted, but this is just too much

I do cling on hope that Holly will get better, but I doubt it.

>As an artist any bullshit claim harms your business

How does she not realize that her poor attitude/how she handles things can also harm her business
Also she's just feeding the flames, if she's "done with drama" why reply to a video that's about said drama.
This is baby shit drama that most people would forget in like 3 days, and this reply is not helping her

The doxxing/death threats bit is a bit much tho, I have no idea who would want to do that to her. Like, this thread isn't fond of her but that shit is unnecessary

"I can totally take criticism, let me just go on this angry rant about you criticizing me even though you have no business criticizing me in the first place!"

…okay then.

>comics should tell a story- short and simple.

And I'm pretty sure that person was telling you a "story" can just as well be "this is how I spent my day". It might be a boring one but that still doesn't mean you get to decide a comic "isn't a comic" just because its plot wasn't exciting enough for you. By that logic Purgatory isn't a comic either since nothing fucking happens for the first 150 pages or so.

>yes I'm deleting some comments. Cause again I'm done with drama.

Except she was deleting every comment that was even remotely critical of her. I guess everything that isn't pure ass kissing counts as "drama" now?

Anyway at this rate, i really am just convinced that something really is wrong with Holly. Or that she's just young and stupid. isn't she only like 20? a dumb shitty kid, really.

No. 494866

Holly fucked her brand from the get go when she put her real name on it when she knows she has a shit attitude. Good lucK getting your foot in the door now when there is a permanent record of your shitty behaviour online regardless of if you rebrand even bc it's already under your real name.

Holly pls, didn't you promise yourself not to lurk here anymore?

No. 494887

Not that it's matters to anyone else and not sure why I'm doing this (I guess I just wanna find "peace" with myself because I do feel a bit bad) But yeah hi, the 40 minutes of white knighting-girl here. Someone already dropped my username here so no need for me to expose myself anymore than I already am. But yeah I just wanted to say I'm also the same person as this anon:
And I really appreciate that people forgot about my shitty rant almost as quick as I took it down. I'm laughing at myself since I stated in the video "I'm not just some white knight" But that's exactly 100% what I was and as people pointed out: if I didn't know anything, I shouldn't have touched the subject. I actually discovered this thread AFTER posting the video and once I realised that I indeed had no idea what I was talking about and how ignorant and baseless the video was, I was like "shit" and took it down.

Basically I put my hand in the oven and was surprised I got burned lol.

And as I've explored this thread even further I also noticed that I have a lot in common with Holly in a sense that I make impulsive emotion driven decisions that tend to come bite me in the ass later. (though for the most part this has happened irl and not online, thank god) And without going further into details I've experienced being a "shut in", like Holly, myself in the past (in a smaller scale though) but my closest friend kindly pointed out that I might need help so I searched for it and I'm better now. (I hope Holly would talk to someone too.)

The point being that I guess the reason I got so upset was that when Holly got called out for her bs, maybe that made me discover some unpleasant truths about myself as well. And since I'm a young artist myself and have started sharing my stuff online not too long ago, I got scared I might end up like her: at first thinking "for no good reason" like I stated in my now deleted rant. But now at the moment of writing this my thoughts have switched to the fear of being hated on for making the same mistakes as Holly because I wouldn't acknowledge my shitty behaviour.

People already told me to not beat myself up for it so I'm not asking for pity but I actually thought that my experience might be useful to the possible other holly-white knights who might be passing by this thread and make them consider that Holly isn't as cool as they thought.

In the deleted rant I told people to "Grow up!" But whoops, ironically it turns out it was me who needed to grow up and dig a little deeper. Once again: even though I feel bad for Holly I'm glad I found this thread and people pointed out my bullshit. I learned a small life lesson.

Apologies for the long post, I just felt like I couldn't shake the embarrassment of my behaviour without coming clean, even though it would have been smarter to just stay quiet since this thread is about Holly, not me. And people weren't paying much attention to me always….

No. 494895

Just glad you were able to come to your senses and try to figure things out. Someone made a response video to Holly and in the description wrote "I will support Holly no matter what she says or how she says it" and that's the problem, her followers don't question anything she says or think for themselves. They think oh, Holly said it so it's true!!

No. 494896

I was at work so sorry if some of these are old now but i got my 2 cents on a few of these

Yeah, I've got the message but I won't share it because I know Ioana wouldn't want that but it likely wasn't the nicest message to get after being ignored for a while by her, and I personally felt pretty bad too since I was on a call with her at the time and she hung up because she was really upset..

lol I've got screen shots of her calling me an asshole after hate following me if you guys want it? It's only short though, so not sure if it means much apart from just sorta proving stuff?

She's not all that edgy! sort of super mega/ oney plays humour if you consider that edgy. She might've been a bit different with holly but before we were even friends back in 2016 her first message to me was that she thought my art was cute so she's never came off as rude to me (though I was hesitant to talk to her after finding out she was Holly's friend..lol)

sorry if any of these are sort of OT! Just clearing a few things up because I know Ioana and I'm fairly sure she doesn't lurk here herself to do so!

No. 494898

It's okay anon, there seem to be several people who had their "eyes opened" about her lately after lurking in these threads, kek. I personally used to be fine with her a few months ago even though I didn't like her art but then she started to get more and more rude and negative.

And re-watching some her older videos, I noticed that even back then she already had a pretty bad attitude that somehow just went past me. E.g in her "you need color theory" video she was pretty much shitting on "fine artists" for no apparent reason other than that they're "mostly self-taught" (according to her) and claiming you NEED to go to an art school to understand color theory (like SHE obviously does). I guess she always came off as somewhat arrogant and bitchy but somehow it seems to be getting worse lately.

No. 494900

Yeah, I mean I know it must feel shitty when someone you look up to turns out to be something else/not as good of a person, I mean look at all the popular and loved celebrities getting exposed all the time! And then people need to come to terms with whether or not they still support someone or respect them or not. Others are able to acknowledge their faults while still supporting them/respecting them, some people loose any and all love for that idol they had and then there's the sad portion of fans that simply REFUSE to hear anything negative about the person they like. I know from multiple experiences that it's does hurt when someone bashes someone or something you like but you should at least accept the faults and see that they're there or you might show a bad image of yourself too.

No. 494905

posts saying she's snobby about going to art school are confusing to me for the same reason posts about her bad attitude keeping her out of jobs are moot, which is that she can't freaking DRAW. Her drawing is too bad for her to get into any school let alone job…

(I'm sincerely sorry I type like i do haha) there was a little more to this but there's the meat of things, aka her response. Childish probably wasn't the best word to go for but at the time I was under 18 with way less followers and hadn't even really talked to her/ she only knew of me for being friends with an ex friend of hers, I wasn't really sure what the right word was haha. Just seemed a bit hypocritical from someone who made a video called 'Stop hate following and gtfo'.

No. 494911

actually you'd be surprised at some school's acceptance rate despite some of the art be looking shitty. Tbh, I've seen worse than Holly's artwork be accepted to a decent school. Also doesn't she attend an online art school? I hope she's not acting pretentious about that…

No. 494915

No. 494916

I think she went to a "real" art school for a year or so and switched to online classes afterwards. Apparently she also went to a famous art High School, so maybe some of her arrogance stems from that.

No. 494917

Personally I think she probably has gotten into some art schools because what she said about" not needing to be super skilled to get in" is true to some regard. I mean I got accepted to this one art school in my country and when I look back at some of the stuff I made during my first year there, I still made some pretty wonky shit. BUT the school I graduated from isn't even nearly as hard to get in to or as well known and respected as something like CalArts for example. So sure: you can find a school that lets you in but it's a different story when it comes to what kind of school that is.

it's my understanding that you don't necessarily need to be perfect at art at the time of your applying. they most likely what to see if, whith where you are at currently, you are teachable, receptive to learning new things and aren't locked into just doing one or two things. they want to know that you're more malleable than fixed in your ways.

No. 494920

that's true, what's why she APOLOGISED, calling out her apology on this exact issue is so counterproductive, really makes people think farmers are mean-spirited

No. 494922

Yup, indeed! That's what I've taken from my own experience in the "art school world" at least. couldn't have said it better. They seem to be looking for a potential for growth and if you fit their methods of teaching. And that's why some people go through several art schools in their lives because they might start polishing their skills in a more easy to get to-schools and once they have more knowledge and experience, move on to perfecting their skills even more in a more challenging and competitive school. But from what I saw from Holly's CalArts-rant it really made me go "geez! wow…" Because with an attitude like that… I don't even know what to say.

Especially since from what I understood she had completely misunderstood the methods of how the school accepts students.

No. 494924

you guys are all right I guess I shouldn't have said she's too bad to get in art school so much as too bad to BE in art school. As in someone would have made her change how she draws hands - unless it's her first..term?

No. 494934

While apologies are good and important, they start to lose meaning when you do something almost daily that causes a huge blowback and requires an apology. Plus her pervasive negative attitude doesn't help, either. Basically her apologies seem kinda insincere. The least she could do is lay low a bit or be less vocal if she can't control the way she says things or what she says (which she even said she'd not narrate art vids on bad days, but she never ended up following through and simply stuck her foot in her mouth the following day).

Bare-minimum ass covering =/= actual remorse.

No. 494936


No, she's pretty far along in her online school courses. she's stubborn though, and progresses slowly because of that.

her skill and her mindset/attitude seem tidally locked.

No. 494937

Her apologies sound more like "I'm sorry that I am like this, sorry that you don't agree with me, this is just who I am, deal with it" instead of actually saying WHY she is sorry and admitting that she is in the wrong. She acts in a way that makes her seem like she doesn't have a good enough reason to be sorry, and I don't think she is. She is very vague and sprouts cliches like "I'm nowhere near perfect" and that's basically what everyone says when they fuck up some way or another. It's easy to say "I'm a bad person, sorry" But if you don't explain why you understand you're a bad person then it's empty words.

No. 494943

Oh my gosh! That reminded me:
When I was in art school, during my first year I was very stubborn when it came to certain critiques my teachers gave me. Sometimes I was in denial of what they said and I might've refused to listen to their advice or make excuses like "but I like how this looks!" But during a longer critique session one of my favourite teachers pointed out my stubborn nature. And ever since then I've had this one rule for myself that I repeat like mantra sometimes:

"You're not here to show off, you're here to learn"
meaning that if you want to be taught stuff, you can't have the attitude where you already know what you're doing. You need to remember that you have a long way to go. If you already knew everything why would you be studying?

Looking at Holly feel like looking into a mirror of what may happen if I told Youtube seriously at that age. I would have stayed fat, miserable and pathetic from not getting a job. This happened nearly a year ago so I'll try to recount some details

>She has poor social skills though that she can't detect sarcasm
>Not surprised considering that she is autistic
>Said that she wants porn of her characters drawn
>Got free time and doodled her brown guy getting fucked in the ass since she said her comic was about gay men and she drew him a lot
>Tries to give it to her but blocks me for any real reason before sending it to her
>Weridly ghosts me when asked why
Must of got pissed that I drew her made up boyfriend getting anal screwed haha.
All joking aside she really was a Debby Downer with the lack of social building blocks to make friends. She seriously needs to go outside and get a job. I wished I had screenshots of her insta Dms, because I remember her somewhere in there she said she was a "priest to her art"

For someone who's "content isn't for kids" Holly attracts nothing but immature children. lol It sucks because I was also the same way as a young teenager where I looked up to an old cow, Zeriara, bc of how "real" she was and didn't give a fuck. No doubt if the universe was flipped around and I was 13-17 years old I would look up to Holly as well. It's that "hardcore, bad bitch, I don't give a fuck" phase most teenagers go through then grow out of, but it's pathetic Holly hasn't.

I told her not never get a refurbished cintiq after telling her my bad experience with one. So at least she took the cintiq advice but not the weight loss advice. We later talk about skincare and she said the most she has ever done was a scrub once a year.
