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] [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

In the previous thread:
>Holly backtracks on her animation goals and starts the 100 days of making comics challenge
>Her lack of tact massively backfires on her as people get pissed about her constantly shitting on everyone
>Holly BALEETS most of her videos and posts two rants about how she's "Done with the drama" and "won't say anything again ever"
>Opens commissions to make money instead
>Deletes those videos too and decides to just go back her regular video and abandon any critical thinking altogether

Is Holly literally autistic, or have the years of being a shut-in just eroded her social skills? Will she ever stop deleting negative comments? Let's find out.

I know shoes are very very tricky to get because they're so many kinds and the surface is not uniform so it's hard to get it right without getting close to tracing sometimes.

Brushing it alone will look dull, flat, and ruin the beachy waves. God forbid if she did that with short hair she would have the dutch boy hairstyle

What she needs a good cut that goes with her face shape, no tumblr coloring bullshit, use a shampoo and conditioner that sulfate free, no additional product since this could weight the hair down and cause acne, blow-dry with diffuser on hot then blast with cold after showering, and optional invest in a silk pillowcase to prevent any frizz.

Again her mentality that owning/buying something will make you a professional. Now she’s gonna have a degree and be able to be the shitty teacher jealous of other people’s talent she hated in high school. She just can’t seem to understand that she needs to practice while actively thinking of what she’s doing instead of spending on programs and tools.
>>552126
Loving the bent thumb! But as someone suggested, this is way too detailed and complex, she would have at max some paw hands under the camera. My guess is he just got mutilated for that panel, they look like broken wrists or he’s handless.
>>552037
Ahahah all of the proportions are wrong in her picture. It was also idiotic to use the previous version as a base just to save some details. If you don’t want to redraw it, don’t. It’s simple. She focuses on details instead of the big picture/ mass allocation. I see a pattern. I still can’t believe that amateurish (at best) as she is, she is still perceived as a goddess and professional by her subs. Sure, that’s because she claims to be a professional herself, but everybody with eyes and a working brain could call it bullshit.


Also guys it’s bothering me to no end that she made the video crying about people who said she should die, and then says everybody who uses mc leod’s music should kill themselves. It’s really, really bothering me that nobody’s calling her out on this just because she’s funny and hhhhhhhhonest

I remember she made a video once semi-humble-bragging about it. It was her YT revenue combined with her merchandise sales. This was a whole back, though. She definitely doesn't upload as frequently anymore and I think her viral videos lost a lot of steam.

Something I've been thinking about. Holly likely lurks and this "oh no i have HATERS" thing has been going on for a while now. Is she so delusional and un-self aware of the fact that she's a fucking idiot and bad at art? Sure, okay, personality is hard to change up, but if so many people are shitting on her art, she's gotta take a moment to think "Wow, yeah these people are right, I should learn to fix this so they can get off my ass and I can remain on my high horse." At the very least, actually improving her art would be a slap to our faces.

Spechie honestly deserves her own thread if she doesn't already have one. She's A LOT like Holly but less loud about it.

I think one of the most noteable things about her is that she once got in trouble at her school for talking shit about a girl there. Then she got somewhat of a following and started acting like a diva, including treating some friends like shit, cause she was convinced people were trying to get at her "youtube fame"
Sound familiar?

Actually this is a valid point. I wouldn't say Holly has improved, she's just shifted style.

Some artists never improve for years, they just keep shifting styles. This is common in a lot of anime style artists who never practice fundamentals.

It was always ugly. You just got lucky in finding an audience. I guess people find you relateable and junk so congrats on your e-fame.

I mean, she could lean - hah- into it and make it a design choice if she was willing to work on it.

I really like the crooked backgrounds and faces in some of the Disney series like the Tangled and hotel Transylvania TV series, for example, skewed perspectives add s lot of character.

I mean obviously the designers of those started from knowing correct perspective and also how to skew things so they look good, neither of which Holly has yet. At the moment she seems to be trying to make it realistic and ending up slanting everything left. But just from a style pov, if she could be bothered, something like that might work for her story.

Christ. Reading a document written by Holly just highlights how piss-poor her grammar is. I'm not sure if there's a correct sentence in this document. Her attempts at being "philosophical" or "highbrow" are so fucking laughable. She says she wrote Purgatory in high school, and it's obvious that she didn't actually put any thought into it at all. She rambles about the plot and her influences, but there's barely any substance to the plot at all? Like, you can't write a story that's a critique of religion in which religion heavily features without laying out the tenets of that religion? We all know Holly doesn't into worldbuilding because it's "a waste of time," but maybe a little bit of worldbuilding would make it easier to keep up with a project for more than the first chapter, you idiot.

Sorry for sperging but poor writing makes me so angry. The idea of a world where the major power is an occult/pagan "church" that functions in a similar way to Christianity in our world could be such an interesting thing to explore, but no, for Holly it has to be "bweeeeh religion baaaad hhhhhnnnn underage rape scene".

She didn't even try to use different wordings so that it wouldn't come off so strong, but nope, she just went right in and said that she wanted to include the kid getting raped since it's a prominent aspect that surrounds catholic churches.

Christ, this just comes off as fujo shit so bad where alot of stupid yaoi plots are just the main guy getting raped and the love interest justifying it and shit.

Reading this document makes me sick, there's better ways to actually deal with these kinds of issues, don't just put it in as a plot device to mame the main character seem "uwu so vulnerable, must protect smol damaged bean" to fulfill your sick fujo fantasies

Yeah you know what, you hit the point. She keeps saying that if you don’t like her stuff it’s because you don’t like her art style, but that’s totally not true.
It’s not about style, it’s about inconsistencies and poorly made stuff. One can like a style or not but if you suck it shows and that’s a fact. She just can’t accept that she’s not the inhuman skilled artist she tells herself to be, and hides behind the style mask just like every 14yo kid approaching to animes.
If her things were actually thought, and planned and she would be a little more humble, we wouldn’t be as harsh.
I follow tons of people that I’m not really into style wise but I like to see them progress, and lots of non skilled artists overcoming their difficulties actually warm my heart. So I’m not saying that if you suck you must die, it’s her attitude that’s pissing people, because she’s always on her high horse when she doesn’t have any right to talk down to other people.

Plus animating in photoshop is very easy and in my opinion a great sowtwear if you're okay with animating around 200 frames at a time since the program begins to slow down at that point.

Hell, when I'm not at school which supplies photoshop to us, I draw all my animations in paint tool Sai and test out the animation flow in a free program called drawpile until I can go back to school and transfer the frames over into photoshop.

If you have passion and a strong enough intent you don't need the top of the line tools to accomplish the projects you want. Why can't she just make do with the already useful tools she has? It's not like the more expensive the program the easier it is to cut corners, you still have to create a great animation to create a great animation.

If she can't make a good enough animation without all these tricks she can pull off in the program she wants to buy then maybe she should learn how to animate and story board some more instead of wasting cash

I am actually surprised she does not have a thread. I accidentally found her one day and I could not understand why she is so popular. I tried to watch a few videos but it only confused me more. She is an adult yet acts like an edgy 13 year old, and her art is very underwhelming. I thought maybe she gained popularity because her stories were interesting, but I found her stories to be too try-hard and they always made her come across as a spoiled brat.

I just chalked it up to me being too old to understand kids these days.

Back on topic:

I'm glad I found this thread. I don't think Holly Brown is necessarily a bad person or anything, but before I found lolcow I thought I was the only one that didn't understand her appeal. Her art is just so bad yet she has art tutorials that, for some reason, have a lot of views and likes. I am trying to get back into drawing after not doing it for years, and it always annoyed me how Holly Brown and other bad artists kept getting recommended to me in my Youtube feed. I feel like an ass when I say someone's art is bad; I know making art can be difficult. But I'm sorry, her art is just not good, at least not good enough for her to be making art tutorials.

Hold up there cowboy I never said it was a masterpiece, but art is subjective and I can say it's good b/c it is something that expresses her own personality and sense of humor well.

Some of yall need to take a step back and focus less on her technical fuck ups, and more on the attitude. Girl can really draw from her imagination with a passion. It's just that the content that she has to work from, what her brain has consumed is middle school level at best.

Also imo you can't really separate a comic from the technical aspects, writing, pacing, flow etc are important and if you can't convey your story properly it's a failed attempt. Most people express themselves in their comics but that doesn't make them good.

On the other hand, if she's genuinely gone through some rough shit as a child/teen when her being emotionally stunted is not that surprising, it's a common thing.

I agree with this anon and, I think her attitude is complete shit and she needs to be criticized for what she spews to her audience, but if we criticize her every attempt at the technical stuff, she’ll probably give up b/c she has a fragile ego..
her horse drawing for example, I think it’s great that she tried to draw a horse and all, but we all saw how messed up that looked, I criticized her rushed work with the stylization because that’s something we all know she likes to do.. the critique about the anatomy was correct, but should she really do studies or just think some happy thoughts and clean her room for a change? I know from experience it’s tough to get anatomy correct when I don’t have any emotional investment in the stuff I make. Could be different for others I’m just trying to get a discussion going.

I’m sorry to be that person but if you want to be a professional (and you claim to be one) you don’t give a fuck about personal investment. You need to train your hand and brain, focus and study as much as you can.
If you want to pursue art as a career “inspiration” and “‘moods” do not exist, unless you know you can sell whatever you want because you have a pillow to save your ass every time you fall.
Art as a job, especially in the industry (since she’s not one of those fine artists she shits on or introspective people) is no different than any other job. Once you have the skills you can draw in every condition.
She has a fragile ego? Well then maybe she should learn that other people might have it too and act accordingly, I don’t want to cuddle her and shield her from what’s wrong in her art, that’s exactly what she wants, probably why she left a real college, and what her whole huge fanbase keep doing.

Well think about it, drugs are more supply and demand business especially if they live in a white trash/hood area and now rebellious millennials wanting to embarrass weed in Texas. You can find a weed dealer that sells $20 per gram of good quality (if lucky I've seen dealers that charge more).
The demand for weed in red states that wouldn't give a slap on the wrist if you get caught with it would drive a higher price. It's not a safe job but if you know what you are doing you can make $2000-$3000 a night which is more than Holly can make by doing art videos or selling ugly merch. Not a safe or desirable job, but people do drug dealing when they hit a low point and seen a good chunk come out of it.
From what we know of Holly has bought a washing machine for the family and that's it. The brother for all we know might actually be trying to helping out. In a broke as the family its better that your symbiotic relationship should be mutualism not parasitic.

does anyone actually have any proof of how much she makes? how is it that she can buy expensive art/craft equipment and have a savings account for her family to blow through if she's making less than minimum wage?

No. 557548

>>557546
I think there are a few people here in denial about how much cash Holly makes off her merch sales and YTbucks.
I heard er say 50k a year. That's a lot of spending money for someone who still lives with their parents.

Holly also complains about how "poor" she is but I don't really think she knows what that means. Holly seems to think not being able to buy whatever you want whenever you want = poor

People who grow up without money often don't have the skills to spend it properly as adults. Considering her personality, backstory, and abilities (primarily spelling), I have no doubt she grew up white-trash levels of income. Now, any money she gets, she can't save it, and instead splurges. Its a common thing for low-income children to grow up with terrible spending habits as adults.

I think she was making that before the youtube demonetization thing and when she was at peak popularity (her vids don't do too great now).

If all she has to buy is food and rent to a parent there is tons of room to blow cash. It's not like she'd pay for internet, gas, utilities, insurance, etc. And when you don't have to worry about that stuff, there is little incentive to save.

Even if she makes less than minimum wage Holly really doesn't have any expenses she needs to worry about because she still lives with her aunt who pays for most of her day to day expenses. Also, Holly doesn't seem to splurge a lot on non art related purchases like many other youtubers so I am not surprised that she can afford all these big art purchases?

I dunno. I find it a lot harder to make friends as an adult than I did as a teen, so I understand what she saying. Many of my college friends moved to different states after they got jobs or got married. Holly works from home so who is she gonna talk to?

It is definitely harder to make friends as an adult than it is when you're in high school, but the notion that everyone over the age of 21 is just rotting in their room with no friends is pretty ridiculous. Adult friendships are just more work, and maybe you don't see people as often, but it's definitely not normal to have no friends.

WTF is wrong with Faye? She looks like a scarecrow.
The whole pose doesn't work, the fence is wrong AF and if you're going to represent characters from behind it has to be for strict and powerful symbolism or special effects, holly.
It's even okay that you are refusing on drawing what's popular because you're obviously the only one who likes "old" cartoons (CBebop is not even that old, btw) but at least make it appealing.
You chose to picture two characters, one of them has a strong sex appeal and would be an easy buy for random teenagers that only ask for 2d cleavage and a nice face but NO of course let's break her spine and give her a flat ass.

Tbf spike DOES have “heels”. Pretty much every kind of shoe that’s not totally flat (à la converse) has some sort of heel, they just have different shapes and heights so sometimes it’s almost unnoticeable.

Yeah but you’re supposed to love PP because she says it’s great. It works with her fans, so she will maybe sell a couple or charms at the con.

Can Holly type anything without a typo or some sort of misspelling? I would think this is all an elaborate troll if she were not so unattentive.

Also she's misspelled "palette" in every possible instance of the word. This is the "pallet" she's referring to. But of course such an advanced, esteemed artist would never make such a mistake….

Why she gotta fucking ruin everything I like? She’s only in the fandom (not even that) because it’s popular. Her art of the kids makes me wanna puke bc it’s so bad. I’ve seen bad art on the fandom before but hers is just so uncomfortable to look at. I hope she gets over this like she did SU, because I don’t think she truly likes the content so much as she just wants to profit off its popularity

Damn I felt stupid and deleted my response before I saw yours. Sorry bout that.

Is anyone else pumped for the zeeeeen? I can’t wait to see what Holly thinks is good enough to put her name to when it’s not her own work. She’s so damn critical and doesn’t play well with others. I have a feeling this is going to be delicious.

Current list of her projects:

>Purgatory comic

>Paranormal comic
>Animatics (Hamilton)
>Clever Kitchen animation
>Fan-Zine
>School work
>Convention prep
>YouTube videos
>Comissions

Am I missing anything? She’s also trying to lose weight, put together illustrations for her portfolio, and girl needs to sort her room out cause it’s a cluster fuck.

No. 560566

From the tumblr she's said it has gotten 187 applications and the maz number of artists is 150-200 so…. First of all, 150 is way too many, most zine dont have more than 50. Second of all, in my experience, only about 10% of applications have good enough art to even consider, so either she should lower the number or have a zine full of ugly art.

No. 560568

I wonder how many people will apply. not out of interest of working on a project for holly, but for the possibly of getting some publicity

It did to me too. Like, why would you call someone who uses the actual name term, "annoying"? For me it's actually annoying hearing people call it the translated name somehow, I guess because it's shorter and easier? Quicker? Not sure. But it's irritating nonetheless.

Did she even make the goal or did she have to pony up most of the cash herself to get this?

No. 560988

She made nowhere near the goal. IIRC she found a bunch of money in her paypal she forgot was there? Or something? Kinda fucked up cause she probably could have afforded it before donations and those fans donated for no reason. I don't think she's intentionally trying to scam people, but I would feel scammed if I donated to her.
