The CalArts Rant she is known for:

>22-year-old freelancer artist who does youtube, lives with her mom (aunt), and runs an online store

>She hates her brother and constantly sperges about him whenever she gets a chance. Was known to keep bashing him on a live stream once (way after he went away)
>Takes on too many projects at once, then complains about it afterwards
>Constantly bitches on twitter
>Is a big hypocrite, the type to give advice and then do the total opposite
>Thinks she is a professional hardworking artist when in reality she is a stay at home slob who can never finish anything
>Shits on other artists
>Always talks about how she doesn't have money and how ""poor"" she is but is constantly seen (and broadcast on Twitter/social media) buying unnecessary items
>When she buys said items, she brags about how great they are, then is known to disregard them (usually sell them) about a week or so after using them
>Always talks about trying to earn money from various art projects, but it never works
>Cant take criticism to save her life, she will usually respond with something passive or aggressive or blame it on her style.
>Is a complete FUJO, but yet complains about Fujoshis, a total hypocrite
>Hates women and just wants to draw "teh gays"
>Has no friends and is cooped up inside her house. Her room is very filthy.
>Cant spell or write for shit. Has terrible grammar anything she writes is confusing. (Also goes and shits on people for not knowing how to spell)
>Has a terrible personality in general

In The Previous Thread:
>Normal Usual holly shit: Can't manage money, selling and buying things on a whim, cleaning up her room little by little
>Finally got a gym membership and is getting out the house. Is trying to cook but fucks things up and can't follow recipes.
>Creates a "hot yaoi smex doujin" (gay porn comic) but it has terrible anatomy and is generally repulsive. The said comic features her characters, Reese and Hershel. Reese kidnaps Hershel and rapes him. (To Note: She always complains about Fujos putting rape and heteronormative characters in their stories…yet does the exact same thing herself). The comic is named, "Seize" It can be found here: http://hollybrown.storenvy.com/products/23942157-seize-nsfw-mini-comic
>Also creates a BNHA (Boku No Hero Academia/My Hero Academia) Zine. She starts off by saying she hired 100 artist- but the number is seen to fluctuate (80,60 etc) when Brown describes it. The Zine is called "True Colors" because of the horrendous color pallet she forced everyone to use. The Zine Can be found here: https://tictail.com/truecolorsmha/true-colors-zine-mha
>First off, she is late for the deadlines with her own art for the zine, she will not release the PDF to the participating artist, says she will make many copies but currently just has supplies for around 50 copies, Her art pieces look shitty (as normal) but at least the other artist are good
>She is fucking the artist over because they are young and don't know any better
>Constantly gets angry whenever someone asks questions about the zine and its progress
> """Redisning""" some of her characters but they pretty much still look the same, ended up whitewashing Princess (her black girl oc) and claims she is more cuter
>Her brother returns and is living with her again (at her aunts)
>Went on a Keto diet for about a day, then quits
>Going to have our comics printed professionally while she prints the zines her self
>Wants to create another zine of her art pieces only
>Keeps wining about the artists she screwed over getting mad at her ignoring their emails and not updating them about her progress on the zine books
>She refuses to send the PDF of the zine to any of the other artists that contributed so that they would have to order from her or make their own copies to sell at cons

>Is gonna go to SanJapan Convention, but still is lagging due to putting too much on her plate

>Projects List: Hamilton Animatic, Clever Kitchen, Convention Stuff, Paranormal Plague, Purgatory (redrawing/inking), BNHA themed zine

No. 668051


Realistic? It looks like badly blended paint streaks. and Pearl is still Literally Green. I'm sure that even after she puts the background layer back on, she won't look any less green.
And since this is going to be a print, that green is going to stand out so much more on paper.

Return of the CHIN.
Though I think this might be an older piece she plans to redraw??


It isn't the other people who are the problem, Holly, involving yourself in groups isn't inherently bad. It's the way you went about it.

It would have been better/easier if you communicated more and if you hadn't insisted on being at the helm a big project thinking you could minimize interaction with others as much as humanly possible. And then get away with it. Now you're regretting you got caught and stuck with the work.
Deal with it.

No. 668194

i’m honestly shocked and actually slightly proud that she admitted it was her fault and that the person wasn’t just a “hater”. the fact that it’s a group project does not mean that it was bound to fail though. i think she does finally realize how awful she is at taking on leader responsibilities and managing/talking to many people. maybe she’ll do better in the future?? (i know it’s like a 1 in a million event, but i wanna give her a chance.)
Also, who else thinks that if she had been a part of a large group zine before this, that it would have been handled a little bit better? She hasn’t been a part of any other zines, right? sorry, but who in the world thinks they can manage a huge project like this without ever having been a part of something similar?

i second this. why is her left hip tilting so much when that's the leg that is kept straight holding her weight? why is the right leg out of perspective? that pose is so goddamn stiff and awkward to look at. no one stands like that in that situation. that camera is out of perspective too.

Also in the first reply to the person who pointed out some stuff, holly had to bash other zines to make her feel better. Its not going to be the same if these zines she made are shitty to.. But we will have to wait to verify that when they ship out or if she sells some at sanjapan.

She said in a vlog that there were 83 total. Your point still stands though.

Also, she has a problem for as long as I remember with making characters actually look like they're standing on the surface. Instead, they weirdly hover over or just look like ugly stickers put on top of a random background.

No. 668312

Does she not set a plain for her characters to exists before making a background? Like I know if your just doodling you normally don’t but if she wants to make a full finished piece she needs to start making undersketches that actually have work put into them because everything is off in this the anatomy, the perspective, the lines the background, everything is squished to one side and floating

No. 668328


She's completely flush with the wall and it looks like she's stepping out of it as a result. Especially with those tangenting lines.

None of what she draws has a flow or direction to it, it's just irrelevant detail, wonky perspective and bad proportions.

Having a different art style does not automatically equal good art. No one cares if someone's fanart has a different style than a show or whatever. It only becomes problematic when the fanart (or the person's art in general) is littered with mistakes. I'm not really sure what you're trying to argue here anon.

No. 669157

Big AL and Holly are kinda crazily similar, so this was bound to happen. They both lie to their fans constantly about trying to 'do better' (for AL, its weight loss, for Holly, it's doing projects), they both collect copious amounts of shit they'll never use, and they both complain about 'haydurs' even tho they could learn how to be better if they listened to them. Not to mention their stupid southern valley girl speak they do """ironically""", 'yass gurl, slayyy'.
It's hilarious that Holly seems to be attacking AL, like a cat attacking its reflection in the mirror.

No. 669360

I know we won't find an answer but it is so intriguing whether she made it all misaligned on purpose for 'style' or not. Because you think, it's so clearly off that no one would leave it like that accidentally. Looking at the logo she made, that is even uglier so maybe it's to suit but then, surely she wouldn't make the logo deliberately lopsided/unaligned/dog shit in the first place deliberately surely… i dunno i think she has some dyslexia type thing which means she can't see where things really are

Not that it matters. I hope everyone gets their stuff and she never works with others again.

Possible? Sure. Possible with consistent, high quality? Doubtful.

No. 669571

also, has she still not put up the zine again? so she hasn't had orders on it for days, yet she's still playing catch-up. and it'll most likely get worse when she puts it up again (unless it being unavailable for a period has deterred ppl from buying it, which may have been her goal)

I always find it weird that she would start her comics ,then stop to re-due them?
that's kinda counter productive and it takes time away from where she could actually develop her comic more.But this start then stop pace is really setting her back.
She should only re-due them after at least a few chapters in, not 6 pages in thats stupid tbh .

No. 669805


She would probably be better off not redoing old pages at all. A lot of the comics I read do have significant art shift between the first few pages and the final pages. It's just unrealistic expecting the art in your comic to not evolve as you get better at art.

No. 670084

Listen, Holly's art is ugly but you would have to be blind to think the first few pages of Purgatory looked better than the newer pages. Sure, I would agree the art in the original one-shot of Purgatory was much more creative than the current expanded comic but it still looked wonky as hell.

Speaking of the original one-shot of Purgatory, does anybody have screenshots of it from Holly's earlier videos? I feel like a lot of the newer anons keep parroting how Holly's earlier stuff was 'so great' because they actually have no idea of how bad her early stuff actually looked.

We have to wait for whatever goes down at SanJapan and whatever the fallout is after with the Zine, etc. At least that's what it seems like.

> does anybody have screenshots of it from Holly's earlier videos?
There are screenshots in the older threads, people can just look. Her old stuff was wonky but visually interesting, now it's wonky and bland. No one said it was great ever.

No. 670376

Holly showed signs of evolving and changing and learning different styles of art and seemed like she could be pretty varied as an artist but the last two years she’s stagnated and gotten worse.
Her old styles showed character and growth, her new stuff shows just how much she doesn’t care about her own art, it’s like instead of telling herself that she’ll use these few years of school to learn/practice the things they try to teach to grow as an artist and instead said “OHHH IF I TELL PEOPLE I WAS IN ART SCHOOL THEY WILL THINK IM PRO”
I really want to know what the fuck happened to her, like does she seriously only draw because she thinks it’ll make her money?

No. 670419

Here's my analysis.
I think because she doesn't really respect anyone's opinion but her own when it comes to art critique, the only way she has to measure her art's worth is with how much money she can make with it.

She looks like she has both a superiority and inferiority complex; she looks down on others because they're not "good enough" but then she realises herself that she has big issues and because she doesn't know how to fix them she goes back to shitting on others, which doesn't help her improve and only isolates her more. It's a vicious circle.

There's a learning curve for artists and very regularly we encounter walls. Most try to break down that wall, albeit often with a few very bad attempts until they figure out what really blocks them the most, but in Holly's case, because she doesn't want to have to face a wall, she just. turns around, so she doesn't have to deal with that shit.

No. 670447


>does she seriously only draw because she thinks it’ll make her money?

She seems to like the 'idea' of being an artist, who makes a living off of her own stuff, but when it comes to actually doing it, she doesn't seem to necessarily enjoy it, so she's always bitching about it in some way or other.It feels like she's not being honest with herself.

Last one I’m posting because this highlights why she can’t take criticism at all, because her head is so far up her ass and her skin is so thin that even the most mundane and easy going critique will be seen as “harsh, mean and unneeded bullying”

She’s got other stop posted like who she takes inspiration from and art tips even tho she really shouldn’t be giving anyone tips for art

No. 670483

Jfc, no wonder she's so depressed. Any professional artist will tell you that you need outlets so you don't end up wanting to kill yourself. Some people have hobbies that are still creative but aren't their main work, like writing or knitting, some people like to go hiking or hit the beach, some people like to watch documentaries or movies or play games, but the thing is you NEED to do something other than work, because if you don't it will actually hurt your work.

No. 670493

I mean most friends that I know that make art tend to do it as a hobby and that’s why they like it so much, it’s something to enjoy not something to torture themselves over
How can she not be to the point that she wants to give up and just enjoy her life instead of punishing herself, she’s just going to end up hating it in another year or so

No. 670552

There are plenty of people that make a living g drawing freelance. The difference is Holly has no business sense and no social skills. Not to mention she wastes her money on splurging. She's just an idiot if she would plan better and take time with her work she already has an audience to become successful. Unfortunately she's already alienated so many people so maybe she should get a desk job.

No. 670584

That’s the thing, if she wasn’t so hostile and was more open to criticism and personal growth she would probably start making a good deal of money, nothing crazy but enough to make the effort worthwhile, especially since she’s in a position that most artists dont have and that’s having a “large” audience to get that critique and growth from… but she throws a tantrum instead and tells everyone to fuck off her way or the highway and it’s so fucking stupid. For real if she doesn’t get any better st her craft by the end of this year I don’t see the point on her continuing a career in art, because she won’t last long

No. 670596

I know we all talk mad shit about her shitty attitude and half-assed content, but the way she seems to cope with the reality of mental illness and loneliness by just shitting out endless lopsided drawings and "investing" in useless tools instead of just going to a therapist is frustrating and somewhat concerning. Get some help.

No. 670628

Holly has the audience,but no common sense with the impact she has and how good she has it.
While she can still make money while not a lot there is another artist out there who is amazing but has to work a side job or more to make ends meet while running their shop.
She needs to find herself and talk with someone not through a computer screen but an actual person. She needs to have in real life friends that she can hang around with. Not get holed up in her room for hours on end, heck find a part time job so she can put time as an important factor instead of doing the whole "I have all the time in the world " but oops guess what she does everything last minute anyway.

The thing is, I don’t think holly can enjoy much in life outside of the narcissistic supply she receives from social media. She’s gotta do some deep digging and feel fire out how to be happy an present in the moment, that’s for sure. She’s constantly living in the future, with another project or goal around the corner, and once that’s finished, she thinks she will finally attain the result she craves. She always says art is a constant struggle but she hasn’t really experienced that yet. She’s still an art baby but in my opinion that’s okay and everyone takes a different amount of time to get past these mental blocks. It’s just been a hell of a funny ride and I hope she keeps going, in whatever direction she chooses. /blogpost

No. 670714

In all honesty I feel for Holly, I mean I don’t think we should go easy on her or anything but I can very much empathize with her struggles since I went through much the same and really all I’d like to see is her get some help and a few irl friends and learn to live life before she’s a super bitter 30 year old with no joy in anything.

It’d be great to see her grow as an artist and see if she can actually make good pieces one day but I’d rather see her get mental help then monetary gain.

So I just found this on her tapastic. She has a comic series where she is supposed to draw a comic guide to comics but instead she just takes other people's work and gets tipped for it apparently.

Why would it look like that even, when it's a logo? Tracing a font to make it look more "organic" is pretty common and not a bad thing especially if you have no fucking clue about stroke order or how to write properly like Holly.

not one of the artists, but i srsly doubt any of them want that kind of attention drawn to them from holly’s stupid fanbase lmao. i think one of them even stated on a past thread that they were doing it mostly bc of holly’s “fame”. although of course holly can’t be bothered to give anyone proper recognition. you’d think that when you have an extra large group zine that it would be even more important to make sure that people know which piece belongs to whom and all that, but nah. stir up a bunch of hype around a project, teasing it for ages, and then utterly shit on it and showcase it for like .5 secs before moving on to the next piece of garbage. that’s the holly BRown way!

No. 672813

Thats true but the issue here is. Someone is asking for a response. They went through email and did not get one. And instead of apologizing or being respectful she throws "oh but you guys shouldnt be complaining because your just up and coming artists." Why was that necessary to post when they are asking Holly to be transparent with them. As in actually updating them on important stuff.

Also I don't know why his hand was placed there, is he saluting or just adjusting his eye patch like it's a pair of glasses? And that terrible gradient… It's not as bad as her other work, but still bad.

No. 673103


Yeah, i guess she means cool toned but her dumbass said blue.
Thing is I do agree with the anons that are saying her monitors colors are problably fucked. …or either her eyesight in general.

On my previous laptop something about the magenta/red scale was a bit fucked up. I would espically notice it when I either used other computers monitors or in my phone (if looking at the same picture.)
I also was aware when I was trying to color something pinkish/hot pink HUE and it would just look like regular red no matter how far up the red-magenta slider i went. Then once i got on my phone to see the drawing, i could see the pink that was suppose to be there.
Thing is, it wasnt that extreme of a difference in range.

Holly may have her moniters colors so fucked up where nothing looks as she intends it to be. It could explain why everything either looks too muddy/unsaturated/too saturated/piss yellow filtered/yikes in general.
Again there is also the chance since she has super bad dyslexia, she may have color blindness too.

The bodies look pretty damn good for Holly, same with the faces (my poor wrath) mind you hats where this stops, it might be the best piece and best fanart she’s done in the last two years but it’s still not great innof itself, but at least she can tell who the characters are!
The composition, the colouring hurts and I hate that blue she could have done a different shade of red or maybe a reddish purple to keep with the colour theme the blue looks so weird and washed out it doesn’t sit well with he rest, the characters are all smushed together in weird ways like it’s supposed to look like one of those manga spreads where it shows off all the characters but all the heads and bodies are the same size and floating together instead

No. 673154

i’m sure she has at least a few fans who would be willing to do it for her and would be much better than she is, especially considering that she’s doing comics and not, say, a novel or something. for most ppl, proofreading a few comic pages could be done in less than 30 min, actually. she could even get away with barely paying them anything if she had to pay them at all. brownie points to her if she figures this out and gets it done. it would at least fix one of the most glaring mistakes in her comics.

I did and i thought the point is she made one guys face 'blue' (though it's purple) as a test and she's thinking about making the whole thing that color - so it's not meant to blend in.

But the rest of our discussion is about why she said blue when it's not blue (so is her monitor fucked) and you're also saying it's blue -but you mean blue 'added to red' (purple). Maybe she meant that too.

No. 673439

Well it’s like she dropped the opacity on a really pale blue and ran it over the red and it didn’t make a proper purple but a washed out grey pink/blue? Like if it had a noticeable purple tone to it i think it’d mix better than this because it looks really muddy and grey

Holly really needs to learn the triangle arm thing for better proportions. Every time she draws someone with their arms folded it ends up being too long.

You're just splitting hairs at this point. Most of the artists I follow make 'banners' like this right before a con to let fans know where they will be at. It's not supposed to be a print quality piece to show their talents.

Im not the anon that goes to Rmcad but imma stop you right there. What you get from art schools is exactly what you put in. I go to a state school that has limited art classes, but that doesn't mean i'm getting a shit education in art. If you combine the things that you learn from school, online tutorials, and actual practice (not the kind that Holly does) it doesn't really matter which school you go to - especially for an undergraduate program.

No. 675554

I strongly disagree. There is a huge difference between going to an 'art school' like Art Institutes and going somewhere like Calarts. From what we've seen from Holly's art assignments, I'm willing to bet that RMCAD is closer to Art Institutes level than Calarts.

Also there is no point of paying more than 20k a year to a private art college if I can get the same or comparable education by self study. The only way I could ever justify paying that much for an art college is if the professors, alumni or even the name of the college itself would help be secure a paid art position later on in life. Otherwise it is completely pointless shelling out so much money for a sub-par education.

RMCAD anon here. Seconding this. They're a meh art school, but if you put a lot in you can get a lot out of it.

RMCAD actually has the best illustration degree in Colorado. Their animation program isn't very great, and their fashion program sucks. RMCAD is also cheaper for CO residents than for transplants, and the online program is less than half the cost of the on-ground one.

However, I only go to RMCAD because I have to live in CO for family reasons. Under better circumstances, I would have gone to SCAD or Ringling.

There's one illustration prof in particular who kicks ass, but I'm not naming him here for his sake.


I say if you have the discipline and the connections, you don't need an art degree. However, some people need a structured environment in which to acquire those things. Networking with other artists is the most valuable thing about art school imo.

No. 676029

I doubt Holly actually got accepted to Calarts. If she was a much better artist, though, I would totally believe her story.

I personally know a guy whose CGI animations got him accepted, but he had to drop out after the first year because it caused him to accrue $70,000 in debt.

"Being in debt until I'm dead" and "Not going to THE BESTEST EVER ART SCHOOL" is not an easy choice. Art degrees are barely necessary to begin with, what the fuck makes you guys think shelling out 280,000 for a SUPER SPESHUL CalArts degree is a good financial decision?

No. 676035


No one except for maybe one idiot here said that it was. Just that it maybe makes networking easier, but even then it's not a guaranteed investment.

Even now she's wasting her time with RMCAD. she obviously thinks she's ahead of the cirriculum and thinks little of it (it's not helping with her inflated ego either),

some of the courses she seems to be taking are very basic or fundamental, but she's probably finishing her degree up out of obligation more than anything (I believe she mentioned that in an older vlog).

No. 676039


It's pretty hilarious that she thinks that, because though RMCAD isn't exactly chock full of amazing artists, most of the student work I've seen is STILL 20-50% better than her crap. She's delusional.

But it turns out I was in a class with Holly in the semester in that just ended. It was a painting class, and boy howdy, did her work SUCK. Easily some of the worst art on the critique threads. Here's some insider milk.

I mean, if she's posting a sentence, then you'd think she could at least Google the proper spelling of words like "existence" and not use text speak like 'idk'. The first thing they teach for online classes is usually about spell checking your submissions and having proper grammar…

I'm shocked that she didn't fail out of the class. The oil painting one is a bit harder to instantly detect, but the top paintings with the cow are so obviously digital.

>submitting an actual Photoshop filter in for an assignment
I’m shittin’ at the audacity. Also, man, I hope those three at the top left are supposed to be thumbnails, because they (and the cow especially) look like they were done in 15 minutes tops.

These actually bum me out because of how little effort is put into them. Like, she needs to take a break from art and reenergize or something.

No. 676123

You can really tell how little effort she puts into her classes. She isn't utilizing the opportunity to learn that come with having assignments that are literally set up to teach you through your own effort. She is just going to that school to come out with a degree so she can say she has one, not to learn from the work they give her.

No. 676126

if it wasn’t somehow obvious before, it definitely is now that Holly’s taking classes for the wrong reasons. Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t a creative/art degree a bit different from most other degrees, in that when it comes to getting a regular job in that field (like an artist for instance), your proficiency in that field will outweigh the “degree” you have? Maybe that doesn’t apply as much to Holly since she wants to be a freelance artist. She will definitely regret this decision to do school just for her mom’s personal satisfaction in the future though, especially if she’s in a lot of debt. I’m speaking from experience as someone who went to college for a year before realizing I didn’t want to be even further in debt just to do something I hated. It’s a common enough situation nowadays that I’m surprised Holly hasn’t come to that conclusion yet (unless there are extenuating circumstances).

No. 676132


Nah, no one cares about an art degree. You might as well be burning the cash you paid to get that piece of paper. At the end of the day, it's what you put in to your own efforts to learn the skills you need. Art is a very independent sort of field, and to be able to work it, you need to demonstrate what you can do, not what degrees you have.

So she can skirt by on shit tier work and get ten art degrees, it wouldn't matter to anyone else except her guardian. It happens so often, people will go into a cheap school for an art degree just to say that they have a degree.

No. 676134

that's 100% normal for her tho. bigger paper, higher res, expensive tools - art degree is the next logical step. she's always wasting money on shit that she puts not effort into learning.

No. 676140


This is going to sound super harsh, but since she clearly doesn't give a shit about her school assignments and doesn't think she stands to gain anything from it, she should probably just get reported for academic dishonesty and get expelled for using fucking digital art on a traditional media assignment.

No. 676158

bet you guys anything that she broke it herself in some dumb way. why does she say “they don’t last that long nowadays”?? idk how long she’s had that printer, but it should be good for a few yrs at least if used properly and all that. also can’t believe that she can buy a new high quality printer just like that the moment her current one breaks.

Her teacher must be dispointed in her. It's really sad that she used her real name for her online persona. Any job that sees her will look away . Also I thought she loved traditional painting , why is she using digital for her assignments??

No. 676194


(RMCAD anon again) Well, I didn't even touch on the fact that all of these paintings are supposed to on STRETCHED CANVASES, not pieces of fucking paper.


I can't get into specifics but I am REALLY not in a position to be reporting other people for student conduct violations, lol.

Also, because she's not local, it would be VERY difficult for Student Affairs to investigate this (they would need to see the paintings in person, which is difficult if she isn't in Colorado).


My guess would be that the prof. didn't care enough to look into it. "Googling students" isn't in her job description, and this particular prof. teaches only like two classes anyway.


Seconding this. I always get my stuff printed at Fedex/Kinkos, or at RMCAD (there are some kick ass printers on campus).

No. 676195

She probably used digital because she failed to plan ahead and had no time to do the assignment traditionally.

No. 676206

Didn’t she mention that she didn’t like a specific teacher? The one that doesnt like blue or something. So I’m assuming since that piece is on here that its that teacher.

No. 676212

its worse than cow tipping it's fucking with someone's money (invested tuition etc.) and I would really urge people not to do that. It's very clear the first set of paintings are digital, no one's fooling anyone with those. Maybe she wrote in and said I'm sick - can I submit something though for feedback? The other one with the detail, is more dubious especially with students commenting about the technique lol. But maybe the school already gave her zero marks. OR maybe it's a really shitty cash for marks school and they said fuck the 'rules'. We don't know the situation but more importantly it isn't worth the potential negative karma snowball. Let her get her useless cereal box degree

No. 676215

If someone who took that class with her wants to complain I think they have every right to. By cheating she is devaluing everyone's grade in that class. I do however agree that random anons on this thread really shouldn't do anything in this matter since it has nothing to do with us.

No. 676217

yeah, i mean we rip holly a new asshole for some of the personal stuff she shares, but this is more private and involves other ppl (and she herself didn’t share it anyways). plus, like that one anon said, it’d be difficult to investigate and ultimately just kind of a waste of time unless someone in the class really wants it to happen.

I'm pretty sure she meant that her brother was hiding in the garage from cops. Holly's brother had been kicked out of their mother's house because of drugs. I believe he recently returned to living in the garage. Unfortunately it sounds like he might be going to jail for possession.

No. 676354

No. 676398

True but from what we know about him it sounds likely he got arrested for drugs.
Also Holly said it was a federal charge and drug trafficking seems like the most likely federal charge he would be charged with (really doubt the dude got taken in for piracy, counterfeiting or treason or violating security laws/interstate commerce laws) Then again Holly might be wrong about the federal charges.

Also wanted to add, if this guy was taken in for federal charges for drug trafficking there he is probably selling something a bit stronger than weed…

No. 676409

Does anyone have the source/screencaps of the zine reviews she's talking about here?

No. 676410

He could have, but he also could have not been. All depends on the area they live in and what the police will see has a “strong offence” or not, because in some places selling weed is just as bad as selling heroin or crack. And even if he was selling drugs that’s probably it, I doubt the guy was brawlin and trying to stab people or threatening Holly and her aunt, so I’m pretty sure whatever his charge is, its not going to be anything crazy. Probably weed and pills which is fuck all. (And off topic and only my opinion but I find most drug possession charges in the USA fucking ridiculous)

No. 676828

I can see the Cowbot Bebop print doing the worst, the anatomy and placement is so horrible on that one and making is a larger print will only show that off more. The Ghibli stuff and shitty BNHA stuff is the only things that will sell.

I wouldn't say anyone will want her OC stuff, it's not like she mega popular or anything, just infamous around youtube and tumblr.

No. 677681

A kid won't be traumatized for life from one glance at Holly's shitty gay porn, let's not exaggerate.

That said she shouldn't have it out to flick through, stickers over it or not it's still porn.

Ngl, I respect Monique more than many of the YTAC gang for actually speaking up against Holly (and Spechie).

No. 677700

idc for monique much. i do agree on the speaking out part though. i know a lot of artubers are actually friends, but it’s so shady how we know some of them lurk (maybe post too) in these threads and yet they’re constantly gushing on their “friends’ “ videos (not that encouragement is bad). it’s pree obvious it’s not only encouragement tho when it comes to holly. that alisa person told ppl to “shower holly in cash” and then someone else said something similar. wouldn’t u just say, “check out my friend’s art!” or something that doesn’t sound greedy af??

No. 677707

lil sanjapanon here, I had the chance to sort of stand at the table for a bit. She's already sold out of a few of the prints. Michie sort of whined-gushed about how Holly is getting more recognition than she is - not sure if she was actually upset or happy for Holly?

They are both taking commissions for $20, and Holly has copies of the MHA zine and the top book's cover is curled and she told me when I picked it up that it was just the display copy on top that was curled, but the ones underneath the display copy were also curled. So her book crafting is unsurprisingly shitty.

Seize IS censored with cat stickers, but I don't think it should be out and available for anyone to pick up. She should probably ask for ID and then hand the display copy after verifying probably?

No. 677723

How much is everything going for? I’m wondering if Holly will break even w/ her sales here

how does this work with the cat stickers? are they stuck over the printed pages or printed? I mean what a weird idea - is it so kids can buy it for the story? Or is it for adults to peel the stickers off lmao

She IS supposed to ask for ID before handing anyone anything that’s considered adult material. She shouldn’t have it out to begin with, censor stickers or no.

No. 677748

I know a lot of great artists selling there this weekend whose work is far more polished than Holly’s. My money is on Holly not having enough stock and selling maybe a couple copies of what she had. Since her printer crapped out “last minute”, she probably didn’t bother to try using a print service as a backup. Of course she doesn’t think things through. And I doubt she will be making a print run in the morning to restock like legitimate artists do when prints are low.

No. 677752

Still, people are apparently willing to pay actual money to buy this trash. Like why? The paper it's printed on is probably worth more than the art itself.

No. 677761

this may be a bit tin foil hat but I low key think holly purposefully made her prints oversized and brought a shit ton of things so that people only mostly saw her stuff over Michie's smaller prints and merch. Looking at the table you'd have to practically dig to find Michie's stuff.


Yeah no, I don't believe for a second Monique would just pm her about the situation if she could and leave it at that, Monique is and has always been about grandstanding and calling people out for attention. To make herself look good. And also way to go for possible cow tipping(not that it's a concern, we know Holly reads here, and so does she).

No. 677795

Totally off topic to current events of the thread but if you watch MichaelBePetty’s newest stream on YouTube (he makes content on Amberlynn Reid, everyone’s favorite cow) Holly can be seen donating through superchat. It’s amazing that she sees problems with ALR but not herself.

She donated $1.99 for anyone curious.

It was right at the beginning as the stream was starting. I don’t think she wrote a comment but I happened to catch her name pop up with a donation. I’m pretty sure it’s her since it was H.C.Brown that donated, and she regularly can be seen on ALR related stuff. I used to see her comment on her actual videos a few months ago, she’s been watching ALR for a while.

No. 677848

Hmm, Idk if any of you guys read the YT Artist thread, but somewhere semi recently Monique is caught being a snake. She has does lurk and post here (not sure if currently, but def in the past). Something happened where a YouTube artist (forgot which one, i think it was Kasey) found out that people were talking about her on Lolcow. Then Monique's ass came and told her that the people on this site are rude and have nothing better to do than talk shit about others…despite she herself posting/lurking here.

In short, Monique isnt as innocent as she seems. She likes to play both sides. I think its good she is calling BRown out but at the same time she is problably doing it because she lurks here and wants to get attention/praise from everyone.

No. 677859


that last part is literally what last anon said about Monique, she can't be trusted. She just wants brownie points where she can get 'em.

She shouldn't have made herself known, if she wanted to have her cake and eat it too, but instead she thought she was being bold by using her actual name.

We all saw this coming.

Holly doesn't care about the rules or whether or not minors will end up leafing through it, she only cares about how much she thinks she can get away with and how much money she can get out of it that's why it's out in the open like that. It's a beacon for fujos.

I've been to many a con and the whole 'censoring it with cats' whatever that means, I've never even seen. Artists are normally smarter about that shit so they don't grt kicked out and lose their earnings.

No. 677902

The cencoring with cats is stickers placed over dongs and sex stuff in the public copy to look at, all the other ones are sealed.

Tho from the sounds of >>677707 she wasnt asking for ID which is con rules, so I think that might be where she's about to get shit on.

No. 677966

I’ve seen people at various cons that allow 18+ work have a sign that says “ask me about my 18+ work”

She could literally have a sign or something that says “ask me about my 18+ yaoi” and fujos would eat that up. She absolutely does not need to have the comic out to attract that crowd.

Have a sign, ask for ID, have a copy ready to pass out. It’s her being lazy and not wanting to interact with people most likely. Also ignoring rules because it’s Holly of course.

the whole thing looks janky as shit. i don’t think she made her prints poster size just to get more attention than michie’s stuff tho. that’s a lil reach, considering she mentioned a looong time ago that she made her prints super big bc it was “better than standard size” or stood out more or some bs like that. doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. the only pieces i would consider worthy of larger than normal sizes are ones that have an extreme amount of detail, which holly’s don’t even come close to.

No. 678026

The only one I can see being worth the size is the bathhouse one from Spirited Away, but even then that one is only really good at a glance, when you examine it long enough you see the weird super lean and off perspective.

She probably had like only 3 of those anyway.

But boy howdy I'd love a print of pearl where it's just her staring off into space, dancing with a dark navy bg, that'd look good among all the other vibrant prints on my wall. /s

Almost all her prints have elements that are just dead center, and there's no sense of flow, or interesting composition, she just, smacks a character or theme right in the middle of the paper, and then draws everything around it as an afterthought.

Holly probably means she SOLD 1000 worth of items, not that she actually profited that much. Holly is a barely educated hick, don't trust her to know what words mean.

No. 679601

Can confirm this statement. An acquaintance of mine that was tabling there made much more than the amount Holly claims she made, and their following is nowhere near what she has.

I will also add that San Japan's location happens to be very good for an anime convention (don't really feel like getting into the logistics of why atm), so she theoretically should have made a lot more profit if she played her cards better.

No. 679618

Following barely matters in artist alley. She may have 100k+ subs but how many of them live in Texas? It's not like Vidcon where people show up for the creators. At anime cons no one is showing up for specific artists. Holly's lucky to have made as much as she did with the small selection she showed up with.

No. 679657

Assuming she did. That 500 gap is WAY too worrysome. Unless she maybe means that those 500 are not only hers but it's what was raised for the fanzine?
I agree with other anons that she doesn't know what "profit" is and just uses it for the total she raised without considering production costs, general expenses and stuff.

No. 679668


I get the sneaking suspicion that she had not been taking inventory in what she sold

And I agree with previous anons that spewing out a random number to show off your earnings on Twitter is tacky, but she's always showing off how much she makes and how much she spends so that's nothing new.

No. 679669

It's a drop in the bucket considering travel, hotel, merch production, the zine, table cost, etc.

as far as anyone can tell leading up to now, she technically hadn't made a dime back because she's careless.

She wasted time and money, then had the nerve to whine about running out of time and rushing the zine artists.

No. 679672

I'm really hoping the 500 difference is because of the zine but I really doubt Holly is super interested in making sure the zine artists get their pay.

No. 679674

I wonder if that's before or after her expenses, because that's basically 0 profit considering all the shit she bought prior .

No. 679675

It sounds like takings, not actual profit. I do tables in a different country and make twice that without having anywhere near her following (also agree with anon - following doesn’t mean a lot when it comes to mass sales) and considering we get so much less in terms of attendees I’d be disappointed if I were her. She can’t possibly have done a full stock count and worked out her profit in her head, and the margin of error is huge! It’s gotta be takings/gross profit.

No. 679678

if you get twice that much in takings with no following, why then do you think what she calls profit is takings? Wouldn't your fact suggest that her takings would likely be a higher number and this would actually be her estimate of profit?

No. 679686

NTA but given Holly's poor money management and weird reasoning, to me she just picked the wrong word.
Plus she didn't print so much stuff to begin with and I doubt her seize comic sold that much, especially when she was banned from showing it.
She had a few prints, some stickers and a couple of books; and her art is nothing to die for, so I would believe the 1000/1500 being the takings.

No. 679691

She brought only 25 prints, which means even if she sold them all (which she didnt) she'd only make $375. No idea how much other shit she brought or for how much but she would've had to bust fucking ass to get to $1000 in takings, let alone profit. Her con expenses were easily 2k or more - there was a Google doc of her spending in one of the threads including con stuff. I'm positive she's just misusing words as always.

Even if she did somehow manage to make 3 grand total she's going to immediately throw it away on stupid shit she will never use so it'll be like she never profited in the first place.

Pretty sure she split the tabling fee with TwistedDisaster (and possibly some other fees) but even with that she would had to have ~60 customers paying ~$25 each to make $1500 yet alone have $1500 after accounting for expenses.

i grew up in a not very wealthy family so for example i only buy a new laptop or phone if the other completely broke
seeing all this makes me lowkey mad bc i watch her videos and vlogs and i never saw her using these expensive things more than a couple of times
why does she even need to buy the pro ver of tv paint if shes not even gonna use 4k export? i only saw her doing animatics and thats it. maybe she posts animation on her patreon idk but this is such a waste of money
she could do the same thing downloading a cracked ver of paint tool sai and exporting the frames to windows movie maker or something
she needs to understand that buying expensive shit wont make her better at art

Holly doesn't buy anything used or tries to plan out her supplies, it's always what she WANTS vs what she NEEDS

Holly doesn't even do animations OR animatics anymore because it was too much work and people kept giving her pointers on how to make her animations nicers and more structured and instead she flipped her shit and gave up, after wasting ALLL that money. Have we heard or seen anything recent about that stupid kitchen animation she went on with for months?

I said takings because no one knows their profit that quickly until there’s a full stock count and tax deductions taken off.
Like another anon said - following doesn’t count for much in the con scene. My following isn’t small, but it’s not as big as hers by even half and I get a few visitors of my work - but even if I had 100k subscribers not all of them would show up? It’s a case of if you’re in the area type thing. Unless you’re a celebrity you’re not going to draw people in to just come and visit you and you alone.
She had no stock, barely any high end priced stock (no prints although idk how much her comics were) and her art is weak in the whole big picture of convention artists. So that’s why I think it’s takings.

No. 679826


you numbnut it's not about being salty or jealous, it's calling her out that she repeats this stupid fucking cycle of "I have no money, I hate it my life is horrible I can't make good art" to "LOL LOOKIT ALL DIS MONEY I MADE IM GREAT I'M THE BEST ARTIST EVER" then blows all the fucking money on stupid shit she never uses again, and goes right back to bitching and moaning she has no money.

I honestly can care less with how much money she make/has, there's nothing wrong with girl making that coin but when she blows all that quick made cash on art programs, book presses, printers on top of printers, super expensive sketchbooks, iPads and the like, then a week later just stops using it and bitches she has no money.

Ofc its not anyone problem if you are poor but you do understand that she always go on this shopping spree and then complains that she has no money? She has the mentality that if she has the most expensive art thing she will magically draw better or something

She is half assing her classes just to have a piece of paper that tells the she has a degree and spending thousands of dollars on that. I never hear holly talking something good about the classes on her vlog, she is always complaining

If she really didn't have any money she wouldn't spend all this on useless shit. It would be more smart to get a business degree or something to have a stable income and do art as a side job and help her and her family bc we can see her college classes are not helping at all with her art.

Holly Brown and Michie are both examples of low tier artists who have found niche popularity online that goes to their head, then they sign up for Artist Alley thinking they are good enough to make a lot of money.

They're looking through a bigger lens than their popularity actually is. The real test really is going to an artist alley because then, a lot of your own merits are put on display for what kind of artist you are and how you present yourself.

she must be really tired. that bottom ask was even more grammatically incorrect than usual. also, i really hope she isn’t developing an eating disorder. most ppl want a flat stomach, but it’s not always possible (while remaining healthy) depending on your body type. hell, we all thought she was fat af just from her selfies, but then she showed some of her body and it turns out she’s probably not at an unhealthy weight?? she has a really negative self-image that I’m not sure will change just from losing a few more lbs. combined with the fad diets and poor sleep schedule, it seems like a recipe for disaster.

But she can help her self image even just a little, it's not that damn hard. She can take all that money she busts into things she doesn't use and use it for a but of self car.

Get her mane taken care of, styled, a proper color that suits her, practice some make up from tutorials from girls with a similar face shape, bit up some better skin care habits.

I mean it's not like the girl has to be gorgeous or anything but she can still look pretty for 'her', she'd just rather waste all her time being miserable and complaining instead of trying to fix even the smallest, she has the resources and the funds (apparently) she can invest a little time on herself if she wanted too, but complaining gets more asspats.

No. 680475

She does not know or utilize the basics of figure drawing at all. You can tell she doesn't base her sketches off a gesture line or any line of balance. Even if she occassionally would get the proportions, muscles etc. Correctly, everything would be wonky because the characters lack the basic structure and balance. Also these are not realistic at all, she extends, rounds and sharpens all the wrong parts (so everything is asymmetrical af). She's going for the exaggarated cartoon look, but what makes such a style look good is the knowledge of real anatomy and at least some level of aesthetic balance as well.

It's kinda shocking how her studies in the bottom half of the page look really good for once, and then you look up to her "original drawings" and it's…. still like that. From their poses it's painfully obvious she's trying to make them look sexy/appealing but the stilted posing and inaccurate anatomy give the exact opposing feeling.

Like, what the hell is going on with Momo's hips? They look detached from her torso. And on the right, in addition to the usual shitty mitten-hands, the green Momo's jacket makes absolutely no sense. Also, god, I just noticed the weird thigh gap she has, it looks like her tibia is broken.
As for Kirishima, he suffers from a classic case of Holly BRown™ girafe neck, but in a different way than usual: instead of the head being too far from the shoulders, now it's the neck going way too deep into the torso, which makes his pecs abnormally low. Also, for someone obsessed with dorito shaped things, Holly sure doesn't know how to draw the basic dorito-like buff dude body type, her "buff" dudes just look like square lumps with random lines drawn on them. Another day passes and Holly still doesn't know how to use references.
At this point I'm almost convinced she has never seen an actual live human being before, and the person representing her at conventions isn't her, but some robot or double. It's the only rational explanation for her being this fucking bad.

Another zine artist here, and I'm fucking pissed. I mean really fucking pissed. And i am totally down for us setting up a zine artist discord so us artists feel less lost and alone about this whole thing cause that's exactly what ive been feeling these past few months.

I literally went from defending this bitch to ready to virtually deck her ass into next week and ive been trying. to be so nice. But i feel like I'm about to explode. Con's over and aint shit in my inbox. Idk how much I'm getting paid, idk what the hell happened to the store cause we haven't gotten an email from her since july. I feel like I just threw my 5 dollars into the void. I'm so fucking pissed.

I wasnt even a huge fan of her, i just happened to be subscribed to her when she announced the zine and i was like "cool i love mha!" jesussssss

I dont regret doing the zine cause i love the piece that i submitted and im DEFINITELY gonna be selling it as a print, not even gonna change the colors cause i love the palette.

I just dont understand why she had to do EVERYTHING herself. She shouldve had a team of two or three people helping her, one person for artist communication, one person for better cover design and promotion on the barren wasteland thats the truecolorszine tumblr, and she can be her own little factory and make 100+ books by hand if she wanted. Im just. So tired.

Probably best for all the zine artists to go ahead with the discord and talk things out there, smartest thing for you guys would have been to make that when she first announced who was going to be in the zine so you could all keep track of everything and Holly, and seriously get PDF files for everyone so they don’t have to deal with her anymore, she shouldn’t hold those for herself that’s bullshit

Keep us updated with what happens tho, if you get anything out of Holly or if it continues to go tits up still milk for us seeing how long she’s pushed this off for

And for everyone saying the artists should have know better, stop. Most of them are/were young fans of Holly so they obviously had the damn blinders on, and it’s not like everyone that follows her on YouTube or twitter follow her tumblr and visaversa, they most likely don’t read these threads so how was any of her supposed to know? They went off blind faith and it was fucking stupid but hey, they all learned a valuable lesson and will most likely do research before working with someone again

You could always just lead by asking if they are involved in the zine still first. It doesn't have to be that hush hush. At least that's what I figure… Approaching those that dropped also might give some milk we're unaware of. But maybe that wouldn't be good for the artists involved.

Bullshit Holly has already said why she doesn’t visit doctors, she’s expressed many times why she doesn’t like doctors and it’s a stupid reason but now she visits them and she had her X-rays and blood work all done and come back in a few hours? Did she do this last week because she never mentioned anything about it then, and we all know she would.

And also, again crohns doesn’t make you throw up blood, ulcers and stomach cancers do, but not crohns, something that has to do everything with your bowels and not your stomach

Does she acid reflux and think those two are somehow the same? Go actually visit a doctor Holly, they know what they are talking about you don’t

No. 680926

I don’t get why she’s so against a discord group. She acts like the artists will go wild and post random shit in there constantly or get into fights or something. That, and she sits at her computer all day for her job and school anyways. I don’t think it’s too difficult to leave discord open and check in twice a day, maybe set up some rules if need be.

Oh wait, but then she’d have absolutely no excuse for her lack of communication and couldn’t keep doing the “the email must have been sent to the wrong address/got lost??/messed up!!” shtick.

I feel so bad for the zine artists. I mean, you don’t expect a semi-popular YouTube artist (or any artist hopefully) to put together a huge zine and then scam everyone. Especially with how quickly Holly deletes so much of her past milk and how it’s only brought up in these threads. If I hadn’t seen these threads before she announced it, I would’ve been interested in participating. Also, some people are going to say that she hasn’t scammed the artists yet, but lesbi real, she’ll be taking the bulk of the money for shit reasons and if she somehow gets called out on it, she’ll say it was a mistake and still keep the cash, giving ppl more dumb excuses as to why. She’s not smart, but that doesn’t excuse the mismanagement of other people’s work and money.

If I had the time and resources I totally would do something like a content cop type thing, but I do hope someone at least brings forth good evidence and make sure to not be too petty

Because she's laaaazy, and doesn't want whatever she says in the group to be used against her/end up here. She said so herself, that she doesn't like interaction, either. Don't know why in the ungodly fuck she'd make a massive zine if she knows this about herself but oh well.


She probably read here recently.

No. 681022

A zine should be a mod's number one priority, it's akin to running and fulfilling a kickstarter, whether it's for profit or not. From what I see as an outside observer, she just wanted an extra book on her con table because she couldn't finish any of her other shitty comics on time. She made money off the backs of 80 artists, she will give herself a huge cut for labor (which would be fine if she was a responsible mod, which she isn't…) The books seem to be sloppily put together too. And no merch rewards!! For a zine this big that's just foolish, a missed opportunity to increase profits. The artists kissing her ass see her high follower count and ignore her incompetence. Some might feel sorry for her since she likes to victimize herself all the time (shitty family situation, no money, stress) but we all have problems of our own holly, you're not the only one with a hard life trying to create art. It's not an excuse to act like a complete fool.

im the same anon that wanted to put together a discord and tbh i pretty much almost did, i was just about to start inviting artists when she messaged me apologizing and finally sent me my tracking number. now im just tired. i got too much going on to be dealing with all of this shit, its taking up too much of my day and its fucking up my overall mood. if anyone else wants to make it thats cool ill join but im putting this to rest for the time being.

Zine artist. Dont let anyone make you feel bad about how you feel. Or dont let some of these dumbass anons say "u should have known better"(anons on here are just spergy and retarded at times). At the end of the day its about the principles. Holly asked for labor (art) and now she has to pay the money for said labor. Make a discord or a callout post, fuck that bitch and her stress.

Like fuck her, and fuck this whole situation, she needs to be properly paying you for time spent and lost and making up with product she promised. How badly do you think she'd be freaking out if this was the other way around?

This zine was a scam that's she was hoping to get away with.

It was hilarious when she was shitting on petty things like monthly art challenges, it was funny watching her shoot herself in the foot with the millions of projects she put on herself, hell, it was amusing seeing her flounder at SanJapan.

But she managed to scam ~80 artists out of their time and effort and is looking to get away with it and cover her ass. She's looking forward to letting this botched project fall into obscurity, and she's counting on her fans to help her bitch and moan at anyone who dissents.

Im sorry I didnt start the holly revolution yall wanted, but my only gripes are with her lack of communication. i literally dont give two shits about hollys reputation, i just wanted answers. before i set up the discord i gave it one last try to communicate with holly and it worked. we got another update video which i havent watched yet.

granted she played the victim card the whole damn time she apologized and im still salty about it, and im not dropping this completely, not by a long shot, im just having trouble justifying to myself spending time organizing this and bringing all these artists together one by one to this discord when shes already finally addressing the things i had issue with as an artist.

i agree she shouldnt get away with this kind of behavior, so ill still ask around whenever i can and see if the other artists are still interested in a discord. if yall have any ideas on what further actions we as artists should take im all ears.

There’s lots of stuff you all can do individualy or as a group, that’s why we keep suggesting the discord for you guys because it will help you all keep everything concise and in one place like us here.

>>681040 anon is so right. You're all just going to get a small fraction of her con profits while she pockets the money for all future sales of the zine and when people ask about getting another cut from ongoing sales she'll say she paid you all out of pocket initially bcos the zine made no moneyzzzz gaiz she's just trying to make back what she sacrificed to give you all your $20

Sorry, super late, but I wanted to answer this question because I think the answer valuable information.

The classes she took this summer that I know of (Digital Illustration and Landscape Painting) are classes people typically take as sophomores; they're not specification courses, but they're also not prerequisites for anything, so they're the kind of classes you can take whenever.

What I can say is that if she was "just finishing up" her degree, she would already be working on portfolio reviews and specifications (in her case sequential classes, of which I think there for three or four). So the classes she's taking are basically early intermediate classes; they're some of the first non-foundations illustration majors usually take, along with Perspective and Mastering the Pencil.

As for additional milk, there's not much I can provide. I had another class (digital illustration) with her, but it was long enough ago that the class forums for it are gone. I do recall one of her pieces getting blasted in critiques for having too many distracting wood textures and for being poorly composed.

I wont be able to supply more milk until next summer, because that's the only time I take online classes.

100% OT: I now know why I thought she was fat: Because she films so close up I never saw her neck, which is skinny. The width of her face was deceiving. But it too may not even be that wide in person, without the short focal length bulging it out. If it is wide then she could put her hair forward and reduce that effect. Even in the facecam vlogs she looks pretty when she smiles so.. i dunno, maybe she looks pretty normal/good in person

No. 681305

What bothers me about this is that when you table in artist alley you are given rules and sometimes even sign an artist contract, and Holly is acting like being asked to follow the rules she already said she'd follow is somehow infringing on her rights. She just comes across a little inane here complaining about not being able to slap cat stickers over penises to display her pornography because parents should keep their teenage kids on leashes or some shit. It's pretty ridiculous. Not everyone wants to see people trusting and covers in jizz and dildos.

>and I NEED, well.. I don't need I want a better printer because I like larger prints
jesus what a child. It's like she never has to adult one day of her life
>says her family is white trash and psychotic
It's like she thinks she better than them or something
>I'm trying to clean my room get my life together
at least you're trying that much
>I'll put the artist on screen (for the seriously amazing Hamilton artist)
never puts the artist on screen, nice Holly, you put like none of them on screen
>So someone called the constaff and told them about my NSFW display and they told me I couldn't show it at all, even though it was censored.
CORRECT HOLLY! Because it was stated in the rules that you were to keep all 18+ NSFW content away from minors and have a sign or card that read "Ask me for my 18+ content"

It's not that fucking hard to follow the rules. It was your own damn fault so don't get upset or call it drama when you should have seen this coming a mile away you dumbass

So Holly is a spoiled child who never uses her brain, why am I not surprised.

she's an early intermediate artist at best, anyway. but it's funny that she's insisting she's about to finish when she's clearly not even close.

she's not fat, but she has really unfortunate features. her face is literally potato shaped, her eyes are too close together, and overally she just has really fleshy features that age her. not her fault she looks that way but her diet/eating habits, "stress" and the fact she refuses to take care of herself makes her look worse.

bitch, sorry ain't worth nothing. you didn't send out copies to the artists so that they could have sold the zine by themselves. you cheated them out of money you wanted to claim for yourself. at this point, there's no way that anyone can give you the benefit of the doubt re: this. btw, laughing as you say how truly Truly TRULY sorry you are isn't helping.

(also her attempt at making people feel bad about her covering the fees is so transparent, it's ridiculous)

Worth noting that a lot of people do chuckle or laugh when they're nervous or upset, but like, when she was describing what had happened to Michie in the vlog, even I was like, jfc be serious for a damn second, like she really wasn't all "there" for that explanation, shes so self absorbed I s2g.

No. 681354

Sure Holly, educate people on how to raise kids, since you’re apparently an expert in this field too.
Honestly though it’s not like people are doing something bad in pointing out something that’s against the RULES you agreed with when you booked your booth.
It’s not parents being petty, it’s what the CONVENTION asked to do, because guess what? Apparently they’re slightly more practical than you and they know well that grabbing your kids’ hands 4 days nonstop in a place that’s designed to be safe for them (hence the fucking rule) it’s not doable.
Kids are curious, they run around and you can’t blame them for liking anime. Most conventions here don’t even charge tickets for kids up to 10 years; if they wanted the con to be more “mature”, they’d have a ticket or straight up not allow that kind of audience.
But sure, Holly, you know better; you shit on basic ass rules that are common sense and suddenly you’re a victim.
A kid that’s a big fan of yugi oh, Totoro, Ojamajo Doremi or whatever they like has any right to visit a convention that’s listed as ALL AGES.
I mean sure, there’s a sticker on the thing, but it’s still there and it’s open for everybody to see. I’m pretty sure everybody and their mom picked at “non age appropriate” content out of curiosity despite the disclaimers, so don’t act dumb like “it’s their fault they can’t read”. Damn, one can even be distracted and open it, not noticing the sticker.
Follow the frikkin rules, holly.

On another topic I am really infuriated at how she talked about the molestation because it sounded like she just found it funny. I know people can act awkward when they don’t feel comfortable talking about something but… that smiling, dismissing and the choice of words made her look like really bad.
She sounded really happy though, like she seriously enjoyed her time and I am so happy for this.

Nosy af anon here, mainly glanced at the calculations. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that not only was she off by one zine, but she also didn't include her sales from the zines sold at San Japan. So she potentially owes artists more money.

No. 681420

i am going to laugh my fucking ass off. yes, she didn't include the san japan copies in it. at this point i am sorry, but even for a 22 year old, this is not mere stupidity any more, it has to be intentional/testing the waters if she'll get away with it

No. 681422

isn't the idea that these are the tictail sales? now the new store is open, there will obviously be new sales and so future payouts

No. 681444

it makes no sense for her not to add in the san japan sales. like, paypal takes a fee for every transaction. why would you do 160+ transactions, when 80+ would 1) be easier for you, and 2) probably save you money (bc she's so nice, she's covering the transaction fees herself /sarcasm). i did a post in the unnumbered 'porn can save my career' thread, and was operating on 79 transactions (80 minus holly but apparently there were more than 80 artists??), and that will add up to more than 20 dollars in transaction fees.

No. 681452

are you arguing to me that this is the final amount of money, when she just reopened sales on a new store she made?

No. 681453

uhm didnt she say some artists ordered MULTIPLE like copies which were SO MUCH EXTRA WORK for her, but in the excel table, i only see quantities of TWO tops??
or is this just a table for sales in general?
like… doesn't she have all the artists email addresses so she could've sent the link via mail and not post it under a youtube video? wtf

No. 681459

that's not what i'm saying. not releasing the amount of money she has already made at san japan is just extremely fishy to me, and the more time passes between sj and the next time she updates the artists with sales figures, the more likely it is something gets 'lost'

with her track record, i find it extremely fishy that she is going to only use part of the total sales to calculate what the artists are going to receive.

think of it this way: you have a partner and the two of you make jewelry, they make the designs, you craft them and sell them. when your partner wants to know about the money, you tell them you're going to give them their share of the proceeds of the online store and even send them the receipts for that, yet you don't mention the amount you have made selling at last week's craft fair at all. still sound fair and legit?

no, I was assuming that she would put the con money in with the next payout she will have to do, since she has reopened the store. The con sales do go dubiously unmentioned in the video.

Maybe she should release an actual apology on her main channel, like a "hey guys I messed up im sorry, so all her fans know instead of it just being private video, like yes she said sorry to the artist but I'm sure not many saw this?
It would be more transparent to put it on her main channel where all her followers can see and understand if someone calls her out why they did it?
Idk if this makes sense
But I hate it when youtubers put apologize on their second channel instead of their main channel.

No. 681572

I'm one of the artists, and I'm angry that she's been so lazy about the zine but mostly I'm really confused about how she's handled things from the beginning. It would have been perfectly understandable if she took a chunk of the profits for herself considering the time she's putting into it as long as she was upfront about that. And honestly, zines are only printed at home most often because they're made with cheap materials and not being widely circulated. She should have outsourced the printing, it's absolutely ridiculous that she's doing it from home when she only has one (apparently unreliable) printer and tons of backed up orders.

This was way too ambitious for her first ever collaborative project. She's saying she's not going to do it again because she doesn't like working with other people, but that's only because she handled it so irresponsibly that now she has 100 artists breathing down her neck about it.

No. 681578

i don't understand what you want her to apologise to her fans for? what do they care? that's not what they subscribed for. What she should do on her main channel is ignore that there were false starts and Promote the Fuckin Zine positively like "Hey look we made a good thing and it's for sale now!" Just hurts the artists to wreck its brand by saying negative stuff

No. 681589

Zines with this many artists usually pool their work together and send it to a print shop for a bulk order and each artists just pays their portion and is sent like 20-50 copies to circulate on their own. What Holly did makes absolutely no sense in terms of artists personal circulation (having artists send in orders to her instead of having a pre decided amount per artist) and being free to make and sell as many copies as she personally wants to. Not to mention making 300+ copies by herself at home with varying quality. She's so stupid…

No. 681603

its obvious the main issue here is that she wanted to utilize her fancy printer and become a bookmaking factory, but somehow didnt realize a channel with 326k subs would mean hundreds of books to make. All of the stress she complains about is on her because she didnt have to make them by hand, she wanted to be the only one running this thing, and she didnt have to include this many artists.

Also each book for her is $1.8 + the time it takes to make them and artist copies are $1.8 + $3 shipping. I'd say financially it balances out, but it doesnt make it any less unnecessarily difficult and frustrating to get your hands on artist copies

No. 681625

No. 681630

She's making shitty fucking tutorials again? Great, not we can laugh at her fail the basics of everything and try to teach that to others.

Why isn't she announcing the zine on her main channel tho? Why isn't she advertising it on her tumblr, insta and twitter like crazy right now? Like iI know it's because she's already backed up too much but if she didn't want to do this anymore she needs to give up the rights to the project, hand over all the files to someone more reliable and let them find a bookpress and release it. She's fucked this up so hard so many times it's crazy she's still trying to get away with it.

She shouldn't be making any money off this shit after everything is said and done.

No. 681633

She's too stubborn to admit she can't make the books herself, and if she really promoted it they might actually get a nice chunk of sales.

No. 681635

Right off the bat I've never seen an artist make their line art transparent in the way that she does it. She's using the paint bucket and inverse selection to re fill in the blacks, but in my opinion this would just destroy all the pencil strokes and texture of the paper. Why not go to layer styles and hit "overlay" like literally every other artist I know?

No. 681639

She can't do things the easy way, she has to do it HER WAY and make it look as shitty as possible the entire time. Holy doesn't need masks or overlays, shes a PROFESSIONAL

But OT for me I don't understand people who make sketches irl then use that as the line work to color on PC, like why not redo the lines? Doesn't that give you another nicer chance to redo and fix more mistakes you might have missed? Make it look more fluid and flowing? Lines like that stick out so sorely, like most of Holly's work

I'm so confused with this girl honestly. It's like she has the ability to make something that looks good but not the taste to know when it looks good.

No. 681652

None of this looks good, one page is a clusterfuck of shitty sketches that should be left in your class sketchbook for the teacher to critic and grade (Holly gets 5%, 5% was for effort as in she drew something)The second page has two drawing you might see in an artbook but the anatomy and perspective is so off they look ready to float off the page, and blank white space for them to float in.

Holly doesn't know what aesthetic or placement is does she? I'd flip through this book and laugh that someone was dumb enough to sell this to the public.

No. 681655


Holly won't give it up because she needs another excuse to call herself 'busy'…

I wonder if she'd be the kind of person to go behind people's backs and take the zine to a professional printer without saying anything, just so she can have people out of her hair. I certainly wouldn't put it past her,

No. 681788

Friend, you might want to reconsider. Having lines on a transparent background is pretty common and it speeds up flatting time. Plus, you can change the colour of the line easily, and achieve softer effects using lighter colours for stuff that needs to be fluffier or give depths changing the colour of the backgrounds applying aerial perspective.
What absolutely drives me insane is how amateurish is at doing simple things. She has no idea of which shortcuts to use and is over complicating simple processes like clipping.

It’s been over a month since I paid for my zines and I haven’t seen my books or any emails. I email her but I never get any responses. I think she’s only filling the customer orders and fucking off the artists in the book she isn’t friends with. I want to be paid for my part in the book too since it’s for profit and she “sold all the MHA” copies she had at that con this weekend.

No. 681909

This was her plan all along she even mentioned in a blog she didn't think artists were going to order so many copies for themselves. She also said in her latest blog that certain artist will get their copies first (in this case it was people who are mad at her).

No. 681920

Still shitty she did it in the first place, she should have dealt with the zine first and whatever she had leftover (if any) she could have used for the con, she fucked this up completely.

Shouldn't she have had all the orders that weren't fulfilled in a list already? Shouldn't she have had that list BACK when she first got the orders and kept note of who was sent their and who wasn't? She's asking for the artists to email her their orders AGAIN? Holly what the fuck are you doing?

holly’s entitled to her opinions, i suppose, but that doesn’t mean we can’t call her out for how fucking stupid she sounds. not to be that person, but her uneducated southern white roots really show when she tries to discuss anything about culture. i come from white trash too, but i don’t pretend that slave owners were in any way justified in what they did. i think that would be obvious to anyone who had even the most rudimentary glossing over of the history of black slavery. but whatever, if it doesn’t affect Holly, then it doesn’t matter, right? just like how she doesn’t want to be anywhere near lgbt protests or even live in a state where there’s a strong leaning towards a different political party than the one she aligns herself with.

Or maybe she was just super weak and let all that attention go to her head and took the bitchy route from there.

Geez she doesn't realize how young her audience is, to be talking about slavery like it was no big deal really shows how uneducated she is.
She needs to take a history course or something before opening her mouth. I'm suprised the sjws haven't called her out yet. Guess that's why she unlisted the video to.

No. 682392

So Holly has a comic about religion (even tho she doesn’t understand it) and it has themes of abuse, grooming and rape, she has Seize which is a book about rape, I don’t know what’s going to happen in PP because Holly won’t work on it, and now she has a new comic about slavery and rape

This is a.. running gag she has going or what?

No. 682396

Nah, she's just a Fujo who can't identify how terrible all the rape that's common in the genre is, even purely from a writing standpoint.

No. 682400

Like I understand dark themes like rape and slavery depending on the world and the character it can build a lot but when it’s every. Fucking. Thing. She. Makes.

It’s like she doesn’t understand why rape, molestation and slavery are serious topics and need to be treated seriously, if she just wants to make fucking fetish porn she needs to get fucking educated real fast because BDSM and kink doesn’t = rape comics till the end of time

No. 682401

making assumptions here, but i think holly's definition of "rape" is rather narrow, as well, therefore she doesn't see the problems in her stuff. aside from purgatory, where (i assume) it was meant to be disgusting, she has this idea that there's nothing wrong with coercing and manipulating a person into sex, when clearly, there is.

again, i am making assumptions here. but judging from her general attitude to "sjw shit", i wouldn't put it past her to not see the issue with a huge imbalance of power in a romantic relationship.

No. 682409


I don't think that's such a leap to reason. I'd even reason that it's probably a fetish of hers, but she doesn't explore that in her art in a constructive way.
Not here to armchair, but these are recurring themes in her projects. Even Clever Kitchen had aspects of it in just the way she designed the main kid…

I think she needs to be honest with herself about Paranormal Plague, because it's going at a snail's pace, nobody knows what it's about still, but oh, we sure do know what the sex lives of Herschel and Reese are like, so obviously we know where her priorities are.

No. 682414

She set Paranormal Plague up for faliure.

Nobody knows what's going on in it, and now that seize is out and she's only interested in shipping her 2 dudes, nobody's going to talk about the actual story or even be excited about Reese finally showing up (well, her edgy teen fans might, they eat her shit like it's a banquet). She overexposed them. I don't think she even cares about the actual story.

She kept going on and on and on ad nauseum about starting nsfw stuff for the longest time, she just wouldn't shut up about it, and now that she's finally doing it, that's all she's interested in making, which wouldn't really be a problem if her audience wasn't already like 12 (mentally or legally) and she actually knew anything about sex and relationship dynamics.

No. 682421

Watch her try to animate porn and talk mad shit about it tbh.

No. 682426

That’s the thing, I don’t think Holly has ever been in a relationship before let alone a sexual one. I almost honk she’s too afraid to watch normal porn and just stick to cartoon porn so she can more easily insert herself into the scenario seeing as she obviously doesn’t know what sex looks like, sounds like (trust trust) or feels like.

She really needs to go out and get a fuck buddy and a few friends to get all that pent up anger and sexual aggression

It might, she can have some time to herself, actually get a break from her ‘work’ to socialize. Like people watching and being around other humans does help improve your anatomy and understand basics way more of you actually pay attention

No. 682463

This is true. It helps with natural dialogue and expressions too. You gotta socialize to an extent if it isn't coming to you innately.

Also. I can't wait for her shitty writing in the slavery comic that explains the slavery as part of the elves culture. I have a feeling it'll be at least a little milky

I think it would honestly be less dumb if she owned up to what she was doing and just said, "these comics are about rape, rape is my fetish," instead of this retarded beating around the bush.

No. 682472

yeah it's the whole bending over backwards to justify her fetishes instead of owning up to them.

that's her thing though, she doesn't really 'own up' to much.

If she got called out like other artists do for the bullshit she pulls she'd be singing a different tune. Like, you would think by now more than one person would call her out for her "problematic" subjects and behavior.

No. 682475

Holly doesn't make comics about BDSM, or even gay porn. It's a fantasy generally detached from reality and I see this attitude with a lot of Fujos that being a creepy rapist is somehow cute/romantic/acceptable. I don't think she actually sees it as rape because none of her gay characters are fleshed out human beings.

I think making NSFW comics is a bad move for her because the only reason she can get away with it is because BL standards are below the surface of the earth, and most of her fans are 15 (physically or mentally).

No. 682498

Not saying it isn't a fujo staple (it def is) to have lovable rapist characters uwu but it also seems to just be younger socially inept people kink? You see it a lot on DA too with m/f pairs. It's like a disconnect from reality and complete sexual inexperience

No. 682554

Super OT blogpost but I actually do have a non consensual consent kink (I’m not a fujo tho surprisingly) and it has nothing to do with “wanting to be raped” it’s literally a degrading/submission thing for me, and it can only be with a person you trust with your life (so typically a longtime partner) and it’s not something you whip out after a month of dating yknow? Just because it’s a kink doesn’t mean it doesn’t have rules and meaning behind it and these girls seem to think that kink is a normal thing in gay relationships and it’s just not, it’s not even normal for het relationships it’s a very abnormal and dangerous kink

No. 682555

It sounds like you are a rational adult with a kink. There's nothing inherently wrong with that, it's the way that Holly tries to justify it as consensual and loving and cute when she writes it. Or how she seems to think being a gay/bi man goes hand and hand with rape, which is a gross stigma.

No. 682557

That’s the thing, like the ending to Seize was so weird and off putting, like Reese just magically knew Hershel likes nonconsent yet never gets consent but Hershel is okay with it because that’s his thing and he likes Reese now because he’s a cutie and all he did was drug and try to rape the guy like come on don’t you do that to your best friends too???????

No. 682562

that, and it wasn’t even a “hershel gave him consent before reese did the whole roleplay kidnapping thing, it just wasn’t shown in the beginning”, which is what she seemed to play it off as before the comic was released. no, hershel literally said, “if i’d wanted to stop you, i could have.” ??? so any rape or sexual assault could be stopped if the victim just chose not to let it happen?? wow, okay, good to know.

If I were her ass i would dedicate a few days to getting out all those orders and deal with all the zine stuff related so people could get off my ass.

No. 682754

Her entire roof!? That'll cost an average of 3k on the lower end, and she's looking to make that money from selling small art things on store envy? I don't think she's lying, she actually overshares too much of her personal life. She's delusional about her money making abilities though

No. 682763

Don't worry, I don't believe her either.

I was considering buying that elf rape comic when it comes out just to see how bad it is and to share, but after seeing how she's been handling people's private information (uploading it to a doc for a lot of people to see, letting addresses slip uncensored in videos, etc) I wouldn't trust her to keep any personal info safe.

No. 682773

I agree. She overshares, so would not be surprised if she actually does have to cough up money for the roof. Knowing her though, it could also be an exaggeration or mean something completely different.

No. 682790

she’s probably telling the truth, but i’d also like to stress the fact that she is incapable of saving money at all, much less putting some aside for emergencies every once in a while. yeah, it fucking sucks, but we know she isn’t paying for all of it by herself.

nitpicking a lil here; it wouldn’t sound so weird if it wasn’t for the fact that she begs for money all the time. lots of ppl have shit happen out of nowhere and thus have sales on their online shops in hopes of getting some more traffic immediately. they also mention the reason why, and even if it’s done for sympathy points, it’s alright bc it’s not like they do that all the fucking time (unlike holly) and complain about getting orders. i’ve never heard an artist complain about packaging stuff that ppl have bought from them before Holly. She shits on fast food and other minimum wage jobs, yet she also whines about having an online store. well, what the fuck do you want to do to make money, BRown? Your art skills aren’t even close to being good enough to make rape comics/fujo porn for a living.

No. 682856

The begging for money is exactly why I think she might be lying. Think back, every month there is something new she wants money for. Remember TV paint? People literally gave her money for that. She expected way more money after the con but now all that money is going to the artists. Between the roof and her sudden crohns it's the perfect sob story to make people look the other way from her growing pile of misdeeds. Then again yeah she overshares. Most likely the roof has a leak and needs a minor repair.

No. 682863


Heh, wonder what she wants this month.

Not gonna lie, seeing her spin her wheels and flounder about makes for good amusement. The con was an absolute flop and I highly doubt she's making as many sales on her shop. I wonder how long it'll be before she phases the Zine out of circulation…
I'll be sitting back watching all the dumb shit she's bound to purchase in the meantime.

No. 682911


Everyone is speculating on whether Holly has a rape fetish or not, but she definitely does. When killing/stalking (an unabashed rape fetish yaoi) was popular she was blogging about it CONSTANTLY and heavily identified with finding bdsm/noncon appealing. This was around the time when she inserted the rape scene into Purgatory, too, and the way she spoke about it in vlogs/live streams before it was published (now deleted/unlisted) made it clear that she was getting off on it. Her justification for why she included it in the comic kept changing as people realized it was kind of fucked up. Anyway. Holly was very public about getting off to killing/stalking and to rape/noncon in general and as much as she tries to scrub her image clear now, it's obvious that all the rape in her stories is completely intentional and for her own arousal.

All said, I don't think Holly identifies as someone who likes "real rape" and would probably defend herself against those accusations even though the stuff she writes is undeniably rape. I think she believes that her stuff is not "real rape" because she always justifies it by having the characters actually like it or give dubious consent after the fact or fall in love so it's all okay. Or make up stupid fucking elf slave universes to justify rape. The end result is the same, she's a shitty fujo with a rape fetish who wants to have her cake and eat it too.

like the porn is one thing but it's disgusting that she can't not let her fetishes seep into her sfw works and that's why people call her a fujo

sage for blogposting but at this point it's pretty much beyond debate imho

No. 682925

Fujos' only exposure to gay relationships is through shitty rape yaoi so it's not a surprise most fujos don't even recognize dubcon elements in the media they consume. Porn is a huge conditioning tool, fetishes can be immoral and no one really cares until someone commits a crime. Most of these fujos grow out of this fetish when they get into adult relationships, it's unfortunate holly is in her 20s and still thinks like a teenager. Maybe she'll never grow out it if she continues to make money from it.

No. 682997


Not to mention the fujo crowd seems to be very large so she definitely has a market, unfortunately. It doesn't matter how shitty her characters, stories or art is, really. What matters are the archetypes and hitting all those same notes that make up those same stories that she can get away with peddling to the same crowd.

The only hope is that maybe a chunk of her current crowd will be alienated and turned off from the themes that are becoming more and more pervasive.

And that she'll just lean entirely into the NSFW bullshit and leave YouTube because she can't post dicks there. She's been doing the "whoops can't show that cause it's got dicks in it" shtick more often and I guess that's just gonna be her little gimmick from here on out.

It all makes for good milk I suppose but personally speaking, I just want her to stop altogether,or get called out on. But whatever, dumpster fire is cool too. For when you're bored.

No. 683275


It's entirely possible she also does this for assignments, since online life drawing classes (which are horrible regardless of the school because life drawing is supposed to be done in person) at RMCAD use videos of the models. So if Holly wanted to she could easily pause the video and trace it.

Although the above image probably wasn't traced because it's on canvas, which is hard to trace onto.

I think I understand why she regressed a bit. If you look back at some of her old anatomy studies she was really getting somewhere, but then she became arrogant in her abilities and assumed she was done learning, so now when she does studies she barely takes in the anatomy or form and just draws what she is so sure she already knows. And when she looks at it she can't see the obvious flaws.
