HollyBRown is a bad artist, YouTuber, webcomic author, and fujoshi popular with edgy children for her "no bullshit" attitude despite not accepting any criticism.

She beleives she's known for her three webcomics:
Purgatory, her oldest and worst comic, about two gay teens in a cult with lots of rape: https://tapas.io/series/Purgatory
Paranormal Plague, whose most-drawn character hasn't been introduced, with rape DLC: https://tapas.io/series/Paranormalplague
Chroma Prince, her newest Patreon-only NSFW yaoi comic about alien sex slaves, not updated in a month at currently four pages: https://www.patreon.com/hollybrown

She's actually most known for ranting about the CalArts admissions process being unfair even though she was DEFINITELY accepted:

She's complaining that sumi-e paints don't layer and get opaque…

Does she just buy shit that looks cool without the barest bit of research? No need to answer the question for me, I know the answer is yes.

No. 757271

Its so stupid she bought these watercolors for the muted colors. You can literally create these same exact colors with just the primary colors. This is dumb

companies love making money off people who are too retarded to realize you can mix paint and make any colour you could possibly want

what's sad is someone who is a "professional artist" and went to school for x amount of years actually bought into it

No. 757421

OT but afaik for watercolours you're not actually supposed to mix more than a couple colours together because it changes the pigment/opacity/makes them muddy. So like, some colours you really should buy specific ones you're gonna use a lot. Although these ones are just colours mixed with brown/black so idk how much that would matter to get these colours?

It's also really funny to me that she bought these as watercolours but they're actually a different medium entirely and then gets mad that they don't work the same as watercolours kek

No. 757444

she should've scrapped the whole video because nothing she said was valid. she was using Sumi ink as watercolour, calling it watercolour, thought it was an entirely different brand and then shit talking it the whole time. this video was literally useless to anyone. she could've at least annotated it because not everyone is going to read the comments where she corrected herself.

she's like 3 videos into this channel and fucking up bad.

No. 757522

Her lack of research shown greatly. Those time of watercolors are used for Sumi-e paintings, not repeated diluted layers of pigment. She should’ve gotten western paints or sennelier, a brand known for layering. But eh it’s cheaper than most watercolors

No. 757617

The Amazon link calls them watercolors not ink.

No. 757625

It does, but they're sumi-e paints, they're not the same as western watercolors. Sumi-e paints aren't meant to be layered or diluted the way she used them.

No. 757626

Fair enough. My point is that it's not that unreasonable for someone to think a product labeled watercolor can be used as a watercolor. Yeah, she used them wrong but it's not like she's a complete idiot for making that mistake.

No. 757627

Sorry, I forgot to sage.

No. 757642

the video is still worthless though because even though they're labeled watercolor, they're not traditional watercolors or meant to be used in that way. she used them wrong and then told her impressionable tween audience they're shit because she didn't do any research. all while calling them the wrong fucking thing in the first place.

if you're going to attempt to educate your audience on a product at least do the most basic research. or try to get the name right at all…

No. 757656

I dont think you understand what >>757626 anon is trying to say, like the reason she didnt do any research was because she thought they were just normal water colour paints and not something thats supposed to be used entirely different. Maybe it's different when buying art suppies online, but typically most people when buying a new art product dont look up the brand because they're just interested in trying something new.

She thought it was watercolour because it said it was watercolour. It turns out it wasn't, but that doesn't mean she's completely at fault for using them wrong since she didn't think they would be any different.

However I do agree that it was dumb since she makes "eductaional" videos about the product shes using without doing any research. Like if you know you're trying a new product and are talking about it to the masses then the least you can do is search up the brand to learn more about it

No. 757665

ntayrt, but you know what that is fair. I didn't realise they were labelled watercolors. It's an understandable mistake to buy them thinking they're watercolors, but definitely made her look ignorant as fuck shitting on them so much tho.

You'd think for someone who is trying to not buy any art supplies at all, she'd at least look up the ONE product she's letting herself buy to make sure it's actually good and not a waste of her purchase.

No. 757676

that's my whole point though. she should've never posted the video because it's full of misinformation. it doesn't matter she made an honest mistake, it would've been another story entirely if she uploaded it saying how she thought they were watercolors etc. instead she proceeded to talk out of her ass(using the wrong brand name no less, gansai tambi makes nice watercolors too).

No. 757692

So… where's the non-bitching, non-uneducated and barely literate, "new" Holly at? Because I see no difference even after her "rebranding"

No. 757786


They are technically labeled Sumi watercolors. And a handful of the reviews point out how the pigment separates when mixed with a lot of water. Anyways Holly buys on impulse so I won’t be surprised she saw them, saw the pictures, saw the price, and bought it.

No. 757787


Thats the point anon, if you’re making muted, desarurated colors, then you really only need the primaries. A set of 3 or 6 watercolors is enough to mix these exact colors, and holly already has all of the colors she needed to create this. She just doesn’t understand how to desaturate her colors i guess

No. 757800

Honestly Holly should look at reviews before she buys anything like most adults. Because buying anything off eBay, Aliexpress or Amazon means the title is going to have “2018/19 Best Watercolors Professional set 6-24 colors” after the brandname.
Most people I know (me and my friends anyway) go off user reviews and not item names and descriptions since most Chinese Wholesalers don’t put much time or effort into properly detailing said items

That said I can understand the mistake, but Holly has what? At least 5 different sets of paints and watercolor paints so it’s not like she needed them, and she’s shit with using watercolors anyway so it’s not like she can give an accurate review or tutorial with the product so…

Most people have the ability to learn to draw. Innate talent of perception can only take you so far. It takes both study and practice. Holly is only willing to practice and has proven time and time again she refuses to study for improvement. It's too hard. Perspective is too much like math so why bother she says. Sure let me spend four years and 30k just to give up and come out with nothing because my teachers wanted me to study but I just wanna draw 'weeb shit'. No sympathy from me.

No. 759326

btw, artanons- is part of the reason she sucks so much because she draws on a slippery plastic tablet? I mean, anybody with a pen or pencil could draw that handle curve as a smooth line with out the wobble and jitter, right?

No. 759334

If she's been drawing digitally for a long time it shouldn't be an issue. A lot of artists transitioning from traditional art to digital struggle with the smooth surface at first and might have wobbly lines, but they remedy it by putting a sheet of paper over the tablet until they get used to it.

If she did have this issue she would notice though, you can tell that you're uncomfortable with the smoothness and aren't achieving the lines you're usually getting on paper. I think Holly's problem is more that she just doesn't practice her lines (or anything) and doesn't think about lineweight.

No. 759336

She doesn’t look twice at her drawings because she’s afraid they might not be good. Spoiler alert; they’re not very good

No. 759338


Holy shit that handle!

No. 759392

The tablet she draws on is literally meant for that purpose. It's not slippery - it has a coating to make drawing smoother (i have the same one). Yeah, it takes a little bit of time to transition from traditional to digital drawing but she's been doing this for YEARS so she has no excuse.

No. 759398

It's mostly to do with drawing from the shoulder, and not the texture of the surface. Most non-artists can be pretty bad at drawing smooth lines or curves because they approach drawing like writing where the wrist leads your pencil/pen.

But like >>759334 said, Holly probably doesn't practice or see what's wrong. She uses undo a lot for the other lines (nothing wrong with that, imo) but not that one, which is why I lean to the latter.

>the subject of the draw50 videos came up and he was explaining to me like hey why don't you try to make each object you draw have its own personality. […] and so the video kind of turned in to how can i make these weird ass cups
so… because she's constantly running away and not running to anywhere, she just flailed onto the dumbest idea a video concept that would allow her to do her comfort doodles, not concerned about its coherence. She started doing it, realised it's meaningless and got bummed out but was telling this to some person and they condescended to her "What if this [other concept] was what you intended?" ("these shoes are in the off position!") and she latched on to that. yeah yeah p-product design.. th-that's what draw50 is

No. 759557

>Says she’d never work on comics being paid 30$ a page because she could never work for so little money
>Also says she can’t understand how comics can have a separate writer and artist, then goes on to say it’s like someone writing a script then going to an animator and saying “here animate this for free please!”

A lot of proper webcomic artists will draw 1 or 2 pages a week, usually the former, so that they have time to make it both look good and function within the story they want to tell.

Funny how she talks about not being able to work for $30 a page when she tried to find a flat colorist on the cheap, then proceeded to shit on his work.

I know we like to share milk about her here but honestly she's gotten so redundant. She's just using her "new" YouTube as a front, the way she presents herself hasn't changed at all. She's been trying to lay low and act like she's more positive but her last few actual videos have been nothing but shit talking only maybe a bit milder. She isn't fooling anyone.

That's honestly the reason I have no sympathy for her actually.

I know there are a good handful of anons her that sympathize and pity her, and wish she'd do better for herself, I wish the same but when she absolutely refuses at every turn to change herself for the better and make her own situation better, then bitches and complains about it, I just can't feel sorry for her and will continue to laugh at her until she does. It's more infuriatingly funny to me then redundant.

Holly is going to be 28, still a kissless virgin only more bitter and hateful, her art will still be shit and she will have nothing with her life besides sit on her ass and shit up the internet with her shitty art and opinions, and it'll be then when she realizes its her own fault shes like that, and maybe she should have taken the crit and changed before burning every bridge.

No. 760168


I hold my pencil in a similar way to Holly (pencil leaning agains the fourth fingers instead of middle), and I've found that actually way more artists draw holding the pencil like that than you would think. I think it has to do with the wrist and elbow movement needed to write.

Either way it's not great and I have RSI now and really bad callouses on my finger and the inside of my thumb because I studied an essay based degree and boy the number of essays you write will KILL you. But the callous is a nice soft padding. A pillow for your pencil.

No. 760242

SUPER OT, but gunna be honest never saw any other artist hold a pencil like Holly. My little bro and a few other dudes I know hold their pencils/pens like that and they have horrible writing, like they dont have proper wrist and arm control. It just seems so odd to me because holding a pen on my ring finger makes me want to use my fingers to flow not my wrist and thats what I see with Holly. She flows with her fingers and hand, not her wrist and arm.
I guess it's not really a position thing and more a control thing but it just looks and feels odd, not saying its wrong or anything just seems like you have to practice control and flow more then someone who uses their middle finger.

No. 760298

I hold mine like Holly and have a small callous in the same place she does. For wide sweeping strokes I go overhand but I had an art prof instruct me on the different ways to switch it up for proper variation. I usually just hold it normally for detail work or sketching.

No. 760305

thats the difference I guess, Holly doesnt know how to properly flow or gesture her wrist given her position and never learned to work with and around it.
That really doesnt surprise me at all, tbh
also-side note; I havent had callouses on my fingers since I was in my late teens/early 20's, and I changed up my handcare routine now I dont have a single callous and the area on my middle finger is just a little more tough then the other fingers, and it doesnt get sore or hurt after hours of drawing. (throwing a tip out to hopefully help, care for your fingers anons please!)

No. 760343

OT but I also hold my pencil/pen/etc against the first joint of my ring finger. For ages, especially in high school when I drew a LOT, and years afterward, I had a soft type of callous like you describe right on the side of the joint.

Nowadays I don't write on pen/paper nor draw much at all (sadly) and the callous is completely gone. But I never had issues when I had one. Having it bleed is definitely… alarming to say the least. She has to be overexerting herself and doing some sort of rough or jerky hand movements.

I guess to be fair I've always used my arm+wrist innately.

No. 760350

The truth is it shouldn't bleed. I've sat through 6 hour essay exams and the only thing I got was an extra callous on my thumb area (I know it's a bad way to hold the pencil, I've actually been trying to change it because it's not sustainable rip). Unless she has REALLY DRY HANDS because if so please moisturise because that's a bad look.

also yeah it's a bit weird because you use your fingers sometimes. It takes active effort to… not do that and to use your whole arm, because holding it against your ring finger actually allows for more swooping motions because of the angle of the pen.

Anyway this is super OT, to loop it back to Holly, she shouldn't be bleeding that's just really bad hand care.

No. 760385

I use to write between my index and middle finger throughout elementary and students and teachers would call it out so I started to hold my pencils "correctly" and developed a callous in that same spot.

This properly answers why her sketching is so scratchy since she only only uses her wrist motion which is extremely limited. Even then, how would your hands bleed from that? Im genuinely curious because where would it bleed from?

No. 760530

The way she made the hips and torso join is a bit confusing but for once most of the piece looks ok and the hands actually look all right and not like her usual mittens. I'm positively surprised! I guess she's putting in some extra effort since these are commissions people actually directly paid for?

No. 760536

I was also positively surprised, but I have a feeling at least parts of this are traced. I don't believe Holly BRown actually has this level of skill, though I might be wrong.

Finished the second one

Personally, i think this one's better

No. 760577

Shit man, good on her for doing commissions. Probably not as stable as most jobs, but it`s better than how she used to beg for money for things she didn't need while sitting on her ass at home doing nothing. At least this way people can watch her livestreams and know exactly what they're getting (not only by seeing the final drawings, but also the amount of effort and time that she puts into them). Though she's charging a cheap-ish price, so that`s not much to complain about really.

The lean is so fucking strong on that list though. I really think she tilts her head at a weird angle when she writes and draws or something.

No. 760585

I wonder if she decides to consistently put in hard work for commissions, her overall art will end up improving because of it.

No. 760587

Hey these are alright! Like she sat down and tried to practice SOME basics before doing this. Still her standard stiffness, blocky weird lines and horrible positioning and lean but it's an improvement.
I'm not hopeful tho, I get the feeling this is going to stop as soon as she started because Holly can't commit to anything, and she's going to give up on trying to be a bit more perfectionist over her work…

Nah, she tried commissions before and she barely put an effort in when she did, and got pissy about it not even half way through and said she wouldnt be doing commissions again. This is for money and followers because she needs that $$$ and her real body of work will only look like this on the off chance.

No. 760641

why has she suddenly done drawings that are 10x better than her comic art?? the anatomy, the lines…
(except for that grody top lip)

No. 760643

Sorry, but the second one is mediocre at best and the first one is downright hideous. Look at that face, it's just so ugly, the torso looks like a weird twisted cloth and the character just looks stumpy, stiff and unbalanced. These drawings have no flow, the second one's chair looks like it's made out of cardboard and straight out of my little sister's edgy art class. I know that when it comes to Holly, standards are already really low but these are not good by any measure and they're definitely not worth the 20 bucks.

No. 760648

Don't know why she won't just cave and draw furries since that would solve her money problems. It's not like she shies away from degenerate shit in her personal work.

No. 760683

I don't think that would work because 1. she's not really known in furry circles, so rich furries probably wouldn't notice her, and 2. she doesn't draw the kind of weird degeneracy that attracts furries who just want to see her fetish. Not gonna lie though, it would be fun seeing Holly draw diaper and inflation porn for furry bux.

No. 760699

imagine holly doing vore porn, i shudder at the thought

none of the anons here are saying these are amazing, just better than what she usually puts out. holly has barely improved for the last 3 years so seeing even a little improvement in her skill and attitude is good and hopefully she keeps the momentum.

Her constantly going over her sketches like that progressively stiffens her art. It's fine to refine a sketch but eventually you have to bite the bullet and line it.


Her lip looks swollen.

No. 760826

why have multiple sketch layers? it'd be more efficient and easier to fix mistakes on the one sketch layer and work with that, and her lining looks like bad sketching most times anyway, she never cleans up her linework.

A lot of artists use ps tho

Which are the better programs?

No. 760881


PS is flexible for heaps of shit but if your just doing digital art like sketches and nothing else Photoshop is overkill.
Paint tool sai, Medibang, Krita and Mangastudio are fine replacements. PS is like it says more for photo manipulation and photography type stuff though it is possible to do sketches/digital drawing in it its needlessly complex for such a simple purpose.

No. 760913

Really you only want to use PS for certain editing and possibly sketch clean up/vectoring, but for digital drawing it's a cloggy, often RAM heavy program. Like >>760881 listed, there are many other options, Mangastudio/PaintClip Studio are vastly superior options for Holly to be using but it's a learning curve when trying new programs so she probably gave it like a day then gave up because she couldn't use it 'exactly like PS'

Besides if you want to use an Adobe program for digital art you're best off using Flash or whatever they call it now, but Holly hated that and TV paint too because it was 'too hard to use'
And they're not, you just have to take the time to learn to use them. I wonder how many art programs she has sitting on her computer now, never being used.

No. 760919

it's funny because the dedicated painting programs like manga studio have tons of shortcuts or tools like line smoothing to make your experience that much better, you'd think someone as lazy as holly would want to jump on that since she's forever trying to take shortcuts.

No. 760931

She tried saying in >>759987 that she has no idea if Clip Paint was compatible with her Cintiq (it is, it's called Google Holly use it) so I'm guessing thats one of her excuses for not switching over, because she'd have to spend time rebinding keys to her tablet and figuring out the shortcut keys etc.

I spent maybe a week fully figuring out Clip Paint Studio and it didnt have to take me that long, I was having fun figuring out everything the program had to offer, but I guess that would cut back on the time she has for the 10,000,000 pages of comics she puts out a day, and she couldn't possibly waste time like that /s

No. 760937

No. 760939

If you don't clip their nails periodically and keep an eye on them, polydactyl claws tend to get infected pretty bad. Knowing Holly she probably wasn't up to the responsibility and thus decided to get him 'declawed' in his extra toes.

No. 760958

That's kind of a long ass time for simple digital inked pieces. Granted, she's livestreaming them, but hopefully she gets quicker as she keeps doing it, even if it seems like she wastes a lot of time rambling about stupid shit rather than focusing on the lines she's making which inevitably leads to her redoing them. If she could get to doing a commission every hr or even every 2 hrs, she'd make decent money.

No. 763304

Nah its much better than Holly's normal stuff since the composition is pretty solid and the scene actually makes sense. Everything else is a bit meh.

I know Holly lurks on here so my advice to her would be to actually try to accurately redraw the screenshot before redrawing it in her own style. That way she can learn the nuances of the scene before choosing which parts she wants to stylize and bring attention to.

No. 763354

>the scene actually makes sense
not really? I had to look up the actual scene from beetlejuice and I didn't even know that was who she was drawing until she said it in the video.
She doesn't add the actual screenshot from what I can see, just says that her redraw will look like shit when compared to the original (paraphrased). Even then, the feel I got from her redraw is that the suit guy is belittling the shrunken head like a head-villain-to-underling-type interaction but that isn't at all how the scene plays out. Maybe it's her dreamworks brows at it again

No. 763620

Okay here's why I'm an ex-holly fan and obsessed with her: My personality and my mental health problems are almost IDENTICAL to her. Her videos are painful to watch because I can relate to her. I relate to the things she hates about herself and I hate about me. But the thing is, I've learned it the hard way that these mental health problems won't go away before she stops making excuses for herself and brushing things off.

It's a good first step that she has realized that she needs to change but she is still "hiding" behind her mental health repeating "I'm like this because depression u guys" and "people hate me no matter what I do".

She needs to fucking face the fact that the whole world doesn't exist to attack her. An average person doesn't care two shits of what someone else is doing with their life because they have their own problems to worry about.

Now this is only my personal armchair opinion but I think Holly should
1. Realize than the only person who is responsible for her fucked up situation and can fix it is herself(mostly).
2. Decide whether or not she can fix it on her own or if she needs a medical professional.

Because I did that and WOW WEE look at that, my mental health improved massively almost immediately when I stopped fucking whining and defending myself and defending people like her and me.

GOD I WANT TO SLAP HER BACK TO REALITY. Sorry, rant over.(autism)

No. 763621

Realize that*

No. 763644

As a fellow ex-holly fan, I also used to relate to a lot of the things she said. But I started to realise that there were so many things she said that were just wrong. TBH I followed her because she had these interesting merch making videos and I thought they were very snazzy, but then she started to lord about the fact she's a different artist and she uses ink and she does studies and uses toned paper, it was pretty iffy.

She has good art. I mean, if you look at that one video about storyboarding, she did a w hole thing with a tiger and a zebra, and a few of those compositions were pretty good! But somehow she never translated that into her normal work which is so frustrating to see.

It's so easy to get caught up in yourself, though, which is what Holly has done. She constantly plays the victim and never thinks before she speaks, which is why somme people love her and most people hate her. There's being blunt and there's just being downright obnoxious.

No. 763698

Probably not, I don't think the last convention was really profitable for her even though she claims she made money. Another anon posted a spreadsheet a while back and it looks like she either lost money or barely broke even.

No. 763699

>'She has good art.'

I think the thing is that Holly's art is better than the average hobbyist. Like it falls into the category of being inspirational but achievable for the average beginner. Unfortunately anybody who has done art for a while can quickly see all the flaws and beginner mistakes Holly makes in every piece. With all that said Holly isn't a lolcow because of her art, she's a lolcow because of the fact that she does and says stupid things. Deactivating her twitter was a good step forward for her so I really hope she continues to stay out of drama.

No. 763736


I figured. I regularly sell at conventions and have been for years now, and watching how she went about her con prep and how she just splurged on unnecessary things nearly gave me a damn brain aneurysm. I already knew she would barely make any money back with it. Every first timer is going to make mistakes and alot barely break even like I did my first year but even I, at 16 knew better than to spend almost $50 on a stupid ass cardboard box to store prints. I just used a plastic bin. I would genuinely like to see her try a convention again to see if she's learned anything. Hell, I wouldn't even mind giving her actual helpful advice.

No. 768032

It's at this point where she's aimlessly kind of just putting out boring videos and if that makes her happy then that's fine. I feel like it's another distraction though. She's always finding something else to do besides her comic. She tried many times to make content out of her comic and its concepts but they just never seem to work out for her.

She probably doesnt like working on one project at a time. And maybe, just maybe, her ideas aren't so great. It just hasn't really occurred to her. Maybe what she has laid out for herself doesn't make her happy or excited to actually work on stuff. She's spilled the beans about every character in PP because she's bored and wants that instant gratification.

Her milk is slowing down now because she's turned into a run of the mill artist on YouTube with an OK video schedule and mediocre art skills.

It was fun while it lasted, though! 2018 was her year on lolcow for sure.

No. 768045


Her videos were never engaging so if there's not any drama going on, she's just the typical "blunt" and "honest" (aka rude bitch that tries to hide behind that) starving artist with an unappealing art style and even more so unappealing personality. Baylee-Jae may not have the greatest art but, I'm subscribed to her for her personality and con prep videos. Without any drama going on Holly is just ridiculously boring and bland.

No. 768102

Lol, the irony. This is really the best time for her to be working on her comics though. No school, no financially motivated "obligation" to YT (not that she was ever under contract or anything, but now she makes zilch from it), and she's probably only working part-time if she does have a job. She's never going to get the same YT following that she used to after moving to a new account, as if all of the drama didn't affect her past views enough. If she had an actual Patreon schedule, she could be making some cash off of just updating her comics early on there and showing concept stuff.

But nope, gotta be a useless ~aesthetic~ art-tuber! Deleting her first twitter was also a bad idea in terms of getting more readers. Wonder how long it`ll be until she blows up again about how she's so poor and works so hard and spends so much $$$, why aren`t you guys buying my shitty originals.

I’m not gonna lie, part of me is grateful. This whole thing only has one panel of that awful wood texture.

I guess for Holly it’s either a panel that’s too crowded or one that’s completely empty be of backgrounds or people. To me the only panel that looks okay is the large middle panel here >>768974 and that’s if you ignore weird perspective on the people placed in it.

She really barely made any improvements, perspectives of all the characters are fucked like none of them look like they are in the same place or even touching each other when they are actually touching each other.

Weird lines everywhere that look like they're shadow lines and she forgot to fill in said shadows, then she was too lazy to even use the 3D bg's in the panels, all of this is literally a purgatory.

She can kinda draw hair now… a bit. I mean she knows how to make it look less like a lego piece put on their heads, it all still looks like one solid clump.

I'm sorry but this is just sad, she's regressed so much it's obvious she doesn't give a fuck about this anymore. Sorry for the tl;dr but holy shit Holly give a fuck for a while will you? At least for your fans that still read this hot garbage?

No. 771783

A kickstarter isn't to fund your car, or your rent. That's patreon. Kickstarter, you knob, is to fund the project you want launched. It's after the project is sustainable that you start earning.

Like, what is she going to do, ask for money for purgatory volume 2 to go to print and ask for money for a car/rent? Is she expecting to make hundreds more than her sales goal?

She could've gotten that car she wanted ages ago last year (via patreon) if she wasn't focused on spending her money on dumb shit, and now she wants to open up another kickstarter. She may very well reach her print goal but everything else? Ok holls. Lie to yourself like you lied about having 2 day jobs in the bag. Lmao.

Like, the first volume from what I seen had its issues and wonky art, but at least it was more visually interesting. Here it looks like she's just given up in almost every aspect. Who's gonna want this by the time she decides to sell it…? She's lost serious momentum after all the bullshit.

Honestly, everything is so bad I’m barely even phased by it. I mean, there are two whole pages with literally nothing except people talking in a void.


At least prior pages had one single panel with some grid space that suppsed to suggest a background, but she couldn’t even do that without quitting near the end.

No one cares about this slow, boring excuse for plot. The art is the bare minimum. She can’t even draw her own backgrounds anymore, wonky though they may be. This is just… sterile. I never thought I’d see such a soulless product in such a creative medium. But here we are.

Why… WHY would she do this?!? Her skills haven’t improved much if at all since the initial release of Purgatory, a redraw serves no purpose.

i don't think any of the projects she's brought up since dropping out of school has been actual plans for the future.

Because it's easier. Redrawing Purgatory will give Holly the illusion of being productive without her having to put in the effort to create completely new content.

Holly needs to put her pencil down for a bit and come up with a solid plan for her future. Realistically speaking her videos are her only real draw. I mean most of her fan base buy her art/commission her because they like her videos. Unfortunately with her new channel and current update schedule I think she is slowly losing the few fans she had left. If I was Holly I would try to focus on rebuilding my YouTube following (with more vlogs, challenges and tutorials) and then try to come up with a project I could sell to my fanbase (Paranormal Plague looks like it could work but commissions would also work just as well). While this is going on I would try to figure out a back up plan, like going back to school to become a teacher, for when my e-fame eventually wore out.

Holly is honestly such a fucking Asshole who thinks she can say whatever she wants because ~freedom of speech~ but in reality she's just a fujoshi white girl who lives at home with her mom and has never gone a date with anyone.

I'm judging her for still living at home because hey, rent is tough to deal with, but at least the rest of us aren't pretending to be big baddies online. Ugh.

I've noticed this with her. She always seems to find more random shit to slap her art on which, anyone who runs an online store or sells at conventions will tell you is a bad idea.

The golden rule is quality over quantity aka: there's an endless amount of things to turn into sellable items but most people keep it to the basics because while you could sell custom printed shower curtains with your art on it, will it really be cohesive with the rest of your products? I guess I could clap for her trying to be creative and embroidered patches aren't too out of the loop of regular merch but…Eh, I'm kinda starting to notice that with her. It's safer to stick with things like buttons, stickers, enamel pins, etc. I'm just expecting her to come out with some obscure thing like and toliet cover with Reese's face slapped on it.

That's her issue though. She just burns through several ideas and gets bored with them on any given day.
She literally just threw out tons of enamel pins of her characters and now she wants to make embroidered patches of her random 2 ocs kissing?
Her readership isn't that big and her comics don't have the reach she thinks it does, especially not now. So the patches will get a few sales and then the rest will just sit in one of the crusty corners of her room.

And I guess "I'm only going to work on purgatory" really means "I'm going to waste my time redrawing purgatory and waste my money trying to push merch for it".
She has always gone about webcomics the wrong way, you don't go into it to make a profit. All that extra bullshit comes later when you have an actual coherent story with clearly identifiable characters. People don't care enough about her shit to go sticking pins and embroidered patches onto their clothes or whatever. Stickers maybe, but she's always been doing the most.

She can't seem to focus in on just the one thing that matters, which is just making a good fucking comic.

Does Holly genuinely not understand that there are ways to deal with rape in fiction that are going to come off as either more/less tasteful or exploit-y? I'm sort of shocked she still thinks people are criticising her for having sexual abuse in her story and not for handling it poorly.

No. 774681

The way she handles it is literally the only reason people even care or bring it up. There are plenty of doujinshis that have rape for sake of porn, some people are into that, no one cares. But the people who make that stuff don’t try to pass it off as some super serious and realistic portrayal of rape and sexual abuse that is integral to plot and character development. They don’t try and play it off as cutesy like in Seize. They know what they made and own it. I wouldn’t even give a shit if her characterization wasn’t garbage and she just owned up to being a filthy fujo. Why is she so in denial of herself???

No. 774693


After all that bullshit toward the end of last year, she is calling this criticism 'vague'. She knows full well what she's making and doesn't care about the tone of the comic because it's all over the place. The rape incident isn't handled well (read: not at all) and the her comments joking about it and implying Simon is to blame for it happening are probably still up.
But then she wants to play it up like it's some deeper narrative, like, no, bitch, follow your dreams. Go hard or go home. Go all in and make your shitty fujo comics like you really want to, like you did with seize. Trust trust, bitch don't be coy lmao.

With not even 30 000 subs she will barely be able to make a living so no idea why she already purged most of her etsy content (including the comissions).

"Because I was given free stuff, I managed to be a more successful artist." Fuckin' what. Up to this point I thought she knew she lived through controversies and stuff, but she actually thinks what she has done up until now could be considered SUCCESSFUL?!
Technically she hasn't earned a dime since she spends everything, she also has a 50k debt for an education she didn't complete and still circles back to a project that's technically completed (Purg book 1) but she can't let go off, because creating new content is obviously too much work for her.

She already went through this, giving away art supplies only to purchase them again; her "sentiment" in this video might be in the right place but she doesn't seem to aware of what makes a hoarder in the first place, you can have a lot of art supplies and still be very organized, you don't need to "get out of your experimental phase" to sort your life out, that'd be boring as hell.

She's always making these shitty items with expensive overhead that have her ocs plastered all over them that end up collecting dust because she's so focused on making product of boring ass character designs and not working on the foundation she claims she does so well which is comics.

NO one has any real reason to buy what she makes and all she ever does is go with her gut on what she thinks people want, because of her echo chamber. If it doesn't interest her, she won't hear it.

I thought she was enjoying commissions, her streams doing them were pretty enjoyable to watch and she had a big list of people who wanted them. She could've made a lot of money off them if she streamlined her process. Did she even finish her waiting list?

I don't understand why she even wanted an art degree since it was going to be 100% useless and she wasn't even getting the benefit of networking. Does she think graphic designers or commission artists feel emotionally invested in their work, or does she think they bail out when they can't insert their OCs? I can't imagine her with a client in a professional setting. "Idk I just don't feel connected to what you're asking me to do, what if we use my emo cutter girlboi for your logo instead?"

There she goes again, trying to handle other people's money to make wonky custom charms that she'll probably fuck up on then blame the people who gave her the money for her to make their charms.
She honestly won't get to doing this. If she manages to get the cutter she'll probably fuck up on it anyway. She just wants to do it because she thinks her idea is original.

So, I guess no car, or moving out, then?
Like, she becomes so obsessed with the idea of making products but they never come out right.
Every time she gets a crazy idea like this someone should remind her of the fucked up zine fiasco. The position she puts herself in constantly, doesn't lend itself to working well with others so I'm having trouble believing shed do any better here. Laser cutting isn't the same as printing. She's going to waste so much time and money just troubleshooting. Leave the manufacturing to actual manufacturers.

Also laser razor is the dumbest name I've ever heard for this, and the logo she mocked up is fucked.

No. 775952

Honestly I think her being a manufacturer would be much more beneficial than trying to make money off of her subpar art. She could specialize in making things for people going to conventions BUT, I would recommend she start out with fairly simple things with equipment that isn't as expensive as a god damn laser cutter. She could make buttons/button packs and stickers/die cut sticker sheets for people. Should would need a button press which you can get on Ebay with around 1000 button parts for $150-$250 depending on the size of the buttons and she get interchangeable dies to change the size or even the shape. And to make sticker sheets all she would need is a Cricuit Explore 1 which is around the same price range. She already make her own prints so she could offer that service as well. If she's serious and not just getting excited over nothing then she should start small and work her way up. Should would also have to consider making templates and specs so that her customers would submit their art correctly. Drafting up an order form or making an entirely new website for it. She would have to consider offering as is or custom packaging, deadlines, waitlists, and much more. This isn't just something you can prance into, you're dealing with alot of shit. This isn't the same as just selling ready made merch on Etsy or whatever.

The biggest issue is she would have to change her attitude and have someone else helping her because there's no way she could do quality control on her own nor keep up with demand and we all know how well her zine and flatter went. She would have to work with people and we all know how good she is with that.

So all in all, I think she'd make more money as a manufacturer with her art on the side but, she would have to really buckle down and she shouldn't be trying to do something as huge as custom charms with a $3,000 laser cutter right off the bat.

No. 775960


If she was able to focus on just one thing at a time, I think that she could do it too, but she's literally unable.
And she can't/won't get her head out her ass long enough for her to be interested in making stuff for other artists. It's all about her in the long run, and from the start she gets it wrong because she's thinking about how much money she could earn, instead of the services she could be offering. Since she's so self-serving and self absorbed.

She hasn't got her priorities straight. She's trying to get a car and move out, but is concerned about someone 'stealing' her oh-so-original laser cutting manufacture 'idea' that 'no one else is doing'? That's not the talk of an artist, that's talk of someone trying to cash in on a gimmick and she's never honest with herself about that.

In all seriousness, there is so little soul in her work, it's painful to look at them. I have absolutely no idea how people can call her their queen when there are so many young artists, on tumblr alone, out there who make similar and better content.

Might sound harsh to some, but considering how little thought she puts into everything (I don't even think she works as much as she claims, since she has so little to show and she shows EVERYTHING) and how unwilling she is to adhere to any kind of standard (especially in the industry, but even her personal work is starting to get more lazy) I honestly don't think that anyone is unfair towards her, when saying "you are a bad artist".
She has no drive, no personal motivation apart from money, no desire to listen to people, no interest in any subject apart from the series she's currently watching and her OCs, no morals, no diligence, no discipline, no conscience, basically she has no idea in general of anything outside of her room.
If we would see this as a starting point and she would strive to get better at at least SOME of these things there wouldn't be more than a dozen threads about her, but as things stand she is actually getting worse each day.

No. 776211

She’s not a bad artist, hear me out she has some marginal amount of natural talent. Her art is quite expressive and unique really, there’s nothing quite like it.

No. 776217

Problem is, talent is nothing once you hit adulthood and don't nourish it. There are people born without talent that would far supass her by now, because they actually work hard.
Besides, being born with some talent doesn't make her any less lazy, unoriginal and uncreative - her art might be "unique" but really, so are some stick figures drawn by pre-schoolers. It boiles down to what she does with her life and so far she has basically nothing that could be considered future-proof.

"I'm selling a bunch of my crap cause I really wanna get that freakin' laser engraver… So… I'm selling my vlog camera and tv pain professional edition. Basically I've realized I cannot own these thing 'cause they just do not make me any income, and I need to have something that makes me income, sooo…"

As much as I like… Want to animate on this, I've realized like, it doesn't make me money therefore it's a hobby, same with vlogging, and for RIGHT NOW I have to focus on getting out of this house soo yeah"

"Also if you want one of these label printers, I'm selling this for like 150, they're surprisingly expensive, these things are just as expensive as my big fucking printer, what the hell?"

No. 776264

That's just…what? Is she seriously thinking that her goddamn laser thingy will make her SO MUCH monies?!

And I loled so hard, she is seriously trying to sell her educational license - that's basically the version you can't even use professionally, only for university. Isn't that the program she collected 2000 fucking dollars for? This version is worth about a quarter of that, holy heck.

No. 776270

hoo boy indeed…
This girl needs to get an actual job and actually plan out her shit before she starts thinking about starting any printing business.

Also a former fan of her videos, seeing all the threads leading up to this point certainly was a trip and makes me kind of glad I stopped watching her videos. It doesn't seems like she's grown much from her previous fiasocs.

No. 776271


Do you want the laser engraver or to fucking move out, which is it, holly, because you cannot do both.

And I wouldn't want any product from her messy, gross, rsggedy room either. Imagine gettin dust and grime and dirt all in that engraver. She won't do proper maintenence on it, she never takes care of her shit

No. 776288

I will never understand why she doesn't just get things made online. It is affordable and would safe her so much time and money.

Even if she gets a lasercutter, there's a lot of trial and error involved and she won't be able to fix or adjust it herself (look how much she struggled with her printer and book binding equipment). She also shouldn't put it in her cramped room because it needs proper ventilation.

I don't remember where exactly she lives, but there might even be a maker space close by? She should have her license by now…

No. 776297

Well, she thinks she will earn money by making stuff for other people, so…
Still have no idea why she thinks there would be a huge demand for engraved charms - certainly not a big enough one to have most of her fans bulk-ordering them like she believes they will.

No. 776299

after what happened with the zine i highly doubt anyone would want their stuff made by her.She burned that bridge long ago.Either she learned to put on her big girl pants and work with other or learn that every project that pops into her mind will not make money unless she actually puts forth effort into it and actually finishes it ,
and hell if anyone wants to buy jacked up charms then its their fault for not researching holly in the first place.

No. 776315

Well, a fan zine and a business are two different things -if she fucks up the latter she might have to face some serious consequences.

Didn't she sell out of prints of these at the con? I'm actually kind of surprised one of her fans hasn't bought it tbh.

I thought Holly was turning over a new leaf and would slowly fade into obscurity but here she is, coming out swinging with her old milky behavior. I'm starting to think she's legitimately ADHD with how she's incapable of focusing on one thing for more than a minute. She's so hyperfixated on this printer, as soon as she gets it she's going to be bored of it.

No. 776331


She seems manic right now yammering on about this bs. She doesn't know how to keep it simple and just focus on doing one thing well because she's constantly chasing money to throw at more dumb shit. She thinks she's thinking because her mind is going a mile a minute.


She legit tried to make it her business to print all of them herself. If she can't handle that or communicating with others, then she can't handle a business.

No. 776379

No. 776469

I used to be friends with holly. Like I was a fan of her channels and I ended up dming her and she was funny and fine at first but has since turned into a complete and utter gremlin.

Here’s some mild tea that we might already know, I’m new.

1. She once found a dead rat in her room and left it there until it rotted, at which point she tried to pay a friend to remove it but they wouldn’t and she had to hire someone to remove it and they found mold on it and informed her it was unhealthy if her to stay there. She then said she had to suffer for her art and if she got sick, it would be okay cause she did it for her art
2. The holly brown is an art scrub video pissed her off because she said the critiques didn’t account for her style
3. She hates more other youtubers but really had it out for Emily artful and creepshow Art. Said she sent fake screenshots on a fake account to creepshow so she would think emily was talking shit, didn’t realize that emily and creepshow know each other, and freaked out when creepshow called her out behind the scenes.
4. Thought moving to a new YouTube channel would be a smart business move not knowing that monetization takes months. Was told that later, wanted to go back to her old YouTube but literally got locked out of it because she deleted her password information
5. Had to be talked out of copyright striking D Angelo Wallace for his video. She wanted it taken down and didn’t give a shit how to do it.
6. Manipulated a young fan out of 200 dollars because she told them she would be homeless in a month if she didn’t get the money, used the money to buy herself more art supplies, continues to lie to that fan about it.
And finally
Doesn’t actually have an eating disorder or mental health issues that have been diagnosed. Openly admitted to making most of t up because she thinks it looks better online. She straight up said that it’s more meaningful if you’re say your depressed when you make art.

No. 776470

she draws the wonkiest looking shoulders. the second panel looks alright tho. it'd just a shame how lazy she gets because if she put more effort into it these would look better.

for example, why can't she add some halftones to her drawings? that way there's an idea of value and her pages don't look so flat and white. does she have something against halftones? i feel like she would.

jup, she just doesn't lnow how and where to use them, it seems

No. 776804

She bought physical halftones or was talking about it in a vlog before and very explicitly made it known that she DID NOT like using half tones digitally. This was around the time she first bought Clip Studio Paint, and hated it so much and blamed the persons who recommended it of “wasting her money” it really shows when she uses tones cause it always is on very dark areas only.

No. 777025

She actually only gets money through YouTube (because of ads), Etsy, Amazon (barely) and - if she graces her fans with updates - Patreon.
Makes it quite obvious why she now resorts to selling her stuff, her following on YT has decreased tremendously and she can't be arsed to do anything for Etsy.
Currently she plans to get money through Kickstarter in order to finance her personal wishes, which is shady as hell - I hope her fans are not THAT far gone.

Does anyone know exactly what laser cutter she's wanting to get? Because it seems like it would be a Glowforge considering that their most basic machine costs around $2,500.

No. 777478

Just checked their products - considering she wants to make a "business" out of it she should technically go for the priciest version (6 grant, ouch) since they have better cooling and are actually made for constant usage.

After looking through some laser cutters in general I'm sure you are right, any other cutters I could find are faaaar below 3000, so there's that (and of course Holly has to get the best model right away, since she's already a pro and everything)

No. 777488

the one she wants sounds like it is 3000 exactly because she was pretty specific and like going to set a kickstarter at 3000. maybe she added some wood supply to that 2500 though i dunno. Btw she says she did the math and '30 orders would pay for the laser cutter'. In the same video she said $65 for 100 was the order price. 65*30 = 1950 not 3000 and of course that's revenue not profit (i.e. without materials, shipping, her time which she never counts, etc.) so…

I don't think it's good idea to start diagnosing people over the internet but it does make you wonder if there is something going on there with all the impulsive decisions. Plus she gets too bogged down in pointless busy work that makes no sense from an earning point of view. She's obsessed with this notion of how hard she is working should be enough.

Well, she can't kickstart her laser, since that's not what Kickstarter is here for funding projects, inventions…), that would need a gofundme.

Scrolling through posts about Holly on Tumblr, YouTube and deviantArt, it seems most of her fans still think that "she is so inspirational, since she is so passionate about her hobby" and honestly, I think that this echo chamber is her biggest problem currently - whily trying to milk money out of everything, she still thinks that she can treat art like a hobby most of the time and only do the things she likes about it. This is probably why she despises comissions, doesn't listen to her instructors at college and did an animation and has absolutely no discipline.
You can't call yourself a professional if all you ever do is making Kickstarters (and barely earning a dime), have no more than 2 cheap items on your online store and draw your OCs for months and months just for yourself. That's ok if you're a teenager earning their first bit of pocket money and taking their first steps in that direction, but not if you're basically finished your education (or dropped out) and have absolutely nothing to do the whole day. Doesn't matter if she pumps out 20 pages a day, a free-to-read comic is no source of income or even advertisement, the way she does it.
I predict that by the end of next summer she will either have to change something drastically, have a "regular" job or have her most depressed phase yet. As long as she can't take the art industry seriously for what it is (no matter if it's comics, illustration, design or something else) and doesn't adhere to its rules, she won't be successful and she knows it deep down.

well, look at the newest pages - the story is basically non-existant at this point and everything consists of random scenes glued together. Since her fans seem to like the "GAY" the most she could basically draw her OCs making out for the last 100 pages and they would be overjoyed.

No. 778576

She won't though. She'll keep pushing back the ship dates forever and ever like all scammy kickstarters do. She's probably looked at how other kickstarters have just never delivered in years and thought that's how she was going to do it.

She's incredibly stupid and shortsighted, I have no idea how she manages to keep shooting herself in the foot.

Seriously, commission work can feel soul killing sometimes, but it really is good practice and good money if you're popular and capable of working quick. Holly's just mad because she has to draw characters that aren't her gay animu boys. She has zero discipline. I don't know what she expected to do with her art degree because if you don't have the discipline to do client work then you're stuck teaching.

No. 778593

I keep trying to pin down what category she falls in when it comes to online artists but, she fails at everyone.

She's not like Sinix or Johannes Helgeson where she's in the industry with a steady job and knows advanced art techniques and gives helpful advice. She's not like Baylee where even if her art isn't the best she can go to conventions on the regular and actually make a profit because she has no idea what to spend money on and how to budget. She's not like Doxy, Sakimi, or Slugbox where she draws any kind of mass audience appealing porn and gives up all dignity to keep herself afloat with Patreon. She's not Jazza,Draw wiff waffles, kasey golden, lavender towne, lemia,emily artful, etc. where regardless of art quality they have a following because of their personalities they can make ad revenue because she shut down her main channel and now it's going to be hard for her to get monetization again.

She's just in this weird limbo now where at one point she might have fit in the category with jazza, lemia, etc. if she didn't always get into drama and abandon her old channel. Now it looks like she's trying to go the Jellie Bee route and be a manufacturer and artist without an idea of what he actual hell she's doing. I can't wait for her to try this and inevitably fail because she can't stick to one thing and try to grow it slowly and not rage quit when she doesn't see profit/results right away.

All together, assuming everyone pledged the minimum; it should add up to $1,643.

Tinfoiling, but even accounting for the usual few large donations and a couple of small tips this doesn't explain an extra $800. either friends and family are pledging (significantly) larger amounts out of kindness/"investment", or (less likely) Holly's out here with a mule pledging a large amount in one go making it look like it's going faster than it really is and also to assure she reaches the goal and gets the money (getting around the all or nothing format of kickstarter).

Tunfoil; Holly probably thinks that she can nab the money, buy the laser cutter and then use the money she thinks she's going to make with the laser cutter, to order the print run of the Kickstarter and have the orders out by May.

Which is pretty disingenuous, but not surprising considering how untrustworthy she is with other people's money. Money she didn't ever earn.


I agree, she's just been riding off her popularity, but I think if she doesn't drum up interest she'll dry up into a husk soon after the laser cutter/Kickstarter drama.
Or it'll propel her into more followers who will stan her. Either way she's a train wreck who just wants as much money for as little possible effort.

Personally I think she's hoodwinked people for long enough. The buck has to stop somewhere, even if she is milky. But I guess you never know.

I’m so ebbing confused about her finances. I thought she was raising a kickstarter so that she can get out of her house? Or is it to fund print copies? or is it the laser cutter? She’s mentioned wanting all 3. If she’s getting out of her house $2.5k could last a month or two while she wraps up projects.
Goddamn I wish I could raise $2500 in a few hours. She should’ve made some stretch goals. Are all her supporters from YouTube or Instagram?

No. 779453

If she uses the money for anything other than the printing she is losing all crediblity and shows how completely uninterested she is in her projects.
Kickstarter is no gofundme, the money is ONLY for funding certain projects. If she wants some cash so bad she should either get a job (because uploading ugly comics on Tapas is no job) or get it into her thick skull that even good artists cater to their audience by doing loads of comissions and regularily update their Patreon.

In a kickstarter you SHOULD justify your requested goal splitting up costs and telling people how much goes where.
You know, out of transparency, you’re supppsed to give an estimate or why you need 2.500, what goes into KS taxes, how much does the printing cost, how much the shipping, if there are extras…
Since kickstarter is made to help you actually get the thing done and not scam/profit out of people, you don’t just put a goal and hope it works.
She only said it would cover the printing cost. Which is unlikely. And yes when you promise a sketch inside or a book you draw them one by one, otherwise you list it as an exclusive print.

This idea will work well for simple geometric patterns or things like flower and plant designs because the wood aesthetic fits nicely with them but, with characters people prefer something with color which is why acrylic charms, enamel pins, buttons, etc. are much more popular. So if someone were to order these wooden charms from her, they would probably sell them at a con once and realize they don't sell well and never sell them again.

I can only see those artists that almost exclusively draw plants and flowers like Jenny Journals being even remotely able to pull this wooden aesthetic off. Not to mention (and not to sound like a bitch insulting pre-teens) but, people that buy charms at conventions are mostly pre-teens to early teens that aren't gonna be into that wood look and are gonna opt for something colorful. Hell I'm in my 20's and even I don't like the wood look.

She really needs to sit back and think about how high of demand there's gonna be for these wooden turds. (Hint: Barely any)

Thanks for the reply, I figured this was the case since I don't see a whole lot of people selling wooden charms.

Buying a machine to produce things is a long-term investment, but Holly doesn't seem to understand what that means. She just wants to eat the whole cake and not have to worry about consequences until she hits a snag.

The moment something doesn't work out for her, she starts bitching about how it's broken or it's somehow the machine's fault. She's going to be backed up on orders and those same people are gonna be stanning her because 'guys look how much she's suffering and working so hard she's only one person'

One person is capable of making a lot of dumbass choices. And she always chooses the most difficult way to box herself in to weave her little sob story after. No sympathy for her, or her ugly little charms.

I seriously used to think that Holly actually had a knack for product design despite her lazy art. I mean stuff like the comic templates and 'official' sketchbook slam sketchbook seemed like easy to sell product ideas. On top of that Holly used to make stickers and other merch of popular fandoms which I felt would sell moderately well despite the mediocre art. It's just sad to see Holly take a huge step back and start selling stupid things like oversized prints of her comic that doesn't even have a full chapter out yet and ugly, super detailed wooden charms of a comic that has no plot to speak of.

Nigga 5 to 6 sketches a day is a good deal; the rest of the book is reprinting so it’s like getting $50 per sketch. That’s $250-$300 a day.

It's unnecessary to calculate her earnings in any way, shape or form, she won't get much either way. She drew the whole comic for free. The Kickstarter money will be used for printing and later on, the laser cutter. She won't sell many books outside of the Kickstarter and her hype regarding the cutter will die down within the next few month, at the very latest once she realizes there is no demand for wooden charms.
Either way, she will be broke again pretty soon.

Yeah, money runs through her fingers like sand, after this she's probably gonna try to get her gears turning on what next compulsive money making scheme she can attempt to pull off next. We all know that cutter is going to collect dust after this campaign.

Jesus Christ and that’s the minimum 4 hours, it’d probably take longer due to how inefficient she is, or maybe not because of how low quality it is. Both possibilities suck. 1510 hours, at 40 a week that’s 37 weeks. And we all know she doesn’t put in 40 hours a week. 37 weeks! A whole year (at least) of her life! Not just for the $5,000 she’d earn, but also for the time spent. Who would do this to themselves? It’d be far more profitable to print what she has, and then start a new and better comic based off what she learned from here. Who would devote this many years of their lives to a half baked idea from high school? Your first isn’t your best. Im interested to see how long it takes for her to actually redraw this whole thing. My $50/sketch calculation was way off.
Why is she redrawing this? Her ego? Or her over attachment to the idea?

tbf i would rather holly spend her KICKSTARTER money on heart buttons and stickers (idk why she wants to buy the whole maker when i think its more economical to just get them outsourced, this is coming from someone who literally owns a heart buttonmaker but i do cons & shit) than having her be like "my next stretch goal is….. financial stability," but i feel like she should be using the money towards the shit ppl are giving her money for, its not like its a "general holly donation pool" its "dollars to deliver products into peoples hands"
does anyone own the first run of purgatory and is the art fixed in it?

No. 781320

I have the limited edition kickstarter version of the first volume. She was still using brush pens when she made it. By the end of the book, the lines are thinner because she switched to digital.
There are also more backgrounds in the beginning, but she got lazy and relied more on white voids, which is a shame. Her comic would be more tolerable visually if she continued to make backgrounds, but nope, just shitty potato heads, gaping mouths, and broken feet/ankles.
Also, Simon looks completely different by the end–less like a kid and more like a big chin uwu yaoi boy. And Damien started off being like two feet tall and looking like a tubby toddler. It's jarring how different they look, and this is all before the jump forward in time to when Simon grows his hair out. If this were a series of volumes spanning over years, like say Berserk, I could understand the change in style, but for it to change so drastically in one book , it's Not Good™.
It's very odd (and such a waste of time) that she's planning on redrawing the first volume when people already own physical copies of it. Now, I basically have an obsolete copy. She should just finish Purgatory vol. 2 and be done with it.

I should also add, though I only remember a little bit, that I think she did redo the beginning of vol. 1 already, so this would technically be her 3rd time redoing it, not including the original version of Purgatory (the one she disses even though general consensus agrees it was way better than what she's making now.)

No. 781344


I do cons too and I'm slamming my head against the table. First of all we know how well SanJapan went the fist time for her so if she gets accepted this year I'm eager to see how much money she looses this time. Secondly, Why the hell do you specifically want a heart shaped mould for your button maker? I got my 1 1/14 inch one off Ebay with 1000 button parts included for only $120. She's trying so hard to be that artist with the best equipment and she's just shitting money out.

Say what you want about Baylee Jae but, atleast she's not dumb enough to do frivolous spending like this. She bought her Cricuit cutter on a whim but, unlike Holly she knew she frequents conventions enough to have it pay for itself in no time. She still uses the same round button maker she always has. She hasn't bought a fucking laser cutter, or book binder, or some other thing you could easily outsource.

Holly might have her online store but, she doesn't do the work load needed to get the things she's wanting to buy ie. Convetions etc. Even alot of people that go to conventions don't make their own product. I can get it if she wants to be a manufacturer but, shes diving way to deep to start out with.

If she's not doing fanart she might as well kiss any income goodbye. The main income you get from conventions is selling art through fanart. If she's doing generic things like a cat and dog, succulents, witch, etc. and putting them on stickers you can also make money from those but, if she's just planning on slapping her Oc's faces on something NO ONE is going to buy that shit. I know she wants to rebel against the norm and make money off shit that she creates but, you would have to have such a huge following that you could put anything out there and people would buy it.

The storytelling gets even lazier as Holly rushes to end this comic once and for all. She could have made the drawings more dramatic or moving but of course not.
Attarah's/Hitler's son is not fazed at all by Simon and Damian being gay? She's trying to make us believe this religious cult is so homophobic but not a single character shown has behaved like being gay is a sin or been uncomfortable or surprised by Simon and Damian's relationship.

I'm so confused. Why would Attarah throw his son out ? Why would no one in this small community where everyone knows (and judges) one another take notice ? Why is he cool with them being gay and ready to just pack up and leave when he seemed super indoctrinated ?

She wants to wrap this up as quickly as she can but she's drawing things out instead. She could have had a montage of their preparations to leave in just a few pages, then have something go wrong when they escape (Attarah trying to stop them, most likely, so that Simon can resolve his bullshit Stockholm Syndrome by having to fight him to protect his dad and Damien) then have her epilogue.

I hate this garbage comic so much, I read it all from start to current this week and none of this shit makes sense. There’s no impact and no point to any of the drama, there’s no payoff for anything.

There’s no real insight about how any of this affects him aside from the slight breakdown he has (before he has that breakdown he just kind of shows up and acts seductively with atarah like it’s super normal, there’s literally no mood or any kind of actually impactful indication that it’s fucked up that he’s acting like it’s normal. There was no build up to this change in Simon bc there was a dumbass timeskip) I feel like I read an intro and then skipped to the last volume, there’s just no substance here.

But in all seriousness though, I highly doubt she's going to be providing for her sister and niece. In fact I think it'll be the other way around, because she has no stable income. She probably has to pay for one or two things and is just exaggerating about how she's paying for everything.

Yeah except I call bs on that. She’s repeatedly changed version throughout the years, contradicting versions.
She only pays for her food, then she pays for everybody’s groceries, then she pays bills and food, then she pays rent bill and food, one time she stated to pay for the whole house. Best bet is she offers to help with some expenses, but I doubt it since she’s ALWAYS spending money on useless stuff. And honestly I don’t think that the same mother who accepts the jobless brother every time asking nothing expects holly to pay the full rent. Come on.
She’s always lying. Like when she said “well YouTube isn’t my job anyway”, so WHAT is? Is she making believe people she’s a professional comic artist? Where does she think the sweet kickstarter money comes from? It’s not for her ability as comic artist but from her YouTube career as a joke and entertainer.

Her work ethic and way of holding her pencil is a perfect recipe for a potential wrist injury. So maybe she’s not doing it to just attention whore.

Her “draw until I burnout completely” way of doing art is not only unproductive but is eventually gonna damage her wrist completely.

Her sister drove down from Seattle to Texas when she came to move back there, and she got her cat sedated with valium by a vet for the trip, and later on at the motel, the cat tried jumping from the bed down and broke its own neck and died. Like… WTF. Holly thought it was funny and said she knows it's sad but she couldn't stop laughing when her sister told her (the sister was devastated)…

She claims she loves her cats (although she has said before she hates her dog and wants it to die already) but she also stated that she feeds her cat human food like ice cream cause "he only lives once, so fuck it" and "cats don't live that long anyway"…

They probably have a pre-applicant list that they can easily pull names from. I can't remember if it was a lottery system though or what. But if Michie is going to come, too, then that means they probably have a spot carved out for them from the previous year.

So if it is a lottery, then no, they don't have any curation/jury or standards.

Which is a shame, because someone much better could've had those spots instead.

Oh well. I kinda wanted her to not get a spot but now I can't wait for the inevitable milk. splurging and then not making a profit pattern.
She's definitely not going to recoup the cost of that laser cutter going to san japan assuming michie is coming, and holly end up footing the bill on at least a part of michie's travel cost like last time, and assuming she won't be making any fan art like she said.

>"when you advertise something for comics, I thought it would really do something special"
I don't know why I find this so funny. I mean I get it, you expect art supplies to magically make you good, but a lot of the time it's you and your own abilities. I used cheap ass brushes to ink with fountain pen ink, and honestly it works pretty well.

Though I will vouch for that damn black ink. Tonnes of my favourite comic artists use it (Daniel Warren Johnson, for one) and it really is some good ass ink. But yeah seriously it's really frustrating when she flip flops between like 'i'm full digital now!' and 'I'm all traditional now!!' like binch you don't have to pick either or jesus christ.

so many of her videos show how much of a try-hard she is - from her tutorials to her supply tests, she tries to sound so knowledgable, while drawing with mediocre skills, no idea on how most things work (line-weight is a thing, Holly) and, of course, never without bashing either her fans, her pets or herself. There is nothing positive or educational about her, the only reason she has a huge (young) following is because her fans KNOW they can surpass her eventually, shich is what draws them to her in the first place. It's all one big lump of negative feelings, really.

No. 785542

I sometimes wonder if Holly is dyslexic. She makes an inordinate number of misspellings/mispronunciations, like calling the Cocoiro pen "Cococoricho" in this video. Purgatory has a ton of obvious typos as well, which I just attributed to her general sloppiness.

she's such an idiot and impulsive af, holy crap

She's subfeeding herself. Everything she's ingesting are empty calories and of poor nutritional value. Sugar and salt excess WILL make you fat by retention even of she's not eating more than 1500 calories a day. Also you gotta count how is her calorie spend. If she's spending around 1000 kcal a day because of her lazy lifestyle, she's still overeating. I am getting myself in recovery mode and going to the gym 3-4 times a week with heavy lifting and I still am stuck at 1300kcal per day

as a matter of fact, jetpens has a function where you can compare pens by color, cost, if they're waterproof,etc. She just didn't look hard enough and decided to just throw money around.

Umm hate to break it to you anon… But unless you or holly are like 5 feet tall or under what you said doesnt make any sense… If you're not losing weight working out and eating less than 1300 cals then you're not counting right because that is too low for weight training and muscle growth which would just make you lose weight.

Even if she's not doing anything all day she's still burning more than 1000 cals, thats why you check your bmr. Even someone who's 4ft 5 and 70 pounds still has a bmr of about 1100 calories a day, so unless you're an anachan I don't see why you would think she would gain weight doing nothing and eating over 1000 cals since she's much taller and weighs more than that

New to this thread, I mostly post in OT, but anyone looked at the new Purgatory pages? It's supposed to be Simon's big reveal and it's about as good as the rest of her shit.

Here's one of my favorite parts, aside from the tonal whiplash

No. 787199

The spelling/grammar mistakes are horrible in these last few pages, but it really takes the cake when it happens during scenes like this that are supposed to be serious. It's obvious she just wants this done with, which is sad because it just makes it even more obvious that she used the rape plot for shock value instead of actually caring about the issue.

No. 787208

Everything in this comic exists for maximum "poor woobie uwu" effect. This last crop of pages really drives it home. This character goes from being a drunken cult-raised dirtbag to a sensitive, supportive shoulder (uwu) for Simon to cry on (uwu) within a matter of pages. Because who needs characterization, right?
Holly really squandered the cult setting by making the supporting characters too tolerant and accepting of Simon and Damian. If Simon's father had disowned after discovering his son's relationship, that would create tension and conflict. If Hitler's son had reacted in denial or anger to this revelation, that would be interesting. Purgatory just limps along with no tension and no point.

No. 787210

I really wish she would take chances with her writing. There's no reason for this situation to work out how it does.

I have a vague understanding of what this comic is about (I only occasional skim through whatever was posted here and quit reading the thread around the bnha zine dramu)… Is the white haired one so angsty? Is he the one that was raped or was it his boyfriend? Or were they both raped?? I thought that guy who's being nice to him was supposed to be the bully who hates le gays or just them. 'Hitler' or whoever the fuck the atta-something is, aside from kicking his son outta the house (why did he do that?) what exactly did he do that his son hates him? Why is the cult bad? Is this like some doomsday cult that sacrifices babies or forces everyone to 'disconnect' ala scientology, or what? What the fuck does these people believe in aside from hating homos? And wtf is up with the white haired guys mom? sage for autistic questions about holly's fujo comic.

No. 787226

The white haired kid is the one being raped by the Hitler guy. The dude he tells in the pages just posted is Hitler guys' son, not to be confused with same face black haired kid love interest Damien. We're supposed to believe that this is a society so deeply entrenched in religious dogma that they sacrifice people and are forced to worship. The religion is never expanded upon other than being hinted as vaguely judeo christain so I guess that's why gays can't exist or they are sacrificed? Anyway the entire thing is so poorly written that nothing happens for 100 pages including any sort of world building. Just the two kids talking and being sad. They are suddenly together with no actual content involving them getting together just they start kissing inexclibly and are secret boyfriends. Meanwhile the presumebly straight priest that looks like Hitler starts raping Simon uke boy puss because he looks just like his mother.

All and all very basic shitty straight fujo writing. Sinful uwu soft boi is raped and is ashamed of his sin. Vaguely has feelings for Hitler? Who knows.
