Hey art nerds! This is a thread for everyone's favorite starving artist, Becca "All give and no take" Hilburn!

Becca Hillburn is an artist and art supply reviewer currently living in Nashville, TN with her living ATM/fiancee. She's behind the blog Nattosoup as well as her very own YT channel. Her primary claim to 'fame' used to be art supply reviews and field tests, but now she's most known for her bitterness and mediocrity. Egotistical and whiny to a fault, she'd rather sit back and play pretend art teacher to her 2-3 student workshops and sell 2 dollar prints at 12 cons a year than use her Masters to get an actual day job. Her primary personality trait is her two-facedness, presenting as a pleasant and helpful teacher upfront while harboring whiny resentment and bitterness beneath. She's also the artist behind '7" Kara' - an all-ages webcomic about Becca's ADHD self-insert ripping of The Borrowers and Thumbelina, rendered in muddy watercolors that she could totally do digitally. Becca shills the fuck out of this comic, going so far as to get physical copies printed for her to sell at cons and donate to lending libraries.

>Has been on YT for several years but even with her 'popular' blog cannot manage to break 10k subs. The vast majority of her videos hardly make it over 300 views.

>Nothing is ever her fault. Blames 'baby artists' and fans for depending on her too much without giving her anything in return (as in, not throwing money and love at her feet).
>Considers herself a watercolor expert despite her muddy, poorly-mixed colors and weak grasp on composition.
>SCAD alumni. Apparently didn't network enough to land an industry job out of school.
>Allegedly used to spend 7k a month on video editing - even though her videos are meandering, rambling, poorly shot messes.
>Obsessed art supply hoarder. Begs her fans to email art supply companies on her behalf to send her free shit then turns around to complain about having no room for any more.
>Goes on about her ADHD so far as to make an entire vlog series about how it sux to be hur guise.
>Actively resents her tiny pool of viewers and students, talking shit behind their back about how they don't support her enough.
>Made her obviously uninterested fiance 'interview' her at a cons… Just so she go on rants about how underappreciated and overworked she is.
>Has a hateboner for the online stationery retailer Jetpens.com (which she insists is an art supply store) because they refused to send her PR after she harassed them for it. Claims that she's single-handedly responsible for popularizing them, despite Jetpens being an established retailer before she started giving them 'free promo' at cons. She vagueblogs about them on a regular basis despite following their official social media accounts.

Thank you for making this thread!

No. 895691

Honestly I remember when she was first brought up in the salt thread and many people said she was nice, even if her art ain't perfect. But now it seems that was a total farce, and that her art's not only not that great but she's got an awful personality too.

I understand being frustrated about not getting recognition for what you do, but sometimes you gotta start to realise that what you're doing isn't working out, and that you should change gears and try something else instead of constantly pushing for doing the same thing and expecting success.

A sample of her 7 grand worth video editing. Minimal edits, just some background music and title cards and a transition every once in a while, barely any cuts. Poor composition (what is all that trash on the left of the frame), dull raw colors that could have been corrected for that price, muddy audio… and no thought put into making it more palatable to watch.

She does post three times a week but 7000$ a month? She was legitimately scammed.

I think her videos would be more watchable if she switched to voiceovers because she goes in long boring rambles and barely any part of her process can be sped up, she will also sometimes cover the mic and doesn't do retakes. People on Youtube, specially the kids she's aiming for, love quick and snappy editing on videos. Hers remind me of channels run by elders except without their ASMR factor, her voice is so loud.

No. 895747

Am I being too gentle with my brushes or am I right in thinking she's a bit too heavy handed and rough with them? I mean, it's just watercolor, you don't have to go that hard. One of the perks of that medium.

She shits on her few supporters so much that I can't tell if she made the comic to get fans or to gather a hater following so she can be passive aggressive at specific people without being called a bitch.
Also, everything she draws and paints looks like it's from a low-budget 90s cartoon. Having a cohesive palette like >>895809 would help the muddiness, make the shit anatomy and questionable perspective less obvious, and would make the comic less painful to look at overall.

She HAD to be mispeaking when she said she paid 7k/month for editing. Maybe she meant 700 a month or 7k a year? Still way too much but more reasonable. Don't know what her fiance does for a living but I doubt his income is even that much a month.

>I know going to art school doesnt necessarily make you good artist but holy fuck she has a MASTER'S in this. What a colossal waste of time and money to not even come out with prospective job contacts.

This is what confuses me about her. How could you go to an art school for the 6 years it takes to get a Master's and not walk out with a single job contact. Not a one. It makes me wonder if her personality was so cantankerous that nobody wanted to work with her. She's 32 so if she went to university out of high school then she graduated around 4-5 years ago. I thought art universities were primarily used for collecting contacts and networking.

No. 895953

Iirc she went to a louisianna state college for her bachelors in art. For her masters she went to SCAD, which is an actual art school with successful alumni, but also pretty much a diploma mill. They have pretty much no standards for art quality when they choose students to accept, all they care about is if they can pay tuition. They are not known for forcing students to learn intensively or even really gain a lot of skills, I know several artists who went there who are unemployed and have mediocre skills at best.

No. 895955

That's pretty much all art school is good for. If you manage to graduate without any job offers or contacts, you fucked up. I know people who dropped out halfway through and still left with multiple job offers.


Ah. Explains a lot.

No. 895967

I'm so glad I never got a degree in art, nobody you're paying has the guts to say "you're bad at this, maybe try doing something else." You have to find out the hard way after buying the degree… in Becca's case, very long after.

No. 896000

I found out about her from her art marker showdown posts and her supply reviews. She seemed pretty chill, but apparently it was all just a farce.

When I was toying around with the idea of doing a comic, I looked to her for some resources, and I'm kinda glad I didn't go through with that.

No. 896011

lol I found her through reviews of cons before she got involved with kiriska and how to be a con artist. She was super chill on her blog seemingly, but I think cuz she’s been doing cons for years and trying to get her mediocre comic off the ground with no payoff and now that social media is more integral to art, she really needs a therapist or some shit instead of spewing on social media how she feels entitled to success.

That being said, I just saw she’s planning to kickstart her book or something and I’m excited to see her eventual blowup cuz it won’t work out

No. 896048

I feel like now would be the worst time for her to try to kickstart a damn book. She barely has an audience. What's she gonna do? Complain until people give her money? It hasn't worked before.

No. 896080

Why would she film her students and point a camera at them for 2 hours….I hope she at least asked if she could film but, why point it at them? You can’t even see her PowerPoint or anything, what’s the point

No. 896297

Did Becca change her catchphrase? In the latest video she says "heeeey arty friends" instead of "HEY ART NERDS".

If this is what all her classes are like, then I can see why she averages at 3-4 students. Becca seems like such a dry, uncharismatic teacher, and this goes on for almost two hours. It's like she's giving a powerpoint presentation for a high school class she doesn't give a shit about. Looks like her class is a majority older people and retirees.

Lol, the majority of her comic examples are manga. Would it hurt her to be a bit less weebish?

No. 896755

Thing is with Becca, her “style” is manga-ISH but it doesn’t look like she uses or reads actual manga cuz if she did then her comics would make a fuckton more sense or just be better in general. There’s so much GOOD manga out there now, not to mention the classics like Tezuka and Urasawa, that she can’t lean on the crutch that manga is so “mysterious” and unknown, like every weeb with an internet connection reads manga. Her style seems more lifted from someone vaguely remembering what sailor moon dubs from the 90’s looked like except they were going blind and hadn’t seen them since.

Im so tired of these basic ass white women artists trying to get on with styles obviously lifted from manga, Becca just does it badly. It occurred to me since I frequent the baylee jae thread that she and Becca are quite similar in style ways but Becca wishes so badly to have the audience that baylee has

Yeah and most of those don't have such a massive appeal that everyone knows them (I've seen none of those) because the concept itself is so. Fucking. Boooooring. Just like her stupid pointless comic. If she would just move the fuck on already…

No. 897187

Honestly, can someone even tell me what her comic is about? Like, I get that it's about tiny people living among normal humans but is there an actual overaching storyline? All I ever see Becca draw is her gape-mouthed self insert standing around doing nothing. Does 7" Kara actually have a plot? What about it is interesting? Also, why hasn't Becca realized that the teen to adult fanbase she's trying to capture wants nothing to do with her 10 and under comic?

No. 897191

Oh hey, this bitch! I met her at a few cons some years back. Her and I and a circle of friends did cons “full time”, as in we both made our livings off of it. Except she would rarely ever break even at cons and she would try to teach all of us how to “make it” as a con artist. I wasn’t raking in money like old school Amuria or anything, but even my circle of people did better then her. Her table ALWAYS seems empty. Her husband funds her trips and she never makes enough for profit, only breaking even if she’s really lucky and it’s a really local con.

People never bought her prints and shit, I only ever saw her getting money from penny dirt cheap commissions. She was always working on them from open to close and beyond because it was the only way she could make money. I remember she would put up reviews of cons saying they were shit and business was slow so it’s not worth going, but I was across the aisle from her and it was fine all weekend — her table was just a desert wasteland.

Then at the end of the cons she would always come around asking us blatantly how much we made, which is super rude. She would tell us that she runs the How to be a Con Artist thing and that if we needed tips to email her. But she never told us how much she made… and no one took her seriously.

Anyways Sage for blogpost but this girl is delusional to the nth degree

Oh god, she’s one of /those/ con people. I’ve seen too many like her in my own local con scene so I know exactly what you’re talking about. She’s very similar to a group of guys I know in town who make shit tier comics and get pissy when people don’t buy them at cons. Like they don’t get why it’s so unappealing to everyone but them. The only difference between them and Becca is that they have day jobs and none have a SO to take care of them financially.

Also, asking what people made while not disclosing your sales is such a tacky and cunty thing to do so I’m not surprised by this.

Becca strikes me as dated. She's like watching a teenager from 2002 trapped in a 2019 30 year old's body. I don't blame people for not approaching her table at cons, traditional art does not compete well with digital art if the art itself and the use of the medium is not very good and her ideas are dull looking, ie, she was selling dark wood charms a la Holly Brown when the teens and very young adults that make up most of convention attendance will gravitate towards acrylic, bright colors and things that pop. If you can't tell what something is until getting super close it's not a good sign. But of course as someone from a time capsule she's pretty bad at digital art too and sticks to default brushes and settings.

The (lack of) editing in her videos is also boomer tier, what can I say. There is a video of her doing a voiceover tutorial and mid way you can hear her talking to her SO loudly and voices overlap because she didn't even mute the visual track. Her attitude is that of a milennial though lmao.

No. 897202

Samefag but to further my point, a recent video in which she went to Kyoto's manga museum and cried because american anime inspired art was represented and she finally felt validated unlike those 'mean school teachers who laughed at me!' It's like her brain is stuck.

Yikes, this was hard to watch. Asides from the weird thing going on with the camera that made everything wobble, her saltiness at other people working on zines is unbearable.

Yeah. I've been thinking about that. Hardly any of her endeavors have any sort of audience, she can barely manage to break even at her cons. What makes her think this KS will be anything but a total disaster? I'm half expecting her to lowball the cost just so the campaign doesn't fail. That, or she makes her fiance back her project anonymously to artificially inflate the demand for her comic or to keep the Kickstarter from failing.

No. 897997

If she’s so valiant about “assussuhbillitee” of comics why kickstart it at all? Just make it free to read online and get a day job to pay the bills like the millions of other people who also feel passionate about the development of the youth and volunteer their free time for them

No. 898003

I've been in the same webcomic-creator circles as Becca before and running a kickstarter for your comic is 100% a vanity thing. Most people have small audiences, but set the goal very low, think $500-$1000 dollars. Printing an indie comic in a small run isn't necessarily expensive at all, thanks to sites like Ka-Blam, so successful kickstarters for no-name comics are not an anomaly at all. Take something like this for example:https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1691223860/heroic-shenanigans-volume-1
Of course, this is assuming she decides to be reasonable and set her goal to something low and realistic. She'll be out of her mind if she asks for more that $1000

No. 898011

No. 898040

If Becca really cared to be able to sell her art she should be able to look at actually successfull artists and study what makes their art attractive to the average consumer, you can't expect to sell the same amount of products as a pro while having super bland unappealing art like Becca, its just proof she doesn't really care about selling a good product but just wants the perks of being a popular artist while demanding people to buy her crap art, that KS will be a failure either way

No. 898052

She seems to legitimately think that successful artists just have the success fall in their lap without any effort. Her bitter discord rant about Kasey made it obvious that she has no real understanding of how hard most arttubers have to work to get popular - not only do they have to produce a lot of artwork consistently, but they have to be good at marketing themselves and social media trends.

Can't believe Kasey is just another evil baby artist who sucked poor Becca dry and then went on to be massively more successful than her like some kind of watercolor vampire /s

Kasey's personality is as bitter and shitty as Becca's so I can see why they used to be friends, but unlike Becca, Kasey actually works pretty hard tbh. Maybe Becca should let go of her unwarranted ego for a minute and realize she will never succeed without any work ethic.

Usually you'd say when the student becomes the master the old master did a pretty good job too. lol But in Becca's case. I can see why she's bitter and jealous about that but, honestly, that's stuff you only think in weak moments and should never announce publicly. And instead of shitting on other maybe think about oneself, what's the stuff she's doing wrong, what's Kasey doing different to her, etc. pp. But as we all know Becca's not capable of honestly judging herself and her public image.

I dont understand why she always has to mention that her comic is watercolor? I dont know if I've ever seen her mention her comic and not mention its medium. I've seen tons of watercolor comics, its not that unusual of a medium? And even if its not as typical as ink or digital, its probably one of the more conventional mediums still. Hell, i've seen experimental oil paint comics and other much more unconventional styles and they never use the medium as a selling point

No. 898649

I didn't realize how cheap her stuff actually was- and even then she barely sells many at cons. I wonder how even less she would sell if they were average priced.

I think it's pretty common to be unsuccesful in an art because it's a risky field to be in, it's just that most of those people wouldn't want to make it worse by embarassing themselves online and ruin the little chance they had of ever being hired anywhere… like Becca or Holly

No. 898795

If you go back in her blog far enough to the con reviews, she also does $1/$5 commissions too and that’s what mainly sells for her at non-craft faires, mostly cuz like she never has anything for anime cons (idr if she’s done comic cons) that people actually WANT. plus she tries to shill her comic at them when like, people who do anime cons have stepped up and surpassed her by a great deal. Like for real, her commissions look like what you’d pay $1/$5 for, but seriously like how low is her self-respect in that you’d work for below minimum wage.

Like, she also has the aura of someone who’s so scared and unsure of their own work that they become defensive with massive overconfidence even though she seriously lacks the skill and it feels like she thinks she doesn’t have to learn anymore cuz she has a masters. The opposite is true of actual, good pro artists like a ton are just super humble and also keep learning in addition to also being teachers. I’m also wondering if Becca doesn’t do cons as often anymore cuz there’s so much more younger people who are way better at everything

Watercolor is one of those mediums that is really easy or really hard. Doing light, messy washes like Becca can look really nice, but you need strong pencils or inks to go with it or lots of layering and hard contrasts if you're not doing the line work. She does neither so it looks like shit.

No. 899081

Oh wow, I briefly encountered Becca once on Google+ (which gives you some idea how long ago it was). The details are fuzzy after all this time but I recall she was complaining about how no one buys her comics at anime cons. I suggested, like, try comic book cons to sell your original comics, but she was adamant that she had to sell at anime cons b/c some editor reviewing her portfolio told her that her comic was "OEL" so she could only sell it at anime cons. (OEL was a dumb marketing term used by TokyoPop referencing American comics that were vaguely manga-ish - again this tells you how long ago this was.)

So yeah, doesn't sound like she's changed much! At the time I think she'd just finished SCAD & was funded by her mom; she seemed to think having the degree meant she should be automatically making a good living doing her comics. She seemed very naive and extremely stubborn about listening to advice.

No. 899086

>OEL was a dumb marketing term used by TokyoPop referencing American comics that were vaguely manga-ish - again this tells you how long ago this was.

This is hilarious because OEL was a term only really used by Tokyopop and I think Antarctic Press to pass off otherwise completely Western comics while still calling them 'manga'. It's kind of a death flag for comics. Even otherwise decent comics slapped with the OEL label went unsold just because weeaboo kids buying Tokyopop manga would pass it up in favor of 'authentic' titles. That editor sounds old and out of touch and Becca's dumb ass is stubbornly eating up that advice.

Becca keeps going to anime cons because they're more numerous and she's a weeaboo. She's just like Holly, consumed with wishful thinking, getting ego boosts off of seeing people buy their shitty merch.

maybe a nitpick but her consistency is shit in her storytelling too like if she doesnt know what a video is how would she know what a photo is, I mean she's learning everything from basically just this house, right?

No. 905864

I don’t think you’re nitpicky because you’re right, her value hierarchy with figures is lacking, like if she does any value studies she clearly doesnt understand the importance of it especially with local colors. Like in that first panel, she understands darker things need to be in the foreground but the cat blends in with the figure of the girl, why does it have to be there and why can’t it be lighter if it’s farther back? The tiny girl sticks out in the last panel cuz of relative value but why is her hair blending in with the darkness? Why does she also change positions without explanation?

I also agree with >>905422 and this goes with the whole thing about value, like how dark the skin of the girl is is borderline offensive because she has no idea how to render black skin other than “dark”. Like the skin of someone with more melanin and pigments in it reflects the light a lot differently than it does white skin but the way she colors this girl is like if she’s never looked at a photo of a black person before. If she going to keep sticking to this style where she renders watercolor instead of doing something that suits her line work better like flat color washes, then she needs to learn how to render better and use colors correctly.

Well if she is reading this thread, I hope she knows she’s doing a disservice to people and kids by teaching them incorrectly and showing them she’s unwilling to learn and grow through others and continual learning. Just because you have a masters degree doesn’t mean you’re a good artist

Yeah I think the unicorn girl actually is a lot better than her art right now. Like it’s digital so she didn’t muddy it with rendering and the understanding of clothing and anatomy is way better than her comparison image

Why does she always leave the rendering lines and sketch in stuff like this? Including this “convention sketch” she probably did for five bucks. It doesn’t look good with her style, it just looks like she’s too lazy to erase it since blue/non photo blue/red is used in the reproduction of a drawing.

Lol the thing is is that she DOES. If u look up any of her watercolor tutorials on her website, she does tape her work but she uses hardware store blue painters tape. Also I don’t know if she knows loose watercolor paper sometimes needs to be stretched/sized since a lot of them will be coated in a thin protective layer of sizing (usually it’s gelatin) and that fucks up your painting ability if it hasn’t been washed out. But she’s also just a shit painter

Honestly if she’s so adamant about “testing” art supplies (aka getting shit for free from jetpens cuz she’s an “educator”), she needs to try new tape like gummed paper tape or just a watercolor block cuz clearly her material choices are garbage and whoring yourself to companies who will give u free stuff isn’t working

>[I prefer not to sell at] superhero cons, where they treat girls, like, super crummy

Nobody goes to a con expecting their originals to sell, having that audience is a rare gift. You can tell she sets herself up for failure and forces conversations back to herself/her comic all the time

Also, the cheery hyper voice is really fake and really irritating, makes me feel like a toddler.

No. 906934

Jfc she is stuck in 2009 if she honestly thinks women are being negged by dudebro comic artists at comic cons still. Like I'm sure there is the occasional outlier but it's not the same as it once was.

No. 906942

She released volume 1 in 2014, consisting of 4 chapters. She’s done 4 more chapters (and a bonus chapter I guess) in 6 years. She’s been trying to shill the same book for 6 years with nothing new? Of course it’s not selling

No. 906965

Yeah a “superhero” con that’s super heavy in artist alley like emerald city up in Seattle is more than half women and nb artists. I know she’s on the AANI on Facebook so she SHOULD know that a majority of women do tons of cons and while there is occasionally weirdos, like grow a thicker skin and work on your marketing.

Tbh I expect this kind of slow pace with someone who works a day job but other than “teacher”, which it does t sound like something she does more than occasionally, what the heck is she doing??? Plus if she’s been working on it for so long, then why hasn’t she developed any shortcuts like most people do when they’ve been consistently working for years?

She seems to think she’s god’s savior to weeb artists for some reason just by virtue of age?? Which she never ever was nor does she change her ways in the evolving media/marketing spheres. Like it sounded like when she did her masters in SCAD, they barely had a sequential department and she had to create a ton of her own curriculum, so she thinks she’s an innovator in that means but like, get real Becca you only had to do that cuz scad took your money but didn’t know shit, that’s how a for-profit art school does. People don’t need to learn from her, she’s better off becoming like an elementary school art teacher rather than becoming even more of a bitter bitch cuz nobody listens to her cuz her tools and style are outdated as fuck

No. 906971

There are definitely plenty of other artists out there with better nuggets of wisdom than the entirety of what "knowledge" Becca has shared, who aren't even an ounce of how insufferable Becca is. It's like she wants to think the internet is as small and clueless as whatever tiny ass bumfuck town she lives in and that she's truly the weeb art messiah.

Part of me thinks she honestly doesn't care that much about art. How do you go about doing art for so long, even going to get a masters for it, and yet you still put out… this? She just wants the validation and the praise.

Seeing her only get to far and have to resort to making passive aggressive comments to her audience is like some sort of karmic justice lol. Becca has such a nasty fucking attitude, I'm glad she's stuck at the bottom of the barrel. Imagine just how much more insufferable she would be with hoards of fans patting her ass and giving her undeserved money. I'm surprised she's gone this long without getting kicked off her high horse yet.

No. 907050

She made an entire video bitching about another artist a con with titty art that was backfacing from their table that could be seen from her side… she went on and on about how she was so “kid friendly” and was offended on the imaginary kid/parents behalf. But she puts that image on the thumbnail as something she sells at her table. Lol ok Becca. Tits are terrible, traumatizing and harmful to the development of children unless you’re shilling it.

OMG, I never thought about how long she's working on this comic. What the eff? And then there are artist's like Dina Norlund who coloured her comic in like, what, half of December (her plan were five pages a day for ten days). kek

Srsly, Becca needs to get her shit together an stop waisting her time with complaining.

No. 907370

She talks as if every artist who does tutorials and draws webcomics are doing just as bad as her but in reality there are tons of artists who are just doing great with their webcomics or their teaching careers cons, commissions etc. It seems as if she has never stopped to think that the problem might be her, that the content she produces is just super boring unappealing shit nobody wants to buy. But no, she'd rather blame everyone who doesnt throw money at her

No. 907374

Why is she so fixated on "young" artists? It's so weird. Like that's her go-to scapegoat for anything, from her non-existent career to Wikipedia dying someday. You would think someone who targets children with her work would understand that they are much less likely to have money than an older audience.

>they nickel and dime it out of me for free

So not only are you a terrible artist, but a terrible businesswoman. But it's such a mystery why you're a broke nobody…

Seriously. There are so many ways to monetize your work that are loads easier than oversaturated platforms like youtube. Skillshare would be the best format since she likes to make tutorials so much.

Her youTube videos are rather short and she doesn't edit them herself so there is not that much time spend. Although she does a lot of them.

I work with watercolour myself, and yes, they are time consuming because of drying time but still. I think it's quite easy to colour more than a double spread a day if she would switch between pages while they are drying. Also the size she's working on seems rather small and her stuff is far from beeing full of detail or challenging perspectives.

The first volume has 110 pages, let's say the second one does also. That's 18 pages a year the last six years or 1,5 pages a month. Even if she spends half a year or full year on working on story/ research and sketches, she's really, really slow.

“Look at me, I’m SO. SELFLESS. Look at all that I do for all of you ungrateful shits.”

Does Becca think there aren’t tons of other small arttubers who do the same thing as a passion project? With how much she constantly has to state that she’s taking her own precious time, resources, and knowledge to do it, the less and less it comes off as a passion project and the more it just screams “GIVE ME MONEY AND VALIDATION (BUT MOSTLY YOUR MONEY!)” Her and Holly feel like opposite ends of the spectrum to me.

Yeah, this. Becca is uniquely impervious to any insults, advice, or suggestions. She's 100% convinced her artwork is great and it's the audience's fault for not recognizing that, and she's also convinced that she knows exactly how to market her work, despite all evidence to the contrary. She is like Teflon, and reality is but a small amount of cooking oil that will easily slide off of her.

She really is the anti-Holly Brown, who hates herself but inexplicably has a huge following.

Most artists I know get RSI’s in some way from drawing but half of them are not dumbasses and went to doctors to address shit. Biggest example is the comic artist yuko ota, who wrote a book/drew a comic about the nerve damage in her arms and learning to draw with her non dominant hand (she’s a similar age to Becca just more prolific and well known).

If her grip is causing her pain and damage, she should see a doctor instead of whining on the internet but she lives in America in a shit part of the US where there isn’t good poor people insurance so I’m willing to bet she either doesn’t have it or her fiancé has shit tier. I wouldn’t put it past her to whine about not having insurance to go see doctors on the internet for points

No. 908089

I noticed that many american / canadian artists (at least those doing YT artentainment who went to for profit diploma mills) have bad grip and issues with joints. Which is super weird to me, because if you go to traditional art school in Europe they make sure the arists have proper grip simply to avoid issues like it. I've heard that a very talented girl didn't get accepted, because the teachers saw her bad grip and posture during exams and told her to come back when she got it right. I had to take an art course for credit and the teacher from that art university made us effing stretch before and after 3 hrs long lesson. I kinda appreciate it now.

Looking at how Becca draws, my fingers curls on sympathy pain.

No. 908235

It’s a NA thing but with Canadians, they have universal healthcare so everything is covered cost wise but usually it takes months or so to see a specialists and sometimes I think someone like a physical therapist or masseuse are not covered by their universal care. It’s still better than Americans, we’re basically kind of fucked for preventative shit so getting treatment is hard, especially on a freelancer/poor person’s income and if you aren’t on healthcare plan through a parent (provided you aren’t over 26) or through a spouse or you did service in the military (through the VA).

But yeah, it might have changed slightly since I went to school, but most art schools don’t do anything that involves stretching or taking care of yourself. I don’t know if it’s a fully American thing, but there’s also a point of pride for lots of people to continue working their bodies past the point of pain, like if you listen to any stories about the animators on the first toy story a lot of them recall breaking their bodies to finish it. And fundamental classes definitely don’t stress the importance of grip, I just remember like they taught us cursive writing more in elementary school rather than something useful like how to hold a pencil correctly. I’m hoping with more awareness now especially online that there’s more of a movement to not mess up your body for art but who knows.

She’s definitely gripping too hard but she’s just like a baylee Jae where she doesn’t do shit to make her life better even though she has the means to. Like it’s pretty easy to recognIze you grip too hard if you develop pressure calluses and doing steps to prevent it like wrapping styluses in foam or learning to draw lightly. But just like her, Becca is stubborn and will not do anything to solve that

No. 908237

She’s bullshitting herself if she thinks that’s a good comic technique. Like if you want your characters to wear so much stuff, then make an art book or supplement for it? Stick to character/clothing design? Her story is already impossible to read and she doesn’t know how to plan pages and pace it in a manner that makes sense, like this just makes it stupider to parse if everyone keeps changing clothes for no reason

No. 908269

the stupidest thing about her comic is that there are so many other ways it could've gone. she couldve had a little person adventuring the world or a little people war or something but instead she decided to go the cliche overdone little person secretly meets human and learns about human things schtick that literally every other little people story has

so I just noticed that she holds her pencil in a way that pushes heavily into the junction between her thumb and index finger. now I know that everyone has their own way of holding the pencil that's natural since it's how they've always hold it but isnt the point of it being natural is that it's unconscious the most comfortable way to hold to them? cause I mean it doesnt seem to be because she does a lot of heavy linework.

There’s a lot of coping mechanisms you can learn when you have ADHD so you can function, like from experience it’s a struggle but it’s very common enough now especially in art twitter to find the resources you need.

But yeah, Becca is the type of person that is also “everything is everyone else’s fault and not mine cuz I’m putting the hours in” kind of person so she’s far from being cognizant of her disability and how to work

No. 909303

She probably “babies” her pages so much like a traditional illustrator does instead of realizing that you can’t do that as an artist because of time. Like there’s so many ways you can make a watercolor comic page fast with shortcuts or make a page look like a watercolor in other ways, but she’s so set in her way is the “right” way that she’s too thick to realize she needs to speed up if she wants to tell her story or sell a book in any capacity. It makes me realize she probably has never worked freelance or worked with a very strict turnaround schedule for another person or a director before?

No. 909954

That's not as "glamorous" as being a convention artist, I guess.

What DOES she want? Like, does she expect her youtube channel to take off any day now? Does she expect people to send her money for literally no reason? Does she think being a con artist is actually a sustainable income? I don't really understand her goals. It feels like she's trying to stick her finger in every pie (youtube, cons, classes, reviews, webcomic etc) but she is mediocre at every single one so none of them succeed.

No. 909971

Comics/webcomics actually did some kind of streaming con in 2014 started by Danielle Corsetto of Girls with Slingshots called ComfyCon where webcomics people had panels and held sales in their online stores for it. Iirc it was moderately successful because people actually READ the comics the creators were from and they had reach on social media. Becca went into this cuz she had a grudge against mechacon, she was too slow for FCFS and couldn’t beg enough to be put on the waitlist, and didn’t have an online store or a good streaming setup

Becca making her own streaming con and going to the lengths of setting her fuckin table up is just too funny and her expectations that people who would go to mechacon would see her LOL. She acts as though she’s the draw for these people when it’s like, you’re kidding nothing but yourself Becca

No. 909982

the biggest flaw to her bussiness plan is how she states that she dislikes making fanart and will only makes fanart for stuff she really likes. Who the hell is gonna discover her and be attracted to her stuff based purely on her original art. And in addition, she talks about it as if people should flock to her regardless, that people should prioritize their sales around her. "Selling kara means more to me then selling fanart" "if you can, please buy kara instead to support me* btch its not their job to buy your stuff, it's your responsibility in drawing customers to you

There's a difference between supporting her and enabling her to put his money into a comic nobody reads, expensive editing for shitty videos nobody watches, and conventions where she sells nothing. He looks miserable in videos and she's obviously bitter and upset 24/7. This goes way beyond "support".

If Becca wasn't so insufferable I might actually feel a bit bad for her after reading this entry.

I can't believe she actually thinks she has an audience though. I figured most of the people who would stop by her table at cons only knew her for her 'how to be a con artist' shit and not actually for her art, or were random passerbys with an impulsive shopping habit and saw cheap commissions available.

She mentions fleeting popularity, but what popularity has she ever enjoyed? And yet despite realizing that cons cannot be depended on as an actual source of income, she refuses to get an actual job (art related or otherwise). I know the post is 2 years old, but still. She also only got 2 commissions during a 6 hour stream. Did she take 3 hours per commission or just stare blankly at the camera for most of the time?

No. 910291

I've only been tabling two years and am fully aware that the number of people that buy things from you at a con and then follow you online is small. She's delutional. The teenagers buying things from you at anime cons are not your 'fans' Becca they just want souvenirs for their mini vacations. She's so inside her own head it's unbelievable

No. 910340

This. It's not a situation of supporting a partner while they accomplish their dreams, he literally does EVERYTHING for her. He had to give up pursuing his own art career and get a normal job to support them both. Meanwhile Becca spergs into the void 8 hours a day and refuses to even get a part time job to contribute. She even admitted that she's made zero progress in the last decade. It is beyond time to throw in the towel but he continues to play caretaker/interviewer/punching bag to his womanchild fiance instead of putting his foot down.

Out of all the virtue signaling I've seen from internet artists Beccas is by far the most fucking annoying.

No. 910728

Judging from the hoard in her house from the videos she posts, she could easily just donate supplies she isn’t using for children’s charities instead of begging for donations to buy a kit and then donating it. Plus, no one is going to watch the fucking video so what’s the point? Does she do this shit to keep busy instead of working on her own crap? It’s no wonder she never improves.

Considering how much Becca begs and bitches about money, I don't think he is comfortably supporting her. Which makes it all the more confusing that he seems to be moving forward with tying the knot, but I guess he's just given up at this point. Sunk cost I guess.

No one on this good earth has EVER asked for an Artist Loft product review, and especially not from Becca.

oops, wasn't trying to imply he is comfortably supporting her, just that in the really small off chance he is, he would probably rather have her have any kind of income.

I'm curious what he does for work, didn't they meet at art school? If he also has an art degree but isn't working in that field he probably isn't doing something that pays a lot, probably a dead end desk job that pays 50k a year max, if that. Certainly not enough to warrant spending 7 GRAND A MONTH on an editor. Even with a dual income most people could not comfortably spend that much per month on something like that.

No. 910980

I watched all her con recaps and it’s sad that they’re all basically the same- losing money or just making pennies. She keeps saying “this con isn’t a big moneymaker for anyone” and that everyone always did as poorly as her during every con but that’s definitely not true. Ive gone to SPX for years and people’s books are always selling out, there’s a reason people fly to table there. And her complaint of no editors walking around- they are there Becca, they’re just not approaching you.

No. 911054

I have a theory that part of the reason Becca is so delutional is that 10 years ago when she was new to the con scene her competition was much more basic and on her level and now she just sees her own improvement in tunnel vision and doesn't seem to realize how far ahead of her people ten years younger than her are. She just blames it on 'kid lit' not being popular (which, it isn't at anime conventions.) but she hasn't improved in years.

Honestly though if she just switched to digital with line art instead of her hideous water color she would save time and sell more. Although I would also suggest she let go of Kara and start something completely different.

Pffft. Reminds me of pic related. Anyone who was even slightly artistically inclined as a kid had to deal with this horrible piece of junk.

Never, ever buy those kits that have like five different media in them. They're overpriced and they suck. Just buy small packages of things like paint or pencils until your kid figures out what they like.

I finally got around to watching this video and there’s a part at 16:15 where she accidentally puts the elevator audio over her main audio and it just completely blocks out a whole minute or so of her trying to talk about something. After a while I thought it was funny to listen to elevator music in place of her terribly grating voice lol. There’s also blurs that appear way too early and some that don’t even appear to cover other faces at all, like wow, $7000 a month for these edits? Yikes. Also around the 27:30 mark she talks about how she wishes the editors were given something to more easily identify them otherwise she “would try to sell to them the same way she would sell to anybody else” but does it really make a difference? If your work is good and compelling, why does an editor need a different selling pitch? I don’t sell books at cons so maybe there’s an actual reason but it just came off as weird to me.

No. 912038


Ahh yes I cracked up the first time I saw the audio part, also this is why the editors shouldnt have anything that identify them cause people would get weird around them trying to kiss up to them or making them various offers, it would be very overwhelming for an editor, I can also see becca totally doing all that to an editor and then being bitter when she gets rejected

Nah that’s exactly it. 10-15 years ago, it wasn’t as hard as it is to get into cons, especially like small ass anime cons like Becca does. Now it’s much harder cuz accessibility and social media have made much more better artists with stronger portfolios or actually merchandise that caters to people not to mention many big cons are juried now. It’s sad cuz she definitely is a member of AANI on Facebook especially since the “how to be a con artist” tumblr is one of the first places people recommend, so she KNOWS how tough the competition is and how good people are now but it’s a testament to her own pigheadedness that she thinks her basic stuff is still viable in this day and age

I am an old too so I know how harder it was more than ten years ago to learn cuz there wasn’t as many online resources, but it’s telling that she SAYS she went and studied all those books but then now refuses to learn from the world around her still.

SPX usually has a ton of good comic creators from a bunch of different genres, I’m honestly surprised she managed to get a table there since it’s a lottery based con and she’s surrounded by much better children’s comics artists like Raina telgemier.

I agree, that sort of style is universally cute to both kids and adults and has way more character. Her "manga-inspired" semi-realistic style is ugly and kinda uncanny. It's like the kind of art former weebs who learned to draw from anime make when they're trying to to learn realism, except they usually advance past that awkward in-between phase pretty quickly while Becca has been stuck there for over a decade.

No. 913490

I think I was more surprised she left whatever Midwest area town she lives in to do a con rather than the lottery but she’s done stuff like TCAF before (and mentioned the fishy things you have to do to bypass customs). She doesn’t do the con circuits and even then, only does small ass anime cons. Though not surprised nothing came out of SPX, her style is very similar to popular manga-like artists who do mainly kids stuff like faith Erin Hicks, so at a con like SPX there’s lots of publishers networking for many kids and YA comics, but her technique and inconsistency is really killing her.

Begga has an almost borderline level of 'I hate you, don't leave me' with her audience. She's obviously resentful of her wimpy audience and what they won't do for her but she's so insecure and delusional about her work. Nobody wants this ugly comic she's devoted her life to pumping out at a snail's pace. No one cares for her twitchy CWC-style rants about how she's so beleagured and overworked. Her brokeness is her own damn fault. Nobody looks at Begga "baby artists need me" Hillburn and sees someone worth supporting, and her numbers reflect that. Most of these 'baby artists' she talks about helping so much are more into people who actually do shit, like Jazza. Not some bitter womanchild who doesn't know how to dress with a 5-year grudge againts a stationary store who she still follows in case they do any giveaways.

Okay, so she puts out tons of tutorials nobody asked for, goes on record calling herself a teacher despite her lack of skill, lack of charisma and minuscule audience then gets mad when people don't 'appreciate' her correctly.

yea, the broom makes sense and i like how the skirt poofs up, though the arm placement is weird.

No. 915219

>yea, the broom makes sense and i like how the skirt poofs up, though the arm placement is weird.

It's rather about how the broom goes through the skirt in the front and skirt not folding under the broom. The width of front fold is rather small, so it would ride up a bit and fold inwards along the broom stick.

Yeah Becca has no idea how clothing works, like on the photo >>906358 posted from her behance too, she just puts t-shirts on everything without knowing how things work on top of a figure plus how clothing adds to character designs. Like she has a vague understanding of draping in your first edit anon, but it’s very “I looked at sailor moon once and now I can draw folds” because that dress would be shorter in the front and lower in the back with where her edges are. Your edit is much better cuz it suggest the skirt is a full circle with the bunching in the front, but the whole outfit is like etc especially with a giant bow obscuring part of her face

There's nothing inherently wrong about doing a comic in pencil with watercolor in the style Becca does it. The problem isn't the medium, it's that Becca is just really bad with watercolors.
Beasts of Burden is another comic done in watercolor, which uses some similar techniques as Becca's. The difference is that one artist knows that they're doing, and the other one doesn't.

Yeah, Becca's biggest failing is honestly just her own incompetence as an artist.

Since we’re also going down the watercolor comic hole here, Becca’s other weakness out of many is being stuck in the “I saw an anime once in the nineties” style she insists upon. BD’s like Blacksad are watercolor and a lot of European comics are very technically good in medium. I think Blacksad is digital now but are done in a style that mimics watercolors. But of course Becca has to be queen weeb except not actually

Also with Beasts of Burden, Jill Thompson has also been open about being slow because of her tendonitis/RSI’s too but she’s been in comics forever so it doesn’t take her five years to release an issue.

My guess is mediocre artists need to keep trying shit because they can't seem to figure out what's not working.

Yeah I didn't want to sound nitpicky but I thought the same exact thing. It shouldn't take her 5 minutes to do shit like this considering how long she's been drawing/studied drawing for. Pic related is just one I pulled from google but this artist does in 30 seconds what Becca barely accomplished in 5 minutes.

No. 918914

>>918911 Yeah becca cares more about adding "anatomy" and all those tiny details rather than capturing the form of the pose and movement, that's why all of her art and studies look so stiff, she cares more about wasting hours and hours rendering (badly) rather than focus on her drawings.

No. 918918

And the anatomy is not even correct, that’s the big thing. Like why is the back leg of that jumping one bigger than the front and why is there so much space between whatever she thinks the rib cage is and the pelvis? She uses senshistock for these, which is a perfectly fine reference model source, but because all the models on there wear bathing suits, you don’t see the musculature you need if you’re gonna use it for studies. Also how convenient is it that the last pose on the right looks like every other standing figure with mismatched legs that she draws 90% of the time?

No. 918926

Becca is definitely one of those artists who thinks the more sketchy lines and unnecessary details you add, the more ~artistic~ the sketch looks.

Also I haven't seen the reference pic but the boobs on the jumping girl seem way too low set for a pose with the back arched/chest out.

No. 918929

I watched the video so you don't have to
She didn't know oil paint needed turpentine to use and complains that she can't swatch the oils because not even walmart has turpentine (they do)

If you're going to review these art kits at all a better way would be to have a 5 minute video showing artwork using the supplies, already made off screen not in real time… and then just say the pros and cons and prices of each and bottom line which you'd recommend to buy.

I can’t find the specific pose (she said she was using the pose timer and it probably pulls some poses senshistock only puts in her paid packs) but I’m pretty certain it’s from one of the jumping packs like this one so Becca doesn’t know anatomy well enough to actually put them on the pose. I actually thought in her drawing, the bottom of the ribcage she drew was actually the boobs. The bodysuit obscures the anatomy but someone who actually knows anatomy could still make a fluid figure and not the scary skeleton monsters Becca makes up

She literally does the bare minimum of drag and dropping shit into the timeline. She can’t even be bothered to slightly cut the end of the clip off. Does she even watch her videos back? Probably not. She’s definitely quantity over quality, watering down what tiny bit of quality she already doesn’t have down to nothing.

She’s so fucking out of touch with art and comics that it’s embarrassing. We literally posted about Jill Thompson up higher in the thread with Beasts of Burden, she and like Colleen Doran and Nicola Scott have been in comics since the nineties. And western “big-two” type comics are of course predominately male, BUT if you look at indie and children’s comics, then the market is half of not mostly female? Manga, webtoon, children’s books, like the inherent perceived misogyny she has of an industry she’s not even a part of is an excuse. Like go fuckin sperg on cape comics but she’s stupid cuz that’s not a type of comic she wants to do. Artists like Raina Telgemier have been on the NYT bestsellers list bigger than cape comics and she does kids comics.

You just have to have GOOD art. And also checking out who she follows on social media, they’re all prominent industry artists and mostly female. Like this isn’t an excuse anymore, there’s been women in various illustration industries for years.

It's really such a shame, because the illustration could actually be decent with some good colors. Normally you see amateurs draw polished turds but becca has flipped even that on it's head. Not only are the values totally screwed but she has no knowledge on color theory either, like how hard would it be to do a little bit of research? This artwork seems to be middle eastern/ south-east asian themed, so it shouldn't have been so hard to do a simple google search on colors and patterns they wear to use in your artwork.

No. 921551

I’m astonished she thinks black is a shading color like she hasn’t grasped color at all. Watercolor is supposed to be a transparent medium too so going 100% black on the shadows is just so amateur and sloppy

Considering she has no idea about whatever illustration industry she wants to work in, I doubt she would spend any braincell of hers doing “research” for an illustration. Her stuff always shows a superficial understanding of anything

She claims to donate them afterward.

No. 924172

I don’t see the point in it. There’s plenty of reviews on these markers, why pay money to just see her swatch something everyone else already has done, they should use thier money to just buy the markers instead of donating it to her for her opinion.

No. 924192

Well, she's always been good at the bargain bin look. All it needs is muddy watercolours and a rant about how nobody appreciates her epic skills.

No. 924509

Catherine from Katnipp just reviewed the ohuhu markers just the other day and she was given those markers by the company. I don’t know what her goal was but it just really seems kind of cheap that you have to do a fundraiser for $35, like if your “job” of making art and videos isn’t giving you enough revenue to have a spare 35$ to make a video, then something is wrong there. Plus she has a patreon, she couldn’t just do that there?

I hopped over to her patreon and she has a long public post about being “newly inspired” to work but has ADHD. Was she even formally diagnosed or is she just self hopping that bandwagon? A lot of people in indie comics and creative industries online on twitter have adhd and I’m wondering if she just self diagnosed cuz of her issues but is now just milking it for sympathy instead of actually getting help for it

If you need to beg for $35 dollars to buy markers to review, you shouldn't be buying those markers. I've never heard of art supply reviewers asking for money to buy products to review before.

This is from the same entry as the dessert one, it looks like she just uses straight up tube colors and doesn’t mix any of her colors together, which explains why they’re vibrant but none of the colors look like they’re blended like a marker in addition to her no knowing jack shit about color theory. Her palette is super clean too,.

Compared to more better watercolor artists (this is Iraville on IG), her palettes are always messy AF cuz she mixes her colors and that keeps them harmonious (and she said in an IG AMA she never washes them out either).

No. 925769

Art like this makes me think Becca art is hindered with her using watercolors. Dont get me wrong it's all still flawed with or without but it seems like she doesn't have the foresight needed to use a medium like watercolor which takes some more meticulous planning than for something like digital art on a tablet where you can erase and easily change things if needed to.
It's still all flawed fundamentally though and the first real improvements should be made there regarding things like composition, proportion and basic color theory.

No. 925772

She pillow shades and it kills me.
And of course her lack of knowledge with values doesn't help this. Her darkest dark is just the dark red on the belt/tassels and hair bow, but that's it. It's not even that dark or in the right places, assuming the light source is coming from the top or upper righthand side.

Her work could look slightly better if she did something as simple as adding thin lineart in black or brown ink to separate the mud puddles of color. Not full hard lines.
Just something to help reinforce the forms and give more of a sense of depth. But as >>925769 says, she seems to lack the foresight to experiment and think about her work this way.

No. 925862

It’s hilarious her unawareness of everything around her cuz like, people think you’re entitled Begga cuz you keep trying to extort supplies from jetpens and running your grudge all over social media cuz you think you’re the queen of webcomics cuz you work ever so hard.

I don’t know what point she’s trying to make with this cuz is she mad at younger artists for actually working paying jobs to buy supplies? Is she surprised that labor + time = money, not realizing she literally had a fundraiser two days ago to get 40$ ?? Like ok go off

No. 925863

I think she’s too deep into making watercolor comics her “style” that it’s a sunk cost fallacy now. She’s wasted so much of her time making her shitty watercolors that she probably feels she can’t up and do something new or learn more than her shitty technique, completely unaware she’s doing damage to her career. Her old digital art imo is loads better than her current watercolor style cuz it isn’t and doesn’t have a chance to be muddy as fuck. Shes like watching a train wreck

Honestly she's such a paradox, it seems. On the one hand, she's saying how good she is for making tutorials and art supply reviews, but at the same time complains and complains about not being famous and not being recognised.
In her discord, she was saying how it's not wrong to expect returns from what she's done, like commissions or comics. She was saying how if she puts energy into it, it's fine to expect something back. When the reality is that online art, webcomics, and youtube are usually fruitless endeavours. Not many people go into these fields expecting a direct return monetarily or popularity wise. People make youtube content or webcomics because they want to, and maybe sure they might have the idea that they want to be noticed some day, but for the most part it's incredibly disheartening to expect it.

Anyway that was a blogpost. Becca needs to learn how to enjoy art as opposed to thinking of it as a money maker. Maybe then she'll start to improve.

Becca reminds me of the 20-30 year olds who've never had power in their lives so when they finally become an adult, they become a total cunt towards anyone younger than them; demanding respect while talking down at them and if they dare to speak up to you, you get the "You'll understand when you're older" excuse. Everything about becca just reeks of that and it's one of the personality types I hate the most.

She is incapable of finding fault in herself and if someone else points out one of her faults it falls on completely deaf ears.

Yeah, she always draws feet like that on her figures so there’s no plane definition so the legs are different lengths.

If she knew what a horizon line was then it’d help the image but since she’s always right and never wrong, then it’s OUR fault for her image is incorrect.

I wouldn’t be surprised if she has a personality disorder on top of the adhd, she’s a complete narcissist to the point where she can’t see any of her flaws and she’s so used to being the only artist teacher in her area and head that any critique is an attack on her.

Being a school teacher would require obtaining a teaching license (depends on the state but I think most states require one, and whatever other hoops Texas/Louisiana might put in place to get the license/keep it) and Begga definitely does not have the money to go back to school or even do one of those fast track education programs to get one. She churns out her "life passion" of a comic at a snails pace, she'd fucking shit herself having to stick to the demands of a school schedule with lesson planning, grading, etc. It would be consistent income but there's no way she would last.

No. 930584

She does has an MFA but in one of her vlogs they told her her MFA doesn’t count or something

No. 930602

Yeah she has an MFA from SCAD I think in sequentials and comic books but there wasn’t an established program for it then (like ten plus years ago I think?) so it basically was a self-directed degree for a “masters”. Plus masters in fine arts degrees are basically just portfolio building classes, she could have also gotten her teaching credentials while doing it but I think she was so jet set on being this fantasy of a children’s book comic artist that she didn’t know you need money to eat. And SCAD is one of those diploma mill art colleges too, they’ll basically give you a degree if you pay for it

Elementary school art teachers don't have to be amazing artists, but they have to deal well with children. Becca wouldn't be able to handle a bunch of kids making messes and playing around, and she would end up becoming one of those useless cranky teachers that every student hates

No. 930859

I'm not surprised they told her it doesn't count. Just because she has a masters in anything doesn't mean she's got the background or knowledge to teach in a proper classroom setting. Like >>930405 said, there's a crazy difference between "teaching" a handful of kids/adults for like two days out of the week for a couple of hours, versus hundreds of students with 40 hours in the classroom and god knows how many more outside of it. I've tried to watch some of her workshop videos but it's so fucking boring- how would a classroom of 30 kids deal with that? She also just goes on and on about a whole bunch of irrelevant shit lol.

No. 931212

Bullshit. Even if it is different settings, you can still compare them with value contrast especially because there’s no lighting other than ambient lighting.

The first one is better because the overall lightness of the watercolors helps the art out a lot even though the colors are roughly all the same and the shadows especially on the first panel are the same colors as the trees. The line work works with the watercolor better. The second one is intelligible with saturation and value contrast, if it’s a different setting then make like the last panel more obvious that it’s different, right now the house is blending into the background of like an alleyway or something? You can’t even tell. Plus the lighting makes no sense, if the figures at the bottom have shadows underneath them, then why do the shadows on the bucket and round things going to the left? Why doesn’t the house also have a cast shadow that strong and why doesn’t the clothesline and the stuff on it cast shadows? It benefits the first one that there isn’t strong lighting or she tried to do fancy shadows cuz the line work is still more solid

No. 932359

If you really zoom in on the image, in the thumbnails for each layer you can see little bits and pieces from all over the drawing. Hard to discern exactly what each one is, but it looks like every single element has its own layer (for example I think layer 24 is the 3 large leaves behind her head).

I'd bet the group is probably the low-opacity sketch you can slightly see under the current sketch, wouldn't surprise me if every limb had its own layer.

No. 932372

Jesus this, her editing and how she couldn't figure out how to screen record on her phone makes me think Becca is on a boomer level when it comes to computers. I get what she says about not having had as many resources and tutorials from a young age as kids do now, I'd understand being delayed in advanced video editing or digital rendering but this is inexcusable. She's only in her 30s and she's had the same access to those resources kids have herself for years now.

Makes me think she had too much pride to look up any tutorials and she fell off technology. Not good when she's trying to make a living from doing art online.

No. 932394

Because she puts in so much “work” into her art that she feels like she’s OWED fame and popularity and that people who have it don’t work as hard as she does, so it’s everyone else’s fault that her book hasn’t been picked up and she isn’t making money off of it. She’s delusional, of course, cuz she only compares herself to accomplished people like Miyazaki and makoto shinkai and thinks she’s at that caliber of artist when she doesn’t actually compare herself to peers or have any knowledge of the industry she wants to go into. It’s everyone ELSE’s fault except hers, which is why she keeps blaming external factors like not doing well at shows or sexism or people not appreciating original art when the fact of the matter is, she has no idea her art is bad and forgettable, which is also why nobody really talks about her other than here cuz it isn’t worth anything in the end. It doesn’t say anything but she thinks she’s the most brilliant comics artist ever cuz she has degrees and teaches

true but she also said that she wanted to convey the fear and wonder of being in a world so much bigger then yourself so it'd odd she'd make these usually large plants a smaller bred size

No. 932397

I think she puts every separate element on a layer but she doesn’t do anything like colored line art or digital coloring so there’s no real need to have separation like that. She’s too precious with preserving her sketches, especially like her keeping the blue lines on her commissions, which is ironic cuz when she paints over it, she completely washes out any sense of line art or sketch cuz she’s so bad with color and mixing

Wow, I was trying to figure out where I knew this girl from and I realized how.
First, some of these artists she is fighting with are my friends.
Second, back when she first made the "how to be a con artist" blog I used it all the time. I was 17 and couldn't work a normal job due to a health issue so cons/art commissions were my only income. I remember messaging her asking for advice and she told me my art style was unappealing and I should probably rework it. That killed my self-esteem at 17. I also really opened up to her about my families bad financial situation and my health issues and how I probably couldnt go to college and she told me to reconsider everything and maybe go into customer service. She is giving damaging advice to kids if its still advice like this if I took her advice I don't know what I would be doing, but I never went to college and I'm working as an artist in the animation industry. I do think she tries to bring people down she feels threatened by. I'm 6 years younger than her, I think, I couldn't imagine what she is saying to people even younger than me.

If she wasn’t a huge entitled bitch about everything and feeling “owed” success and publicity, then yeah this thread would be a bit mean cuz her work is boring, weak, and not notable. But this thread and what started out on the salt threads came because she tried to start a fight with jet pens on twitter cuz she thinks she’s entitled to them because she claims she brought them their audience. She’s a cow cuz she’s delusional and has no idea how her industry should work, like she blames sexism for the non-success of her comic when like nearly all of the comics on the NYT bestsellers list are all kid comics, and she’s clearly spiteful and jealous of other artists despite “knowing” more cuz she paid for a “masters” from SCAD.

I’m pretty sure she knows of the thread by now cuz she’s said like at least we’re not doxxing her, which apart from the one anon who wanted to white knight and stuff to make her know she’s a bitch, but mostly her hubris and stuck up-ness about being all-knowing is what keeps her from learning from this and other artists in general

I think she's fascinating to watch and that she's earned this thread. It's her reward for all of her hard work.

I'd been following How to Be a Con Artist and reading her materials reviews for years, but I never knew she was like this up until perhaps a few months ago when I compared her tone of writing to Kriska's in one of the Artist Salt threads. It was one of those "I thought it was only me" moments, so it's good to know that it wasn't. I noticed her tone when reading the merch articles, but I noticed it even more on her Natto Soup blog when I was in the process of learning about using watercolors in my work and searching for tool reviews. Even though I was learning, it was clear, in a lot of her reviews, she didn't know what she was doing but wouldn't admit this despite being an "expert."

It would be one thing if she were some eccentric watercolorist with an inflated ego but largely harmless. But if she were that, she'd likely have a real following.

Instead, she makes a strong effort to reach out to children and I feel as if this wasn't the case years ago. She went from 'all ages' to 'young artists/kids.' She's the epitome of >>932989

No wonder she felt threatened. She clearly had an eye for potential, but where it could have made her into a good art teacher, she chose to try and weaponize it. I'm glad you didn't take her """advice""".

No. 933538

She has no idea about color or about layering watercolors, like she uses visual shorthand’s without understanding them so she thinks you can fake dark, non-white skin when it’s not that easy. Example like in this copic tutorial, you can see all the layers he puts to recreate dark skintones because skin tends to be more luminous than like a hard surface, which is easier to fake on lighter skin cuz you can see the blood through it more. But Becca goes straight to dark and has no consideration for the transparent nature of watercolors, like her approach on dark skin is dangerously close to being a racial stereotype than it being an actual human coloring

the blotchy parts is proof that she never lets the watercolors properly dry before trying to add more color

Ironic because she went on a tirade on her discord over the fact she's a professional who doesn't use a hairdryer to dry her colours and therefore waits for each layer to dry fully. And she said that way she can work on three or four illustrations at a time.

No wonder they're all so messy and blotchy, she can't focus on one for long enough. Just use a hairdryer, solve your problems!

I can't be the only one who's noticed how her webcomic is just a much shittier version of Arrietty. I get that it's supposed to be based off of Thumbelina or some bs, but I swear I saw somewhere that she loves Studio Ghibli so wouldn't put it past her.

og it definitely is. but what makes it so much shttiter(aside from the muddy af water colors and bland story) is that her 'designs' dont convey that theyre little people at all. kara constantly wear really modern/detailed clothing that looks store bought whereas in this picture of arrietty, she wears a simple dress and uses a laundry clip to put her hair up

yeah tiny people in a large world are not super original, she even blurbs The Borrowers in her description of Kara, but she doesn’t know anything about character design even though she has “character design” in her portfolio. But same as what >>933965 says, why doesn’t Kara wear clothes that look more handmade like the actual Borrowers? And how did they get doll clothes that look like that if it is the case? I honestly think she hasn’t written anything about Kara other than like what her initial story is, like if you’re gonna invest so much into this then why wouldn’t you think this out more?

>Because they are informed that humans are moving in near their living space, they planned to move.
> Parents argument, mom is raised near human, dad's fear is baseless yada yada.
>Kara of course being rebel, tries to escape on her own and in her way befriend a human (Naomi)
> Kara likes Naomi at first, Naomi gives her food, doll house, and dresses.
> At certain point Kara has an unreasonable tantrum because Naomi gave her dress, she hurt her arm and leave.

It's not just the premise. It's also her lack of solid worldbuilding that works against her big time.
Everything that makes up the world Kara lives in, is regurgitated from some other story. The name of her little people (personally I think 'lilliputian' as a word is ugly, clunky, and outdated), the way they interact with the humans,, the lack of information on their background… I mean it's fine to take inspiration from other things, but you still have to add your own ideas and concepts in between to tie it all together, which Becca has not done.
It doesn't feel like a real, live, breathing world of little people exist in Kara's world. Kara and family just feel like more human characters that just happen to be small.

If you hadn't of explained that, I would have thought she was "oh no"-ing because they put up a chain link fence.

I've been reading this thread for awhile and just came to the realization that if she went to SCAD as a graduate she should have be able to have had access to work closely with professors. The illustration department and seqa departments have always been closely linked.

It's possible she was one of the "lost cause" students that spent more time arguing than anything, so they let her through with the lowest possible grade because she was a cash cow and was probably a great example of what NOT to do, if nothing else. No point in wasting time and energy on someone who refuses to learn.

No. 934580

I had a classmate like that when I was in art school (if you could call it that, AI is garbage). I had a pretty competent teacher for an illustration class that gave a student a D because he was tired of seeing her repeat his classes and wanted to be rid of her. I honestly couldn’t blame him because she was delusional about her skill level and pretty obnoxious about insisting on turning in animu trash.

I’d hate to have been stuck in courses with Becca, I bet her classmates have horror stories.

No. 934613

She went to SCAD and got her masters in the sequential art program and showed some of her work in this blogpost https://nattosoup.blogspot.com/2011/09/year-at-savannah-college-of-art-and.html , which is all ink and pencils so do both branches overlap? Like the school I went to had comics as a class you could take in the illustration major but everyone took illustration core classes which included one where we had to work in watercolor.

She has waxed poetic so much about going to art school for her masters and like reading this post https://nattosoup.blogspot.com/2013/02/things-ive-learned-from-art-school.html vs comparing her work now, it’s like do you even take your own advice?

Lol I went to a school that basically was “pay for a degree” and there was a ton of different people at different art levels, like the only way you could fail out of a class was to not do the assignments but you’re an asshole to yourself since you’re paying so much money for school why aren’t you doing it? But yeah Becca reminds me of just those average students who do the assignments to pass but don’t know what the current art landscape of the industry she wants to be in looks like. And since she was in a masters program too, I wonder if there wasn’t a lot of emphasis on foundations since you’re expected to have known them

What's the point of copying another story this closely like this? It's reinventing the wheel, especially since Becca's story has nothing new to add or say. It's not like she's subverting, commenting on, or parodying Arrietty in any way– it's just the same story with the characters renamed.

This is why it's important not to get married to one idea if you're an illustrator– your screwed if the idea is crap. It's better to have several concepts on the back burner.

Like it shows lots of her foundational weaknesses a lot especially in anatomy and leading the eye around the page but it doesn’t have the muddy watercolors making it more shitty looking

Also this is slightly related, but fellow art school anons does it also irritate you when people refer to teachers/instructors at art schools as “professors”? Like they don’t have professorships or PhD’s like at actual universities, they’re usually just older working artists (heck some didn’t even work in an industry after a while). it’s like the sign of those pretentious dumbass people at school like Becca who have no idea how art works

Why would it? It's tradition in art academic circles showing respect to your teachers. IMO stickling to their trade/academics titles is more ridiculous and pointless in art world- are you calling someone who only has MA level education a Master? Then PhD a Doctor? Maybe your teacher's assistant is a Bachelor? "Bachelor Anderson, could you pass this to Master Smith, please?"

It's changing only recently because of generally laxer societal rules in adressing people and what is respectable way to do it. Doesn't matter in the long run. 40 years ago calling your teacher by their name just because they are older working artists would be unacceptable. They are not "just" that, which is why they teach.

It's a you issue if you percieve it as pretentious, not Becca's.

She makes up anatomy because she doesn’t know it well and won’t learn things like muscles at all for some reason ( you can super tell because she always leaves out the trapezius and all the muscles that connect the head to the torso and just connects bones to where she thinks the collarbones are). And she teaches “volumetric” drawing but also has no idea how 3D shapes lay on top of each other, like the arm in the front that’s bent is very flat even though she drew tubes as arms. I think she does it cuz she has a preconception on how you “should” do a drawing when really, she needs something like this to be a thumbnail, supplemented by reference and more study (since there’s a lot of things that are also off about this drawing)

It's like….somewhere between sketching and lining, she starts to not see the figure as a whole, but as separate lines and shapes, kind of like how each line and shape gets a different layer when she does digital art.
It's ironic because usually the foundation of a drawing is constructed with basic shapes and lines, then built up to a cohesive figure as the drawing progresses.

Many artists (especially ones with ADHD, I speak as one myself) tend to get obsessed with something and hyperfocus on it, sometimes for years. So it's very possible that's all it is. That's also tinfoil, but also likely.
It's also possible she kind of forced herself to latch onto "the little people" as a gimmick and pushes being "family friendly" so hard because she it's her "brand" and she wants to fit herself in that crowd.

Faber Castell has a link on their page about what their brand ambassadors do https://www.fabercastell.com/pages/faber-castell%c2%ae-usa-brand-ambassador-program which yeah that’s clearly what it is. I can’t help but think she was trying to shake them for more free stuff but also is too stuck on being a watercolor artist to try pencils so just blames the company for that instead of her own choices.

I know this is an older painting, but for some reason, there is something fundamentally better about this one vs her usual tripe like >>935214
I didn't know why for a while. But now I realize, it's because this is one of the rare times she did a solid black line art over top of the watercolors. This painting is a muddy, blotchy, ill-colored mess, and Naomi looks like she has the mumps, BUT overall this is little better than her usual thanks to the line art.
It really helps disguise the color tangents, overlaps, and bleeding. Too bad she can't seem to realize this.

Naomi is so transparently a black character written by a white person. Not that that's off limits or bad always but she really doesn't even try lol. All of Naomis photos are of white people? Really? Okay then lol. This just looks like Becca's room as a teenager with a token stand in.

No. 937346

I used to do really basic video editing as a kid and it absolutely blows my fucking mind how she or her supposed video editor makes the mistakes that they do. Her types of videos don't need a dedicated video editor because they aren't complicated to edit and she's not on a rigorous video uploading schedule. It's literally just cutting out excess fluff (because she goes on and on and on and repeats shit that can be taken out to simplify whatever she's explaining) and making sure there's no issues with audio overlapping/cutting out too soon/missing (which is a very frequent issue in her videos). If she took the time to watch back her video even once she would be able to see all of these issues, but all she wants to do is immediately get them up and onto youtube for those sweet, sweet pennies (or maybe even none at all since her channel has been marked for kid's content). She's definitely a quantity over quality type of person and it shows not only in her videos but in all of her art too.

If shes highballed that number to gain sympathy, she just looks like a fucking idiot instead. It's literally the equivalent of walking into a store, handing over thousands of dollars, and getting a product that is clearly fucked up or broken. Even if she made a mistake and meant to say $700, $70, even $7!! she still looks like a fucking idiot for paying any money to anyone for the final product that they give her.

sorry for video sperging, it just really riles me up whenever I decide to check out a video of hers and there are these glaring editing issues lol

This “motion comic” is just so piss poor in its execution that I can see her sinking a ton of money on inexperienced people who are just barely fluent in Adobe After Effects.

The problem is that there is nothing about her art or channel that is appealing to children. If you look at any popular channel that is pushed for kids, it's very easy to tell why it's so successful with that demographic - art style, music, colors, etc all designed with what appeals to children in a certain age range watching youtube. Nothing about Begga's rambling, disorganized, self-important bullshit and hideous kind
-of-anime-but-not-really style appeals to anyone, but least of all kids.

why would she think anyone cares about a mechanical pencil….the only use it has in art is to sketch and maybe do full blown pieces but even then thats only people who want a challenge because most traditional artists use pencils that give them a variety of textures, like graphite sticks or charcoal. and even THEN its all dependent of the lead itself. what, is she gonna do reviews on different brands of printer paper next?

here's the thing these arent 'styles' the three non-chibi heads are the top are basically identical with SLIGHT and honestly negligible differences (i.e. if those all showed up in a comic no one would say it's off model) the only difference in the chibi style is how the iris is drawn. There's the other one that could still be the same style bust just from a more detailed scene.

She really is playing at being an artist with these half assed claims of 'substyles'. None of these look Ghibli at all.

I just checked her twitter and she just now posted a multi tweet sperg about her shitty cell coverage but she refuses to change providers. And previously, it’s actually her birthday today and she’s trying to peddle her YouTube channel as art education for kids at home with the recent quarantines. It’s been slow for her recently but with social isolation and self quarantines, she might be out of work since people have been told to avoid crowds (though I don’t know the situation in TN).

This is a stupid exercise cuz it isn’t “style”, it’s just different kinds of eye shapes and proportions. She already HAS a style and if she actually took the time to learn anatomy and her basics instead of whatever it is she does now, cuz it’s clearly not working, her style would be ok. But I think if she was clearly looking for clout, she’d be more in tune with what brings you clout in art spaces like IG and Twitter, she more is like stuck in the 90’s vision of being “the first American mangaka” cuz she still thinks she’s anime senpai

But she also strikes me as a person who has never had her portfolio reviewed seriously by other artists or like at all. It doesn’t seem like she makes any effort to get better by making friends in the art world, like the groups she was in like Ink Drop Cafe have disbanded and she doesn’t participate in like the artist alley international group on fb despite running that AA tumblr with kiriska on tumblr.

She’s also pretty out of touch with what her industry (children’s books/comics) and the art industry wants, it would benefit her a lot if she went to a children’s book convention or a art one like lightbox expo and just LISTENED and got her art reviewed but she’s too narcissistic and fixed in this role that she’s the only art senpai doing this that shes really just hurting herself

No. 957762

yeah I think her massive overconfidence actually is masking her actual non-confidence in her work, like she’s posturing at being a senpai and her watercolor being so speshul when hopefully deep down she knows her work isn’t good enough and she’s too afraid to leave her comfort zone to actually learn how to get what she wants out of it. Like it was on the other art thread I think where someone posted a tutorial from a Japanese artist that explained as like you gain more confidence in your work, your line work becomes more confident and fluid and beginner artists usually have choppy line work. Becca is the epitome of under confidence since she uses so many layers for really no reason and is afraid to erase. If she had more she should be shopping her book out to publishers and agents or working freelance like many artists. It seems like she only has plans for a kickstarter which is massively gonna fail and I can’t wait

I checked out the actual facebook page and one post in particular caught my eye. Sorry if it's been pointed out before, but I noticed that in this drawing, Kara has backwards hands.

Maybe she thinks, if she says this kinda stuff enough, it'll become true. Or she'll convince people to see it that way.
But I wouldn't put it past her to actually believe this tripe.

Is the figure on the left supposed to be holding something? It is so hard to tell what that blob is? I was looking at the hands cuz they’re the hands of someone who only copies hands from old 90’s sailor moon manga because she hasn’t even drawn the right figure’s right hand, it looks like a stump

No. 970244

It’s so weird she’s trying to market her stuff now when the Kickstarter link leads to nowhere. Like wouldn’t it be better if it was during the campaign? So people have somewhere to go?

No. 971051

Wait, she paid for an ad for her Kickstarter before starting the actual Kickstarter…?

Every time I think her decision-making can't get any worse, she somehow surprises me.

No. 971145

Her art is so ridiculously bad. She obviously rushes through everything and doesn't take any time to plan or reference anything. Just slops it together to get it done ASAP.

No. 971154


I think that's supposed to be a spider?? I'm not 100% sure.

Her watercolors make me sad. They shouldn't be this fucking muddy and dark. Why can't she just find watercolor tutorials and apply what she's learned. Even if her anatomy is wonky, at least she could claim the colors are good.

No. 971176

Honestly this is just kinda sad, she's spend 6 years of her life on this low average comic that no one has ever heard of, at the rate she's going the comic might get finished when she's in her mid 30's and then what, what will she have

spending 10-15 years of her on this comic

shes 34. Shes been working on the first 2 volumes for 6 years, and said its gonna be 4 volumes. so if she keeps the same pace she will be 40 when its done.

No. 972136

She thinks because she has an MFA from SCAD that she doesn’t need to learn anymore or take any advice from others when like actually, you basically just pay for your degree at SCAD regardless of what your portfolio looks like and you never stop learning as an artist. She really is just harming herself cuz she’s so delusional that she’s this amazing artist but she’s out of touch with comics/kids comics with examples prior in the thread and her Kickstarter will definitely fail. Like her personality is so offputting and arrogant like, I doubt she even asks any fellow artists for help

Becca continuing to complain nobody gives her attention for her tutorials, probably brought up due to the current scad drama

No. 972757

Lmao I saw this and she’s said she went to SCAD to develop her anatomy and foundational skills and like, she strikes me as the person at school who didn’t do a lot of the basic drawing and shit from life because “it’s not in her style” to draw realistically. And like, it’s hilarious and delusional of her to think she’s of a level of art instruction like actual watercolor teachers on YouTube and other learning platforms because her technique is still very amateur and unrefined compared to the hundreds of other ones, especially in terms of production and technique as well. She really needs to instead, use the resources that everyone has been sharing on twitter for extended learning without school to ACTUALLY learn, or actually WATCH a YouTube video from a real teacher like James gurney or even like aesthetic artists kelogsloops or makkocino cuz she’s just super in denial that she has any chance of success at her current level

No. 972823

>The fact that I did this should be enough
Really? No one owes you anything, Becca. It's your own fault you wasted so much time making crappy tutorials that even kids don't want. You don't get a medal of honor just for making them.

She acts like she literally forged the path for online art tutorials and she deserves recognition for her contributions to art history or something

No. 972848

Becca, no one cares how much time you took out of your life to make tutorials, especially when they are just low-level illustrations and spotty information.

Does she really not understand this, or is she pretending to and convincing herself that people will eventually be stupid enough to fall for it?

Everytime she puts "support local artist/convention artist/webcomic artist/art educator/small business" shit I always feel she's just talking about herself.

I know Instagram stories aren't required to be aesthetically refined, but this is embarrassing to come from an "art educator." The texts are barely readable.

No. 973136

i know its from 2018 but this bothered me so much

-the anthology book she was in, 1001 knights, the coordinators gave copies to each of the artists to sell for themselves and they told them to price it at $50 but she said it was too expensive so she priced it at $30. This isn't fair imo because then everyone would buy it from her and the other artists wouldn't get to sell theirs. Idk it just seemed scummy.

-she bought a cricut and has never used it because she doesnt know how to….This is from 2018 and I remember her mentioning it again in her 2019 spx recap so shes had it for years and still has never used it bc she couldnt be bothered to figure out how…….

-"im somebody that needs a lot of praise and encouragement and i dont get that"

No. 973178

>bc she couldnt be bothered to figure out how……
That's ridiculous. It's basically just printer software. It takes about 5 minutes to figure it out. I dunno about making your own vectors, I assume it's likewise easy as pie if you can already use Windows 95 onward software.

No. 973272

You don’t need to know anything about vectors to use a cricut, they COME with their own software and there’s tons of tutorials on YouTube from everyone that does either stickers or vinyl. Like Katnipp at least has two, it’s what her store uses for her planner stickers. She’s really just making excuses for her own failings at this point and now it might be too old at this point to sell it.

The thing about her selling the books for lower is not just shitty on her part to other artists cuz that was less than what the physical book cost during that Kickstarter (the book cost 40$ as a exclusive to Kickstarter, so 50 is reasonable) so she’s devaluing the art of like 200 other artists, many of whom also work in kids comics and satellite industries, but also cuz she’s eating into her OWN profit as well. Like often if you’ve contributed to a book, they’ll sell you copies at cost depending on your contracts so like, by selling it under MSRP for whatever reason (I suspect it’s cuz when she was doing cons like she has no confidence people will buy shit that isn’t priced as low as her 1$ commissions) she’s missing out on profit. It’s scummy on a lot of levels but also I find it hilarious she isn’t listed as a contributing artist anymore on it

Becca's been sending out these newsletters to promo the comic and it's just hilarious. She included everything.
>Badly drawn, painted, and composed cropped images from the comic
>Assuming people care to know or would know what people in her personal life these characters are inspired by
>bragging about it taking 6 years to do 200 pages, as if that's an accomplishment
>bragging like she's the first person to do a comic in a traditional medium
>letting her cat lick her paint water and just taking a photo of it instead of preventing it

“6 years to do 200 pages”
That’s less than finishing 1 page a week…

No. 976493

The fact the pages look as horrendous as they do for the time she took in making it is extremely sad lol.

I also had a good chuckle at the part where she mentions getting insight from other artist friends for editing. Who wants to bet that’s a flat out lie? That or she did ask and she ignored any valid criticism they had.

No. 976513

LMAO wow like does she think this is how comics and books work? No company is gonna give her an advance to draw a book if it takes her SIX years to make this one, like if it takes you a full week to do a page then maybe do something else? Like if she was able to multitask this could have all been done before the century ends.

Every day she reminds me more and more of a baylee without the twitch stans, from her shitty and slow art, to the hoarding of supplies and now of the like blatant disregard of her cats in her space. Like paints have dangerous pigments in them and cats are small enough to where small amounts can get them seriously ill but lol sure it’s cute

No. 976533


I guess she doesn't realize a strong resistance to caffeine is a common thing for ADHD people and not…everyone? She really shouldn't give out this kind of advice. I mean, I know only like 10 people will see it, but still.

Can you really call it a hiatus when it takes ages for you to update anything to begin with? lol

No. 976875

this is from 2018 but it was unlisted and i found it in a playlist. She brings her weeb artist alley table to a librarians conference and her booth sticks out like a sore thumb, she breaks down crying on camera in the alley because she "had such a hard childhood because she got bullied for liking comics" and someone came up to look at her table, and she said "hi, feel free to look, im just having a breakdown, as you do" and it gave me such secondhand embarassment. Then in the car she kept going on about how she realized at this convention that the anthology she was in (1001 knights, the book she is selling for way less than she was told to) had one image of nipples in it, and one comic had some curse words, and she got mad because it was listed as "YA" even though thats YOUNG ADULT and YA/teen books with cursing isnt uncommon. She blamed the organizers of the book for not mentioning theres one image of breasts and light cursing, even though shes the one that didnt read all the way through and put it on her table. She gives me a feeling like she thinks shes better than other comic artists because shes family friendly.

No. 976890

there was a video of hers i saw a while back (might have been one of her comic process tutorials?) where her cat kept wanting to sit on her lap and she kept yelling at him and calling him stupid and it made me uncomfortable how legitimately aggressive she sounded, it seems like shes more bothered by her cat than anything from what ive seen from her videos

Like I kind of understand her logic cuz I also have ADHD and caffeine is a stimulant, like most adhd drugs are BUT yeah this is shit advice. The tolerance definitely is a thing but you need to be screened for underlying heart issues too, the REAL solution is talk to a fucking doctor and go to a fuckin psychiatrist if you need help?? Don’t tell people to self medicate if they’re actually suffering?

No. 976961

Omg like, I’m stunned that she can’t even copy the text as symbols when she took the damn photo herself like you think as much of a weeb as she thinks she is, she would know shit. But she’s like the Airbender movie but a person

No. 976970

Lmao it makes more sense now that she’s not listed as a contributor to that anthology on its main page anymore, if she’s gonna throw a bitch fit publicly then good on the organizers on distancing themselves from it. Plus that project was in 2016, like I’m wondering if people just don’t invite her to these anymore cuz she’s just a shitty person online. And yeah, like if she ACTUALLY read YA, there’s lots of very adult themes in a ton of them, like Hunger Games is a YA novel. She just is a church lady at this point too about all this, hard to believe she’a in her thirties when she’s acting like a Karen over a boob

No. 976993

Around the 50 minute mark is when she starts complaining about 1001 Knights (Please put time codes or something next time you view anything of interest so others don’t have to suffer her hour+ long ego wankfest)…
The sense of entitlement she gives off is so extremely off putting it’s no wonder no one wants anything to do with her professionally. That and her art is just so damn god awful.
