Bad art

I took photos of a couple of my drawings recently. One of them is just your average mermaid, but the other is about body image:

That second drawing, of the woman in the mirror, is so very powerful. I am fat, and I hate to have my picture taken because what I see in the mirror and what I see in the picture do not match in my head. I see fat when I look in the mirror, but when I see a picture of myself, I see OMG SO FAT I'M A WHALE I SHOULD HIDE!!! Intellectually, I know it's not true, but emotionally, I don't know that. I don't know if I'll ever reach the point where I don't feel like that about pictures of me, but I keep working on it.

I'm glad that you appreciated it. I think I'm going to try to draw another one similar to it, only work on making it look a little better. It's possible I'll try to sell one of them if I can get my skills up a bit.

These are NOT bad! These are fantastic. Believe me, I've seen plenty of bad art in my time, and this isn't it.
