I did a lot of drinking after drawing the woman on the right. Beer goggles didn’t help. Vodka goggles didn’t help. Appletini goggles started to help, but then I tried Everclear goggles and passed out.

I bet she looks pretty good through one of my earlier efforts at an eye...

Beauty on the left by Jack Hamm, talented artist. Unconventional beauty on the right drawn by yours truly, untalented putz.

    it’s not that you are untalented, because talent is a myth. Skill is nothing more than practice and working hard to learn how draw well. You are simply unaware, in the beginning, of what to look for and how to draw what you see. it’s actually not a bad attempt. I’d do her… and sadly, I probably already have. by accident one night a long time ago.
