* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'':
** Kaeloo's paintings look like they were drawn by a kindergartener.
** DependingOnTheWriter, Stumpy can either be horrible or fantastic at art. Though one of the webisodes explained that the main reason for this is that his sketching skills are excellent, but the problem arises when it comes to cleaning up and inking out the drawing.

* In ''VideoGame/WolfensteinIITheNewColossus'', Adolf Hitler is heavily implied to be the writer of most films shown in theatres in the Reich. The descriptions for all of these films sound [[AuthorFilibuster terribly awful, preachy and nonsensical]]. [[spoiler:The latest propaganda film about Blazkowicz's capture and execution, "Die Ende Alle Bösen", is full of a CardCarryingVillain caricature of Terror-Billy [[ThatMakesMeFeelAngry loudly and openly announcing his "cowardly" plans to destroy the German people]], and reveals an obsession with eroticised rape and murder.]]

** During the [[MemeticMutation legendary]] [[http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail58.html "Dragon" email]], Strong Bad first draws a crude dragon with beefy arms and legs, before realising that it sucks and tossing it out. He then proceeds to draw Trogdor the Burninator, who, while no less crude, [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome gets a kickass theme song at the end of the toon]]. When Strong Bad goes to check on the other students, we find that Coach Z has drawn a dragon that looks ''even worse'' than Strong Bad's original attempt, Strong Mad is just carving the word "[[RougeAnglesOfSatin DAGRON]]" on the table with a scalpel and [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Homsar]] has just scribbled "Taster's Choice" on a piece of paper. Averted with Strong Sad, whose drawing is actually quite good (well, until Strong Bad sets it on fire).

* In ''Literature/TheHeroicLegendOfArslan'', Narsus's paintings are ([[TheUnReveal apparently]]) ''so bad'' that they occasionally send other characters in [[HeroicBSOD comedic BSODs]], a prime example being when he's first introduced to Arslan. [[VitriolicBestBuds Daryun]] also frequently makes comments about Narsus's lack of artistic talent, and, in the Koei video game adaptation, Narsus's finishing move is painting something so unspeakably awful that it ''sends his opponent blasting off''.

* In ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'', Dee is an utterly dreadful artist. One episode that showed her [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/itsalwayssunny/images/2/2f/3x5_The_Aluminum_Monster_vs._Fatty_Magoo_-_04.png/revision/latest?cb=20150202070827 attempt]] at designing a dress left many of the characters uncertain as to whether she was drawing a human being or not. The same episode revealed that her brother, Dennis, is a bit better as an artist, though [[PsychopathicManChild Charlie]] pronounces him to be superior to the point of mastery- not because his drawings were somewhat more recognizable as human beings, but because they were all [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/itsalwayssunny/images/7/77/3x5_The_Aluminum_Monster_vs._Fatty_Magoo_-_07.png/revision/latest?cb=20150202070829 pictures of women]] with [[DistractedByTheSexy grotesquely oversized breasts.]]

* Parodied in ''WebComic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' when a police sketch artist tries to draw two suspected murderers (Nale and Thog), and the pictures come out looking very realistic... unfortunately the setting is populated by stick figures with spherical heads and no noses, so the Chief fires him for being useless. Another officer asks what "that thing in the middle of their faces" are supposed to be.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', you can view what Pikango's painting on the canvas he carries around to various locations and it's rather unimpressive for someone who's been a painter his entire adult life. You'll see much better paintings hanging on the walls of various homes and within Hyrule Castle.

* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia2'', Ivar proudly displays some wanted posters for Ludger and Julius that drew himself, done with the level of quality one might expect from a pre-schooler. They don't actually end up using them, however (Unlike the poorly drawn wanted posters present in previous games of the series).

* Inverted in one ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' strip, where Paige's still-life paintings begin in a very photorealistic and eventually progress to the strip's cartoony style. Her parents praise the latter as evidence that her skills are getting better.

* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': At one point on the show, Fred as part of her presentation provides a crude drawing of the MacGuffin they're about to steal. Just then Angel, who was quietly doodling on a sketch pad, holds up a much much better more detailed illustration of the MacGuffin than Fred's sparking jealousy and embarrassment. He also had it when he drew a near photorealistic portrait of Cordelia, while Fred just drew a crude BedsheetGhost. Which ties back to Angel doing quite detailed portraits of Buffy, during his time in Sunnydale as Angelus; he's got artistic talent and a habit of drawing rather stalker-esque pictures of girls he likes.

* In Episode 12 of ''Series/KamenRiderDrive, Genpachiro had drawn a composite by hand of what our hero looks like. Problem is, not only does it look terrible, it is also a Frankenstein-drawing, as he drew Drive's Type Speed's forearms, Type Wild's body, and Type Technic's head, thanks to him being unable to see all of Kamen Rider Drive.
