Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* In ''Film/TheRebel'' starring Tony Hancock the Hancock character is an artist who thinks he's a genius despite having no talent whatsoever. In an effort to prove himself he goes to Paris and shacks up with a genuine art student. His roomie surprisingly swallows all of Hancock's pretentious guff about art theory and decides to copy Hancock's "naive" style. Naturally the roommate's art ends up getting mistaken for Hancock's and Hancock is hailed as the greatest thing since Picasso, while his ''real'' art is dismissed for the rubbish it is.

* ''ComicStrip/{{Nero}}'': Nero takes up figurative painting in ''De "Z" van Zottebie'' and is so awfully bad that a bunch of crooks sign him up to sell his work to them. Unbeknownst to Nero they are actually art forgers and thieves who use Nero's bad paintings to get through customs, so that the guards who see this awful work will assume to all of the collection is the same and won't bother to check the rest, which are stolen or forged art works.

* ''ComicBook/JohnnyTheHomicidalManiac'' features Happy Noodle Boy, a "Comic within a comic" about a [[TalkativeLoon gibberish-spouting]] stick figure, drawn by the [[SociopathicHero main character]] himself. The segments are deliberately done to be so awful, they actually [[SoBadItsGood end up extremely funny]]. The creator, Jhonen Vasquez, also uses them as a nifty way to illustrate Johnny's current mental state?
