How best to channel the admiration you feel for your idol? This is the question that plagues millions of people around the world who are devoted fans of someone. Or something, I guess… There are many different approaches when expressing your love for a celebrity. For example, some people go for intimately getting to know all of their work: watching all of their movies or listening to all of their songs. Others go one step further and read up online about their beloved celeb, devouring articles, rumours, facts, anything, really, that even mentions their name. Others go still one step further: they go back in history and dig up all the old interviews they can find in a bid to discover every little detail about the life and times of so-and-so.
But there are also the more creative people. The ones who channel their passion into art. Some go for writing fanfiction. You know, short (or not so short) stories, usually smutty, about characters their favourite actor has portrayed in a show, or even about real people. Others aren’t quite so skilled with words, so they take up drawing or painting, trying to capture their heroes on paper.
That’s all well and good, and while their heart is in the right place (I think?), some people just aren’t… talented when it comes to drawing. In fact, they’re the exact opposite of talent. Some of the fan art they come up with is truly God-awful – it doesn’t even remotely resemble the celeb they were going for! Is there such a thing as “it’s so bad, it’s actually good”? Dunno, but let’s find out in this list, compiled by Ranker, of 33 astonishingly inaccurate “portraits” of celebrities.
And Demi Lovato was complaining about that mermaid fan art… smh
