I-I've seen your work before. I've tilted my head onto my hand and sighed, softly admiring the creativity and imagination and technical mastery as I gazed with stars in my eyes at an example of the skill I hope to one day possess. "I will be this good," I would mutter to myself as I sketched my dreams. "I will be this good."
P.S., your snakes are cool :P
"Less bad" does not equal "good".
