The day before yesterday was Melanie Martinez’s 22nd Birthday! (April 28th)
As I’m sure most of my followers know, I’m a huge fan of Melanie. I feel really bad for not posting this on her birthday, but I had my hands full trying to create some decent fan art, and my Dad just came home from work for the weekend.
So, in honor of Melanie’s birthday, I present to you some terrible fan art. 😉
What I wanted to do first was find a super cute picture of Melanie on Google, and draw it. Here’s the photo I tried to draw (I took a screenshot on my tablet):

Here’s the original picture of what I was trying to draw:
I’m not sure exactly who created these, but they’re awesome. Credits to the original creators!
And of course, here are some gorgeous photos of Melanie I found from Google. 😘
She’s so pretty. 😊
Happy birthday Mel!
