The last time sketch artist Jane Rosenberg had to draw a portrait of Tom Brady in court, the results weren’t so pretty—her work was derided by fans for depicting a version of the New England Patriots quarterback that some likened to Lurch from The Addams Family.

Rosenberg got another chance on Monday when Brady made another appearance in court over the Deflategate scandal, Sports Illustrated reports, and she fared much better this time. The NFL star is a lot more recognizable in this drawing compared to the last one, not that Rosenberg enjoyed the process any more.

“It was a nightmare,” she said.

Rosenberg, who has 35 years of experience, says she finds Brady “very hard to draw.” “Something subtle goes on with his eyes,” she told the New York Daily News. “He has a big chin with a cleft in it.”
