If New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady plays against the Cowboys on Oct. 11, don't use the courtroom sketch artist's depiction of him for reference. 

Jane Rosenberg of New York has been the go-to courtroom sketch artist for more than 20 years. On Wednesday, she was commissioned to do sketches for the first settlement hearing in the so-called deflate-gate case involving Brady and NFL commish Roger Goodell. 

However, Rosenberg's sketch of Brady -- in the opinion of social media -- missed the mark, to put it kindly. The depiction of Brady sitting behind and around lawyers didn't capture his chiseled good looks. 

Instead, it was -- as courtroom sketches go -- approximated. 

And it went viral. The memes were flying around like fully inflated Brady passes. You can see see plenty at #deflategate

Rosenberg has cred. She's done high-profile cases that included celebrities such as Woody Allen, Martha Stewart and John Gotti. 

She told Vice Sports that she isn't on social media, but she still felt bad about the feedback on this particular sketch. 

"Tell Tom Brady, I'm sorry," she told Vice Sports. "He's a very good-looking guy and if I didn't make him look good enough, I'll try harder next time."
