I've been wracking my brain trying to remember a word for a try-hard, pleb artist! It starts with a "d", if I remember correctly, and I'm sorry if the details aren't enough and such. You know, even the definition of this supposed "d" word I can't remember, I'm also quite hazy with. Though I think the general gist of it is mildly derogatory but in a "stating the facts" kinda way. An artist that can't be great or masquerading to be great or something... Starts with a "d" I think... Oof! Any suggestions? Answers?
I think the word you're looking for is dilettante.
a person who cultivates an area of interest, such as the arts, without real commitment or knowledge.

1@EdwinAshworth fair enough, I suppose. Maybe try closing these questions before I answer them if it bothers you so much as to warrant a downvote. Or maybe it's helpful to the OP that I answered the question. Apr 30, 2017 at 14:43
1@EdwinAshworth to take your comment literally though, no, I don't agree that deleting my answer would benefit the site. Closing the question would. The answer has nothing to do with it. Apr 30, 2017 at 15:24
1@Cascabel point taken and I'll keep that in mind, thanks. Apr 30, 2017 at 18:49
