So it seems like many players have voiced dislike of the 3D style art most famously done by CAH, Boolatoon, bpalm, NeoArtCorE, and a few others.
I for one am not a huge fan of the style, preferring more "traditional" anime style of artwork. Granted, there are two that I do like: Astarte (Boolatoon) and Alochos (CAH). However, that's only two out of ???, so I guess I would have to say that, overall, I'm not a fan.
With that said, what is everyone else's thoughts on the matter? Do you think there's an increasing prevalence of this art style? If so, why do you think this art style is becoming more prevalent? Is it particularly popular among the player base? Popular specifically among those who spend? Is it cheaper to get artists for this style?
