All the time, across multiple social media platforms, I see artists talk about how they're glad they didn't listen to people telling them to stop drawing in "anime style" and they love it. Similarly, I frequently see posts about "emergency commissions" and discussions of how terrible it is when folks ask for free art and whatnot.
Now I'm trying to hire an anime-style artist and pay them real money, and... *crickets*
Why? Because I don't have a major following, I suppose.
DeviantArt is a slog when your target is "anime-style characters not drawn by horny men".
