It’s not all about packing detail into a drawing; it’s also knowing when to pull back. Any amateur artist could render a painstakingly detailed illustration, but that wouldn’t make their work more “pro” than the artist in the background, who, to my knowledge, is a professional animator.
I really like simplified stuff, and I think trying to establish atmosphere, emotion, and action without as many details could actually be harder for some people. In any case, less ranting, more drawing.
