I hear ya OP. My thing is classic American comic artists like Wally Wood & Bernie Wrightson, but most of the children here don't even know who they are.
At the end of the day, just gotta accept it's mostly a weeb board and find the gems where ya can. Honestly a bigger problem are the troll, crab & drama threads that offer no beneficial content at all.
Anyway, you're better off spending your time drawing. And if what you do is different than weeb style, it'll differentiate you from 98% of the crap out there. Get good at whatever you do.
BTW who is the chick in the OP pic? She's hot.
