Everyone saying soul has no meaning is wrong. You cracked the code, anon. It's sorta magic but it can be explained like that, art becomes charming when you can feel the creator cared about putting a story of sorts inside lf his illustration so even if it's done by a kid, the SOUL can still be felt

But I'm sure plenty of artists studied it and their work still feels soulless when they don't put their whole heart into drawing
