All commercial art, but yes, totally true and totally sad. It upsets me that we can't have attractive people when the majority of both sex prefer playing with attractive cards. Of course, there are a lot of ugly girls that like to play Magic and I'd assume that's the majority of 'em
who are offended because of how insecure they are. Why is this a thing that only really applies to ugly women though? Magic and comic books are full of ugly men enjoying them and the characters being handsome buff-dorito shaped Gods only makes them more appealing. And why is this just an issue with Western culture? Source: see any anime.
At this point, I think the old guard has just left and we're being left with young R&D that just don't really understand what goes into character design. Probably picked up from the Pixar generation.
