Thanks for this great compilation. Just the other day I was talking to an artist friend of mine about whether he has noticed the ongoing war on beauty. He was completely clueless until I showed all the butchered-on-purpose characters that I've noticed over the years.
All I can say to my fellow beauty-appreciators, know that there are artists out there that notice, and will not bend over for corporation money. Support your favorite independent artists. The only solution I see is a market created BY the fans, for the fans.
I know art is a subjective thing. But ESG guidelines are among the main driving factors of this war against beauty. To me, representing the average is boring and pathetic. Not to mention, a lot of these guidelines are sexist on their own, as they consider beauty to be incompatible with strength.
