Kaiba has a simplistic cutesy art style but deals with heavy themes. Very cathartic and sad.
Goldenboy has great comedic timing and is one of my favorite dubs. I love the female characters in the show and the animation feels so alive and cartoony. I’m also a sucker for the older anime aesthetic.
The Big O has influences from Batman the Animated Series which is fine by me!
I keep gushing about Kiznaiver. It’s not a perfect anime, but I can tell there is a lot of heart behind the animation/story/design of the characters. I every time I look up gifs of this show I crack a smile.
I also really liked Aku no Hana. I don’t think I would have liked the show as much if it looked like a generic anime. I felt genuinely anxious over the plight of the main character because the show felt so relatable and surreal at the same time. People complained over the rotoscoping being sloppy, but I don’t mind.

I would say Zankyou no Terror has wonderful animation and great directing. I even have the soundtrack on my phone. But the story is baadd.
I enjoyed Kyoukai no Kanata’s animation despite the story playing it safe.

I can do different types of landscapes/creatures, but I’m not good at drawing people yet. I don't really have a style... Here's an ink study I did from the from the Nausicaä manga.
