There you have it. It's not the degree of realism; It's the "C" grade in
"Meeting Audience Expectations". Take any lauded Pixar animated movie and
replace the characters with Daffy Duck - you've gone straight from
brilliantly stylized animation to a shitty-looking Daffy Duck.

An artist can of course introduce his own visual style, even if that style
superficially represents a 3rd-rate copy of something else, but this
introduction must be accompanied by a concept strong enough to engender
fresh expectations.
