Opinion stated as fact does not make it so. Each person has their own likes and taste just because they do not conform to your tastes does not mean it to others who might find it quite endearing. For the most part I seem to favor Jack's tastes in artists he selects, just not in this one case. I see the talent and effort put into the work, but it is not visually pleasing to me, it is just that simple. Other painted and realistic artist have been pointed out and I love their work, just not Dennis' for this game.
Also you do have to remember here; Jack needs to make money or we do not get anymore of his awesome games, and if the majority of the people said they disliked this artwork, should Jack just ignore his customer base and keep a talented, reliable, and fast artist; but can not capture the interest of his base?
