I think it's because it probably is cheaper to get renders done.And again, they put the most amazing and wonderfull artwork on the English boosterpacks that we rip and throw away, and put ugly renders on the actual cards that we play with.
I really, really, really do not understand the reasoning for this.
This is not aimed at anyone specifically, but moreso on what I'm seeing recently. Am I the biggest fan of those renders? Not necessarily, I would love to see more non-render art for V cards too, but I feel like it gets negative art-wise almost every single time a new V card is posted, and it gets a little tiring. IDK, I just feel like there are other ways of expressing opinions than calling art ugly/horrendous/terrible, but maybe I don't have such a big issue with renders. Who knows
