I worked primarily in this style for about ten years. It gradually faded from daily use as I took on more visdev work and less band/tee/comic focused stuff.
I mistakenly felt like mass, painterly work was somehow more skillful and REAL art. It took me years to get over my self-imposed imposter syndrome and insecurity over being a self taught line-centric art dude.
Doing it again now feels like putting on a pair of old, worn but perfectly fitting pair of boots -- I need more of this in my life.
