Eh, that's actually pretty standard for any one artist with a modicrum of talent. The lead artist of Tangled had been a softcore gay porn/romance artist for years beforehand, several of the League of Legends and Heroes of the Storm designers are bara porn churners and furries with entirely open furaffinity pages; hell, Tae Kim was a hardcore hentai porn artist and not only did he do all the designs of the Magna Carta series and got his work displayed on several galleries to this day, people take his porn work so naturally his name was on the front page of Blade & Soul.
I repeat, an MMO from one of the biggest MMO companies in the market literally made fanfare and put on their front page the fact they had a big titty hentai artist design their characters.
I would too, mind you, Tae Kim is an amazing character designer and a much better artist than half the ones out there.
But I digress.
Roku clearly has the technical skills and as his old works displayed he was clearly able to make hot stuff. Unfortunately now he's mindbroken down the degenrate rabbit hole of limitless disgusting tasteless debauchery, so if anything, him getting any recognition outside his current vomit inducing porn is another testament to the wasted potential.
Hotcha, Absolute and other copycats were never going to amount to anything and we all knew this, but Roku had so many chances to steer the ship away from the dumpster fire he became. Hopefully he gets out of the phase some day.
