The styles we like will never sell unless it's mainstream. To say you like something else would only be surviving a nish market, there for you must be as pretty but generic as possible.…or is that too cynical of a stance?
An inspiring developer but mostly artist. You can see my artwork here.
(Qualified to give proper critique for art.)
It is safe to go with things that we know are selling but you never know what people will find interesting. Some games are hit whitout being typical and mainstreem. I didn't really ask about what will sell too. I feel like I want to know favourite art styles comparing to what you actually can draw(or style that you draw). And since most of us in this part of forum draws...
I find that a younger audience of females (I based this on all my other female friends who play otoge and GxB dating sims) prefer the anime bishounen style because it really entices them. For me however, I normally play VNs and otoges with a various range of art styles, ranging from cartoon-type to very semi-realistic. I still end up preferring the anime/manga stylized design because it's what I easily get used to.
But as long as people find something interesting I think they'd be willing to try something out regardless of the art presented.

With the four fairy tale images you gave, I can see these work for certain stories but also have great restrictions. Based upon stories I've read before but can't remember the names of this style does not work well for sprites with varying expressions. You can use them in stories that use almost exclusively CGs but that would be very demanding of your art budget.
Want some CC sprites?

Art styles at large I enjoy; Stephen Silver, Butch Hartman, Glen Keane, Snotgirl (Leslie Hung/dairyfree). I don't mind anime/manga inspired styles, but I don't default to that myself. I prefer strong silhouettes, expressions and bright colors. High contrast, textured... Overall, stylized realism, I suppose? It's hard to pinpoint.
