I am sure that a lot of people would use your art style if they could afford it or have the skill to draw it.
I want to co-sign this comment from SundownKid. This art style is still essentially the moe anime art style...just more detailed and with a paintly approach rather than a cel-shaded approach...but it is the anime style in aesthetics. So I don't think this will alienate the anime audience.

The art is not bad... feels like it comes out of a painting

I don't see why anyone would get interested with the plot of the story then suddenly lose all interest upon seeing the art just because its abit more shaded than what they're used to seeing. I like this artstyle, it's very catchy and stands out. Plus, I've never actually heard of someone complaining about the artstyle not being anime so you'll be more than fine.

I really enjoy the art style! As I'm sure other people have already said, it doesn't necessarily matter the style isn't the same as what they use in anime. If anything, by straying from the typical style gives the game a sense of uniqueness and makes a lasting impression on the players.

For me, I see no problems in the art. I like how you make the 'painty' effect.
