depends on the shoujo. Maybe you're comparing it to shounen? Because then it's not so much a matter of the talent behind the drawing, but rather the style... the genres are certainly drawn very differently. Additionally, many shoujo are based more on giving the readers "doki-doki" feelings rather than attempting to awe them with clean, detailed art.

it's a matter of taste ofc and also the artists him/herself...

That's a pretty shitty generalization if you ask me. Some are nicely drawn, some aren't. Depends on who's looking at it. Same goes for any genre of manga....

No. If you know where to look, who's work to search for, and are able to track your art/story preferences... You'll find plenty of talented artists in any genre.

Rather than the drawings being good or bad, most shoujo manga I've seen tend to look too much alike on average.

I don't really like the style of most shoujos. Not saying they're bad, but it just ain't my thing. People tend to have freakishly huge, shiny eyes and anorexically thin, wiry bodies. At least, the dudes do. It's weird.

I haven't read a lot of shoujo, though, so your mileage may vary. I'm sure there are some out there with really great, non-generic art.

I don't care for the shoujo art style. It isn't bad per sé, it's just not my thing.

I'll say this. It all depends. It is somewhat distinct from other genres but like any other some are good and some are really bad. I mostly read Yuri which in general looks different than others because yuri seems to have more attention paid to aesthetics. However, there still are some really bad ones. I think it's too generalizing to ask if shojo or any genre has good art or not, as a whole.

The ones I have read have good drawing. So, no I don't think they are poorly drawn. The ones I read have beautiful art.
