Ugly is easy to do, and Monsters especially have their own criticism-defence-system built in.
ie.. 'No.. he's MEANT to look like that.'

That's why they are especially popular with teenage artists who haven't yet learnt anatomy.

Also, any kind of mass detail is confusing on the eye and fools the brain into thinking that you're looking at something cleverly made even when thats not necessarily the case. 'ooh its all covered in muscles and knobbly pipes!!!'

Elegance, beauty and simplicity of form requires a different and deeper skill set from the artist, and one that's final result is ripe for technical and artistic criticism. Its little wonder that many artists shy away from it.
