How about Nononono? The art is shoujo-esque that has soft drawing style. It also has some dark moments that you are looking for.

Definitely seconding Dear, also recommending its prequel Watashi no Ookami-san. Also seconding Aria and, again, the prequel Aqua.

Also...
Anorexia - Shikabane Hanako wa Kyoshokushou
Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha.
Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi (sort of?)
Majo no Shinzou
Necromancer
O/A (sort of?)
Riko to Haru to Onsen to Iruka
Saint Seiya - The Lost Canvas
Sono Mukou no Mukougawa
Tokage no Ou
Youkai Apato no Yuuga na Nichijou

And, not exactly cute, but Toume Kei has an art-style that I wouldn't label as traditional seinen. Many of her stories have dark atmospheres too.

I'm reading Sugar Dark: Umerareta Yami to Shoujo right now and it's got pretty cute art, at least in my opinion.

Feminine Art? I have never heard of such art but let's give it a shot...
In my opinion, I find these mangas to have lovely art :
Hana ni Arashi
Glass Mask
Princess Knight
Trinity Blood
Zone 00
Bride of The Water God
My Heavenly Hockey Club (and other works accomplished by Morinaga Ai)
Card Captor Sakura (and other works accomplished by CLAMP)

I hope you find these to be useful

Soothing seinen has quite a bit of what you seek, although the plots might be a little relaxed if you like shounen.

As already mentioned:
Aqua
Aria

But also:
Sketchbook
Hidamari Sketch
Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou
Kabu no Isaki

And all of you suggesting CLAMP works like [m]XXXholic were almost in the right place, but you forgot a plot. The one CLAMP manga that has both the girly art and the plot is Chobits. Angelic Layer also has some cute art and shounen story going on and is sort of the prequel to Chobits.

I was referring to a shonen or seinen (aim for the males), but has a "feminine" (or strangely cute) art.

I know what you mean, I love reading manga for males with cute art!
I may have some useful recommendations for you. For starters, I second Pandora Hearts. It has the most beautiful art ever.
Also Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan, a seinen.
Shuumatsu no Laughter. A new shounen with nice, cute drawings. I dont know if I really like the story but it's too new to know for sure.
Shoukoku no Altair. Definitely. Every page in this shounen is like a work of art.
Shindere Shoujo to Kodoku na Shinigami. Shounen. Cute drawings.
Iris Zero. Seinen.
And maybe [/m]Code: Breaker[/m], a well known shounen drawn by a woman, therefore it has some feminine influences.

Hope I was of some help.
