You mention all these animes that you would like it to be like but those are all very different in their own sense.  HxH is about nen users fighting each other while AoT is titans trying to kill humanity who can only fight with physical weapons (later on fighting with titans as well).

I generally don't think summaries are the best thing to judge a series because it's more about the journey than the idea.  From what I read it seems like you have the story setting and an idea of what the powers are going to be but you don't really mention much about the antagonists or the hook.  The hook is one of the most important things because most people will decide to read the series based on the first few chapters.  You want to get people interested with the character and/or the plot.

Once people are invested into your story then you can start to explain more about the powers and the protagonist's backstory.  While the main character is important, the conflicts and how they are resolved is what really makes readers love your story.  The conflicts don't have to be enemies but since you are thinking of a story revolving around battles then you want to have an interesting villian and their agendas (like Hisoka from HxH and how he goes between trying to kill Gon or helping him but for his own benefit).  Please note that it doesn't have to be in this order but you do want to touch on all these topics at some point.

Again, this is based on what you have here but I'll put out some questions for you to think about when writing.  You don't have to answer them as a post but just in your mind.
Do the beginning chapters get people interested in the characters and/or the plot?

What weaknesses do your character have and how do they overcome them?

Do the actions of the main character affect the way they think?

What purpose do the antagonists have?  Are they just there because they are bad or do they have some kind of reasoning/plan?

Is there an end goal for the main character?

While studying the fundamentals can help you alot, if you get completely burnt out then it's okay to slow down.  It's a marathon not a sprint to learn everything.  If anything it's harder to retain the information quickly than it is to focus on 1 thing and for it to slowly become second nature.

Also finding the right balance of fun and studying is important for you to enjoy the process.  Everyone is different with their process but for me, I tend to practice for a few hours before going onto draw things I like.

My apologies, I do tend to be a bit hands on but I understand that not everyone likes that.

I noticed some people have already pointed out the dragons should be darker but can't because you wouldn't see them well.

Another solution is to brighten the actual lightsource, I put it into grayscale so you could see the values more easily.  Generally people don't put the sun in the picture but if it is inside then the lightsource has to be the brightest part of the piece as it gives light (and color) to everything else.

Thanks for all the comments and advice.  Here is an update on some of what I've been drawing
I still need to blend the lines behind the lightsource (portal)

This one is getting close to finished

I have been trying to separate the hair strands with these sketches.  Sadly I can't show any of my traditional pieces because my phone camera is broken (I have a few pages of just drawing hair in there).
my attempts at hair

This one I drew some metal too.  I think i have the idea of how to draw it but maybe too many deep cuts in the shoulder pad?

It says he was last active here on May 23rd but he hasn't made another post since Jan 4th.  I checked his deviantart and he hasn't posted anything since 2017.

Looking back at your old post, I think it is better if you move on and try to find someone who draws in the style that you like rather than trying to get an artist to mimic another person's style.  If you are serious about your project then you want someone who is comfortable using their normal style of art as there is less chance of burnout and quitting (then you are stuck at step 1 of finding an artist similar to the last artist).

Idk how much time you have but if you're able to then I think you should enter into the line webtoon contest (i have links in my description).

Dang, sounds like karma hit hella hard for her.  Being fired for nearly bankrupting the company is gonna be hella hard to find another job.

I definitely like those sliding doors but it sucks not having locks for privacy.  Maybe you could drape some cloth over the entrance so if someone barges in without knocking then you still have some time to react.

I totally know that feeling of taking forever to finish chapter 1 (I've redone mine around 4 times now T.T)

Happy Birthday MR.  I'm surprised how old it is, I've only been drawing for about 5 years and it feels like a long time

I love my tablet so much more than traditional.  For sketching I use a thicker brush that way I can get nice shapes in quickly before I refine them down in details.  I'm using pretty much the cheapest wacom tablet but my lines are ctrl-z, ctrl-z, ctrl-z, ctrl-z, smooth.  At first it was really hard not drawing what you see but now ctrl-z, ctrl-z, it feels pretty easy.

Yet you seem to be drawing in digital all the time.  I think you can skip a lot of the tablet work if you just keep your tablet plugged in all the time (I actually got usb splitters for that reason).

I do the same lol
@Walter B
Thanks :D
I usually just read them the next day, nowadays I love getting a full night's rest
Definitely noted about the hair strands and I do have to work on for my other pieces.  Although this piece I was going to simplify the hair a bit more (you will know why later but i'm keeping it a secret for now).
Thanks, I'm looking to post here a little bit more often
