It a noble effort to try to find out what you like and that is i think what your inconsicously doing but it seem to me your chewing more than you can bite if you know what i mean.I would say your falling into a common pit fall that is to try to wears all hat  the hat at the same time this more of the domain of someone who as had a life time of exploring different aspect of art and is bored by what he as now mastered i am trying to be the voice of reason here if you allow for a minute.Would you not be better of trying to master fewer thing instead of trying to build the pyramid right away if i can use this metaphor?

Of course I see why it would appear that way. You are right in that regard, that there is soo much stuff that could be improved. And you are totally right that it would be too much to improve everything at once at the same time.
But I also have a very clear goal and am progressing towards that goal in a very step-by-step process:
the big goal right now is "finish a graphic novel". The small goal for that at the moment is "finish Chapter 1".
Whenever I post a new page I write next to it "version 1" meaning, that in the future I can redo it and improve some aspects to make it look better.
What I am posting right now is more like the very first rough draft for the story. When I finished Chapter 1 (which will be aroung page 30, maybe a little bit earlier), this whole thing will at least be a tiny little bit into the story so that it can have a glimpse of "being interesting" for a viewer.
And then I can go over every single page and improve on the composition, and go over and improve the line of action and maybe the anatomy and so on.

So I totally see why it may have looked like "wearing too many hats at once" but I am really focused on one single goal:
"finish the first version of Chapter 1".
