The line strokes definitely resemble attack: n titan but its used far more exceasive here.
And once again, I reiterate that attack on titan isnt the conventional art. I dont see the oupils resembling chomper from one piece. Maybe from 29 feet away. Which isnt saying much.
Regardless the daily life of hell lord strives for more western techniques and what generally focus on. Even in attwck on titan, it didnt focus on the detail of fur or such. There was screen tones being used.
This artwork focuses on everything manga normally doesnt focus on. We see detailed faces all being distinct. the characters, the background, and evwn the monster looks that of a traditional western comic. Trying to take bits and pieces that resemble a style one doesnt fully understand is a big mistake.
like literally. just cover up the pupils with our thumb and save for the fact the guys natural flow isn't the same as odas, the eyes look to be the same style.
I don't want to make any assumptions about someone I don't know. for all I know this person is perfectly capable of drawing in the traditional manga style and simply chose to try and incorporate some more western like features to make it all look unique and shit.
also he said he wanted to enter this in a manga competition or something so I'm just trying to say things that would be helpful should he choose to try again but this time more like a manga. your idea of taking it in the western direction is just one of the two possibilitys of inevitability.
ps. for the record. oda draws heavily from western works to create his characters. Disney and loony toons in particular.

when you love something.. and I mean. really love it. you fight for it for as long as you can until you cant stand any longer. then when its all said and done, walk away with a smile hoping you did right.
