I mostly stream on weekends in the afternoon to evening.  If I do stream on a weekday then it would be around 5 PST

Here's some stuff I drew from my live stream.  I do take drawing requests from my viewers but I don't have many so starting to double up XD

Really appreciate the comments. I figured I could post my sketches that I normally don't share (probably the only place that I'll post these on).

The reason I use pen and not pencil is because it makes me draw faster and be less concerned about mistakes so I could move on since I can't erase pen

Also i do live streams now, you can watch at https://www.twitch.tv/mk_art1661

We had a little time off but my shop has been back at full manning for a few weeks now.  So business as usual

MK, is this in the states also? Are there any safety precautions still in place like social distancing or masks?
I guess it's good to know some places have seen the outdoors once more
Sorry for late reply.  Yes, I am in Alaska atm. We have markers for 6 feet apart at the exchange and the dfac (cafeteria) and we must wear masks to get in.  Also must be wearing a mask if working within 6 feet and in cars as well.

Airforce, been in for about 8 months.

I'm also hoping I can finish the line webtoons contest, it would be easy if I use sloppy lineart but i also want it to look good so I'm not sure what's going to happen there

Life's been kind of busy, I ended up leaving my part time job to join the military.

Haven't posted in a very long time, I have some more art on my other computer but I don't feel like going through and posting that.  I'll try to post in the order I drew stuff in but I also don't remember when I drew some stuff except that it was within the last 6 months
Here is a goblin slayer background that i drew for my desktop on my old computer but with more contrast

I was drawing a Jojo emoji for discord (old computer)

Wip for a friend

My OC for my phone screensaver

My OC for my tablet screensaver

Wip for another friend

Demonslayer Fanart

Mechanical joints I found online and copied

Hellcat f6f

Aircraft carrier Enterprise

Tutorial I was livestreaming for a friend

Emoji I drew for discord

Chaika fanart for friend

Azurlane fanart of Eldridge

Ryougi Shiki fanart for friend

I also drew some of my webcomic panels for chapter 1 (story and art redone for like the 5th time)

Animation that I attempted to do of my OC, idk how to post it in MR

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.
