The Training Floor by EmperorAtma
The Training Floor
Opal and Silas in Castle Ogmia’s training hall.

Finally… here is the fully colored, completed illustration.

I’m really happy with this one. I think this piece comes closer to the scene I had envisioned in my head than any of my previous ambitious works.

In the story of Discretional Valor, Opal and Silas have a very effective training dynamic.

Opal is very serious about her combat studies and her technique is extremely methodical; she is much better at evading than Silas. She focuses on finding openings before taking action, and she learns best through observation. She often worries about hitting her comrades too hard while training, but Silas takes a beating so well that she loosens up around him.

Silas’ technique is pretty rough around the edges, and he’s bullheaded. Due to his rashness, Opal frequently gets the best of him while practicing. Silas learns best when recovering from his mistakes. Fortunately, he has no inhibitions about getting whacked upside the head by Opal in combat.

Tanaquil by EmperorAtma
Tanaquil

Mia Orenas and her multi-functional mage’s orb, Tanaquil.

Tanaquil was built by Mia’s genius father, Iuro Orenas. It is a one-of-a-kind mage’s assistant; it amplifies spells, it holds a wealth of historical knowledge within, and it floats about following Mia around as though it were a living familiar.

Mia struggles to make close connections with people, but Tanaquil has always been there for here. Though the little winged orb has no mind of it’s own, Mia always affectionately refers to it as Tana.

Mia has only ever confided her deepest secrets and confessions in Tana.

Opal loves spicy food, but food in Ogmia is usually pretty bland. When the group is traveling, she goes out of her way to find food that is either spicy, or associated with her homeland of Kiso, or both.

Opal has the highest tolerance for spiciness, Vladimir comes in next, then Mia, and Silas is at the bottom. He’s a pretty picky eater.

Stop talking, Silas by EmperorAtma

Silas and Opal sitting in the back of a carriage on the way to Lodinshire, one of the four regions in Ogmia.

Painting practice in PaintToolSAI. I like some of the coloring techniques, but it’s kind of a messy end product because I didn’t try to salvage any clean lines from the get-go. I just started slapping paint on top of everything in one flattened layer.

Maybe next time I’ll do what I should have done from the beginning; I’ll sketch something first, ink it with SAI, and then start going crazy with the coloring underneath a dedicated line layer.

Likewise! Do you post more on here, or on tumblr? I found your art through a tumblr reblog; I prefer tumblr for art-watching over DA.

The Long Holiday looks pretty cool too! Is the character in your avatar image from another comic you are working on?
