I don't draw firearms often, but I have to admit ancient flintlock guns and rifles are pretty awesome! :D

....not sure if this caracal guy brings that rifle around to actually fight or just to impress people. Either way, hope you like it! XD

omg I love the decorations on that armor, is it based on any particular armor? Also I like the flintlock you drew, I also like muskets etc.  but generally I am not very fond of firearms, I just don't like the modern firearms aesthetics that much.

Thank you a lot! :D  It's a Turkish-Russian mirror armor, kinda like this one s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/5…
I agree, I'm not a fan of firearms either, but ancient ones were absolutely gorgeous in term of design.  Also, people kept fighting with pikes and swords for centuries despite  having firearms, so I can still have old-fashioned sword fights too :D

ohhh! I never knew of those! They are gorgeous! x-x

nothing can beat a good old sword or a knife! (and ofc the usual spear too) those never fail you in battle ;D

I love their design, and they are also quite different from "normal" armors. :D

Truth! XD

I like how technology in your fantasy world actually advances unlike in a lot of fantasy creations.
I always found that strange like what are people doing in these worlds? You would think with the study of magic, and no anti-intellectualism that technology would develop faster than in the real world.

I always found that pretty weird too, like when for example you have a flashback that takes place centuries before and everything is still the same! :D
In my setting things are quite similar to our world though, magic is almost nonexistent and the society is very similar to medieval European one.

I think one of the funniest inconsistencies is in video games were technology seems to get worse as time goes on. Were you find some ancient armor, literally called ancient armor and it's somehow better than the brand new high quality mail you just got.

Bear in mind the element of magic.  When magic is in a world, who needs to evolve technologically?  As your races get more powerful magically, they needn't evolve tech wise.

Good point, but. Even if everyone in your civilization is magically trained to the point were magic can fill the roll of technology there isn't any downside to developing technology along side it, and it could possibly filling the rolls magic can't.
