Supremacy by acfierro Supremacy by acfierro
Some people can accept than they are lame...

An idea i got after a girl (not exactly a friend, but neither a nobody to me) just ask me about how a war between this two factions would result. She likes all that shit of magic world and stuff, so before anything i just said her; "well, science win... just because magic doesn´t exist"

I use (or trying to use) the same style than [link] "Phobs", I´m not a fan of him, however his style is awesome, after all he´s a traditional draftman (I mean, most of the people than predicates the advantages of traditional drawing over the digital is for having an excuse to never admit than they suck on digital media (including me)... but "phobs" is not the case)...

Just a way to start the weekend

You've brighten my day with this page, I've forget how effective nukes are in dealing with arrogant noobs. But the whole magic thing is nothing more that just a deception of the mind. (magic is something unexpected and inexplicably thing that happens but truth be told is just ignorance. Take for instance myth of Atlantis the lost city who where started when pompeii were buryed under the ash by volcano vesuvius) i believe that "the magic" is just technology or knowledge who is too complex to be understanded by the common folk of its time. The science begin to tear down all magical pretenders beating them into their own game with reason and logic. i don't know why but this page remind me for one song: Dropped from Enola, A city eraced. Retribution is made.

Thanks...

But "Science" should not be reduced to natural sciences, social sciences for example, have another kind of approach about the "magical thought"considering more complex than just a "deception". For a social study one most consider than societies use representations of values and concepts not just to explain their surroundings and/or physical phenomenons but also, to justify historical social structures... 

So; magic is false, well yes, but the core is what is magic representing. And the same process occurs in modern societies; things as tolerance, justice, honor are mythical values than are more related to abstractions (and even "deceptions") of the mind than natural and observable things....

The picture I made is not an"insult" for old magical conceptions in the so-called non-modern societies, au contraire; it was made to mock about the modern depictions of magic in modern societies; it was made more against "harry potter" than against the ancient myths of the King Arthur....

Sorry you're correct. i just enjoyed too much on this awesome work that i've just meant that ancient people have some fear from things that today have explanation (like how lightning is generated that countless mythical creatures and gods were created) and of course there was people who used the knowledge for self gain.

Esto me recuerda a Harry Potter y el plot hole tan enorme que encontre en su trama. El plan del malo era acabar con todo rasgo humano inherente en el mundo mágico, ok, per y ¿después? ¿Planeaba enfrentarse a los humanos, cuando países como dear USA podrían mandarlos a saludar a sus madres con una linda arma nuclear/biológica?

El elemento de la mágia puede ser entretenido si se lo usa correctamente y no sólo para insertar a un protagonista boludo que por haceres de la misma magia encuentre resultos sus problemas sin el mínimo esfuerzo.

actually magic does exist, it's just so common in our lives we don't notice it when we see it. And that is the point of fantasy.

and in a no-weapons brawl a fantasy charater is more likely to win having a better knowledge of hand to had combat and the muscles needed for medieval weaponry. Or magic.

THANKS TO SCIENCE!

Oh and I think I somewhat independently had similar idea to this, with Fiona (elves) invading a Fantasy Earth from a Fantasy Mars (via portals). They have magic, but the people of Earth have cannons, and muskets, and millions of soldiers.
I've uploaded their distant past, what do you thing?

I think it sound interesting, primary the levels of casualties in the invasion and the change of power suffered in the expulsion.
Besides, the science would have the advantadge of evolution, science advance, meanwhile magic (even in a "phylosophical" way) would be limited to the old and already overcame "knowledge".
