Annika loses herself to her violent split-personality, Bloody Anne.

This is the final chapter to the Blood Charm series. Thanks to everyone who supported me along the way.

EDIT: Ah, another front page! Newgrounds is awesome. Seriously. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

If only there was more!

I've been following the Blood Charm series ever since its first appearance on the portal front page. It has been a real pleasure to see the evolution of a character through still images. And that alone, I'm sure you'll agree, is what this art has been all about. A telling of a story, without telling it. (Maybe you did, but I didn't read it)

What inspires me the most about your artwork is the attention to detail you put in things that most people overlook - the chips in the sword, the cuts in the armour, the departure from total symmetry (right leg thigh plate in this particular instance), and your brilliant choice of colours.

I will nitpick at two things - one is that her mouth looks a little lopsided to me. It's like if she closes it, her lips won't meet in the middle. It looks that way to me, I don't know - maybe it's the way she's sneering. Two is the rocks beneath her feet contrast too much from the strong detail in her armour pieces. It's like fine lines in the top and once it reaches the bottom, it becomes more of a blurry art style. Not saying that's wrong or anything, but certainly feels a little strange to be looking at it like that. They look more like they blend with the army in the background, but then she's standing on them.

I'm rambling. I'm picking microscopic blemishes in what must be a masterpiece.

Put the pictures side by side - I try lining all of Annika up in separate browsers - and they reveal a brilliant canvas.

Bravo.

Ah, if only it were that simple! You'd get better a lot faster just by practicing every day.
