Succubi Image of the Week 116

This is the second week of a series of artwork by a single artist that I am going to share from Deviantart. They have created a series of Succubi images using some of the most well known names in Succubi mythology…

The artist is known as Genzoman and this second image in the series is called Lilith…

Genzoman’s Deviantart site can be found here.

And you can find the original page with this work here on Deviantart as well.

The story of Lilith is well known I am sure. She is known as Adam’s first wife, the first of the Succubi, and many other roles that different legends, myths and religions have invested in her story. She is described, however most of all as being a Succubus and her fellow succubi are Agrat Bat Mahlat, Naamah, and Eisheth Zenunim, all of whom when looking at their myths, seem to reflect the different powers of Succubi…

This particular work of Genzoman’s strikes me as being very dramatic. Lilith is posed in mid-flight similarly to his work for Agrat Bat Mahlat, but instead of approaching, she seems to be turning away from you.

I think it’s interesting how her horns are moulded into a kind of mask that surrounds her face, that material also appearing on her clothing as well. I do wonder about her tail a bit, that seems like it’s more of a weapon to be used rather than an accessory to her overall looks.

Of the four images that Genzoman created in this series, this one is most likely my favorite for the simple reason that Lilith is shown as a powerful, sensual being that seems to be in control of her world…

Please do visit Genzoman’s Deviantart page to see all of the wonderful art he has created!

Next week… Na’amah.

    She seems to be a Lilith poised for battle, eh?
