A YouTube Speedpainting of Melaedriel by Kumensia

Time for another speedpainting YouTube of an artist creating a Succubus piece of art… What’s interesting to me is that this artist has, in fact, created several pieces of art about this Succuhus, whom they have named Melaedriel… And I think she is really quite interesting as a Succubus…

And if you cannot see this video on the Tale:

And, lastly, a still of the final work by the artist Kumensia, also known as Jewel Evans, who calls this work, Melaedriel: True Form…

This artist has a page on DeviantArt, which you can find here, the page with this art in a larger size can be found here as well. There are other works of Melaedriel as well, some of which can be found here, and here, and here… All of which are really quite interesting reflections on the character herself I think…

The artist describes Melaedriel as being part infernal and part elven in nature, which I think is a good fit for her looks and personality, at least those that can be seen in the art of her. I do wonder a bit about her tail colour, I’m not sure it is silver or grey to be honest. Either would work well for her I think regardless of that.

She seems to have a bit of a wild side to her in her true form, certainly dangerous at the least, and possibly, slightly, erotic in her own way. All of that contributes to a character that in all of the forms she has been draw or otherwise appeared in, is more than she is on the surface…

I think that she will be another example of an idea that someday might become a story from me… I hope I can do her justice somehow…

    It is interesting, and maybe a little sad, that this angry version of Melaedriel is meant to be her “True Form.” I would have hoped (and maybe I am just a male chauvenist, maybe she is just empowered here) that the artist would see that there is so much more to this character than the anger.

    I think, in a lot of ways, sometimes all we have is our anger… Regrettably…
