Occasionally there are pieces of succubus art that tend to show a slightly violent aspect. Much of that comes from how succubi have been portrayed of course. There are very few works of this nature that I care for and this time on the Tale I’ll share one such image that leaves me… wondering.
This work is by an artist on DeviantArt called AngelaLara and you can find the original page with this art here and this artist’s page on DeviantArt can be found here.
There’s a certain level of… I’ll call it Dungeons and Dragons feel to this art. There’s a touch of the “evil monster” in this character, a tone of violence, but there is still a hint of her sexuality as well. Beyond this, I find myself wondering just what her story is. I’m unsure if she really is evil, or more seeking revenge in some way, and I would be happier with the latter than the former.
The detail in this work is fascinating to me, the textures in her skin, clothing, wings and hair. Her red eyes are a stark contrast to everything else and I can’t help but wonder if they being green or yellow might have been a better choice overall.
Quite a lot to think about in this art, and in doing so the thought of a story might be starting…
