Succubi Image of the Week 135

This week’s Succubi is the third of four images that all are by the artist Bruce Colero and, together, are my celebration of his work and a tease towards the release of his new book this summer called Naked Desire

Today’s Succubi is one of Bruce’s earliest images, and is actually the very first one that I discovered a long time ago when looking for images of Succubi…

And so, this is And Lead Us Into Temptation by Bruce Colero…

And lead us into Temptation by Bruce Colero

There is quite a lot I love about this image, one thing that I am unsure about, but I’ll get into that a bit later…

She’s really beautiful, her form and pose hints towards some of Bruce’s current works, especially in the way her pose and the fires burning around her act to give her a look that seems to say “If you want to see more it will cost you…”

Love her tail… Really more than I can explain… Well I can actually, just look at my manips and the header images in the Tale here and you can see it popping up from time to time… I think it’s the perfect shape for a Succubus…

The one thing that I have a problem with, and this is my particular bias coming into play, is her hair… You see, to me, a Succubi’s hair is dark in shades and an Angel’s hair is the lighter ones… That’s mostly because my own hair is raven and my Angel’s hair is blonde in colour…

I’m not saying that a darker shade would have been all that much better, but maybe it would have framed her face a bit better… It would have made the fires around her a bit more defined in certain places however…

Bruce’s art does show something that I had never really thought about before and that is the relationship of a Succubus to fire. She should, I would think, be able to control fire and flames to create the illusion of it clothing her form which, in the end, serves to add to her desirability to those that call for her, or summon her…

Bruce Colero’s work can be found at his website: http://www.colero.ca, or you can click the link to his site in my links on the right sidebar of the Tale…

His DevinatART site is at: http://colero.deviantart.com/

I want to thank Bruce once again for his kindness in allowing me to share his work with you all today…

Tomorrow I will be revealing a evilly delicious work from Bruce’s new book that I think is possibly at the pinnacle of his images of Succubi…

See you tomorrow!

Another Bimbo Succubus Costume…

One of the things that bothers a lot about Devil Girl, or in my case, Succubus costumes is the amount of them that seem to bring out the bimbo in people that wear them and leave the seduction behind somewhere…

This is one of those…

This costume is called Daring Devil… Honestly I can’t see the daring in it over the level of bimbo, but that’s what it’s called…

The costume in made of nylon and spandex materials, and it comes with a skirt, panties, the two colour top, a collar, a pair of armlets in black with red fringe and the set of horns the model is wearing in the picture… The red stockings don’t come with it, nor the shoes which aren’t shown anyway…

The entire outfit sells for $35 US on various sites on the web…

I just don’t like this. It’s not really screaming Succubus as much as yelling Bimbo really… I am sure that some women can make this work, but for me? It’s just not what I am looking for…

It’s getting a half pitchfork out of five… There just isn’t anything that I like in it nor something that I can work with to make it better save for the horns perhaps, those aren’t too bad really, but I have seen and own better ones than those…

There are better, lots better…

That I hope will be seen with next week’s costume…

Temptations 70

The Queen of the Succubi does have fears… Some of them are very real to her and she would do anything to make them go away… If she can…

_________________

Temptations 70

By TeraS and Legion & Alei

She had felt like she had grabbed hold of an emotional lightning bolt.  It shook her, filled her, consumed her.  She is not sure what is happening, her mind filled with images, thoughts, emotions… so different from what she had known.  It was as if someone was painting the world in totally new colors that she had never seen before.

She felt the stirrings of such love for the children, such passion… they were everything… of course they were.  What had she been thinking before?  She couldn’t remember… all she remembered was this feeling for her children… for her family.

Dimly she looked into Andrea’s eyes.  She was so beautiful… she could see how this woman had captured the Queen’s heart.  For one strong moment she wanted to pin Andrea down… have her way with her… the Queen didn’t matter… she was just so…

But the children… if she did that she could cause them harm… and she could never do that, but oh, how she longed to simply touch Andrea for a moment.

Maria rose in an almost blissful daze and said simply, “I have to go back to them.”

He had watched all this with great interest.  That the Queen’s consort could affect a Succubi so powerfully was indeed rare.  Maria looked like she had just finished with a night of very intense lovemaking and was too blissed out to even know what year she was in.

Absently he wondered if this woman could affect him, blocks or not.  It would be interesting to see her try.  But one thing at a time.

He shook his head in amusement, “Well done Andrea, it would seem that you have done a fine job on Maria.  She will now break every bone in her body for her children… and when her children are gone  she will break every bone in her body for you.”

He wondered if either the QUeen or her consort saw what he did.  They had gone on about having free will, the Queen had given Maria a choice, yet.. when she chose in a way they didn’t like they basically changed her so she would.  They had even had the nerve to go on about how no one could “fix” such a problem, but there was Andrea ‘fixing’ it with no trouble at all.

I guess it is all right just as long as THEY are the ones fixing and manipulating.  How interesting.

“Since I am the one who summoned Maria… I feel as if I am the one who should return her… If, of course, it is permitable to you my Queen.  But I don’t think in this state she should be away from the family too long.”

Tera didn’t say anything because she knew what Andrea had done and why… Legion’s words burned hot in her ears about Maria’s new attitude…

And still Tera said nothing…

She turned away from them all and just let whatever was going to be… Be. Opening the book to Maria’s page again, Tera looked upon her picture and the name below it… Turning the page over, she read the text of Maria’s life as it was and was becoming with something of a wistful smile… No one else in the room would be able to read the words written there in the language that the book only shared with the Queen…

She sighed a bit as a new line of text shimmered into existence on the page…

Thahnk is brath cala. Succubi Parmtal nee tass Lit. Un lfe nee brum teck qal aber na. Cee um albat teek wa a pass.

Tera closed the book and called to Maria, “Goodbye Maria… May you find what I couldn’t give…”

Then Tera walked out of the room and down a passageway leaving the others behind her for the moment…

Very good.  More and more this grows.

Takking the Queen’s comment as permission, Legion quietly waved his hand and Maria dissolved into mist back to where she had been plucked from.

Mind reading was not one of his abilities but he did wish it were.  The Queen had been mostly quiet, her wondered of her thoughts.  He had not come here to be seen as a monster, quite the opposite.  But the Queen’s consort had been… unanticipated and she had complicated things.  Now he was unsure if the Queen would simply oust him from her realm or if she would be willing to talk.

Despite everything he had told them was true, despite the fact he had followed their every request, and despite the fact he had broken a pac with someone (which would make future plans far more difficult for the intern) he was sure the Queen still viewed him sharply into the negative.

Gazing at both the Queen and her consort he said simply, “I apologize for causing such turmoil my Queen.  Though in the end my goal was simply to give Maria what she wished for.”

I smile a Legion for a moment.  “I believe you Legion.  But you do gain something in return for your gifts and perhaps you have never heard of the human expression, ‘buyer beware’.  In the end, you seem to be a salesman, offering something that is too good to be true.  Your hearts desires at no real costs to the buyer.  That and the fact that you won’t simply come out and say what it is you wish to buy and what you want to offer in return.”

“For me,” I continue, “It’s a matter of walking into this room and finding you attempting to tempt my fiancee … and as you might have noticed, I’m very protective of her.  She’s my life.  There’s a number of powers that might want to wish her harm … I’ve seen some of them and I’ll be honest with you, they frighten me.  Not for me … but for her.  I … would take it badly if … someone came here and found a way to take her away from me.  What I showed Maria is nothing less than I what I have for Terra.  I did not change her, I just gave her a way to understand what she needed to know.”

“You meant Maria no harm … nor do I think you mean harm to Tera … but I’ve learned … things are not always as they seem.  When you have something so very precious … you don’t risk it … you protect it.”

I concentrate and feel the part of Tera that is within me.  Love are you alright?  Did I do something wrong?

Storm Clouds 82

Chapter 14

By TeraS

After Camilla left, Tom spent the next thirty minutes grilling Bill over what he had done, what he was doing, and whether anyone in his company might have taken it upon themselves to attack Brent and his wife. He came to the decision that, while Bill wasn’t directly involved in what happened, Tom could not dismiss the possibility that someone who worked for Bill had done the deed … or that Bill was hiding something from him.

That bothered him.

It wasn’t that he didn’t believe what Bill had said; it was the sheer stupidity of Bill blowing up and going off on a tirade over the injustice that he perceived was done to him.

Tom didn’t enjoy pushing his old friend that way. Worse was trying to break all of his explanations and reasons why he wasn’t responsible for what had happened. Most of the reasons made sense—most of them—but one exchange just about pushed Bill over the edge, and that worried him.

Tom sighed and paced in front of the offices again.  He was sure that the workers inside were looking at him oddly, but he didn’t care: Bill was not quite cleared; that one piece of evidence would damn him in court if it came to that.

Tom hoped that it wouldn’t.

It wasn’t much evidence. But it was enough that fingers could be pointed, witnesses found, and, in the end, Bill could be sent to jail for a long time. But when you are seen threatening someone with death, and promising to harm his family … that is too much to ignore.

Bill had explained that he was madder than hell. That something had snapped inside of him when Brent was nearby. “Something ’bout that guy rubs me the wrong way. He’s just so damn smug, knows all of the secrets, stuff that you don’t want out. I dunno how he does it, but he knows where to be and what to look for. Damn frustratin’. He’d be a great spy. Wonder if he is one.”

Tom continued to pace around for a while. He didn’t know where Camilla had gone; he assumed she would return to the office when she was done talking to Billy. He assumed that she would, at least. She seemed like a responsible woman, if a bit irritating. It hit him, then, why Bill would be driven crazy by Brent.

Tom wondered if that was part of those people’s nature.

Camilla came into view soon after, her heels clicking on the concrete floor of the warehouse. Tom noticed that Billy wasn’t there, and wasn’t too pleased about that. He had been intending to grill Billy next, thanks to his father’s admission, but would now have to hunt him down and corner him. Filing away the thoughts on his old friend, he called out to Camilla, “Where’s Billy? Have to talk to him.”

“No, you don’t. He’s not to blame for this: he nor his father.”

Tom rubbed his chin a moment, then said, “You got a feeling or something?”

She looked around, then nodded and explained, “Let’s just say that my … ‘feelings’ … are pretty accurate.”

Turning away, he replied, “You’ll have to explain that to me sometime. Soon would be great. You know, before I have to toss them both in jail.”

Camilla looked at him curiously, then followed behind. Tom seemed to be in a rush to get out of the warehouse, and she found herself running a bit to keep up with him. Then she asked, “Do you have something to charge them with?”

“Enough to charge Bill: making threats. He was foolish in front of a lot of people. That’s a big no-no in things like this.”

“Passions of the heart can make us all say silly things we don’t mean at the moment they are said.”

“Passions can and have killed in the past, you know.”

Camilla had finally caught up to him, and, as she walked beside, started to lecture Tom a bit, “Those are not passions. Those are misguided beliefs and desires that pull one away from what is important, pull one inward, toward oneself. It is easy to fall to darker desires and temptations than it is to hold onto the more important things within.”

“You know, I don’t understand all of that stuff. I’m just a simple man. I haven’t got the time to deal with theories and wishes. I deal with facts. Give me some of those and I’ll be able to deal with ‘em.”

“All right, then.  Fact: Bill said that he would never harm a lady. Fact: you agree that he would not either. Therefore, he cannot be the one to have done the deed nor order it done.”

“Okay; see, that’s not a fact.  That is conjecture.”

“Is it? I don’t think so. I have …”

“A feeling? You said that before. What does that mean?”

The pair exited the warehouse, but Camilla did not speak until she was quite sure that no one could hear her.

“I … We … know people by their souls, Thomas. When I touched your hand, I knew that you were a good man. I also knew that you have a troubled past and that you have lost someone close to you.”

Tom’s look was a mix of shock and concern, but, before he could say anything, she continued:  “I did not look deeply into you. I did not look into your memories; I could have, but, because I respect you, and you did not give me permission, I did not. All I knew was that you cared about what happened to Patricia, for whatever reason you had, and so …”

“And so that was your lure to get me involved in this …”

“You did not have to.”

He stopped walking: “You know, I feel like I was pushed into this. That you and Tera conspired to get me involved and make me stay in it.”

“No. I did not. I gave you the card. I gave you the chance to walk away.  You decided that you needed to find out more and you came into our world. Do not confuse the sight of an open door with walking through it. You had the choice. You made it.”

Tom wanted to rant at her, but her logic was sound. He did poke his nose in, and he was deep in it now. With a sigh, he asked, “How much do you know about Bill and his son?”

“Enough to know that Bill has not killed anyone, ever. I can say the same for Billy, as well.”

“Okay, explain that … in simple words so that my mind doesn’t break.”

Camilla laced her hands together and explained, “If you are dark, or have been touched by the dark, if you have killed or done something that serves the dark and makes it gain power, you are marked, in your soul, with that. If I touch someone like that, I’ll know. The same is true of someone who has been touched by the light, but it is different.”

“Weird. Sort of sounds like you are a divining rod.”

She giggled a bit: “Divine I am not. Or at least I do not appear to be.”

Tom couldn’t help the smile, “Right. I forgot about that.’

“What most people, generally, are shades of grey. That’s normal, and what we expect. But there are always exceptions to that rule. If either of them had killed, they would not be grey; they would be dark. I don’t sense that in either of them.”

“So, you give them a pass?”

“I give them more than a pass: there is nothing in them that even hints they are involved. But …”

“But what?”

“I asked Billy for a favor.”

That stopped Tom in his tracks. Pinching the bridge of his nose, he asked, “What kind of favor?”

“I can’t say.”

“Oh come on. He’s a suspect in spite of your feelings about him.  You can’t just go and trust someone because …”

“I can and I did. In the end I gave him some comfort and, in response to that, he agreed to do something for me. He will. He’s as honourable as his father.”

“Did you tell him anything more than what Bill knows?”

“No. We did talk about his mother a while. He misses her. He does not want to lose his father as well.”

Tom stared off into space for a time before ending the conversation with, “We don’t have the evidence to clear Bill. Right now, he’s the only suspect we’ve got.”

“Then we should find more.”

Tom smiled again, “Right. Look Camilla, I know that you … work … differently then we do. I get that. But you have to see that we have rules and laws here and I have to enforce them. That means that without a piece of paper, a videotape, a confession … hell, anything at all that points me away from Bill, I’m going to arrest him real soon.”

“You will be wrong then.”

“I’ll have to live with that.”

“You will not be able to. I can see that.”

“I know. But that’s part of the job. Sometimes, I think that I sold my soul for the job.”

With that confession, Tom whistled for a cab. It didn’t take long for one to pull up to the curb. He opened the door and let her go in first. As she did so, Camilla told him, with a serious tone in her voice, “You cannot sell that which is held by another Thomas.”

He climbed into the cab, gave their destination and, as they drove away, Tom’s memories came back to haunt him again … as they always did.

A T-shirt for a Succubus…

It’s been a while since I found a T-shirt that I really just had to but that has something to do with Succubi…

At last, someone has made one that is on my want list and then some…

I admit that when I saw this, I just laughed out loud… It’s really a perfect idea in so many ways! The saying alone is good enough for me, but with the drawing of a Succubus with it, it’s so much better…

You can find this on sale at Zazzle.com here.

Lorilei the dancing Succubi?

Sometimes I discover a YouTube video that I can’t help but smile at…

Lorilei the dancing Succubi is one of those…

And in case the embedding doesn’t work:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1M2yEFCGgQ

This video shows the IMVU avatar of a person on YouTube named TheLittlePirate. While I know little about IMVU or this person, I do have to say that I like their idea of what a Succubus should look like a bunch…

Here’s a still image of Lorilei as well:

While the wings don’t do a lot for me, yes I still have this thing about wings… Probably always will, the rest I rather like…

Her tail is quite expressive in the video and that makes me smile, but as well, the outfit she wears is very sexy and looks really good in this render…

No horns, bit disappointed in that, but you can’t have everything obviously…

The long boots are a nice touch as well, no hooves which make her look a lot better I think…

I’ve done a little research on IMVU and there seems to be quite a number of Succubus, or Devil Girl, modifications you can purchase for your avatar. Some are really tacky, but there are some, like this one, that look really nice and make me ponder all sorts of interesting stories…

We’ll see how that goes…

Bruce Colero’s Succubi and his Upcoming New Book…

I’d like to tell you a little story today on the Tale about an artist that I think you should get to know a little better than you probably have or do… His name is Bruce Colero and he is, quite simply, one of my artist heroes when it comes to creating art of Succubi… Bruce, for those that do not know, is a Canadian artist, but is also quite well known in the world of fitness through his various companies and products…

The best part of that is the time he is able to place into, what I happen to think is wonderful beyond words, his art and passions within them…

Bruce has released several books in the past, the first of these being the collection called Heavenly Bodies in 2007.

It was a joint work with Sal Quartuccio and is available in hardcover and softcover versions. This image to the left is of the softocver version of the book which I prefer to the hardcover.

That’s mostly because the hardcover is a series of smaller images. The issue I have with that is, that seems to reduce the sheer beauty of his works and doesn’t really show what awaits you inside when you go past the cover of it…

This is a 48 page collection of Bruce’s early works and shows off themes from science fiction to fantasy to everything in-between.  Next week’s Succubi of the Week will be the first piece of art of Bruce’s that I saw called And Lead us into… Of course it is a Succubus in all of her glory surrounded in flames and power…

Come back next Thursday to see her in all of her Succubi glory…

The second, in 2008, was called Skin Deep, again in conjunction with Sal Quartuccio. This edition was again 48 pages in length revealing the ways that Bruce had changed and, more accurately, transformed his work to a higher level of detail and passions…

It was more of a pinup book rather than the fantasy work of the first book in that there were more images with white backgrounds in them, like the cover to the right here, than there was in the first book.

When you compare the second book to the first, you can see how Bruce progressed from what seemed to be simple works of beautiful women in extraordinary situations, which they were not by any means, to beings of wonder in form, action and desires…

The textures of their skin… The visual feel of their clothing… It all comes together to show not just how far Bruce came in that short time, but it gives a peek into what are, when you think about it, the fantasies and desires of many when we look at a beautiful woman…

It’s hard to pick just one image from this book, but there is a Succubus or two as well as some Angels that are sol very delicious in-between the covers…

Now, Bruce was kind enough to give me a few preview images from his new book that is coming out this summer, and so, here first of all is the cover of his new book, to the left, which is titled Naked Desire

This is of course his third book, and it is, to me, the one in which his talents are stretched to their extreme… The shading, form, look of the women are absolutely perfect in all ways… I don’t mean simply physically, but emotionally… If you look at their eyes, the shape of their smile, frown, or moan of ecstasy, you can see the little details that some artists miss… It’s a touch of a shadow here, a slight shimmer of light against their skin, the patterning of beads of sweat on their skin… It all comes together to give power to the image…

It becomes less of a painting… a piece of art… and more of a window into a reality that you think you might be able to touch not just see with your eyes…

I have two pieces of art from Bruce’s new book to share, but I am going to be a bit of a tease and share one of them today, saving the more delicious one for next Friday just cause…

But I am sure that you have read enough of my thoughts of Bruce’s works of the past and want to see something of what he is planning to release into the world so very soon…

And so…

This first piece of art, from Bruce’s newest collection, Naked Desire, is called Dark Arts:

Now, to me, this is an image of a traditional Succubus moments after seducing and, for lack of a better word, rewarding a mage for summoning her to his world… She’s just finished removing the one that could send her away and is looking over her shoulder, towards the next being she will entwine with her powers to do her bidding as her servant forevermore…

I love the pose and the situation that Bruce has created here. You can just make out the summoning circle, and the books of knowledge with their secrets within. The candles are just right in colour and texture, the floor has little marks and scratches in it showing that it’s not a pristinely rendered place. It has a life of it’s own that is important and relevant to the Succubus in the work…

There is an interesting effect in her eyes, they just glow in the dark which is a really nice touch to show her power, but not make it the focus of the work too… I am however a little bit on the fence about her tail however… I guess I am somewhat biased to liking the previous red tail that Bruce has used for his Devil Girls and Succubi… I just think that sort of tail matches Succubi better… That’s not to say it’s not a bad tail or anything like that, just different and I suppose I need to get used to that idea some….

Bruce posted this image originally on his DeviantART site, and you can find that page here: http://colero.deviantart.com/art/Dark-Arts-160877521

I know that you all would love to see the other work, but that, and one other piece of art from Bruce’s portfolio will be appearing next Thursday and Friday on the Tale…

Think of this week’s posts just setting the table for two pieces of art…

One that has always been a favourite of mine… The other… Oh that’s just too delicious for words… I think Bruce really has outdone himself with this one…

Be sure to see next week’s Succubi of the Week and next Friday’s unveiling of Succubi sexiness that is appearing in his new book as well as a peek at the back cover…

It’s well worth the wait I promise…

But while you do… Don’t forget to visit Bruce’s website at: colero.ca
