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

Succubi Image of the Week 134

This week’s Succubi is the first part of four images that are related to the same artist that I would like to share with you all this week, and, because there is so much Succubi yumminess to share, there will be more next Thursday for the Succubi of the Week!

Last week I received a pair of lovely comments and some emails from the artist Bruce Colero. With his permission this week, I am going to share one image today from one of his books, and tomorrow I will be sharing an image from his next book and share some wonderful information about it…

This week’s Succubi of the Week Image is one of Bruce’s earlier works called Penance.

Penance by Bruce Colero - http://www.colero.ca

Penance by Bruce Colero - http://www.colero.ca

Clicking on the image here will of course take you to a larger version of it elsewhere on the Tale…

There is so much I want to say about this work by Bruce… There is a lot that I want to say about his methods first of all. Some might think that this is simply Photoshopping an image. It isn’t. Bruce does start from photographs, but he creates his own 3D models from them and then transforms them further in Photoshop.

Just one example of that is the hair of the models… He paints them by hand on a tablet into Photoshop. You can’t imagine the length of time that takes… I have only the vaguest idea from my manips, which take me forever and they aren’t one-tenth as complicated or involved as Bruce’s are…

I love the expression on the Succubus and the girl that is trying to please her in this work… It looks, at least to me, as if the blonde had summoned the Succubus, lost control of her, and now is trying to please the Succubus…

And she is trying so very hard at that isn’t she?

I can almost see the next image, if there was one, of the Succubus having her new plaything  on her hands and knees lapping away trying to bring her Mistress to orgasm…

And now, as seems to be what always happens when I look at Bruce’s works, I have all sorts of evil story ideas running through my mind…

Not that is a bad thing…

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

He also has a DevinatART site that you can see 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…

Please come back tomorrow to see what delicious evil Bruce is planning to release soon… And next week for what is, for me, one of the most beautiful Succubi images I have seen…

Finally a cute Succubus Costume…

It’s been a while since I have found a Succubus costume that I actually like. I think it’s been at least a few months if not longer…

This one gets the cute award…

Now I know that there are few costumes that I have liked in the past, mostly for various reasons that come down to the “ugh that looks crappy” factor…

This one, oh this one is very nice I think and it has all sorts of possibilities…

It is a three piece costume which consists of a stretch striped tube dress with built-in petticoat and bow, the devil horns headband and the pitch fork. It’s not made of vinyl, which to me is a plus, and it’s not something flimsy that will fall apart with one night’s wearing which I think is a very good thing…

The shoes are separate items you can buy. Buit on the site I found this they had some interesting ideas for shoes that I’ll talk about in a little bit as well…

I like the overall cute that this costume brings more than anything else. It’s not trashy or over the top in my eyes…

Moreover, it’s a costume that you can wear to a public party or something a lot more private and still have your Siuccubiness come out to play…

This costume sells for $50 US which seems to be a reasonable price for this outfit. And it really does interest me. But the one thing that bugs me a bit are the shoes the model is wearing in the picture…

That can be fixed however easily enough thanks to several really nice shoe designs that are available…

They give these five choices for possible shoes for this costume… The flame covered boots don’t do a lot for me. Nor the other flamed shoes. The red trimmed shoe again just doesn’t do it for me either…

But the red Mary Janes? Oh yes, that would work really well with this costume.. They are my first and only choice for this costume and, they are only $25 US for the pair of them. That’s quite a reasonable price and they do look so smashingly good that I’d have to buy them…

With the red Mary Janes, this costume gets four pitchforks out of five. Lots of cute and sexy all mixed into one really nice costume…

More next time!

Temptations 69

Some choice are. Some can be harder and mean more than you can know. The Succubi Queen knows this and hopes that we will all learn…

_________________

Temptations 69

By TeraS and Legion & Alei

I turn to Maria.

“Will you let me help you Maria? Maybe together we can find your path.”  I say as I extend my hand.
Maria was deeply suspicious.  This had been her folly and she wasn’t about to make the same mistake again, especially with the consort of the Queen who was a mortal no less.  She had done enough harm all around and wasn’t about to compound it.

Eyeing Andrea with deep suspision she muttered, “That depends… on what you plan to do.  If it involves harming you, the Queen, or the bond you two share I would rather be dead than cause more harm due to my folly, or at the very least have faith in Legion to deal with it.”

“I’m not sure wither to take that as a compliment or not,” Legion muttered.

“I do not know you Andrea and while you must be extraordinary to win the heart of the Queen, it is because of that I am not willing to allow you to sacrifice yourself or what you have gained with our Queen to fix the damage I have caused.  You have said that Legion is a being that knows no right or wrong, but he is willing to help me undo my mistake… and whatever price he demands will be from me and me alone, as it should be.  Part of what has caused this is my abandoning my responsabilities, and I will not make that mistake again.”

I look over at my beloved and smile before turning back to Maria.

“You are not human and neither is Legion. so perhaps this is a mystery to you both.  But I am.  Legion can not ‘fix’ this.  The only being in this universe who can is you.”  I say in a soft voice.

“These children have already lost a mother and that is not something that is easy for a human child to recover from.  But they have found one again, learned to love and accept her as their own.  That is not an easy thing to do.  Whatever else I or Legion or Tera may try to do, it can not be more than a poor reflection of what it truly needed.  And that Maria is you.  Whatever it is that you are, that is what your children have accepted into their hearts and souls.  Whether you understand this or not, only you can do what needs to be done.  If you will allow me, I can help you find what you need.”

“If not,”  I say with a sigh, “Then I believe that Tera will make that choice for you.  I think she was preparing to rip your page from the book of the Succubi.  I’m not sure, but I think that would make you into a mortal woman and you would be lost to us forever.”

“Will you let me help you.”  I say holding out my hand.

Maria looked at the woman and at the Queen.  She had been correct in what she had said about the Queen, she would have ripped her from the book.  It seemed the choice was taken from her no matter what she did.  Fate, the Queen, and her own folly had brought her to a place where she had no choice at all.

She looked at Andrea and her eyes were very serious, “If you can swear to me on your love for the Queen that your help will not cost you your love for the Queen and that you both will be together, then yes, I will accept your help.  If not…”

She looked at the Queen deeply in the eyes, “If not… even though it is not my choice… rip my name from the book and burn it forevermore.”

“No Maria, if I am right, this will cause no harm to any, not me, not Terra, not you.”

I gently take her hand and look her in the eye.   I did not wish for Legion to see this, but there is more at stake here than just one deal making being.

“Now Maria, I want you to think about your children, think about your husband, feel for them the love you have for them in your heart.” I say softly …

I look at her, and smile.

I see her eyes widen as she feels it and I pour my love into her … not the shades of an immortal life, but the love of one who’s each moment is precious and valued … .  My smile radiates like a newborn sun as my passion flows from me like a great river finding her love for her children and family … and then stoking it, increasing it, pouring myself into it … sending my own ache at losing my family to her, while driving into her my most desperate desires … a mothers love for her children … a love that will let nothing stand between them and her … ever … a love that will risk everything, anything, a love that demands that it be served.  I share with her my passion, letting it flow within her to every part of her … burning and soothing.

It is not the love of a succubus … it is the love and fierce passion of a human mother who lives for and loves her children and family above all other things … a mother which will let nothing stand between her, and those that need her.

I feel her resist me for a moment … but even the angels of heaven can not do so if I pour my soul into what I am … as I am doing now.

There is nothing more important I whisper into her soul. Nothing.

I feel her tremble … her eyes open wide and I see it … the shock, as if a veil lifted from her eyes … I see the passion burning within her as she looks out upon a new world she never dared dream existed.

I see more as well … I can not spend myself in this way without leaving something of me behind … she will love me as well, for the rest of eternity … but she will love her children even more.

Gently I caress her cheek and feel her smooth skin press against it … and I smile.   A smile of friendship and compassion flowing out of me to her.

“Now you understand Maria … but you are not alone.  If you are ever in doubt or need our aide, call.  I don’t know how things work in the world of succubi, but I do know what it means to be a friend.  You will not be alone in this … ever.”

Not being alone. That’s what really matters. It odes as we will see…

Storm Clouds

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, he 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 going off his rocker 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, would send Bill to jail for a long time. But when you are seen threatening someone with death, and promising to harm their family…. that was too much to be ignored.

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. 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.”

He 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 women, if a bit irritating. It hit him then, why Bill would be driven crazy by Brent.

Tom wondered if that was part of their 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 he wasn’t too pleased about that. He had been intending to grill Billy next, thanks to his father’s admission, but was now preparing to go 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 him: 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 from what is important 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 in 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, so 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.”

And with her right hand she pointed at her forehead.

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

“What most people are, generally, are shades of grey. That’s normal, and what we expect from most. 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 screams 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 favour?”

“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 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 him. 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…
