Succubi Image of the Week 509

Among the things I look at in Succubi art is the hair of the characters. A succubus can have the most perfect body shape, an amazing ensemble, but if their hair looks lousy, then really they aren’t trying. This time on the Tale an artwork with an anime flair, amazing hair, and a smile that is wonderfully sexy.

This work is called Saa-chan Succubus and is by an artist on Pixiv called Tanuki V. You can find the original page on Pixiv where I found this work here.

Purple succubi are really a very rare thing in Succubi art, and finding this work was a delightful surprise. I adore this character for so many reasons, she looks right, her outfit just works so dearly well with her horns, wings and tail. Amazing hair, the style again is just right for her, and frames her expression and little salute perfectly.

There’s such a presence in her pose, the look in her eyes, that little bit of fangs that appear from her smile. I’d love to see her in a comic book or something similar, that would be neat. Her outfit is something that puts a story to my thoughts, I’ll have to work on that sometime.

Sexy can be cute, but it’s more so when that sexy is just part of the succubus herself and not something that’s tacked on, as this artist created here.

At least the costume name is accurate…

Red Black Sexy Devil CostumeAnother example today on the Tale of a costume that, at first glance, offers something, but the details take much of that away. Far too often costumes appear that attempt to be sexy, but aren’t. More often costumes appear that aren’t exactly what you get in the package. Perhaps more clarity would be a good place to start?

This is called the Red Black Sexy Devil Costume and it comes with the red off the shoulder crop top, the black miniskirt and the uninspiring horns. The gloves are included and there is also a red belt, which isn’t shown. The fishers, choker and heels are not included. It usually sells for $45 US, but it does appear on special for as little as $24 US from time to time.

It’s… not all that much really to look at, overall there’s the barest connection to being “devilish”, it isn’t at all “succubish” however.

I hesitate to call it trashy, but it really sits on the edge of being so in a lot of ways. It looks a bit cheap, there’s almost a “lady of the night” feel to it and that bothers me really.

The skirt does nothing for me, the top as well. The horns are nothing special. As the fishnets and shoes aren’t part of this, it’s a bit of a shame that they are seen as part of the overall look.

Again, it’s that trashy look that bothers me here. Nothing really appeals to me I wouldn’t consider it either.

There are better things out there, believe it or not. The problem is finding them… and quickly.

One pitchfork out of five.

I’m being kind I know and I think really the only reason I’m giving this a single pitchfork is that the model is trying her best to make this look good.

A lovely Morrigan Aensland Speedart YouTube

I’ll be sharing a number of Morrigan Aensland themed YouTubes the next few weeks. Everything from speedpainting to speed artwork through tribute videos and quite a few intersting cosplay videos as well. This week’s video is an artist drawing Morrigan and in a deliciously wonderful way…


If you cannot see this video here on the Tale, please try this link.

In the event the video is removed from YouTube, here is a screenshot of the completed artwork, which just makes me smile…

While I don’t normally like art of Morrigan when her curves are really exaggerated, I do like this piece of art because her pose makes thrusting out her cleavage make some sense. But, really it is her eyes, that wonderful smile that I just adore the most here.

Lovely art, really one of my favourite Morrigan artworks of this month…

Succubi Image of the Week 508

I’ve always liked art in which the ensemble the succubus wears isn’t drab, or something that just takes away from what otherwise can be a delightfully sexy and cute character. Many times, that comes to the little accents added that turn what might have been something ordinary into something that’s just captivating…

This is just really sexy and cute, but as well, there’s a little hint of danger which I think is interesting. It looks as if she’s holding a dagger, or something similar, in her hand made of light, and that’s a unique thing. I wonder if, as she has so many cut-outs shaped like hearts, the heart shaped accents and so on, if that might possibly be a kind of aspect of her powers as a succubus. I like that idea actually, and her expression, the brightness of her, I think reflects upon that thought.

Love her hair, the mix of colours works well, her horns look right as well, though it’s a shame she doesn’t have a tail. Still, her ensemble is perfect for her, not too over the top, but sexy in its own way. She is, perhaps, a good idea of a succubus that’s dangerously cute…

This costume has horns, but they aren’t much…

Red Horns Devil Cosplay CostumeSometimes it is the model that sells the costume more than the costume itself. They have a look, a style that’s quite attractive even if what they are wearing isn’t at all. This costume is an example of that and that’s a shame. Because of the horns and the tail, but most of all because of that horrid pitchfork.

This is called the Red Horns Devil Cosplay Costume and it comes with the zippered bodysuit to which the tail is attached, the hood, which has the horns attached to it, and that horrid pitchfork that I detest. It sells for between $30-40 US.

Really the model sells this, without her look and expression there’s not much here to draw one’s attention. It’s just not that appealing to me overall, the horns aren’t that good, that pitchfork is cringe-worthy and really the black tipped tail looks rather cheap all things considered.

Two pitchforks out of five.

Meh is probably the best description I think.

A neat Succubus speedpainting YouTube

Another cute speedpainting YouTube of a Succubus that I found on the Tale today. I do like seeing Succubi smiling, it’s a lovely thing to see. This work has a lovely smile, some interesting contrasts and a little bit of mystery that I do think works quite well together…

As always, in case the video vanishes, here is a screenshot of the completed artwork as well:

She’s adorably cute, I love the purple and the background is quite alive with mystery about her which I do love quite a lot. It would have been nice to see her eyes, it’s a shame they are in shadow, but overall a lovely work of Succubus art…

Succubi Image of the Week 507

For this week’s succubus, a bit of 3D art that’s a little different, but I think it’s interesting in her look and the setting. Perhaps it’s a bit dark, a little too much in shadow, but that’s part of the overall look isn’t it? In spite of this, the title of the work, and the work itself, just makes me smile and wonder…

This work is called Seductubus and is by an artist on DeviantArt called inkedillusions. You can find the original page on DeviantArt with this work here and this artist’s page can be found here as well.

I’m quite pleased that her tail has centre stage here, sometimes the tails in renders don’t quite look right, but I think this one does work for her. That said, her outfit is really very interesting and it almost seems like she’s wearing a bodysuit underneath her robe, which is a different choice. The diamond shapes are something unique, overall.

Her eyes are quite piercing, her smile is, in a way, amused, which I like as well. Her horns I wish has been a similar colour to her tail, but still look quite nice. Lovely hair texture as well, and hair is a very difficult thing to get right after all.

The overall setting seems a little dark to me, partly I think because it seems like she’s “corrupted” the place and so things aren’t exactly bright as a result. Still, I’d have liked the succubus to be brighter, to see more of the detail of her form. It does make for a story to wonder about however…
