Succubi Image of the Week 131

Some Succubi don’t have horns or tails, but you know that they are Succubi when you see them… This Week’s Succubi is a case in point…

The work is called Succubus is and the creation of the artist known as aditya777 on Deviantart. You can find this image on their site here, and their site on Deviantart here.

There really is quite a lot to love about this image. This first thing that I find rather unique is the soft glow about her eyes. This is something that you don’t see all that often in images of Succubi. Now, for the most part that is usually a greenish tinge of colour, but in this case, the artist made them a reddish glow to reflect her demonic background I would assume…

What does get my attention is the shading and skin tone of her body. It’s really well done and almost looks like it is real in some places which I think is a testament to the artist’s abilities in their work…

I also like her hair texture and shaping, the shading and little details in it catch your eyes and draw you towards her eyes, just an excellent use of composition and pose…

Her outfit is really interesting, The strapping around her back and the way it is draped over her form is quite delicious and wonderful as well. I’ve always had problems with wings, these are quite nice and don’t overwhelm the work I think…

She doesn’t have horns or a tail, which to me is a shame, I think they would have fit really well with her looks and pose, but they aren’t there and so I’ll just have to imagine what they might have looked like…

The other part of the work that I ponder over is what she is holding in her outstretched hand. I assume that it is a knife or sword of some description from the red streaks flying out from behind it, which I have to guess to be blood from the look of it. I’m not really sure why a Succubus would have such a thing as they don’t really fight others, they do after all seduce and manipulate them more than anything else really…

Please do visit their site on Deviantart, there is lots of fantasy works there of many different themes that I think readers of the Tale will enjoy!
