Succubi Image of the Week 248

For this week’s Succubi, I found a lovely piece of original art that the artist isn’t thrilled with, but I think it’s a beautiful rendering of a Succubus and I hope that they will see that sometime…

Succubus by Richytruong

Succubus by Richytruong

This work is simply called Succubus, and is by an artist on DeviantArt named Richytruong I found this work originally on DeviantArt here, and you can find the artist’s page on DeviantArt here as well.

I think of this piece of art as a really finely crafted painted portrait of a Succubus… It feels like something you might find in a art gallery of historical portraits, hanging beside an image of Cleopatra or Helen of Troy…

It captured so much emotion in her eyes, her pose, and her expression that I would think that it was based on a real person somehow…

I love the sparkles in her green eyes, the sheen of moisture in them makes them so life like and it’s something you never see all that much except in really fine art now and again… The texture of her hair is wonderful, a nice deep shiny brown colour that suits her quite well I think…

I will say that her horns, pointing downwards, are the only thing that bothers me a little bit about her, I have always liked small horns at point upwards myself for Succubi…

Her necklace is intriguing to me… I’m not sure exactly what it represents, but I think there is a story in that somewhere…

All in all, a lovely image of a lovely Succubi and I thank the artist for sharing her with us all…

Please do visit DeviantArt for more of this artist’s works and enjoy the talents they have to share!

    I agree that it is an absolutely stunning portrait. I find myself wondering if there was a model.

    As for the artist feeling it isn’t adequate, we both know artists who can be particularly hard on themselves without any reason we can see. Come to think of it, there is this brilliant raven-haired storyteller I know . . . 😉
