Succubi Image of the Week 440

While I like to believe that, as a whole, Succubi are not warriors, there are some images of Succubi in a warrioress role, or look, or pose, that I think very highly of. A lot of that comes to the character, how they look, the determination in their eyes. Sometimes wisdom and strength is seen within. Without is where the battle begins and, for some opponents, the battle is lost with the first look they are given…

White Haired Half Succubus – color by InputJack

This work is called White Haired Half Succubus and is by the artist InputJack on DeviantArt. You can find the original page on DeviantArt with this work here and this artist’s page can be found here as well.

The artist tells the story that this character is an Alu Demon, or “half Succubus”, whose human half was a traditional “White Haired Witch” from Chinese legends. While she is not named, the artist did note that besides her Succubus powers she can also manipulate and lengthen her hair.

I think this is an amazing character in many ways. Most striking to me is her pose, how she appears in the midst of being ready to attack, or defend. But beyond that here is a confidence, a strength in her expression that I think tells the better story. It seems to me that there is a real sense of honour in her, that she is sure of who she is, what she can do, and is not afraid to confront those that oppose her.

I love her hair, simply wonderful, her choice of weapon, the perfect mix of attire that she is wearing. Just a well thought out and created character that expresses, for me, the hidden strength that the best of the Succubi have within them…
