There are, from time to time, art of succubi in which the background and what’s going on around the succubus is as interesting as she is. For this week’s succubi, an image in which the succubus herself tells a story, but then so does the rest of the picture being painted. Her name is Shiklah and, at one time, she was intimately connected with Deadpool in that comic book series. For me, it’s what hasn’t been told about her that’s as interesting as what has been.
This work is by the artist Candra on DeviantArt and you can find the original page with this art here and this artist’s page can be found on DeviantArt here as well.
Overall, I think this is one of the most amazing images of Shiklah that I have found. She’s powerful, seductive and it feels like there’s a lot of her character coming out in this work. Lovely eyes, her pursed lips are just right. A pose that offers so much to see of her, and yet the balance of the story is also told by the little creature she’s petting and the chaos that is swirling around her.
I have to say I was a bit disappointed in her character arc. Perhaps that’s something to ponder about sometime. That said, this art is a delightful portrait of a succubus of power, unafraid of who she is and what she can do.
