A YouTube speedpainting of Lucie Wilde as Morrigan Aensland

Something a little bit different as an art YouTube this time on the Tale. It’s an artist drawing an image of Morrigan Aensland, but using as their base a photograph of Lucie Wilde. I think the end result is quite fascinating in many ways, but most of all in how there’s something about the look of the art that does reflect the actress herself quite well.


If you can’t see this video here on the Tale, please try this link.

I’m also going to share a screenshot of the base photograph and then the completed artwork as well, in the event that YouTube makes it all vanish…

The base photograph that was used:

Lucie Wilde


And the completed artwork of Morrigan Aensland created by this artist:

It’s clearly the actress in this art, but what I really like most of all is the overall style of the artist’s creation. It’s looks rough, but at the same time there’s a personality in that style which I think is interesting. It’s almost like a charcoal drawing, and I don’t see many of that style appearing.

Quite lovely and unique as well!

Succubi Image of the Week 525

Occasionally I stumble across an image of one of the succubi that seems to have a little hint of something within it. This time on the Tale, a piece of succubus art which has a rather obvious connection to a well-known succubus, and considering that succubus doesn’t appear as much as her older sister, I think it is a delight to find…

This work is by an artist on Pixiv called blooooock and you can find the original page on Pixiv with this art here.

While her outfit, and the colours that appear, suggest Lilith Aensland, in a way, clearly this isn’t her. But I love this character, especially the look in her eyes, that lovely tail and her pose. There’s a story behind this, or there should be I think as well. I wonder what that little sign is all about, what her story is s well.

She’s cute, but pensive and that really comes out in her expression and the look in her eyes. I find myself wondering if Lilith had been draw like this, slightly older, if she’d be drawn more than she is, all things considered…

Something sexy for Valentine’s Day perhaps as a costume…

Hot Devil LingerieValentine’s Day is but a week away, and I found myself pondering a costume which, honestly, gave me a bemused smile… and some interesting ideas to think about. It’s just that side of trashy however, in a few ways, but perhaps there’s some hope for it, given a tweak or two…

Now, I know this costume has appeared on the Tale some time ago, in a slightly different form, but there’s one small change that I think makes things a little different.

This is called the Hot Devil Lingerie Costume and it comes with the wet look bra top, the fishnet skirt, black faux garter straps, a red wet look panty, the fishnet gloves, the red choker and the red horn headband. The pitchfork isn’t included, nor are shoes, but what’s interesting is that one website is selling the thigh-high latex stockings as part of this costume in a choice of either red or black. The ensemble sells on that site for $55 US, and considering the costume alone sells usually for $40, that’s not a poor deal really.

I don’t care for the choker, or the metal studs that are all over this costume. The garters are nothing special either as well. I like the skirt, save for the metal studs and I’ll admit the bra isn’t that awful really.

Overall, it’s not so much what this looks like, but rather the idea it gave me and what I’m going to do with it.

But that’s something to surprise my Eternal with…

A sexy purple succubus YouTube speedpainting

Purple succubi are a rare thing to find, and it’s more so to find a YouTube of an artist creating a character that looks wonderful, has a captivating smile, and seems to have the makings of a story as well.


If you can’t see this video here on the Tale, please try this link.

The artist also displayed their completed art on DeviantArt and you can find the original page here and this artist’s page on DeviantArt can be found here as well.

In the event that the video, or the art, vanishes, here’s their completed art as well…

She’s just so perfectly sexy in so many ways. Her smile, the gleam in her eyes, that lovely tail just makes me smile. The contrast between her skin and her lingerie brings out her form and just adds that little something that makes her really unique. I also think it’s nice how her horns match her skin and tail as well.

Love her hair and the details in her wings are amazingly well done too. There’s a story to her, somewhere, and perhaps that’s something for me to mull over and so something with.

Succubi Image of the Week 524

For this week’s Succubi of the Week art, I am going to share a piece of artwork of Myserra, the main Succubus character from the Succubus’ Sub book series and the graphic novel which I’ve spoken about before… I adore Myserra and when I find art that reflects well upon her, I so love to share that art here on the Tale. Some of those do focus, a bit, one’s attention on her tail… both of them…

This work was drawn by the artist LMSketch and coloured by the artist Vintem and you can find the original page on Hentai Foundry with this artwork here.

Myserra is just drawn here so wonderfully well, her expression has that right hint of tease and dominance that I do like her to have. Lovely shine on her lips, her skin too and the texture and sheen in her hair works so very well by far. The pose is different but I really do like how it focuses attention on her tail… which of them I leave up to the viewer of course…

Sexy, dominant and alluring… everything dearest Myserra should be…

It doesn’t take much to make a costume trashy…

Devilicious CostumeIf there’s one accessory that I cannot stand when it comes to costumes, that has to be the waist cincher. They look ugly, braking up what otherwise could be, if one is very lucky, a decent looking dress. But they keep appearing, for reasons I cannot understand.

This costume is called the Devilicious Costume and it comes with the red gown, the black waist cincher, a sheer black cape and the red horns headband. The shoes and other accessories are not included and you can find this costume on various sites for between $20 and $30 US.

The dress is rather plain, but that black cincher just adds so much tacky to the overall look that cannot be ignored. Even if the horns don’t quite look right, or the dress isn’t that flattering, or the cape isn’t anything special, that cincher just doesn’t work at all.

I hesitate to say this, but adding the most disliked of all of the pitchforks I’ve come across would be better than that cincher is.

That said, I don’t care for this look very much, though at least the dress has a relatively decent cut to the hem and slits. Perhaps some folds or texture to the dress would help, the cincher needs to go of course and perhaps a little more effort needs to be taken to make the cape less of an afterthought and something more.

Two and a half out of five pitchforks.

Perhaps someday that cincher will no longer exist. I can hope at least.

A Review of Incubus by M. Reed

Incubus by M. Reed

Incubus by M. Reed

There are some stories where it really is a shame that things come to a close far too soon. Time is spent telling of the characters, making relationships and they trying to figure the other out. There’s a dose of the universe they exist in, there’s a hint of how things work. Something happens, it changes things and makes the story that much more interesting… just as the ending makes everything come to a screeching halt.

However, sometimes there comes a story which is the opening to something more, the start of a series. That brings the hope that there’s more story to be told. It also brings the worry that the author will set what’s a cute and sexy story for the sake of moving onto something else.

One can hope for the better outcome of course.

The work tells of:

Martingale, a store located on the astral plane, caters to the needs of beings both magical and paranormal. It’s unusual for non-magical humans to stroll the aisles of Martingale, but Kayla has managed to land a job there anyway. Her job gets much more complicated when she befriends an incubus, and can’t help but feel attracted to him. But will she be able to handle it if he returns her interest?

Kayla finds herself in a situation she didn’t quite expect. It’s not dealing with supernatural beings, nor is it that her new position in sales isn’t a challenge, because it is. It’s her new co-worker, Azeil, who she discovers is an incubus, and she can’t get him out of her mind. But then, Azeil has his own problems… and fears.

Overall the work is a cute mixture of romance with the occasional delightful bit of humour tossed in to keep the main characters fresh and interesting. There is a bit of erotica tossed in, mainly in the climax of the work, but this isn’t so much about the main characters getting together as it is the two of them working out their feelings and moving onwards with their relationship.

That makes the story really enjoyable because it isn’t about Kayla and Azeil been intimate with each other. It’s about Kayla figuring out what she wants, how Azeil reacts to himself. This is the driving force in the work and how that all collides and bounces together and apart makes for a cute and fun read.

Azeil, the incubus of the work, is delightfully unique, there’s nothing stereotypical about him. Similarly, when the author tells of both succubi and incubi, it’s clear they aren’t the traditional sort, at least the few that are encountered. To that point, there’s a succubus called Meredith that I wish had been more in the work than she is. She’s a presence, a really interesting one, but is fleeting.

That is the real issue with the work overall, it’s fleeting in some details, there’s bits which could have been expanded on, more story told, but they aren’t. It turns the work into a hot flash in which the heat is held at bay, the characters are trying to find themselves, and just when things are explained, the work comes to a screeching halt.

It’s troubling because how the work ends leaves so much story to tell. The work is too short, coming to a close right when things really started to get interesting. I really liked both Azeil and Kayla and honestly how things ended there’s still so much story to tell. It’s the missing bits and pieces of this story that bother me, mainly in that the author didn’t expand the work beyond what it is.

That said, the work seems to be the beginning of a series who’s title amuses me all things considered. Hopefully these characters won’t be left behind, and there will be more told about where Azeil and Kayla find themselves.

That, to me, is the story that needs to be told.

Three and a half out of five pitchforks.

There’s a lot to like in this work, more to love, but it’s too short and leaves hanging so many plot threads and ideas. Hopefully the author will continue the story of these characters in the next part of the series. We shall see and hope.
