Succubi Image of the Week 519

It is the last Succubi Image of the Week for 2017 and how time flies doesn’t it? I decided that for this week’s image I’d pick something that was a little bit different, but is every bit as succubish as I do like finding. Besides, I don’t think I’ve ever had one of the succubi appear with a leopard spotted dress before…

This delightful work is by an artist on DeviantArt called StudioBlueskies, and you can find the original page with this art here and this artist’s page on DeviantArt can be found here as well.

Just the most sinful smile she has, but really what I like is her overall look and the style of this artist. There’s a kind of flair to her, a personality in her expression, her pose and the overall look she has.

She’d make for a neat succubus foil to the main character of a comic book… or something…

It’s a shiny costume at least…

Sexy Devil CostumeAs much as I like shiny costumes, there are some that just don’t work for me. For the last costume of the year, something shiny, but that doesn’t help things at all.

This is called the Sexy Devil Costume and it comes with the dress, a tail, a pair of horns and wings. The fishnets and shoes are not included and it sells for $75 US.

It’s really not that inspiring honestly. The tail is attached with velcro, the horns use a thin piece of elastic to hold them in place, they aren’t very nice regardless. The wings are the usual cheap looking ones, which do nothing to make the dress better than it is. As for the dress, the flames are a bit poorly attached, the overall look isn’t exactly flattering as it is a bit cheap looking. As well, that zipper going up the front of the dress just removes any kind of seductiveness it has, never mind how come-hither the look the model is using can be.

As a whole the look is slightly better than cheap but still tacky. I think it could have been better with some more care taken to make the accessories better, to redesign the dress to put that zipper out of sight as well.

One pitchfork out of five.

This is another one of those costumes that gives me an idea, but not much else is attractive.

A Sexy Succubus Speedpainting YouTube

There is some Succubi art that I adore a little bit more than others. There’s a look, a smile, an expression of delightful mischievousness which I think is especially attractive. Thus, a YouTube speedpainting video today in which the Succubus herself is ever so wonderfully seductive… tail and all.


If the video doesn’t appear here on the Tale, please try this link.

The artist, Henry Barre, shared their finished art on DeviantArt and you can find that art here, but here is a smaller image in case the video is removed from YouTube.

Sexy Succubus by Henry Barre

She’s just simply wonderful in so many ways… Lovely deep eyes, striking smile, a pose that’s wonderfully seductive and, of course, a an exquisite tail. There’s just something about her look, the come-hither call of her song that just looks exactly right.

You can find more of Henry Barre’s art at the following websites:

A Review of Nun and Incubus: A Demon Breeding by Olivia Tomson

Nun and Incubus: A Demon Breeding by Olivia Tomson

Nun and Incubus: A Demon Breeding by Olivia Tomson

The background of a character matters in telling a story. It’s really not good enough to tease what that might be, or start to tell the secrets and then have the story suddenly come to a close. Similarly, hinting that things aren’t quite what they seem is but a tease of what otherwise is a story that needs to be told as well.

The other issue that comes is when the narrative wanders, seems to be going around in circles for no good reason other than to do so. It tends to leave a lot of story untold and left aside. Perhaps the most telling thing that suggests that a work might be lacking in a lot of ways can be a book summary that’s one sentence and that doesn’t give a lot of confidence in the story itself.

  • Title: Nun and Incubus: A Demon Breeding
  • Author: Olivia Tomson
  • Published By: Amazon Digital Services
  • Length: 41 Pages
  • Format: eBook
  • ASIN: B078HB1L7Q
  • Publishing Date: December 18, 2017
  • This work in Kindle Format at

The work tells of:

An odd little Nun summons a sex Demon! Read the erotic breeding by the demon.

The book summary is lacking in a lot of ways overall obviously and I think something a bit better might be: Cassandra has many questions about herself, not the least of which is why her eyes don’t look normal to others. Taking a chance she casts a spell looking for answers and a demon appears. The question is if the demon will have the answers and if Cassandra is willing to pay the price demanded to find out.”

There’s a lot missing in this work, not the least of which is something in the story that actually connects with the summary itself. The work spends a lot of time with Cassandra, telling a lot about her, at least what she knows before moving deeper into the story itself. Again, there’s a lot of time spent in Cassandra encountering the demon, which may or may not be an incubus, and the deal making is interesting in a convoluted way. But then the story turns sideways into the erotica and the story gets pushed aside for the rush to having Cassandra fall to the demon’s tender mercies.

The demon is never named, and that’s a shame because the character is interesting, there’s quite a lot of personality to be explored in them. The little minutia that’s touched on I really liked and it would have been good to explore his lair more than in passing. At the same time, he comments almost endlessly in his thoughts about Cassandra to the point where it is almost a running theme of impatience that overcomes him from time to time.

Beyond this, the setting really needed to be explored more, there’s a real feeling of things starting in one time period but then there’s a twist which suggests that this world’s setting is very unexpected. It is again something that needs to be explored more, but the time needed isn’t taken to do so.

The climax of the story is a lukewarm erotically, but at the same time it offers something of a hint as to Cassandra’s nature. Again, that isn’t explored, nor is the tease really played out. But it’s something to mull over and if she is what I think she is, then the book title and the incubus himself makes a good deal of sense. Still, that’s a question that the ending casts aside and leaves dangling.

There’s a feeling throughout that this should be the first work in an ongoing series, but there’s no evidence of this beings so. If there is something to follow this work, then there’s a lot of things to explore overall, not the least of which is Cassandra herself. But at the same time the incubus himself is just quirky enough that telling his story might be more interesting than that of Cassandra herself.

The work could use another editing pass, if only to fill in some of the blanks and certainly improve the dialogue and narrative which could use some cleaning up at least. Perhaps spending as much time that was spent on Cassandra going to the town at the beginning in telling something more about why the incubus is there, what he really wants and, in the moments before the story closes, just something more about Cassandra than her eyes changing all of the time.

Two pitchforks out of five.

It’s a shame that the story didn’t delve more into Cassandra herself, didn’t tell of the incubus more. It’s also a shame that the tease of the world not being quite as it seems wasn’t explored more either. There’s an interesting story here, one I’d like to have seen get past the erotica and certainly beyond the wanderings the story goes through at the beginning.

Succubi Image of the Week 518

It’s a few days before Christmas and for this week’s image I felt like I wanted something reflective, thoughtful, perhaps inspiring in a way. There’s some succubi art that I discover which is more than just what the succubus herself looks like. It is an expression of something more and this time of year, perhaps, it is a reminder as well…

Lilith's Redemption by Fireskin

Lilith’s Redemption by Fireskin

This art is called Lilith’s Redemption and is by an artist on DeviantArt called Fireskin. You can find the original page on DeviantArt with this work here and this artist’s page can be found here as well.

I find it a bit difficult to put into words the impact of this art, at least to me. I have my own beliefs and thoughts about Succubi and this art, in a way, speaks to me of something I’ve always pondered, both in my writing and other creative things I have done. That theological discussion isn’t the point of today’s post on the Tale of course, but I did want to express that, for me, the expression Lilith has here is a mixture of emotions that are quite telling.

This is a work of art that sets a mood and does so extremely well in the shadowing, the light, the form that Lilith is. She is the focus here, in the midst of all that surrounds her, but does not hold her. She is her own, by her choice, and with that comes the power she is.

Something to think about when looking at this art perhaps…

This isn’t that much of a Lady Devil honestly as a costume…

Lady Devil CostumeI think that style is important in costume design. It takes very little to ruin a costume or make it be outstanding. Sometimes that can be as little as a poor hem, an odd cut of a dress that takes away from what otherwise could be something amazing.

This is called the Lady Devil Costume and it comes with the dress and the horns. Stockings, pitchfork and shoes are not included and it sells for $45 US.

I actually like the off-the-shoulder look, I love the rose pattern as well. But the hemline looks like trash and otherwise ruins was could have been something really lovely.

The horns are far too small, almost like an afterthought, or some stock being cleared out. Either way I don’t care for them at all. As a whole ensemble, this really doesn’t work for me and that is a real shame.

That rose pattern is so very appealing and I think if this was a low cut dress to show off some cleavage, and a flowing train, I think that would have been delightful. But this is bordering on being trashy, especially with the stockings, shoes and pitchfork this model has.

Boreline sexy, but the trashy takes that all away. But the roses… That’s something for me to ponder…

One pitchfork out of five.

There is better, but there’s also an idea to play with I think…

A Review of Summoning the Incubus by Ciara Bane

Summoning the Incubus by Ciara Bane

Summoning the Incubus by Ciara Bane

A story that has incubus in the title, would tend to make one think that the incubus would be a central part of the story. That seems logical, it gives reason for the title and a certain expectation for the story itself. What happens, really too often, is that the incubus is an afterthought to much else, being on the edge of the story and used rather thinly.

Erotica alone does not a good story make, this is a view I have had many times before and it’s still something I find myself stressing. There needs to be heat, there needs to be character, but most of all, without a cohesive story to make things work, to explain why things are and to tell of the characters themselves, there’s a huge part missing. It really need not be.

The work tells of:

Max and his friend-with-benefits, Owen, are just hanging out when Owen invites Max to the party. A party with a bunch of other guys, all ready for anything. It turns out to be more than Max ever expected and he’s used in so many different ways but still left wanting more. Unfortunately for Max, it seems that the other partygoers have an ulterior motive in inviting him in. But the sexy incubus is more interested in Max than his revenge—but will Max let the demon claim mastery over him?

Max finds himself in a situation that he never expected, but dearly enjoys. While his friend might not have told him everything, there’s someone else who knows exactly what’s going on and what they desire. That desire is Max and soon enough he’ll discover that desire matches his own.

The work is, overall, mainly focused on male/male erotica and tends to leave story aside for the most part. The heat is good as a whole, but that seems to be all that the story cares about. At many points there’s story to be told, but the erotica rushes past things, pressing onto the next way that Max finds himself used. It’s that rush, the blurring of the couplings which takes away quite a lot from the story overall.

The summary tells of an Incubus appearing, being it seems a central part of the work, but that’s a bit misleading. Malachi, the incubus of the work, doesn’t actually appear until well past three quarters of the story has been told, which leaves little time to actually tell much about him beyond his physical form, how Max reacts to him, and then the story falls away for more erotica to take things over.

The work really isn’t about Malachi so much as it is about Max being used sexually in all sorts of different ways. Malachi could have been just a Dom and the story really wouldn’t have been all that different in how things turned out and what happened overall.

It’s the aspect of Malachi, of what’s happened to Max that interests me, but save for a few short words to offer a hint of that, the work sets that aside. There’s far more erotica than story and to me that leaves a lot to be desired. There’s an interesting plot thread left dangling at the end of the work which, to me, makes for what would be a good follow up to this work. Max’s story, where it goes from here, does interest me. What doesn’t is a story that’s mainly Max telling of the sex, being immersed in it, and leaving so much untold behind.

The work could use some editing to tell more of a story past the erotica, add more heat to Malachi and Max’s encounter as well. Further, there really needs to be more told about Malachi, how he came to be where he is and what he desires from Max as well. The mystery here isn’t the sex, it’s what comes after the story ends. It’s a lost opportunity to make this story more than the erotica is it and into something far more interesting given the chance to do so.

Two and a half out of five pitchforks.

Somewhat disappointing in that the story is the erotica and more so that this isn’t so much an incubus story than one about M/m domination as a whole. It’s a start, there’s a story to be told, but it’s drowned in the sex which is the real shame.
