Heretic princess
Devil's own
Her seductive elegance
Excites your weak flesh
Her diabolical beauty
Enchants your bewildered mind

I can't possibly find enough words to convey my astonishment.
This piece is so gorgeously made, that it's so hard to believe this has been manipulated.
It looks like a fabulous commercial photograph, for some great clothing designer or a perfume...
I wouldn't be surprised if one would want this as a commercial, the colours are strikingly stunning and her expression is simply priceless.
I dig everything about this, you're extraordinary.
I remember skipping through your gallery some time ago, but I wasn't at home and couldn't comment on anything really... I just remember being overwhelmed by your miraculous brushwork, and now this?
I'm captivated.

A definite :+fav: to you and my complete admiration as well,

:heart:

im definitely riffing on the emotional 'punch' of this piece. japanese geisha girls have an incredible mysteriousness about them with that added little extra of sexual tension (a lot of sweating to get under those kimono's). the colour red is therefore used well to bring out that emotional edge.

i read suzi9mm's critique and i agree with her points but for me im focussing on the resultant effect of the piece. i like the use of the birds (imply fleetingness and impermanence) but im not so sure about the use of succubus for the title (perhaps because im not sure about the succubus, apart from knowing its some kind of demon) although i suppose that reflects on the slightly darker side of emotion and sexuality (which can be personified by the geisha)

so i guess this works really well as each element seems to come full circle and meet up again in a well worked whole.

good job and fave

The succubus is a female demon who comes in and has sex with her victims as they sleep, much like the incubus, who is male... at least thats my knowledge of it!

always like reading your comments, they seem so genuine :aww:

very nice. i like the colors, composition, model, execution... and the idea of course, it's really neat to combine 'succubus' with that traditional japanese look, she's got them both :P i esp. dig the make up whether done in real or photoshop. background work deserves a mentioning too. there is some slight blurry feel that bugs me, like by her left should the red 'bleeds' on to her skin from the fabric... also i think there could be more focus, maybe on the eyes, but in general i'd like to see some more detail. also the ends of the brows seem to be photoshopped but a blurry trail gives them away, i would fix that. but that's just me. a long comment of which most seems to be complaining, but that's just my 2 cents and if i didn't really enjoy this one i wouldn't bother tell all those things. keep it up, you have eye :nod:

thank you so much for taking the time to give your very flattering opinions on my work! I can see what you mean about the blurring and bleeding, and yeah I need to spend more time working on my technique to blend things better. I didn't take your comments as complaints, I took them as deserved critique that inspires me to keep going and motivates me to improve.

thanks again, you certainly made me feel proud to have caught your attention :aww:
