This is my entry for the contest Monsters and Nightmares at Addictive Hobby. I am very happy with it, I have been wanting to use a better storytelling in my images, and this one gave me the opportunity to do so. Besides I could practice folds, which is much needed :)



Wonderful stock by :iconmjranum-stock:
Thanks to the Epilogue crew that helped me through this one, you rock!

*and I am going to be sneaky and play a little experiment on non-watchers*

Thanks James! I got a lot of help on the kintones from Karyn (:iconnyrak:) who pointed out that she looked rather grayish.

This is so creepy and yet very beautiful at the same time. She looks so sensual in such a beautiful way, and yet there are so many signs pointing out "evil" in her. I love her almost classic pose, and the handprints and water drops on the window are just perfect, and add an even creepier feel to the painting. I love the folds in the cloth too! Definitely leaves me a bit frightened if I was ever to come across this temptress. My only consolation is that I hope she only goes after men =P

Only critique is that she seems to have really long legs. I'm not sure if it's maybe because I can't see all of them though. I only noticed this after staring at it for about 10 minutes though! She's really mesmerizing!

Thanks a lot Ashley! Traditionally succubi go after men only, otherwise it would be an incubus, but in these modern times who knows? she might be a bi :XD:
I am glad you perceive all that from the painting, I wanted er to be beautiful and yet portray a sense of danger with hints in the picture.
I think she might have long legs, since her torso cam rather short, it was a mistake, but I didn't bother to fix it because it was still aesthetically pleasing.

Although I'm not attracted to women in that way, I have to say I'd still find it pretty scary if she was bi. I wouldn't feel safe anymore XD

Some previous commentators have stated what I want to say. I'm really surprised by both your style and your improvement. Very good Coty, and I really look forward to see what you'll come up with next time :thumbsup:.

And trust me, that voting sucks!

"the other entries were more upfront nightmarish, but I am more on the subtle end of the specter."


what's more scarey....something that hides it's true identity in the darkness and is sly, sneaky, plotting...or something that admits what it is outright and shows that it is a monster?

i agree with you coty, subtle and sly is much more scarey and deceptive!!!!

do you have a link to this contest? i'd like to go take a look!

this is nice, cause it draws you into a story, gets your thinking!!!

Gret idea, it's very macabre (I never know if I spell that word right)! And about the votes, I think the people with the most votes just ask other people to vote for them.. happens most of the time, I think it's really annoying and not objective. But good luck with the contest, I hope the winners will be deserved!

Oh, don't get me wrong. I am not upset at all about the voting, the other entries were more nightmarish and monstrous in your face, I know also that my style is not the most favoured by people, nor cartoon neither realist. But it's cool with me.
Thanks for liking it though ;)

I know, I just really hate the voting system :P It seems like the people asking people to vote for them always win, I can't stand that.

Thanks! Those were a challenge! Probably spent on them as much as in the rest of the pic, I found a couple of tutorials that helped me. And I have to say that is the first time I am happy with using Photoshop tricks.

Oh, this one is beautiful! One of my favs from you. My only critique is that it would do good with a little more space at the top, above the head of the character. :-)

Thanks a lot, Henning! I really am happy with it.
You are right about the top of the image, is there any way of knowing before someone else points it out? I still am trying to do better in my compositions.
