HDH147 - Who are you calling a Succubus!

At Haunted Design House this week you are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece that depicts a Succubus in one form or another.  Just what is a Succubus you may ask?
In folklore traced back to medieval legend, a succubus (plural succubi) is a female demon or supernatural being appearing in dreams, who takes the form of a human woman in order to seduce men, usually through sexual intercourse. The male counterpart is the incubus. Religious traditions hold that repeated intercourse with a succubus may result in the deterioration of health or even death.
In modern fictional representations, a succubus may or may not appear in dreams and is often depicted as a highly attractive seductress or enchantress; whereas, in the past, succubi were generally depicted as frightening and demonic.
Now ya know!

Yup that is right our sponsor this week is Kenny K

Kenny K has generously offered up 2 digis of choice to each
of the chosen Gruesome Twosome.

I used Atlantea and it doesn't look like it but it took me hours to colour her digitally.  My children all know my favourite colour is deep dark glorious RED but I am terrible at colouring with it. 

An Incubus is the Succubus in male form.

Anyways who doesn't want to win two free digi image from Kenny K!!!  Well get your thinking caps on think seduction to the mans destruction.
