“Shiya” starring Nici Dee — casual Friday…

Nici Dee: Shiya, by Alex Lynn, stunning Asian beauty in hot nude pixQuick, describe the setting of a typical Metart erotic photo gallery. I imagine that many members would choose a sun-kissed beach, an inviting boudoir, or perhaps a stylishly decorated photo studio. But I very much doubt anyone would select an office. But that’s exactly where “Shiya” was photographed — a large, somewhat drab, office filled with desks, chairs, computers, monitors, and the mundane accessories of a typical business. No, this is far from a typical Metart series, but it is a most welcome addition, nonetheless.

I’ve never viewed a set by Alex Lynn, and I’ll give him full points for the concept and creation of this unusual — and unusually satisfying — collection. The office is an unusual choice, but artist and model use it to their collective benefit.

Ah, the model. This is only her forth appearance at Metart, and it’s the first time I’ve seen Nici Dee, but I can tell you immediately and without reservation that this is an exceptionally talented, and extremely beautiful young woman. It’s easy to focus on her breasts — they’re really exquisite — but in every other detail and aspect her physique is simply stunning. And this exotic, cat-eyed beauty has a remarkably expressive and appealing face. She has a look and presence that’s all her own and there is real depth and range in her presentation.

Nici Dee tends to operate in a muted, thoughtful zone, and that seems particularly well suited to the deserted office setting. In #004, for example, the top edge of the computer monitor on her desk is blurred in the extreme foreground and Nici, still clothed, sits gazing thoughtfully out the window — it’s not so much a pose as an evocation of a day in the life. And when Nici begins to remove her office-appropriate outfit, “Shiya” swings from thoughtful to thrilling. If her imagined coworkers knew what was hidden by that modest outfit they wouldn’t get a single thing done all day.

Of course, we’re treated to a full and comprehensive view of Nici’s many and splendid assets — explicit close-ups, evocative and mesmerizing headshots, a couple of subtle and utterly disarming smiles, and image after image of a gloriously sculpted body in a wonderful variety of poses and compositions. High praise to this beautiful model and the clever and creative artist who captured her here. “Shiya” is definitely not just another day at the office.

“Muhica,” starring Sabrisse A — lovely, liquid, interlude…

Sabrisse A: Muhica, by Luca Helios, Metart HD erotic movie

When I critiqued Sabrisse A’s very first Metart erotic photo gallery I noted a moody, thoughtful quality in her presentation. Now I have the welcome opportunity to view her very first Metart HD erotic movie, “Muhica,” and I can’t help but wonder if the qualities I so enjoyed in her still photos would translate to motion pictures.

I have my answer almost immediately after pressing “play.” And that answer is an emphatic “Yes!” Luca Helios, who shot this model’s debut, is in the director’s chair for “Muhica.” While the artist also crafted a still photo collection at the same location — you’ll find “Perenne” here — this is not one of those movies in which the video is shot over the photographer’s shoulder as he shoots his pictures. “Muhica” is a stand-alone, no-excuses, short film, and quite a beautiful one, at that.

The setting certainly helps — the action takes place in and around an infinity pool overlooking a lush forest. The crisp angles of the deck, the smooth surfaces, the crystal water, and a stylish outdoor shower crafted of stainless steel, provide a pleasing and versatile “stage” for Sabrisse to perform on (and in).

The moody, thoughtful qualities I noted in Sabrisse’s debut are, indeed, on display her, as is her splendidly shapely body. And so is an elegance and grace in motion — Sabrisse absolutely knows how to move in an eye-pleasing and dance-like manner that has a mesmerizing quality. She strips out of her bathing suit quickly, and then spends the balance of the film diving into the pool, swimming, walking along the edge of the pool, posing on the polished deck, and finally bathing in the rain-like spray of the shower.

The pace here is leisurely, almost liquid in its smooth, gentle tempo. Sabrisse A, at long range or in explicit close-up, is a physical and visual delight, and Luca Helios knows how to capture her with an unobtrusive style that gives Sabrisse the space and freedom to flow with her emotions and express herself with honesty and great beauty. As the Summer of 2014 continues to sizzle, “Muhica” offers a cool, refreshing, beautiful, and invitingly erotic interlude.

“Presenting” Daisy — a beauty blossoms…

Daisy: Presenting, by Arkisi, new model in beautiful erotic art photosIt’s not a secret, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love reviewing a model’s very first Metart erotic photo gallery. They’re not always an unqualified success, mind you. Sometimes a model has the physical charms, but lacks polish in her performance. And there are times when a new girl, through no fault of her own, simply doesn’t “do it” for me. But the lure of the unknown, the thrill of discovery, the chance to experience a new model for the very first time, it exerts a powerful appeal.

And, in the case of “Presenting,” a showcase for newcomer Daisy, that appeal is very real. Physically, Daisy is cream-skinned perfection. Her body is curvaceous and inviting, her breasts are full but in perfect proportion, and her face, framed by flowing waves of lustrous hair, is simply beautiful — her blue eyes twinkle and a warm, genuine smile is never far from her luscious lips. To further enhance her presentation, Daisy is as comfortable as can be in front of Arkisi’s camera, and offers her intimate bits for explicit, extended, examination enthusiastically.

Arkisi covers some stylistic ground here. The setting, a bedroom with 60s-style pop art paintings on the wall, seems real, not too fussed-over. He’s given Daisy a black beaded necklace (that I could probably live without) and a pair of sexy black panties (that are removed with admirable haste). The artist delivers thoughtful detail shots — #016, a butt shot with an explicit glimpse is one example, and those beautiful breasts are also featured. The erogenous zones also receive ample exposure, often at close range.

Most of my favorites in “Presenting” include Daisy’s face and emphasize her beguiling eyes. #073, on all fours, offers sweetness and a touch of glamour along with the explicit elements. I love the hint of a smirk on Daisy’s lips in #097. And two shots — #094 and #095 — this undeniably beautiful new model and the artist photographing her create pure, irresistible magic. In these images, and throughout the remainder of the series, we get to discover new beauty and watch it blossom before our eyes. I look forward to more from this alluring new addition to Metart!

“Ydenar” starring Mango A — postcards from paradise…

Mango A: Ydenar, by Vlad Kleverov, nude beauty poses in paradiseSay what you will about craft, technique, and the photographer’s art. In my position as Metart‘s in-house blogger I’ve said much on those topics and will say more in the future. And one can rant and rave about a model’s beauty, charm, talents, and skill — we all do it, whether in the comments, in conversation, or in our minds, and I do it on this blog. But there are times when the artist’s ability and the model’s beauty take a back seat to a third factor. Let me be clear: Vlad Kleverov is a talented artist, and Mango A is a beautiful, adorable, and entirely beguiling young woman. But in “Ydenar” the breathtaking location is the outstanding ingredient in an entirely enjoyable and entertaining Metart erotic photo series.

The location is spectacular. The sky is vivid blue, the sun is high, and Mango A is posing in the crystal clear waters of some unidentified tropical sea. The white sand beneath the shallow water hosts an assortment of large starfish in varied shades of red. A school of small, silvery fish swim cautiously nearby. A sailboat at anchor bobs gently on the dark blue water in the background. And for every sun-kissed moment, in every pose, submerged, standing, clothed or nude, or somewhere in between, Mango A is loving the experience, loving the camera, loving the warmth of the sun, the cool water, the sheer beauty of the setting. If you spend your days cooped up in a cubicle, toiling in a warehouse or factory, or taking notes during yet another lecture, “Ydenar” provides an instant vacation escape to a beautiful time and place, with a delectable and delightful traveling companion.

While it is, quite literally, a “day at the beach,” shooting “Ydenar” was no picnic for the artist. The shifting light, the reflections off the sand and water — even a passing cabin cruiser filled with gawking tourists — each present considerable challenges, but Kleverov skillfully avoids these pitfalls and even in the demanding conditions produces image after image filled with perfectly exposed, richly colored views of perfection.

Apart from a fine gold chain that starts as a necklace and wraps around her waist, and a pair of earrings, Mango A is only wearing a white bodysuit. “Fully dressed” shots like #016, with Mango on her back, partially submerged, fish circling, and starfish at her feet, are “suitable for framing.” But then so is #079, a back shot, white fabric encircling her hips, blue water transitioning seamlessly to blue sky on the horizon. Yes we get enticing close-ups of Mango’s mouthwatering, sea-water-slick intimate anatomy. And, in a set that includes 156 images, we get pose after pose and view after view of this bronzed goddess in a heavenly setting. “Ydenar” offers postcards from paradise, and plenty of them.

“Presenting” Kika — redhead/white room…

Kika: Presenting, by Alex Iskan, nude redhead in hot explicit art pixThe artist, Alex Iskan, has designed an impressively effective set for this new model’s debut Metart erotic photo gallery. I do like the model, Kika, very much, but let me first discuss the setting in which she’s so skillfully presented.

Kika, wearing only a simple white tank top, is sitting in a clear, spherical, bubble chair suspended by a silver chain from the ceiling. The chair’s cushion, and every other surface in the room is a shade of white. The white walls are upholstered in quilted off-white pale gray material. The white floor has been buffed to a mirror gloss. The lighting is bright, free of glare, and uniform. The set is at once futuristic and retro (thanks largely to the swinging sixties modern the chair) at once. It’s a dramatic design, but there’s also a certain subtlety — the room doesn’t distract or detract, indeed, it provides a flattering and versatile backdrop on which to present this pretty newcomer.

Kika seems at home and at ease in this stylized environment. There isn’t a hint of first time jitters in her presentation or performance. And, for a new and presumably somewhat inexperienced model, she displays a varied range of emotions along with a pleasing selection of interesting, stylish, and revealing poses. While a certain amount of shyness can be excused in the initial offering from a new model, Kika is quite the opposite. She can project coy innocence, when she wants to, but she offers every anatomical aspect of her beautiful body to the camera without hesitation or reservation.

The following list is far from complete, but here’s a selection of my favorite images from “Presenting” Kika: #001, nothing showing except a hint of the personality about to be revealed along with a well composed view of the set design. #019, once again no flesh on display but I find this modest pin-up pose particularly pretty. #036 squatting, on her tip-toes, spread and gripping her beautiful breasts with a big smile on her face. #071, a variation on an explicit all-fours pose, backside to the camera, right leg gracefully extended, with an enticing facial expression. And #117, a topless shot with a potent dose of beauty and attitude. A beautifully conceived and executed photo series.

“Cambio” starring Josephine — a fascination with feet and fingers…

Josephine: Cambio, by Rylsky, nude pix, toes, feet, and fingers featuredI’m not tasked with critiquing sets photographed by the erotic stylist Rylsky as often as I once was, so it’s nice to have the opportunity to discuss one of his more recent galleries, “Cambio.”

The first shot in the series catches me off guard. It’s not a headshot of raven-haired Josephine. Nor is it a clothed, full-body shot of the type many Metart contributors start their pictorials off with. No, it’s a detail shot, a close-up of the model’s feet and fingers. Unexpected? Certainly. Thought-provoking? Absolutely. An intriguing and off-beat way to introduce a model? To be sure! As I explore the set further I soon discover that Josephine possesses abundant physical beauty, but that extremities-centric intro image sets the tone for “Cambio” and those toes, feet, fingers, and hands play an out-sized role in this erotic photo collection. The foot-fetishists in the audience are going to love “Cambio,” I suspect, but the collection’s charms will appeal to the casual viewer, as well.

This is only Josephine‘s second appearance in a Metart erotic photo set. She’s confident and uninhibited, two qualities that certainly help when she’s only been given a shirt as her costume. Even as Rylsky moves Josephine through a range of poses, she remains in a somewhat narrow emotional range. She has a very pretty face, with exceptionally beautiful eyes — a headshot, #086 captures them particularly well — but I believe that if she “let her hair down” emotionally, she could be far more expressive. Still, there’s something intriguing about her restraint.

After I’ve viewed the entire set I read Josephine’s bio in which she declares: “I am very shy.” Those words may seem unlikely coming from a young woman who has posed nude for explicit erotic photos, but it makes sense, and helps explain certain inscrutable aspects of Josephine’s presentation. I, for one, am delighted that Josephine has chosen to address her shyness by sharing her beauty and body with Metart and the world!

I’ll conclude by calling out a selection of my favorite photographs in “Cambio.” #002 for cuteness, with a hint of the heat yet to come. The series of shots between #042 and #045 of Josephine’s feet and hands. The painterly composition of #090 and #092, with the model’s eyes averted. The four shots from #098 through #101, all of which capture the beauty of the model’s body. And #114, a topless shot in which Josephine treats us to a subtle little smile, a highlight of the collection.

“Ekeini” starring Victoriya A — a variable, versatile vixen…

Victoriya A: Ekeini, by Egon Schneider, young girl/very hairy pussyI must admit, it took a while for this Metart gallery — and this model — to grow on me. This has happened to me enough in the past that I now welcome this initial reaction, because it most often means that I’ll end up with a deeper appreciation for the series — and its subject — once I’ve come to fully understand it.

The setting — a bedroom or perhaps a luxe hotel room — is pleasant enough, with a neutral color scheme. Egon Schneider‘s approach is direct and free of drama or frills — no fancy lighting, no experimental technique, just well-crafted photography.

The model, Victoriya A, first struck me as simply a young, girl next door type. This initial impression — or, truthfully, this misjudgment — was the biggest (self-inflicted) obstacle to my full appreciation of “Ekeini.” Yes, Victoriya can appear to be a typical, 19-year-old girl next door. But that’s just one look of many this model is capable of. And the more I looked, the more I began to realize just how variable her expression and appearance can be. Victoriya A has a real gift for projecting a wide variety of moods and emotions. She’s a young innocent one moment, and the next she’s a sultry, seasoned siren.

As I marveled at each chameleonic shift in Victoriya A‘s on-camera personality, I finally came to understand what a rich, varied, engaging, and entertaining performance this is. And Schneider’s workmanlike style never overpowers his subject, indeed the subtlety of his approach lets Victoriya’s beauty and ability blossom over the course of a particularly generous 143 images.

I don’t care much for the costume, but that doesn’t matter — it comes off quickly and returns for a handful of playful images at the end of the set. Once Victoriya is nude we enjoy as she experiments with poses, attitudes, and emotions. She’s thoughtful (#009 or #046), she’s warmly seductive (#074), she’s confident and composed (#075), and she’s irresistibly cute (#069) — sexy, alluring, sultry, playful, the list goes on.

Schneider gets complete coverage. We’re provided with sensitive, moody headshots, formal poses and compositions, and many explicit images. Not only do we get to experience the variable personality of this versatile vixen in “Ekeini,” we also savor her physical attributes in comprehensive detail. A very satisfying effort by model and artist, alike.

“Calathe,” starring Gillian B — breaking barriers, beautifully…

Gillian B: Calanthe, by Flora, Metart HD erotic movieWhenever Metart‘s collection of HD erotic movies is mentioned — either on this blog or in member comments — controversy is quick to follow. Some members object to the so-called “behind the scenes” movies (filmed over the photographer’s shoulder during a still shoot). Others mention the lack of action, or plot, or explicit imagery, or a general lack of creativity and inspiration on the part of the filmmaker.

Metart‘s creative team is well aware of the challenges the format presents. They’ve issued new standards to the directors of their films, strongly discouraging behind the scenes style productions. Although I have been less than impressed by some of the Metart films I’ve viewed, I still think the genre — short, stylish, narrative-free, soft-core erotica — has real potential. And I’ve critiqued several films that were of remarkable quality, genuine works of erotic art. I’ve just added “Calathe” to my personal favorites list — if you’ve been disappointed by Metart‘s films in the past, this one is going to make you a believer.

Director Flora is quickly distinguishing herself as a master of the Metart short film formula. The concept, art direction, cinematography, editing, and thoughtful style she employs in “Calathe” are very much in the Metart mold, but she also explores the boundaries of the genre. How explicit is too explicit for Metart? Flora — and her beautiful, shapely, and uninhibited star, Gillian B — address that question by pushing the limits of the soft-core genre. In the process they break through some barriers, and they do it beautifully and with maximum impact.

Gillian B, wearing a bright green lingerie ensemble and red heels sits on a couch in a room decorated in a retro-mod style. From the beginning she radiates a warm, playful, seductive attitude. It’s not at all forced, and it’s completely engaging. She reveals her breasts with a flourish, and, in a tightly framed portrait of perfection, teases her nipples.

Throughout the film Flora periodically cuts to black, creating a visual pause, then returning to the scene. And as that scene progresses, and Gillian removes her panties, those pauses allow the viewer to catch his breath — this is a hot, explicit, and highly erotic film!

Gillian, a sly smile never far from her luscious lips, tiptoes — or should I say “tipfingers”? — right up to the edge of outright masturbation. She strokes the soft skin surrounding her sex, then she pets, strokes, and plays her hands seductively across the open, pouting, glistening petals of her femininity.

Moving from the sofa, on her knees, legs spread, back to the camera, Gillian B continues her eye-opening/eye-pleasing display. The explicit detail is a torrid treat, Gillian’s performance an enticing, pulse-elevating exercise in seduction. With “Calathe,” Flora and her glorious star set a new standard for Metart short film excellence, and they do it with skill, finesse, beauty, sensuality and by breaking barriers, beautifully.

“Enhavo” with Vanessa Angel — a new girl in the neighborhood…

Vanessa Angel: Enhavo, by Deltagamma, nude erotic art photosTraditionally, when a new model appears in her first Metart erotic photo gallery that gallery is titled “Presenting _________,” with the model’s name filling the blank. In the case of this new model’s debut, however, it was given a title, “Enhavo,” but be assured that this is Vanessa Angel’s first appearance at Metart. So, that procedural point aside, I’ll share my impressions.

The first six images in “Enhavo” are monochromes, but even when the artist, Deltagamma, switches to color photos, my initial reaction is very much that Vanessa Angel is a “girl next door” type. She possesses an amiable warmth, and her long, dark hair frames a face that is certainly angelic. Vanessa’s eyes — exceptionally big, glossy dark brown orbs — are a most noteworthy feature, and the artist offers a varied selection of headshots and portraits that beautifully capture them.

This is a debut set, as mentioned, and while Vanessa does project personality and readily assumes whatever pose the photographer suggests, including numerous intimate close-ups, she is not overly  expressive in “Enhavo.” Vanessa’s default demeanor is cheerful, relaxed, and friendly, with just a hint of intriguing melancholy in those big, brown eyes. I could certainly be wrong about that subtle undercurrent of sadness — but have a look at #036, and see if you don’t agree with my observation. On the other hand, when Vanessa shares a smile, as she does in #011, a pretty topless shot, she’s as warm, sincere, and happy as one could ask for.

Much of “Enhavo” finds Vanessa posing in front of a window, and this is where her girl next door quality is at its most pronounced. Later on she moves to a white leather sofa, and here she’s more polished and sophisticated in her presentation. Two of my favorites from this sub-group are #097, boldly and stylishly posed with explicit impact, and #111, a more demure, but no less appealing image. #129, a fully clothed shot, has a thoughtful, natural quality that is also quite pleasing.

Deltagamma closes out the collection with another selection of monochromes as well as a few more dramatically manipulated images. This creative experimentation is interesting and adds variety and visual punch to “Enhavo.” There’s a new girl in the Metart neighborhood — it will be interesting to see how she evolves in future galleries.

“Presenting” Tayla — stripping down to stunning simplicity…

Tayla: Presenting, by Alex Iskan, blue-eyed beauty/explicit pix

Evaluating a new model’s debut appearance at Metart is one of the (many) highlights of my position as in-house blogger. I do have my favorites among the established models, of course, and I always look forward to seeing new work from them. And I also enjoy those times when I first “discover” an established model, as was recently the case with Nensi B in “Uginta.”

But there’s something uniquely special about seeing a new girl in her first Metart gallery. And Tayla, the star of “Presenting,” is certainly special. She’s got a beautiful body, a warm, sweet on-camera personality, and she doesn’t hold back. Tayla seems completely at ease and comfortable even when the camera is in quite close, as it often is, capturing her most intimate anatomical details.

Now, the artist, Alex Iskan, has made some slightly curious choices with “Presenting.” The room is white — floors, walls, ceiling, furniture, the harp (yes, the harp) and even the chandelier is painted a shade of stark white. The floor to ceiling drapes and a sofa in the background, however, are in a vivid shade of teal blue. The color scheme is striking, to be sure.

But he’s dressed his beautiful young subject in scarlet tap pants and a black fabric and lace top trimmed in more red. Against the stark white with teal accents the outfit doesn’t harmonize with the setting. Indeed, as the costume gradually comes off, the set gains clarity and reaches its artistic pinnacle when Tayla is totally nude and the set design works as designed to flatter and enhance the model. There’s one shot that earned a chuckle: Tayla stands, holding those red shorts at mid-thigh, pretending to remove them. Her head is tilted to one side and the expression on her face seems to say, “Can I take these off now, please?”

Once she’s nude, as mentioned, Iskan takes care to capture everything Tayla has to offer. In #025 her breasts are beautifully presented. In #060 we find one of a generous assortment of intimate close-ups. In #098 Tayla strikes a stylized and explicit pose. Artist and model create a glamorous, stylish, pin-up in #108 with Tayla’s long hair spread out on the floor around her pretty face.

My two absolute favorites in “Presenting” are #082, a bold and explicit shot made all the more powerful by the spontaneous smile gracing Tayla’s lips, and #109 a beautiful, headshot that does justice to this newcomer’s beguiling blue eyes and her engaging, warm personality.
