For a model with such striking natural gifts, it is somewhat ironic that her most noticeable feature is her artificially crimson-tinted hair. The far-from-natural hue of Ariel A.’s luxurious mane is undeniably eye-catching, but I suspect it is also somewhat polarizing. I know that there is a large and vocal group of MetArt members who eschew such blatant cosmetic manipulation and who prefer a more natural look. Others don’t object and can embrace the model and whatever personal choices she has made with regard to her appearance and presentation. I consider myself to be at the more tolerant extreme of the natural group — and I do like Ariel A. (see here and here).
However. “Pergula” has given me pause. I’m beginning to think that the dye-job is somewhat limiting. It may be Ariel’s signature, her trademark, but I think it narrows her appeal somewhat. The good news is that she could change the color of her hair at any time — and that’s not a luxury tattooed MetArt models, to cite another polarizing “enhancement,” enjoy.
Here, and in the previous sets I mention above, the shocking shade of the model’s hair seems to infuse the entire set with a subtle reddish tint. In “Pergula” this is amplified by the color of the set and furnishings, and by the overcast sky and natural light Luca Helios employs. I don’t know if it is avoidable, or if some level of color correction would minimize the effect, but it is noticeable.
Color me somewhat disappointed overall, but there are highlights to be found in this MetArt erotic photo gallery. Among my favorites: #068 and #069, the graceful, athletic (and erotic) presentation of her body in a shoulder bridge stance. And the trio of images — 078, 079, and 080 — that showcase Ariel’s refined facial features (and, yes, her hair) in dramatic profile.
