I admit it, I do click on vulva closeups too.
But a whole page with pretty much nothing else? Boring. Very very boring. 5 pages of her vulva on display in the most direct way possible? I am so fucking tired.
The first two pages were good or at least ok. The rest is just another pretty girl spreading her legs as far as possible for the gynocological examination fetishists. No need for a face or a name. Just rubber stamp it was 'vulva number XYZ' and be done.
SCAR -- SCHMAR !!!
The girl is damned gorgeous -- love her or leave her little lambs!
Do you say the same with the scar?
id kiss and lick her scar
Uh , what scar ? I see the mole ... but not a scar yet .. Could you please Identify which photo and the area that the elusive scar is at .
It's pretty artfully hidden in this set. You can see it to the right of her navel in images 3 and 21 here. It's big and bold in her previous set, Kallu -- see image 4...
If this bullshit continues about her scar, we're likely to lose Sapphira...but then I guess that's what your intention is, huh doug...
Hi to everybody..
i just wanna explain why Sapphira in this set have the scar retouched.
I agree with all the comments that she is better and more natural with scar not deleted.
But this is one set from my first of her and at the begin, i was thinking that she was better with scare retouched...well i was totally in wrong...so now ...if i'm not retouching nothing of her...and ...sorry also for the lipstick..i agree to that is too red..so if in future you will see..others sets of her without scar..just mean was set of few time ago.
thanks a lot to everybody for the comments....enjoy the fabulous METART
Mr. Helios ---
If you consider this art -- then it is YOUR art --
Do not apologize -- it is a sign of weakness.
WE have nothing to do with YOUR art. Did Van Gogh apologize?
Maybe to his ear.
The lipstick is not too bright for me. The earrings are fine. Either can provide color and interest to draw attention to our model. They just did not go well together.
Please don't apologize. You have offered us plenty of great imagery. If I don' t always like every photo, I appreciate how you push artistic boundaries in a way that many do not -it would be a great loss to stop.
I do ask for more kindness to elbows, knees, and toes.
Hi Luca, I want to agree with the other members about the scar. I feel it is part of her and does not look bad at all. I am glad you agree with us too.
But I do not agree about the makeup. The fact is, some women like to wear visible makeup sometimes. It helps them feel beautiful and glamorous, and I don't think it is a bad thing every once in a while.
I prefer women who don't feel they NEED to wear makeup all the time ~ but seeing a woman made up glamorously from time to time can be a real treat.
Thank you for explaining this to us, Mr. Helios. You have nothing to be sorry for - Sapphira is a fabulous woman and I enjoy seeing her every time she appears. I do prefer to see un-retouched photos, but I understand what you said and am glad to hear that you do not do this anymore. You have my respect for your fine contributions here.
Please feel free to visit us again in the comments. Many of your fellow photogs write here regularly and many of us enjoy their perspective.
Promise i will Kilroy..
I agree with Kilroy, it is a real bonus to hear from the photographers. Welcome to the comments forum, Luca, and I hope you'll want to join us here again in the future!
Just answering his question, pointing to published images... :-)
I know you were doug. I didn't mean to direct that solely at you. I just got irritated by the mindless chatter about her scar.
Obssession ALWAYS breeds mindless chatter -- and quite a lot of it, ir would appear.
Stop obsessing about me, Dread :-))))
I don't see it as being mindless, though. To me the to-be-or-not-to-be of the scar is a fundamental question for this site. Do you reveal or obscure reality? Reality in as much as is reasonably possible to reveal.
"Photoshopping" reality -- whether you choose to do it or not, and for what reason -- that is the question. As big as Sapphira's scar :-)
Of course reality less large than that scar is photoshopped too -- the question is why?
And that gives rise to a lot of chatter.
Of course it's not just visual reality that is obscured/denied here... :-)
...to the blind :-)
Whoot , whoot .... I finally found Anna AJ on another site , and she done went an stuck a broom have in her little cookie ... :)
Perhaps a reason to prefer this site -Artwork.
First who gives a fuck about a scare? Maybe Scareface(movie)!
This women is poety in motion.
I recieved a personal email from the photograper Luca Helios on how he is able to shoot this incredible women. That was dripping with sexuality and how he made her so comfortable. Most women, even gorgeous have problems of self-image(body).
His responce is she very kind, fliratious, funnny and
she loves the camera. Shit thats what I am looking for.
I live in the states and not one has been in Met.
Maybe I am wrong. I can see why. I was going to Russia but with the conflict. I going to Prague this summer. If you are looking for flaws look in the mirror! :) If you want perfection get a real doll for $6000.
A properly spelled scar does not detract from our model.
Well, it is kind of a scarey scar! :-)))
I don't think it is scarey. It looks like it might be a burn. It definitely isn't from a bullet or knife wound, that might be scarey to some. At any rate, it is not repulsive to me. She is such a beautiful woman, and it is a unique part of her. I do not agree with covering it up (you know my position on photoshopping), and Luca Helios has explained below along with his regret in doing retouching in earlier sets.
Adds character :-)
The more fine detail the better too.
"Scarey"??? What are you...10yrs old!?
See MarksViper's comment.
Sorry for the spelling errors douche bag.
I have a Viper and 10th Anniversary Jeep Rubicon loaded so fuck off.
Mark 14 yrs old
You sound like it! :-))
I'm very curious about the status of DG's scheme to get a session with Sapphira...
I would be very interested in that myself.
What started out as promisingly cute and enticing quickly went downhill. Creativity was lost with the clothes.
110 - half a haunch with focus that is not artistic but simply bad.
The color mismatch of lipstick an heartsy hoop earrings contributes to a sense of the artificial.
The jean shorts and halter looking bra do some well deserved justice to our model in the beginning.
Brunettes are the bomb, if she's phony, she can come and deceive me anytime she wants.....gotta love the closeups....
Sapphira is a fabulous beauty, and Mr. Helios chooses the best backgrounds for her.I agree with hipshot here, why photoshop her stomach when we(Her adoring fans)already knows she has a large scar there?It's kinda like Ariel piper Fawn's birthmark on the inside of her left thigh. We all know she has it,it doesn't look bad, but sometimes it's there, and sometimes not. Speaking of APF, she has put out a fabulous movie of Sappirea with her friend Andrej Lupin (Czech girls gotta stick together) for SexArt.Absolutely a 10++++
The set was not there for me. It started out interesting with the shorts and on the counter then it began to lose me steadily. I find the more beautiful the model the more critical I become of the quality of the set. I think that it is because I look so forward when I see certain models' names because when they appear you automatically think that it will be a great and exciting set. Then top it off you add Luca Helios name to the set, it adds a little more hope it will be outstanding. The set was a little less than "OK" for me. Still love Sapphira, I agree with the make-up and the scar comments. I am sad for her that the scar is part of her, but it is just that, part of her. It does not take away her beauty, leave her perfect body alone.
Good point about the high expectations (or standards) some models arouse. I think Sapphira and others get cut a lot of slack, mediocre sets of theirs being automatically applauded, but I can think of a couple of models where the opposite seems to occur. They are so outstanding that their sets often let people down. They want more than they are getting, and so give lower scores...
Pairing the relative roughness of denim with the softness of female skin has always appealed me, so this is a particularly nice set. What I would wish from all the MetArt photographers are a few pictures per set that have the model flat-footed. That way, it's easier to imagine that the model is your girlfriend, the set location is your own residence, and the two of you are hanging out on a lazy Saturday morning before "things" sort of...you know...happen. :-) Certainly I understand and appreciate the esthetics of having the model en-pointe, but must all the standing poses be that way? A few pictures of a flat-footed model makes her seem more real and accessible, and I think there's something appealing about that.
All part of being more real. I agree. Imagine street shots and candids where the girl just remembers in time to get up on her toes! :-)))
Thank god Kristel forgot... :-)))
Sapphira, you are a lovely delight for the eyes, as always. I have a feeling some members are going to complain about the makeup, but I like it every once in awhile. As Rylsky says, sometimes women want to look glamorous and makeup helps them feel that way.
Personally, I feel that a pair of sexy high heels would have gone well with this look, but I'm not complaining, this is my favorite of Sapphira's last several sets.
Sapphira in denim shorts and a halter top. PERFECT but why Photoshop the scar? After all these sets it seems silly. Everyone has already commented that it is a part of her and doesn't effect her appeal in any way. Oh well scar or no scar she is one of the hottest women on Metart and I love every chance to see her again but I regret Luca's decision to gild the lily.
It's there in a few shots, as if he was hoping to please everyone... :-)
In order to know this, you would have to look at every picture of the set... Who's really the phony here doug?? ;o)
You're right -- I didn't look at every picture.*
But still it is there in a few -- just use your eyes (and high resolution.)
*I can only take so much of Sapphira! :-)
The Queen of Phony :-)
From the King of Phurry ;o)
Harsh words, Doug!
Hey, at least I call her the queen of something! :-)))
Let's see... The Queen of Phoniecia....? :-)))
I will give him credit for better skin detail overall.
I just get the feeling with her when the smile comes off it's a totally different story.
In my very very humble opinion, of course! :-)
Taking the scar out may be an aesthetic move, but it doesn't help their case for genuineness...
Unless they're saying we're honest photoshoppers! :-))
Dude, you really can't judge a person's personality JUST from pictures! I don't think we have any way at all ~ other than what the photographers tell us ~ what the models here are like as people when they're not in front of the camera.
And you have to remember that, whatever life and the world are for us guys, it's totally different for women. My sister is a totally level headed, pragmatic, intelligent woman who is very beautiful, but she grew up convinced that she was ugly. Women have it very hard and this society is geared to make them feel constantly insecure about their looks. I have met maybe 3 or 4 women in my life who were not concerned about their looks and not convinced that they were ugly. So sometimes, when a woman looks hostile or shut off, it's because she is feeling bad about herself ~ and not the men with whom she's interacting.
Remember, this is a fantasy site -- we have almost nothing but photos, and the thoughts and feelings they arouse in us -- to go on. Obviously I let mine have free reign.
I'd like to be shown otherwise about Sapphira. Until I am, that's just what I think, suspect, project, etc. Sense. From the limited info I have...
Granted, it is very incomplete :-)
Yep, I have a close sister who has had similar issues, and she has 3 girls, grown women, now, who deal with self-image problems best they can as we all do.
Reminds me of the Tao te Ching: "Seeing the small is insight."
You get little flashes of the truth before it is obscured again... :-)
This was a lame play on words....thanks for ignoring it lol
As I've said before -- she can take it. She's got an army of undying support, like several others here -- Divina, Lily come to mind. It doesn't matter how bad their set is -- it's always rated high.
These women just charm the pants off certain guys -- others aren't as susceptible.
LOL I don't think "certain guys" are here with their pants ON doug...lmao! And without checking first, I don't think you're right about ALL the sets of those popular models being rated high ALL the time... I'm not the best example to look at, but Sapphira's last set got a 3 from me... I like all these girls, but if the "artist" OR the model blow a set, I'm NOT giving it a "high" rating. But I'm sure you're correct otherwise, at least to a degree...;o)
Divina in particular...she has guys wrapped around her photoshopped fingers :-)
The set ratings should be distinct from what you think about the model overall, but some guys don't seem to make that distinction.
I refrained from rating this set, btw. On occasion I will lash out with a low score especially when body hair is painted over (for all the good it does... :-)
There are other models who also seem to get carte blanche, but I don't wanna make anybody else mad at this point :-)))
Gorgeous, Sapphira is fantastic, a plethora of majestic spreads here ad some awesome close-ups, encore!.
