    Katie Louise Rose - Love Yourself

    Nude art is a way of expressing yourself in one way, it’s like creating the look and then working with that to seeing the final results on pictures and it really helps your confidence as a woman, some people would think it’s for male attention and even though that’s mainly the audience for this kind of magazine it’s not why I do this personally.

    I just love creating different images.

    French Class - Art by Eric

    I'm Eric Vermeil, a french photographer living in the sunny french riviera. I've been into photography for many years, experienced different kinds and aspects of this art, landscape, macro, architecture, abstract and graphic, light painting, HDR and more.
    For a bit more than a year now, I'm focusing on the style that fits me better, the portrait. The human approach is very interesting, and I love to develop a trust relationship with a model, which is very important. 
    Trust and respect are the keys.

MIRKO CRO COP STOPS TWO OPPONENTS IN A SINGLE NIGHT TO WIN RIZIN OPEN WEIGHT GRAND PRIX

http://www.mmaweekly.com/

James Goyder

Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic stopped Amir Aliakbari in Tokyo to claim the Rizin Open Weight Grand Prix title on New Year’s Eve.

The 42-year-old has won several tournaments in MMA and kickboxing, but was visibly emotional after securing this silverware in what is the twilight of his fighting career.

Cro Cop registered a quickfire stoppage in his semifinal bout at the start of the night, finishing Baruto with a knee to the body from the clinch. That gave him an advantage over Aliakbari, who went the distance with Valentin Moldavsky before claiming a split decision.

At the start of the round, Aliakbari backed Crocop into a corner, but decided to disengage, possibly to avoid suffering a similar fate to Baruto. After an initial feeling out period, the Croatian connected with a left hook which dropped the former wrestling world champion.

Aliakbari bounced straight up only to eat another left hand and this time there was no recovering as Cro Cop swarmed him. After a disappointing UFC stint, Cro Cop has now won seven straight fights and established himself as arguably the most decorated heavyweight in the history of the sport.

With the win, Cro Cop’s record improves to 35-11-2-1 and he’s now won MMA tournaments with Pride and Rizin FF, as well as a K-1 Grand Prix in kickboxing. Aliakbari drops to 5-1, but having made his pro debut just over a year ago, the Iranian can feel very proud of his achievement in reaching the final.

In the co-main event, Kron Gracie put in an impressive performance to finish Tatsuya Kawajiri with a second-round submission. The Brazilian came close with an armbar attempt in the opening round, as he simply ran out of ring and found himself hanging out the ropes.

Gracie was getting the better of the stand-up exchanges, but sensibly decided to play to his strengths and pulled guard early in the second stanza. Kawajiri escaped and looked to score with a stomp, but the multiple-time BJJ champion caught his leg, took his back, and sank a rear-naked choke.

There were also wins for Hideo Tokoro, Rene Kubota, Andy Nguyen, Gabi Garcia, and Hayato Sakurai.
