Workin on a style NSFW

For my portfolio (again)

I know it's a nude, but nothing can be seen
What do you think?

Normally I dont like over-smoothed skin... but that retouching is great! As opposed to most ultra-smooth skin which looks like a face painting put on top of a photograph, yours looks like an intentional, otherworldly concept.

Can you give any workflow/technique tips?

To my untrained eye, it looks like you've gone too far in reducing her color. She was too red to start with, but now she looks very pale.

It's mostly dodge and burn (Face, body and Hair)

hair was retouched with a mask turned up the saturation and the magenta in the reds (Selective Color)

The body skintone was altered using selective color (- 70 magenta -80 black -15 Yellow aprox)

Also Hue/Saturation tu desaturate the reds a little.

The eyes were sharpened and altered with curves. and dodged/burned with a very small brush.

Yes, It was what I wanted... to make her pale, almost white, without desaturating the skin

Very nice, but the nose could do with some work. You've lightened the shadowed areas, particularly the nostrils, where even on pale skin, they should be dark.
