A dodge and burn contouring

This was primarily a practice attempt at contouring with dodge and burn. I also did my skin smoothing with dodge and burn, but I'm not really looking for critique there, because I did a rush job. I know how to do it well, I just didn't want to spend all the time required to make her perfect.

What I am looking for critique on is the shirt, the shading on the face, the alpha mask, or any areas that really stand out for you.

I accidently saved over the larger file I had created, so sorry about that. I guess it hurts me more than you

Thanks again!

Re: A dodge and burn contouring

Interesting approach Mike.

Shirt: I prefer a few wrinkles along the shoulders. The stretch marks on the front still looks bothersome.

Face shading: Shading looks good to me. Color on camera left still a bit red.

Mask: A bit more refining around the hair. One little mark on camera left arm, top edge.

Re: A dodge and burn contouring

Thanks very much. I completely agree about the shirt - I won't make the same mistake again. I somehow forgot to color balance this picture, you've got a good eye. Critique me anytime (^_^)/
