Re: armpit from hell

You did a good job with the armpit, although there's contrast in the line that's parallel to the arm, overall skin retouch is good but you neglected the arm and above the armpit you retouched, it looks "blotchy".
Also there's a line in the shadow on one of the shoulders (the shadow that the head is making) that my eye draws to either darken the line or brighten the shadow. You could also clone out the edge of the table since you can still see it a little bit

Re: armpit from hell

I think there are a number of issues here. First, there's the idea of simplifying the armpit to eliminate a lot of the unattractive extra folds. Then there's the idea of needing to create shading that's believable for what is there when your done simplifying the armpit. And as long as we're working on this we should try to make the angles of connection as attractive as possible. And then ther's that back of the bra creeping back into the frame and causing some distracting bulging. So maybe something like this. A little rough, but you get the idea.

hahahah that's what I thought. You should keep the armpit, crop it out to just the armpit and make a poster that says, 'armpit or vagina'. You'll get tons of hits if you flickr or use deviant. Trust me.
