Contour Painting (D&B technique) with a Pinup Model Example
Ok, so I finally got off my lazy butt to put together a tutorial on an approach I've been calling Contour Painting.

It's basically a non-destructive Dodge & Burn technique using overlay layers, but with an emphasis on flowing with the contours of a subject in a photo.

I use a great pinup photo as an example in the tutorial to really allow me to exaggerate what is going on, but it can be used in just about any image to some degree. I'd be interested in hearing some feedback!
