Default Alpha mapping problem.

Got bored and started playing with the files again, but noticed I was either doing something wrong or I've completely forgotten how to do alpha mapping >.>

I'll use an almost completely unedited copy as an example of how much I suck right now and need help.(maybe I'm color blind when it comes to greys lol...I can't tell the difference )

Picture 1 - The face, course.

Picture 2 - Alpha map. I got annoyed and just colored a huge blob on the side of what's probably now a hole in a part of the hair I don't want but can't find.

Picture 3 - The result, there's some wierd shit in my hair <.<; And it's about as hard to get out as gum right now.


Can anyone point out where that crap is on the original face so I can black it out, or even better, tell me how you figure out what's junk and what's shadow?

As a guess, I would say the alpha mapping might not be a true black. It looks like part of it might be a lighter black or a very dark green (This happens with my boss once in a while when they look at colors, they can't tell Dark Green from Black).
