    I like it, the only thing is the leg tips are gray it appears causing it to blend into the skin. I know that has to be very tough to achieve but I still like the effect.

    I think selective coloring would look good on number 2. Not that it doesn't work on number one, just saying...

    I like it, definitely one of those times when it's appropriate to use selective colouring, rather than the usual selectively colour something for the sake it type.

    very cool. check out those super thin antennae (whiskers?). Not to forget the little hairs on the boys hand.

    I like the selective color here, cause it's not super saturated, and there's enough contrast in the b&w areas to keep the green in check.

    Thank you everyone :D I might have ago at selective colour on the other one too.
    Normally I dont like selective colour as it seems a bit over used and cliched alot of the time. but I do think this was one of the instances where I quite likes it.

    I love the first one. It helps me understand what a good selective coloring choice is. I recently had my own debacle of a go at it...lol.
