    The b&w one looks really cool, but please try to do a neater job in photoshop. The closer you get it the better it's gunna look. Try zooming up super close and doing it by the pixel if you have to.

    i did select by the pixel, i used magic wand, you can't get any more selective than that, it chooses the pixels.

    It chooses sections by their color. The ladybug fades around the edges so it's darker, but it's still the ladybug and wand tool won't pick it up. It won't because it didn't.

    Have 2 PS documents open, one b&w and one color. On the color one, erase everything around the ladybug getting closer and closer each time. Then zoom way in with eraser and get really close up on the edges of the ladybug. Now take this ladybug and put it in a new layer on the b&w one right where it should be. Better?

    Great job! When I saw the colour version I was a bit scared the leaves would all blend into each other.. but you pulled it off really well. What if you coloured in the leaf as well??? just another idea.

    I really like the full colour version. Don't really care for the selective colour sample.

    hey I like it a lot but forgive me, I'm a huge photoshop guy. This is what i'm talking about...this is what it will look like. Check out around the edges of the ladybug, it makes it a lot nicer.
