"Good" multicolor vs "bad" multicolor

I'm fairly confident that I understand most IBC color/pattern standards, but this one puzzles me still: Multis. Personally, I like multis, but I'm not clear on what constitutes a good multi that would do well in its class at shows. Could someone clarify, and possibly post pictures comparing a nice show quality multicolor with a sub-par multi?

THANK YOU for posting this! I've actually been wondering the same thing! I've been looking around with no luck this far.

subscribing as well, but i'll at least contribute to it:



okay so it's not a RELEVANT contribution, but it's something, right?

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

Okay, I've done some more snooping, and I think I've got it:
A good multi looks like a watercolor painting, with 3 or more colors blending into each other on the body and fins. A solid color with undesireable wash does not qualify.
Good multi:

Bad multis:

Alright, pics fixed themselves.
Anyone else have any pics/info on what constitutes a "good" multi? Or any tips on how to start a good multi line? How hard would it be to create decent multicolors from solid colored stock?
