"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.

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?
