Lugged builders: Need help choosing a color scheme?

Hello all,
I'm a poor engineering student with plans to start framebuilding (recreationally) after I graduate. My classes were cancelled this morning, so I decided to play around in Solidworks and model a lugged frame. I made some Columbus SL tubes and generic lugs, rendered a couple images, and decided this could be a useful tool to help people decide on a color scheme--and it's a way for me to give back to the forum for all I've learned here. I'll be taking requests, by PM or email...these only take a minute or so, so as long as I'm at my computer I can go through them pretty quickly. Here are some that I've rendered so far:

I can do virtually any color, a few textures, and finishes ranging from completely matte to very glossy.

Looks great. I think this is a very useful tool. How about seeing a grass green pearl w/ yellow head tube?
