coloring

Hey guys! I just had some questions...I've been making icons for a while, and one of my favorite styles to use is selective coloring, and there's a s.c. pattern that I use on almost all of my icons. It makes them look pretty, but the problem is that they usually end up all looking the same, like:

The reason I use this coloring a lot is because it works on almost any type of icon--but I'm kind of tired of it now. XD Does anybody know of any good selective coloring tutorials that work with a lot of different types of pictures or any other really nice effects?

Thanks in advance ♥
