Default Cool color scheme for AR10

I got in contact with a guy that does all kinds of custom finishes for guns. I want to have him do something with my AR. I have been messing around with photoshop to see what I want to do. I want to see if there is a general color scheme I can come up with for him and then work around what he can actually do. Let me know your ideas for a cool AR color scheme. I want something unique but that doesn't stand out.
This is the original


Here are a few of my quick photoshops.

I think the question you should be asking is what type of environment do you mainly shoot/live in and do you want it to blend in? My vote is for the desert hex camo.

It's hard because I'm constantly shifting between dry/desert and forest. I would say I live and shoot more in dryer areas.

I would find an old aluminum CAR stock and then paint it to match "Colt grey" or whatever they call the anodizing that Nodak Spud puts on their retro AR stuff.

That could give it a trials rifle look.
