Loop selection - I do some customer paintovers at work - to show people what a commercial property might look with different paint colors. A lot of the properties have trees and sometimes the difference in the image between the tree branches and the color behind it makes selecting branches troublesome. I use several tricks to deal with these but I was thinking that a 'loop selection tool' that you could drag to quickly select a closed loop ie both sides of the branches, closed on bottom and a terminus shape (ie 1 point or two, bud, round etc) and possibly the segments between points as curved or straight, the width you could quickly do a gross selection of branches, hair or similar shapes - and also use it in other creative ways say to draw trees or other shapes by dragging out a selection and filling. Here is a quick mockup

Clarification; picking each branch is difficult so a tool that could approximate a branch with some settings for width, curve, node shapes or whatever and that you could drag out multiple branches before creating the selection is what I mean. I guess this could also be a 'loop pen' tool.
