how to make selection on certain part of shape in adobe illustrator?


I'm new to illustrator. I just want to ask how and what is the best way to make selection of certain part of shape in illustrator. Currently i'm just using pen tool and it's quite messy. In photoshop we can use the quick selection tool. Is there similar tool like that?

For example i can easily make selection of the bear's head without his body and background to resize it accordingly enter image description here

I'am afraid you cannot perform the action you want because selection in Vector Editors deals with Objects and Vectors, not with Pixels.

I suggest you using Photoshop or other raster based editor.

Remember that Terminology about "shapes" means vector based objects, and not raster based. Illustrator deals with picture as a square window objects and there is nothing to do about that.
