It was a long time since i posted anything on deviantart. If I have any watchers left I would like to ask for your opinion and suggestions on a color wheel Photoshop extension I have been working on the last couple of months. I created it because I felt it was needed for myself to make it easier to pick colors for digital painting.

Kallewheel 1 by K-Bladin   Directions by K-Bladin

Edit:
The extension is now available on the Adobe Add-ons website: creative.adobe.com/addons/prod…
and it is completely free!

There is more information on it here  . I'm using it for all my digital paintings and it makes things a lot easier for me and I hope it would for other people too. I also haven't added any direct information on how I use it but this link might give you an idea of its advantages compared to Photoshops default color picker.
I have put up a new website, both for my artwork and for tutorials and tools to help digital artists in their work. Please visit and tell me what you think and don't forget to visit the "Artist tools" section!


More to come!
I got interviewed for the site "DarK". Visit to get an overview of how I think and work: darkorg.altervista.org/k-bladi…
All questions are welcome!
I have been working with illustrations for a children's book on history education for a while now and the project for my part is finally finished.  I will be posting my favorite illustrations from the project which consists of 12 chapters that range from old Mesopotamia to modern history. The book will be out in january and is published by a Finnish publisher called Schildts och Söderströms. The name of the book is Tidspiraten (The time pirate).
Still working on illustrating a book which hopefully will be done later this year. The project took me so much longer than I expected and still it's just over halfway done illustration-wise. Right now I'm working as much as possible tho, and hopefully it will go a bit faster when I'm not in the middle of a school term.
Just to let people, who are interested, know what I'm doing..

dunked.com seems to be a cool new place to showcase your artwork. The site havn't started yet but it looks promising. Plus you can win an Adobe CS6 package.
I have recorded a couple of videos of drawings that are now up on youtube. Currently there are only some warm up figure sketches using the site www.posemaniacs.com but there will be more interesting stuff later on. So if you have a youtube account, stop by and say hello.

Hello people!
In case someone was wondering i thought i'd let you know why I'm not as active on deviant Art as before:

1. I'm studying (master engineering, not art) full time.
2. I'm working with freelance illustration as well as commissions.
3. I'm mostly working on art fundamentals when I get time for my own art nowadays. These are things I prefer not to post here.

This does not mean I won't upload more stuff.
I still make personal illustrations and sketches but not quite as often as before.
I'm still checking deviant Art almost every day.
Take a look at my new animated 2d short and tell me what you think of it.
