Color Unity.. Neat!

Totally new to me and incredibly impressive. Thanks for this, I'm going to try and see what I can do with it. ^_^
I'm only 5 years behind
I love this.

For the most part, it looks great! The yellow in the middle has a bit of a drastic ramp towards green, but aside from that, great job.

omg this is a work of art you deserve a literary award
Despite the mass load of information, I found this a lot easier to understand than the previous color blogs I've seen.

Thank you so much, this really helps!

Just wanted to say that this series is great and has way more effort put into it than the large majority of blogs.

EDIT: Little annoyed the others were apparently removed despite you fulfilling the character limit and going above and beyond what constitutes a blog with them. Hope that gets taken care of soon >.>
