Welcome to my Creative Tools ! - Artist orientated extensions, addons and presets for Adobe products.
Primarily designed with digital painters in mind, these tools aim to give traditional and concept artists access to workflow environments they're used to in other packages. Photoshop is often seen as being focused on photo manipulators, but it's also the main program for digital painters and needs some love there too I think.
Have a browse through and hopefully you'll find something that you like. :)

Chameleon Adaptive Palette
..A smart palette/swatch system that changes intelligently to keep you in the flow.
An entirely new panel based on the tech of the fabulously received Dynamic Swatches series. Chameleon Palette is a single panel that changes according to your needs. Feature rich and CPU light (it takes no resources while painting) it does everything the Dynamic Swatches did and more. All, again, in one incredibly flexible panel.
RH Hover Color Picker
When you're painting and you just want a color picker, not a spaceship control panel, have you ever wished there was one that was elegantly ARTIST-orientated? One that didn't require multiple clicks just to leave the panel that you obviously already chose ? One that then gets the hell out of your face ?
Meet RH Hover Color Picker !
RH Dynamic Palette
A clean, modern Color Blocking panel for Adobe Photoshop CC
Dynamic Palette is aimed squarely at Professional Colorists. With the input of many outstanding comic book Colorists from around the world, this extension facilitates custom ranges of user defined palettes with LightGel and Gradient features included.
It’s “that” magic brush! .. you know the one..
The brush that lays down color while blending seamlessly with the underlying color. Gradient painting smoothly, but with the crispness of edge where you need it. It's taking into account "that feel" more than anything, and to me, these brushes (specifically one of them) "feel" just about perfect for what I do. Maybe you too.
RH Color Approximator
Color Approximator is another Dynamic color generation system, with only one grid but many combinations. It's a two dimensional array based on your selected color - with each axis changing the underlying tones. You can set each axis to any combination of Brightness, Saturation, Hue, Temperature etc to whatever suits your worfklow best.
RH Dynamic Swatch Series
The Dynamic Swatch series are in many ways a forerunner to the above Chameleon Adaptive palette. Tremendously well received, and now on version 2.0.
Note: In many ways the Dynamic Swatch series has been surpassed now by Chameleon so you may want to check that one out first. Dynamic Swatches are however still available as many artists still enjoy them for their singular purpose :)
All Dynamic Swatches are fully compatible with Adobe Photoshop CC 2017 and above, utilizing and leveraging the very latest API.
All Extensions and tools are fully compatible with both Windows and Mac Platforms
