Hsv

Hsv (also known as Hsb) is similar to Hsl. They're both based on cylindrical geometries, but Hsv is based on a "Hexacone" model while Hsl is based on a "Double Hexacone" model. Read more about the differences on wikipedia.

Cmy

Cmy is frequenty associated with color printing, and it's determined by the relation of colors cyan, magenta and yellow. Unlike Rgb, cmy is subtractive, meaning that higher values are associated with darker colors rather than light.
