Volume 52-Foci Tutorial
This tutorial is Foci Tutorial by Juggalo5 on DA

Tutorial Tips:
Set your scale around 25 to start

Juggalo5 (David) has written a very easy to understand tutorial here. After the last tut, this should be gravy! You will have to mess with it at the end to get multiple colors or you can have Apo calculate the colors for you. I case you don’t know: Click Flame and choose Calculate Colors on the main program. Trying different variations on xform 2 and or creating a final xform is the way to go with this one!

Plugins Needed: No special plugins are needed.

Here is your easy button for your convenience!

Have fun & good luck!

Foci Squares

David, I like your crystal image! Very nice! I did something other than a flower here. :-)
Pam…your Warped image is so cool! Love the colors and form to it! :-)

To get the colors a bit more defined in my Foci Squares, I increased the weight of TX1 to 8 and adjusted the XAOS settings on TX2 to 0 0 1 0. Just wanted to share that! :-)

Excellent work, everybody!! I can see the difficulty of the last one is paying dividends with extra creativity and exploration in this one. I have already varied the xaos settings on some of mine from as high as 77 to as low as 0.004 (plus a lot of 0 settings) to get some very interesting results. :o)))

Gorgeous work on this lovely new tutorial (thanks James!).

Thanks to everyone for the tips, too. I haven’t played with xaos on this yet, maybe on the next one. :)
