An abstract fractal image created primarily in Apophysis 7×15b based on the tutorial Volume 65 – Apophysis 3D Effect Tutorial by mfcreative on DA in Apophysis Tutorial Fun group. Added Fx with bubble, postmirror x and Julian2 plugins. Color adjustments and background added in GIMP v2.8. Best if viewed larger.
With a dark background to this Apo image, only the golden outlines in the center were visible, but shifting to a light background for the outer areas revealed additional texture that was always there, but could not be seen. The video below describes a related, and enlightening, life lesson.
