Created in Apophysis 7x v14 following this tutorial in the Apophysis Tutorial Fun group. Rendered as a .png file, then blended with duplicate layers and a black background, color adjusted and supernova added in GIMP v2.6, then saved in .jpg format, finally scaled up in UF. Number 24 in a series of images generated with the instructions in this tutorial called Escher Stained Glass by dA’s SaTaNiA (Damien), using Julia3D (power 4) and sinusoidal in the final transform. Best if viewed larger.
