Created in Apophysis 7×15 as a Pong tweak from parameters kindly shared by Wolfepaw (Peggi) altered from the original mainly by adding a final transform of Julian related to the current tutorial in Apophysis Tutorial Fun group.

It is always a great joy to “discover” an animal or natural object that emerges during the fractal exploration stage, and this was a perfect example.

    This is fabulous, David!! Very nice tweak!! And I see the hippos!!! How wonderful!

  • Normally I would tweak a lot more so that nothing recognizable from the original remains, but I’m sure you can understand that when this image popped up I had to stop :o))) If I get nothing else out of this pong, this image has definitely made me “a happy hippo”…

  • Thanks so much, Jacqui, it was a great and welcome surprise to have this amazing image appear from tweaking Peggi’s previous image in my first ever Pong session…probably beginner’s luck :o)))
