Featured 8/3/11 in Apophysis Tutorial Fun

Created for the Volume 17 – Xaos Bubbles tutorial by Nightmares06 (Heather Gerety) in the Apophysis Tutorial Fun group. Primary image generated in Apophysis v7x15 with black background and slight color adjustment added in GIMP, with final render in UF 5.04. Best if viewed larger.

This version is actually far closer to the pure Apo work from the tutorial that was then modified to create this previously posted image:

    Very nice David . . .

  • Thanks on this one as well, Hugh…I had the title Sword and Shield at first, but this video inspired me to switch it around, though I had never heard of her before today :o)))
