Featured 12/1/12 in Apophysis Tutorial Fun

The textures and colors that emerged in this abstract fractal reminded me of the skin of the land turtles, lizards and snakes I used to catch and study as a child, hence the title.

Created primarily in Apophysis 7×15b as an abstract fractal based on the Sahar Tutorial by Epogh on DA from Forum #45 in Apophysis Tutorial Fun group. Added Tx3 with plugin Curl3D, and Whorl (x3y4) & Bubble3D plugins in Fx. Gradient flare and partial image replications added in GIMP v2.8. Best if viewed larger.



Celebrating the milestones of 630,000 Views (7/10/14), 1100 Features (4/26/14) and prizes in the 2012 – 2014 CHANL Scientific Art Competitions. A Featured Member of Apophysis Tutorial Fun Group, Bryce and Beyond, Brain Science, Brain Arts and Artists Universe groups, and active in over 50 other RB groups as a digital/fractal artist using Apophysis, Fractal Science Kit, Ultra Fractal, GIMP and Mandelbulb3D.
