Now that I have you attention, I wanted to try something here. I have recently been trying out some of the tutorials that are out there for Apophysis and I have been having a blast! I found that I was having more fun than usual because I have been chatting with Carolyn about the tutorials and we decided to pick the Apophysis Bloom Tutorial and we both were playing with it at the same time, sharing a few tips and then sharing what we created.
So, my plan is…. that I am going to post a journal with a tutorial to try, and I would love for anyone who plays with Apophysis to play along and then post your piece. If you have any tips or tricks you would like to share, by all means go for it. If you don’t play with Apophysis yet, well dive right in, we would love you to try it too! I will probably post a new one once every few weeks… to give people a chance to try the stuff out. Afterall, we do have lives outside of the bubble!
I am going to post the link, and it will take you to deviantart.com, cause that is where they all are. You can download them and work them from your own computer or right from the site itself. If you don’t have the plug ins needed for any of the tutorials, you can get them there too. I wish I would have gotten this idea before the blooms! lol But in either case, I think I have a nice one to start with. :) If you like this idea, play along, fave it, share it. The more the merrier!
Ok, enough chit chat. This first tutorial is the Splits Elliptic by our good friend Fiery-Fire and SaTaNiA
I was dying to try this out and I am having so much fun with it. I know some of you more seasoned fractal artists already have done this, so if you don’t want to create new, by all means show us what you created with it!
One small tip… I have noticed with these tutorials that you really don’t see what you are creating for the first several steps. If you adjust your gamma to 5 and change your scale to like 10-15, and maybe change the gradient as well, you can see more of what you are doing. Before I did that, I didn’t see ANYTHING after the first 4 steps. Good luck!
