Tutorial # 11 is the Julia Uncovered Tutorial by Claire Jones on DA

This tutorial has lots of really good information in it. It is in PDF form and is pretty long, but that is because she does alot of explaining, shows alot of screenshots and also shows you multiple techniques. I would love to see each of you try each of her techniques. I really enjoyed this one and think you will too.

Set your scale around 15 to start
Set your gamma to 5 to start

Claire will tell you in the tutorial some of the different variations you can use with this one

Here is your easy button for your convenience!

Have fun & good luck!

There is so much to learn from the tutorial and from one another!

OK, here is the real deal from Claire Jones’ tut, made without flame, just following the instructions. Of course, I had to do a little postwork to make it pretty in spite of the 17 minute render :o)))

Nothing could be more unclear to me than the beginning of this tutorial and the clearing out of an existing flame you are left with 2 transforms. After you set your variations on transform 2, the screenshot shows adding a new transform and then setting the variables. Maybe I’m just stupid but my first 3 steps look nothing like the screen shot. Just an orange ball and frustration!

Jim, well, I took a look at the first part of the tutorial, and since I utterly hate reading tutorials (lol!), I decided to just download the pack of eight flames that she provides as well, and start with one of those and majorly tweak the dickens out of it to see what I could come up with. I now am rendering a lovely yarn flower garden, and shall have it ready in a bit for posting here! Doesn’t look a thing like what I started with (her image), but I love it! So when all else fails……just pick a starter flame and tweak the everloving daylights out of it! Works for me……!
