Xenophilia Tutorial by alien-dreams Xenophilia Tutorial by alien-dreams
This is a tutorial for Apophysis 7x, or any version of Apophysis with 3D capabilities, and is intended for those with a good basic knowledge of the program. The download includes a 30 page tutorial, a flame pack and a gradient pack, and was created by the amazing ~TsukinoHikari20 as one of my prizes for the Back to Fractal Class contest. She did a brilliant job converting my confusing mess into an detailed, easy to follow tutorial, so please visit her gallery and give her lots of attention!
This tutorial teaches you how I made the fractal Xenophilia [link] but it's intended as a learning resource and basis for your own experimentation only. Please don't post fractals which are identical or very similar to my own, and don't copy my original gradient as there are many others in the pack.
Now go forth and create some beautiful, unique fractals :dance: And don't forget to show me your results. I will be featuring them in my journal very soon :D

Please note: I did not invent the spherical 3D style. It has been done before. I'm just showing you how I made one specific fractal. The spherical 3D plugin was created by *TyrantWave and you can download it here [link]

Another note: Please ignore any instructions related to the 'post process' tab if your version of apo doesn't have this feature. The tutorial will work perfectly well without it. Also, if you are unsure about the instruction 'hit calculate color values' please read =Frankief's helpful comment :)

This is one of the clearest tutorials out there. Impressive, considering the relative complexity of the fractal. Thanks so much.
