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 And don't forget to show me your results. I will be featuring them in my journal very soon
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
I found this tutorial ages ago and I still love it!
I'm not the best when it comes to making fractals, but I could spend hours just fiddling around with different variations and values for the final transform, because the results are almost always stunning. Thank you so much for this! C:
