Julia Uncovered: An Intermediate Guide to Apophysis

In the tutorial, I will demonstrate how to create this style of Julia with a technique I developed using the Julian variation. The Guide assumes the user already has a basic understanding of Apophysis.

Be sure to view the readme file for Terms of Use.

Included in ZIP file:
PDF file of the Guide
.flame parameters file for 4 Julians
TXT readme

Hey, I think you forgot a step :)
When you add the Triangle 3, try to make sure you take some of its weight. I used 0.001, or it will look too fuzzy and clouded.

How do I open PDF files? It just opens a blank internet explorer and asks me if i want to save. Over and over and over.

Wow, thanks for the detail in the instructions on this! I am a novice at this program (just found it last week) but have used various graphics programs for quite a while so hopefully I will catch on fast. I will tuck this one away for a little while as I learn the basics. Can't wait to dig into it!!! Thanks again

Was very glad to find this. Helped quite a bit with my stumbling through Apophysis. The number of variations is hard to get your head around without some guidance. Have to say I was rather proud of myself when I got this to show up!

thanks for the tut, it was well layed out and executed.

fence-post Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2006
Wonderful work! Can't wait to try this. I've been so reluctant to really get deeply involved with Apop because everything I produced seemed just like everyone else's. This tutorial looks to add a dimension that I couldn't hope to reach on my own. Thanks so much!

Trenton-Shuck Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Woo! yet another yummy tutorial on the beauty that is Julia in apophysis. Thank you so much and awesome job on this! :)

Beautifully done ! :clap:
It reminds me some of the mandala kind stuff I do. But that said, this one is really-really good looking , very unique and creative :clap:
more...more... :D
hoogamaphone Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2006
Thanks so much for this tutorial. I too have been trying to figure out how to get them to work, but I've only been using apophysis for a couple of months and am still getting the hang of it.

anyways, it was a huge help. Thanks again!
