very appropriately titled due to the fact that it's the color of burgundy and that you look like you made this while you were drunk off the wine by the same name. why this wasn't a DD is beyond me but it still gets my "Thumbz Up Award".
i do have a question after looking in your gallery for inspiration: how do you get the hearts to look like that? you have some parameters i can borrow? we can swap some stuff, i got a few heart fractals i had already uploaded that are old and new ones i made. i can tell on a few of yours that you used hyperbolic on them.
and it's not a heart one yet. was this a variation of that tutorial that guy does of the fractal storm and other fractal tuts like "Celtic Knots" and "Vesper"? i've experimented with that tut 1nce and never did again. i didn't hate it, just hadn't messed with Apophysis much after that. now i'm getting back into it after seeing waaaaaay too many good ones, and that includes animation (the main drive behind me working with it to begin with besides that it's so freakin' awesome!). if it is then i already know what steps to take, just reread the tut and play with whatever variations he has in there. if this is from a tutorial i would like that too, i ALWAYS like to follow tutorials, or at least the ones i find interesting.
ok enough rambling--the links:
[link] (the effects are cool in this one, really feeling it)
[link] (another one with fluid effects. was this followed using that oil painting effect tutorial? never followed it because i think you needed cross and i didn't have that plugin for the longest. now i do so no excuses. )
[link] (LOVE the tribal effect on this one. total hot rod bodypaint freshness right chea )
[link] (this would be the perfect image for Valentine's Day)
[link] (very Alice In Wonderlandish, totally get this Queen of Hearts vybe everytime i see it. why this never became a DD is beyond me)
[link] (i'm beginning to get the impression that some or ALL of these is from the same parameters. if so that is awesome! all of these from 1 source)
[link] (THE COOLEST in your Gallery of Hearts, which i'm shocked you haven't done yet--create a separate folder for them. 1nce again it boggles my mind that this wasn't a DD).
i think that'll be all for now, sorry. i felt like i was going overboard with those. ok now to work on another flower fractal.
