Interesting to make, this one.
It's a close relative of Castles of the Magyc Kind, in that it uses similar principles (the curl_3d parallels etc), but looks... different... to what I had planned.

Thank you! It's actually thanks to you I have come this far - your tutes have been invaluable.

Always a pleasure :D flatter me plus you
did the hard work to learn :blowkiss:

Actually... can you help me? :shy:

I'm a bit limited in what I can learn by the fact I can't seem to get my plugins to... plug in (using folder name "Plugins", "Plugins_3d"...). In saying that, I have completely skipped round some areas people (gathering by what comes out of #Apophysis) seem to do before they learn anything else.
A sample of one of those areas was the type evidenced in your most recent DD (:clap:!) "Das Model". I have failed dramatically (so far, at least) in finding a tutorial for curl_3d or the more interesting linears - have I missed one in your gallery? Do you know of a good one? Or several?
Also, does the cheat I learned from one of ^Platinus's workshops (scale up, zoom out) cause grain?
I'm trying to restrain myself... :pout:

Hahahahahaha..I love the expression plugins-to plug-in :lmao:
Ok, no jokes - well, not all plugins work, which is bad ...but happens,
plus some may conflict with others that happens too :(
Good news is, that can be taken care of, unfortunately takes time
you gotta ad one plugin after another, and open apo to see if it works :nod:
I would remove all the plugins you got and then ad them in small groups :nod:
Plus, your comp (as every other one) has a plugin limit (that depends on RAM)
Mine goes to about 115 plugins per folder :nod:

Curl? curl3D ? usually I use it in combination with sphericals or mobius ..hmmm
tutorials ? not sure I have seen one, but have you checked #Fractal-Resources
there is a big section of apo tutos, scripts, params and anything else you need
ouuu yes plugins as well :nod:
The best linear tutos or flames are by `ClaireJones and :devneuchrauchen:
Everything else is playing with things - you gotta experiment :nod: and don't be scared
to 'screw-up' things (you can always undo or save diff flame stages)
A fantastic Crystal Palace !:wow::clap::clap::clap:
