After you have reviewed the entries: choose one that you think held true and exemplified the particular challenge best. Send me a note with that artists name and a link to their fractal. One vote per person, per challenge. Voting ends with the next challenge deadline.


1.) Follow the challenge guidelines.
2.) Entries must be posted here in this journal, before deadline.
3.) Only one entry per artist.
4.) Focus on Apophysis, keep postwork to a minimum (small adjustments/tweaks, watermarks, no frames)

6.) Entries must be new works for the specific challenge and not previously designed or uploaded.
7.) Usage of dc_image plugin is not allowed unless expressly called for in the specific challenge guidelines.
8.) Have fun!!!

Challenge #150

Way Back

This week's challenge is going to feature just a few variations. The trick here is that you must choose the direction you will take. Your fractal must include the linear variation, and only one of the three options to follow: bubble, hyperbolic, or eyefish. You have free reign over the transforms this week, but are limited to using only the linear variation and the other of your choice. Some amazing fractals have been created over the years with just two variations, and now I'm looking forward to seeing yours!

Quick recap:
  • Only two variations allowed.
  • Linear is required.
  • Choose one from: bubble, hyperbolic, eyefish.
  • No other restrictions on transforms or limits.
  • Final FX is allowed, within the limits laid out above.

As always, have fun and stay thirsty my friends!
Deadline: Monday, October 1 11:59pm (EST)

No wonder I was having a hard time! I thought it was two transforms and an optional final. :D Doubly challenged.
