Congratulations everyone! We have successfully completed a whole year of Apophysis Challenges!!!
You all deserve praise for the hard work and ingenuity put forth over this past year. We've come a long way from the original challenges, and it appears we have a great road ahead of us. We have some incredible entries for this weeks judging.

For our special anniversary challenge, in addition the the normal feature given the winner, we'll have more prizes!!!
I'll be donating a one month premium subscription.
marthig will be giving both a feature to the winner and an animated stamp.
If anyone wishes to provide any other prizes, please note me and I'll add them to our list.

marthig has compiled a wonderful news article on the challenges.

6.) Parameters need to be posted in your entries comments, or in a comment underneath, not on the journal page.
7.) Have fun!!!
Challenge #52

To celebrate this week, we're going to have an "easier" challenge. This one was in my "suggestion box", but I sent it to myself, so I apologize if someone suggested this and I'm not giving credit where it is due.
Our challenge this week is entitled: "Heavy Weights".
Very simple rules, let's see what we can come up with.
  • All transforms must have a weight of "25" or higher
  • Minimum Transforms: 3
  • Final Transform: Allowed
  • Variations: Any

Have fun and enjoy this special week!
Deadline: Sunday, November 14th 11:59pm (EST)

I was running out of time, had problems with the renderer I added, will ask for help on that on another thread. Now my submission. I was not part of the "crowd" of Apo Challenges when they started, therefore I missed the first "rings2 and Julia combination" and HAD to try it ... so ... Here is my "Back to the Past" :hug:
