Hi Jason, thank you :)

Fractal art is very complex, there are so many different styles, so I can't exactly give you one answer how to make similar fractals like me because many of them are done in different styles. I made a list of useful tutorials for fractal art newbies, you might want to check it out:

Project Educate Fractal Week - Apophysis TutorialsAs you might have noticed, this week of Project Educate is dedicated to fractals.
In this news article, I would like to present tutorials for Apophysis and show you examples of fractals made with these resources.
I hope that this way I'll bring your attention to resources you've never tried to work with or (in case you are already familiar with these) show you a new possibilities of what can be created according to that particular tutorial.
There is not enough space to feature all the wonderful tutorials and I am forced to make a selection of just several of them. The key for selection is me being already familiar with them, thus recommending to you some of the tutorials that helped me a lot.
Here we go:

I also have one tutorial for my own style here, but I wouldn't recommend it if you are new to Apophysis. If you've spend some time with Apophysis already, you can check it out here:

Underwater - Apophysis Fractal Tutorial by lucid-light

Most of my fractals made in last 2 years were made based on the style from my tutorial, so if you like my recent style, the tutorial will help you to create fractals similar to mine :)

totally get that its a deep complex process and there isn't a "make cool fractal like Lucid" button :)
Thanks so much for the tutorials, i'll dive in.  I'm somewhere between beginner and intermediate w/ Apophysis, but longtime artist.   Thanks so much!!
