Third Eye by zy0rg Third Eye by zy0rg
A tribute to Tool. Or rather to their artwork by Alex Grey. Been a fan of their psychedelic artwork for a long time.

This picture is a raw fractal made in Apophysis 2.09. Initially it ws supposed to be simple, but turned out quite complex - 35 xForms tightly mixed together. Hope you like it :)

View full size please

Musical background: Tool

I wish I could create an eye with apophysis.

It's not as hard as it may seem. People in Aposhack chatroom could help you with that. ;)

Any tutorial on how this is done? Is the eye an image ?

I love it!  Are the irises of the eye created as fractals?  They look very realistic.

Fracking amazing, hard to believe you did this in Apophysis, 2.09 version no less, I would have thought it at was Joel Fabers Image apo if it was an Apo flame at all :D
Awsome job :clap: :deviation: :+fav:

Thanks! :)

Basic formula is quite simple - crackle->radial_blur->linear+scry. The rest is just transforming and distorting this base to give it more realistic look. I've used waves2, julian, spherical and bubble for that purpose.

It's almost unbelievable that this is entirely made in Apo.
The eyes !
Bug coming from you I have no doubts  at all.
It is just F A N T A S T I C !!

Yup, it was entirely made in Apo. Had to use some satanic smartcrop to add shadows & highlights and give it more realistic look though (as realistic as possible for Apo :))...

Thanks for comment! :thanks:

This is by far the most impressive fractal creation I have ever seen out of Apophysis. The sheer level of skill taken to make this is just incomprehensible! :clap:

Had to use all my skills to make it look realistic (if this word is applicable for fractals :)).
And I'm quite satisfied with result. Usually (in 98.5% cases) I'm not... :D

Thanks for your comment! :)

I think this is one heck of a piece of art work. Amazed just does not do it. I can almost figure out what you did but I'm a long ways from getting there. Thanks for the inspiration. One day when I'm working and have a computer again. I have a goal. Thanks my friend

Good luck in your experiments. Will wait to see your results.
