Thryhring by Cosmic-Cuttlefish Thryhring by Cosmic-Cuttlefish
My first attempt at 3D-ifying a gnarl pattern in Apophysis. It was fun to experiment with... I can see why people find gnarls addictive.

The title is from an area in Shiny Entertainment's Sacrifice, an RPG/RTS hybrid, which I used as inspiration for the colour scheme and overall feel. Thryhring is the mountainous and wintery capital of Empyrea, and the seat of power of Stratos, the god of storms.

For anyone wanting to try out / learn more about this sort of pattern, SaTaNiA's Gnarls Tutorial and tatasz's Gnarl Handbook are great learning resources. Thanks for looking!

Made with Apophysis 7X.

That's lovely. I've been wondering about making cityscapes in Apophysis. I really like the ambience of this image.

Thank you very much! I've been enjoying your 3D fractal work so far, so I'd definitely be interested to see your results if you made a fractal cityscape yourself.

That's nice :D  I never managed to lift them into this cone shape. Maybe when I'll have time, I'll look into those resources you mentioned in the comment :)

For the 3D effect, I used waves2_3d for the gnarl base, and then most of the transforms have a small amount of ztranslate in them. It took a bit of tweaking to avoid weird overlaps, but worked out alright in the end. Those tutorials were really fun to work with - I'd definitely recommend them. :)

Thanks Renate! I hadn't really tried making gnarls before (apart from an unsuccessful attempt a few years ago), but I can see why people like them. :)
