In this News Article it's time to look at another very popular Fractal Style - Julians (and julias).
Made in Apophysis or Apo3D (this is what I'm going to be showcasing in the features) - Julians use as a base a variation
of the same name to create a complex network of detailed 'arms' repeating endlessly complex patterns, streching out  from
the central 'jewel'.
You can adjust the ' power 'of the variation - by the variation number. Depending on variables of the variation - you will get
different compositions and shapes. And don't be afraid to input the negative numbers, those give awesome effects, as
long as you adjust things appropriately :nod:
On DA there is few 'masters' of julians and grand julians, I'm talking about Zueuk and ClaireJones, NilNilNil :nod:
And then we have a few ultimate 'julain' lovers, who create surprising and fun compositions in Apo and in the 3D version
like nightmares06 or kuzy62 Whenever you have a chance to pay a visit to their galleries you really should :heart:
There are also formulas in other fractal programs dealing with julian images - UltraFractal and also Incendia, which bases
the forms on many formulas of the 3d versions of julians, julias (but that should call for another article).
Have a look at all the wonderfull compositions from many artists here on our own devArt.

I hadn't learned julians until the past few weeks and of course fell in love with them! Unlike a lot of other fractaling, I find julians quite relaxing. This is a great article and thanks a bunch for including Epispiral-Julian!
