Would you sacrifice a few features in Apophysis for a less complex, confusing and slow experience? 

75 deviants said Yes, I don't need half of the crap!
41 deviants said No, I need all of the stuff.

Xyrus-02's Profile Picture

Artist | Professional | Digital Art
I'm a fractal fanatic and a dear lover of Apophysis since the 2.02nd hour.

I'm 28 years "old", German (still east German at heart) and I love programming and made it my job and I'm proud of it!

I've found joy, pleasure, addiction and even true love on deviantART.

I'm compulsively listening to metal and rock and I'm enjoying it.

I'm not afraid of Facebook.
Hey guys,

there is no way I can express the amount of requests in numbers - so I make something easier for you :) I've put my plugins up on deviantART so you can find them in my gallery again. Also, the groups which have added them to their galleries will have them once again - given that they didn't remove the "deviation in storage"-items yet.

Let me explain you why I moved them in the storage: I've been noticing that many of you guys are having them day-to-day in your fractals which, simply said, is really amazing! But the problem with the deviantART gallery is that it's very...weird hosting resources here. It's made for artwork and managing resources on this website is very stressful and more work than it should be. This is why I moved them over to my website which also hosts Apophysis 7x: If you click "extensions", you get exactly what you're looking for - with source code and always the latest version in a nice and easy list. I even linked (not hosted) other people's plugins and their source code there.

Well - worth a try but it didn't work :D Now you find them here again.

As for the tutorials, I have the same problem. Creating a tutorial as an artwork is rather painful because I have to either use StashWriter (which is terrible, IMO) or compose it in Photoshop. Aside from that, my two tutorials ("Making of Breach" / "Making of What happens with faith") haven't been used in a way I was happy with. I was not the only one with that problem, maybe some of you remember the gigantic shitstorm happening in the fractal community last year. Under that impression, I was removing them from dA (not even storage)

I still don't want them on dA yet. Maybe I change my mind about that but for now, I'll host them on "Behance" (as projects) which is, frankly, the exact thing they are because what I did with those tutorials is share my steps of work with you. On Behance, I also have other things which can't exactly be used as a tutorial but might be interesting for you anyway. check it out!

Finally, about my fractal artwork (the real purpose of my account on deviantART): I'm trying to do these again now. I've been trying quite a lot of things (not to my satisfaction, though) but I'm trying. Work had me for the beginning of this year (a 6 week-training project in Novi Sad, Serbia) and in other spots of my life, things aren't quite easy either. Lately, I'm plagued with a really deep depressive episode which makes me unable to pursure many things right now but I've got help - sorry if I sometimes steal your amazing CV fo my problems but she is my girlfriend and she does everything she can :aww:

- Plugins:… and…
- Tutorials:
- Artwork:…

Cheers and best :wave:


DA, you're ridiculous. How often do you want to rename "subscription"/"premium membership"/"core membership" lol
Apo Primer by Xyrus-02
Fun little tool to explore the workings of variations for Apophysis (and peers)
Primarily an utility for plugin developers but I'm sure there is a use beyond that. Should I share?
One of my widely used tutorials is back: "The making of Breach"…
