Sierpinski and Apophysis Part 2

Quilt 1
Filter Factory Plugin
Gallery F, Magic Triangles Q

It's Sierpinski's triangle.

If you have a graphics software program that can use plugins, that's an easier way to generate fractals.

One of the tutorials I mentioned in my previous blog post had another fractal I've seen in my free plugins.

She called it Sierpinski's Quilt.

Filter Factory Plugin
Gallery S, Patches Factory and also Patches Factory Competition

I used Paint Shop Pro's kaleidoscope, but Mehdi has a free Kaleidoscope plugin that's nice also.

I was working with purple and green colors, but these plugins make many different pattern colors.

Here's a different color scheme example.
