Fractal art landscapes (mandalascape) generated using Apophysis 2.08 (3D Hack). Each band inside the mandala was built up in separate layers (transforms) using flower2, julia3D, and/or hemisphere transform variations. In my previous work, 3D Mandala, the majority of the bands were built up using julia3D and hemisphere transform variations.
Plan view shows details of the mandala better than the 3D landscape view. However, I prefer the 3D landscape view for aesthetic reasons.
To generate the overall landscape, a small amount of pre_rotate_x was added to the final transform. Reflections of the mandala were cast above the horizon, giving the illusion of an atmosphere. Additionally, post_depth and sineblur were added to the final transform to create depth of field.
