Tiled Tubes Tutorial by NilNilNil Tiled Tubes Tutorial by NilNilNil
As promised, here's the tut on creating tube and ribbon-like flames from tiles in the style of Sigillum. I made into a ZIPped .PDF to save downloading time. There's a couple disclaimers inside you may want to read before you begin - you'll need a square tile fractal to start with, which can be created according to the instruction provided here [link]

I've tested and proof-read the tut a few times and it should work fine, but please feel free to notify me every bug you may find.

Hope you'll have fun with this, and don't forget to show me what you tweak out of it, mkay?

Last minute edit: initially, I'd been in doubt for a while wether or not I should provide a starter flame with the tut, since the credit for the tiling technique's not mine after all.
However, well after finishing the tut, I've just received a most welcome permission note from `Platinus. I can't edit the .PDF at the moment - however, included in the .ZIP you'll find a text file with the starter flame parametres - if you can't/don't want to get to the link above, just copy-paste the text into Apophysis for a quick start.

Last minute edit take two: :iconamorinaashton: just notified me that a transform was missing from the starter text I'd uploaded. This is entirely my fault, I've messed up between different copypastes. If you've chosen to go through the LTS it'll be no prob. However, I've fixed that now. My apologies.
