No, there is no postwork. All the tiling is done in Apophysis. Thanks for the :+fav:

I posted a mini-tutorial a while ago on the FracFan Forum describing how to do "weave tiles". You can view it here --> [link]

I also wrote some on using colour symmetry on these types of tiles --> [link]

This tile, and most of my other ones, are "hexagonal tiles". It is similar to the weave tiles except the tiling transforms are rotated at multiples of 60 from the identity transform.

This is not a very good tutorial as far as tiling is concerned, but it may help you get started. Take a look at the tiling section in [link] . It could be improved by showing how to use only 2 linear transforms to get the tiling shapes. See which ones you can delete and still get the right patterns.

This is very good tilling. I love the connecting spheres.
