Very large tutorial. This explains a lot of what beginners will want to know about Apophysis. You'll learn all about gradients, coloring techniques, some post-work, the editor window and variations, scripts, mutations, savings fractals, rendering fractals, and important Apophysis settings. Quite a lot of reading though
