Really Fancy Hexagons

I remember as a child buying books of paper patterns from WHSmith to colour in using coloured pencils and cheap felt pens, and getting very frustrated that mine always ended up looking a bit of a mess with half the felt pens running out before it was completed! One of the patterns was made up of varying sizes of hexagons, so I suppose in a way that is my digital answer to those colouring books! It uses a variation of Samuel Monnier's ‘SFBM II’ colouring algorithm, with a ‘Pixel’ formula, and has ten layers. With this type of image, most of the variation is produced using smooth gradients made in ‘Apophysis’, which allow an infinitely variable colour combination for the finished piece.
