  1. I didn't get to try this yet, but read through the whole tutorial. I can't wait to try it. I think it's outstanding and clever use of many basic tools. I got lots of good ideas from it.

  2. It is not SS-light-beams.color but it is SS-light-beams.abr that is an photoshop brush file to be import in photoshop to use. If you are using CS5 then you can just double click on brush and it will be loaded in your photoshop.

  3. I am sorry if you found some problem while following the tutorial and understanding. I would keep in mind to create more detailed tutorials. Thanks for your feedback.
