This tutorial is a little too hard to follow. You should be a bit more clear on the instructions.

~My final result did not look as pretty .__.

looking at this i can see where it would be a bit confusing. i did this from a request. it does assume that the reader knows gimp pretty well.

please let me know were you are having problems and i will try to help. :)

On from the 5th step it gets a bit choppy. But no worries, I managed to get a good result with this effect. Problem was that I was using a real person, therefore the effects look different.

Awesome tutorial! But~ I am not getting the same result. I am using a picture of a real person. I am going to try it out again with the picture you used to see if it turns out the same.
istarlome's avatar
i haven't tried this with a real person either. which steps are giving you problems? i'll see if i can do a work around.

I finally worked it out. Using softlight gets the look you have in the tut. I tried screen but it does not work. The problem was that when I was trying to get the rainbow layer I used screen and basically it covered all the black. So I experimented with the modes and found softlight works best. :)
istarlome's avatar
right, no tutorial can address every scenario. sometimes it take experimentation. I'm glad you worked it out and didn't give up.
Tautterkle's avatar
Hmm ,I wonder why screen did not work. Oh well :D Glad I did not give up either. If I did I would not start it again lol
Tautterkle's avatar
I retryed it and same result. So I just messed with the modes of the colorful layer and found out the Dodge works awesomely well and has the result as yours. Now I am off to do the path thing :)

Thanks for making the tutorial :)
