simple aurora tutorial.

Hi everyone ^^

So after many requests, I've finally done a tutorial! This tutorial shows you my way of doing auroras. I've tried to keep it as simple as possible, so I hope that this will help you. 

Disclaimer: This is only my technique, and I am well aware that there may be better ways to create a similar effect. Also, since this is my very first tutorial there may be mistakes so please kindly point it out to me if it doesn't make sense.

Please fav/comment if you found it helpful! And don't hesitate to ask questions and I'll do my best to answer them!

This tutorial is for Photoshop CS5.

A aurora doesn't look like this I used to live near north pole and I saw alot of aurora so I can judge that it doesn't look like one I'm sorry I'm not saying that you are bad it looks beautiful but a aurora doesn't look like that.
