Skateboarding Silhouette With Energy Streaks
   

A result for a tutorial I just recorded for the basics of gimp tutorial I've been working on, and this cameout to be the final result. (It's actually a very easy and simple effect to create)

After thinking about it a little more... did you make that with the Path tool? and then add some sort of Filter to it?

Kind of.

In essence to create this, just grab an image and put it into gimp as a new document, have just the person in 1 layer without the background, make him/her black (colors/colorize) make a layer below that for your background and make a new layer above it all and make the hill/grind rail (I just used paths, a brush, and filled that with black) then the light streaks are stoking a path at 8px (bg color for the line streak) and another 4px stroke on the path above that, the 8px 1 has a 8px gaussian blur, and 4px 1 a 4px gaussian blur I merged thoughs together and then made another new layer and stroked that with the sparks brush, and went to colors/colorize to adjust the color, and then merged it down, then did the erasing to make it go over, and under the object, in this case Rodney Mullen skateboarding Smile

So you did do that with the Path tool in my world X D, it looked familiar, it is kind of like a Neon Tube, just with some Sparks around it X D
