Default Light Beams wrapping around your meez. GIMP

Step 1: Open up your image. Make sure you have the layer box thing open. (Windows>Dockable Dialogs>Layers. OR Windows>Recently Closed Docks)

Step 2:
Make a new Layer. Make sure it's transparent! Name it Light Beam

Step 3:
Select the Paths Tool. Make little zig zag lines by clicking.

Step 4:
Drag them out into little curves

Step 5:
Select yourself a neon colour, You should still be in the paths dialog box. Click stroke path, your line width should be around 6.
(It should be coloured your colour with the path lines still)

Step 6:
Use the fuzzy select tool and select the light beam, go to select>border. Set the size to whatever you want.(I recommend 9) I used 6. Make sure you click feather border
It will have space between the beam and the fuzzy line.

Step 7:
Go to the bucket fill button. Click it. Choose another neon colour for the border. The click the space at the light beam.

Step 8:
Select>None. Click the eraser tool and erase every OTHER line.


here's the final product:

Hope this helped!
