Punch: The authors in those tutorials assume advanced Photoshop knowledge I think and assume you'll know how to accomplish some of the things they tell you to do.
As for the glow, if you're using layer effects, open up the layer properties and check the box that says "mask hides layer effects". I don't think that's the exact text, but you'll see it. It's the fourth checkbox down in PS 7, I believe.
After you check that box, just apply a layer mask to your layer. Then, when you paint on the layer mask, the layer effects will be erased as the tutorial intended.
I read through some of the tutorials and put together my own image: http://www.jereme.com/clients/challenges/4.jpg I know there are a lot of technical things wrong but I was eager to try out a bunch of different things I learned all at once. haha.
Thanks for the heads up. I had always wondered what "Mask hides layer effects" meant. Since doing the tut I have found another way of doing the same thing. Under Layers> Layer Styles> Create Layers it separates each effect into a linked layer which can be edited.
Each method has it's own uses- so much Photoshop, so little time.
BTW... Enjoyed your artwork.
