    Hmm .... I think Maffe´s ones look better ;) Try those blured-down white things who look like icicles, and get some more white for the snowy-effect I guess ...

    BTW: I still dont know how you managed this BG structure (not color ofc x)) ... mess around with the solid noise a bit and then change the layer mode I guess ... please tell me, looks nice :)

    Actually that's what I got from the tutorial. Even though I also think the icicles look better that's not what the original tut calls for. To get the BG's effect make a solid noise layer, set that on overlay, make another blank layer and fil it with the lightning pattern set that mode on screen or overlay and lower the opacity. Finally merge it down on the noise layer and set the new layer's blend mode to overlay again. If you want more details on the effects go to my Youtube channel, Davidwoodfx and watch the supercharged lightsaber tut. When I make the tutorial for this effect I'll show all the steps.
