Step 2 make the selection with the magic wand tool and hit the delete key
Step 5 Not sure what he's talking about with the Radial Gradient bit
I just used the brush tool to paint in the colors

Step 8 Did you download the brush?

Hi lenny and welcome to PSG.

I have seen and done thousands of tutorials...............literally thousands............this is one of the worst tutorials I have ever seen!

The way the author tries to interject humor by his ridiculous references to "following a cooking recipe", along with the ridiculous amount of typo errors, this tutorial is tremendously confusing! He does not explain himself, as you have noticed in step 2! I also noticed that his second link to a custom brush in step 11 leads nowhere.

Since you have stated that you are new to Photoshop, I would highly suggest that you forget about this tutorial and try some that aren't so confusing and poorly explained. Not to mention that the end result is really pretty poor.
