Gimp script-fu Mythical

Create awesome atmospheric lighting and mythical effect in Gimp.
The following requirements must be met:

Gimp 2.10
Download Gimp
2 leyers must be present "background" and "brush-mask"
Please read the following Tutorial
LayerFX for 2.8 (Python-Fu)

1. Installation

unpack the archive
use Winrar or Winzip
Copy the file into the Script folder of Gimp (C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\share\gimp\2.0\scripts or C:\Users\Your User Name\.gimp-2.8\scripts\share\gimp\2.0\scripts) (Gimp v2.10: "C:\Users\Your User Name\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\scripts")
Copy the file in the ("gradients") gradient folder of Gimp. (C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\share\gimp\2.0\gradients or C:\Users\Your User Name\.gimp-2.8\gradients) (Gimp v2.10: "C:\Users\Your User Name\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\gradients")
Now start Gimp
for a quick start, you can use the template "skull.myth.001.xcf"

2. Preparing the image

Open an image of your choice (RGB, RGBA)
good results I have conceded with image sizes of 2000px and higher
create a new leyer and "mask" your object

Please pay attention to the correct spelling of both layers, "background" and "brush-mask" (picture 3). Please also note that the layer "brush-mask" is automatically tailored layer (autocrop layer). (picture 4)

3. Start the script

Calling the script (picture 5)
