How do you make things look like they glow? The only thing I can catch from here is a brush that is blurry around the edges (Gaussian blur, maybe?) and that the color is on a layer on top of the other layers.
I'll draw chibi versions of all the characters when I finish watching this episode of Code Geass R2.
Reminds me of the wave that CeCe Frey did to the audience on X-Factor.
The colore on top is Gardient map effect you wanna put it on a new layer on top
The shine is inner/outer glow at / layer style
and also dodge tool and burn tool
