I absolutely agree, and I've done my share of experimenting with Force Lightning.

I'm curious as to the method as well. At a guess, I'm thinking it's a photo of real lightning with some fantastic trimming and blending. For someone who just started using Photoshop, it's damn impressive, and I look forward to seeing future images. :joy

Played with the settings with the outer glow and size of the bolts. Some lense flaring at hand

Ahhh...didn't even think of the lightning brushes...

Yeah, I have some loaded into my copy of Photoshop, but I tend not to use them. I prefer drawing my own. Even still, you used them very effectively. Kudos again!!

You can also make them by doing a ton of steps using clouds..and duplicating, then inverting and yada yada yada...it creates lightning

I just make them similar to how I do lightsaber blades. They're not as realistic as yours, but they work just fine in a fantasy setting--especially since most of my pics tend to have a painting-like quality to them.
