Lightning is a naturally occurring electrostatic discharge during which two electrically charged regions in the atmosphere or ground temporarily equalize themselves, causing the instantaneous release of as much as one billion joules of energy. This discharge may produce a wide range of electromagnetic radiations, from very hot plasma created by the rapid movement of electrons to brilliant flashes of visible light in the form of black-body radiation. Lightning is often followed by thunder, an audible sound caused by the shock wave which develops as gases in the vicinity of the discharge experience a sudden increase in pressure. It occurs commonly during thunderstorms and other types of energetic weather systems.
The three main kinds of lightning are distinguished by where they occur: either inside a single thundercloud, between two different clouds, or between a cloud and the ground. Many other observational variants are recognized, including "heat lightning", which can be seen from a great distance but not heard; dry lightning, which can cause forest fires; and ball lightning, which is rarely observed scientifically.
Humans have deified lightning for millennia, and lightning-inspired expressions like "Bolt from the blue", "Lightning never strikes twice", and "blitzkrieg" are in common usage. In some languages, the notion of "Love at first sight" literally translates as "lightning strike".

Here is my second attempt at lightning! I thought it would be cool to try do it in one of my diamond sky pieces. I’m really enjoying experimenting, lightning is so much fun to paint, and I love how this one turned out. What do you guys think? Any suggestions?? I filmed a process video for this too so keep an eye out ⚡️⚡️⚡️
"Eat velocity you dress wearing, book reading primitive." ... bang ... ping ... "oofff" as the velocity of the tiny bullet gets spread out across the wizard's entire body. "Hey what gives? You were supposed to fly backwards." The wizard straightens up holding a fist full of lightning. "A member of a primitive society I may be, but even I've heard of Conservation of Momentum." zaaaaaap.
