Debut of the Lightning Fish

I'm not sure what type of caffeine concoction I was drinking the day I put this photomanip together but it was certainly potent. It started off from following a tutorial to outright disregarding the tutorial (because the creator never seems to actually teach how to create an effect).

Have fun!
