This is a nice change of pace... I haven't really tried doing buildings of any kind and a dynamic action setting like this will really be a good place to start.

Edit:  If jalonso doesn't participate this week I'll be ever so cross.

Ensellitis, that's looking insane! Can't believe you did the entire thing with two colors, yet made everything so clear.

I liked the first version a bit more - just the tower that is - now it's clean and clear but it lost the sexy texture :(  either way though, that's great.

I might have to sit this one out..

How the hell did Ens and luca get so much done?  I cry foul!
 
@Luca:  That lightning is flat out excellent.
 
@Ens: You stole my idea bastard! I was gonna try a 3 color scene, but since you've rocked the 2 color I better rethink my approach. Once crit... I would make the lightning longer.

Here's what I've got so far. They grey is meant to be temporary but I think I'm getting used to it, we'll see.

I'm not quite sure about the lighting on the tower, looks a bit wrong perhaps. Neither am I sure what'll happen in the background, some landscape maybe.
 
Anyway, any suggestions?

Woa, I have never done lightning before, it will be really a challenge.
Maybe I should make it ISO, I need to practice it.

I have sort of decided what I want to do: recreate the lightning scene from "Back to the Future". The building from the movie has an anthena over it,  I have doubts if it could qualify as a tower. If you see this frankie, can you tell me if it fits?

Here's a rough sketch, what I'm thinking about. Maybe I should try a bit smaller, because I'm pretty sure I won't finish this in time.

that actually crossed my mind, but I couldn't think of a nice way to arrange everything, I'd suggest using the queen to fry the rook instead of the bishop, more battle chess-y ;)

Definitely better with the new texture. I would try to make the lighting coming down from the right of the cloud (starting in that dark area). Or make the distance between the tower and the cloud larger, but I think you're sick of dithering by now :).

Only that the lightning should be more zigzag-esque, not so straight
