Check to see if your pencil tool is on Straighten mode and if it is then set it to ink (the way you get to this is with the option at the very bottom of your tool bar, click it and several options should come up)

Hope that helps

Looks cool! :) I would advice to keep the lightning shapes more simple, so you can easily see the main line and follow the motion. Keep up the good work! ;)

I might want to use this in a sprite fight one day.

You mind?  I will give credit.

I was hoping that this video would be a reference for people, so they could learn something. I prefer that people do their own animations rather than just using this one. But anyway, I've got the file and I can't stop you :)

Think of it this way.  If I use this animation and give credit and it turns out awesome, most fans will want to know where that came from and the credit will lead to to you.

But yeah, you give a good point as it being a reference, and i will acknowledge that.

If you look closely in the video there is a box underneath the timeline that states the FPS (He set it to 30FPS).
