Theme: The Lightning Flight

Below is some great information to help you get started on your submission:

Flight Information

The lightning dragons of the Shifting Expanse are engineers. They prefer to be quick and intuitive, to better harness the power of the tempest under which they make their home. Of all the dragons, lightning dragons are the most ambitious, changing the world to adapt to them rather than adapting to the world. Copper wire, tools, and reactors are their favored treasures.
Region Information

The dry, rolling dunes of the Shifting Expanse are defense enough for the wicked, industrious dragons that call the desert their home. Under the employ of the Stormcatcher, the inhabitants of this land carve their roosts deep into the earth and on the hollowed insides of the towering mesas and buttes that line the coast. Miles of wrapped cables criss-cross valleys and canyons, linking harnessed electricity to unseen machines.

a lot of these skins/accents are looking pretty good but again, why so many WIP and reserve posts? :/

@mmkiyondo Great entry! If it doesn't win i'd be interested in a copy. Or if you make a brighter/more saturated/accent version I'd be down for that.

Also, i'd like to ask permission to make some severe weather/noaa themed accents of my own as well (not for the contest, I have some storm chaser dragons and this is a really fun idea!)

Let me know, thanks!

@Jereton you're not allowed to claim a spot without submitting anything, but you are allowed to go back and edit your entry, so i don't see why submitting an unfinished skin should be an issue

@pigeonz huh, didn't know that. It's just disappointing to see so many wip/reserve posts because a lot of them never seem to be completed and clog up the space around actual entries :( my bad tho
