Made random white dots on background, some bit and some small.

    What's so hard about giving W.I.P.s?
    If you are truly dedicated to your work and that same work is completely made by you then showing them off should be no problem.
    Plus you are putting your icons up here to for people to judge and use, if you think this is too much of a hassle then tough luck. People like creative, well-done materials. They like it even more when it's original.
    If you think people don't trust you then you can take it as an opportunity to prove them wrong.

    Pretty damn tasty Icon, useful too, I would also agree that the yellow glow looks a bit out of place though.

    Could be useful alhough it's very simple.
    However, you could attach a blueish glow touch since that's a usual lightning.

    Indeed the blue is caused by the ionization of oxygen by the bolt's high energy.

    Hmmm, new up is interesting. 2 colour glows instead of one. Not sure if it's an improvement though

    Using more lightnings in the background and maybe doing some (dark) grey clouds would help a lot.
