I don't know what program you use but in maya you can use glow in the materials tab...this is really just a post effect you could use a simple render and put glow on it in photoshop.

Sibce it's just for a still, you could easily model the lightning shapes with splines, make them renderable and put a nice glowing material on it.

But, if you'd want to animate it, you could check out --this tutorial-- as a starting point and play with it.
