Nice shot. Lightsaber seems a bit too saturated to me, could also do with a small amount of hue shifting to give it some more life (since your friend did it, you can tell them that ). Then you should add light reflections off of your face from the lightsaber to incorporate it into the scene. And finally taking out the stuff in the background to make it seem less like a park and more like a jungle planet. It looks like there's some jpg artifacts too, which kinda spoil the quality of the pic - would be nice if it was a bit sharper. What I'm trying to say is this would look pretty epic with some more manipulation.
No...HOPING for beta by the end of the year. But go to SWTOR.com and check it out. There's an AWESOME game trailer there-not gameplay...but the 2-3 minute animated short smokes episodes 1, 2 and 3 combined lol
