    I like it. If you were asking about lighting it more, I'd say yes. Definitely light the areas when the lightning comes out and when it strikes the blade.

    Are you using the glow settings in the plug-in? I would recommend making your own glow like you would a lightsaber. At the moment, the glow looks too solid and should taper more like your lightsabers in the shot.

    Also, brighten up your cores, particularly the red arc.
