i hope you realize that your HUmar over there wouldn't have any shoulder left if he was actually resting that saber on himself like he is. Those weapons are like lightsabers, they go through human flesh like a hot knife through butter, even if there is not speed applied. They might not show it that way in game play but that's how photons work. They can't show you ripping apart a booma in normal gameplay because that would have made it an "M" rated game.
but i'm sure you knew all this and have some sort of explanation, right??
As for the rest of the pic, i've got another nit picky problem. you can't legally duel weild weapons like your HUmar is doing. He would either have two daggers, or one saber, not one of each.
Other than these little technical bits about rules from the game and the saber position on the guy's shoulder, i like that art. That part is well done. I especially like your FOmarl there. At least, i think that's a FOmarl, it could be a FOnewearl with small ears i suppose. No, its just a FOmarl with a better outfit than they ever give them in game. At least, that's my guess, i suppose it could be another class too.
Ok, that's enough ranting on my part. I just felt the need to unload on you. Don't take any of my comments too seriously, i'm just needing to type SOMETHING, and you were the closest victim.

replies: "Dude, Harsh!! ouch, let me go put some ice on these wounds, i'll be right back. Okay, first defense: The characters struck a pose and I gave them weapons that complimented, in deliberate disregard to physics. I for one also noticed that Twilla's sword is longer than Dur's! But it looks cool, and there are only so many ways to hold an energy weapon, so I rewrote the rules. This is fanart, this is allowed. Also, as to duel wielding. Notice, they're not fighting, so he's not wielding either of them! he's just holding them for the camera. And characters can carry several weapons at a time, so why wouldn't he be able to take them out and show them off? Oh, and Twilla is just a chick hunter/human chara made as small as they'll go!! And a way cooler outfit, bit sexier while less slutty. I hope you're decently satisfied, though honeslty, the guy I drew this for liked it so much, I'd recover. later! "

I did not mean to be harsh in my above comment. I was just being nit-picky (BIG DIFFERENCE). I'm glad to see you didn't take my comments too offensively and that you had things to back up your picture. Yes, i do realize this is fan-art/fantasy. And you're right. They could just be posing for the camera and thus the duel-wielding rules would not apply.
As for the "cutting his arm off" bit. Let's just say the sword is about a millimeter above and is being held there on purpose, right?

replies: "Naturally! Either that, or they use fake props for posing, and so it's a glowing plastic lightsaber instead of the real thing! *lame!* Anyhoo, thanks for the comments, dude! "
