Talking da shield!

For all the guys on #simplymaya who wanted to see it ( and for everyone else who has a cool idea for it ) here's my shield! I wanted to test in what ways I could create an 'absorbing shield' and came up with this. Anyone have any suggestions on how to improve the concept ( I can perfectise the thing later when I play around with it a bit ).

PS: I've made the normally invisible sphere on wich the beam collides a little bit blue, to make the effect more ... .... you know! . The rock in the middle (if you can see it) is just to illustrate that an object could summon such a shield and be in the center. The yellow beam is a direct. beam wich's direction shifts over 100 frames, therefore the bent beam . any tips?

Talking

Here's the anim. D'oh, I had to cut the size twice, because of a few lowsy bytes . So pardon the low quality

Just because Dirack is too f***ing lazy to log the IRC chat, here are my comments.

Code:
12:10:22:<Dirack> so, what ya think? :(
12:10:36:<danny> looks ok
12:10:45:<danny> might be nice to see more effect on the shield
12:11:07:<danny> maybe have some fluctuations in the shield's surface or something
12:11:16:<danny> color distortions, waves, etcs
12:11:21:<danny> etc*
12:11:25:<danny> damn, can't type :P
12:12:11:<Dirack> :)
12:12:14:<Dirack> ok
12:12:16:<Dirack> post that :)
12:12:24:<Dirack> it will make my thread look more active ;p
12:12:28:<danny> why? you just read it
12:16:17:<Dirack> no I didn't!
12:16:31:<danny> too bad
12:16:35:<Dirack> :(
12:16:37:<danny> log this conversation and read it later
12:17:23:<Dirack> already cleared it
12:17:25:<Dirack> post it
