I would say that is down to taste. I like the bold diagonal, gives it direction and power.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Same here.  The bold diagonal is one of my favorite effects of the piece.

That's a nice piece, plus I love the selout bit of the text.
Only thing that I'm not comfortable with is the pulsating animation. It seems that the darkest colors get more of the glow, and frankly most of the animated light on the body seems completely unrelated to the pulsating trixel (or whatever it is) that is supposedly the source of light. If your intention was merely to depict that you are brimming with power or something, then okay.

For some reason my eye keeps getting drawn to the small rectangle on his neck to the right of his chin. Not sure why, but maybe that is at odds with the angles and hues around it? Perhaps I am seeing it as part of the background (even though it's lighter).

Not sure!

ilkke yeah I was just going for general pulsating power of PIXEL more than a realistic effect.
