When I originally started with the stained glass weekly challenge, I wanted to do a stained glass panel that showed all of the planets in our solar system. The colors of the planets seemed to make the piece too busy, so I refocused on the sun and the earth.

We always see a lot of stained glass with holy symbols, and I thought it would be cool as a framing device for the earth. That earth is the planet most blessed by the solar system.

I used a 100x100 pixel frame, and my palette sits at 36 colors, although I suspect my actual color use is closer to 30 or 32.

I hope everyone likes it!

Thanks pyro! I'm probably only 6 months new to pixel art, so learning AA is on my to do list. I will work towards improving, and thanks for the feedback!

Your color count is actually 25. Use the following tool to analyze your color usage:

You could improve the look of your piece by anti-aliasing your lines, granted that would be a lot of work in this piece.

Otherwise I really like the concept! Welcome to PixelJoint
