You wanted something big, so I instantly thought of my...favorite planet, Jupiter.

I am new here, I tried to submit a sprite to this challenge last friday, but to this day it is still pending approval. When do I need to submit my creation so I can hope it can find its way to the weekly challenge participants?

This is the sprite, by the way - it is my rendition of Bojnice castle in Slovakia.
