CHALLENGE: Side Canvas Not So Fruity

Much like the Mid-Canvas Void challenge we ran a while back, the goal here is to pixel something using the provided template. You must, however, include a single solid coloured area - indicated below by the highlighted green square. The highlighted section can be any colour you want; it doesn't necessarily have to be #00ff00 / green.

You may rotate the canvas if you like; this means that the top, right, bottom, or left hand side could contain your solid-colour area.

Perhaps, most importantly, unlike the previous challenge, your image doesn't have to relate to fruit (but it can if you want).

Canvas Size - Use template:

the image

Colours - Unrestricted. Keep in mind though, that your chosen side canvas section must only be one solid colour.
Transparency - No.
Animation - No.

Hi. I am trying to make an egyptian sky and landscape with an huge and heavy sun, using the as few colors as possible. I want it really minimalist and jagged.

This is what I've done for the moment, for the landscape:





 
I am quite satisfied with it, but I would like to add the winged solar disk symbol, though I don't know if it really fits, and would like to have some advices, if you please:








This is my source for the symbol:



Any comment and critic on any aspect of the art is welcome.

Surely not!
Unless someone has already done something and I do not know ... But still they keep doing it until someone says it already exists

ah ok, might want to change the position of the splash effect near it then, kind of looks like the laser designator is causing it, if you get what i mean

The site loads fine and I can see the pictures there; I can also see your first picture.  Did you do anything different with the second one?
 
Edit:  It's showing fine now. : )  Yes it does look like rain.

@ Chibiwing:   ooooh, that is really pretty.  It would be so cool to see that animated, too bad there's no animation allowed for this challenge.

@ a3um:  That is amazing.  I'm kind of wondering how it would look if the rain was at an opposing angle to the laser instead of being parallel.  I think that might make things more dynamic/interesting, but maybe I'm completely wrong (it's really hard for me to tell whether that would look good or not without being able to see the rain at a different angle)

both of your pieces are quite subtle with hiding the square, too, which I respect.

EDIT: now I'm not so sure about what I said regarding the rain, hmm...

Thank you very much!  I don't have the skills to suitably animate even if we were allowed to, though. ^_^'
Can y'all tell me what things specifically need improving on?  I really want to get better. -^_^-

I think sticking with one, making a WIP thread, and applying any critique you might receive would be the best way to ensure you get an entry in. Giving up on one and pumping out another seems to ignore the root issue.

On this piece, the crystals need work. Crystals are distinctive due to their numerous, distinct, flat planes. Yours don't resemble the 3d polygons one expects a crystal to be, rather they are flat, and the shading completely ignores the separate planes that compose the crystals, instead relating only to the general shape of the contour. the background is over-dithered.

I don't like either one.  Try looking around to see how others have drawn crystals and look at real crystals too.
 
I haven't been able to work on the edits for my piece since I got food poisoning the other day.
