This was the gift I made for the secret santa at Pixelation. My person mentioned a whole list of interesting things, including 'mythology', so when I saw that word I forgot about everything else. (Small obsessions with (Greek) mythology here.)
Since she just said 'mythology' I didn't want to do anything too specific so I started out making a couple of sprites of different Gods (can someone see who they are? they're related to each other, if that helps). I've never made sprites before, as I think you can obviously see (creepy eyes o.o). Good practice, fun experience.

It spells Phi Omega Tau Iota Omikron Sigma. Photios.

I put a lot of research into the meaning of it but it's slipped my mind atm. It's got something to do with light though.

the only letter I can read is "Ф"  which is in cyrillic.

I like. And with just 7 colors?
Anyways, the gods are Poseidon, Artemis with her bow, and ...Apollo? (Music)   My first thought for him was Orpheus, but he's not a god, so I'll go with Apollo for the last one. Nice work.
