Nodnol Village. Just a simple screenshot, though this is a personal special screen for one reason. Try to find out why :P

An old tileset that uses only the level c-sets for enemies, items, Link, and background objects. Never completed, highly unusable, but here it is.

About Eddy's screenshot, I think it's special because "Nodnol" is "London" backwards. Could be something totally different though, but it seems a bit odd because Eddy lives there. :D

I REALLY loved Eddy's screenshot and would have voted for it; but, I think Demonlink's is just the tiniest bit more appealing to me. It could be the tileset, but I think Demonlink's shot just has an amazing atmosphere and makes me really want to play the quest to find out the full story. Although, Eddy's shot is beautiful...

Eddy - looking down on the house looks a bit odd while I see everything else from the front. And the rocks might look better in a more rock-like color I think. Beautiful screen.

Demonlink - another great screen. Lost Isle comes to mind. Story sounds also great. Hero of Dreams comes to mind. The mountain going down behind the big tree look a bit odd with the transition to the higher areas. Not a big deal though.

Avataro - the walls would look better with some details to indicate that they are walls. Especially the corners and edges. I really like the screen structure. Voted here.

TheRock - looks somewhat empty. And the statues look placed random. Some tiles that indicate an old ruin, a place that is falling apart would be nice.

Sheik - the mountains and rock borders form a few straight lines that look a bit too unnatural. The colors, tiles as the screen design are a feast to the eyes.

Alestance - is this supposed to be a night-screen? It just looks dark. I don't like the colors in general, especially Link's and the enemies'. The round mountain-corners and the low mountain on the right also look odd. Beside that a nice, solid screen.

Well, that's one thing, but the village name is just because I ran out of name ideas lol (Credits to Yoshi for that). The reason is something else, look back through the screenshots of my older quests on the database and see if you can spot something :P

Can't do much about the house, even if I wanted to. Mostly because if I try to fix up the house with my fantastic spriting skills, it would end up looking absolutely horrible. I'm just gonna have to live with the default house tiles :P And as for the 'rocks' (or what I think they're supposed to be dirt patches), I could probably try to find a different colour like brown or grey, but I dunno, it seems fine to me IMO. I could try and mess around for a bit though and see what I can get.

 

Was totally not expecting to get close 2nd place here, honestly thought Demonlink would've been completely dominating the contest by being so far ahead lol (would've voted for him or Sheik if I didn't submit)

Wow what a fantastic week! Always great to see classic-esque shots with much more realized life and detail Eddy :) . Love the palette Demonlink, the whole shot feels bathed in the orange/pink sunset glow, especially the cliff browns. Sheik strikes again with that fantastic BS+ tileset that looks so great, especially the vibrant trees and soft gold colors on the thatched roof (even has Mutoh!). Eddy and Shiek are super close IMO, but I'm voting Eddy because using classic well is never easy. Llew enod!

Demonlink, how did Kans manage to afford and buy such a fabulous headstone for his brother if they are hated by humans? :P

Don't let yourself get blinded by prejudice! Moblins are just normal people like you and me, they can make their own fabulous headstones.

Well, one thing you COULD do is edit the top of the house to only be 1 tile tall, rather than 2 (relatively easy, just cut the top and bottom tiles in half then overlay them), I think the second tile is what's making it look too thick, which is why it looks odd.

What Naru mentioned. Don't underestimate Moblins my dear friend. Even they deserve fancy graves. :P

I might mess around with it for a while then and see what I can come up with. IMO I think it currently looks fine the way it is, but I'll see what I can do.

It's fine, Eddy. Classic isn't really perfect on perspective to begin with... :P
