Now this is some solid competition. Every screen uses a different tileset, and I think there's a good mix of entries.
 
Eggman's entry really captures the deep woodsy feel, and it really is intriguing. I almost think it would be better off without the transparent layers though, as those can make the colors they cover look odd. This is something I dealt with a lot when making the area my screen was from.
 
Shane's entry is a love letter to my sensibilities in area design. In other words, I'm a sucker for lava areas, and this one is top notch. I personally always thought the AlttP lava looked like cheese, but in this case, bring on the cheese! The way the cliffs are used also gives me Minish Cap vibes, which is fine by me.
 
My screen is the only one without a subscreen, or character. :P I was messing around with making palettes, and this was one inspired by a level in Sonic Mania. I'm pretty happy with it, but I'm sure it can be improved.

Eggman666 - Looking pretty good once again. The perspective kinda looked really off at first for me, but after looking again it all definitely makes sense now. Definitely like all the details and attention to design, I assume this dungeon is gonna turn out great.

 

Anthus - This is a really bizarre shot. The colours look really weird, and I guess that's why it looks quite cool. The overall design looks nice and I really like the mist.

Also:

I was messing around with making palettes, and this was one inspired by a level in Sonic Mania.

Spoiler

 

Shane - Oh damn, I instantly thought of Skyward Sword when I saw this. I really like the Earth Temple entrance, it looks great. Also I never really noticed this, but are those Fire Zoras? As a suggestion, maybe you could turn them into Magma Spumes found in the game? Would probably fit the area better, unless they are meant to be Spumes and I'm just blind, then ignore me lol.

 

I voted Shane this week, but good turnout.

Eggman666, you've got an incredibly-constructed shot there and I voted for you. I just have two thoughts:

 

First, in terms of SotW, almost every shot I've seen from you is practically the same shot, in terms of palettes/style/graphics/scene conveyed. You kicked it up a notch this time around which is very impressive though.

 

Second, I suggest you submit slightly brighter shots at least to SotW. I could play in an area like that, but trying to look at it on the forum is a major headache. This goes for all the shots I've seen from you from this forest dungeon place you've been working on. Even if all this takes is just adjusting the palette for when you take the screenshot.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing what you can do when working on a different environment. :thumbsup:

Voted for Anthus. It's simply a good and interesting screen.

 

Eggman666 - same issues like before, especially lacks color variations, nontheless stunning.

 

Shane - some really nice ideas!
