I'll be honest, none of them appeal to me; so I null voted. Sorry for being harsh this time around, but:

Shoshon The Elegant: The layout of the room is alright, the colours you chose for the room is not.The lava looks horribly coloured, not to mention the walls aren't detailed in the slightest.

Anthus: Looks like a maze to me. The colour of the mountain puts me off here. I just don't like it.


Matthew: The best of the three, but still not worthy for a vote.This looks to be a dungeon, but there are no enemies in sight, this just leaves the screen to be empty. The palette is okay, but since the torches are present in the screen, I'd expect there to be a small section of brightness, circled by darkness.


I'm also surprised none of these screens were to do with Christmas, but meh, that didn't effect my opinions on the screens.

Shoshon - Looks like quite an interesting shot. The layout is quite nice, though I think colours could be worked on a bit more, maybe not make the walls and floor not so different with colours, since it looks a little odd. You could try and use dark blue for the walls and lighter blue for the floor probably. Nice job anyway.


Anthus - Pretty nice shot here. I really like the palette, it looks quite nice. I also like how maze-like the screen is. However, I noticed one oddity which is on the bottom-left corner with the mountains. That looks a little weird to me, IMO. You could probably edit the tiles there a bit to fix up the connection.


Matthew - Is that a mockup. I'm joking obviously, but yeah that looks quite nice. I like the simplicity and the transition from the dungeon to the overworld setting. Nice job here.


Was quite hard to choose between Anthus and Matthew for me, but I'll probably go for Matthew this time. Also, like what Joel said, it's a bit sad to see no Christmas-themed shots for this year, but ah well there's always next time.

It's not lava. It's Fanta.

I like the colors. But I may look at it with the blues Eddy suggested.

I don't really care to detail the walls. Maybe I'll just drop a couple lines if it's more pointed out.
