As far as visuals go, I'd have to say it's a toss up between Demimore & Upbeat. Since this is all about eye candy, practicality and over all zc coolness don't really apply, so I can't vote for you Prae. icon_sorry.gif

Furthermore, blck's isn't colorful enough for me. icon_shrug.gif Sorry.. Your quest is defintely on my "play when it's released" list though. icon_thumbsup.gif

I'll vote later today.

Maybe not to you, but I like to look for ZC coolness in pics. That's why I didn't vote for zoraman's that one time when his gfx kicked butt.

I voted for UpbeatPenguin yesterday. But I never give my opinions on why I pick any of the screen shots that I pick over the others. But this time I will.

From the top

Demimore
Its good but there are two things wrong with it. One its boring. Suggestion: Make a mote with a bridge and maybe some torches so it will liven it up a bit. Second, the screen shot is to dark. My eye instantly goes to Link. Why you might ask. Cause he is ten times brighter than everything else on that screen. Suggestion: Either lighten up the dark tiles and put a translucent over everything. Or make Link darker.

UpbeatPenguin
Its the best out of the four. Its not the best screen shot I've ever seen, but its good. And since I did vote for it, It gets no suggestions.

Praethus
To me it looks defiantly ordinary. Now I know its a puzzle, but this isn't a puzzle contest. So, with that said I have to go with the way it looks. And it looks. well, ordinary. Suggestion: Use different floor boarders, possibly different walls too. But what ever you do, try and make it look more unique.

blckscab
Now, if I knew you made that on your own, without ripping anything, then I would have voted for it. But, I think you ripped it. Now I know all the other tiles the others are using where once ripped too. So fair game right? Wrong! You ripped a screen shot of a quest. They ripped tiles of a quest and put them together in a different way.

What I said was my opinions. I didn't say them because I hate you. Nor did I say them because I'm a mean person. So please don't take offense to what I said and retaliate on me. Mmkay?

Prince, I'm glad you posted your opinions. It is evident that you know how to put together a good screen, and any advice you can give is greatly appreciated by me. If you don't mind could you continue to do so?

I would love to continue to give a small review on the screen shots. But some people take it personally. And so long as members don't get mad at me I will continue. icon_wink.gif

Hey.. I like that.

We can give Prince his own weekly advice column. icon_lol.gif

By the way, I've voted for UBP. Demi, it's just like Prince said.. You need to add some crap to it. Water never hurts. A moat with a drawbridge that you have to shoot an arrow at to lower, for example.

Little things make all the difference. icon_smile.gif

Please please please offer more in the future. They're probably the best rants in the group.

The castle looks very excellent. I notice a great resemblance to the forest temple of OoT in that pic... BTW, I agree with your last suggestion.

Well... no comment. icon_cool.gif

Hmm, I'm one of few. I judge these based on graphics, variety, and ZC coolness. This is why I didn't vote for zoraman's that one time everyone was like "It's unbeatable kickbutt stuff." There was nothing cool about it. It was just a lot of REALLY nice tiles. This is why Praethus almost got my vote before I decided that the number tile didn't really look right.
