Screenshot of the Week 147

Oh look, it's the Arboria Tree! And Impa! And the Windmill Guy! And.... DIN?!
Someone needs a maid!
From my secondary game (unnamed), this is Ingens (latin for big). He's big and he's animated. When I get my Custom Subscreen done, I'll show some gameplay.
Blue Link 2007
Well Mr. Mole, I guess we're outnumbered.
Don't let a tileset's limitations scare you.
I could've sworn it had just been Spring!
It's cold up here... @_@
There you have it. Thanks everyone for entering your shots.

Nice... Tree? Seen the shot a while ago, and the tree lacks proper shading. Overall, it's a well done CGBZ shot.
Hmm... Nice walls. Other than that, the shot looks dirty, but I guess it was meant to look like that, so, nice job.
Hmm... You have Graphic skills, so I cannot vote for you. Ah well. The shot is a bit blank, but the Ingens sprite is pure awesome.
Blue Link 2007:
A standard Pure dungeon shot. The mole needs a bit of a touch up. Also, the waterfalls in the back look like they are flat, because they are all in a row.
Nice tiles... This isn't going to be made public either I assume? Anyhow, the snow's texture looks really weird, and the ice could use some touch-up work. The screen is well designed, but the gameboy mountains look outdated next to the rest of the graphics.
Umm... It looks like you just made this shot to prove the point that a shot doesn't have to have fancy graphics to be good. Well, my good sir, you fail pretty badly. I can't tell where anything is because of how flat the mountains are, and the tree alignment is weird. There is also no transition between the sand and the dirt, which looks utterly strange.
Umm... Nice shot? The arrangement is alright, but after all, it is just a screen from OoS.
EWW!!!!!! That shot sucks!
I'm trying to decide between Eatincake and Sharon, I'll get back on that.

Matthew: That's a fat tree... Nice shot, thought not a lot of activity. Only a small amount of tiles used, could perhaps use some decoration and tile variation.
EatinCake: Is that a guitar he's got there? I love it, nice sense of atmosphere. Probably not the best composed screen, but I think the colours tie it together nicely *votes*
Sir Pimpalot: Nice goron dude... custom? The mountains are a bit undetailed compared to him, and the shot is very plain, and very repeditive.
Blue Link 2007: ... I don't get it.... it's very blue though
Sharon Daniel: Very close second, but I don't like the grey snow, I thikn it contrasts too much with the aqua trees. With a more unified pallete this would have won.
Mr Z.: Is this a joke? I really expected better from a vet like you Nicely constructed shot, but far beneath ZC's limitations.
Moonwhisper: It's a good shot... but there's nothing to look at. Looks like a standard screen of the game, not a focal "screenshot worthy" screen.
Revfan9: Your choice of colour bewilders me. The trees are at a different angle to the rest of he shot and aren't detailed enough. Sorry Revfan, but you've submitted another shocker

Is that a dog singing
Anyways, it seems rather bland, and the big tree looks kinda weird.
I have no idea what to say, other than Rock On!!!
Fantastic spriting, would have easily won, except for the fact that the rest of the shot is awful, if you would have tossed some detail in it would have been great. Oh and the big guy, his feet look odd to me for some reason, just thought I should let you know.
Blue Link 2007
I have no idea what is going on, and what's with the huge mole?
The trees are brilliant, the snow needs to be colored more similar and the mountains look boring, other wise it is great, you got my vote as you have the most interesting shot, even with the faults.
While the screen construction is good for a Classic Layout, I really don't think enough effort went into this to get a vote.
This is nice and all, but overall not very competitive. It may be a consideration to add some spice to the screenshots, even though the GB version didn't have it.
The ghosts are great, but the mountains are horrid. Anyways, with nicer mountain, and less contrast with the mushrooms(?) I think this shot would be better.

Sharon Daniel's trees are actually rips from Four Swords Adventures. (!!!)
Yes, the tops are, and they're slightly edited. The tree trunks are my old edits of the original aLttP trees.

Matthew: Dude, that is one big tree! It looks great. I usually don't like symmetry, but it looks like that symmetry is a good idea in this case.
EatinCake: Well, what can I say? The look is great. There's money in several places, which does give the idea of a thieves' hideout. But, just curious, why the electric guitar?
Sir Pimpalot: Argh, attack of the symmetry! That guy reminds me of one of those Gorons from Twilight Princess. Aside from the goron, there isn't much else to see.
Blue Link 2007: Ok, merging two side sprites of a Mega Mole isn't a smart idea. It looks, uhhh,... weird. The water around the arena looks great, though!
Sharon Daniel: I honestly don't know what to say. The only thing I can say is that the mountains should be more pale in color.
Mr. Z: Finally, someone who uses the Classic Tileset! Despite the NES looks, I kinda like how everything is put together.
Moonwhisper: I'm starting to see a trend here. It truly is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Yes, everywhere I go. Also, I do not know what to say about the shot. It's,... uhh,... wintery.
Revfan9; Yup, it's a trend, alright. That greenness looks a little odd for a winter pic. Other than that, it looks ok.
And finally, I will make my vote! Uhh,... dang. I should start ruling out some people. *thinks for a while* Ok, after some thought, I think I'll go with Mr. Z. The majority of the screenshots just seem too graphics-oriented. Watch me get flamed for saying that.

If these shots are from the quests people are making, then the graphics they use are already determined by what tileset they're using. I didn't build this tileset just for SotW.
Posted 04 December 2006 - 11:01 AM
I also really liked Mr. Z's use of the classic tileset. He just made it work really well. Good job, both of you.
Posted 04 December 2006 - 11:54 AM
For me, my 2 favourites were EatinCake and Sharon Daniel.
They both offer a detailed screen.
In the end, I'm voting for EatinCake because it is something I have not seen to often in SotW. (Though, I haven't seen all that many SotWs, so...)
Posted 04 December 2006 - 01:58 PM
For the shot, it is ok. I dislike the graphics used except the trees and water. The pallete isn't exactly snow related.
Cake, nice attempt with the room, I do like the walls, but thats about it.
Matthew: Average, and the tree looks alright. Nice try though.
PimpALoT: Nice work you've constructed here. It resembles the last Mother game released in the Game boy.
Mr. Z: I'm guessing you've made this shot just to start SoTW? Anyways, it has good construction with the Classic set, but nothing something to vote for.
I'll null. Nothing seems to stand out.

Yeah I based it on that one...yeah i know its blank, but i wanted ssotw o have somefin'...
@sharon: I like the fsa trees. =pretty.
@blue link: .....Siamese mole?
Posted 04 December 2006 - 02:34 PM
Eatincake: Very nice. Gets my vote.
Sir Pimpalot: An edit of Masamune from Chrono Trigger isn't it? The edit is nice but the rest is dull and boring.
Blue Link 2007: Kind of a rather bland and it doesn't help that there are two gaint monty moles from SMW stuck in each other. <_<
Sharon Daniel: Nothing very interesting here that we haven't seen from you.
Mr. Z:....Mr.Z using the Classic set? Is that possible? Is this some kind of secret area or something? If so, then thats a nice classic screen there. Don't know how it can be improved though.
Moonwhisper: Theres something that seems odd but I can't seem to point out on what it is either. Its just missing something. Otherwise, this is a very good screen.
Revfan9: Very very strange screen. Why would there be water, grass trees and many trees in a Tundra? If I recall, A tundra is a very cold desert like area with barely any water, trees and let alone grass.

You mean the ground texture? I ripped that from a RPGM chipset.
