Is mist the new trend? I sure have been seeing alot of it.

I know my shot sucks by comparison, but I figured I'd toss something in, just to show that I'm still actually working.

Anyway, I'm torn between Demi and Mr. Z.

Ganon_dwarf.. No offense man, but your shot just isn't good. It's way too random, and uses alot of wrong tiles.

Blck, once again, too dark for my tastes. Plus, it's just... boring. I'm not saying mine is better, but yours just is not eye candy, which is what ssotw is all about.

Prae, I like yours, although I'm sure you'd even admit that it's not the best in the bunch. Still a solid quest though.

I'll think about it and vote later.

Whoa... lots of fog this week. icon_odd.gif

I'd have to vote for Teilyr's shot. It's just different from the many submissions SoTW has had (considering that area also looks perfectly modeled from LTTP).

Mr. Z... the smoke is a nice touch... but the rest of the screen looks bland (perfectly aligned, wierd waterfalls).

blckscab... I like the entrance... but... those mountains look funky. icon_odd.gif

Praethus... I know it's underwater... but the blue still kinda blinds me. icon_razz.gif

Ganon_dwarf... your shot has tile errors that could easily be fixed by remaking a few combos flipped horizontally. You used the wrong bottom cloud tile as well. Grass patches could help as well.

Demimore... this shot came in second for me. Had it not been for the funky looking water edges, I would have picked this one.

Yay Tei, you got that far in the quest! icon_biggrin.gif

Ruling out Demimore and Mr.Z since the translucency severely discolors things, and Ganon_Dwarf has a few bad cliff tiles.

But the other three are just... equal.

I'm going to have to decide later, leaning towards blckscab right now...

I picked Mr. Z's screeny because I thought he made good use of different textures without looking crampt or cluttered, and I thought the rapids were a nice touch instead of having a large waterfall. Demimore was a close second though.

Awww.... Looks like I'm gonna lose again.... Sure, the contest started today, but it's not looking good. Strangely, Mr. Z used mist TOO?!? And hey, Nick? What's wrong with the water edges? I think they are looking better than those in the Pure tileset. (They are from Descendant). Well.

Strange, when you came here you suddenly got a vote.

Nevermind it then. icon_shrug.gif

There are only two shots that stands out : Mr Z & Blckscab
Mr Z's screenshots always have that magical & amazing feel to it.
Blckscab's screenshot is very nice, especially in his castle/dungeon color choice. This is the most fantastic looking screenshot since your impressive last one.

The rest of the screenshots do not leave any impression (sorry if I sound mean), though I like the small crabs in Praethus shot.

I thought I sent my screenshot to you in the e-mail...?

oh well... I'm voting for Teilyr. It seems nice and more peaceful than the other screenshots.

Peaceful? It's Ganon and Link standing at the gates of Hyrule Castle, about to whip up on Syril.. How is that peaceful? icon_razz.gif Thanks for the vote though.

Anyway, my shot isn't supposed to leave an impression.. Just shows how well I can recreate stuff from lttp.

Tei, am I to assume you're crazy enough to copy LttP's overworld into ZC at full scale?

Anyway, Demimore's shot is good, but Mr. Z blows that out of the water in terms of pretty, in spite of the apparent dearth of custom sprites.

Mr. Z. The color sheme is perfect, unlike the fall cheme you used that one week. The mist is really nice, although it's already becoming overly used. Overall, very pleasant, and the caption helps me understand the shot more. But overall, it's the best looking.

Thanks for actually giving me a vote this week icon_razz.gif. BTW, second was Tei's picture.
