Took a null.

- TriMaster001 -

Dungeon shot... Not much to say. icon_shrug.gif

- The Satellite -

>:O

- Evan the great -

Very good usage of tiles. I freakin' love your tileset/palettes/etc. Nice layout, and light beams. Good show.

- Ebola Zaire -

I don't like the new mountains in that color. Just... kinda bland.

- /M/ -

Nice palette, tiles, usage. You need a Link sprite, though. icon_deformed.gif

Trimaster: Nice dungeon shot as always but it's just not as eyecatching as others.

The Satellite: Good shot, but as I said before, don't really like how the trees are grouped.

Evan: WOW, nice palette! I love your forest shots!

Ebola Zaire: Again WOW, great mountain usage and great detail.

/M/: Jeez way to many great shots this week. This shot is really cool and the graphics and palette is just amazing.

My vote goes to Ebola, so close between you last three but that's the one that I seem to like the best.

Nulled of course.

Would've voted for TM or /M/ if I voted. Good show everyone.

TM001's: I like that dungeon screen. Somehow it looks more detailed than the other screens. [votes]
TS: That's from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe! Add more detail to the snow and it would look better.
Evan: Aren't those fortress walls normally used as dungeon walls instead? Anyway, it looks good but the beams of light look a bit odd...
Ebola Zaire: I like those mountain tiles. Bit too brown for my liking, though...
M: Looks like there's mist all over the screen. Whether that's good or bad still needs to be determined...

icon_omg.gif Holy Cow! 7 votes already. I never thought I would get that many votes! I guess it was the video?

Anyway my vote goes to Evan the Great. That new palette left me drooling.

Sattelite: Too underdetailed.

Ebola: My second choice.

/M/: Nice but not nice enough.

Trimaster: Would have gotten my vote, if it wasn't so dark. Dark screenshots = not good for SOTW. Great for gameplay though. Second place.

Satellite: Too bland, not really much going on and very minimal detail.

Evan the Great: Nice shot, good graphics, but there are some empty spots which you could fill along the top, right side and bottom left. Make it a bit more interesting. Right now, nothing is jumping out besides those trees and that alone won't cut it.

Ebola Zaire: My vote goes here. Its not entirely the best, the palette is kinda yucky. But the design is great and its very busy in terms of stuff happening in the screen. Good use of mountains, you're as good as I am.

/M/: Ugh, no. I know its a WIP, but the palette sucks, the graphics are not used correctly. WIP are not good for SOTW.

Null'd, of course.

TriMaster001: I love this shot. It's refreshingly different from what we've seen in the past... IMO, your dungeon shots are amazing.

The Satellite: Not so hot on the GB + LttP + Pine tree thing you got going on there. icon_unsettled.gif

Evan the Great: Your palette is great, but it's almost like we've seen this before... well, except those light beams. Which are amazingly better than the Pure counterparts.

I like the palette... kind of a dusty/worn down look that's excellent for the area. Granted, the palette didn't have a high enough contrast for the mountains... I'll have to fix that later, I was really in a rush to get this out before Xavier started 178. And I wouldn't say I'm as good as you... I just had a spur of creativity, is all. icon_wink.gif

/M/: A work-in-progress, I understand, so I won't grade too harshly... but the palette really isn't very saturated at all... it's almost as if you're viewing it through foggy glass. I also like how you tried to make the mountains more organic, but it didn't really turn out well... I can spot a few height and tile errors in their. I say, stick the the LttP style with those.

Ebola, those stairs look really out of place to me, but you got the vote regardless.

Colorwise, or stylewise? Colors are an easy fix, but style... a slightly harder fix.

Yeah the palette + mountains suck (only graphics that is use correctly, the trees can't be used incorrectly.), I made this screen in a minute. I just wanted some suggestions on things I could add or remove, such as the mountain tiles. a WIP tileset is actually a good idea for SoTW, since SoTW is mostly to get criticism, you'll know what to change before you finish it. I've also started yet another WIP palette, though it doesn't really look the same as the first.

Before I get someone saying "Its too dark now!", it doesn't look dark in ZC, so its fine as it is.

Ah man, that comment's annoying, I got it a lot on my first SotW I ever won, if anyone remembers... LINK icon_razz.gif

Anyway, onto C&C...


Trimaster: Extremely well designed and well thought of dungeon shot, the only true problem I have with it is that NOTHING'S NEW! It's all the stuff you normally see in Pure besides the chu jellies. Bring something new, something awesome into the shot, and I'd vote for it...

The Satellite: Pretty good, cept, I suggest you either go with LttP sized trees, or Oracle sized trees, they honestly don't look good together in my opinion, too much clashing style.

Evan the Great: Lesee, what makes people take your vote... palette... purty trees... see, you're actually doing something good with nintendo's graphics something new, the only thing I don't like about it is your darkest blue is too... blue... I suggest you take a little blue from it, and add a little green.

Ebola Zaire: Are we seeing a trend now? 4 people using those mountains? Cuz they are good mountains... anyway those mountains fit the style of that shot than those oracle mountains did. Good job.

/M/: Great shot, but the palette kinda... is like BLAM! WHITE! I dunno, I suggest you add a little more contrast from the darker to lighter colors or something, kinda like the shot with the palette you just made, but brighter.

With that all said and done, Ebola Zaire gets my vote.

The two on the left colorwise, that one on the right may be another story, if it's leading up to a dungeon entrance it's probably ok though.
I would think the people building the stairs would use materials at hand, so it would be more like they would carve them out of the same stone as the mountains are. icon_wink.gif

I like /M/'s style. The other shots are good, but I like uniqueness the most, as long as it's used well.
