TriMaster got my vote, but if i could vote for 2, i would go with CC's to.

Theryan, your shot looks good, but the blue is way to overpowering. but i guess thats just because you are using the classic version. The bushes dont match the tileset, because they are outlined, if you outlined some of the other stuff, or got rid of the outline, it would look good. good layout though.

Theryan: Nice Classic screen, but... it's underworld or overworld?

TriMaster001: Welcome to Palette of the Week #2.

CastChaos: Better than the last one. LttP fire-zora and aLttP Misery Mire tiles FTW!

EDIT: Wow, one day earlier?

I null'ed this week.

Theryan's is interesting as a concept, those submerged boulders do look nice, but you can't just rip gameboy graphics into Z1 as an attempt to make it look good really icon_unsettled.gif
The styles clash too much. Perhaps if you removed the outlines like PC said they might work better, I don't know.
It looks nice otherwise though.

TriMaster's is the best in my opinion, the palette is very nice and the design of the screen is good, but I think having that many trees really ruins screens.
Admitedly it's hard to get away from using trees as screen borders in Pure, in DoR we have forest brush as a standard, but it's not so commonly used in Pure.
That doesn't mean you should just pack trees up together like that though.
I think it'd look better if you were to leave more gaps within the trees.

Cast Chaos's shot is... interesting.
There are some very nice tiles, those little 'U' shaped brambles look good, and I really like the swamp flower type things, did you draw those?
I think the fact that it's a still frame of a shot with moving rain layered over it doesn't look so good, it just blurs the shot. I take it it'd look better in action.
What are those bits of grass doing on top of the mountains in the middle at the top?
It's too green altogether though really.
Not that you can escape that very easily in a swamp though I suppose.

Theryan: Wonderful looking classic screen!
TriMaster001: Very nice and detailed. The trees are a bit repetitive though. But it's a very nice palette
CastChaos: Very good. Nice screeen detail too.

I can't decide, so I do what I always do when I can't decide. I vote for the one with the classic tileset. Yay Theryan!

Well... CC, what have I said about straight mountains?
MAKE EM GAY! icon_razz.gif
Therefore, I have to choose TriMaster.
It has a fairly good layout and the palette is really cool.
Great.
But I love that you're using my tree, CC icon_razz.gif
Or atleast the one I ripped icon_razz.gif

Joe123: The top part at the middle? There is a cave layered there and there is partly grass in it, then it turns into dirt (when you go in, there will be just cave floor). I had to do this because this way I could made a side warp to the cave. Just because the tile warp is already in use.
The U shaped wines and the swamp plants are ripped from the aLttP set. All I did was recolouring and animating.

Migokalle: Don't say that you didn't vote for me ONLY because the top row of combos... My screen is much bigger than that in all meanings... How would you like the mountains there? The middle part should be more at south? Then I'd need a tile warp for the cave and as I explained above, that I couldn't do. You will see while playing.

Castchaos... Trimaster's shot... the only thing going for it is the palette. The design is BORING, it's center heavy, and not balanced at the corners. So is Castchaos's but not so much. Theryan is second place. The bushes don't really bug me, as they didn't jump out at me like a sore thumb.

Eh..

Sorry, I woke up thinking it was Sunday, my computer calendar said it was Sunday, and I saw that SoTW 190 ended, so I assumed incorrectly. It won't happen again.
