Why not?

Magical Rod. Magical Book. Makeshift Umbrella.

Link visits the place where the fairies rescued him.

Hmm... I see trees, a cave, and ... WATER.

The room above will decide whether Link saves Horodrum.

The screen design in Shoelace's most reminded me of professional design, so my vote goes to him.

Graphics are good all around.


TMS: If you had some enemies and action, it may have taken my eyes away from the bottom half of the screen, which is very repetitive, break up some repetition, if you simply just need a single tree cluster of 4 trees, do it, that would be better, then you'd have room for more details in other parts of the screen. Like, you could put a rock formation, or huge boulder in the bottom right side of the screen.

Zemious: Biggest link isn't the best link, graphically, he is excellent, height and stylistically, no. I suggest making him 4-12 pixels shorter, so he is taller than 16x16, but not huge.

I'm voting for Moonwhisper

gray0x - All I see is a house. That's pretty much it. icon_shrug.gif

Moonwhisper - This by far, has the best design, but I don't really like the brown clashing with the green. :vote:

Shoelace - Great Shot, but I've seen this before on your YouTube video.

TMS: The ground detail could have been better. Repetitive use of Mini ALTTP Trees.

Zeromus - Link needs to grow down. It's like he's wearing the giant's mask!

Oh, and TMS, I would recommend that you only use the plain grass tile for the layout itself of the screen, but I would recommend that you not use it, fill it up with more detailed grass, which I know you have.

Also, Classic is awesome.

Voted for Shoelace.

Gray0x- Ground detail is a little lacking, and the shadows make the trees underneath look bleh. Not a bad screen, but nothing special.

Moonwhisper- Beautiful, beautiful shot, I almost voted here. Probably the best shot I've ever seen in Classic, no joke. The one thing that really marred the screen is the random brown tiles in the top-right and random green ones in the bottom left. The mixture is good, but it looks a little too random.

Shoelace- Here's where my vote goes, I just cannot wait for Eye of the Moon. I love the graphics and the game promises to be great. I don't like this shot as much as a lot of other shots from EoTM(this one's ground detail looks a little mediocre) but I love the water and the mountains tons. SHOW US LINK'S FACE!!! icon_wink.gif

TheMasterSwordsman- The ground detail is pretty bad and I don't get the design. It's not bad design, but it's not really special enough to make the screen worthy of a SoTW.

Zemious- I like the graphics and the sprite, but it's really nothing too special as far as design, action or detail goes.

Moonwhisper all the way. Classic forever, baby. icon_slycool.gif

Shoelace's looked too overdone. It's hard for me to explain what I mean by that... It's as if this screenshot was made specifically to trump SotW. Also I don't like Link when he's bigger than 16x16.

gray0x is just... eww, there's something I don't like here. The shade of green he used is just sickly.

TMS's is awesome, except for that there's solid objects too close to the border and not also on the border. Always offer two adjacent squares of non-solidity on all screen exits, never just one. Also there's too much green for me to handle, though not as much as gray0x. icon_dead.gif

Zem's is almost perfect, and definitely my second favorite. But 16x32 Link is just... no. icon_sweat.gif

So yeah, Moonwhisper wins. And yes I'm a harsh judge. Sue me, I dare you. My lawyer will be Phoenix Wright. icon_kawaii.gif

gray0x: Nice!
Moonwhisper: I love classic! Almost got my vote.
Shoelace: Impressive. Almost got my vote. Now show us Link's face already!
TMS: Good design, but it needs some tree variety. Although it wins for caption. icon_wink.gif
Zemious: Nice screen, very good, but not SotW worthy.

I couldn't decide between Moonwhisper and Shoelace, so I nulled.

gray0x me
terrible forest shot

Moonwhisper 2
good shot, pretty gimmick-y though.

Shoelace 1

TheMasterSwordsman 4
Terrible shot, don't know how to describe it. Very repetitive.

Zemious 3

It's a basic dungeon shot with Link.

I voted for Shoelace, with Zemious coming in a VERY close second. I don't think any of the other shots this week can compare with either of those.

Yeah, I know I don't really show off screens of my game that often. And yeah, if you seen my Zelda video, I had a clip of the EotM and that was one of places it showed. But I did add a few things in it.

And I always have a reason for posting a screenshot. This time was to show off one of the most important places in the game. You can't tell by looking at it but a major event takes place and well... I won't say anymore as I want for everything to be a surprise. XD

And yeah that is the question. When will Shoelace show Link's face?

...You're hiding his face on purpose? icon_blink.gif

Awkay, NOW you got me curious. Great, just great. Curious + coffee = Schwa does his Tazmanian Devil act. icon_dead.gif Come to think of it, I know virtually nothing about Eye of the Moon, even though it's supposedly a huge quest in the works...

How much would we have to flatter you for you to give us a hint, Shoes? icon_love.gif

Moonwhisper. I've never seen the Classic set being used like that.
