I'm Voting for LostinHyru1e.

LostinHyru1e: Although that screen is not one of your best screens, it still barely gets my vote.

Nuvo: Too checkery. Looks pretty confusing. Although I do like the trees and stuff.

ZeeLiam: Too empty and plain.

Pretty Disappointing this week. icon_shrug.gif

Wow, that sure helps all of our self-esteem. Sorry, but right now, that comment sounds oh so annoyingly elitist.
EDIT: Sorry for that, this is how I get every time I enter SotW, it always gets me frustrated when I spend such a long time on making custom graphics, editing palettes, to be beaten by a screenshot made of presets(No offense to you LiH, your screenshot is excellent)... except for the fact that I'm tied for leader now? Ah well, one of those votes on my shot or mine.

I can understand why you say checkery, so I'll do something about that.

LiH: Your screen is excellently designed.

ZeeLiam: That's actually shaped pretty well. A little bit more color, such as brown mountains, it will look even better.

Went for Nuvo cause for custom graphics they are sure impressive and I like the general layout of the screen. JPEGs suck though, so much detail and stuff in here though that it's kinda hard to tell but it's still noticeable.

Maybe it's cause whenever I see a JPEG I puke, but LIH really has something that I don't really like, but I can't put my finger on it. Anyways, just remember JPEGs = horrid ZC shots.

Also, ZeeLiam, I see a mock up! While I really don't have to much room to talk cause I made a mock up once, but that's just cause I really didn't feel like setting up the character and enemy sprites for a new tileset. icon_razz.gif
But come on man! It's classic, it's already all setup. I mean, you didn't even open up ZC, and just cropped a ZQ pic (Don't kill me if that's not true, I'm going off the stuff at the very top of the pic that looks like the bottom of the top menu bar in ZQ.) Other than that the shot's ok, I mean, it's fairly bland and kinda unexciting by nature. It's not the worst shot ever, actually is quite a good shot for classic, but I don't see it being SotW worthy. :\

Also same goes for you, and I'll just say something Evile once told me. "If you post ZC pics and they're a JPEG, you have a 50% chance of being ganged raped the next day."

All JPEGs today? Wow, this is like...one of my biggest pet peeves in anything ZC...

Wow, my shot is a JPEG?! I could've sworn I set ZC's snapshot format to PNG. That's how it was a second ago... must have switched back... or maybe Photobucket is now switching both BMP's, and PNG's to JPEG, that would be annoying.

Here's an update to the shot... in PNG form, I'm still working on the tile flooring, it's gonna need to lose a bit of unnecessary detail. They'll also probably shrink to 8x8 tiles... I might even make them hexagons.

I like Nuvo's shot, but it's a little too confusing, the graphics look a bit weird.

ZeeLiam- glad to see you on here, little bro. icon_biggrin.gif Actually pretty well designed for Classic, keep practicing and you'll get better and better with every screen.

I'm gonna let you in on a little secret. Almost every single shot I've ever entered in SoTW(and that's probably around 15) has done that, including this one. All of the ones that don't have a subscreen are really just cropped ZQuest shots. icon_biggrin.gif It's just so much easier to get the action in the "right" places, then trying to take a moving shot in ZC. I want to have stuff going on, but I don't want it to be as random as it would be if I took it in ZC.

LiH: This was really well designed 'nuff said. Got my vote.
Nuvo: A little confusing, but you almost had me with the awesome trees!
Zeeliam: Great for classic tileset, but it's like night and day compared to LiH's screen.

gray0x.... if it wasn't for that ugly palette... so I'm going for Nuvo... why? Cause it's good... and it reminds me of a ceratin star wars game for the ps1 that I really enjoyed.

LostInHyrule: Very good. Gets my vote. But once again, why does it say "You're mother" in Spanish? Why is "you're mother" the caption for every one of your screenshots?

Nuvo: Very nice work.

ZeeLiam: I love classic, and that screen design is amazing!

gray0x isn't in this week. >.> But anyways, I voted for Nuvo this week though. IGood setup, and good tiles. LiH has a nice screen, but I can't see dark screens too well at the moment. Zeeliam has a very good first screen. I like the setup of it. Very well made for a classic tileset shot. Good work this week everyone!

I vote for Nuvo because someone else has no idea how to use SD3 grass properly or how to submit a GIF... I'm fine with Nuvo's because at least I can clearly see the shot.

Since when am I involved? :O
You know I would never make a shot with that palette or straight lines like that. Or am I the Classic shot? bleghghdklfs

I nulled. Nuvo's would of got my vote but it's too confusing.
