Lithium - I don't care what everybody else says, this shot sucks.

jimmyb - I dunno. Maybe cause it's 6AM, but I can't decide if it's good or not. Very different.

Majora - Ripped graphics :O

TMS - It's still a bad classic shot. There's nothing to it at all that makes it sotw-worthy. The mountains are awkward, the waterfall tiles look terrible going down them. There's no custom pallet, the ladders are blue, which only seems to make sense at all going over water. etc.

I nulled.

If I wasn't in it, I probably would have gone with Majora's. Please don't be too harsh on me, it's my first SotW icon_confused.gif . But constructive critisism is welcome.

I haven't seen that before. :O
Tile aligning is cool, it's somehow circle-ish without the center of the circle being empty. I don't know why I don't hate grayscale now. But oh well, this is for the good of society.
MC DoR. Those tiles that I don't acknowledge as default DoR in this screen are great additions. The design is good, but the sides somehow feel lifeless... like the center sucking the colour out from the peripheral areas...
Cave Story, err I mean Sky Story. Very beautiful for the eye, but it's just eye-candy.
Very nice Classic design. 3-4 years ago you would have been awed. But the nowadays modern player things it's not enough "colourful".

I voted: jimmyb

Well, Majora's shot was pretty tempting, but, it's only ripped graphics, sorry. icon_sorry.gif
So, I'm going to vote for Jimmyb. It's a pretty good usage of the DoR tileset.

Ripping graphics takes more effort than using a pre-made tileset. icon_eyebrow.gif
I'll post my rankings when I'm not in the middle of taking AP Gov notes.

gray0x - 7/10
Detail is pretty good. I like it.

jimmyb - 6/10
Not bad, but the coastlines and ledges look a little awkward.

Majora - 6/10
Nice tiles and concept, but there isn't all that much to look at either. So it's good, but not great.

TMS - 6/10
For classic's standard, this is a decent amount of detail, although not among the best.

My gameball goes to gray0x this week.

I'm pretty sure I've commented on this before, but if not, here I go.
The overall design and detail is good, and feels very open. Though it doesn't seem like much is happening.

The design is really good, but the sides could use a little more detail. Maybe a bit more in the water, but overall it lookspretty good.

This is a really nicely done shot. I really like the overall detail, and the tiles themselves look really good. Despite the fact that there's no enemies, it still seems like something is happening, even if it is just Link starring into the sky. *Vote*

Interesting use of the classic set. I like how the screen looks, and is designed pretty well. Though the ground seems a little bleh. I would add something to it.

Very good screens this week. icon_biggrin.gif

My responses to everyone's (so far) responses:

gray0x: Indeed :O
jimmyb: Thanks. And for your first SotW that shot is pretty good.
ChastChaos: well, remember that Helmasaur King shot you entered? icon_rolleyes.gif
Lord Ike: I hope not D: I doubt it since I'm not making any money icon_razz.gif
HeavyTitanium: Oy, Cave Story Palettes are a real B**** to work with >_<
Ebola: Thanks, wonder what order your list will be in :o
Nathaniel: Your comment was pretty straightforward and stuff, so I have no qualms with it. icon_razz.gif
Lemon: Indeed xD

I voted for TheMasterSwordsman.

Lithium (aka gray0x) - It's a nice shot, but it just didn't catch my eye to me.

jimmyb - Its pretty good but I just don't like your use of mountains. Also, your mountain geometry is inaccurate.

Majora - I just don't consider this shot as great. To me it looks like one big background with Link stuck into it. Although it does look nice in a quest. At least its styles fit nicely. icon_smile.gif

TheMasterSwordsman - I had to go with this shot. It shows that you can't judge a tileset by its looks.

ChastChaos: well, remember that Helmasaur King shot you entered?

Yes, it was hard work with ripping, tiered secrets and combo cycling. Not a passing through eyecandy screen. Now if a Cave Story custom boss was on your screen, my vote could have been different, if you get what I mean.
