Is that mountain ascending above the clouds? And how's it support a forest and interest in gardening larger than on the surface? You shot makes no sense, I voted for Migo.

Where are all of the enemies? Link thought as he trekked through the Ingro Fields. Wait, Ingro Fields? This can't be the Pearl Of Shadows! Zeeb must be making a new quest along with it!

I'm voting for Majora this week.

jimmyb - Just add more grass detail.

Lithium - It doesn't look that special to me.

Migo - I've seen that shot so many times, go for something new.

MW - This would've been my second place vote.

ZS - Wait, why did MW submit again? Oh, this is ZS's shot. Your shot reminds me a lot of MW's style.

Yes, YOU have... the only way other people could have seen it, are if they've studied my map. icon_biggrin.gif
It's also got some new details in it... so... meh...
either way, it's a good screen, except fro the lock block too close to the side... but sometimes, you've gotta do hat you've gotta do. :/

MW - My vote would go here. Excellent design, nice colors, etc. 8/10

ZS - It's an overall bad shot, and on top of that it's a jpg. There's nothing going on. Everything's too green and straight. Please don't use GB. 4/10

Is my shot really that bad? *Sigh.* At least it's not over detailed like some shots I've seen...

Migo, I have a suggestion, maybe you should add water effects to the seagull in the water. While I was beta testing your demo, I always think that the seagull was levitating in the air.

Hmm... I believe that would be classified as a bug... as I somehow didn't notice it before... Where are my beta testers?! xD
Thanks Tri, I'll fix it.

jimmyb- nice screen design and love the village 8/10.

Lithium- sorry it doesnt look that that special to me but like i said love the grayscale palletes 6/10.

Majora- Nice battle screen but its really not that interesting to me 4/10.

Migo - love the shot , love the hatless link and absolutely the detail on it and the parrot in the lake 9/10

MoonWhisper My vote would go here of course i think it shows excellent use of the EGBZ tileset , love the detail, pirates under the sand, crabs , summer pallete , basically everything 10/10.

ZebraStallion ummm nice screen design but where are the enemies and ummm the screen looks kind of squared and if your going to use that blue tree or purple tree dont just put 1 put at least 2 or 3, it makes the screen look really and colorful =) 5/10.

I vote for MoonWhisper good job! icon_thumbsup.gif

I really fail to see how ZS is similar to my style... I'm pretty sure I know my own style. Flattery won't get you anywhere, Dawnlight. I'm not one to leave that much plain green on the screen, either... I really don't like the road tiles, and you need to edit the mountain tiles to make 'em better, honestly, as keeping them the way they are just puts too much green on the screen. And the JPGness kills it as well.

Really tough choice, all of them are nice. But, seeing as how its Z3, going for Moonwhisper.

Well if that comment insulted you then my apologies.

Yeah I can see what you mean. I see that you a lot more colors in your GB shots plus you add extra stuff so it doesn't look plain .

jimmyb:7/10
Good shot. I'd recommend some more skillful object placement on the southern edge, but it's a nice shot otherwise.
Lithium: 6/10
This isn't one of your better shots. icon_confused.gif It feels rather empty and monotonous, like you could have done something more the the cliffs or clouds...
Majora: 5/10
It's ripped graphics. Having ripped/recolored some higher resolution graphics myself, I know that it's not easy, but I can't vote on a screen that has no design factor. By the way, that subscreen is really, really distracting.
Migokalle: 8/10
Great screen, although the style is a little bit stale... make more areas! icon_razz.gif
Moonwhisper: 8/10
Good screen- the mountains are straight, but it flows well. Nicely done, but I've gotta question the placement of the stone structure. Having it just off the corner of the screen is not conducive to gameplay.
ZebraStallion: 7/10
Good shot, but nothing really screams out. Just a little above average GB screen.

All in all, I had to go with Moonwhisper, because I think his shot is less stale than Migokalle's entry. Nice week everyone.

I'm amazed how there is a rough alternation on a per-3 week (or so, varies) basis between voting on a shot based on who made it and/or the pretty colors, and voting based on actual design... guess I must've picked a bad week to enter xD
