We had a great turnout this year, and the quality of shots here is great! Remember that voting will end early on Friday, December 25. That being said, on with the contest!

Ahhh, there's no place like home for the holidays... even if that home is secluded in a dangerous mountain range.

Happy Holidays everyone! And watch out for snowballs!

The best gifts are those that can't be bought.

All the Hylians down in Hyrule liked Christmas a lot. But Ganon, who lived just North of Hyrule, did not. "Fah-who-fore-ey, Dah-who-dore-eh, Welcome, Christmas come this way."

The dry, biting wind sang a mournful song as it echoed through the valley. Even the hero found himself chilled to the soul, as if an unearthly presence descended upon him...

I like them all! Too bad you can only vote for one.

All of them exhibit a screen design that is tasteful and pleasing to the eyes. They are neither too boring nor too over the top, and they all stick to the Christmas and/or Winter Spirit. It also goes to show that there is more than one right way to eat a Reeses. Um, I mean, more than one right palette.

Out of 10 ratings:
LostInHyrule - 7/10
Sheik - 8/10
Silver - 7/10
Rem - 7/10
Ebola Zaire - 7/10

My gameball goes to Sheik. It really wins on personality, and has a great sense of humor to it without the need for words. Rarely do we get to see that in a screenshot. It certainly isn't a requirement, but it is one of those things that can be great to see when it comes around. It also looks like it would be really fun to play.

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! (Well, a bit early but I felt like.)

Ebola, can you edit the 'Caption:' out under my screen? I bugs me :l No big deal, though. Thanks. I nulled, by the way, since I am in the poll. You all know that attitude on mine already, so yeah.
These shots are great but I must admit that I would've loved to see screens from other screen-designers, too. So I am a bit disappointed, but only a bit. We'll see what next week brings, won't we?

LostInHyrule: Solid GB-screen. There is an error with the mountains in the top right cornor, though.
Sheik: Ugly snowball custom tiles.
Silver: The brown looks kinda out of place. I... dunno. Other than that and some open cornors it's good none the less.
Rem: I would've loved to see more of the GB-trees on the sides. But it has the greatest Christmas-feeling out of all.
EbolaZaire: Is this a custom palette? I love it. Do you mind if I use it sometime? It's a great GB-screen but the BS-borders and the high quality ice-tiles just don't go for me.

That's it from me.

Since its actually a palette I adapted from DoR (and therefore not mine), you can use it, but I had to edit a lot of the tiles that use brown to get it to work right.

Thank you very much. This will come in handy... However, good idea to take DoR palettes and edit them to the needs of GB. I wonder why I never got that idea.

On a normal week, would've voted for Ebola Zaire. However, it's only barely Christmas-y, and Sheik's shot beats it out in personality tenfold. I nulled since I entered, but I would've voted for Sheik.

Best of luck to all entrants!

LostInHyru1e: Superior design wins here. *votes*
Sheik: Really made me laugh. Link is so dead!
Silver: A very solid screen. It's not bad or anything (actually, it's pretty good), it's just not as good as some of the others.
Rem: Best caption of the week. icon_razz.gif
Ebola: Pretty good, but it really doesn't remind me of Christmas much.

Congrats to everybody! You all did excellently.

Yeah, I guess I might've taken too much of a risk with mine by making the palette like it was. My intent was to make it a little bit like a different side of the season, where it's just bitter cold and dreary with no snow. I definitely think that Sheik has the best shot this week and would have voted there had I not nulled. It's very creative (snowball fight ftw!) and the screen design is great. icon_clap.gif Well done. I also think that LostInHyrule had an excellent entry, but the palette is a little bit to contrasted for me.

Hmmm. I disagree. I mean, if I had entered this, and was to show you my representation of Christmas, I would have shown you what Christmas I like over here. That means it is the middle of summer. It is scorching hot having lunch in often 40 degree Celsius (over 100 degree Fahrenheit) heat. There ain't no snow here, thats for sure. My shot would have been comprised of people down the river or the beach, having a barbecue. icon_wink.gif

I guess what I'm trying to say is that Christmas means many things to many people, not just snowballs, presents and ham.

Between LIH and Ebola, I chose Ebola's shot for one reason. It reminds me so much of my tileset, Simplicity (I know its GBC...but meh). Not accusing, but dang the shot looks so nice, and inspires a new palette for me.

Lol yeah I go down the beach for a BBQ and a swim at Christmas. Voted for Sheik its the not the most Christmas-y (Rem's is first Sheik's close to second) but most creative icon_thumbsup.gif.
