Aslion gets my vote. It's easily the best of the bunch, with good design and nice use of tiles.

Goriya - Nice idea, but the realistic moon kind of clashes with the rest of it.

Franky - Maybe it's just me, but it seems too symmetrical. I don't really care much for the tileset either, it just seems kind of weird. But the design itself seems fine.

Aslion - I don't know why but those cliff formations at the bottom left and right corners of the screen seem really strange to me, but otherwise the shot's pretty well-designed and got my vote.

Added reviews.

Goriya: Looks good, not the best design but it does have some uniqueness and the tiles are used somewhat properly without any real errors. *votes*

Franky: Never been a fan of those graphics. Design is a bit symmetrical.

Aslion: Cool concept, those mountains create weird perspective which throws off everything.

Alison wins the sexiest shot of the week award from yours truly. Love the feel of the screen; though, the mountain transitions are a little funky. Doesn't really diminish the shots beauty.

Good job icon_thumbsup.gif

Aslion gets my vote, too. It's a very nicely framed screen, and I'm loving the greyscale and the subscreen, too. Perspective on the mountains looks a little odd to me, but not enough to drag down the screen overall. There's a lot going on, and it just looks nice!

Franky: I love this! It's from FF Adventure, right? I haven't played that game in ages, but recognize some of the tiles from FF Legend, and I assume the games shared some graphics. FFL was one of the first rpg's I played, and I love the nostalgic look of your old school rpg tileset. The screen is a little too symmetrical for my tastes, but I'd love to see some more like it.

Goriya: That's a nice looking moon. It looks cool, but I think the overall presentation's a little plain. There's not much in the way of tile variety. There's something to be said for simplicity, but I think this is a little too simple.

Great job, everyone!

Goriya - It's pretty bush league. Simple ideas are fine, but this doesn't stretch far on the effort scale.

Franky - These graphics don't give much sense of a third dimension. The design is okay.

Aslion - A well detailed shot mixed with a little Taylor Swift. Voted.

I vote for Aslion.

Goriya's is a nice start. I love the concept of starry skies in the distance. The issue is that the foreground is completely bland and simply too bright for a night-time setting.

All I see in Franky's is flat, murky colors. Not really my style.

Aslion's is a little busy but clearly shows a lot of effort. Like others have said, the perspective on the New 1st mountains is confusing. Despite this, it's the best composed shot of the bunch.

Goriya and Frankie

Alison gets my vote though that waterfall perspective looks weird.

I voted for Aslion because I really wanted to vote for Goriya but he's the underdog and I really don't agree with Franky's policies so I made a compromise first-past-the-post ftw.

It's just the depth detection issues they have setup like that, as did the Classic Mountains, hence when you do things like what you did in the bottom right, it looks awkward. That said, I believe the GBC Zelda games did have mountain tiles that allowed for better depth perception (since that's where those mountain tiles DID originate from after all), and could be appended and recolored accordingly.
