The trees are grey-ish because of ash. :)

Did someone call for filler screenshot?

Apparently growing bushes is the Mad Axeman's way of making up for chopping down trees.

Voted for Joelmacool. Another fine example of classic tileset usage.

 

I was almost considering a vote for Lut, but I believe the biggest drawback is how the palette makes the SD3 grass look discolored.

I don't know what it is, but Lut's 'shot is one of the most natural looking screens I've ever seen in Zelda Classic. Like, it looks like it could exist here on Earth. Very pretty, and cozy-feeling. I voted here.

Joel--nice work on this... reminds me of an eldin volcano from the NES era! very well done details with the lava falls and whatnot.

Moosh--it's nice but i think its a lil plain. feels a little unnaturally still if ya catch mt drift.

Lut-- i feel like the tile set is nice but it also feels like its a bit too busy. there is a good flow it just feels a little noisy.

My vote went to Joelmacool. Lut is a close second!

Joelmacool - Not bad at all. I really like the effect of making trees all grey because of ash, that's a very neat touch. The screen itself is nicely made and definitely fits a volcanic setting. Nice job.

 

Moosh - Pretty nice shot. I like the tiles you used here which has to make me ask, what tileset is this? I do feel some parts of the ground could use a little more detail since it seems kinda empty in some places, but good job anyway.

 

Lut - I really like the idea of this shot, and it looks really cool too. Though I'm not very sold on the palette here. Something about the grass colours just doesn't look right to me, though everything else is fine.

 

I voted for Joel this week with either Moosh or Lut in close second.

I actually thought "nice, those trees look ash-covered" before I even read Joel's caption. I also like your way of adding extra detail using corner tiles, like the crevices in the rocks and stuff, I've seen you do that a lot and it always looks really good.

Oh and uh, Moosh you're giving me a flashback to like 25 years ago, how are you doing that? Those tiles look so familiar.

the biggest drawback is how the palette makes the SD3 grass look discolored.

So that's where the grass is from.

Well, to both your points...

Though I'm not very sold on the palette here. Something about the grass colours just doesn't look right to me, though everything else is fine.

...not that I disagree, but I didn't actually make any of these palettes.

Yeah, the set comes with a massive load of palettes, but a lot of them are washed out - I mean, at least half of them remind me of looking at a late '90s laptop screen, so those were easy to eliminate. Other options I eliminated due to bad contrast - their "shadows" were brighter than some of the darker colors, and it was pretty awkward seeing deep-blue or green tree leaves with shadows twice as bright beneath them. Still others didn't have good color variety at all, and anything besides green trees/bushes looked awkward or indistinct, so goodbye garden variety. Some had saturation boosted to 150%. Then there was that other one that was generally OK... except for the purple water.

So I ended up here with the same thought: everything else looks fine - the grass is the only casualty. And honestly, after looking at it for a day or two, I got used to it.

It was just a test anyway. I only cracked DoR open for the first time about 2 weeks ago to see how it was organized, then I got carried away and ended up with this. Result was nice though. You know, I used to see Tree's shots and maps, and think I'd never touch that league, then MrPow's last 2 wins made me consider attempting a DoR screen, so this...

I don't know what it is, but Lut's 'shot is one of the most natural looking screens I've ever seen in Zelda Classic. Like, it looks like it could exist here on Earth. Very pretty, and cozy-feeling. I voted here.

...is the best comment I could hope for. Thanks :)

Yeah, I knew that you didn't make the palette, I've seen this used in other places before :P I do think a different palette might have suited the screen more though, but that's up to you (and I'm no palette expert so I dunno what would be good to begin with lol)

The trees, grass, and water are from Ys. The mountains are my own. I'm really fond of this series, so I started assembling a tileset based on the NES ports, since NES is easiest to work with. Chances are it's just another boredom killer that'll never be finished, but who knows.

J- Sure, blame it on the Pokemon trainer.

I like the layout, but there's a lot of style clash with the graphics.

 

M-Zelda golf? It's time to hit the links.

 

L-The color on those peahats makes them look like flying bomb flowers, that would make a cool enemy!

And yet people keep using it for some reason. And the style clash jimmies keep getting rustled anew. It's great. :D

Your comments about it feeling unnaturally still are duly noted. I think the problem is that I didn't post the screen in an animated gif format. I've amended this and also completely redesigned everything about the screen. Not so still when everything's moving about is it!? How do you like me now!? YOU STILL GONNA CALL MY SCREENSHOT UNNATURALLY STILL!?!?! :P

Moosh gets my vote for how atmospheric it looks. You guys are stepping it up with your screens I'm impressed yo. Nobody really had any flaws here, I basically chose my vote for Moosh because it looked the most atmospheric to me.
