Sheik's is the boldest, most refreshing shot in my opinion.

Mosquitos are the worst though!

 

That is what he's attacking, right?

Something about Anthus's screen really speaks to me this week. Despite the awkward mix of different styles and perspectives going on, I just had to vote for it.

Moosh- I think Anthus's shot transmits a lot of character. The ponderous mountains make you examine the screen at a slower pace. And the guy facing away doing a solitary activity helps this I think. The screen is essentially one of transit, a place connecting other places, but the guy and the mountains get you to slow down and more carefully examine what is happening. Thee reference to Spring compliments this. I am tired and don't know what I am talking about : P

I like Sheik's a lot, despite the awkward frame where Link's hand reaches out before the sword gets there (maybe he's using the Force). I know that's just part of ZC so it's not really a drawback. Nice topography on Anthus' but the palette is not to my taste. Dimentio's is demented, which made me laugh, but it's  a nice use of castle elements, and the distant trees are GB epic (voted).

I really like Sheik and Anthus' screens, but the bland colors in Anthus' shot bring it down a bit for me despite the design overall being really good.

 

Still voted for Anthus though.

@Anthus: May I suggest that you make the colors on the armos statues a lot darker? They almost blend with the ground color and given they are significant interactive objects the player should be given a chance to tell them apart. Simply darkening the particular set of browns involved should suffice. Maybe like this:

He's not attacking anything, he threw his sword in the air and it hit his head. This is clearly pictured:

Sheik - An absolutely beautiful screen. I really love the bright colours and the tiles used, makes the screen look nice.

 

Anthus - Looks pretty interesting. The mountains seem to be used kinda strangely and incorrectly in places, but generally it looks nice. The style clash of classic and BS looks a bit odd, but it's not too bad to look at.

 

Dimentio - Not bad at all, the screen looks pretty nice. It does seem a little weird for the sun to be so high in the sky when the area looks so dark, but besides that it looks like quite a solid screen.

 

I voted for Sheik this week.

I love Dimentio's screen. It's the most unique and aesthetically pleasing to me. And that sun in the background wins it for me too. The background scenery is the best part of this for me.
