Awesome round, I like all of these screens a lot.


FireSeraphim: I like what you are doing with those bigger trees, the small ones are certainly not as impressive. The whole atmosphere is pulled off very well and these graphics are very nice. However, I feel you are missing a chance by not doing more with the transparent foliage, you could have much more detail with it. I also think there is too few vegetation for a distant and unexplored part of the forest, you'd expect that part to be much harder to travel through because of the trees and bushes. Anyway, I like where you are going with this screen.


Zaxaphone: While you weren't very creative with the whole screen design, this was obviously intentional for the battle taking place there. In that sense, the screen is well designed, but think it kind off lacks the interesting look a SotW screen needs. I really like the flooring here and the BS walls are always sweet. Those blocks clash a little with their thick border, I think, but it's good overall.


Joel: I like how you bring the overworld into a dungeon with this screen, but I'm unsure about the classic trees in this context. The other graphics are much more detailed and thus they clash a lot. But this screen design is great and I like how all elements with together real nicely. This would've gotten my vote if not for the trees, I think.


But I've voted for Sheik. That's a really nice design and the graphical style is pleasing. This might be useless advice, but I feel you need to be more careful with the shading of some of the graphics. Some of the shading is far more detailed than the original BS graphics. But, things don't clash and it's still an awesome screen.

FireSeraphim - Pretty unique screen you have here, the large trees look very cool. The mix of FYS and custom tiles is also very interesting and works quite nicely.


Sheik - Wow this looks awesome. Definitely fits the desert theme very well and I really like those poles. I assume those were inspired by OoT. Really good effort here.


Zaxaphone - I like the mix of dungeon/overworld tiles here and the palette looks quite nice. I never actually noticed this at first but the walls at the top and bottom are actually done wrong. The middle parts are fine, but to the sides don't look quite right. Take a look here for a comparison. I probably would've told you earlier but I never noticed until now lol. Good effort anyway.


Joelmacool - e. I definitely like the overall structure of this screen, everything works very nicely. I really like the forest/swamp theme you're going for here, and that subscreen looks very nice and clean.


I voted for Sheik this week, but definitely a good contest.

Really nice stuff this week everyone!


Random notes: In Fire's screen, the tektite looks like one of the newer headcrabs in HL2. Great flavor/vibe Sheik. Zaxarone's moldorms look great, very alien and creepy. Nice Woodfall vibes Joel.


Layout-wise I'd have to vote for Fire or Sheik, but can't make the choice.

RIP sotw screens right now. They're not showing.


Glad I already voted (for Sheik, though I can't explain why) :D
