Sheik: Excellent dungeon entrance. It really makes me wonder what could be inside. MacGyvering cave entrances into decorative columns was a smart choice, and the two columns of sky give a great sense of height. One thing that could possibly be changed is the roofing, which might look better slightly varied as long as it's not too cluttered and doesn't overcomplicate the screen. Voted.

Shoshon: The room is well-shaped, and looks like it would be part of a fun dungeon to explore. That said, I do not like the walls used and especially not the door shape, which lacks perspective. The ground objects are a bit confusing; it took me a while to identify the mine carts, and I still do not know what the oval tiles are supposed to represent. I'm digging the use of mountain tiles as roofing, and I think the floor color is a nice contrast from the wall, although I'd might want to dim the orange in the palette a little bit.

Edit: It's a small gripe but I've also noticed a lack of light sources in the room. A torch or two would complete the screen, and if you're feeling particularly creative you could potentially design a glowing crystal and layer a transparent light circle around it.

A very tough competition between Sheik and Spawn this time around.


Sadly Shoshon's screen doesn't compare to those two, since, to me, the custom tiles aren't the best. They could be drastically improved and I feel that it looks way too mediocre.


Sheik's screen is spectacular. It's brilliantly coloured and layed out really well for an entrance. Though, I don't like how the cave holes cut off halfway (maybe means something?) and I don't like the repetition of the same stone used on top of the mountain.

Spawn's screen looks very natural and calming to look at.While to me I would state that there is a lot going on, I find that this reinforces the screen and makes it much more pleasing to look at. I love the contrast of overworld and dungeon, and I find that by adding mountain tiles into the dungeon adds a layer of depth. Very good screen, voted here.

Damn Sheik, that's beautiful! Reminds me of the entrance to the Grail's resting place in Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade.


The grassy overgrowth is lovely Spawn, feels very unique to me. I don't recognize your name from other SotW's so welcome if you're new.


I assume those are baskets of gems Shoshon, I like the color they add. My only complaint is the wide stripes on the walls could use some color editing, I like the thin orange stripes but would slightly shift the wide stripe away from the yellow-greenish tint towards a bluish-purple tint. Very slightly. I could complain about the ceiling looking like a wall, but I don't think it's a big deal.


I'm torn between Sheik and Spawn. Sheik's is such an creative use of existing tiles, and I love the colors, while Spawn's feels lush and alive... Sheik barely gets my vote


Great week!
