For centuries, many have looked upon the world and decided to display their view of it through art. Every fandom has people who create art for what they enjoy, and I know from experience that there are many talented Zelda fan artists out there. Now, I’m calling you to come, do whatever you may do as an artist, and participate in Zelda Informer’s newest original content series: Artists of Legend! Each week, I will give you a prompt that anyone who desires to participate in will then put into art in the method of their choice. This isn’t just confined to drawing; any form of art will do. You can draw with a pencil and paper, paint on a canvas, make pixel art on a computer, weave, carve, create the scene with Zelda figurines, even do metal work if that’s your thing. Go crazy! The following week, I will share the pictures I thought were best done and who submitted them, as well as give another prompt. Some of the best art will even be shared directly on Zelda Informer’s Facebook and Twitter. This week, I’ll start by asking you to portray Link drawing the Master Sword from its pedestal. Any Link in any environment will do, as long as you stick to the main theme.
Here are the rules for the contest:
- Keep things clean. Zelda Informer should be safe for all ages, so don’t go creating foul images or anything NSFW.
- Stick to the main idea, but feel free to be creative with it. If you want to draw a specific scene from one of the games, go ahead; if you want to come up with something similar to a scene from one of the games with a twist on it, that’s great too.
- Any form of art is acceptable as long as it somehow displays the mentioned scene.
- Do not steal art from someone else. I will be checking every submission I receive.
- Do not insult other people’s art. Peaceful critiques and thoughts are one thing; direct insults are another.
- There’s no pressure, so just have fun!
I look forward to seeing what you guys create, and I’ll see you all next week!
