Hello again, everyone! Welcome back to Artists of Legend! Have you enjoyed Linktober this year? Unfortunately, this is the last week where we’re specifically focusing on Linktober. But that doesn’t mean that the effects of Linktober will not continue for this series, because they definitely will. With all of the Artists of Legend submissions I’ve received thanks to Joel and his team at Linktober, this series is set to thrive!
Now, all this past month, we’ve been partnering with the great folks from Linktober! Every day in October, they have been offering Zelda themed art prompts to get your creativity flowing. Even though October is now through, you should still go check out their Twitter and Instagram pages! They’ve been sharing a lot of great artwork, and if you enjoy looking at the artwork we share here, I’m sure you’ll enjoy looking at what’s been there, too! They also have a Discord server that you can join if you’re interested. There, you can talk to myself and some of the fantastic artists who have been contributing to Linktober. The server will also be running and active, so feel free to join if you’d like!
With all of that said, let’s get right into everything!
All this past month, we’ve been taking a break from our normal prompts, and instead, we’ve been focusing on Linktober submissions that were tagged with #artistsoflegend. Starting this week, we’ll be getting back to some of our own prompts. For now, let’s take a look at twenty fantastic submissions that we’ve gotten in the past week!

I am once again overwhelmed with how fantastic all of your artwork has been, and how much of it that I’ve been getting! Thank you all for your incredible work, and keep it up!
Now, before we get back to our standard prompts, I wanted to give some special thanks to several people who have contributed to this series in the past month in Linktober. These people helped me get submissions, submitted an incredible amount of artwork, and/or sent in some of my favorite artwork from this month. With that said, I would like to thank the following:
Seriously, I’d like to thank each and every one of you. You’ve really helped this series, and I greatly appreciate it.
This Week’s Challenge
Hey, we haven’t had one of these of our own in a while, have we? Well, we’re back to offering challenges of our own. So, with that said – This week, we’d like you to create artwork of your favorite passive creature from The Legend of Zelda. A passive creature is basically just one that doesn’t attack you as the player directly – for example, the foxes or dragons from Breath of the Wild, Cuccoos (most of the time), dogs, whatever!
As always, here are the rules for artwork in this series.
- Keep things clean. Zelda Dungeon should be safe for all ages, so don’t go creating foul images, anything too risque, 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. 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!
- While you can submit your work in the comment section, the preferred methods are putting your work in the comment section here on Zelda Dungeon, or Tweeting or posting on Instagram with #artistsoflegend. It makes it easier for me to find the art when you submit it.
- Do not steal art from someone else.
- Do not insult other people’s art. Peaceful critiques and thoughts are one thing; direct insults are another.
- There’s no pressure. Just have fun!
I look forward to seeing what you guys create this time, and I’ll see you all next week!
