Hey everyone! Welcome back, at the start of a new month! We’ve been enjoying receiving some terrific art submissions lately, and we are excited to continue to share the fruits of your talents here in the Artists of Legend series!
Last Week’s Challenge
Last week, we prompted you to submit art of any undead enemy in the Legend of Zelda franchise for Halloween, and to make your art a little bit creepy if you so chose to. I can say for a fact that you pulled it off! Your submissions were both awesome to behold the talent of, and unnerving to look at for very long. Well done!

I’d like to take a moment to compliment both of you, especially on your attention to detail. Well done!
The Next Challenge
It was more difficult than usual to decide what the next challenge should be, but after considering some of our choices, we’ve come to a conclusion. This week, we’d like you to create art of Saria in the Lost Woods. She could be sitting on her stump outside the Forest Temple playing her ocarina, or walking through the corridors of the Sacred Meadow, maybe even wandering the overgrown Lost Woods of Twilight Princess; create whatever you have in mind! I’d especially like to see you add a beautiful background. And don’t forget you can share with the hashtag #artistsoflegend!
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. 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 you work in the comment section here on Zelda Informer, 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. 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!
