Hey! Welcome back to Artists of Legend, and Happy New Year! As it’s now a new year, and that means new challenges, new themed months, and even a new original content series coming soon, so keep an eye out!
Last Week’s Challenge
Last week, in honor of 2017 coming to a close, we asked you to submit art of Hyrule at night. We’re still going through a bit of an art drought, considering that we’re only just now finishing up the holiday season, but we did get some great artwork!
By Peter Robinson on the Original Post on Zelda Dungeon:
While this next piece wasn’t a submission, I wanted to showcase this terrific artwork.
Thank you for sharing your artistic talents with us!
A Community Question
Now, before we get to this week’s challenge, I’d like to pose a question to you, the community who follows this series. I’ve recently been noticing that there has been interest to create art for the challenges, but there haven’t been many submissions to follow up to that interest. Now my question to you, as creators, is: Should we up the challenge time period to two weeks instead of having a new post and challenge weekly? While this series would drop from having four entries each month to having just two a month, it would give you as artists more time to create and share you entries. So should we leave this series as it currently is or extend the time period to do this series bi-weekly?
This Week’s Challenge
This week, I was inspired by the common New Year’s resolution to get in shape to offer this challenge. This week, we’d like you to create art of Ravio training to get stronger and have more courage. That could be him fighting enemies, practicing swordsmanship with Link, or whatever else comes to mind!
Here are the rules for the contest:
- Keep things clean. Zelda Dungeon-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 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. 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 this time, and I’ll see you all next week!
