Hello everyone! And Happy Thanksgiving to those of you in the U.S. who are celebrating today! Whether you’re spending time with family and friends or enjoying a quiet day to yourself, I hope you enjoy this special day.
Last Week’s Challenge
Last week, we asked you to submit art of Fi, the faithful and statistic-sharing companion from Skyward Sword. While I knew she wasn’t the most popular character ever, I decided to focus on her for this challenge. And here is the art that resulted from it!

This next piece of art wasn’t a submission, but it is a terrific piece of art that fits the challenge very well.

My favorite thing about writing these posts is always seeing such terrific artwork.
The Next Challenge
While I know not all of you are Americans or celebrate this holiday even if you are, but this week, we’re focusing on Thanksgiving, and as such, there’s a lot of creative freedom involved. This week, we’d like you to create art of something in the Legend of Zelda franchise that you’re thankful for. Whether it’s a character that you love, an area, a specific game, a scene, or anything of the like, we’re looking for you to share art relating to things in the franchise that you are thankful for.
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! And again, Happy Thanksgiving!
