Howdy! Welcome back to Artists of Legend, the series here on Zelda Dungeon where we share the fan art you send us and offer artistic challenges. No matter what’s going on in your life right now, I hope that the charming artwork that we’re featuring here is able to be an enjoyable part of things for you. Now, let’s get right into everything!
Last week, we asked you to create artwork themed on A Link to the Past. We have only one submission this week, but we also have plenty of other submitted artwork to share! If you wanted to submit to us but were too busy to, don’t worry! We all get busy sometimes; you focus on what you personally need to, and we’ll be here when you have the time.
Our submission for last week’s challenge is by artisticlittlebird on Instagram:
Here’s a bunch more great submitted artwork as well!

This Week’s Challenge
Today is being considered National Pet Day by many, so that’s what we’re basing this week’s prompt on! This week, we’d like you to create artwork of some sort of pet from the Zelda series. There are many different creatures that could be considered pets to many different characters – Epona, the Loftwings, or the goats from Twilight Princess are some for Link. Many games in the series feature cats and dogs in some areas. There are plenty of other options scattered throughout as well! Go crazy, be creative, and have fun!
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!
