Hey everyone! Artists Of Legend, Zelda Informer’s new Original Content series, began last Thursday, and this week we’re back with the results and a new challenge. Considering how new this series is, I was pleasantly surprised to receive four terrific submissions. As I expected and previously seen, the Legend of Zelda community has some very talented artists in its midst.
Last Weeks Challenge
Last week, I prompted you to submit art of your own creation of Link drawing the Master Sword from its pedestal. Though two of the submissions were not one-hundred percent exactly what I had asked for, I decided to include them despite that because of how fresh and new this series is, and because of how good the art was. In the future, please try to stick closer to the overall prompt, but I won’t be to strict on this; after all, one of the main things we’re trying to do with this series is get your creative juices flowing, which does include being creative with the prompt. Now, here are the four submissions I received!

Thank each of you for the terrific artwork!
The Next Challenge
Now, having completed that challenge, I am offering a new prompt for this week. This week, I’d like you to create art of Link riding on a dragon. The Legend of Zelda franchise has had multiple dragons throughout, both as bosses and as allies. I’d like you to create art of Link riding either one of the many that has been seen in the series, a dragon from somewhere else, or one of your own design. Make it as calm and happy or as terrifying and intense as you want!
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!
