Hello again everyone! Our newest series, Artists of Legend, is now back for its third week. We’re starting off slow, but we’re still going, and I’m excited to see this series get stronger and stronger as it continues in the future.

Last Week’s Challenge

Last week, we prompted you to submit art of your own creation of Link riding on a dragon, which could have been a dragon from the Zelda series, other franchises, or your own imagination. While we received fewer submissions than we did last week, we did receive one single terrific piece of art. MrsGryphon, one of the artists from last week, once again made an incredible piece of art for the challenge.


By MrsGryphon on the original post on Zelda Informer’s website:

I’d like to give them a big “thank you” for being the only person to actually submit art for last week’s challenge. Considering how few submissions that challenge received, maybe I’ll bring it back again in time.

The Next Challenge

It’s time to move on from one challenge to a new one. As Zelda Informer is currently running Ghost Week, it’d make sense for the next challenge to be related to it. This week, we’re looking for you to create art of any undead enemy or creature in the Legend of Zelda franchise. From Poes to Stalfos and everything in between, the Legend of Zelda series is far from lacking when it comes to undead creatures. We’d like to see your take on them, whether they be roaming a dungeon, battling Link, or haunting some poor person. And because it’s almost time for Halloween, why not try to make your art just a little bit creepy?

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!
