Welcome back, one and all to the best part of the year—Linktober! All month long, I’ll be combing the Internet, taking in the sights, and bringing you a tasty charcuterie board of curated art. This week, we’re looking at days 7-13 of the Linktober calendars. While last week, we saw quite a few three-dimensional pieces, this week we’re focusing on illustrations drawn with traditional media. That means, gauche, ink, markers, pastels, watercolors, and so much more!
Before we get started, please remember:
- All art is good art. Just because you don’t like a particular piece, doesn’t mean it’s bad.
- Artists, if you don’t see your work on this week’s round-up, that doesn’t mean it isn’t good enough. Trust me, I saw your work and loved it too!
- See a piece you really like? Don’t be afraid to like, comment, and follow the artist! Just click the artist’s username, and you’ll be on your way.
Now, it’s time to look at some art!
Longtime friend of Zelda Dungeon, Ariluci, is here! They combined several prompts into these beautiful Zora inspired items.
I can’t be the only one thinking juliarangelart illustrated the most sinister yet huggable ReDead ever.
Every single Linktober piece crafted by ksenjiahoshi.illustration belongs in a museum. Done in an illuminated manuscript style, these works are filled to the brim with delightful details. They’re also writing a Webtoons comic, so check that out too!
This work by lazy.firefly is so cozy and cute! It’s good to see Link take a well deserved break.
This costume swap by margorenard gives me all those good Saturday morning cartoon vibes. I would love to see an animated special where Mario and Link switch abilities!
This work by marysw725 is impossibly tiny and truly impressive. I love the minimal shading and pop of color!
I never thought I’d look at a mining illustration and thing, “man, those rocks looks delicious.” They look like fruit gummies! Thanks mik3sanz for revealing my inner Goron.
This week’s featured image was done by N2y88! I love seeing their materials around this work, as well as the selective color on the mask.
This stunning autumnal work by Nukedav looks like it could be a screenshot from Breath of the Wild! I could sit here for hours, soaking in the sun and listening to the leaves sing.
Every year, Ohgreatmoreboats shares their figure photography with us. It’s so good to see Epona chilling in a library, keeping up on the news!
Realm_builds is creating a new craft or cosplay item every day. This banana plush dressed as a Yiga Clan member is adorable and hilarious!
Finishing us up this week, we have this golden work by responds.to.jaime. Inspired by medieval manuscripts, the artist used Breath of the Wild’s alphabet for the text. You can translate and read what it says! How cool is that?
And that’s a wrap for week two! If you’re participating, don’t forget to tag your work with #linktober and #artistsoflegend so I can find it. Or, just drop a link to your work below in the comments.
Which piece was your favorite this week? Did you find a new artist to follow? Be sure to give them some love with a like and a follow, and let them know that Zelda Dungeon sent you. I’ll see you all next week, with another batch of amazing art!
Remember to have fun, and stay safe out there.
