Hello again! We’re back again and stronger than ever! We received six submissions for last week’s challenge, which is the most we’ve ever received for a single challenge! It was very uplifting to see people getting involved and enjoying this series. I’m looking forward to this sort of thing occurring more as time goes by!

Last Week’s Challenge

Last week, we prompted you to submit art of Saria in the Lost Woods. You guys blew me away by submitting more art than you ever have before! It was very exciting to see multiple pieces of art, and also a few different forms!

The Next Challenge

And now we move on to this week’s challenge. This week, we’d like you to create art of the Guardian in Breath of the WildOf course, the Guardian is the iconic enemy of the newest Legend of Zelda, as well as one of my personal favorite enemies in the franchise. There’s something rather fun about defeating such a large and powerful threat. Why don’t you be a bit creative with this? You could create art of any of the main forms of Guardians – Stalkers, Skywatchers, Scouts, or Decayed – and you could have them fighting Link or someone else, quietly roaming the fields of Hyrule, whatever you come up with!

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!

    Do Divine Beasts count as Guardians?

    • Adam Barham

      Mm, might be pushing it a bit, but I’d still take art of one as a submission.

      • Jebradiah Drake

        It stinks that there’s not a lot of fan art of the Divine Beasts even though BotW was really popular. I guess they’re just too detailed to draw on a whim…

    I forgot to change the color mode after scanning in my original sketch, and I didn’t realize I was in grayscale until I had finished most of the guardian. Oh well, grayscale it is!

    I’d wish it looked better, but I messed up the layer layout, so in the end it does’t look like it should.
