Drawing by Miiverse user CrookedU

In January Eiji Aonuma, the producer of the Legend of Zelda series, launched a drawing event on Miiverse to bring the respective communities of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Art Academy: SketchPad together. The task is to show creativity with the 3DS game as a source of inspiration.

This event has been underway for a little while and closes on 16th February, so there's still plenty of opportunity for aspiring artists to share their creations and, possibly, be selected by Nintendo. Aonuma-san's guidelines are below.

For this event, the theme is to draw your favorite characters from the Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds!

Express your creativity by setting characters from the game in your original situations.


  • Pictures must be drawn using Art Academy: SketchPad which is available for purchase in the eShop.
  • Pictures must feature at least one character from the Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.
  • Entries are limited to one original work per person.
  • Comment on this post to submit your entry.
  • Pictures will be chosen based on a rating system that considers skills, artistic expression and creativity.
  • The artists whose entries receive the highest rating will be chosen by Nintendo. We may share your drawings outside Miiverse.

Remember, this is a global event, so please avoid using writing in your work.

The event will end on Feb. 16, 2014 or after there are over 1000 comments, whichever comes first. Works that stood out to us will be recognized under the categories of Gold Star, Silver Star, Bronze Star, Aonuma's Favorites, and Art Academy Favorites in this community.

There are some seriously impressive artworks already on display in the thread's comments section. Have you taken part yet, or do you plan to before the deadline?
