Hylian Shield Details by xHylianKnightx Hylian Shield Details by xHylianKnightx
Skyward Sword Link's Shield~

Hurrah! Zombie Link triumphs again! Need sleep....

Completed my shield this morning, and all that's needed is the bolts, the strap on the back, and the handle.The surface was cleaned, front and back are now permanently attached, and it's ready to paint.

All details are just pieces of cardboard cut into shapes, and glued together. I use reference pictures to guide me, otherwise it's all free hand.

Cardboard, you are my dear friend, in your many cheap versatile ways~

Haha, well if you have specific questions, I can answer those a whole lot better than open ended ones! :)

This is absolutely lovely. All the edges are so clean, and the proportions look fantastic. Excellent work!

I need to make my own Hylian shield in the next 3 days, so I'm drawing inspiriation from yours. I hope it turns out even half as well :)

Aww, I really hope yours turns out well too! Just take your time, and plan out all your measurements first, the building stage is pretty easy in comparison, and will be quick! :)

I know it's crunch time, but if you need any help, I'll do my best to answer you as quick as possible if you have questions on certain parts. :)

Thanks! I've actually got it mostly done now, but your in-progress shots were an enormous help. I built the base of the shield and the outer rim thing using your method, but made the raised details in the middle out of clay/foam. I cheated a bit by printing out a to-scale picture of the shield for my pattern, though, hahaha. Now I just need to paint it, and figure out how to attach it to my arm/back...
