Skyward Sword Props 01 by xHylianKnightx Skyward Sword Props 01 by xHylianKnightx
Skyward Sword Link's Master Sword & Hylian Shield~

Finished versions, both are made out of cardboard, with foam filling for strength. Painted with acrylics, and sealed with mod podge (outdoors).

Kept original bright colours, to pay homage to the new game Skyward Sword's design.

All 3 props, Sword, Shield & Sheath were completed in one week's time (very little sleep), and cost about 10$ for paint and glue. Everything else was recycled materials. :)

I'm very sorry, I do not. :(

But I'm always happy to help with construction advice, or any questions on how they were made. :)

:( I can understand that frustration, I still make a bunch of mistakes while making my props. I just practice as much as possible to get better, and learn from those mistakes (so I hopefully don't repeat them!). Another reason why I use cardboard, is because it's usually free, so making mistakes isn't a cost worry. If you like doing crafts, I'd start with materials you know best. Slowly expand to trying new things (as long as they are within your budget!), to get a feel for how things work. For making 3D props from artwork or 2D images, the best pictures are a direct front facing image, side and back image. If it's slanted or angled even a little, it will be much harder to figure out. There are tons of concept artworks from the team who makes the games. Those are the best images you could hope for! Zelda specifically, if you can find Hyrule Historia, or if you own the book, they have great front/side images. Then you can just measure how tall you are, and make that ratio for you. Some people find it easier to trace the picture to know where to put certain pieces, or even print it out to help.

There's lots of little tricks you can use to make props, even if you aren't good at measurements. :) Good luck!
