Hylian Shield

Link's Hylean shield. Much like the sword I built, this was done in a week and mostly just "eyeballed" with regards to sizing and dimensions. I cleaned up a lot of the edges from "V1" to V1.1" that you see here.


Side Shot. The curve of the shield right now is far too shallow, and the profile is also too thick. This was mostly made with insulation foam and MDF board, then bondo to smooth details. The feligree pieces were also carves from insulation foam, which can't hold details very well. These will be redone in Apoxie Sculpt for the next version.


The back details were faked in a time crunch. The actual shield has raised edges and rivets in this area. If we're going for total game accuracy though, the shield model is just flat on the back with a textured map placed on top. That means this is correct!


A full-fledged "V2" rebuild is in the works, since I've gone and built a more accurate vector outline of the shield.

Hello Harrison. I just wanted to say thank you for sharing the line work template for your new shield. I used it to create my own Hylian shield made out of craft foam. I posted about it here:

I've had a request to write an Instructable on how to make a craft foam shield. If you wouldn't mind, I'd like to use your line art as part of the instructions. Please let me know if this is ok. I will credit you in the instructable. My email is bogusred@paperdemon.com

Great work! I was amazed by the Master Sword and the shield. I was wondering... is your work available for purchasing? Tks!
