Hylian Shield WIP by DreZX Hylian Shield WIP by DreZX
Healthy obsession, anyone? This is my attempt at a realistic Hylian Shield from the Legend of Zelda series. Ton of hours into it so far, but it's coming along nicely.

A. Cardboard and duct tape model covered in fiberglass.
B. First application of Bondo (car body filler)
C. After second application of Bondo and sanding, and then covered in primer.
D. Painted blue to see how it would look in final color.
E. Design was drawn onto shield with blue marker.
F. Started to do triangles and edging with Bondo.
G. Sanded Bondo.
H. Skipping a few steps.. this is after a few more coats and sandings of Bondo, then primering the whole thing again, and then cleaning up edges on the right side. The right side now has a texture like polished marble.

I can't wait to finish this thing, I'm well along the way. I just started this earlier this week.

Comments appreciated, updates hopefully coming soon.

Great job, I'm assuming both the Master Sword (obviously shown on another deviation) and Hylian Shield are Ocarina of Time style? If ever you have the urge to do the Twilight Princess version I've got a full-detail version lineart of it in my gallery. As for this awesome piece of work, this goes in my favs. ;D

And yea, I've actually done a lot more work to it in the past few weeks... I'm now gonna make it into a backpack. It's almost ready to paint now.

dude! that is sooo freakin awesome. are you commisioning this as well?
DreZX Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2005
I would certainly love to, but this is really expensive to make, the way I'm doing it. Though, if once it's done, I can make a mold of it and pump out copies, then yea, I'll be all over it.
