Making The Hylian Shield: Part 1

in #art2 years ago

Today I will be making the iconic Hylian shield from The Legend Of Zelda.


First I will start off with a piece of EVA foam.

Then I will draw out a paper pattern. I will only need to draw half the shield. 

Then I trace the pattern onto the EVA foam. 

 Now I will cut it out of the EVA foam.

 After it is cut out I heated it with a heat gun to relax the foam and allow it to bend in the shape I want it.

Now once it's bent, I folded a piece of paper and cut out half an isosceles trapezoid with a triange in the middle, then I unfolded it

 Now I draw an inch wide line around the border of the shield. I also traced the isosceles trapezoid shape onto the pattern.

 Now that the pattern shape is cut out I traced that onto a 1mm thick foam. I repeat this process twice then I glue it.

Now that the piece is glued on there I make a pattern of the pointy five design and the three triangles on the top of the shield, then I traced and cut it out on 1mm thick foam then glued it on.

And that's all for part one part two will be coming out soon.
