Update: 05/05/2014 It's way past due, but I finally updated the A Link Between Worlds Hylian Shield to reflect the finalized artwork.


Update: 06/14/2013 A Link to the Past gets another sequel, which means a new shield! Also, the wallpaper has been expanded to 3200x2000 in anticipation for further expansion. I'm looking at you Zelda Wii U*! ;)


Update: 06/05/2012 The shield from the recently shown Legend of Zelda: Battle Quest is now present. :) The previous version of this wallpaper can be found here sta.sh/0c30f18t0qm .


Update: They may have reduced the detail for the crest a little, but I consider the shield in Four Swords/Four Swords Adventure/The Minish Cap to be the same as Wind Waker's.

It was suggested that I make a wallpaper of the Zelda shields I've made, so here we are. Respect the rich history of the smashing board! www.dorkly.com/video/5854/dork…
