Deku Shield

By meanlilkitty
304 Favourites
Continuing my tribute to Zelda...The Deku Shield! Made this afternoon while I was waiting for a different prop to dry. Made from layers of pink insulation foam that I shaped with a dremmel then painted with acrylics. Tomorrow I'll attach a leather strap to the back so it can be wielded and a loop at the top so it can be hung on the wall. Sadly the picture doesn't do it justice, I hate to toot my own horn, but the wooden texture is AWESOME in person =D Tomorrow I may try to take a new picture in better light and hope it'll get some more of the detailed painting.

Now available on etsy! [link]

I love it! Only thing that bugs me is the shield's shape is backwards. The red-painted part is great, along with the wood texture. c: Great work!

haha I know! I did it without reference XD you think that someone who has made this shield so many times would have gotten it right!

This is AMAZING!

I'm not entirely convinced you didn't steal this from Link himself! XD

That must've taken a lot of patience, getting all the grooves in the "wood". Looks pretty dang good in the photo, so it must look amazing up close!

Very realistic indeed. I like the use of detail, as it is very heavy.
