Evolution of Link's Shield Wallpaper by BLUEamnesiac Evolution of Link's Shield Wallpaper by BLUEamnesiac
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…

ALBW's shield is wrong. It's REALLY wrong.

Base on this. It's very similar to SS's one, but ALBW's hylian shield only have 2 scars in the top-iron part. Plus, those screws are like incrustrated in the shield and not popping it. Take note man (Y)

I don't know why but Ocarina of Time looks better than the others. Maybe it's because there's more detail? I mean the games after that didn't even use the extra triangle/triforce at the bottom anymore. It bothers me so much!

Truly an amazing piece of work! And despite all the recreations of the Hylian Shield, I'd say the one from Ocarina of Time is still my favorite. The little triangle at the bottom means a lot to me for some reason :)

I don't see much change between Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess.

I actually think Majora's mask is my favorite.  It looks like they actually integrated some of the game's plot into the shield its self.

Okay. In Soul Calibur II, Link uses OoT version shield, and in Super Smash Bros, he uses Twilight Princess ver.
