Link's second shield from Ocarina of Time, this metal shield was impervious to fire. After Ocarina of Time, this shield became his signature shield... its design became the most well-known shield design in the Zelda universe.
Due to this shield's symmetrical design, I was able to split its UVs in half and overlap them, saving a ton of texture space. Using in-game screenshots, official art, and screenshots from Soul Caliber 2 (which used this shield's design as Link's main shield), I was able to recreate this shield in as few polys as possible whilst still keeping things looking three-dimentional. The metal border around the shield gave me some trouble, but after some tweaking of the specular and color maps, it came out pretty well. All textures are completely hand-painted.
