Picture of Hylian Shield out of Cardboard
So one of my friend's birthdays was coming up and they're a Legend of Zelda fan, so I thought," Why not make a Hylian Shield."  So I started making the shield.
This is my first Instructable, so suggestions and CONSTRUCTIVE criticism is appreciated.

Step 1: Materials and Stuff

The materials were relatively cheap and easy to find.  All you need is:

Cardboard sized about:  20 3/4 In. X 21 1/4 In.
A pair of scissors or an x-acto knife or something sharp and precise.
A pencil.
Two paintbrushes. I got a thick and thin bristled brushes.
A cup of water.
A soft cloth or wash cloth.
And the hardest to find, acrylic paint.  It needs to be acrylic, because the lady at the art shop said it showed up the best on cardboard.
The colors I used were:
    Carmine (dark red)
    Primary Yellow (yellow)
    Neutral Grey (grey)
    Titanium White (white)
    Phthalo Blue (dark blue)
 
Nice painting job :) You should enter this into the Holiday Gifts Contest!
