Eventually I’m going to add the bird motif around it, making it the Hylian Crest.
It’s got the fade in the middle on purpose. This was my “inspiration picture” – I like the distressed look.
It didn’t hurt as much as I feared (although the outline felt like a scalpel). The outline stings, the shading burns. Not too bad though. I did it *all by myself* because Jonathan had to go back home real quick and I just didn’t want to wait. He got there just in time for the last bit of shading. He would have missed the whole thing except I started feeling dizzy and asked the guy to stop.
By the way, make sure you’ve got food in your stomach before you go. 😉
