Scattershot by torsoboyprops Scattershot by torsoboyprops
EDIT:
So this photo seems to be getting all the attention for some reason. In case everyone is just seeing this photo and isn't aware that I have others, I want to point everyone's attention to a much better, more definitive, and less awkward view of this prop:

[link]

This is the Scattershot from Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, the upgrade to the basic slingshot. This prop was designed in a rather unusual method for me. I designed it in Rhino 3D, then printed it out using my own custom papercraft models, and then filled the paper models with Smooth Cast 300 resin. The paper was sanded away, leaving a 100% solid resin model. The grip was fused to the top part with JB Weld and a steel rod. The bands actually came off two small slingshots I purchased online that had the right color I needed. There was an added bonus to the bands I purchased as well, as they are cut rubber strips instead of extruded rubber sheeting, so they are quite uneven, lending to the aesthetics of the prop. The cradle was made out of died yellow leather, while the grip was made out of some teal vinyl I found.

I wanted to give this prop a realistic look to it, so I gave it a slight wood texture and some moderate weathering, as if Link had been using it for a while.

Hi! My name is Mallory and I'm a News Correspondent from Zelda Universe. I was wondering if I could use your picture in a post promoting awesome Zelda crafts and what not. I am going to link back to this page as well so you don't have to worry about stealing traffic from your page.

That is truely breath taking, and does look like you stole it from Link's pouch.

It also brings back bittersweet memories of when I first handled a slingshot...

This is just incredible. It looks like it came right out of the game, but in a realistic way. The weathering and wood texture was a nice touch. Holy smokes, I'd love to have one of these, haha!

Amazing work! :D
