Zelda 64-styled Hylian Shield
A Request for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (WiiU)
A tribute to Zelda 64 (the beta of Ocarina of Time)!

The "beta version" of Ocarina of Time, then known as Zelda 64, has fascinated me for years. Many people have tried recreating the old screenshots in the form of romhacks; most of them failing.
One aspect of Zelda 64 that I think could be transferred rather well to another medium outside of the N64 is this older design of the Hylian Shield. It's a simple design but still recalls the iconic look of the shield that we've come to know and love. The simpler design also, I think, would lend itself to BotW's artstyle.
Send up a tribute to the beta build of Ocarina of Time and make the "Zelda 64 Shield" a reality! (Please!)
In order to win the bounty, you should fulfil the following requirements.
A functioning replacement for the Hylian Shield; custom texture, normal, spec map. I'll find a way to deliver extra points if it has a STANDALONE version in addition to the default, replacement-type version!
