A cursory glance inside Austin Dowdy’s Etsy shop is enough to wow anyone who’s interested in art and artifacts. This is because this incredible artist has been designing his own clothes, props, and trinkets for over a decade and is still going strong.
Dowdy loves to challenge himself and whatever he sees he wants to make it his own. This has always acted as a catalyst in his creative process. And he has a vast repertoire of things that he has created. Some of his most famous works to date are the Legend of Zelda Master Sword full-size metal replica, Breath of the Wild, Twilight Princess, and Ocarina of Time. So authentic looking were these masterpieces that they sold out in no time from his Etsy shop.
In an email to awesomebyte.com, Dowdy shares about his work, thus:
“I’ve designed everything from cosplay props to t-shirts to vests to my own wedding suit and wedding band. My specialties and obsessions typically include work for bands, musicians, YouTubers, and personal projects.”
Dowdy’s focus remains on geek themes products. Prominent among them are Nintendo, The Legend of Zelda, and Star Wars. However, his creativity doesn’t end here, as can be seen in his Etsy shop that offers myriad objects and works of art.
The art bug had bitten Dowdy in his childhood itself and he devoted his life practicing making things of his own, since before he could remember. Today, this self-taught artist has made a name for himself in his artistic field. In 2017, he branched out as a new artist with Etsy and is now inviting all to discuss their projects. This is his way of making his life even more challenging.
The good part is, after making things for himself for a greater part of his life, Dowdy has now decided to start doing the same for his fans and viewers. He invites all to not only browse his works but also invites them to see his previous works. After all, what he does is certainly worth the money!
