Skulltula Ambush by NateHallinanArt Skulltula Ambush by NateHallinanArt

My version of what a real Skulltula might look like. If you haven't played any of the Zelda games, Skulltulas are a nasty spiders in the land of Hyrule. These awful enemies like to drop down and ambush their prey from above. If the fall doesn't knock you out, their deadly venom will. They generally like to feed on the contents of the head (brains, eyes, etc). If they need a new shell, they’ll carve out the skull and use it as armor like hermit crabs. The larger they grow the larger the skulls they have to obtain.

Check out the concepts here: natehallinanart.deviantart.com…

(All done in Photoshop)
