I think in the New Zelda game Skulltula's should actually be Spiders that hide in Skulls

And Big Skulltulas should hide in bigger Skulls *like Dodongo skulls and such, They just lie their waiting for link to walk up and then

Boing The jump at you and grab you.

They are absolutely lovey! Even though you probably made the game a lot harder for plenty of arachnophobic gamers out there. o v  o

I'm LOVING the one on the right. It's the creepiest, & ugliest one (in a good way). I like the other two, but they just seems more...just there to bother Link than to attack. The third on has that "just crawled from my crevice" look, & ready to strike Link by surprise. Either way, they're all beautifully done.

What a great idea :) These are absolutely effective - I don't need to look at them for more than a second to understand what they are and how they work. Your concepts are so inspiring!

Doggone my Zelda-nerdiness... Doggone it to heck and back!

Skulltula concepts and design haven't creeped me out to the core like this since Twilight Princess, especially the one on the right. Good Lord, the one on the right *rubs arms*... But I have to say this is excellent work!

I really like the first one, it gives you the feel of a skull and yet it's still distinctively spider-like and not a skull riding on a spider.

Love the third concept.  The first two have a little too much of a sci-fi feel to them that doesn't quite go with the source material.  The third is the creepiest, and leaves some ambiguity as to what might be inside the webbing.  I could easily see a bunch of baby spiders crawling out through the "eye sockets".
