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)

Found this on facebook as a meme, with your name covered up by the meme text. :(  But I made sure to link to you when I shared it!

Same here, very annoyed that whoever made the meme seemed to intentionally cover up your name with the meme text (so much that at first go, I didn't notice your name underneath the meme text).
Here's a link to the Share of it which I saw...

A different FB user posted a link to this deviation in the comments.
Quite a nice deviation, BTW! :heart:
