Skulltula by Asashi-Kami Skulltula by Asashi-Kami
My little version of Ocarina of Time's "Skulltula" for #Game-Art-HQ's gallery: Link's Blacklist [link] Which I would suggest dropping by and taking a look-see. There are a bunch of other cool paintings there as well. :D

Took me about 20 hours total.

hehehe, so on a side note, do you guys remember that moment when you first picked up the controller and headed over to the Deku Tree and encountered your first enemy (aside from the bokobaba plant)? ...who else pictured that moment like this image? I totally did, lol... hell the whole game looked like this to me. lol. Imagination! yeah!

***Note: There have been some requests for prints of this piece but, unfortunately, DA rejects Fan Art printing due to copyright infringement laws BUT if you're still interested in the prints, you can just click ---> [link] <--- and get your prints there if you like. :D ***

OMG!!
This is the BEST The Legend of Zelda Fanart i have ever seen. It is PERFECT!
I love Spiders, i love the legend of Zelda and i totally love this pic.
The poses of the skulltula and Link are amazing, the colors are perfect and the light gives this pic a wonderful dark touch.
You are an incredible artist! And congratulations for the very well deserved DD!

hehehe, it's not really that temple per-say. I took some creative freedoms and pulled some references from it just for the sake of a background. =P

When I played that game, I couldn't fight the Skulltulas. I was too scared of them. :XD: Damn you, arachnophobia.

I would die as a kid if the Skulltula was that realistic (I hated Ocarina of time because of that but i learned to love it and even face my fear in Twilight Princess (Pass the forest Temple unaware of the location of the Skulltulas ^^

Like? No way, I dont like it. I would never like this. Not in a thousand years. I love it. Love!!! Total difference there. :D ;)
You are an amazing artist! And I agree to what you wrote, when I saw a skulltula the very first time I was so afraid of them, never having seen such graphic before, I almost didnt dare get near it. Even if I do love spiders for real. XDD Im gonna buy this print!! :la:

Hiya, today i created the article for the Skulltula from Zelda OoT and your entry, you can see it here [link]

If you want to have something changed or added just let me know

The whole project gets published tomorrow, and due to the success of this project already, Link`s Blacklist will be continued in 2013 with the target to get another wave of Zelda bosses and enemies drawn for it. You are welcome onboard again if you like

Greets, Reinhold Hoffmann
