Tasting the Sea Cucumber by sythiar Tasting the Sea Cucumber by sythiar
I did this for *tailfeather's art quilt.

Actually this picture should have been a lot less detailed, but somehow it got out of hand.
Why a sea cucumber? I only have a vague answer to that. It includes the word "glima" and it not being the reproductive organs of said creature (don't ask... -_-). Also, our snake lady is pretty naive when it comes down to handling a sea cucumber, but I guess she's just curious and silly like that, since she's never seen a sea cucumber before.


Let me tell you why it's not a good idea to handle a sea cucumber like that:

- In the best case since, if the cucumber feels threatened it ejects either sticky filaments (collagen) or then even parts of it's digestive system (evisceration). So yes, the latter means it literally pukes its guts out.
- In the worst case you get a mixture of spaghetti-like tubules and a bunch of rather unpleasant chemicals thrown at you out of it's bum.

Oh, and just in case: I know that sea cucumbers don't really look like that, but I drew it like this to artistically match it to the tongue of the snake lady. So there.
