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.

Well, I have to admit, that the cucumber was heavily referenced and some of the structure is directly taken from a photo (even though there is not one cucumber with such spikes out there, so they are real). So are parts of the scale structure of the lizard lady. That is the case, since initially I wanted to do this quickly.
I'm sure I could have done it without that aid though - but it still somewhat bothers me not to tell people that I did use that technique when they refer to these areas of the picture, since I somehow feel that I cheat on them if I didn't. :)

So you you like those animals as well? :)
I think that they are still artistically very under-represented in the Western world. :D

I guess as of late I have a thing for tongues. I don't really know why. But I just seem to like them.
And for creepy things. They are always good... :)
