[Kelptastrophy] - Who You Gonna Call? Urchin-Busters!

Prompt #1 - Umpteen Urchins

There are so many urchins that you hardly even know where to start. But start you must, before the tiny beasts disrupt an entire ecosystem. Draw or write about your character’s efforts to catch or kill Frilled Urchins. Your piece must include your character, a character from the opposite ARPG, and a Frilled Urchin.


The source of the problem was at the bottom of the ocean.

Or, rather, the bottom of the kelp beds, where the urchins were congregating and de-seaweed-foresting the kelp forest ecosystem. 

Scap requested Luis come with him, knowing the golden engineer would be very helpful to have onboard a submarine that Scap did not know how to operate. Escorted by two Aqrion, the luminescent Duracell and the mech-savvy Tiko, things were going rather smoothly with locating urchins and loading them into the back of the sub to bring up to the surface.

It was fine for the first couple of trips. But by the fifth or sixth round...

"Um. Luis, mister... you don't look like you're feeling well."

"Yeah... you think, kid? Closed spaces, ugh... let's hurry up. The faster we finish, the faster we can get out of here."

"Just one more trip, we almost have all of them. In fact, I'll go outside to give you some room to breath."

"Outside? In the water? Under this kind of pressure? Wh- hey! Where do you think you're going!"

"Don't worry about me! You focus on your calm, deep breaths, got it?"

"Deep breaths my--"


Thank you to Fordandra (Luis), seepran (Tiko), and eyemittens (Duracell) for letting me draw your characters! :D

I do not apologize for the cheesy title, but also if this gets a copyright strike I do apologize in advance ;P

      All the sweetness comes from all the sugar he consumes from drinking smoothies all the time Wink

      I was considering doing the other prompt where he tries to eat the urchins without cooking them first, but that seemed a more writerly thing and I wanted to art so I could draw shiny dergs ><
