It was a beautiful day, when Jenna and Kia decided to go into the woods behind her house.
On the way, they discovered a small clearing in the undergrowth. The soil looked sandy and seemed stable, but it seemed that no trees or other plants grow up on it, up to a few exceptions.
"This was once the dreaded bottomless quagmire from which there should be no escape."
Kia said, slightly aroused.
"Do you dare to go to the middle, sis?"
Kia's expression looked provocatively challenging.
Thereupon, Jenna saw slightly blushing at her. Kia knew that Jenna never could resist a challenge like this.
"I will do it!“ Jenna said, and tooked her shoes off.
She carefully put one foot after the other. She made it easily into the center and smiled victorious.
Suddenly, the ground gave away beneath her feets and they disappeared up to the ankles in deep dark mud.
"Um ... Kia, I think I have a problem here!"
Jenna said slightly scared and tried to lift her left foot, whereupon her Right slipped deeper into the thick mud.
„I… i think this is quicksand!“
Jenna exclaimed in horror and struggled around helplessly.
"I like your show, you are a very good actress, sis!"
Kia grinned with an aroused voice.
Without thinking she walked up to Jenna which tried in vain to warn her sister.
„No, please! You can’t escape it, when you sinking in it! It’s bottomless!“
she moaned. But Kia remained stubborn.
"Don't worry, i will... oh shit!"
Kia gasped, as her feets were swallowed up by the ground.
"Oh no! You're right!"
Kia struggled like a freak until she had sunk to her knees and the suction which embraced her tightly becomes so strong, that she couldn't move her legs anymore.
Jenna tried to poke around in the mud with a 2-meter-long wooden stick, in the hope, she'll find solid ground. But it seemed hopeless. The mud was just too deep around them and it was only a matter of time before they would goes down all the way. Kia desperately clinging to her little sister and tried in vain to lift her up.
Is someone here who can help the two girls?
I hope you like it!
Jenna looks lovely in her short-sleeve mini-dress, and the subtle highlights you've placed in hers and Kia's hair are a wonderful touch! Your shading work on these women is most outstanding, and the colors are beautiful.
I also like how you drew the portion of the quicksand that they're sinking into darker than the surrounding mud... it gives a nice impression of how they've broken through the drier top layer and have sunk into the wetter, gooier mire just below. The overall background is beautifully done, and I like how you drew the sun shining down upon these trapped ladies.
Thanks for sharing!
First, the story that perfectly compliments the artwork. Thanks to the combination of story and art, I can perfectly imagine the whole scenario in my mind. I can see what happened just before this, picture how exactly they got stuck. The story also gives me confirmation as to what the art is trying to portray, and it's definitely letting my imagination run free as to what will happen as they sink deeper in the quicksand (especially when they get to their crotches in the quicksand. I'd really love to imagine what they'd do at that point... I'm a freaking pervert, I know...)
And as for the art itself, it depicts just what you wanted; Kia and Jenna both sinking in a quagmire while Kia selflessly, yet in vain, attempts to pull her little sister out of the trap with her bare hands, knowing that she too is sinking, and that her actions may only cause the two of them to sink in faster.
I just... I... I don't think I can praise you or your arts nearly enough. With every single quicksand art you've posted here, you've taken my quicksand fetish to a whole new level, and that's something that I'll always be thankful for. Keep up the exquisite work; I'll be waiting to see what other marvelous art you create next.

I very love your style and this work is awesome! Also your stories deserve special attention. It's really good addition to every your work, that gives it more dramatic color.
I think you can make some colorful comics on base of this work. It is would be cool!
Sorry for my poor English, but I should tell any thing about it!
