The ant and the cricket by rubberpie The ant and the cricket by rubberpie
Just some illustrations of one of my fav childhood fables. You know, the ant works all day long while the cricket spends his time singing and basically having a good time all while rubbing it in the ant's face like a true neighbor. However when winter comes he realizes he's a hobo. He's got no food, no place to stay, and he's probably going to die. But the ant takes pity on the stupid idiot and the tale ends up having a happy end after all.

I wanted to practice drawing the sketches directly in photoshop. I'm proud it didn't turn out too bad! ( since usually I can't draw good sketches on a tablet to save my life. I always use the scanner. ) Boo-ya!

OH NOES there's a second version diffused in Italy that has a bad end D: the ant say the cricket is a stupid idiot and leave him out. The moral of the story simply is that only your providence for the future can save you. That's the reason I hated that tale and I figured in my head a final similar to this one. Nice work in illustrating characters (:
