Forgive me for the ‘punny’ title :D. I just had to draw a toon ant for some reason. Ants are amazing creatures (until they invade your house). This one looks either sad or exhausted. On a interesting note. When searching for references for this painting. I notice some toon artwork portraying legs coming out of the gaster (the bulbous posterior of the ant) instead of the thorax! That’s almost as silly as giving a male kangaroo a pouch :D.
Interesting ant facts: Most worker ants are female. Most male ants only have one purpose, and that is to mate with the queen, after that most will die. Some ants will herd other insects like aphlids. Some ants will even enslave ants form other colonies! http://insects.about.com/od/antsbeeswasps/a/10-cool-facts-about-ants.htm
