Aesop Fable- The Dove and the Ant

The Dove and the Ant

An Ant, going to a river to drink, fell in and was carried along in the stream. A Dove pitied her condition, and threw into the river a small bough, by means of which the Ant gained the shore. The Ant afterward, seeing a man with a fowling piece aiming at the Dove, stung him in the foot sharply, and made him miss his aim, and so saved the Dove's life.

"Little friends may prove great friends."

This is an illustration based on the classic Aesop Fable, the Dove and the Ant. The story was so simple that there was much room for visual interpretation. I used pencil, Photoshop, and Illustrator. Special thanks to Nathalie Gonzalez for her help on the illustration. Enjoy!
