The first song I heard by them, and the first song of theirs I learned to play by them was a tune called "Dancer-Romancer" which basically states that we're all here by chance, whether ant or tree or human being, and we're all going to die, eventually.
This picture here is a literally interpretation of the third verse:
When the little baby plays in his little baby box of sand
Will he crush the little ant with his little hand
Will a lightning storm bring tall tree crashing down
on the little sand box and if it does will there
be a little sound if there's no one around

I decided to make the baby more of a toddler, and also a girl, because why not?
In my head this was going to have a very extreme forced perspective, more of an ants-eye-view, but I'm not that skilled yet. That being said, I do like the way this turned out. I got to make use of some of my mediums to give the sandbox that gritty texture.
