Roald Dahl - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by MortenEng21 Roald Dahl - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by MortenEng21
Here is a drawing from my fascination of Roald Dahl and his universe.
So I decided to draw one of the characters from one of Roald Dahl's books.
And here it is all drawn by me inspired by Quentin Blake's drawings from most of all Roald Dahl's books.
I'm a fan of both Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake.
The drawings in the books are so funny, good and fantastic. And it inspires me alot as an artist.

And my all-time favorite book is "The Enormous Crocodile".
I love that story so very much ever since I was a little kid and I discovered for the first time since in my days and years in elementary school.

Oh, yes. Back to the drawing of mine:

One of the most famous characters and a very special place from the Norwegian-British novelist and short story writer Roald Dahl's universe, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
"Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" is Roald Dahl's most famous story ever told and written.
The story features the adventures of young Charlie Bucket inside the chocolate factory of eccentric chocolatier Willy Wonka.

The story was originally inspired by Roald Dahl's experience of chocolate companies during his schooldays. Cadbury would often send test packages to the schoolchildren in exchange for their opinions on the new products. At that time (around the 1920s), Cadbury and Rowntree's were England's two largest chocolate makers and they each often tried to steal trade secrets by sending spies, posing as employees, into the other's factory. Because of this, both companies became highly protective of their chocolate making processes. It was a combination of this secrecy and the elaborate, often gigantic, machines in the factory that inspired Dahl to write the story.

Good work! I like that you didn't try to make the characters look like the movie versions.

Thank you so much!
Well, I do the research and look at the pictures from the book and the movie. And I make it into my version.
