Roald Dahl - Matilda and her family by MortenEng21 Roald Dahl - Matilda and her family 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:

Here is Matilda and her family - the Wormwood family.

Matilda Wormwood is the title character and protagonist of the best-selling children's novel Matilda by Roald Dahl. She is a highly precocious five year old girl who has a passion for reading books. Matilda's parents do not recognise their daughter's great intelligence and show little interest in her, particularly her father, a second-hand car dealer who has performed numerous abusive actions on Matilda. Matilda discovers she has telkenetic powers which she uses to her advantage.

Mr. Harry Wormwood is the father of Michael and Matilda Wormwood and the husband of Zinnia Wormwood. He's Italic texta used car salesman and owner of Wormwood Motors. Miss Trunchbull had asked him for an inexpensive and reliable car when she stopped to buy a car. She later realized that he cheated her after the car she bought started breaking down and punished his daughter by locking her in the Chokey until Miss Honey rescued her. When the transmission started going haywire, she ran her car back home, and then ran back into her mansion in a flash, and then phoned him and threatened to sue him and burn down his showroom, and/or kill him. Mr. Wormwood is the secondary antagonist.

Mrs. Zinnia Wormwood is the mother of Michael and Matilda Wormwood and the wife of Harry Wormwood. Mrs. Wormwood plays Bingo five times a week. Mrs. Wormwood is more concerned about looks than getting an education. Mrs. Wormwood has a soft spot for Matilda. In the movie Mrs. Wormwood's first name is Zinnia. In the musical Mrs. Wormwood loves ballroom dancing.

Mikey Wormwood is the 10 year old son of Harry and Zinnia Wormwood and the big brother of Matilda Wormwood. In the movie Mikey bullies Matilda and his nick name for her is dip face. Mikey wants to be an only child. Mikey is an ordinary child unlike Matilda. In the book Mikey leaves his little sister alone.

Thank you so much. I do make the characters to look what I see from the book and not only the movie.
It is kind of a mix between the different forms the looks on the characters. Not look like the actors from the movie.
