Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by AudreyBenjaminsen Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by AudreyBenjaminsen
Here we have Roald Dahl’s four famous brats (from right to left), Veruca Salt, Mike Teavae, Augustus Gloop, Violet Beauregarde, and our hero of course, Charlie Bucket. Reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with my Mom is one of my favorite childhood memories, and that memory inspired me to do some character designing! I wanted to experiment with only using graphite drawing and digital color, aiming for a flatter more textured storybook feel. Overall, it was a fun prompt to work with!

I love this. Yes, it definitely has a storybook feel. I don't know, it also reminds me of Norman Rockwell's style. Maybe it's the coloring. =)

Wow, if there was an animated movie, this is definitely how they would look like. 
Especially Veruca. She looks just like the little spoiled, grumpy brat that she is, haha. Amazing and beautiful <3
