Continuing with the Willy Wonka Creature theme I started a few weeks back, here is my version of the Vermicious Knid. I loosely based it on Roald Dahl’s description given in the book sequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory entitled Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator.
In this scene an Oompa Loompa is startled by a Vermicious Knid while picking Snozzberries at night. You see, it’s easier, however more dangerous, to pick Snozzberries at night because they glow in the dark. Dahl never gives a description of Snozzberries so I just winged it. I thought a bio-luminescent fruit was a cool idea and fit the look of the Oompaland I’m creating.
Wonka mentions 2 more creatures; the Hornswogglers and Snozzwangers. Will I draw these last two beast? Probably. But don’t hold your breath. Check out more of my work on my Illustration page.
