As I have stated several times before, my kids and I are Potterphiles. I, therefore, decided to draw a Dementor in my sketchbook. Dementors are horrible creatures in the universe of the Harry Potter novels. They drain people of joy, happiness, and hope and feed on darkness, negativity, and despair. Furthermore, they suck people’s souls. In terms of their look, they are reminiscent of wraiths or the Grim Reaper. My Dementor sketch, however, looks like it has been drawn by someone whose soul has been sucked and drained of creative energy or artistic ability. I regret not underpinning this drawing with a pencil sketch because it went wrong from the get go, when I placed the dark inky ovals for the eyes and mouth. So at least that was a lesson learned.
He looks a bit scared to me 🙂
I would be scared too if I had been drawn like that! Ha ha!
Laura you crack me up! He does kind of look like he may have just scared himself by looking in a mirror.
Thanks. I’m always happy to make you smile. 😀
I had no clue Dementor was thing, but this is exactly how I’d imagine such a thing. You captured the feel of the creature well.
Ha ha! Thanks, Mara!
What I love about this Dementor is he looks like he belongs in the story of the three knights from the Deathly Hallows. Perhaps he was torn from Death’s cloak.
That’s really very generous of you to say so. I absolutely love that animated sequence from the movie.
