DEMENTOR by Jerome-K-Moore DEMENTOR by Jerome-K-Moore
Unused Warner Bros Marketing Art, HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN, Dementor. Pencil.

This piece caused a major meltdown for me. Essential information regarding how these creatures were to behave in the film was withheld for whatever reason, and this rendering was rejected for not conforming to their concepts. I was only told AFTER fully rendering the details according to an APPROVED sketch by another artist, that a Dementor's arms would never be raised that high. Never mind that this version looks dynamically cool! Grrrr!!! Okay. Just gimme my paycheck.

Hello, I am currently working on a Harry Potter tattoo themed leg sleeve. I'm designing my dementor tattoo right now, and was wondering if you minded if i used your work as inspiration for the tattoo? You are incredibly talented :)

I remember hearing where J. K. Rowling got the idea for Dementors, but how did she come up with the name?

Also, are there any mythological or supernatural creatures similar to Dementors? I ask because I wanted to do some research for a personal project.

I hope I didn't sound like I was asking a stupid question, it's just that when I heard that the Dementors were used as a metaphor for clinical depression, I wanted to know if there were ghosts, demons, or mythological creatures similar to them. The only thing I can think of are psychic vampires (depending on how you portray them), but I was hoping to find something more original.

I do not believe that everything Jo Rowling created for her wonderful stories was derivative, or merely a translation of preexisting mythology.  Although there may indeed be a fictional entity that closely or directly correlates to the Dementors, it is quite possible that Rowling simply assembled these creatures from diverse sources (ghosts, vampires, etc.), and they do not exist anywhere else in literature.

haunting and elegant at the same time! I think the height of the dementor's arms is purely pedantic. Looks fine to me - and a little bit old-school creepy-horror-movie-without-the-cheesiness!

Glad you left the hands up. It's different when reduring a drawing then an animated character. The pose must strick fear while the animated character has motion to portray persona.

haha, this is epic. i love the way the dementors were portrayed in the films. however, i wasn't impressed with the anamitronic dementors in the harry potter ride at universal. if an artist as inexperienced as me can point out little things that would have made it more true to the movies, you know it's bad.

Well, it's all about the illusion of reality, not reality itself, and live attractions have far more limitations than their cinematic counterparts. I say, give them a little more slack.

There's also a pickier attitude regarding movie special effects nowadays. I'm guilty of this as well. We artists do have a more trained eye for noticing details. But this is a generation of movie lovers who have consistently been allowed to "peek behind the curtain" to see how the "magic" is done. While this is certainly fascinating and educational, it's undeniable that a great measure of innocence has been lost. People become harder to fool, and harder to please.

i agree entirely. but even dimming the lighting would have improved the illusion. aragog and the womping willow were fantastic, so i have to wonder why the dementors weren't. but i see what your saying about giving slack.

Except that you can scare away a Dementor with the Patronus; a lawyer would sue you for using the Patronus against him/her.
