In Noctem by AudreyBenjaminsen In Noctem by AudreyBenjaminsen
I was listening to the song “In Noctem” (Into the Night) composed by Nicholas Hooper for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, and felt compelled to doodle some dementors. I liked this design in particular, so I played around with it a bit.

Carry my soul into the night
May the stars light my way
I glory in the sight
As darkness takes the day

Ferte in noctem animam meam
Illustrent stellae viam meam
Aspectu illo glorior
Dum capit nox diem

Cantate vitae canticum
Sine dolore actae
Dicite eis quos amabam
Me nunquam obliturum

Sing a song, a song of life
Lived without regret
Tell the ones, the ones I loved
I never will forget.

Never will forget.

That is awesome :). Reminds me a bit of Egon Schiele in that style and a bit of Arthur Rackham.

So bright, yet so spooky. Love the terrifying void in the dementor's face.

This is so, so nice.... I'm sure you get a lot of compliments but I absolutely adore your lines. They are amazing in complexity, where they are thinner and thicker, how loose yet intentional they seem!

omg.... it reminds me of some earlier work of mine including an illustration i did in 2010 (a ghostly creature looming over a red-head while she had a book in her hands) and works in 2006/7.

I think I'm going to have to check out the rest of your works. So nice!!
