September Night by Tanci September Night by Tanci
For 's contest (that is, if it's still open ^^;), which was to draw Remus in the Shrieking Shack.

Ok...this is probably one of my more intense pieces... Basically, Remus is undergoing his werewolf transformation, but caught the rest of the Marauders off-guard (as you can tell by their gashes).'s where it gets a bit confusing. I wasn't really sure when I drew this if the werewolf curse gets passed on to another person by biting them, or by scratching them. :O_o: I'm hoping it's by biting them... Anyways, James, Peter and Sirius don't have time to change into their Animagus forms, as Remus is going crazy, lashing about and attacking them with his claws. Peter and Sirius are trying to restrain him, while James is contemplating if he should stun his best friend...

:( Now I feel sad. I want to draw another comic.

Outline in Pencil
Colour in Photoshop
Approximately 7-8 hours ('cose I had to redo a big chunk of it)

EDIT: Contest's over! Hm..second place isn't too bad. Thanks for all of your support, guys! :D

It's a werewolf bite that changes the victim. Good job on the artwork! :)

I was calculating the moon phases at each September 1 from 1971 to 1978 and I just found out September 1, 1974 was during a full moon. I wonder how they smuggled him to Hogwarts, because they wouldn't take chances in taking him to the Hogwarts Express.
MissSparkle1 Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2013
well, we now know that only if Remus is transformed would any of them be cursed as a werewolf. Simply being slashed having does cause a few side affects like really liking rare meat and the cuts do not heal. Apparently, if two werewolfs mate on the full moon (as wolves) their offspring will be normal wolves, not werewolves. But the wolves will have higher intelligence than normal wolves. That's what JK has released about werewolves, some werewolf children (wolves) live in the forbidden forest and are no threat to humans.

Wow!! This is great!

I love this. And I especially love the way you drew Remus. He's my favorite in the series, and he looks just like I pictured him. So thank you for drawing this, because it rocks.

you can only turn werewolf if you're bitten, so don't worry.

In the Harry Potter world the curse is transferred through biting.

Aww, poor Moony. You know he'd be really upset in the morning about hurting James. :( Anyway, this is very well done.

Poor Moony having to deal with his wearwolf side..... Love this anyways~
leopardiva101 Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2011
I love it. I faved it about 3 years ago and still go through my 27 pages of faves every week to stare at it again. It's just perfect. It really shows the dark side of Moony's 'furry little problem'. ... I love it.
weepingelf Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2011
LOVE IT! But...they better change to animagi form soon!
Anyway, great job. I love the looks on all their faces. The emotions are really obvious and well done. Poor Peter, Remus may not have been in werewolf form yet but that wound looks nasty.

xkelbix Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i agree, a lot of ppl may not like him, but he wa a marauder back then
DawnToDust Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2010
yeah he was. personally i like peter i don't know why
xkelbix Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i dont like him, but the fanfictions ive read about the marauders era, he seems alright and thats based on what he was suppose to hav been like
DawnToDust Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2010
yeah but u never know with Wormtail they did not really explain like he could have been tortured into it

or Riddle could have convinced him
they did say Wormtail was extremely shy but loved Padfoot and Prongs
xkelbix Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ye its a bit of a mystery, i wish JK would write about the marauders era
DawnToDust Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2010
yeah that would explain loads she could make a new series lol
xkelbix Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist

(MMM Sexay.) Makes me want to snuggle them, the damn (sexay) bastards. (Especially Remus. I love a hot and angry young man when I see one.)
kkbook Featured By Owner May 30, 2010  Student General Artist
they ARE smexy. that's one of the reasons I :heart: the marauders =3
I think this is a great untold story from the harry potter books. nice job ^^
(btw, I love how Peter's crying in the background. I don't know why, but it just fits him)
and just a suggestion, you could've been a little more subtle with the wood pattern from the shrieking shack, but overall, you can probably color better than me ^^'

all i CAN see is diamonds, hearts, clubs, and spades(sirius, lupin, peter, and james), and I WANT THEM ALL BEFORE I GO MAD

You totally need to make more of the Mauraders. They are by far my favorites of the series because we don't really see them in their school days. This is really amazing, by the way. (Sirius is my favorite character when thinking back to their school days and you made him fantasticly attractive :D) :clap:

For lycanthropy to be passed, the person must survive an attack that puts them on the edge of death. Great pic!
PhantomGirl Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2009
(Don't worry, it's biting them that curses them)

Aww...I feel so bad for Remus...I wish there was something I could do....

Your art is so good, I've got to read the books all over again! (Dashes off)
