I love how the Harry Potter movies envisaged the characters, but fans of darker and more twisted interpretations will love this creepy concept art.

The beautifully illustrated new movie companion The Creature Vault reveals a whole bunch of fascinating early concept art for the Fantastic Beasts of Harry's world - check out these dark versions of The Marauders...

Sirius Black IS Charles Manson

Sure, he's been going bonkers in Azkaban for an eternity, but this is a kind of scary the dementors might go running from. Such a cool look, I'm a little sad we didn't get to see heavily tatted-up Sirius in the movie.

I like this interpretation of Pettigrew - he's kind of serving up some Series of Unfortunate Events-style creepy cartoon rattiness.


Lupin... Are you a zombie now?

Lupin's working some White Walker eyes right here - I think that the deeper, more dramatic scars would have worked really well on screen (although they might have been a bit scary for the kids!)


If you're desperate to get your hands on this gorgeous new addition to the Harry Potter books, you can buy your own Creature Vault here.


Would you have preferred these Harry Potter characters darker, like the original concept art?
