This is an illustration of the King in Yellow. An insidious being from the book "The King in Yellow" by Robert W. Chambers. If you have read the Repairer of Reputations you may notice a few things I used from that story. One there is the crown that the protagonist would get out of the safe and wear while looking at himself in the mirror each day. I also tried to get a certain look in the eyes. I'm not sure how to describe it, but in the story I had a certain image in my mind, and I think I came pretty close to what I wanted. There is also the few bits of the costume that represent a military uniform. Also in the repairer of reputations the protagonists cousin was suspected by him to be the King in Yellow. That cousin was a soldier, and the protagonist expressed distaste to the mans behavior and uniform. Chambers was a huge inspiration to H.P. Lovecraft and you can see that in his Cthulhu mythos. I'm not sure what I think about the added color, but regardless as to what looked better, black and white or color, I plan on doing another drawing similar to this, but with charcoal.
