Hastur isn't the King in Yellow. The King in Yellow is an avatar (so, in essence, a minion) of Hastur. Some things I really like about this design though.

Amazing...  I have to ask, which variation is it based on?  The original short story, or the Lovecraftian reimagining with Hastur?

Marvelous rendition of a classic Mythos monster *two tentacles up*

This is especially wonderful due to these horrific figures in the back.

More like a page out of an early 80s roleplaying manual, but that's already pretty impressive.

Heh; it's funny how the 80s seem as far away from us as the Middle Ages do. I was thinking about this today while listening to some dungeon synth, marveling at how an old crappy synth didn't sound unfitting at all for medieval stuff; I guess it's the same for a certain artstyle.
