Your recent photoshopping make me think you are developing a library of Old One royalty. This one being the jestor, the prior being the queen.

I just sort of drew it without rereading HP's descriptions again... The head's a bit large.

Wow, those drawings are brilliant!

Have you considered compiling several of them in a plate, in the manner of Haeckel's Art Forms of Nature? It could look rather like this.
