The King in Yellow by Grivetart The King in Yellow by Grivetart
"Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa."

The King in Yellow -- Robert W. Chambers

It's reminds me of the king and queen in Pan's Labyrinth.
Awesome art. I really like the way the clothes are moving.

And like a lot of dreams, there's a monster at the end of it.

This looks like something out of one of Guillermo Del Toro's sketchbooks!

I just started reading this book. Funny enough, I can't seem to put it down...

Tu utilises un petit truc pour ces effets de déformation et tension sur le "drap" du personnage, ou tout fait main ?

The soft layers of orange from the sun that you did was magnificent!

Personlly I'm not really a fan of "gentle, round edges", so I also loved how your lines and details appeared sharp and slender.

I dig it 100%. :)
