Read the story. One of the best, hands down.

The horror is very subtle and creepy, and the terror is well-paced as it builds towards a frightening climax. It pushes against our comfort zone with a literally unearthly menace that remains unrivaled in its utterly alien portrayal, as well as in the implications the Colour's existence raises about the universe and our place in it as a result. The horrific ways the Colour affects its surroundings and living things is just outright disturbing. 

It was Lovecraft's personal favorite in horror. It's now my personal favorite in horror.

Yes, and he's using the fear of the unknown in the best way possible. My favorite horror author too, still :)

xD nice! it's not exactly as I have imagined it though haha, so maybe i'll redraw it at some point. when I start painting better :D It's strange when you draw something from a book, you think you have a clear idea, but when you start drawing it turns out that's not quite so :D
