HP Lovecraft's Randolph Carter character concepts

Prerequisite character concepts to work out what I wanted Randolph Carter to look like for an upcoming faux-cover for Lovecraft's short-novel The Dream-quest of Unknown Kadath, which Carter will appear on and appears in. 
As Dream-quest was inspired by The Arabian Nights and various 18th and 19th century oriental novels, I studied mostly the clothing, arms and armor of 7th to 10th century Islamic Umayyid and Abbasid civilizations, which I had an abundance of reference for. The one on the left is the one I finally came to use.
