For the Summer Nerd Games I did this embroidery of Steerpike of Gormenghast, post-burning, inspired by Fuchsia’s poem:

"How white and scarlet is that face!
Who knows, in some unusual place
The colored heroes are alight
With faces made of red and white."

Steerpike, Fuchsia and Gormenghast invented by Mervyn Peake.  His website:  http://www.mervynpeake.org/

Thank you!   I certainly seem stuck in the black, white and red color scheme.   Cheesy  But I'm planning something with a completely different palette.  Embroidery is being a fun challenge.  I have a lot to learn, especially about how to place stitches more carefully and keep even tension.
