Mark McDonnell: The Importance of a Good Silhouette

The importance of a good and readable silhouette is of extreme importance no matter in it's simplest basic forms or in the complexity of a highly illustrated visual development piece! A clear readable silhouette will allow you to speak without words and to answer anyones questions . . . even if you're not in the same room.

But where does it come from and why is this so effective?

Nicely in depth. Excellent.
And of course, it all applies to illustration too :)

Great post, something I need to attempt to do more often (I'm so lazy, I know about silhouettes but I don't bother anyway, bad on me).

Classic stuff. The old "Famous Artists" courses emphasized this as well. Are these available in a pdf format? Thanks for sharing the basics - good strong essentials.

The importance of the silhouette can never be overstated. Great post Mark.

Thank you for the kind words guys. I often get caught up in the details and add too something that really does not need it. I constantly have to stop . . . take a deep breath, and continue ignoring the overwhelming coffee induced excitement to "get it down on paper."

• More to come and a big THANK YOU to Randall for organizing this house of amazing information . . .with Rad, Louie, David, Florian and the rest of the gang . . . I can't wait to see what tricks are up everybody's sleeves. Pretty amazing group of artists.

The best thing about art- in my opinion- is that it makes you feel free.
