Summer Project initial stages - silhouettes

After turning the original images into silhouettes in Photoshop, I re-arranged them to make some interesting design silhouettes. I have not used this technique much before, but after some inspiration from seeing design development from silhouettes and looking at the past years work with silhouettes I feel this being a great way to produce multiple ideas quickly and instinctively.

Some of these have really interested me, being 15, 12, 7, 18, 29, 3. I was thinking of mechanical working for the majority of these, can't wait to start drawing these and designing them!

Hopefully I will show you more progress over the next couple of days. Although I am not sure whether to draw these digitally and try out the tablet or focus on traditional medium, I think I'll mix and match.

looking forward to seeing everyone's work too!
