Art of silhouette

In this Photoshop tutorial we’ll draw black ink silhouettes of beautiful ladies and their brave gentlemen.

We need a photo of a woman or a man made in profile.

Then, she returned the transparency to its place, created a new layer under the silhouette and filled it with white. Added date and name.

Here are some more examples:
