*EDIT* I just woke up, and walk my daughter to her bus stop, feeling grumpy walking home to go on my computer. and now my world just turned over with a great smile. :) thank you so much for a DD. it's been almost 9 years being a Deviant member and never would of think of of have something awesome on my work. thank you so much! :hug:

*EDIT EDIT* to all tho asks about the idea, I thought about it around christmas 2 years ago when my husband and I had a tight budget on Christmas presents for his and my family. ever since we are animal lovers, I put our old cat in our old 2010 portrait as to be the part of our family. his and my family love our portraits. ;) 2 years later we have 3 additions to the family and I'm gona do the same thing this Christmas but in a new idea to send them. :D

Your work is so creative and wonderful. I love how different this is. I have some very old cameo jewelry from my grand-mother in black and white your work reminds me of those. So beautiful.

thanks, :D I tried to cut them with paper and scissors the first time I tried silhouettes, but my left hand with right handed scissors just don't mix. that's why I rather make it in photoshop. :P

i think this is wonderful :) i love the open form of this focal point! Just the lines with in lines and the white lines meeting the other white lines like flowing valleys. I think you should highly consider doing an inverted version :) or a portrait inverted. I think it would make them look like paper cut outs with shadows on them (the way the white lines follow the edges).

thanks. :) it was kinda sorta the part of the idea, because I remember a couple of my old friends had them made when they went to disneyworld. I always wanted to have mine done but nope, my parents never took us. after I thought about it 2 years ago, I searched tutorials on how to make them and it became my passion to create silhouettes in my style. they are fun to make. ;)

Lovely! I really like the way you've sort of "re-thought" the traditional family silhouette (or maybe I just haven't seen enough portraits...)
Anyway, this is really unique and nicely done!
