Since childhood, we have adapted to storybooks because storybooks are believed to be effective media for providing knowledge to children. There are various kinds of contents from storybooks, for example, fairy tales. Fairy tales are well-liked by children because of their interesting stories such as how to respond to life and love for people especially fairy tales always have happy endings. Usually, fairy tales contain stories about fairy life that are very familiar with the world of animals and nature.
Most children will act with something they just understand. If the child has just completed one fairy tale, the child will definitely act like the characters in fairy tales. That is the first effect experienced. In addition, if the child is a typical person who really likes fairy tales they will multiply things that have fairy ornaments in them. If a child is typically a jolly person will usually choose a striking ornament or fairy design. But if the child is the simple type and difficult to guess, they will usually choose a fairy ornament/design that is simple and not flashy like a fairy silhouette.
Talking about silhouettes, shadows created do not have meaning. In fact, the silhouette symbolizes something complex. If the fairy character is formed in a silhouette, it indicates that the fairy character is a mysterious figure that cannot be guessed as easily as just by looking at it using only the eyes. In a silhouette, you can only wish the picture behind the silhouette's shadow based on the lines that make it up. A quite complex right? Therefore, even though the silhouette looks simple, it deviates a lot of deep meaning.
To draw a silhouette does not need a lot of tools such as pencils or colorful markers. You can use color to color the background. For the fairy character that you will draw with the silhouette technique, prepare a pencil, and draw an outline of the fairy character. The important element in the silhouette is shadows. So, to make it look like shadows, fill in the fairy characters that you drew with black. So it looks like a shadow. You don't need to draw a fairy with limb details because it will be covered by the whole black color. So what you draw from fairy characters is the outline. What do you think? It will be easier to understand if you read this while doing it.
