We then created a shadow figure (silhouette) of our final caricature from an A3 sheet. I thought it would be more effective to show the figure from the side to emphasise the curved back and exaggerate his consumption of camomile tea with a large bottle and an extended straw from which he can always drink.
The silhouettes all turned out very effectively and looked quite amazing all together on the wall. I really enjoyed this activity because I feel that it helped me develop characterization skills which would be important when for example developing characters for a theatre or film piece.
