Silhouette of dancer and daughter

I made this silhouette as a gift for a new family. The mother is a ballet dancer and she’s holding her new daughter while warming up at barre. I used the super-matte Black 2.0 paint over draftboard for the silhouettes and walnut and maple plywood for the barre, frame, and background. This was a pretty simple project except for the process of cutting out the image in Photoshop, importing it into Illustrator, then creating and refining the outline. Here’s the photo that I used to create the silhouette.
