Silhouette

Thanks so much for all your wonderful input and accolades for Gabe the Goblin =) I'm excited to really dig into that WIP soon! Anyone have a good drawing of a friendly large eared goblin? I'd love some inspiration!

And now it's time for Sensational Haiku Wednesday, topic: silhouette
 
Shadow of a Man
 
 Just a silhouette
Mysterious, deceiving
Make no assumptions
 
 
Backlit emphasis
Concealing imperfections
Beauty emerges
 
 
 
Silhouette stumper
I misspell every time
Spellcheck proves its worth

Love the devil one and the last - I had to keep sounding the word out as I tapped the keys.

Love silhouettes (yes, I cheated and copied off your word for the spelling).
Especially favored in the sunset with an old barn or house on the horizon or a cowboy standing at the end a barn alleyway with the light behind him.

I think I'll backlight myself in my next photo. An outline of me would do, right?

Hehehe! I misspell it too. That darn h.

Have you ever heard of Jim C. Hines' Goblin series? His books have a big eared goblin on the covers.

Excellent variety here. The last one cracks me up. :)

A friend of mine is working on illustrating one of my children's books and she sometimes posts drawings of fantasy creatures.

Here are some long-eared goblins (or, I think they're goblins):

These are illustrations from a book her mom wrote. (^__^)
