I have been searching the internet to try to find a silhouette of a minifig, something like this

But I am sure you will agree, that is just not quite right

My idea is to produce something like this

Any ideas where I could find one?

Many Thanks

Should be reasonably easy to do with something like LDD or LDraw I'd have thought, create a model of the minifig you'd like with the camera facing dead on and put it against a mono background. Then just remove anything not the background colour in your favourite image editing app and hey presto one minifig silhouette.

I don't want to say that TanTile's silhouette is bad, but I didn't liked the rough lines it has, so I made my own version (which isn't perfect either, it's not really from the front, but a slight angle). You can download the 2658x4168 px .png file here :classic:

What do you want to do with it? The example link isn't working? Just curious...

Thankyou for the smoother version legolijntje.
I want to make like a family lineup picture, inspired by this

OK so I have made some progress with this today, what do people think?

The minifigs are all in the correct proportion to our actual heights (well I measured one of my boys and I'm pretending the other is the same height)

I want to print it in a colour other than black but I'm not sure what yet.
