Vector Silhouette Day 2: Creating Our Reference Images

Today’s essential question: How can I create strong reference images to later trace over in Illustrator?

Today we will either create our reference drawings or take our reference photos. Make sure your image uses the most powerful point of view for the concept you are trying to convey. The examples below illustrate what I am looking for.

Sample Reference Photos (you must take the photos yourself – do not use internet images created by someone else):
Same Sketch (use a Sharpie to color in the silhouette so we can make sure you have an appropriate balance of positive and negative space):
