I’ve known Miguel for several years now and remember when I met him for the first time. It was at one of the Presentation Summit conferences, and Miguel walked into the Help Center with a USB drive and insisted that we look at his slides!

Several years later, Miguel wants me to see another visual art exercise that he calls Silhuetas, and I think it’s a good idea to share it with all Indezine readers.

I asked Miguel to share the PowerPoint techniques used to create this amazing effect, and here is his response: “Silhuetas” is a visual/video-art exercise developed with PowerPoint v2010 nearly 4 years ago. It contains just 3 inserted images: a silhouette and 2 backgrounds. The backgrounds are PowerPoint shapes filled with textures, and formatted with PowerPoint native tools including gradient fills (lights), a large amount of mixed/multiple effects. All these were leveraged by a few years of acquired PowerPoint experience & skills and…a truckload of “Chinese” patience…
