This is a real trick I learned from my professor in college. If you ever read a Marvel or DC comic and notice silhouetted panels, chances are the real reason behind them was because of deadline crunches.

I actually used this advice today. Saved me an hour and a half of work and looked great!

@lamouchemasquee : "Princes and princesses" was directed by Michel Ocelot. The director of "Kirikou" or "Azur & Asmar". ;)

@Fatman: sometimes though it really suits the style and it isn't made in a lasy way. I think about an anymation movie made exclusively in silhouettes! I think it's 'Princes and princesses' by a woman I forgot the name... It's made of cut out papers, only silhouettes!

They sure are arty to a common viewers, but someone who has a bit more knowledge see them a bit lazy way to do things.

@Svick: that's also another time-saving technique by the way...

Two words: Screentone backgrounds. Another word: chibi.
