Four vector people "in silhouette" - simple but effective design. Drawn by hand in Adobe Illustrator, inspired by a graphic scheme seen elsewhere. Very good practice for using the Pen tool and reflecting lines in the vertical axis. Alt-click to change direction (sharper corner), drag handles in 45 degree (mostly 90 degree) multiples for the cleanest following lines - this is done by shift dragging with Pen. Joining lines reflected in axis, and punching out shapes (facial details) by using Pathfinder "minus front".

Remove the stroke for presentation (handy to use when drawing) and one colour fill will bring each character to life!
