Does anyone know how to change colors in letters to appropriately represent silhouette? A perfect example is the opening for the movie Superbad:
The 'U' is perfectly a U while having the right change of color to form the silhouette. I am trying to do a similar effect in Illustrator CS6, but no luck. I can create outlines of the text I have into fonts and play with the paths, but these seems tedious, is therein easier way?
