That diagram really only works as drawn to illustrate the result, but there would really be many more light sources of stars all around even further behind the black hole, where taken all into account would probably make it impossible to determine a silhouette at any range greater than the event horizon and therefore no silhouette.

I drew up this comic to illustrate the idea.There will always be warped light paths around the black hole that would only display what is around or behind it. Even if the black hole would have a determinable diameter, the angle of approach where a normal body of that diameter would obstruct the light path to an observer's eye would not be apparent for the black hole as light greater than the angle of obstruction would be funneled into the focal point, but at just above the event horizon it can be assumed that light paths which are being extremely bent very close to the surface would hit the observer, reflect off the observer, go all the way around the black hole and thus be reflected back to the observer. In the event that a black hole has determinable diameter, this reflected image may appear stretched filling much of the Point of View to wrap around the surface diameter. If a black hole has no determinable diameter however, the reflection might seem planar if not inversely oriented in terms of perspective, where you might be able to see light reflecting off the top of your head or bottom of your shoes as if your own image had been stretched out and unwrapped in a similar manner as a UV mapped character texture for a videogame 3D model, if not similar to the "warping" effect in many artistic representations minus the black silhouette. In both cases you probably die by hitting the event horizon and you'll just see a flash of white light from all possible paths of light meeting your focal point, or a really goofy funhouse mirror warped reflection of yourself as light bouncing off the left side of you reflects to your right.
