You may (or may not) have noticed that this puzzle doesn't seem to have any pieces. How can it be solved without pieces? The short answer it can't. That's why for this puzzle you must create the rectangular pieces intended for this puzzle. To find these pieces you must use the grids below and solve for them. Once you have all the pieces put them together on the puzzle base in the shape of the silhouette provided. First valid solution gets the checkmark. Good Luck!

Solving the next step:
The final solution to the Shikaku is this:
If there's a request in the comments, I'll write a full step-by-step solution to this. The general solve path is to start with the larger numbers, since they are more constrained in how they can fit in.

The final assembly I found is:
