I created this comic portrait inspired by the fact that the website of the German punk band Die Ärzte announced new releases after a long hiatus. I don’t know whether Bela, Farin and Rod, the three members of the self-appointed best band of the world would actually flash hand signs like that, but I liked it as a visual idea.
In contrast to my other artworks, I used a flatter style with outlines in this picture to achieve more of a comic/manga-style. Also, I actually found Farin Urlaub the most difficult to translate into this cartoon style.

On of the roles of the composition of an image is to depict the most important elements of the picture in a clear, recognizable manner. For color pictures, not only the placement of the elements is playing a central role, but the color composition as well.
An obvious method is to separate diffrent elements or layers within the image like foreground and background by different color saturations of a difference in lightness.
There are many approaches for setting up a color composition. To acquire some helpful rules of thumb, it can be useful to look at some of the oldest works of visual design in history: Coat of arms and flags.
