A lot of people are still asking about when the Fisheye Placebo comics will be updated. As I've mentioned many times before, I hurt my hand years back and had to slow down on drawing. Drawing comics takes many hours to create each panel and all that together to make each chapters literally broke my body.

As a solution, I've been working with a team of 3D artists to build models that I can paint over to help speed up the comic making process. The downside to that is before all of the characters and backgrounds are built, I can't post new chapters. But once they are built, the chapters will come out much faster than before :) Please be patient and understanding of the challenges we're facing, and thank you for all the support over the years.

Here's a teaser drawing of the main antagonist from Fisheye Placebo. His identity has yet to be revealed, so stay tuned ;)

Like a lot of my recent posts, this drawing incorporates a photo background to save my hands from further damage. I'm still working on the video tutorial to show everyone how this is done, and doing calculations for the Thanksgiving Charity sale. More updates to come!

I love the distorted look, perfect reference to the title. It's really cool that you combine photography with drawing.

Aaah this is making me really excited!!! :) <3 I fell in love with Fisheye Placebo and the rest of Yuumei's art around a year ago, and I'm really happy to hear that it's going to continue!! But Yuumei, please take your time to heal, I'd rather wait on Fisheye Placebo than have you draw it while still hurt.

Hope your hand heals. Have you tried using theraputty and getting some trigger point therapy done on all the muscles that might be effecting your hand? Scalenes, to biceps, shoulder muscles all that.

Does anyone know how long it will take for Yuumei to finish the character and background designs in order to release chapters more quickly? Thanks.

Oh. I think I hadn't read that before. I'm sorry.
Like the Homonculi say in FMA, a human body is so fragile. ._.
