Fisheye Placebo: Concept Art

414.9K Views1 Collected Privately



Concept art for another graphic novel called "Fisheye Placebo" that I will be working on in the future :D

I won't go into details with the story but it will be about information wars, hackers, and bad roommates lol The glasses guy on the left is Vance Fisheye Placebo: Vance by yuumei and the headphones guy on the right is Frey Fisheye Placebo: Frey by yuumei

Other character designs Fisheye Placebo: Manasvi by yuumei Fisheye Placebo: Robin by yuumei

I know the fish symbol in the title is often used to stand for Jesus in Christianity, but before Christians adopted that symbol, it simply meant fish. So please do not associate any religious meaning behind this work.

As for the title, I won't give away the metaphorical meaning since that's for you to find out when you read the story. However, the technical term for "Fisheye" refers to a type of lens used in photography to produce a wide angle view that also results in a rounded distortion of the image that gives of the same result as a 5 point perspective drawing. "Placebo" refers to the medical term of a fake medicine that's used to trick the patient into thinking they are getting better, and the psychological effects of that false belief might actually make the patient heal. Hence the quote "Through the distorted lens I found a cure."

PS. Some people say Frey looks like a girl. All I can say to that is: part of the plot! (not yaoi btw) lololol
