Fisheye Placebo: Frey by yuumei Fisheye Placebo: Frey by yuumei
YUUMEIART.COM:bulletred:FACEBOOK:bulletorange:TUMBLR:bulletyellow:TWITTER:bulletgreen:PIXIV:bulletblue:YOUTUBE

This is a character design that I did a while back for my future graphic novel, Fisheye Placebeo Fisheye Placebo: Concept Art by yuumei about hackers, information wars, and bad roommates :D (don't worry, I'm going to finish Knite before working on this one).

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."

Other character design Fisheye Placebo: Vance by yuumei Fisheye Placebo: Manasvi by yuumei Fisheye Placebo: Robin by yuumei

PS: The fish symbol existed before Christians adopted it, and it simply meant fish, not Jesus. This work is not religious or sacrilegious in any way.

Drawn in Paint tool SAI, textures added in Photoshop.

im just gonna say

i love his design and colour palette ;

this is coming from a person who isn't an artist, but in the art field - because i do literature.

so; i really really like his colour scheme. i've never thought about it, but turquoise, whites and greys fit together like nutella and pancakes. even if it's just colours, it kind of explains his character. i've not really read a lot about this, so tell me if i'm wrong, he seems like someone who's laidback and chill with quite a lot of things, but his expression kinda tells me otherwise, since he looks devious and joking- someone who doesn't take things seriously that often and i like that. the way the turquoise seems to glow, almost like electricity makes me really really happy.

his design; also seems to show off his character. seems very casual and laidback, like he doesn't seem to care if his fashion's bad to other people, he only wears it because he thinks it looks cool. i like how there's fisheye placebo on the shirt, and how there's a fish, with a dot in the middle, making it appear like an eye, and then placebo below the fisheye- the dot seems to glow and it's turquoise as well, since it looks like an iris, and his irises are almost glowing and also the same colour. again, his hair seems messy, hinting that he doesn't care about his own appearance, only focusing on more important things than a person's crappy looks. i'm pretty sure he's supposed to be a hacker? which is even cooler, since he definitely gives off that vibe.

uhh
sorry whoops
i just think frey's design is super cool.

Yeah, they adopted it because people would kill them if they found out they were Christians, it was a way of survival.
