_______________________________________________


The first part of Fisheye Placebo is finally out! :D Thank you all for being so patient while I worked on the research and preparations. The next part will be coming out soon in a week! (If the image is not loading for whatever reason, try this tapastic.com/episode/2139 )

Here are some of the inspirations for this intro yuumei.deviantart.com/art/Insp…

Fisheye Placebo


:bulletblue:Original webcomic by Yuumei (Wenqing Yan)
:bulletblue:Genre: Cyberpunk, Cypherpunk, Fiction, Psychological

_______________________________________________

Living under an authoritarian regime is not fun. Extensive censorship meant no Facebook, no Youtube, and no porn.

Fortunately for Vance, being a hacker makes scaling the Great Firewall a walk in the park. With the free web at his fingertips, Vance should be happy but he’s not. Maybe there’s something missing in his life that porn just cannot replace.

Maybe it’s a girlfriend.

So it’s not weird at all to hack into the university to assign himself a hot female roommate, right? That’s just taking fate into your own hands, or something along those lines, right?

Too bad fate had other plans in mind and Vance is dragged into a crazy conspiracy to overthrow the government by his most-definitely-not-female roommate.

College is meant to be exciting, but not this exciting. Between failed dates, failed grades, and maybe not quite failed hacks, Vance will slowly come to question the morality of his actions and the true price of freedom.

Is this what democracy looks like?

The police in this comic are not like real life cops. So while some cops might be violent and really corrupt, but the truth is that most cops are good workers.

Okay, so I read all the progress so far on this maybe like a month ago. I've been listening to this song for a while, wondering why it just felt *familiar* and conjured up a "vibe" I've felt before, until just now I realized I've been associating it with this particular graphic novel, totally subconsciously. Now that I've noticed it, I suddenly realize how much it encapsulates the feel I got from reading Fisheye Placebo?? But at the same time I don't know what it is about the song that makes me "feel" my personal version of the Fisheye Placebo "vibe". Maybe Frey's violin has something to do with it? :D Still weird, as I listen to a LOT of violin music. Associating this particular song is pretty arbitrary, I think..

It's weird, I've always "associated" different media together, like a video game I was playing with a show my mom was watching at the same time, or two songs I discovered on the same day -- but it's never happened before where I subconsciously associate a song with something I read a month earlier.

Anyway, here's the song I'm talking about: www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9NM-y…

Hello, Yuumei. I was going to ask if I may borrow some of your wonderful artwork for my books on Wattpad. If you want me to pay then just say no because I cannot purchase art at the moment but if you want me to give you credit y then say yes. Thank you!

Heya! I know you don't mean any harm, and I know I can't speak for Yuumei, but -- for future reference, it is generally poor taste to ask an artist to use their work for free. Artists put a lot of time and effort into honing their skill throughout their lives, and then some for each individual piece. Such effort is often terribly undervalued by the public, and it just tends to slip people's minds (it's forgivable), often resulting in artists being asked to work for free or "for the exposure", or to give away rights or use of their art, when in fact they deserve compensation like anyone else, no matter what for (buying for home decor, buying prints, using in advertising, or just to accompany stories). And in this case, Yuumei already uses much (if not most) of her art for her own stories.

Some artists, and Yuumei *could* be one of these, might not mind however you wish to use their art. But for the most part they'll make this transparent, as most artists I've seen will echo what I've said.

I think it's wonderful that you're writing and wanting to further bring it to life through art! However, might I suggest making it completely yours, by illustrating it yourself? I know it's easier said than done, but improving one's drawing skill is super valuable! And it can also give the artist a deeper appreciation for the time and effort it takes, and then one day you could be creating things just as beautifully as Yuumei, but with your own personal flair to it <3 I very much encourage people to be their own artists! :D And good luck with your books!! :happybounce: Writing is a noble skill in itself~
