Fisheye Placebo: Intro by yuumei Fisheye Placebo: Intro by yuumei


Next >>> Ch0 Hello World


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 )

Here are some of the inspirations for this intro…

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?

Suggester said: "Fisheye Placebo: Intro by `yuumei is a milestone in art - meaningful, powerful, and so damn true.This combination is very deep and well thought out. Very surpassing opinions connected with art. Unique work" For an inspirational artist like `yuumei, we can definitely see how she makes epic milestones in her artworks all the time

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:…

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!
CelestialSecrets Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
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~

1. The United States isn't a Democracy, it's a Representative Republic or Constitutional Republic.
2. Donald Trump is not a Dictator.
3. You are not victims and are not being attacked by Police for no reason, you are assaulting people and looting and trying to pretend you are peaceful.
4. You are not peaceful.
5. The people who are fighting the system are Classical Liberals, Centrists, Constitutionalists, common Conservatives, because the LEFT is the mainstream. 
6. The Culture and Government you depicted in this are Leftist Run and Progressive Funded.
7. Stop being puppets.  
8. Nice artwork.

1. This takes place in China, in what i think is the future
2. Donald Trump is not the leader of China, and Donald Trump wasn’t even a leader at all in 2013.
3. This is FICTION.
4. Yeah, being not peaceful is the whole damn point of this.
5. Refer to 3
6. Refer to 3
7. Refer to 3
8. Yes, it is. Because it’s art. Art. -.-

"Stop being puppets" he says as he makes an assumption that a fictional characterization with no context as to what political or partisan culture it was derived from is "leftist". "Stop being puppets" he says as he interprets a piece of work within the context of his current time frame, not the time frame the work was produced in; attempting to replace the artist's intentions with his own and those of the policies and institutions he supports. "Stop being puppets" said the puppet.

Putting aside the fact that I have fundamental disagreements with this depiction myself, your comment was about as asinine as they come. When interpreting a piece of art, you should consider the time frame in which the art was produced. This is a fundamental part of understanding artistic representation. Not only that, but you make sweeping assumptions of FICTIONAL entities whose institutions they represent are generalized by the artist and aren't made distinctly clear. You're not interpreting the art - you're imposing your own views and values on the art with partisan biases that you've derived. And yet it's others who need to "stop being puppets" :| (Blank Stare)

Like a few people have stated, this isn't taking place in America but a few events are inspired by events that took place in America. While it true that some protests do get out of hand there are a lot of peaceful protests that are met with Violence and police brutality, The artist even brings one up that she attended a march that was peaceful yet met with overwhelming amount of riot it's not fair to say "You are not peaceful" especially since you were talking about America were "Freedom of Speech" and the right to gather and speak out against, believed, injustice exist.

This is an absolutely beautiful piece of art. It has so much feeling behind it, you've definitely earned a watcher off of this!
ShadowPen448 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2017
I remember reading this when it was first released. I was 14 and when you're that age, stuff like revolution and uprisings seem so cool (to me they did anyway). Now I'm 18. I've seen and gained a greater understanding of a lot more things. I feel like now, reading this again, I can fully appreciate it in ways I couldn't when I was younger. I'm really looking forward to new chapters and I'm glad I'm getting to read them for the first time now rather than a few years ago when I wouldn't have been able to get as much out of this story.

I realize I don't really have the right to be acting all wise and sagely - I'm only 18, after all - but I really am a lot smarter than I was at 14 (I think) and so much has changed in my world. Everything feels so different looking back.

Culpa a Trump de todo (?)... USA dio 10 pasos atrás. Y que mal por lo de la balacera :/ No quiero mencionar mucho lo que pasa acá porque me desanima pero básicamente es la hiperinflación y la escasez lo que nos está matando, hay gente muriendo de hambre, todos los que tienen los medios para irse se están yendo, seremos la nueva Cuba c:

y los gobiernos no se eligen solos los eligen los votantes asi que si latinoamerica tiene gobiernos de m... de quien sera la culpa
disculpa si sueno un tanto agrsiva, pero no me gusta que las personas hagan comparaciones de la situacion en mi pais sin conocerla al 100 %
si vas a contestar haslo mediante una nota, que el trabajo de yuumei es demasiado hermoso para estarlo llenando con boberias de politica jajajaja

Nuestros paises compiten contra otros... para ver quien tiene el peor gobierno de todos.

Por ejemplo, aqui, el desgraciado mas hijo de puta que pudo tener uno de nuestros estados le robo dinero al pueblo, pero lo peor de todo fue el hecho de que este animal dio falsas quimioterapias a niños con cancer y vendia medicamentos piratas.
Ahora el esta profugo y con todo ese estado al borde de la ruina.

Podria continuar hablando de esto, pero desperdiciaria mi tiempo...
