Fisheye Placebo: Solo for the Self

More drawings for my future graphic novel, Fisheye Placebo :D This is Frey playing the electric violin. It's plugged into his headphones and silent to the rest of the world. He does when he needs to plan out the next strategy to fight against a totalitarian regime.

You can see the violin design here Electric Violin Design by yuumei

The background words say "WAR IS WAR" on repeat. This phrase is traditionally used as an excuse for extreme war time cruelty. It's essentially saying "war is meant to be cruel so that's what you get." Although Fisheye Placebo will be more about cyber warfare, I think the war time mentality can still apply and can cause extreme psychology damage to those involved.

Frey is silently playing the violin on the outside, but a war is ranging on the inside.

You speak on your own saying 
""We already have spam alt-accounts who do that already""
I'm not here as a detective to search about you.
I came here more for the art, however I won't let unfair things to just happen in front if my eyes.
Since you confess that you are more than one with alt accounts and what happens here supports your words why to search in order to prove the obvious?
You are some freaks with many accounts, some of you administrators, some others "popular" artists and you are proud of what you're doing! Congratulations!

I've done this very kind of thing with the violin/viola - headphones and electric violin/viola + amp. Your graphic novel is certainly timely!

I'm reminded of Albert Einstein who also played the violin (but never an electric one that I know of). He was a fairly good violinist and would frequently pick up the instrument and practice . . . which helped him clear his mind especially when he was working through (thinking through) otherworldly challenges such as quantum physics and time-space. He purportedly had a great insight one day while working on a particularly tough problem. He had gotten to a point and needed a breakthrough. So, he picked up his violin and began playing. Soon, something just popped into his mind: E=MC². 

Love your concept . . . love your drawing . . . waiting for the novel! Good luck to Frey!

Your work is beautiful! There is a lot of emotion behind it, and you can feel it.

My sister is writing a few stories (and working on a script for a game) where some of the characters use music to center themselves for hacking and sanity. Would you mind if I showed her this and she borrowed the idea? If she ends up using it we (I am the editor) will be sure to credit you as well if you wish.

I've always wondered why Frey wears headphones all the time, my idea is that his electric violin can be set so that he can listen to it through his headphones (kinda like how you can listen to your phone with headphones)

I suddenly remember Saeran because of the design of his shirt. It kinda looks like MintEye to be honest but nonetheless, beauiful work
