Fisheye Placebo: Concept Art by yuumei Fisheye Placebo: Concept Art by yuumei
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 and the headphones guy on the right is Frey

Other character designs

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

Drawn in Paint tool SAI, textures added in Photoshop.

i have a story that although it is a great idea, i am not able to convey my ideas adequately enough with words, so i have come to the conclusion that in order to do it justice, it needs graphics, but i am not good enough of an artist to really satisfy myself with any artistic representation, so i took to recruiting artists, and so far, i got a bunch of  "no" and "im too busy"
but my point is, your art is great, and stylistically matches what i am going for. i recognize that doing an entire graphic novel is a little much, so i was thinking if i could get myself some illustrations to go along with my written story, i am already getting two pictures from other artists, so if you want to do a single picture for me when you have spare time or when you are bored, i would be grateful! i cant pay you but i can send you a copy of my finished project, i know it aint much, but its sumthin, i will credit your art professionally,  and i will send you 1 free copy. if you are interested, reply here and tell me so, and i will tell you about the story and what you could draw for me. i am very open about the subject matter, i wont need a specific scene or anything, i tend to leave alot up to the artist. and thanks for posting all this awesome art, i really like your style, you have good composition skills!
