Fisheye Placebo: Frey by yuumei Fisheye Placebo: Frey by yuumei
This is a character design that I did a while back for my future graphic novel, Fisheye Placebeo 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

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.

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

nice art, very inspiring. I love coming back to your gallery.
