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?

I love your work :) Especially Fisheye Placebo !

I was wondering : how did you do the bug effect in the end? Is there a tuto or something you used? Or you did it yourself? Could you do a tuto of how to do it please?

Thank you :)

Questionablexfun Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2015  Student General Artist
Amazing!! I'll be sharing this all over 
Shokomon Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2015
Wow. Just wow. This hurts the heart. The emotion in it. It doesn't help that the music I'm listening to just adds a layer of depression to this comic.
What is democracy?
What is justice?
The dark shadows, painfully really snapshots of riots and crackdowns (and it's particular relevancy to some topics in the US), and just the overall feel and mood of this comic... It's just grand. You've done wonderfully. And know I'm curious for more. I'll be faving this, and thank you for making it. 
GrimTales29 Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I just realised... what if Frey dies? and that's why it says ''Frey'' and we can't see his eyes. Mayb he dies at the end and that's what makes Vance regret everything DDD:
KommandoKitten Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2015  New member Hobbyist Traditional Artist
wait a minute.
at the end it says
Frey, is this the revolution you**************

What I take from this is that you are screwed if you try to rebel or make things better, and screwed if you dont.
Amazing beautiful art this is though.

I'm not used to comment, but I really need to do it.

I just can't stop crying. This is exactly what affects me so badly. So, so badly.

I live in Venezuela. It's horrible what happened in February, 2014. I just remembered how much my mother cried for the dead students and all that people suffering. The fear and the panic that I had when I knew that my brother - he was studying on the best university of the country - was on those protests and it was getting late, and that moment, oh that moment, where I felt that a weight was out of my shoulders as I saw him enter through the door. My heart just breaks when I remember those mothers crying for their children, or Lilian Tintori visiting his husband - a politician that fought with us and is still fighting - in jail.

It just hurts. It hurts and it makes me mad that I can't fight. It makes me crazy seeing all these things that we make for a bit of sugar or even toilet paper. It makes me crazy the fact the there's a queue for everything. And, overall, it makes me so mad seeing how the people still votes for the people that made this to my country - our country.

If it explodes again, like that February 12, I wouldn't be amazed. Because we want our lifes back.

I love your artwork, you have a lot of talent. Keep doing what you're doing and don't change, please. <3
That's absolutely terrible. :hug:   don't know if this will be of any comfort to you, but I'd be extremely interested in knowing any way for me to be of help. I'm just a kid, I guess, but I still will do anything in my power to stop this, or at least to help, if there is any way that I can? Thank you for reading.
lHereComesVi Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2015
Thanks for your kindness, really. I appreciate it. But, just knowing that you and all the people that read my comment - even if they didn't reply - it's more than enough.

Some people lets those facts appart just because they're in a different country and I just have to admit that your comment really surprised me - and gave me hope, too.

It's just that I want people to know that we're not fine. At all.

I went to China and stayed there for 6 weeks straight and I was told to never type down those words at all. I never did. But everyone else in my class lost their internet for awhile.

Maybe China'll ban this one if they accidentally see it.........doubt it'd happen today. Don't think the Chinese Government would do another massacre anyways, it'll probably get secret reporters
