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?

You know how disturbing it is, reading this comic and start to realise that my country marches right in the same state head on? Your comic is fantastic.

They will be called terrorist so the means justify the actions.
"Terrorist" gives those in power justification to murder anyone they see as a threat or don't abide by their rules.

Mark my words. The day will come when lonely families who are trying to live off the land will be gunned down in their own home and broadcast on the 7 o'clock news as being a splinter cell for some alleged terrorist organization.
We are nothing but consumers to the corporations and sheeple to the Governing bodies.

Oh well, the law passed.
Thank to our deputees, it's always nice to not use your brain when you get some arangments, right ?

Well people, big news, soon you'll just have to lurk at France to see what Fished Placebo was made for.

So Frey will die huh ? I'm pretty upset. ><
Because, in a way, it would be an undestandable end for him, a good way to mark the spirits, to change Vence for good. And it would also mean he stayed true to what cared for him, until the very end. (unlike Vence, who escaped, and will probably regret A LOT of things afterward.)
BUT, but, but. ...I'm not happy. >=[     Frey is so damn cool, why is it always the best that have to leave first ! >< No ! Just no ! You can't leave us with that useless Vence ! Please ! But I guess it would be logical. =\
Aaaaahhhhh. Anyways, I don't know, I'm upset. ><

That's actually not Frey judging by the shape. It's Jen, aka the female cyberpunk graffiti artist that appears in recent chapters (you can tell it's her because the hoody has cat ears on it). I think this is much later on in the story where Vance realizes just how bloody government upheavals can be and he laments (the text is blurred out but you can still make it out) that ''Is this really what me and Frey wanted?''

That looks like Vance... Is he going to die?

this is so well drawn that while looking at it it looks like an animation even though the drawings aren't moving I can see the movement. It's fricken amazing.

This looks phenomenal! You're drawing style is absolutely beautiful and, even though I don't know what this webcomic is about, the story sounds very intriguing.

I seriously just love your work, Yuumei!! And you render your artwork so amazingly! I've been wanting to render my drawings like that, but I can never do it right.
Alexielios Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
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 :)
Bekicotman Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2015

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  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
wait a minute.
at the end it says
Frey, is this the revolution you**************
