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 are very impressive, great composition, color choices and use of repetition (with the censorship bars).  Also great job telling a story.

Great, great atmosphere and storytelling. You picked your words so well with so few, and this intro has so much punch it makes you want to find out more by default, what with the reverse psychology with the blocked webpage. Very nice.

It seems like Frey killed someone > possibly it was the police guard that was beating him up - hence his friend at the beginning running away and asking Frey over and over again whether this is revolution - as obviously he never meant anyone to be hurt or killed...

that better not be jen getting shot there in the beginning because she is a cool concept

I cant tell who the bad guy is in this story... Mostly because of this clip... But i suppose that is the point?
xSenkai Featured By Owner May 26, 2015
oooh I've been waiting so long for this to come out :) I'm angry at myself for having missed this for two years. But OMG you used the Rise-Night Version X3 so happy. That's one of my fav pictures by you, besides the alt version :) Will definitely enjoy this series. The art is so amazing, and the feels, it's like an overdose cause it's true.  I love how your art always seems to have that in it X3
rendeerful Featured By Owner May 25, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Aaaaaahhhh~  This is so cool! I love the effect of the static and fade into the warning sign. It's so cool, like a move effect but in vertical panels. That's so smart and breaks the fourth wall, allowing the readers to feel censored by whatever government is in the AU.
