Fisheye Placebo: Solo for the Self by yuumei Fisheye Placebo: Solo for the Self by yuumei


More drawings for my future graphic novel, Fisheye Placebo :D This is Frey playing the electric violin. It's plugged into his headphones and silent to the rest of the world. He does when he needs to plan out the next strategy to fight against a totalitarian regime.

You can see the violin design here

The background words say "WAR IS WAR" on repeat. This phrase is traditionally used as an excuse for extreme war time cruelty. It's essentially saying "war is meant to be cruel so that's what you get." Although Fisheye Placebo will be more about cyber warfare, I think the war time mentality can still apply and can cause extreme psychology damage to those involved.

Frey is silently playing the violin on the outside, but a war is ranging on the inside.

This is absolutely beautiful!! I have no words *_____*
By the way, you didn't say in your description about T.O.U, but can I get your permission to render this image? (basically remove the background and make it a transparent image, for the purpose of making forum signatures, etc.)

This is absolutely amazing. I love the design of the violin, and the fact that it can only be heard by the person wearing the headphones.
