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

:bulletblue:FACEBOOK:bulletblue:TUMBLR:bulletblue:TWITTER:bulletblue:



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.

I HAVE THAT VIOLIN!!!! EEEE :D mine is purple! (although it isn't silent, they're actually quite noisy - just sounds like a muffled regular violin) when unplugged just an FYI in case you're featuring it in a scene and want realism)

I love your art, it's so inspired and the colours you choose are so vivid and beautiful

Is Vance based off of Lindsey Stirling?
Their violins bear some resemblance.

It's not my place to judge, but you art is very moving, powerful!
I like your approach.  Don't ever let anyone stop you from painting the truth!  Promise?

I couldn't help but think of the song "Concrete Eden" by electric violinist Ed Alleyne-Johnson. He mixes regular electric violin and distortion and other effect pedals usually used for the guitar.

Before I read the description, I thought the background said 'This is war' And I thought about the song 'This is War' by 30 seconds to mars. Then I read the description and you gave the answer.

But true that. War is war.

Honestly I have tears in the eyes, because of the art and the text you wrote.
I'm a survivor of the Bosnian War and this reminds me of one of a fellow countryman called Vedran Smajlović.
He's known as the Cellist of Sarajevo. During the war, he was playing cello in public to honor victims of the war and at funerals despite the danger he was in.
