Being an Asmovian is clearly a visual story telling endeavor.
I figured it would be a novel but then I kept seeing her face as she bent down to wish her blessings on the statue. Now I can’t unsee it.
So I’ve come up with the information for the first 15 panels so far. Shots. Dialogue. Nothing too fancy. Perhaps a page or few at most. But I want to test it out and see how well I do with it.
I need to figure out a name for the heroine–or to leave her nameless as the folks of the second foundation do not use their real names in public, until I absolutely have to give her one.
I have an iPad sitting here with Clip Studio Paint and I could get it started as we speak but I want to use my Wacom, and it’s airbrush which I get tomorrow because while I’ve had it for a while I didn’t do much with it other than the first attempt at a comic.
I think I’ll try the Loomis method of head drawing since I’ve only done front on portraiture up until this point with sharpies and digital pieces.
I’m thinking she’s on a planetary level cruiser moving millions of beings to a new planet as the foundling foundation member for that outpost. She’s already posing as a well to do artist with the intent to put up the next marker for the travelers that come to pass as set up per the foundations wishes. But she’s just come back to her bunk after watching Trantor collide with its sun and go super nova (I need to check the physics of this to be true or not, instead of what I want it to be) and found a note that says “we know” on it before it spontaneously combusted.
So there’s an enemy there somewhere on the ship, and she had no idea who it is or what their motives are. Or if they’re even enemies at all.
Through out the story she’ll meet people who, as the multi disciplinary scientists, set up the terraforming–a word long lost to antiquity but used nonetheless. Robots do the heavy lifting, even if they are sentient they have come to have a statute of rights about their livelihoods that allows them to coexists with this current generation of humans. As she meets these people I’ll explain how they could be used in our current formation to fight climate change if at all possible. Some of it may be sci-fi, some of it hard science.
So far these are some of the designs/machinations I’ve come up to tinker with throughout the story in my past year of study:
I. Generators. Townsend Atom-level Generators T.A.G.s
II. Vertical Farms. The basic. The improved. The most abundant.
III. Coastal Erasure – attempts at informing the public/U.N. What can be done. Planning Accordingly.
IV. Light Based computers using crystal lattices as mathematical operators. LIGO Method.
V. Creating a white hole using T.A.G.s. and Electron density Fields.
VI. Bending Black holes using heavy atoms within the confines of White Holes.
VII. Clearing off negatively charged dirty Solar Panels using Electrons subsinks.
VIII. The Efficiency Play.
IX. Destroying Cancer Cells with a T.A.G. powered system.
X. Direct to brain chemical interface using Biomedical Stent.
XI. Healing Scar Tissue JRE 945
XII. Picometer Tunneling Scanning Microscope.
XIII. Spinal Nerve Damage Repair/Circumvention using dual synced Pulse rates.
XIV. Dimpling and Pimpling Silicon to get any shape needed for production methods using N/P Type Doping.
XV. Fighting Asthma with a carbon based mask.
XVI. Carbon Inverted Heat Condensor.
XVII. Artifical Synapses/Electrolytes First Gen Electron. Second Gen Light-based.
XVIII. Using Below Freezing Carbon (expansive) for near any element printing. To set up the Wave
XIX. Diffusing peripheral vision to shorten the distance and thickness of goggles or eye wear to be glasses level thin for ar uses. For those that don’t want to implant directly due to government overreach.
XX. Enriching Graphene to become closer to pure pco. (Denser.)
XXI. Traveling near light speed using compressed black and white hole combinations using expressed atoms to allow compression in spaces vacuum.
Perhaps her goal is to stay there for a decade or few and see that everything turns out to Seldon’s plan. Then she moves onto the next planet going at light speed.
I’m not too sure yet. More to think about while I work. But I’ve written pages on each of these subjects, done diagrams, stored diagrams mentally, and I think this may be an interesting way to disseminate information into the public, if I can make the comics well drawn enough and pretty enough to keep people interested with some action. Perhaps an attack/disaster befalls the fledgling colony.
So much to think about. Fun times.
Pleasurable day to you all.
