Breaking hydrocarbons/micro-plastics using a physical method/doped graphene.

The problem with hydrocarbon derived fuels is that at a point there won’t be enough fuel created to power the fleet as the global levels are lowered and the fleet increases. Totally useful in slowing the poisoning of the planet but tags power anything indefinitely with no non recyclable waste if production is designed correctly. Plus hydrogen powered cars suffer the same issues as refilling stations for current gen Tesla’s. Plus it still acts like a gas. Non poisoning but it runs out, and whatever trace amounts are left in the runoff from the exhaust cover the traveled areas. You’d move to tags at that point anyway. Plus you’d still need oil for moving parts outside the propulsion system. I bet you could build a full maglev car if you had the time and energy.

I’m assuming they’re just breaking the bond of the weakened particles needed to get residual water, similar to how the helium screen would do that if hydro carbons were cycled through that at the right speed/ angle/rotational velocity. You make a guide up a curved edge, forcing the hydro carbon to orient itself as needed for breakage as the helium spins by running water or whatever over it causing it to spin and clip the bond at it’s needed bond. The fragmented versions would travel and orient themselves at different locations but do the same thing. Leaving water on one side after the screen and the broken chemical bonds on the other. Then it’s a matter of taking the dirty remainder with partial bonds because even atomic tolerances aren’t perfect yet still in the water and screening them at a tighter tolerance, until you only end up with the remaining materials within an acceptable level. Even breaking those into their initial components if needed for near pure collection, which you could then rebond and store or release into the wild to clean out the area. Pure hydrogen, pure oxygen, carbon to be broken down for reuse.

I suppose there are other atoms like helium where they’re non bindable but larger. It just means the tolerance differences are wider so more would get through potentially though you could likely get a heavier more powerful breaking mechanism out of them though they would need a larger pushing force.

You could just use straight carbon and orient oxygen or hydrogen from the hydro carbon, whichever needs to be broken off first and create meshes that jut out like grater or tumblers and break off and catch the atoms. They would be moved down the line through vibrational or rotational means, whichever you wanted. You could ever create a radius of cylindrical hydrocarbons and break off the atoms as needed. It would be purely mechanical and leave nothing but carbons to be broken down in the center of the device. Or you could use a straight edge atomic grater and shave each side of their non carbon atoms.

You would have to allow full bonding of the grating atoms and passage so atoms wouldn’t jam up the system. Also you would have to be constantly moving the assembly so they didn’t float or sink into the passageway.

You would need to bring the grater down with enough force to hold part of the hydrocarbon in place and break off a chunk… by vibrating the atoms into place before swinging them up into the reduction system. Then you reorientate the partial hydro carbon and repeat the process until only carbon falls through to a gathering stage. You would also have to remove the water molecules with a vacuum as they break off or it would just recondense and form new hydrocarbons or a layer of dirty water in the system. It depends on how many times you need to break the bonds really.

Breaking atomic bonds. Since different atoms have different bond energy strengths graphene may not be big enough to sever the bond. But if you hit the weakest point of the point hard enough it may be able to overcome the overall strength (there is some loss between atoms but reinforcement at part of the bond where it is the most complete, around those areas are weaker areas where you’d want the separator to push under and break the bond. You’d also have to super cool the hydrocarbons to lengthen the bond length been the atoms without causing the water molecules to freeze, unless that’s helpful.

You could also use a tumbler method of grating the molecules and gathering the remainders on the other side and depending on which side you grated from you would likely form other larger hydro carbons before being able to break them down to their original stage again. Need to look up the types.

Couldn’t you dope the outer layers of collection atoms so that they attract the hydrogen atoms more than the static carbons in the hydrocarbons. If they’re electrically based you could cycle them on and off at key moments and vacuum the water into a collection plate. You could use doped graphene. You could then rotate them around the outer ring so that they dope concentrically and anti-concentrically at opposite levels pulling the atoms around. It’s slower, but once they “attach” to two or more open atoms they have a higher chance of breaking.

You could also, if needed, build meshes with exact holes for the hydrocarbons to lie flat into and then pull them apart from the inside by forcing them outward and bending them into some obtuse space.

This would also work with micro plastics.

Anyway it’s an idea.

More from Mikeymegamega and keeping your creative juices flowing.

 

So I followed along with some more of his tutorials. My blue line work seems better than my finished line work at the moment and that’s okay. I actually got the idea of construction lines from RapidArtVids who is another great teacher. I tried a skin painting tutorial as well as a few poses and a wet tshirt position. Can’t say the guy draws pervy stuff but he’s an excellent teacher and I joined his Patreon so that I can learn as much as possible from him before moving onto the next artist.

I also tried drawing Wonder Woman from a reference and they turned out pretty well. It’s easier than anime hair since you just make them a single shape and then add in the detail after instead of drawing in shapes that can often look flat or unflattering along the way without realizing it.

I did set up my wacom to include an undo and a flip canvas button now so I can get to those easier. I think I need to add an alt button and I should be good for most things I’m doing.

I bought an Asus ZenAC usbc monitor this last week or so and its decided to only work from the lower two ports of the Mobilestudio Pro without a usb adapter which is a pain in the ass and hopefully not a sign of destruction I can’t get fixed in some way. Compared to the Lepow which cost half of that and included speakers it was a complete waste of money. But having two 15.6 inch monitors that power just by the device they’re plugged into is absolutely handy. Now if I just went anywhere that meant using them in public I could show them off, but that’s neither here nor there.

As it is I spent the weekend working on biomedical patent drawings, first in Solidworks which after an entire day I gave up on because it just looked like garbage and  it finally sunk in that I’m paying someone else to create drawings of the proper thing. All I have to do is get the scraps together, which I’ll do today after a morning drawing session (that started at 2 a.m. for some reason). Hopefully I’ll have enough to get it done before a manic phase eats into my limited funds. Not that it’s an excuse or anything, but it’s definitely a sign that I’m unwell and have little control at the time.

To the 19 people following me: Thank you so much. It means the world to me to have someone to if not chat with, at least know you’re there to have a read when you’re bored. If you’re in a chatty mood let a fella know.

Today I send out the package with my brother’s birthday gift in it, and I’m hoping he likes it. The stipend I get through my merch sales isn’t much but it was enough for the shirt, and I can just afford posting after getting petrol this morning so it shouldn’t be too bad.

If you have ideas for things to draw or want to see something made let me know and I’ll consider it. It may help get the juices flowing.

Have a wonderful day.

Learning a bit of perspective.

Today so far has been learning about foreshortening and above and below perspectives. These are my attempts as I followed along MikeyMegaMega here. Who, other than a fascination with large breasted women from the videos I watched, was extremely insightful about his technique and made it a breeze to get into it straight away and since I had been starring at a man make huge tits for an hour I decided to try a small nude, which I don’t normally do.

I’ve had a tough couple of days as I missed my chance to go to Vegas to see my younger brother perhaps for the last time before I move home back to New Zealand. It depends whether we’re up here for the holidays of not but if I am he said he would visit and that’s a great feeling. I just made him his birthday present but haven’t told him what it is yet.

 

lenin shirt

I hope he likes it. I make a little bit of money selling stickers and shirts per month that once in a while I get to treat myself to a new hat or shirt or shoes through paypal. So I made and bought him this with that money. It’s Lenin in Communist colours. He commissioned me to a painting of it but it won’t be done in time so I decided he might want to wear the art instead of just looking at it. I love wearing my own designs over corporate logos and fandom pieces because it makes me feel unique and just a minor designer at heart.

I’ve been upped on prazosin for ptsd nightmares. Childhood-adult abuse isn’t a joke. Now I take two or three mgs a day–I’m not sure. I forget honestly. I’ve got 19 bottles of meds to look at tonight and I can’t even remember if I took this mornings meds. I just know I’m sleeping until twelve most days after waking to feed the girls.

I had an interesting conversation with my psych though. Apparently only seeing one person once or twice per week isn’t a whole lot of human contact and isn’t healthy but I don’t know how to remedy that when I have so little money.

I have a mensa membership so I thought I might do the breakfast with them and see what they’re like. I wasn’t a huge fan of them when I joined the first time. I got a perfect score on my I.Q. battery and they were still condescending. I broke the damned test so it couldn’t give a proper reading by maxing it out and they’re like there’s only one score that qualifies you for the coveted membership. I do like the card though. Makes you feel like a triple A member.

Oh on some good news I’m down almost three pounds and if it keeps going I may be able to go on a mild stimulant to help me stop binge eating when I feel like punishing myself.

Okay this is completely random. But I designed a new type of (I think–information is hard to come by through wikipedia and theses) nuclear reactor using single domain micromagnetics using hexaferrum eplison ferrite steel. Basically you compress the ferrite until it change atomic structure and it gains addition atoms which is where the radioactivity comes from. Plus because its a magnetic material if you surround it by pyrolytic carbon (which repels both poles equally) you’ll get forced movement, so you get the spin needed to traverse graphene wiring to gather energy like a regular generator, but these are as small as physically possible so you could replace battery and be scaled up to any size to produce any amount. You just need vastly more pco than rotational material. You can also coat it in SiO4 (quartz) to keep it contained and warmer in space travel/durable.

But all you need is 13 GPa to compress the ferrite into hexaferrum, carbon has a GPa rating of 26 and you us diamond toppers and stoppers on the bottom and they have a rating of 542 GPa so that the whole thing is contained. And the greatest thing is if the thing opens it reverts back to ferrite and loses it radioactivity very quickly meaning no/less chance for damage to the environment and the user.

I got so annoyed at people ignoring me that I put the chemical break down on a hat and wear it around town. So far no ones guess what it is, but it’ll be in the Asimov comic since the whole point of the comic is to expand on my designs.

I even sent what I had to Marc Gibson at Nasa but he ignored me since I’m self taught and could be wrong. Or perhaps scrapping his email wasn’t the way to go, haha. Who knows. Who cares.

The inner binding agent between the ferrite atoms are carbon. You may not be able to tell by the white squares but they a 12 phase or two 6 phase generators since you use both sides of the domain at once or you end up with single domain micromagnets over time as one side invariably breaks down before the other. This way they break down closer together if the half lives of the atoms is relatively closed (based on atom diameter/circumference).

Ugh I’m so bored. I wish to create to my potential.

Have a wonderful night.

Character design is freaking hard.

So I made this black and white one from a photo reference last night. Learning Portrait 20  8.7.19.png

 

And then I spent this morning trying to come up with a compelling character and I think I’m closer but not just there yet. I keep watching youtube videos and they’re making everything look so easy it’s almost infuriating.

So then I make this:

Mediocre at best. But much better than what I had a few days ago. So now all I need to do is keep practicing until I get to the point where my character design is legitimately where it needs to be and then I can move onto the next stage and start getting the story sorted properly. It’s going to be a slog but totally worth it if I can do it right.

I’ll post again once I have a better piece.

Have a wonderful afternoon.

So here’s a little bit of work done trying to get the look that I want. She’s closer to the character in my head, but now I’m going to sit down and draw until I can get as close as possible. This is all very fun stuff but it’s challenging as I have no way to making speeding up the process.

Though I must admit I do love rapid fire art for the help on youtube.

Figuring out a side view without any prior knowledge.

First check out this persons helpful video on how to learn to do it quickly and efficiently.

I mean look at the difference already. She’s supposed to be in her late 19’s-early 20’s and she looks like she’s about to go down for a nap at her hospice. Terrible job haha. Is that triangle supposed to be a thumbnail? Really? Then I found that video and these are the newly done improved versions of side views of a man and a woman. So I’ll be spending today tweaking a woman’s face until I get the right view down. Then I’ll redraw the top panel and get down to the next part for the day. Shouldn’t take all day I don’t think. I’m a little scared of the hairline but it’s hopefully not too bad when it’s done.

Have a wonderful morning.

Also if anyone knows how to be successfully start a patreon I would appreciate any and all help available, since I have no idea what I’m doing there but if I can make a little extra cash eventually it would be nice not to live of just food stamps. Did you know you can’t really afford vegetables at $.95 per meal? Radishes, the cheapest vegetable in the area, are $.40 and I’m not supposed to eat them since they think I have a tumor on my pituitary gland. It’s all carbs and it’s all bad for you. Life is weird and that last paragraph made little sense. Oh well.
