  Mass shooting plot at SoCal high school allegedly thwarted by alert security guard
Posted by: ShineCero - 02-26-2018, 02:36 AM - Forum: Boogaloo Donut - Replies (1)

Quote:WHITTIER, Calif. -- Authorities say they've thwarted a student's plot for a mass shooting at a Southern California high school. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said Tuesday that a security guard at El Camino High School in Whittier overhead a "disgruntled student" threaten to open fire on the school on Friday, just two days after 17 people were gunned down at a Florida high school.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Nicole Nishida told The Associated Press deputies discovered "multiple guns and ammunition" after searching the student's home.

The suspect is a 17-year-old boy, according to the Whittier Daily News. A spokesperson for the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District told the publication the boy threatened to go home and bring back a gun following a disagreement with a teacher over his headphones, which are not allowed during class.

It was unclear if the suspect has been arrested, or who purchased or owns the weapons, CBS Los Angeles reports.

Officials scheduled a news conference for Wednesday.

Jesus, thank goodness the security guard took measures and report to the police about this kid. Otherwise, we'll be hearing more "thoughts and prayers".

Son Goku is a young boy who lives in the woods all alone—that is, until a girl named Bulma runs into him in her search for a set of magical objects called the "Dragon Balls." Since the artifacts are said to grant one wish to whoever collects all seven, Bulma hopes to gather them and wish for a perfect boyfriend. Goku happens to be in possession of a dragon ball, but unfortunately for Bulma, he refuses to part ways with it, so she makes him a deal: he can tag along on her journey if he lets her borrow the dragon ball's power. With that, the two set off on the journey of a lifetime.

They don't go on the journey alone. On the way, they meet the old Muten-Roshi and wannabe disciple Kuririn, with whom Goku trains to become a stronger martial artist for the upcoming World Martial Arts Tournament. However, it's not all fun and games; the ability to make any wish come true is a powerful one, and there are others who would do much worse than just wishing for a boyfriend. To stop those who would try to abuse the legendary power, they train to become stronger fighters, using their newfound strength to help the people around them along the way.

  Helloooooooo
Posted by: kazeryuga - 02-14-2018, 09:27 AM - Forum: Boogaloo Registration - Replies (9)

Hey guys, kazeruga here!

I'm new to site, just fresh off the boat today. Some of you guys might just recall a faint hint of me as "cherrywolfie" from AF back in like 2010, like 8 years ago now ssoooooo I guess probably not.....? Ahaha Sweats 

Well, i was going through my old emails and i realised I got an update of sorts from fullblue and an invitation to this site. Most of you guys have probably alrdy put the whole AF saga behind you so I'm sorry for digging up the past right off the bat Shy  Anywho, i missed being part of a community with the people who made it great for me and i just wanted a little of that back after being swamped with real life, though it's impossible for me to stay up till 5am now when all the action used to begin cuz I live on the other side of the world from everyone else  Sweats  I'll do my best still though! 

Ummmmm, so the newest thing I'm following is Mahoutsukai no Yome, or The Ancient Magus' Bride. I still love SnK/AoT though I haven't caught up in the manga since the cliffhanger where I think Armin or Jean might've died from being shot at on the moving cart. Idc what anyone says, it's gonna be rivetra till the end for me! I love Chihayafuru cuz I think it highlights the beauty of the Japanese language, i dream of the day I can read the Japanese version of the manga and understand it all to it's full potential; in the meantime I just patter around with the rough basics I picked up from anime and from when I was working at a sushi train restaurant in Brisbane while in Uni. I haven't played much of it but I love the FFXIII series for the storyline, HopeRai shipper all the way. 

I..think that's all there is to say at the moment. I hope to get along with everyone and to get to know y'all here!  Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

  The Beyonders
Posted by: ShineCero - 02-11-2018, 03:23 AM - Forum: BoogaVerse: Magic Ascension Arc - No Replies

The Beyonders Headquarters

The Beyonders, located near the South Pole in South Constringitur, is a guild that focuses entirely on space-travel and space adventures. Space enthusiasts, craving the knowledge of space exploration and want to connect Planet Booga with other life-form across the universe, came together and form this guild to achieved such dream. Led by Space Commander Jayden, The Beyonders is looking for strong and able recruits who want to not only experience traveling in the outer space, but explore different planets.

As Constringitur does not have any government and void of life, The Beyonders do not abide to any rules nor restrictions from other nations; they can operate at any time and, if they want to share data with the rest of the world, nations have to concede to their demands for supplies and goods to support the brave space explorers that risk their lives, going on this adventure. Unlike other guilds, which focus on solving issues or fighting monsters, they mostly focus on exploration, research and collecting (though, they mandate that explorers are sufficient in combat).

The Headquarters, is composed of two buildings, is made of pure Californite (gained from Empire State), which enables them to use highly advanced technology to fund their operation.
  • The first building focuses on training the both new recruits and veterans for their missions. It has a room known as a hibernation room where adventures goes and get into a pod to 8+ hours of sleep within a few minutes, something unique to the Beyonders that they refused to share with other nations. Another room is a cafeteria with the high quality of foods; all pick in mind to ensuring the health of the explorers.
  • The second building is where recruitment process occurs, the location of the main launch room, and the office of Commander Jayden. Outside of the second building, is the launch station where rockets, carrying explorers, are located. The rockets used Californite, enabling them to safety exited the planet and explore the outer space.
The Beyonders cannot promise you that you'll be safe of dangers. It pride itself of making sure you have the absolute best quality before leaving the planet and if the ship was compromised, they will send out a recuse mission to retrieved you back, alive or dead. Alien life is mysterious, unpredictable and things don't always go according to plan, but they ensure that if you have a calm mind, everything will resolved itself in the end.

  [ELIO'S NOTES]: On drawing better heads and keeping your head while doing it
Posted by: Elio - 02-08-2018, 08:02 AM - Forum: Art 101 - Replies (3)

So I've been watching some videos on drawing better and stuff, and while there's a lot to pack right there and most of it boils down to two things (draw from life/reference, and do it as often as possible i.e. PRACTICE), my attention was directed to drawing proportionate, slightly better-looking heads while trying to think of 3-dimensional forms in a 2-dimensional space. 

So let's examine our methods before this. All this time when you've learned how to draw basic anatomy (whether it's the How to Draw Manga books by Hikaru Hayashi or the Let's Draw Manga books by, uh, Christopher Hart), you've been taught this, right?:

[Image: GzF5YUP.png]

Brace yourself, because I will be extremely blunt: when drawing a head, drawing a simple circle doesn't cut it. Drawing an egg-shaped oval doesn't cut it either.

The thing about this method is it's simple. It represents the most basic of facial structure. We're conditioned to use symbols to represent what we see in our mind's eye, and many beginning artists are taught this method because it comes across to the student easily. But this is inaccurate, and will result in flat drawings. Now there's nothing wrong with flat drawings -- it's even pretty fun to play around with -- but if your goal is to improve, this is not going to cut it. 

[Image: DVgfzdXV4AAc_Mp.jpg]

Here's a comparison between the above method and the method I've studied (instruction by Andrew Loomis that's been broken down by Proko). Between the previous and the new one, would you agree that the second head seems to have better form than the first? That's because when constructing the head, you have to think not in circles or ovals, but in spheres. You gotta start training yourself to think of 3D objects in a 2D space. 

[Image: DVgh-CJVAAEWvby.jpg]

First, think of a sphere. Yes a sphere is going to look like a circle when you draw it on paper, but think about how the form is like. How do the shadows fall on it? What shadow does it cast? What's the shape of the shadow? If you can imagine what it's like in your mind, you can already imagine what spheres would look like. Alternatively you can just draw one and get a feel for it yourself. Find a ball (beach ball, ping pong ball, baseball, that strangely perfectly-spherical omanjuu you bought from AmiAmi, whatever) and try drawing it base on your observations. Take note how the shadows fall on the ball. Try drawing it a few times to get a feel of it. Now come back here because I need to explain the next part. 

Now you have this ball in your hands. It's a perfect sphere. Imagine now, that you've got a kitchen knife. With this kitchen knife, cut the sides of that ball so you have flat edges on the side. This will have its purpose which I'll explain on the next part. 

[Image: DVgjCmSVoAAy0wY.jpg]
Now that you've got your sphere with the flat sides, draw a plus sign on the flat side. Now imagine that you're seeing that flat side head on now. You'll notice the shape of that flat side is a perfect circle when you view it head on, and as you change angles, you'll see that it gradually becomes more and more oval. The plus sign on it will serve as a guideline for where you're going to put the ear and the jawline. 

Now come back to the spherical surface, and keeping the mind that spheres have a contoured surface, draw a curved vertical line from top to bottom. Again, keep in mind that if you drew a line on the sphere's surface, it will look curved, not straight. DON'T DRAW A STRAIGHT LINE!! Do the same with a horizontal line from one end to another. Remember that plus sign? The horizontal line on that plus sign will connect to the horizontal line on the contoured surface. This is because eyes and ears are generally on the same level when viewed at a neutral angle. 

[Image: DVgkdahV4AE6SW-.jpg]

Now, here's where it gets a bit tricky and honestly this part is entirely dependant on what kind of style you're going for, but let me just explain to you how to get the jawline. You notice the curved vertical line extends from the sphere. This is to help you establish where the chin is, so you can make a squishy face or a long face depending on where you want the chin to be, using the extended bit of vertical line to set a point for the chin: 

[Image: pOzhlXH.png]

The plus line also serves as a guide to placing the ear. I think what I've written above is pretty self-explanatory, so I won't explain so much. Eyes are at about the same level as the ears, more or less, but stylize it all you like depending on what you're going for! 

[Image: DVgluJ5VMAAQF-u.jpg]

And that's it! This is really just a guide on how to draw heads in a more 3D-ish sense, and it's super helpful to understand this in your journey to improve on your art! I hope these notes have been useful, and because I got this from Proko's excellent breakdown on drawing heads, I'll link the first video here:

  Music in dreams
Posted by: Z-Fighter - 02-05-2018, 09:51 AM - Forum: Boogaloo Plaza - Replies (2)

You know, at times I really hate my dreams.


Last night, I dreamt that I was on a random location, blue sky, sun shining in the air, and there was quite the kick-ass music playing along with it, to give that happy vibe, as if it's a good day, spending time with friends, being with your favorite characters and all that good stuff.

The kicker? I don't know where that melody's from, who wrote it and I can't find it in any of the existing songs that I have, almost as if I've composed it out of the blue!

Do you also have had dreams like that, where there's a song or melody playing in the background while you dream, and that melody just feels amazing to you, but you are unable to identify it by any means when you wake up?

  TYTANIA CHRONICLES -- SAGA ONE: THE GREAT TRIALS
Posted by: Elio - 02-04-2018, 04:42 AM - Forum: Inspired Stories - Replies (17)


RULES FOR THE ROLEPLAY:
1. For the sake of convenience and to save everyone from confusion, please play only up to two characters at a time! (since everyone can have up to 6 characters). Please mark which character you're playing if they're not in the same situation! E.G. if I'm playing Vegeta and Piccolo, in two different situations, this will be how it's formatted:



And if the two characters are in the same situation, this is how it needs to be formatted: 



2. Don't try changing the background story already in place. 

3. No godmodding/auto.

4. Please keep it safe for work

5. Observe all of Boogaloo's basic rules

6. Basic grammar is not compulsory, but appreciated so that everyone can understand!

7. Don't worry so much about post length -- one-liners are okay in most situations, especially if nothing of importance is happening. However try to match your reply's post length whenever you can! This is not a hard rule though so don't worry about this so much. Just have fun writing!

IMPORTANT NOTE: There is an upcoming comic version of Tytania Chronicles, but none of it will affect the roleplay in any way. With this in mind, don't come complaining to me if the roleplay storyline doesn't seem to tally with the fanfic storyline, and vice versa. 





TYTANIA CHRONICLES
SAGA ONE: THE GREAT TRIALS

In the beginning, the universe was divided into thirteen. 

Each of these thirteen universes had an overseer, an all-powerful being known -- to the people, anyway -- as Gods of Destruction, and paired with a personal angel who has the power to undo any destruction caused by their masters. The thirteen universes do not intersect with each other, nor do they know of the others' presence, except the Gods of Destruction and the angels. Governing these "gods" was an all-powerful being, the Master, that creates as well as destroys; it is not known who this omniscient being is, but it was said they are the one who created the Gods of Destruction, as well as many other godlike beings to govern each universe and ensure the course of their time runs smoothly.

However, one day, a terrible evil, more powerful than all the Gods of Destruction combined, began devouring each and every one of the thirteen universes. It devoured the Gods, each of them meeting their demise in the hands of the creature, until it came to one last universe, the universe that belonged to the god Beerus. Fighting together with Beerus was the universe's greatest hero, a man with a pure heart and an almost infinite power. Together, the two old friends faced the monstrous evil, in an attempt to keep their universe from being lost forever.

It was said the battle between Beerus, the hero and the great evil lasted for thousands of light years, until one day the evil was finally sealed away, keeping the last universe safe. However, the destruction caused by the battle was too great -- almost nothing was left of the universe, not even in its afterlife. The hero, heartbroken at this destruction, asked Beerus and his Master for one last request: that the universe was restored, and that the light in his heart be used to ensure everyone, including his enemies, were reborn as good people. With sadness in his eyes and with final goodbyes said, the god Beerus destroyed the hero until only his heart, pure and filled with light, remained, and with this heart, the Master restored the universe, bringing all creation back to life, and rebuilt everything anew. 

It is the world we live in today, and we owe much to the hero and the god Beerus. However, such a terrible evil would surely resurface again, and so we must always strive to repent & give our lives and souls to the good of the universe, for if we don't, the evil will surely return again. We are the last legacy of the Universe, and we must ensure that this universe is protected for all eternity. 

                                                                                                                                                                         -- from the writings of Vegeta the 1st, First King of Tytania, 13th Year of the Zeal



The light of the morning sun had barely poured into his room when he woke up, bright and early as usual. Letting out a hefty yawn and stretched his arms, the prince got up, eyes bleary and thoughts still half in dreamland. Groggily, he turned to open the windows at the side of his bed, letting the morning rays stream into the large bedroom.

Vegeta had an awful night of sleep the night before. He had such strange dreams last night, and the nights before as well. Floating in an endless void by himself, everything dark. He shouted for someone but no sound could be heard from his mouth. And then -- hard to breathe. Gasping desperately for air --- will he die here? All by himself? And when it was almost dark...there, before him, a light so bright, and then.... a hand reaches out to him...

He shook his head. "Same dream again..."
