This just in! (possible spoiler) UPDATEDOne of the main boys will be leaving in episode 27! But who will it be? and why? These two questions have yet to be answered as of yet and we may very well have to wait in suspense to see who until the episode comes out. From my point of view the main boys are Castiel and Nathaniel, as they are the only two boys that have been in every episode. One might argue that Kentin or Lysander could be a main boy as well for being so well loved since pretty much the beginning of the game. Now we all know that Ken left the school for a while and came back changed and calling himself Kentin. There are, however, no reports at this time that the main boy that will be leaving us will be coming back.
Personally I could see a few things happening. One, Nathaniel being the super study guy could graduate early and head off to college where he wouldn't really be able to come back or have time to come back. Two, Castiel drops out of school and refuses to come around even if we go looking for him. Three, Ca
About MCL Submissions ... an FYIUpdate: We will also be removing all screen caps or images that are just from the game, as it's not all that fair to ChiNoMiko's to have her art spread around by anyone but herself. Compilations of images will still be allowed as long as you are making something NEW in the image.
As much as I love looking at and reading artworks by you all. I'm going to say this. My Candy Love is the english version of the wonderful game by ChiNoMiko. Therefore, all further submissions to this group will be in english. If a submission is not written in english in both title and description then the submission will no be accepted to this group. I will also be sifting through old submissions and removing all submissions from the folders that are not in english.
The following are the other language groups (per comment request):

September AnnouncementsIt's September 24th and I bring to you great news!
This month released Episode 19 on the 23, yesterday ... I can't wait to finish episode 18 so I can try out episode 19. How bout you guys?
They have unfortunatly gone into disarray again. I've been busy with life stuff and so I am looking for someone to help me sort out the boys folder to their individual image folders and make sure that the folders are only getting images that fit with the category information listed on the side of the gallery page.
I, MeganEliMoon am still offering a 50% off of any commission from my commissions list to any member of this group. There are no others that I am aware of at this time.
yes I said applications. This is for if you wish to become a helper in this group. Please fill in the information and post it here as a comment. Thanks
Why you want to help:
Experience: (i.e. have y
August AnnouncmentsSo I've decided to try to do monthly updates for everyone, of course this means I'll need information or mini article from you guys to post every month. If you have anything that you would like posted for the next month i.e. having a special on MCL art commissions or notice anything of importance be sure to NOTE me about it.
This month as many of you may have seen Episode 18 was put up on August 8th. I have yet to play this episode as I'm replaying some other in an attempt to get more photos.
The Clothing gallery has been updated as far as episode 9, plus the Halloween specials so far. I would very much like to encourage you to create your own clothing styles that you would love to see in the game. I'm not saying I can get them in for you but we'd all love to see more designs I'm sure.
I, MeganEliMoon am offering a 50% off of any commission from my commissions list to any member of this group. There are no
All Cleaned Up!Announcement
So I come back over to this page after two weeks away to find tons of images some how auto-approved to the featured folder and a huge mass of requests for images to be added as well as memberships. And I've just noticed that I am now the sole founder for the group. Apologies to all who requested an invite but didn't get accepted due to the request expiring before I returned. It took my a while to get everything where it belongs again and I have turned off the random auto-approved imagery.
I would also like to take this time to remind everyone that explicit materials are not allowed in the group. If your image has a boy with his shirt of that is fine as long as it is not overly sexual in nature. I am also adding a gender-bend category since so many member seem to enjoy changing the gender of characters or dressing them in drag. This new gender-bend category will be open to both candies as well as npc to be entered if they are
LeavingHey guys, Celeste here. I'm sorry to say that I'll be leaving the group. My family and I are moving, my sister to Pennsylvania and my mother and I to Williamsburg. It's going to take a lot of work from all three of us, plus some help from other family members. it's been fun talking with you all and seeing all your art. I hope everything stays good and I trust Eli. I'm sorry to be so abrupt about this, but I really did have fun while it lasted. Love you guys.
Spring ContestHey guys! Celeste here with an important, as well as fun, announcement!
As you all know, Spring has finally arrived, and we're going to welcome it with

A drawing MUST have:
1) Both Candy and 1 or more MCL character

3) A nice background

Rules and Regulations... againTo our dear members,
I, that's :iconCelestial-Winters:, would like to remind you all of some of our strict rules.
Now, I'm not doing this to be a stick-in-the-mud, I'm just doing this for the mental
health of our members. We don't want them having to pay the bill for a Shrink!
The rule that people seem to keep forgetting is that we ask for relatively "non-mature"
artwork to be entered, as it were. That is to say, we won't, and I mean WON'T
accept things that are sexually themed, yaoi/yuri related(W accept yaoi/yuri, just not sexual themed), or ideologically sensitive (No particularly
horrible curse words, no racism, etc.). We do however accept artwork pairing your characters
with the MCL boys, so so as it's innocent. We also ask that you are kind to others members, there
fore meaning you will not make fun of their characters.
I apologize if we've turned away your artwork, but that would mean that it breaks a rule and can not

That's how you get pageviewsAnd here you have the number one question that people ask me:
"How the hell did you get so many people to view your art? You're not even that good!"
I can't do anything other than honestly admitting that I'm not that good at art. I'm not some awesomely skilled concept artist, at least. I've seen many people do a better job while receiving a lot less of attention.
Why a medium like DeviantArt works for me? Probably because I've been around on the internet for so long, and I've spend so much time working for internet-marketing company's, that things like advertising and web usability have become a second nature to me. A lot of the things that I've come to regard as common sense in internet communication, are things that are nowadays proven successful by research.
It's important to know that websites like DeviantArt are listed in the category social media. That probably didn't occur to most people, since DeviantArt seems to be so heavily focused towards art (and tradi

PE: How to Make Pixel CloudsHow to Make Pixel Clouds
In this tutorial, I will be showing you how to make pixel clouds. I have two different types of clouds I use depending on the piece; semi-realistic, and cartoon style. I will be showing you both today!
Let us start!
The semi realistic style can be done two ways, depending on if you are limiting colors or not.
First, I'm going to show you the way for if you do not care how many colors you use.
First you will pull out your pencil brush, as you would normally do when making pixel art, and set the color to white. After that, set the opacity to around 10%-20%.
Randomly brush side to side with the pencil, and then overlap some lines randomly as well.
Keep doing that until the cloud if about as big as you need it; it should look something like this.c:

Kiriban at 1.000.000 - CaughtIt's as simple as it gets;
Catch my 1.000.000th pageview and get a free head-shot sketch from your character (or any character that you like).
(Screenshot needs to be fullscreen and send to me by private message)
The kiriban is caught.
Anyone bother to explain me how it is possible that 2 people caught the exact same thing on screenshot???
After hearing from multiple people having experience with more than 1 guy catching their kiriban, I can only come to the conclusion that it's reasonable.
DA's counter is probably flawed, in the sense that it only counts an IP once. Which would lead people that spend hours refreshing my page, being able to keep track of the pageviews without actually influencing themselves. It's still kind of weird to think that kind of thing actually happens and people are
Olympia: Manet's Biggest ScandalÉdouard Manet (1832-1883), a French painter who is sometimes considered one of the founders of the style of impressionism, caused quite a few scandals throughout his career.
Many of these scandals came into being because of the subject matter which he chose to portray in his paintings. Additionally, there were many critics who found fault in his painting style. Surprisingly, despite the sometimes violent reactions to his works, what Manet was really seeking throughout his painting career was official recognition as a great artist of his time.
At a young age, Manet found in his father an extreme opposition to his desired career as an artist. His father was a magistrate who thought that Manet should choose a “recognized” profession. Attempting to appease his father, Manet tried and fai

Episode 9 Online!Went online
"By the Seashore
Summer Vacation at the beach! You can finally relax, but when you're alone, even the sun and the ocean can become boring...Who will you meet by the seashore?
There are three episodes in one! If you meet a boy the first time, you will meet one of the other two boys during a replay, always at random. For example, you can meet Nathaniel, then Lysander and finally Castiel. After you have played the episode with all three boys, you will be able to choose which boy you want to meet!
6 illustrations available during this episode!! Do not miss your date, remember you have to choose the correct answers with the boy at the time of the date!"
If you run into your Auntie in this episode she will give you a translucent blue swan/duck floatie ring that sits around your waist. http://b1.img.v4.skyrock.net/b1a/amoursucre-974/pics/3036846359_1_5_K2fFSyuJ.jpg
There is also a hidden mustache somewhere in this episode .... which I think looks kind of villainy.

Her CatalystAs she walks through the maelstrom, the words trace upon the tips of her fingers and press into the stone. Every brick, every crack in the concrete, every crossed and angular stroke in reds and blacks and oranges. The drips of the gasoline pool around the base of her boots, slosh as she steps over the burst pipes and the rubble.
So much rubble. So little outcry. The silence of the city grates on her eardrums and the mantras she'd been forced to memorize. The Seers demanded they observe thirteen years of recitation before they attempt to weave their first World together.
But who other than the Seers can claim the incantations that knot the skeins they twist and pull on like reins hold fast? When have any of the Sisters recorded the visions they traced upon space-time and recited them, left them open for critique and discussion and debate?
Which is why she walks through the chalky soot of the smashed city around her. This all
