Helper ApplicationsGreetings My Candy Love Fans!
I am here today because I would love to have a couple of helpers with this group. So, if you think you can devote some spare time to sifting through art read on. If the following fits you then just say so in a comment and I will choose 2 people to help out as mods of the group.
-Know English like it is your primary language.
-Have time to spare.
--For sorting images
--For removing images
-Love the game
-Want to help thr group rather than just watch it.
-Would like to occasionally write journals about what's going on with the game ^_^
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.

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 cool contest! Everyone loves to see the pretty flowers and trees blooming, even

right? Here's the requirements!
What to do:
Draw a picture or write a story featuring your Candy and any of the MCL characters
A drawing MUST have:
1) Both Candy and 1 or more MCL character
2) Flowers, trees, baby animals, anything spring related
3) A nice background

1) Both Candy and 1 or more MCL character
2) A detailed description of the surroundings/foliage

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
Thank you for your patients,

Want more commissions?This journal is for artists who want to get more commissions, or want to open commissions and never had so they don't know how best to present their art, or even for those artists who took commissions before but would appreciate some more tips
There are a few pretty important things to consider before publicly announcing you're opening commissions:
1. payment method. The deviantart commission widget takes 20% of your profit, but then again more deviants have points so you're likely to get 20% more customers like that. But don't forget there are people who have paypal and don't feel like dealing with points so if you decide to open commissions through deviantart, don't let that be the ONLY payment method.
Paypal is the most common payment method used online and i strongly recommend it. Make a paypal account, connect it to a card and you're ready. But don't forget paypal has a limit of $3000 per year withdrawal. So if you're serious about drawing art for a living and you

Inspiration: youtube artists (part 1)Dear, deviantart fellow artists
Hi - so I'm starting new series of journals with useful resources - mainly because I'm running out of topics to write about and I just like some diversity. (I'll continue to post general art/motivational journals too every now and then)
Here are some of my favorite youtube artists, that inspire me and I hope that these resources might be helpful for you too.
'Level up!' is an idea of two Polish artists - Wojtek Fus ( WojciechFus ) and Darek Zabrocki ( daRoz ), who want to teach and learn from each other. Level Up has expanded a host team by amazing Jonas De Ro (JonasDeRo ) There are weekly, 2 to 3-hours long livestreams with critiques, overpaintings and Q&A's. It's so wonderful to watch them paint and talks about important tips on art and life as an artists. Also check out their
The Illuminated World ContestStock & Resources
Imagine a world where the soft glow of the magnolia blossoms illuminates the sidewalk. The reaching branches of the tree cast their light over the street, reflected in the gathering puddles of a spring rain. A garden nearby is a riot of colors against the deep shadows of the night. The harsh artificial street lights that we know today are gone. What would your world look like? Is it a world where the need for fossil fuel has been eliminated, or have the scientists bio-engineered the earth into a beautiful apocalypse?
The idea of bio-luminescent plant illumination is a real project in progress by three scientists in San Francisco, California. These scientists are engineering marine bio-luminous bacterial DNA into plants to make them glow. You can read more about their project here: Glowing Plants: Street Lig
DYNAMIC AND ACTIVE POSING FOR STOCKStock & Resources
Broadly defined, Action Stock is any photo-reference in which the subject is doing SOMETHING. That 'something' does not need to be extreme or particularly kinetic, it just has to show the effects of various forces on the bodies (or other objects) in the image. Perusing an artifact, sitting on someone's knee, even enjoying the aroma of a cup of coffee are great examples of actions that, when explored as stock images, can be of great value to artists.
Of course, there is nothing wrong with extreme, kinetic, over-the-top actions, either...
~ ~ ~
It's worth stating the obvious: if you are interested in exploring the more "kinetic" end of the action spectrum, know your limits. Don't work beyond your skill level and observe all necessary safety precautions; no shot is worth getting hurt over.
BODIES IN MOTION
In 2007, when I first started paying regular attention to the DD page on this site, I quickly realized that the general photography galleries were being watched over by three ladies with an insane amount of talent in their medium but widely disparate styles and viewpoints - and they were all awesome. Staged, Sandra Keplinger, was this passionate German high-style lady with an eye for cinematographic compositions and journalistic attacks; hellfirediva, Tina The Rabbit Whisperer, was the Macro Queen who loved the colourful and the spunky; and then there was equivoque, Elinor Scott-Sutter, who seemed to be forever on the hunt for the most artistic executions possible. Over the years since then I had the chance to get to know each of them personally, and they all influenced my photography more than I'd ever like to admit. Sandra became an idol to me, and to date she's still one of my favourite photographers in the real world; Tina became a good personal friend, then
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.
