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
Writing MUST have:
1) Both Candy and 1 or more MCL character
2) A detailed description of the surroundings/foliage
3) MUST be appropriate. Anything too mature will not be accepted.
Things we will not accept:

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

My Candy Love is always open for news from AmourSucre and we would love to see more original and traditional art in the folders. Fan art is always preferred over screen captures. As always remember the Rules of the Group http://fav.me/d52nmop No one has broken them yet so lets keep the good times rolling.
Activity of the week
I have been thinking of this for a little while now and noticed that a lot of groups have activities or competitions that they host. For the first Activity I would
PracticeBy now everybody already knows that becoming a good artist doesn't come from talent alone. On contrary; talent is a myth. Like the famous quote goes: "Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration". Meaning so much that even with a good idea and a bright mind, you still have to work your ass off in order to achieve something. While this makes mad skills available for basically everybody, I still hear many people complain about practice being a rather boring thing, or about them practicing a lot but still getting nowhere.
So I thought; Oh well... Why no article about practice?
Conscious vs unconscious practice
First of all lets divide practice in roughly two types. You have the conscious type of practice. This is the kind of practice in which you're sitting down and thinking to yourself "Hell yeah! I'm gonna draw some <subject> today to get better at this!". And then there's the unconscious type of practice. The type of practice that is often more playful an

Art and value of timeDear, deviantart fellow artists
Our lives go by so fast and the time for what we really want to do is limited. So, how to wisely value our time, how to make the best of every single day and keep on creating?
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
Sort what are the most important things you need to do as soon as possible and start with that. Make a list with what needs to be done and sort them by how necessary it is to do them, how much time it will aproximately take and how the result could impact your life. We have to make constant sacrifices in order to achieve our goals - instead of watching that useless youtube video, instead of checking e-mail and social media sites all the time, instead of whining that there is no time, but actually using what we have - everyone of us have 24h in a day, the difference between

AKUXBLOSSOM OFFICIALLY CANONLadies and gentlemen, friends and foes, etc:
We are gathered here today in honor of our precious babies, to celebrate a triumph previously unknown to our kind. Yes, the small but devout followers of the cult of Akublossism can now savor the sweet taste of satisfaction knowing their wildest dreams are at hand. I speak of absolution, my friends. I speak of the glory of the massive and indestructible ship we sail, and our conquest of the turbulent waters of the internet to spread our gospel to every fandom-shore.
I speak of endless possibilities, or more specifically, ONE possibility that has been acknowledged by Cartoon Network.
Some of you may be aware of IDW Publishing's new endeavors with Cartoon Network properties. Some of you may even be aware of one such project, Super Secret Crisis War, a work that includes both Aku and Blossom in its plot.
Long have we awaited this day, and at last it has come. Today may it be known that when the disbelieving world looks down upon us as fo
DeviantsGallery Halloween of Horrors!Hello my fellow deviants and welcome to our Halloween of Horrors! *insert evil cackle here*
As some of you know, Halloween is my favorite holiday and I want to celebrate it with YOU!
Our goal is to inspire everyone to create new art and more than that we want to have activities that every member can participate in. So… instead of having a contest, we are having 5 Halloween themed challenges. Without further ado, let get's started with our HALLOWEEN OF HORRORS!

"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.
