LAST UPDATE OF THIS POST: 13/08/15
(I don't promise or guarantee it would be made, but you can try ;))
: Please fill out the form below. You don't have to write in every fields though, just the ones you can think of ;)
Code: What to write on the jar, 4 letters maximum. I only accept A-Z and numbers. Also, this code can't be the same as existing ones.
Codename: 15 letters maximum, only A-Z and numbers. (This is just something I put in the spoiler and use to name my own adoptables XD)
Concept: What type of sweets do you want? What's the preferred clothing for the 3rd stage? You name it, be descriptive as possible!
Colour Palette: Please provide me a picture reference. Linking to outside palette, such as this
, is also fine.
(Uppercase and lowercase letters will appear the same on the jar. Also the number zero and the letter o. 1 and I, however, appear differently.)
Example: for the 1301 jar
Concept: A candy cane with cold tones, make it looks like frozen stuffs.
Colour Palette: here
You can find all past-suggested Jars with this tag: requested jar
: Suggestions are not open...yet ;)
Candy Mixing Details
All mixes (except M000, M001, M012, M018, M029, and M038) will be passworded. To get the password from me, you must post the two "ingredients" for the mix in non-jar stage in this thread. They don't have to be in the full-grown form though, the second stage (after the jar stage) is acceptable too. The gender doesn't matter.
The traditional/limited Jars can be used for mixing too, but please note that the mixing time will be longer for traditional Jars. Also, the mixed Jar can be re-mixed with other Jars.
Fan Jars can also be used for mixing, but there will be some limitations. Mixing two fan characters may be hard, or even impossible.
There will be only 1 mix for any 2 Jars. If you want to mix A with B, you can post A first or B first, the result will be the same.
The Jar code will be generated according to the palette used (which you can't choose, bwahaha >:3)
You can request only 1 new mix a time. That means you have to wait until I finished mixing your old request first in order to request a new one. This is to give other people an opportunity to get new mixes as well. There's no limit in requesting the passwords for old mixes because it's easier for me to copy/paste those details in one go XDDD
And because now Candy Jars are available on 2 sites, you can post your mixing pair on either site and get your mix on both, as I use same passwords on both sites!
You can see all old/processing mixes details and unmixable Jars here
. (Only me can edit the doc. If you spot some mistakes or have a nice suggestion to the doc, feel free to tell me.)
You can also find all made mixes using this tag: mixed jar
For people who don't know how to post adoptable pics here, just go to your "Adoptions --> Adopted" drop-down menu, look for the one you want, click "More Info" under that adoptabe, and copy the image part of the HTML code. Like this:
Don't copy the entire code because admins will go to get you for posting clickable links outside the "Click Me" section. Also, don't use BBCode. Maxi forums just hate BBcodes XD
Those Questions You Might Want to Ask
Q: Where did you get the idea of those candy thing from? Do you play too many stages of Candy Crush Saga?
- Although I have played Candy Crush for more than a year and about 600 passed levels, no, I didn't get the idea from that game.
The idea came from That Old Picture I Drew Since 2011
and I thought making an adoptable from it would be cool.
Q: What about the Lepos?
- Lepo is one of the species you can get on Monster Nursery game available on iOS and Android devices. Each monster in that game has many color variations. I like the design, so I chose to draw this species ;)
Q: B...but you said there are many species on that game, then why did you choose to draw the Lepos?
- First of all, it's cute XD
Second is that the design is simple enough to allow modifications, such as adding costumes or patterns. The pose of this species also has some similarities, but not too similar, to humanoid characters.
Q: Where do you get the color palettes?
- Well, from many places, including The Colour Schemes Group in dA
, Design Seeds
, Adobe color
, and Tumblr.
Q: Can I request you to make one with specific color/theme?
- I don't take requests, for now. I do, however, take "suggestions". Suggest what you like and hope I might make it real some day *evil laugh*
The suggested adoptables will be for everyone to adopt. (It can't be passworded/private/only-for-you things.)
(See the suggestion form above.)
Q: Can I breed Jar A with Jar B?
- I'd like to call it "mixing" because candies shouldn't be something breedable. It would be too scary if so XD
(See details above)
Q: I think these pair of Lepos could produce a nice mix, can I breed them?
- Unfortunately, no. You can suggest a color mix, but it'll be another separated kind of Lepo anyway. (You can adopt the color mix without having "parent" Lepos.)
Q: How many stages do your species have?
- Lepos have 2 stages, Candy Jars have 3.
Q: What about these random evolving levels? Why don't you set it the same for every adoptables?
I'm just a kind of person who got bored easily
I got the idea when I did the Random Xi
years ago to keep everything random, and it was fun!
For 3-stage adopts, I use Random.org
to create 2 random numbers from 5 to 75, both inclusive. The first number I got will be the level for second stage, and the sum of 2 will be the level for the third stage. For example, if I got 30 and 61, it means you'll reach the second stage at level 30, and you'll reach the third stage at level 91 (30+61).
2-stage adopts will get a ramdom number from 10 to 99. (Lepo based on existing adoptables will most likely get the same evolving level as the first evolving level of referenced adoptable.)
There are some exceptions to this, though, especially when the number has some meaning. For example, the "13" Jar has evolving levels at 13 and 113, to emphasize the unluckiness.
Q: What is that font you use on the jars and in the spoilers? Where can I download it?
- It's called "Carbon Block". It was installed in my computer since I got it, so I don't know if you can download that :|
Q: And what about that pixelated font for Lepos?
- It's "FixedSys" and I believe it's Microsoft default font :|
Q: Do you have a deviantArt account?
- Yes, I do. It's here
Q: Your last update date is 1 day ahead of the date in where I live. Do you live in the future?
- Nope. I just happen to stay in Japan (as a foreign student, that is XD), and the time zone here is faster than many other places XD
Q: *Asks something else an umpteenth time*
- Okay, I may put other questions and answers later :|
