Why hello there Poptropicans! Curious about the title? Allow me to explain a bit. No, this isn’t just another update post even though I do make those a lot. This post has a bit more… creativity. Do I have your attention? Good!
This is a new little series I like to call “Community Creations.” In this series I will be writing up a post at the end of every month that will feature YOUR creations! That’s right, your artwork, your creepy fan-fiction, your Poptropica costumes, Realms, etc. Basically anything relating to Poptropica that you make!
You might be thinking… “SD, is this just a lame excuse to post more often due to how inactive you are?” My reply to that would be “Whaaaaaaaat? Of cooooourrse not…” Don’t go looking into my ulterior motives! The point is that I think this series is a cool, interactive idea that supports imagination. Who doesn’t love art?
So here’s the deal: each month will have a different theme, whether it be a popular TV show, holiday, etc. Specifically, I will post around the last day of every month recapping the art/stories/others that were sent in. Don’t worry because I will be taking suggestions for these themes! In the monthly post, I will feature 5 creations that stood out to me in relation to the chosen topic. They do still have to relate to Poptropica though, as that’s the point.
Maybe this is actually starting to sound interesting. So how do you enter? That’s the easy part!
- Upload your creation wherever and just send me the link. Post it below in the comments or send it directly to me on my Twitter, DeviantArt, or Discord (note that I might not see it right away on the latter).
- I will always let you know once I’ve seen it if you specifically send something to me or tag me in something. That being said, I will also keep an eye out on the We-Love-Poptropica DeviantArt community for honorable mentions.
- Bonus points if you have a short written backstory/meaning to go along with your art, poetry, songs, stories, realms, costumes, I could go on. I mean, we don’t keep track of any points, but deeper meanings always catch my attention (though silliness is not frowned upon).
Now that we have all the rules and technicalities out of the way, let’s get to the series! If you have any questions or theme suggestions, please post them below. Don’t worry if you forget the rules, as I will recap them in each month’s post.
The next month’s theme is… *drumroll* SHIPPING! What better way to kick off the series? You shouldn’t have expected anything less from me since it’s going to be Valentine’s Day soon.
Start drawing, typing, writing, or whatever you’re going to do as soon as you want! I will take any and all submissions before the end of February, although the sooner the better, as I will have a better chance to think over your submission. Already made something cool relating to the theme? Sure, send that in too!
You can submit an endless amount of entries too, there are no limitations to your creativity! However, as this theme is shipping, please be respectful. I give you guys full permission to draw/write about me/my poptropican since I don’t mind being shipped with whoever. However, others might see shipping differently so if you include any real people in your creation(s), get their permission first! Poptropica NPCs and your own OCs are fine of course.
Anyway, see you at the end of the month and every month after that! I hope lots of you join because, while talent might have an impact on my decision, it’s really the content that matters. Make your creation catch my eye! 😉
