Hey there, Poptropicans!
It’s Happy Lobster, and we’ve got yet another Poptropica Portfolio, and this time the artist showcased is Ashley Lange!
If you haven’t already, make sure to check out the Poptropica Portfolios we’ve previously published, featuring artists Nate Greenwall, Chris Goodwin, Abraham Evensen Tena, Jordan Leary, Lance Fry, and Nasan Hardcastle.
Anyway, according to Lange’s Squarespace page, Ashley’s a game artist and animator, and has so far worked for Fantasy Flight Games, Blizzard Entertainment, and Pearson Education (which included Poptropica, although Pearson no longer owns Pop). Using several design programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash and Maya, she creates her amazing works. Check out her stunning Poptropica ones below:
As you can see, Lange has done quite a bit for Poptropica – from sketches to animations, from plans to entire scenes. But as for that final pic, its file name is ‘Moletown’, and it almost certainly comes from Crisis Caverns. Is the place actually called Mole Town (or Moletown), or does the pic just have that name because it’s a town moles live in? Whether this is the case or not, it’s definitely something to think about.
There’s also a video which includes some of Ashley’s animations, which include some Poptropica ones. These comprise of the boss battle in Mocktropica, Virus Hunter virus battles, Monster Carnival monsters, Twisted Thicket Trolls (same animation as in the fourth pic above), Wimpy Boardwalk characters, Survival Ep. 2 beavers, and a sketch of a scene in Crisis Caverns, with some very intriguing phrases stated below it: ‘For thousands of years we have lived peacefully under the earth. Our kingdom is filled with riches that have made their way from your world to ours.‘ Very intriguing indeed…
Anyway, hope you enjoyed this insight into another Poptropica artist’s remarkable portfolio! See you soon, and stay popping!
