Top 5 Picks
Marooned by happyclonetrooper
Haha, get it? The Poptropican’s name is Maroon Ring and she’s lost (marooned)… Anyone? No? Well I thought the title was clever and to top it off, her outfit was an old costume contest entry! The drawing was inspired by another artist’s Drawcember prompt set, specifically a snow/ice setup. The lighting is wonderful and everything gives off a strong winter vibe. Super soft and cool! Find her DeviantArt here.
Santa Claus by Tough Sky
This festive costume is dazzling! It’s a perfect image of good ol’ St. Nick and the lights entangling him simply add to his holiday spirit. And I’m curious about that scar… Sledding accident perhaps? Whatever the cause may be, this outfit for sure represents this snowy season. Super cool! Frequently find Tough Sky in the comment section.
Blue Ice by Sporty Boa
Introducing… Blue Ice! A wicked new winter villain! Born on Astro-Knight’s bone-chilling Ice Planet, her backstory is one of cold hearts and harsh motives. Read more about her and other villains here! Not only is this a stylish design, but the attention to origin story definitely gives this drawing some bonus points. Cool concept! (Am I allowed to use the same pun twice? Whoops!) Find SB’s blog here.
Happy Holidays by CrazyPaintBursh
Super cute! I love the attention to each villain’s winter outfit. Everyone shows a unique emotion and the colors are bright and cheerful. Each outfit fits the villain’s personality perfectly and are all great for the cold season. Gives me positive, family-fun feelings. Amazing holiday card! Find her DeviantArt here.
The Gift of the Poptropican by SuperGrape1
Once upon a time, in a world known as Poptropica, it was the night before Christmas, and all of the Poptropicans in Poptropica were celebrating with holiday cheer. However, meanwhile on Home Island, a Poptropican named Super Grape is seen sitting on a couch inside her house, and she seems to be stressing out about something, and all throughout the house, not a creature is stirring not even a mouse. Suddenly, a fireplace is seen nearby the couch that Super Grape is sitting on, and all of the stockings are hung by the chimney with care. Anyway, the reason that Super Grape was stressing out was that it was Christmas Eve, and the next day it would be Christmas morning, and she had forgotten to get a Christmas present for her boyfriend Incredible Wing. What am I going to do, I have to buy Incredible Wing a Christmas gift at the last minute and all of the stores are going to be closed for Christmas, Super Grape thought as she starts to panic… READ MORE
A classic Christmas tale! A well known holiday plot line is one in which two people give up things they deeply care about in order to buy a loved one a present. Spoiler though! Both gifts closely relate to each object the person gave up and so are both ultimately pointless. Super Grape’s story has lots of similarities to this plot, so it may seem nostalgic to many readers. Buying gifts is a struggle almost everyone can relate to and it’s portrayed well throughout this narrative. Find her DeviantArt here.
Wonderful entries as always everyone! 2017 has been an… eventful year to say the least, but I always have a blast seeing your creations! I hope you had a great holiday season and I hope you have an even greater 2018! 😀
