Top 5 Picks
Gem Costumes by LilPoptrystalTemp
Super creative! A continuation of our other Steven Universe costumes, these outfits totally match their cartoon counterparts. Accurately portraying someone in Poptropica can be a difficult task, but these designs get pretty darn close to their characters. From left to right, we have Peridot, Lapis Lazuli, Jasper, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Sapphire, Aquamarine, Topaz, Sardonyx, Opal, and Sugilite. And each account comes with a username. Plus, I love the attention to detail in each Poptropican name. They perfectly suit the personality of each character while staying true to classic Poptropica names! Great work, I can tell this took effort! Find her DeviantArt here.
Spy Wars by Cuddly Knuckle
Given the somewhat recent movie release, a Star Wars crossover is very appropriate! The mashup works super well with Spy Island too. I think we could find lots of similarities between B.A.D. and the Dark Side, right? I wonder if B.A.D. has cookies… Anyway, this is a cool action pose and there’s definitely strong attention towards lighting. Nice! Find his DeviantArt here.
Twilight Sparkle by HfEvra
Great editing! Any of our viewers My Little Pony fans? Even if you’re not, I think we can all agree this is an accurate representation of Twilight Sparkle in Poptropica. Even more so, the designs are all in a Poptropica Worlds art style!
Hooves Fingers and all! They totally look like actual, in-game costumes. I love that a suitable background was included, as well as a variety of outfits! Find her DeviantArt here.
Gingerbright by Purple Seagull
Not as much detail, but still super cool! For you Cookie Run fans out there, have you ever wondered what GingerBright would look like in Poptropica? Well, wonder no more! This cute little character would fit in perfectly with some of Poptropica’s more lighthearted adventures, and definitely looks like both GingerBright and a Poptropican, cookie crumbs and all! There’s even a bit of shading to help her pop. She’s so cute I could almost eat her up! Find the artist often in the comment section.
Train to Zomberry Island by ANNE14TCO
Now here’s a change in mood! On the more intense end of the spectrum is Train to Busan, a Korean zombie film. This pick is an interesting contrast to the world of Poptropica, which just goes to show you how diverse our community is. Still, the comparison to Zomberry Island is perfect of course. The lighting and emotion in this piece is fantastic! It puts me on the edge of my seat for a thriller. Plus, the movie poster format is quite creative, fitting both sides of the crossover (with a little reference to Back Lot Island). Amazing work! Find her DeviantArt here.
February: How do I Participate?
Community Creations is a cool series for anyone in the Poptropica community to join in on. To sum up what it’s about, it’s basically a chance to show off your artwork, creepy fan-fic, realms, costumes, and anything else that pops into your mind.
If we really like the piece you submit, we will feature it here on the PHB! As long as it relates to that month’s theme. So what is February’s theme? February’s theme is…
Valentine’s Day is coming up and that means it’s been one full year of Community Creations! Last year we kicked things off with “shipping” and the rest is history. Anyway, February is a time of love and friendship, so why not express that through our creations? While colorful can literally mean using a bunch of vibrant colors, it can also just refer to a creative, positive mood.
So with that in mind, there is a bunch you could make! Use bright, bold colors in some cheesy Poptropica Valentine’s Day cards. Dress up your Poptropican in a crazy, vibrant costume. Draw your Poptropican and a bunch of your friends hanging out and just having fun. Write a positive, poppy love story. The list goes on!
- Submitting: Comment below with a link to whatever you’ve created OR share it with me (SydVC aka Spotted Dragon) on DeviantArt, Twitter, or Discord.
- Results: I will feature 5 of the submissions as well as 3 honorable mentions.
- Limitations: Nothing NSFW, and make sure you relate to the theme.
- Due Date: I will take any entries before the end of this month. Submit as many things as you’d like!
I will always be sure to let you know I have seen your creation. Bonus points if you make a compelling description for your piece! While quality counts, I’m mainly looking for something to simply catch my eye, so don’t be afraid to join in!
So what are you waiting for? Go make something awesome!
