What’s up, PHB readers? Welcome to another Poptropica Portfolio, brought to you by Fierce Flyer! (And if you like this one, do check out other portfolios we’ve featured!)
This post’s spotlight shines on Jonathan Trimble, a creative designer from Arizona, USA, who has done work for both the original Poptropica and Poptropica Worlds. Below are some designs from his Behance account (click to enlarge images!).
He shares images of Poptropica on computer and mobile screens; plus, there’s a cool style guide that shows how scenes and art, characters and avatar sets work:
Over on Poptropica Original, he’s done a lot of work with advertising, with scenes from ad buildings for The Lego Batman Movie, ParaNorman, and Alice Through the Looking Glass. Trimble’s portfolio showcases the format of the final product for all three of the ads, as well as the format of the minigames for Lego Batman and ParaNorman.
Next up is one of the most iconic scenes in Escape from Pelican Rock Island (or all of Poptropica, for that matter): sneaking past the prison guards as you try to escape to freedom. Check out the mechanics of your character’s movements:
That’s it for the Poptropica Original side of things, but we haven’t even begun to crack the surface of Poptropica Worlds! Let’s kick things off with its most recent island, Greek Sea Odyssey. Jonathan has created some incredible backgrounds here:
Lastly, we have a ton of Poptropica Worlds avatar designs that you may have seen in the store, as well as some that haven’t made it to the game, perhaps because they’re discarded designs or will be released later. Check them out:
Hope you enjoyed this Poptropica Portfolio from Jonathan Trimble! If you’d like to see more of his work, check out his page on Behance. I’ll see you guys next time!
