Top 5 Picks

The Archaeologists by BeanSkelly

BeanSkelly- The Archeologists

This piece is stunning! The perspective of the scene is really well made, making the room feel practically real. The lighting is breath-taking as well, especially when it comes to the detail on the glass cases. The texture is wonderful throughout the background, going together well with the warm tones used. Finally, even though the room itself seems to have the most thought and detail, the characters fit in perfectly. Amazing job! Find his DeviantArt here.

Balloon.Experiment Girl by POP-whitewolf

POP-whitewolf - Balloon.Experiment Girl

A bit of an older drawing, but nonetheless great! While this is a totally unique submission, it still perfectly fits our theme and shows off a recognizable minor character. Shrink Ray Island science fair anyone? I love seeing fun background characters in the spotlight! The movement, however little, is depicted well and gives the character some lively energy. Additionally, the coloring is super soft and I love that you can see the brush strokes in this style. Fantastic! Find her DeviantArt here.

Villainous Visages Doctor Hare by Kennerium

Kennerium - Villainous Visages Doctor Hare

Oooooh! While this drawing is relatively simple, it still demonstrates skill. The color choices work extremely well with one another and even the simple geometric shapes in the background help to add interest. The emotion in Dr. Hare is super cute and I love the shading and coloring! Even the line quality is wonderfully smooth, giving this a nice, graphic look. Dr. Hare should be proud!

Invader Zim AU – Ghost and Invader Hare by epiphxny

epiphxny - IZ AU Ghost and Invader Hare

Wow! Despite featuring Dr. Hare, a common choice for the “science” theme, this piece is absolutely unique! I may be a bit biased, as I am a big Invader Zim fan, but this crossover AU is certainly interesting. Dr. Hare could definitely pull off a Zim role, which really takes our theme to a new level! You can tell some thought went into these designs, especially considering the plot of this AU that the artist came up with. Not only is the coloring and lineart smooth and professional, but there is even a sequel to this piece, featuring Mordred! I’m digging the simple but cool background, as well as the characters’ poses. Find his DeviantArt here.

Science with Dr. Hare (Poptropica Descendants OC Short #11) by SuperGrape1

Dr. Hare: Greetings, I’m Dr. Hare, and today I will show you how to, do some science! *He smiles with excitement as he glances at the audience*.Harry Hare: Hey Daddy, can I help? *He asks Dr. Hare this sweetly as he gives him the puppy dog eyes*.
Dr. Hare: Of course, my son. *He smiles happily as he pats Harry on the head while he glances at him*.
Harry Hare:Yippee! *He jumps up and down with excitement as he glances at his father*.
Dr. Hare: Alright, now my son, we’re going to start by making the mind control serum first. *He smiles evilly as he glances at his son*.
Harry Hare: Yay! *He smiles with excitement as he glances at his father*.
Dr. Hare: Now, my son, be a dear, and get the formulas we need, they should be at my desk somewhere. *He smiles as he glances at his son*.
Harry Hare: Alright, daddy! *He searches the desk, and he finds the formulas* Here you go Daddy! *He hands him the formulas*.
Dr. Hare: Thank you, son, now watch as I put the chemicals into beakers! *He pours the chemicals into beakers and he mixes them together*.
Harry Hare: Yay, you can do it daddy! *He jumps up and down with excitement*.
Dr. Hare: It’s time to put the next formula into the destillator! *He puts the chemicals into a machine*.
Harry Hare: Yay, science! *He dances around in excitement*.
Dr. Hare: *He takes the new chemical out of the machine* Now to put the next formula into the bioreactor! *He puts the next ingredient into the bioreactor*.
Harry Hare: Yay, this is so exciting! *He hops up and down with excitement*.

Even though this piece also features Dr. Hare, it still has another unique twist! I love seeing literature submissions, as they’re generally less common. In the author’s “Poptropica Descendants OC shorts,” many Poptropica characters are re-imagined with children, and it’s cool to see how the parents’ personalities reflect in them! Additionally, the layout of text stands out among others, considering it’s dialogue based format. Way to be creative and different with this storytelling! Find her DeviantArt here.


Honorable Mentions

Creative submissions once again! We have a lot of Dr. Hare fans out there. 🙂


September: 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-fics, Worlds houses, 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 September’s theme? September’s theme is…

MUSIC!

This theme may not directly relate to September, but I for one certainly use my earbuds to listen to music more often when school starts. Anybody with me? Anyway, no matter what genre of music you like, everyone has been caught loudly singing (off-key) in the shower at once point or another. So it’s a theme we can all find something we like in! Besides the obvious Poptropica elements of course.

So what are your options? Well, like always, they’re pretty limitless! Write your own Poptropica song or rap, recreate your favorite album cover with Poptropica characters, make costumes for your favorite artists, remix some of Poptropica’s classic background musicetc. These are just a few of the many things you could create. And hey, maybe I’ll discover a new bop to add to my phone thanks to your submissions?

  • Submitting: Comment below with a link to whatever you’ve created OR share it with me (SydVC aka Spotted Dragon) on DeviantArtTwitter, or Discord.

  • 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!
