Last month, we announced our first ever PHB Header Design Contest, in which we offered you, dear readers, the chance to come up with a new header image to adorn the top of our site! You can see the winning design up now, where it will stay for the rest of the month of September. That winner is…
Gentle Dolphin’s winning design places the current authors at an outdoor party—which gets crashed by the dastardly Dr. Hare, who nabs the banner and a pair of balloons! While Spotted Dragon chases him with a fierce glare, the rest look on in surprise. The facial expressions are especially well done, and I really like how the logos are in the balloons! See it on JordynGowens’ DeviantArt.
As promised, we’re also showcasing other entries that caught our eye. Check them out…
Moody Tuna’s design puts together paper cut-outs of almost every single author that has worked on the PHB, past and present—you can see about 40 of us in the picture, plus a cute question mark for whoever continues the legacy. The amount of effort this must’ve taken is admirable in itself, and the white paper on the blue backdrop makes for a neat contrast!
Purple Seagull’s design has the current authors sitting around looking at the clouds, which are full of fun features like a peeping Dr. Hare, balloons spelling “Poptropica,” and even a kite caught between them. The overall look is whimsical and cute, exuding feelings of happiness that can be seen on each character’s face, and I’m totally here for it!
We hope you enjoy seeing Gentle Dolphin’s header design throughout the month of September whenever you visit the Poptropica Help Blog!
If these drawings have you inspired, we’ve got another artsy endeavor you can participate in: our monthly Community Creations. This month’s theme is Music! 🎶
Stay tuned for more contests, especially seeing as the Creators have promised more to come in the near future. As always, pop on!
