Top 5 Picks
Super Paper Max by Meganf123456
What a cool design! This Poptropica/Paper Mario crossover looks like a super fun scenario, perfect for fans of both games. The bright colors used reflects the upbeat, playful tone of both worlds, along with their sense of adventure. It’s great to see familiar characters in combination with cool OCs in this design. Fantastic work! Find her DeviantArt here.
A Late Night Game by themightywolftiger
Fun! I love the friendship between OCs shown in this piece. The scene is perfect for our theme and seems apropos for the world of Poptropica! The artist’s style, particularly in regards to their colored lineart, is distinct and interesting too. Though basic composition, the symmetry in the setting frames the drawing pretty well. I can tell that positioning was well thought out and worked on. Keep it up! Find their DeviantArt here.
My Poptropican Plays Poptropica by Red Tomato
Cute! I don’t know why, but the idea of our Poptropicans actually playing Poptropica on their own computers cracks me up. Would their characters look like us??? *cough* Anyway, I love the blue color scheme and the emotion put into Red Tomato’s Poptropican. Though the background uses a pretty simple pattern, the blue tones tie everything together and really scream Poptropica! Red Tomato seems ready for action. Find the artist in the comment section!
Fran Bow and Sally Face by xXLilAngel2004Xx
Ooooh, spooky! Halloween might not be around the corner just yet, but who doesn’t love some good horror games? These Poptropica/horror crossovers are certainly unique. Just thinking about Poptropica as a horror game… all I can picture is that darn Jersey Devil! But anyway, Copy Cat’s aesthetic is quite fitting, and the inclusion of an OC is always fun. The background photos are extra creepy and both characters are still super cute in the scenes. Wonderful submission! Find her DeviantArt here.
Silvermouse by Spotted Thunder
I love this outfit! Spotted Thunder turned their Transformice character into a Poptropican with this submission. With Transformice being an online game, just like Poptropica, I thought the choice was very appropriate. Not only that, but a story was written to go along with the costume. ST definitely went the extra step here, which is certainly worth a feature! Very unique and very nice. Find them in the comments!
Though we don’t have a handful of honorable mentions this month, I definitely want to give a shout out to our very own Gentle Dolphin for creating some amazing game designs herself! Our annual April Fools post had the spotlight yesterday, which featured some of her fantastic work. Plus, it relates perfectly to our gaming theme! See more of her work on DeviantArt.
April: 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, Pop clubhouses, 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 April’s theme? April’s theme is…
Action & Combat!
A pretty intense theme, huh? With our recent April Fools prank, the PHB presented a Smash Bros parody game called Smash! Crackle! POP!, so why not continue that sort of fun throughout this month? Poptropica certainly has its fair share of fight scenes, particularly because of how many villains need to be taken down, which gives us great room for creativity with this theme. 😛
Need ideas to kick off your creative action? Why not draw some Smash! Crackle! POP! fan art? Though it won’t be a real game any time soon, we’d still love to see character designs in battle mode, or even some arena ideas, just for fun like those from Gentle Dolphin. Other than that, maybe write a story of your Poptropican facing off against the toughest of villains? Or perhaps create a perfect costume for a fight. Ready… Set… Fight!
- 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!
