Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the April recap for Community Creations! April’s theme was action & combat and the featured work is not in any particular order. Be sure to check out all the featured artists!
No clue what’s going on? Go see our intro post.
Top 5 Picks
Slanted Fish by iHateFridays
So much power in this piece! Fishy definitely looks ready for a fight, so the scene fits this month’s theme perfectly. The bold colors and glowing background bring a bunch of energy into an otherwise static setting. Moreover, the curves to Fishy’s outfit and hair show movement despite the stance being firm and stationary. I certainly wouldn’t wanna pick a fight with her! Great work. Find their DeviantArt here.
Poptropica: Choose Your Fighter by Maroon Raptor
How creative!!! Mimicking our recent April Fools prank, the idea of Poptropica being a combat game is super fun here. I especially love the particular characters chosen for this lineup. Both infamous villains and minute side characters are showcased, each with their own distinct personalities, skill sets, and flaws, showing the vast possibilities of the pseudo-game. I can only imagine how the fights would turn out! Brilliant design. Find their DeviantArt here.
Ready for Action & Combat by Quick Fang
A cute collage of characters! Poptropica’s photo booth is put to good use in this piece, allowing for a non-traditional submission that fits in swimmingly. I love the chaos of the setting shown through the different poses and emotions, as it ties into the chaos of action nicely. Makes the imagination run wild! What could possibly be going on??? Well done. Find the artist in the comment section. 😛
Dragon Keepers of Lightning & Ice by Silver Coyote
I walked into my cabin, a nice purple and orange castle like structure, welcomed by an owl that flew in through an open window. The brown barn owl held a parcel in its talons, as soon as I walked up to him, it dropped it onto my hand.
My name is Spotted Thunder, I have long brown hair and a Greek goddess crown. I have a dragon named Gale. He’s a purple wind dragon with two pairs of wings and aqua under scales.
I walked into my dorm, which I share with Skinny fish, Friendly Storm, Green Ring, and my cousin, Fearless Dragon. She has long blonde hair and she has a light fury named Pelus.
Looking at the return address, it was from Zeus, God of lighting and my dad. I opened the parcel and what was he thinking?
Picture this: a Sparrow size bird, frozen in ice. No, not the ones that melt.
I didn’t get this. Why on earth would a God who I proved my power twice in a battle would send me something that makes no sense?
Dun dun duh! Though the story is not near completed, nor has gotten to any climactic action scene, the build up of this tale is definitely captivating. The reader is immediately thrown into the setting and a conflict is immediately in the air. What could that grumpy old Zeus want this time? Wonderful start to a story, I hope to see it flourish! Find their Wattpad here.
Combat Ready AU by Prickly Penguin
Another super cool idea! This AU matches our theme perfectly, even fitting into our Smash! Crackle! Pop! pseudo-game. The sketchy design makes the piece feel like actual concept art, while still showing some nice action! From the characters, to the health bars, to the stage, this game looks like an absolute blast. Anyone else imagining Ringmaster Raven using a whip to say “Get over here!”? Just me? Anyway, find their Tumblr here, where you can see more art of this energetic AU.
Amazing submissions everyone! I loved seeing all the action scenes. But remember, no Endgame spoilers in the comment section!!! 😉
May: 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 May’s theme? May’s theme is…
Houses & Architecture!
Like the characters, the setting of Poptropica takes a bunch of effort to design. And on urban islands, that means a lot of building designs, oh which each has to fit the surrounding aesthetic. Plus, houses have become a big aspect of our Poptropican’s world as of late! So, with all that reasoning, I think it’s time to give our homes and other buildings a bigger spotlight in your work this month!
So what can you make? Well, send in screenshots of your own Poptropican Home of course! But that’s not all. Maybe draw your Poptropican’s dream room, or have Count Bram’s castle be the center of your piece! Write a story surrounding the creepy haunted house or design an entirely new building for an entirely new island! The limits are up to you, so have fun! 😛
- Comment below with a link to whatever you’ve created OR share it with me (SydVC aka Spotted Dragon) on DeviantArt, Twitter, or Discord.

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!
