Top 5 Picks
Cabin Fever by ToothlessDragon11
Oooh, a great piece to kick this month’s showcase off! The eerie lighting from the house sets a wonderfully spooky theme, with Van Buren’s intimidating silhouette drawing the eye in immediately. The simple color changes on the logs of the cabin display wonderful texture while maintaining the drawing’s smooth aesthetic too! Same goes for the awesome detail in the grass. You can tell that a lot of attention went into this design! And the cabin is a perfect feature for this month’s theme. Find her DeviantArt here.
Poseidon’s Throne Room by ray-of-flight
Continuing our apparent attention to detail, this piece is simply put: super cool. The blue color scheme sets up the appropriately aquatic setting and the detail in Posideon’s throne is spectacular. I guess you can really build a house anywhere, huh? Even underwater? Anyway, the cool-colored line-art is smooth, along with the soft cell-shading. What a unique, grand example of architecture! And the drawing was perfect for Mer-may. Find his DeviantArt here.
Desert Penthouse by Poptropicagatchavers
Wow, a Realms submission! 🙂 Feels like quite the throwback at this point, huh? Anyway, it’s always amazing to see the creativity that goes into building a home with such limited material, and this piece is no exception. Though simple, there is certainly detail on every floor. Pretty cozy looking for a desert, I must say! Hope that spaghetti doesn’t go bad. Find her DeviantArt here.
Monster Carnival Ferris Wheel by Kashews
Another eerie piece I see! Featuring the Ferris Wheel from Monster Carnival Island, this drawing is quite a sight to see. The smooth lines of the wheel show sturdy architecture (though I never personally trust the integrity of fair rides…), and the glow of the lights is absolutely mesmerizing. Super appropriate for the spooky aesthetic of the carnival! Even in the background elements, there is certainly attention to detail. The texture in the grass, bushes, and even the sky is fantastic! The cityscape adds needed atmosphere as well. Hauntingly beautiful! Find the artist in the comment section. 🙂
Mt. Olympus by happyclonetrooper
Gah! Beautiful! Happyclonetrooper never ceases to amaze with her smooth line-art and steady craftsmanship. The soft color scheme creates a gorgeous atmosphere and the detail in the sky adds wonderful depth to a simple design. Mt. Olympus is certainly a great example of architecture, and thus a perfect feature. Makes me want to just sit and watch the sunset on Mythology Island! Similarly, this Home Island Flute Arrangement by the artist fits this month’s theme creatively. Find her DeviantArt here!
There were so many different takes on the theme this month! Super cool to see everyone’s unique ideas. 🙂
June: 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 June’s theme? June’s theme is…
With June being Pride month, I see this as a perfect opportunity for Community Creations to show some support for the LGBT community. Last year for June, our theme was colorful, which is certainly fitting for the month as well. In 2017, the PHB kicked summer off with a pride party in fact, so why not keep that support going?
That being said, you can find pride is a lot more than just your orientation. No matter who you are or what your interests may be, it is important to respect yourself and others! So that’s what this month is all about! You can apply the theme of pride to anything you’re proud to show off this month, including your colors.
Show off how much your drawing skills have improved by recreating an old Poptropica themed piece! Give us a display of just how much time and effort you’ve put in to earning your huge medallion collection! Maybe you’re proud of your HUGE supply of Poptropica merch? And perhaps most importantly, showcase your pride in who you (and your Poptropican) are! Let those pride flags fly.
- 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!
