Top 5 Picks
DnD Night by BlazingAngel123
Ah, DnD, a classic hobby if I do say so myself! Each character in this composition has a unique expression and design, which really makes the scene dynamic. Can you imagine these villains actually playing games together? It certainly would be a sight to see, and I think Raven would make a great DM. Excellent work! Find her DeviantArt here.
Painting by iLee-Font
I think it’s safe to say that if you’re a fan of community creations, you’re likely a fan of painting as well. Poptropica’s art community is strong and talented as ever, so of course painting is a perfect hobby to showcase! And who better to showcase it than Black Widow herself? I love her design in this piece, and I love the more pastel color scheme. Absolutely wonderful! Find their DeviantArt here.
Poptropica Chess Playing by AdventurersNHunters
Another classic game! For some reason, it is super easy for me to imagine our beloved Poptropicans from Mythology Island playing chess. And to be honest, my money is on Athena over Zeus. But anyway, I love the colors and detail in this design! The background and foreground work well together for sure. Great work! Find their DeviantArt here.
Extreme Work Out (Collab) by NineTenOnetyOne and WitchyArtistGal
Oooh, a collaboration! When two artists put their heads together, great things happen. I love the humor in this piece and the posing of the characters. Plus, dialogue always adds a unique layer of context and interest. You can definitely see the talents of both artists coming together here, which is a wonderful thing to feature! And exercising is certainly a good hobby to get behind. Fantastic! Find their DeviantArts here and here.
Ok by Criaha
Now music is a hobby that certainly has a place in Community Creations! This simple design shows a lot of artistic talent through subtle details and choices. The lineart and shading is smooth and the composition of the arms is excellent. Even the slight glow of the eye adds such great interest! Seeing Binary Bard in this style is really beautiful. Nice work! Find her DeviantArt here.
No honorable mentions this month guys, sorry! Keep sending in those submissions though! In the meantime, did you catch the PHB’s annual April Fools prank? I think that the work Gentle Dolphin put into it definitely deserves a feature.
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…
During these tough times, it’s important to stay at home so we can keep as many people safe as possible. But I definitely know that boredom can be a tough enemy during these times as well, but that doesn’t mean we have to stay bored! Finding a creative outlet that you can work on while stuck at home is a perfect boredom buster, so why not participate in Community Creations?
The theme is pretty vague this month so everyone can join in. Show us what you’re doing to have fun at home, with a Poptropica styled twist! Any Poptropica art (or writing, or costumes, or anything) you create purely out of boredom is perfectly acceptable to submit. So get out of bed and get creating! Having trouble? Check out our post on what to do in Poptropica during quarantine to spark some inspiration!
- 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!
