Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the January recap for Community Creations! January’s theme was Doctors (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
The Good Doctors of Pop by Gentle Dolphin
Kicking this month off, we already have such a wide range of Poptropican-doctors to feature! It seems that Dr. Lange is certainly a fan favorite among the community, but it’s nice to see so many other characters here too, especially since they each have their own unique color scheme. I love the four figure composition and posing! But I have to be honest… I would be a little nervous walking into Dr. Romero’s office. Unfortunately, a blueberry a day does NOT seem to keep the doctor away. Find her DeviantArt here.
Dr. Hare by Fierce Flyer
Ah, a classic doctor and quite the hare-raising villain we have up next! Though this design is fairly simple, the energy in the pose and the distinct texture in the colors make it really interesting to look at. It definitely matches a “pop” aesthetic, and the scraggly whiskers paired with the bright green goggles certainly give me some crazy doctor vibes. Find his Twitter here.
Poptropica Doctors by GEAR
Heh, now I think we all knew we couldn’t get through this post without seeing this trio in particular! Dr. Hare aside, I think that Dr. Beev and the fan-created “Dr. Nyah” are real proof of the influence and creativity of this community. And how cute is it to feature these guys as a little family? Dr. Nyah may be a little young here, but I can imagine her all too soon taking over the world. Find their Instagram here.
Baby Doctors by AdventurersNHunters
Okay, and here I thought we couldn’t get any cuter. These little critters may not have gone to college just yet, but they still seem professional enough to me. Featuring these characters as babies is quite the creative take on this month’s challenge, and I think a lot of their energetic personalities really shines through. I can’t take my eyes off of, well, Dr. Beev’s goofy little eyes! Find her DeviantArt here.
Glow Rave Dr. Hare by thehypercutter
Ooh, now this is also an interesting take! We see Dr. Hare time and time again in Poptropica, so it’s quite bizarre to see him with such a different design. I love the hypnotic, neon colors! And like many of our other features, Dr. Hare’s crazy energy really shines through. And I like that he’s still got on some pink and green! Find their Twitter here.
Wow, who knew Poptropica had so many doctors? I wonder how much work it is to earn your PophD… *ahem* Anyway, top notch submissions this month!
February: 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 February’s theme? February’s theme is…
Pretty in Pink!
With February upon us, I can think of no better color to embrace this month than all pink! Now, I know what you must be thinking: doesn’t this theme entail more Dr. Hare art? Well, yes, he does certainly pair well with this hue. BUT, just think of what and who else you can use as your muse too! Gretchen Grimlock, Betty Jetty and Moreau come to mind right away. Or even the Heart Astro Knight costume or pink Dark Knight costume!
But even with all these pink-centered Poptropicans, you don’t have to limit your subject matter to just them! Maybe draw something completely unrelated to the color, but only use a pink monochromatic color scheme? Or if drawing isn’t your thing, maybe write a story where the color pink plays a very important role. Maybe create your prettiest all pink costume? The choice is yours, as long as I get sick of pink after seeing it!
Just be sure to get creative with it, because we have already had “monochromatic” as a theme in the past. Though we’re focusing on pink this month, your work does not necessarily have to be ALL monochromatic pink!
- 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 some 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 be sure to let you know I have seen your creation. 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!
