Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the February recap for Community Creations! February’s theme was Pretty in Pink (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
Pink Baron by Emuuuuuuu
Right away, I think you guys know that I’m a sucker for word play. And because of that, I really love the concept behind this submission! Not only is it a clever play on Red Baron’s name, but experimenting with a character’s color scheme is always fun too. And, of course, it never hurts to throw in that Dr. Hare reference. Remind me never to do laundry with him! Find the artist often in the comments.
Sir Alice the Heart Knight by Barefoot Knuckle
Oooh, pretty! Dare I say… pretty in pink! I love the incorporation of the Heart Astro Knight costume in this design, and it was a great choice to have the knight’s makeup and hair continue that same color scheme. And I think that the sun set-ish background similarly matches well! Plus, it’s great to see a reference to the Poptropica novels, as those characters aren’t in the spotlight as often. You can definitely see Alice’s fierce personality shine through. Find the artist often in the comments.
Completely in the Pink by Silver Horse
Ah, next up is a costume submission! I love that not only does this include a perfectly pink Poptropican outfit, but there’s a purr-fectly pink pet outfit to match! That extra step in making a matching pair really goes a long way. And to continue that match, it’s noteworthy that the Poptropican has some animalistic features themselves to truly sell the duo. I love that both outfits feature ears, a horn, nose/whiskers, and even a tail! I love, love love it (and I’m not just saying that because of the heart motif)! Find the artist often in the comments and on Discord.
Neon Pink by BlazingAngel123
Did you think that you could get through this month’s theme without seeing at least one Dr. Hare feature? Of course not! But even so, this is certainly a unique take on the doctor we all know and
hate love. Playing off of Nintendo’s upcoming Neon White game, it’s as if our favorite furry scientist was plucked right out of the world of Poptropica and placed directly into this new virtual universe. Plus, I’ll say it again… I am a true sucker for good word play. Anyway, I love the sickly bright shades of white and pink, and the new outfit design is just excellent.

Flower Elf Queen by AdventurersNHunters
And here we have our last, but certainly not least, perfectly pretty submission! Taking a Poptropican who is known for their color scheme and totally changing it presents quite the challenge, but it was pulled off wonderfully in this design. Though we typically recognize the Elf Queen in her gorgeous green getup, I’d say that pink suits her just as well! I would love to see her in this flowery attire come spring time. The Twisted Thicket forest in full bloom must be breathtaking! Find the artist’s DeviantArt here.
All these pink submissions were super pretty, guys! Wonderful job!
March: 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 March’s theme? March’s theme is…
With the final Dream Island Contest winner recently being announced, what better time would it be feature Ancient Egypt as our theme? Secret of the Jade Scarab Island embraces the aesthetics and history of Ancient Egypt, and so I think that we should do the same in celebration. Though we have briefly visited Egypt before in Poptropica, this island will certainly present a whole new adventure!
You could take inspiration from Nabooti Island, the store’s Pharaoh or Mummy costumes, perhaps the Poptropica novels, or even the Secret of the Jade Scarab’s inside look itself, of course! Maybe, if we’re lucky, some of YOUR creations will even inspire the Poptropica Creators in the making of this new island! So, put on those ancient creativity caps and get to creating!
- Comment below with a link to whatever you’ve created, email it to the PHB team on our Contact page, 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!
