Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the May recap for Community Creations! May’s theme was Robots (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
RoBard by AJ Box
This fresh take on our beloved boy Binary Bard is certainly a unique one. The robotic elements incorporated with the space elements make for a really interesting design! And yet the patterns in the torso and legs still clearly demonstrate this character’s identity. I especially appreciate the inclusion of the different planets around his head. Overall, this is an excellently executed and creative submission that fully embraces the robot theme! Find their Instagram here.
Vanquish E.Vile by Fierce Flyer
Of course, we can’t talk about robots in Poptropica without bringing up E.Vile from Legendary Swords, right? I love the smooth coloring and composition of this work, as well as the backlit lighting. It contrasts this dramatic setting with the cool, calm, and collected look on Fierce Flyer’s face! There is also a wonderful contrast between striking red of the robot against the cool blues of the sky and FF’s outfit. There’s even a blimp in the background! Find him here on the PHB and on the PHC Discord.
Friday Night Domination by AdventurersNHunters
Any Friday Night Funkin’ fans in the comment section? If so, you’re gonna love this submission. In this round, Holmes challenges Dr. Holmes Langley, but he’s not the only robot to be seen in this composition. From Sprocket, to Quippy, to Merlin, and other Game Show characters, this scene is full of metallic miscreants and silver sidekicks. Way to knock this theme out of the park! Find her DeviantArt here and her Instagram here.
Quippy by BrittScarlet
Quippy looks so cute here! Though this may be a relatively simple design, I can’t get over just how adorable our little robotic friend appears. Just look at that happy face! That, paired with the smooth coloring and nicely placed shine details, pulls it all together. Anyone else kinda wanna see more Quippy fan art now? Find her Instagram here.
Legendary Sword Fight by Invisible Ring
Right away, this video submission stands out. Not only is it a super creative format but you can also easily see how much effort went into its production. From handmade costumes and props to the prepared scripts and acting, you have to admire the work put in here! It was made during the Dimension Bros Poptropica Month event and certainly stands up today. What an epic Legendary Swords battle! Find her YouTube channel here.
Excellent submissions all around this month! It’s almost like you all were programmed for artistic genius. And as a proud member of the Nanobots tribe, I have to say that this theme was super fun.
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…
June is Pride Month, which makes this the perfect time to celebrate the LGBTQ+ members of our community as well as themes in Poptropica! In past years, we’ve celebrated with Monochromatic and Pride art themes, and the PHB has even hosted Pride parties. This year, we’re also honoring the occasion with a Pride design on the PHB!
Pride is something that we constantly have to work towards and embrace, so why not celebrate it yet again? The PHB hopes that everyone can feel welcome in our community, even if that takes a bit of patience and understanding.
Though Poptropica hasn’t been known to include openly queer characters in their islands, fans do not shy away from their own headcanons, theories, and original characters. So whether you are in the LGBTQ+ community or simply an ally, anyone can still participate this month! Perhaps HfEvra’s guest post on minority representation in Poptropica could help inspire you. And on that note, I hope you guys can remain positive and be proud of what you create this month!
- 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 both the theme and Poptropica.
- 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!
