Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the June recap for Community Creations! June’s theme was LGBTQ+ (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
Ace by Midnightoilstudios
Kicking things off with a theatrical Ringmaster Raven is perfect for pride month! The asexual community is largely underrepresented, so I love seeing it in the spotlight here. The gradient on the cape is beautiful and provides lots of movement in the scene. That dynamic pose paired with the bright background shapes makes for a really fun design! Find her DeviantArt here.
Beach Date by GEAR
So cute and wholesome! What more could you ask for? Dr. Hare and Dr. Beev are fan favorites, and it’s always fun to see them in more casual outfits. That beach setting is absolutely stunning and I love the positive energy of the scene! Lovely design that features the less dramatic side of pride. Find their Instagram here.
Rumpelstiltskin by pinklightningmc
Recognize this piece from our LGBT info post? It’s a fantastic addition to pride month. The bisexual flag gradients in the background, hair, eyelids, and earring are stunning. And the colors pair so well with the genderfluid flag in the shirt, tail, and ring! Not only is this a colorful masterpiece, but it also shows great personality. Fans have really embraced Rumpelstiltskin as a new Pop villain, and I love the punk aesthetic he brings to the table. And it just makes sense that a shapeshifter would be genderfluid, right? Find their Instagram here.
Gonna be Ace at Being an AroAce by Cool Star
Okay, you guys know by now that I am a sucker for puns. And that title? They aced it. I love the colors in this drawing and the use of painterly brushstrokes. Those rainbow kicks are so cool! I definitely picked them up in-game too. The inclusion of the “ace” playing card symbol is also a great addition, both in the flag and the flag post. And the stars really allow the Poptropican’s personality to shine through! Cool Star is pretty cool, huh? Chat with them on the PHC.
Pride Month by BrittScarlet
Another wonderfully colorful submission! Did you really think we could get through pride month without a ton of color? I love the bold gradient of the hair and eyelid. The colors’ soft transition contrasts the sharp rainbow of the background quite nicely. And the white dress makes the colors pop that much more! Who doesn’t love a drag queen, anyway? The design just screams pride. Find her Instagram here.
I’m so proud of all your submissions this month! Even though Pride Month has come to an end, I hope that you will all continue to spread positivity and kindness. Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and to love themselves for who they are. ❤️💛💚💙💜
July: 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 July’s theme? July’s theme is…
As we enter the month of July, many of you may know that the Poppies will soon be upon us. The annual PHB event is a favorite within the Poptropica community. And you know what comes along with that event? Fancy outfits of course! I’m talking award-winning tuxes and gowns.
So, extending the celebration of the Poppies into Community Creations, let’s get even more fancy! Perhaps make a drawing of your favorite Poptropica royalty? Or give your favorite villains a fancy makeover via your painting skills? A scene of Black Widow amidst her fancy stolen paintings, or Captain Crawfish amidst lots of a fancy stolen treasure could do the trick too. Maybe write a fan-fiction of the Fairy Tale Island characters all attending a fancy ball? Or just submit your fanciest in-game outfit!
Whatever you come up with, I’m sure it will be great as long as it glitters, is made of the finest silk, or is in any way expensive looking. Just remember to keep those pinkies up when you’re drawing!
- 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!
