Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the March recap for Community Creations. March’s theme was Going Green, so be sure to check out all the featured artists!
No clue what’s going on? Go see our intro post.
Top 5 Picks
Bashful Icicle by sarcasm.societyy
Starting off with some sick fashion choices, I love the color palette of this design! Though our Poptropicans may not have necks… or ears… or noses… the added accessories here really bring the Popsona to life. The texture of the line work is quite pleasing and helps everything feel super cohesive. Maybe I should think about dying my hair green now if it looks this good! Find her Instagram here.

This green color palette is more muted, which adds to the darker tone of the work. Goes well with the earthy browns too! The character is a bounty-hunter for hire, yet comes to form a close relationship with Jorge in the artist’s Poptropica series idea. Cool design for sure, and definitely not a lady I’d want to mess with. Find her Instagram here.
Saint Patrick’s Day Smoothie by TillyMeowJings-ARSB
Okay, not only do I love the sequential approach to this work, but I also love the throwback to a certain diner that all Poptropica nerds know and love. I don’t know about you guys, but I would seemingly spend ours trying different smoothie combinations to get my hair color just right! Anyway, the design work here is really clean and the text flows well with the story. And I love the humor! Find their Tumblr here.

Of course, I don’t think we could have a “Going Green” Poptropica theme without calling some attention to Twisted Thicket. It’s the greenest island of them all, in both color and message! On Twisted Thicket, this character “lives in an enchanted mushroom cottage, and has the ability to grow plants, healing, and being able to understand and talk to animals.” Think she’d get along with the Elf Queen? Great use of different green shades to show the layering and texture of the nature-inspired outfit. Find them in the comments and on Discord.
Vibin’ in the Forest by happyclonetrooper
Ahhh, can’t you just imagine basking in that sunlight? I love that even though this is a green heavy design, it still brings such warmth into it with that super soft lighting. It definitely conveys a peaceful mood within this lush environment. I wonder what Maroon Ring is writing about? Find her Instagram here.
Wowie guys, I’m green with envy over all your talent! Keep it up! 💚
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…
🧟♂️🍇 ZOMBERRY! 🍇🧟♂️
I know there’s been a lot of frustration lately (some over the top, some quite serious) about Poptropica’s priorities lately, including their recent endeavors in Roblox. Particularly when it comes to this odd fixation with unicorns, seemingly only connected to Poptropica through Amelia.
And honestly, it took all my self restraint not to steer into the collision and make this month’s theme “unicorns.” But anyway! Zomberry Island remains a beloved adventure in many fans hearts, so with its recent Roblox revision, why not embrace it a little? At least it is an iconic Poptropican island, in contrast to Unicorn Frenzy.
So let’s get to drawing your favorite Zomberry characters, or maybe your own Popsona zombified! Perhaps write a fanfic of someone surviving the Zomberry apop-alypse? You could even design other fruit/food-related zombies! Maybe even take a crack at designing your own 3D Zomberry Poptropican if you’re familiar with 3D modeling? Cursed or not, we’d love to see it.
- Submit: 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, Tumblr, or Discord.
- Results: Next month, I will feature 5 submissions that stood out to me the most as well as some honorable mentions.
- Limitations: Just make sure you relate to both the theme and Poptropica (and nothing NSFW or otherwise inappropriate).
- 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!
