Top 5 Picks

Erewhon Days by epiphxny

epiphxny - Erewhon Days

Anyone here a Gorillaz fan? If you’re unfamiliar with this virtual band, know that this drawing is specifically based off the cover art for their Demon Days album. But, of course, the artist skillfully put a little Poptropica themed twist on the design! And who better to form a parody band than our four main villains? I would definitely pre-order that EP. Anyway, this design is fantastic! The characters’ expressions are great and I simply must point out how amazing Binary Bard’s makeup is. Find his DeviantArt here.

This is Home by ray-of-light

ray-of-light - This is Home

This is not just a simple drawing folks! This artist (Birdie-bee on YouTube) actually put together an animatic for the song This is Home by Cavetown, but with Binary Bard’s backstory. WATCH THE VIDEO HERE! The creativity and effort put into this submission is clear, I’m sure, and the video is put together very well! The lyrics reflect Binary Bard’s tragic story line pretty darn well, and the drawings that go along with the song are simple but stunning. The mood is expertly captured. Find his DeviantArt here and his YouTube channel here.

Puppet V2 by ANNE14TCO

ANNE14TCO - Puppet

This submission, like the last in fact, includes a song! However, this one also comes with a unique and creative twist. The artist of this gif actually composed a song herself, inspired by the creepier side of Poptropica. LISTEN TO THE SONG HERE! The composition is successfully chilling and goes perfectly with the upcoming spooky season of October. Featuring BlazingAngel123‘s Poptropican, the drawing’s lighting is super eerie, perfectly reflecting the music-box styled, well, music. Additionally, you may have noticed that this is the second version of this song! A first version was made prior to this one, which you can listen to here. Find her DeviantArt here and her YouTube channel here.

Home Island Theme Flute Arrangement by happyclonetrooper

happyclonetrooper - Home Island Theme Flute Arrangement

Yet another unique entry! Originally composed by Poptropica, this artist arranged the classic Home Island theme into sheet music for the flute. LISTEN TO THE ARRANGEMENT HERE! The tune, while simple, is extremely accurate to the in game music. Plus, now any musicians out there can play it for themselves! This submission was super different and obviously took a lot of effort. Absolutely amazing! Find her DeviantArt here and her MuseScore account here.

Fiona’s Song by izthewizard

izthewizard - Fiona's Song

So, anyone in the comments whose favorite island is Ghost Story? It sure is a classic adventure, in which Poptropica’s first glimpse at music takes place. Fiona’s song was surely a significant scene for all of us, and thus a perfect topic for this month’s theme. (Are you looking for someone?) This drawing is super cool, portraying a great mood in reference to the island. I especially like the ghostly glow added to the violin! Great coloring. Find her DeviantArt here.


Honorable Mentions

The submissions this month were so unique! And stunning as always. Remember, even in themes that are directly related to music, you can still submit animations, songs, etc. Can’t wait to see what you guys come up with next month!

October definitely is the spoopiest time of the year, so what else could live up to this month’s haunting aesthetics? Poptropica villains of course! Everyone’s favorite baddies can really bring their fair share of tricks, as well as treats.

Sooooo what are some examples of entries exactly? Welp, the list of possibilities is even wider than usual! Write fan-fic of your favorite villains teaming up, draw some creepy portraits of the baddest of bad guys, create a villain inspired Halloween costume, etc. Even compose a song based on some evil characters’ personalities!

Community Creations: August 2018

community-creations-logo

Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the August recap for Community Creations! August’s theme was science 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 Archaeologists by BeanSkelly

BeanSkelly- The Archeologists

This piece is stunning! The perspective of the scene is really well made, making the room feel practically real. The lighting is breath-taking as well, especially when it comes to the detail on the glass cases. The texture is wonderful throughout the background, going together well with the warm tones used. Finally, even though the room itself seems to have the most thought and detail, the characters fit in perfectly. Amazing job! Find his DeviantArt here.

Balloon.Experiment Girl by POP-whitewolf

POP-whitewolf - Balloon.Experiment Girl

A bit of an older drawing, but nonetheless great! While this is a totally unique submission, it still perfectly fits our theme and shows off a recognizable minor character. Shrink Ray Island science fair anyone? I love seeing fun background characters in the spotlight! The movement, however little, is depicted well and gives the character some lively energy. Additionally, the coloring is super soft and I love that you can see the brush strokes in this style. Fantastic! Find her DeviantArt here.

Villainous Visages Doctor Hare by Kennerium

Kennerium - Villainous Visages Doctor Hare

Oooooh! While this drawing is relatively simple, it still demonstrates skill. The color choices work extremely well with one another and even the simple geometric shapes in the background help to add interest. The emotion in Dr. Hare is super cute and I love the shading and coloring! Even the line quality is wonderfully smooth, giving this a nice, graphic look. Dr. Hare should be proud! Find his DeviantArt here.

Invader Zim AU – Ghost and Invader Hare by epiphxny

epiphxny - IZ AU Ghost and Invader Hare

Wow! Despite featuring Dr. Hare, a common choice for the “science” theme, this piece is absolutely unique! I may be a bit biased, as I am a big Invader Zim fan, but this crossover AU is certainly interesting. Dr. Hare could definitely pull off a Zim role, which really takes our theme to a new level! You can tell some thought went into these designs, especially considering the plot of this AU that the artist came up with. Not only is the coloring and lineart smooth and professional, but there is even a sequel to this piece, featuring Mordred! I’m digging the simple but cool background, as well as the characters’ poses. Find his DeviantArt here.

Science with Dr. Hare (Poptropica Descendants OC Short #11) by SuperGrape1

Dr. Hare: Greetings, I’m Dr. Hare, and today I will show you how to, do some science! *He smiles with excitement as he glances at the audience*.Harry Hare: Hey Daddy, can I help? *He asks Dr. Hare this sweetly as he gives him the puppy dog eyes*.
Dr. Hare: Of course, my son. *He smiles happily as he pats Harry on the head while he glances at him*.
Harry Hare:Yippee! *He jumps up and down with excitement as he glances at his father*.
Dr. Hare: Alright, now my son, we’re going to start by making the mind control serum first. *He smiles evilly as he glances at his son*.
Harry Hare: Yay! *He smiles with excitement as he glances at his father*.
Dr. Hare: Now, my son, be a dear, and get the formulas we need, they should be at my desk somewhere. *He smiles as he glances at his son*.
Harry Hare: Alright, daddy! *He searches the desk, and he finds the formulas* Here you go Daddy! *He hands him the formulas*.
Dr. Hare: Thank you, son, now watch as I put the chemicals into beakers! *He pours the chemicals into beakers and he mixes them together*.
Harry Hare: Yay, you can do it daddy! *He jumps up and down with excitement*.
Dr. Hare: It’s time to put the next formula into the destillator! *He puts the chemicals into a machine*.
Harry Hare: Yay, science! *He dances around in excitement*.
Dr. Hare: *He takes the new chemical out of the machine* Now to put the next formula into the bioreactor! *He puts the next ingredient into the bioreactor*.
Harry Hare: Yay, this is so exciting! *He hops up and down with excitement*.

continue reading

Even though this piece also features Dr. Hare, it still has another unique twist! I love seeing literature submissions, as they’re generally less common. In the author’s “Poptropica Descendants OC shorts,” many Poptropica characters are re-imagined with children, and it’s cool to see how the parents’ personalities reflect in them! Additionally, the layout of text stands out among others, considering it’s dialogue based format. Way to be creative and different with this storytelling! Find her DeviantArt here.


Honorable Mentions

Creative submissions once again! We have a lot of Dr. Hare fans out there. 🙂

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, Worlds houses, 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 September’s theme? September’s theme is…

MUSIC!

This theme may not directly relate to September, but I for one certainly use my earbuds to listen to music more often when school starts. Anybody with me? Anyway, no matter what genre of music you like, everyone has been caught loudly singing (off-key) in the shower at once point or another. So it’s a theme we can all find something we like in! Besides the obvious Poptropica elements of course.

So what are your options? Well, like always, they’re pretty limitless! Write your own Poptropica song or rap, recreate your favorite album cover with Poptropica characters, make costumes for your favorite artists, remix some of Poptropica’s classic background musicetc. These are just a few of the many things you could create. And hey, maybe I’ll discover a new bop to add to my phone thanks to your submissions?

No clue what’s going on? Go see our intro post.

Top 5 Picks

Slanted Fish by POP-whitewolf

Pop-whitewolf - Slanted Fish

Beautiful! The soft, but detailed coloring and shading makes this piece look marvelous. The sketchy background reminds me a lot the PHB’s very own wallpaper, as well as the styles incorporated into our headers! The brush strokes are smooth and I absolutely love the giant fish. Hopefully it’s a plushie? Anyway, Fishy looks fantastic! Find her DeviantArt here.

Spotted Dragon by Allisnn

Allisnn - Spotted Dragon

Am I biased in choosing this one? Maybe just a little, but can you really blame me? Either way, this drawing is also amazing! Again, very soft coloring and smooth strokes. The freckles in particular look really realistic. I love this so much, and I’m always honored to have SD drawn! If only I could make eyeliner and eyebrows look that good. Find her DeviantArt here.

#1 Fan by Creepingbear11

Creepingbear11 - #1 Fan

Cute! The Poptropica Community relies heavily on fan-art, so of course there are going to be talented artists that have big fans. In this piece, Poptropican Happy Stomper is Bashful Sword’s (BlazingAngel123 on DeviantArt) #1 fan! This was a totally cool, unique submission that stood out to me. Plus, I love the thin, kinda sketchy style (that can especially be seen in the hair and arms)! Where can I buy that shirt for myself? Find their DeviantArt here.

Blue Carpet Vlog by Fierce Flyer

Fierce Flyer - Blue Carpet Vlog

With July comes the Poppies, and with the Poppies comes fancy outfits! In this drawing, I love the inclusion of the blue carpet. The Poppies isn’t your average red carpet event, ya know! Additionally, the composition definitely stands out. The perspective of a vlogger is unique and adds a bunch of interest in the design! I mean, the Poppies do come with a livestream after all. The coloring, lighting, and overall piece is super cute. Find his DeviantArt here, and check out his posts right here on the PHB! No worries, I’m the only author that picks the art that’s featured. 😉

Getting Ready for the Poppies by xXLilAngel2004Xx

xXLilAngel2004Xx - Getting Ready for the Poppies (part 1)

Adorable! This piece is just the first part of a 4 part series of drawings showing off dazzling Poppies outfits. I like this one in particular because of how well each part of the outfit corresponds with one another, even the hair! Additionally, this style is just pretty darn cute. Reminds me of the Powerpuff Girls a bit! Can your fancy Poppies attire beat this? Find her DeviantArt here.


Honorable Mentions

 

Submissions, as always, were wonderful! (I always love some good PHB fanart… 😉 ) Thanks to everyone who sent something in. I’m excited for next month!

 

I also wanted to feature these requests that Gentle Dolphin made during the Poppies! It was a cool way to show off some of the amazing outfits that Poptropicans attended the event in. Look! There’s even a drawing of me! 😀


August: 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, Worlds houses, 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 August’s theme? August’s theme is…

Science!

August marks the start of school for many kids, and with school of course comes some core subjects. One of which is generally science! I don’t wanna bore you to death with this one, but science can actually be pretty cool. Not only am I looking for straight up scientific pieces this month, but sci-fi ones as well!

So what are some examples of things can you submit? They’re endless! Write a story of traveling through the body in Virus Hunter Island, draw some chemistry themed Dr. Hare fanart, or maybe make the most science-y costume in Poptropica you possibly can! Whatever you create is up to you.

Top 5 Picks

Pisces by ArtisticAsianBunny

ArtisticAsianBunny - Pisces

Another wonderful piece from this artist! The lighting is really immersive and the colors go great with the underwater setting. Do the fish really need to be prettier than me though? Anyway, the scene feels magical and the detail to Red Panda’s surroundings brings everything together. It’s cool to see artists stepping out of their comfort zones and trying new things, because that’s the only way to improve! Anyone else a Pisces? Find her DeviantArt here.

Coral Reef by Fierce Flyer

Fierce Flyer - Coral Reef

Super cool! The sketchy style and bright colors make this piece look playful and full of adventure! The quick brushstrokes remind me of ocean waves and provide a pretty decent sense of movement. The vibrant lighting makes for a cheerful mood and gives life to the plants. Fierce Flyer looks ready to explore! I kinda want more water themed islands now too, what do you guys think? Find his DeviantArt here, and of course check out his posts right here on the PHB.

Scuba Diving Purple Seagull by Purple Seagull

Purple Seagul - Scuba Diving Purple Seagul

Very nice! The bright colors really capture your attention, but still don’t hurt the eye too much. The neon vibe is super interesting and I love Purple Seagull’s design! The scene definitely makes me want to go scuba diving! All the blue makes everything look cool and calm. Find Purple Seagull often in the comments section.

Queen Naiad by JordynGowens (AKA Gentle Dolphin)

queen_naiad_by_jordyngowens-dcfogi6

It may not be mer–May anymore, but this drawing still definitely fits our theme! Modeled after a mermaid costume made by It’s a Poptropica Blog, lots of thought was sure put into this character. Not only is this well drawn, but even a bit of backstory was described by the artist. The bubbles make for a simple, but still interesting background and the blue colors really pop! Find her DeviantArt here.

Poseidon Pop Worlds Style by SuperGrape1

SuperGrape1 - Poseidon Pop Worlds Style

This one is a bit simple compared to others, but still a nice drawing nonetheless! The colors are spot on, matching our beloved Greek god perfectly. And I must say, Poseidon has to be the best mascot for this month’s theme! A wonderful choice for this illustration. Who is your favorite Poptropica deity? Find her DeviantArt here.


Honorable Mentions

We were just a bit short on artwork this month compared to others, so we don’t have honorable mentions to share, but that doesn’t mean these submissions weren’t awesome! Be sure to keep sending us your creations, because we love featuring Poptropicans with such amazing talent. 😀


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, Worlds houses, 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…

Blogs & Fans!

July is the PHB’s anniversary month, and that means more than our annual award livestream! It’s a huge occasion, and it baffles my mind how long this site has been running. Though we’ve lost authors along the way, it’s sites like this one that keep the Poptropica fanbase thriving! The fans are what have held the game up all these years, so I think it’s time to celebrate that in Community Creations!

So, what can you submit? Draw some cool group illustrations of PHB (or other blogs) authors! Write a “Pop 5” style post about your favorite parts of your favorite blogs! Create Poptropica costumes of what you think the ultimate fan looks like! Even write songs or poems dedicated to what makes Poptropica so great. You might be wondering… is this month’s theme an excuse just to let us PHB authors get some fan art out of you guys? Well… I have the right to remain silent on that.

And for your inspiration, a major throwback:

Top 5 Picks

When You Meet Your Favorite Superhero by Gentle Dolphin aka JordynGowens

Gentle Dolphin aka JordynGowens - When You Meet Your Favorite Superhero

If you couldn’t tell, this drawing is a reference to Wonder Woman’s appearance on Greek Sea Odyssey Island. Big DC fans were psyched to see her, I’m sure, so I bet they’d especially love this piece. The coloring is super accurate and the line-art is crisp, primarily on the drawing’s subject of course. Wonder Woman looks strong and confident in that pose! And the fans’ emotion is well depicted. Great detail! Find her DeviantArt here.

Heroes of Greek Myth by epiphxny

epiphxny - Heroes of Greek Myth

You can easily tell that a lot of work went into this piece! The lighting is fantastic and makes the heroes look like their glowing with power and confidence. The coloring is simple and soft, and I love the style that the Poptropicans are drawn in. Greek myths have always been a big part of Poptropica, from the original Mythology Island to the more recent Greek Sea Odyssey Island. It’s certainly a fan favorite subject! From left to right in the illustration, we have Perseus, Atalanta and Hercules, all from stories you might be familiar with. Amazing work! Find his DeviantArt here.

World Guy: The First on the Force by Sporty Boa

Sporty Boa - World Guy The First on the Force

I think the similarities between Poptropica’s World Guy and Marvel’s Captain America can’t be ignored, and this drawing highlights those perfectly. In this comparison, the artist mimicked a well known Marvel poster, but with our beloved PoptropiCon hero in center stage! This entire idea was really neat and well executed. The pose and other details are super accurate, as seen in this side by side image. While Greek heroes tend to be fan favorites, PoptropiCon is also chock full of some amazing supers. Wonderful drawing! Find his Twitter here.

Marvel Madness by Spotted Eagle

Spotted Eagle - Marvel Madness

What a line up! Marvel’s popularity these days is anything but quiet, and this collage of characters is a perfect example of that superhero adoration. With a mixture of editing and in game costumes, this assortment really brings to life what some of pop culture’s most well known (and less known) heroes would look like as Poptropicans. Can you recognize everyone? Who kinda wants another superhero oriented island in Poptropica Worlds now? Nice work! Friend them with the username dad34853.

Pretzel Break in Super Power Island by ChibiNeko-Lover

ChibiNeko-Lover - Pretzel Break in Superpower Island

Super Power Island is obviously a great choice for this month’s theme. And we have to remember that superheroes need a break every now and then too! You can’t tell me that you didn’t just wanna stop and eat a pretzel when you got stuck on this island. Anyway, the composition of this drawing is wonderful, the camera angle adds lots of interest! Not to mention all the detail in every inch of the piece and the cool, bright colors. Great work! Find her DeviantArt here.


Honorable Mentions

 

Your submissions never cease to wow me guys! It was especially fun to see all your favorite heroes this month. We even got some My Hero Academia! Great work everyone!

Under the Sea!

With summer coming up for most Poptropicans, a cool down is needed. Whether that be a pool party with friends or a full on beach vacation, water is the key element! And Poptropica doesn’t shy away from the ocean. So, for this month, make something related to water! Or, in more fun terms, under the sea!

The possibilities are endless as usual. Draw your favorite underwater Poptropicans, like Poseidon! Create the perfect beach day outfit for Wimpy Boardwalk! Write about your thrilling adventures in Mission Atlantis! The details are up to you, so have fun!

Ex Super Villains Doing not so Super Things by CrazyPaintbrush

CrazyPaintbrush - Ex Super Villains Doing Not So Super Things

This is super cute! I snickered a bit when I saw this, because it’s really funny to imagine all these big bad villains doing… well, “not so super things.” From the detail in Copy Cat’s book (How to Survive Roommates)  to the cool outfit changes, this piece was very thoughtful! If I had flying powers, I think I would use it a good 90% of the time to avoid traffic. Totally cool and funny! Find her DeviantArt here.

Poptropica Jokes by Creeper Queen

  1. It doesn’t make sense that Mordred (from Astro Knights) goes by his other alias, I personally think he’s non-BINARY.
  2. Does anyone know if Mordred is good with trading? He seems like he’d be good at BARD-er.
  3. What did Poseidon say to Hades (Mythology Island) after he saw pomegranates for the first time? “HADES look pretty neat!”
  4. You know how there are 5 episodes in Survival Island? Wouldn’t that make it Sur-FIVE-al Island?
  5. You know how Tessa Turncoat double-crossed the player? It was a true PoptropiCON in Poptropicon Island!
  6. After Mr. Silva tried to steal CJ’s invention, she needed to see a SHRINK for advice on what to do to prevent it from happening again!
  7. The Great Booga Shark never tells shark lies. He only tells the shark TOOTH.
  8. In my opinion, Red Dragon Island didn’t dragON for too long!
  9. Why did Salerno (Lunar Colony) jump into the portal in the end? She coloNEEDED to see that aliens were real!
  10. In Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Island, what did Willy Wonka say to Charlie after Violet blew up with juice? “Did JUICY how big she got?!”
  11. What animation company created Shrek in the Poptropica world STEAMWORKS animation!

Welp, I told you guys I was a sucker for puns! A bunch of these are pretty darn creative and certainly made me smile. I have to say that I’m impressed by how everything related back to an island so well. Plus, a unique written submission is always refreshing! What’s next, some Poptropica dad jokes? Find the jokes on her DeviantArt here.

Another Wild Adventure by ANNE14TCO and BlazingAngel123

ANNE14TCO and BlazingAngel 123 - Another Wild Adventure

Wow, we haven’t seen many collabs in this series! The combination of talent makes for one amazing piece. The shading, coloring detail, etc. rocks, but the facial expressions are what really made me laugh! I think most people can easily see their own Poptropican in this situation. Plus, it’s super cool to see a screenshot sort of style! The movement depicted is great, so it really feels like a photo was taken of the chaos. Find Anne’s DeviantArt here and BlazingAngel’s DeviantArt here. The former mainly did the coloring and the latter mainly did the lineart!

World’s Craziest Food Fight by Red Tomato

Red Tomato - World's Craziest Food Fight

A photo booth entry is always a nice change of pace! And this one is no exception. With all the chaos in this picture, it’s pretty goofy. I especially like how Red Tomato looks so calm in the foreground while everyone else is practically battling to the death! Have any of you had a food fight in school? Find Red Tomato often in the comments section.

 i bet yall werent expecting THIS by Napstachill

Napstachill - i bet yall werent expecting THIS

I… will never be able to get over this drawing. I always knew Zeus was the god of thunder but I never knew he had thunder thighs too! Look at his smug face! It’s hilarious and like the title implies… unexpected. Though the drawing is a bit dated by now, I think it holds up to the test of time. It’s pretty simple, but well made nonetheless. Find their DeviantArt here.

Not a whole lot of entries this month, but still good ones regardless. Keep showing us your amazing talent guys!

Even if you aren’t on the superhero hype train, Poptropica has it’s own set of otherworldly protectors. From Super Power Island itself to PoptropiCon, caped Poptropicans are hard to miss!

So, what sort of stuff can you make? You could write up a Poptropica comic, starring your own Poptropican as the hero! Or, create Poptropica costumes for your favorite Marvel, DC, and other characters. Even draw some of your favorite PoptropiCon inspired battles perhaps! The list goes on, so have fun with it!

Top 5 Picks

Amenthes and Keres by WitchyArtistGal (formerly TechnoBunny16)

WitchyArtistGal - Amenthes and Keres

In Poptropica, we’ve traveled to many different time periods, but no one island has been centered completely around Egyptian mythology (though we do see Egypt in Nabooti Island). Still, Poptropica loves its mythology and this drawing not only features an Egyptian character, but a Greek one as well! I especially like the incorporation of animal legs and tail, which aren’t too common in the game. Though the photo quality is a bit rough, you can still tell that the colors and outfits are spot on, working well together. Find her DeviantArt here.

Medusa by SuperFlameKitty

SuperFlameKitty - Medusa

Unsurprisingly, another mythology piece! Though, this one is a bit darker. Not only does it give us a glimpse into Medusa’s backstory, but it also brings up a theory of why Poptropicans don’t have necks. The artist explains,

The myth is that when Medusa was hunted down by a warrior, he only managed to cut off her neck. Right before she was about to die, through sheer determination, her head started floating and she survived the beheading. Athena, impressed, declared that surviving without a neck was a sign of strength. And bada bing bada boom. Poptropicans now don’t have necks.

Grim, but a super cool theory! The perspective/composition in the drawing is captivating, and the juxtaposition between the darkness enveloping Medusa and the light from the doorway creates great atmosphere. Emotional, detailed, and amazing! Find their DeviantArt here.

Mystery Train Island by Red Tomato

Red Tomato - Mystery Train Island

Mystery Train Island is definitely a classic adventure, bringing to life the late 1800s. This drawing is super cute, showing all characters aboard the train. Even some items and clues were included. Plus, I think the numerous ‘???” capture the plot perfectly, haha! At every turn, the hero is filled with questions of “whodunit?” The colors are bright and there is something in every corner of the page, adding to the chaotic memories of playing the island and running around the train! Cute, good job! Find Red Tomato often in the comments section.

1920s AU by BlazingAngel

BlazingAngel123 - 1920s AU

What a throwback! This piece was made a while ago, when a Poptropica Decades AU drawing trend was going around in our DeviantArt community. Not only does the black and white color scheme capture this time period, but the fashion and overall style does too. A great challenge! I love the motion and the comical expressions. Find her DeviantArt here.

Frida Kahlo (but she’s a Poptropican) by ArtisticAsianBunny

ArtisticAsianBunny - Frida Kahlo but she's a Poptropican

Throughout Poptropica’s many islands, numerous historical figures can be met along the way. Including artists! However, Frida Kahlo is not one of them. This is a great Poptropica representation of her in my opinion. If you don’t know, she was a greatly influential Mexican artist. Perfect for our historical theme, and perfect for art! The Poptropican’s design, along with the background show off her style well. Super cute too! Find her DeviantArt here.


Honorable Mentions

It was very interesting to see everyone’s spin on historical figures and time periods! Especially when incorporated into the world of Poptropica. Super cool submissions, as always! 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-fic, realms, 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…

Humor!

If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring? …Pilgrims of course! No? Anyone? C’mon, it’s pretty funny. Anyway, spring is finally here (even though it feels like winter 2.0 for some people) and that typically means pastels and rainbows, despite the numerous rain showers. With some traditional April holidays comes pranks, jokes, and everything goofs. So why not have fun with it?

No matter what you submit, it’s gotta be funny. Not everyone may find it delightful, but I’m a sucker for a good pun, so you’ll probably end up tickling my funny bone no matter what. Maybe create a Poptropica centered comic, with all your favorite characters! Or perhaps make a costume with the most random accessories you can find? Even write a Poptropica themed joke book, with puns galore! The options to make people laugh are endless. (gif below from Pixel)
