Top 5 Picks

Cabin Fever by ToothlessDragon11

Toothlessdragon11 - Cabin Fever

Oooh, a great piece to kick this month’s showcase off! The eerie lighting from the house sets a wonderfully spooky theme, with Van Buren’s intimidating silhouette drawing the eye in immediately. The simple color changes on the logs of the cabin display wonderful texture while maintaining the drawing’s smooth aesthetic too! Same goes for the awesome detail in the grass. You can tell that a lot of attention went into this design! And the cabin is a perfect feature for this month’s theme. Find her DeviantArt here.

Poseidon’s Throne Room by ray-of-flight

ray-of-flight - Poseidons Throne Room

Continuing our apparent attention to detail, this piece is simply put: super cool. The blue color scheme sets up the appropriately aquatic setting and the detail in Posideon’s throne is spectacular. I guess you can really build a house anywhere, huh? Even underwater? Anyway, the cool-colored line-art is smooth, along with the soft cell-shading. What a unique, grand example of architecture! And the drawing was perfect for Mer-may. Find his DeviantArt here.

Desert Penthouse by Poptropicagatchavers

Poptropicagatchavers - Desert Penthouse

Wow, a Realms submission! 🙂 Feels like quite the throwback at this point, huh? Anyway, it’s always amazing to see the creativity that goes into building a home with such limited material, and this piece is no exception. Though simple, there is certainly detail on every floor. Pretty cozy looking for a desert, I must say! Hope that spaghetti doesn’t go bad. Find her DeviantArt here.

Monster Carnival Ferris Wheel by Kashews

Kashews - Monster Carnival Ferris Wheel

Another eerie piece I see! Featuring the Ferris Wheel from Monster Carnival Island, this drawing is quite a sight to see. The smooth lines of the wheel show sturdy architecture (though I never personally trust the integrity of fair rides…), and the glow of the lights is absolutely mesmerizing. Super appropriate for the spooky aesthetic of the carnival! Even in the background elements, there is certainly attention to detail. The texture in the grass, bushes, and even the sky is fantastic! The cityscape adds needed atmosphere as well. Hauntingly beautiful! Find the artist in the comment section. 🙂

Mt. Olympus by happyclonetrooper

happyclonetrooper - Mt. Olympus

Gah! Beautiful! Happyclonetrooper never ceases to amaze with her smooth line-art and steady craftsmanship. The soft color scheme creates a gorgeous atmosphere and the detail in the sky adds wonderful depth to a simple design. Mt. Olympus is certainly a great example of architecture, and thus a perfect feature. Makes me want to just sit and watch the sunset on Mythology Island! Similarly, this Home Island Flute Arrangement by the artist fits this month’s theme creatively. Find her DeviantArt here!


Honorable Mentions

There were so many different takes on the theme this month! Super cool to see everyone’s unique ideas. 🙂


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…

Pride!

With June being Pride month, I see this as a perfect opportunity for Community Creations to show some support for the LGBT community. Last year for June, our theme was colorful, which is certainly fitting for the month as well. In 2017, the PHB kicked summer off with a pride party in fact, so why not keep that support going?

That being said, you can find pride is a lot more than just your orientation. No matter who you are or what your interests may be, it is important to respect yourself and others! So that’s what this month is all about! You can apply the theme of pride to anything you’re proud to show off this month, including your colors.

Show off how much your drawing skills have improved by recreating an old Poptropica themed piece! Give us a display of just how much time and effort you’ve put in to earning your huge medallion collection! Maybe you’re proud of your HUGE supply of Poptropica merch? And perhaps most importantly, showcase your pride in who you (and your Poptropican) areLet those pride flags fly.

Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the April recap for Community Creations! April’s theme was action & combat 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

Slanted Fish by iHateFridays

iHateFridays - Slanted Fish

So much power in this piece! Fishy definitely looks ready for a fight, so the scene fits this month’s theme perfectly. The bold colors and glowing background bring a bunch of energy into an otherwise static setting. Moreover, the curves to Fishy’s outfit and hair show movement despite the stance being firm and stationary. I certainly wouldn’t wanna pick a fight with her! Great work. Find their DeviantArt here.

Poptropica: Choose Your Fighter by Maroon Raptor

Maroon Raptor - Poptropica Choose Your Fighter

How creative!!! Mimicking our recent April Fools prank, the idea of Poptropica being a combat game is super fun here. I especially love the particular characters chosen for this lineup. Both infamous villains and minute side characters are showcased, each with their own distinct personalities, skill sets, and flaws, showing the vast possibilities of the pseudo-game. I can only imagine how the fights would turn out! Brilliant design. Find their DeviantArt here.

Ready for Action & Combat by Quick Fang

Quick Fang - Ready for Action and Combat

A cute collage of characters! Poptropica’s photo booth is put to good use in this piece, allowing for a non-traditional submission that fits in swimmingly. I love the chaos of the setting shown through the different poses and emotions, as it ties into the chaos of action nicely. Makes the imagination run wild! What could possibly be going on??? Well done. Find the artist in the comment section. 😛

Dragon Keepers of Lightning & Ice by Silver Coyote

I walked into my cabin, a nice purple and orange castle like structure, welcomed by an owl that flew in through an open window. The brown barn owl held a parcel in its talons, as soon as I walked up to him, it dropped it onto my hand.

My name is Spotted Thunder, I have long brown hair and a Greek goddess crown. I have a dragon named Gale. He’s a purple wind dragon with two pairs of wings and aqua under scales.

I walked into my dorm, which I share with Skinny fish, Friendly Storm, Green Ring, and my cousin, Fearless Dragon. She has long blonde hair and she has a light fury named Pelus.

Looking at the return address, it was from Zeus, God of lighting and my dad. I opened the parcel and what was he thinking?

Picture this: a Sparrow size bird, frozen in ice. No, not the ones that melt.

I didn’t get this. Why on earth would a God who I proved my power twice in a battle would send me something that makes no sense?

CONTINUE READING

Dun dun duh! Though the story is not near completed, nor has gotten to any climactic action scene, the build up of this tale is definitely captivating. The reader is immediately thrown into the setting and a conflict is immediately in the air. What could that grumpy old Zeus want this time? Wonderful start to a story, I hope to see it flourish! Find their Wattpad here.

Combat Ready AU by Prickly Penguin

Prickly Penguin - Combat AU

Another super cool idea! This AU matches our theme perfectly, even fitting into our Smash! Crackle! Pop! pseudo-game. The sketchy design makes the piece feel like actual concept art, while still showing some nice action! From the characters, to the health bars, to the stage, this game looks like an absolute blast. Anyone else imagining Ringmaster Raven using a whip to say “Get over here!”? Just me? Anyway, find their Tumblr here, where you can see more art of this energetic AU.


Honorable Mentions

Amazing submissions everyone! I loved seeing all the action scenes. But remember, no Endgame spoilers in the comment section!!! 😉


May: 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 May’s theme? May’s theme is…

Houses & Architecture!

Like the characters, the setting of Poptropica takes a bunch of effort to design. And on urban islands, that means a lot of building designs, oh which each has to fit the surrounding aesthetic. Plus, houses have become a big aspect of our Poptropican’s world as of late! So, with all that reasoning, I think it’s time to give our homes and other buildings a bigger spotlight in your work this month!

So what can you make? Well, send in screenshots of your own Poptropican Home of course! But that’s not all. Maybe draw your Poptropican’s dream room, or have Count Bram’s castle be the center of your piece! Write a story surrounding the creepy haunted house or design an entirely new building for an entirely new island! The limits are up to you, so have fun! 😛

Top 5 Picks

Super Paper Max by Meganf123456

Meganf123456 - Super Paper Max

What a cool design! This Poptropica/Paper Mario crossover looks like a super fun scenario, perfect for fans of both games. The bright colors used reflects the upbeat, playful tone of both worlds, along with their sense of adventure. It’s great to see familiar characters in combination with cool OCs in this design. Fantastic work! Find her DeviantArt here.

A Late Night Game by themightywolftiger

themightywolftiger - A Late Night Game

Fun! I love the friendship between OCs shown in this piece. The scene is perfect for our theme and seems apropos for the world of Poptropica! The artist’s style, particularly in regards to their colored lineart, is distinct and interesting too. Though basic composition, the symmetry in the setting frames the drawing pretty well. I can tell that positioning was well thought out and worked on. Keep it up! Find their DeviantArt here.

My Poptropican Plays Poptropica by Red Tomato

Red Tomato - My Poptropican Plays Poptropica

Cute! I don’t know why, but the idea of our Poptropicans actually playing Poptropica on their own computers cracks me up. Would their characters look like us??? *cough* Anyway, I love the blue color scheme and the emotion put into Red Tomato’s Poptropican. Though the background uses a pretty simple pattern, the blue tones tie everything together and really scream Poptropica! Red Tomato seems ready for action. Find the artist in the comment section!

Fran Bow and Sally Face by xXLilAngel2004Xx

xXLilAngel2004Xx - Fran Bow and Sally Face

Ooooh, spooky! Halloween might not be around the corner just yet, but who doesn’t love some good horror games? These Poptropica/horror crossovers are certainly unique. Just thinking about Poptropica as a horror game… all I can picture is that darn Jersey Devil! But anyway, Copy Cat’s aesthetic is quite fitting, and the inclusion of an OC is always fun. The background photos are extra creepy and both characters are still super cute in the scenes. Wonderful submission! Find her DeviantArt here.

Silvermouse by Spotted Thunder

Spotted Thunder - Mouse

I love this outfit! Spotted Thunder turned their Transformice character into a Poptropican with this submission. With Transformice being an online game, just like Poptropica, I thought the choice was very appropriate. Not only that, but a story was written to go along with the costume. ST definitely went the extra step here, which is certainly worth a feature! Very unique and very nice. Find them in the comments!


Honorable Mentions

Though we don’t have a handful of honorable mentions this month, I definitely want to give a shout out to our very own Gentle Dolphin for creating some amazing game designs herself! Our annual April Fools post had the spotlight yesterday, which featured some of her fantastic work. Plus, it relates perfectly to our gaming theme! See more of her work on DeviantArt.


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…

Action & Combat!

A pretty intense theme, huh? With our recent April Fools prank, the PHB presented a Smash Bros parody game called Smash! Crackle! POP!, so why not continue that sort of fun throughout this month? Poptropica certainly has its fair share of fight scenes, particularly because of how many villains need to be taken down, which gives us great room for creativity with this theme. 😛

Need ideas to kick off your creative action? Why not draw some Smash! Crackle! POP! fan art? Though it won’t be a real game any time soon, we’d still love to see character designs in battle mode, or even some arena ideas, just for fun like those from Gentle Dolphin. Other than that, maybe write a story of your Poptropican facing off against the toughest of villains? Or perhaps create a perfect costume for a fight. Ready… Set… Fight!

Top 5 Picks

His Universe by pinklasgne

pinklasgne - His Universe

This amazing redesign plays around with colors and blending in a super interesting way! Binary Bard’s “pets” show a unique interpretation of this month’s theme and I am all for it. The sketchy but detailed style heavily focuses on realistic, yet slightly fantastical elements for one eye-catching piece. Stunning composition and color! Find his DeviantArt here.

Ziggy and Fearless Popper by criaha

Criaha - Ziggy and FP

Precious! This piece is simple but super heartfelt. The cute theme perfectly shows the love between FP and her new feline friend, even showing a bit of movement in the otherwise straightforward pose. Plus, I love how the cat emphasizes the lack of a neck that the Poptropican has. Love it! Find her DeviantArt here.

Black Widow and Her Spider by Quick Fang

Quick Fang - Black Widow and Her Spider

How cute! It’s always fun to showcase the softer sides of villains, and this drawing does just that. Even a cold-blooded thief can love a pet with all her heart, right? A spider is definitely an appropriate companion for our infamous artist. Adorable! Find Quick Fang in the comments section.

Pets Dance Party by Poptropica Girl

Poptropica Girl - Pets Dance Party

Haha, cute! View the entire dance party animation here. Though simple movements, the use of animation in this submission is a creative, fun idea. I like the diversity of pets that was showcased and the humor is perfectly cheery. The bright colors portray a very happy, energetic mood! Nice! Find Poptropica Girl in the comments section.

My Pets in Poptropica by Howlarmoon

Poptrop - Howlarmoon

Interesting! View Howlarmoon’s entire pet collection here. This series of new pets is full of creativity, leaving us to question what other pets we will get to see in Poptropica’s future. The fun facts make each pet a little more personal, and they definitely add humor to the set of submissions. Very cute! Find Howlarmoon in the comments section.

GAMING!

Poptropica is, of course, a video game, but has it been straying from its roots lately? In a recent post comparing our beloved game to Mocktropica, Slanted Fish explains how Poptropica has seemingly been more focused on aesthetic updates recently rather then feeding us what we’re all here for: stories. Poptropica’s gameplay is largely based on storytelling and quests, of which have been honestly lacking. Sooo, let’s return to those roots!

We all love Poptropica, but many fans aren’t strangers to other games as well! Whether that be MMOs, big-name story games, arcade games, boardgames, you name it… there are games out there for everyone. And yes, battle royals have recently taken the internet by storm, huh? So that leaves you with tons of options! Maybe create costumes in Poptropica for your favorite characters from other franchises? Or draw some sort of crossover between Poptropica and another game? Oh! Maybe write a story that drops your Poptropican in the middle of another virtual universe! I know that you guys can come up with some crazy ideas.

Top 5 Picks

The Phoenix by Magniventris

Magniventris - The Phoenix.png

Amazing colors right off the bat! With Raven being a fan favorite, there’s no wonder why fans are jumping to redesign his character with fun, feathery twists. The warm color pallet used in this piece works well with Raven’s brand new aesthetic, and the posing is fairly dynamic. Plus, the deep, dark shadows give the drawing a dramatic look! Great work! Be sure to find the artist on Discord.

Creepy Brain Transformation by Meganf123456

meganf123456 - creepy brain transformation

Talk about dramatic shading! The dark lighting of this piece provides it with an intense, mysterious tone that’s hard to match. Plus, the intense lighting of the characters really emphasizes them! The bright saturation is eye catching, and the other cool effects that were implemented truly makes this one feel magical. Find her DeviantArt here.

The Legend of Ramona by shinyb1rd

shinyb1rd - the legend of ramona (plus story)

From a time long forgotten, There was a girl named Ramona who originally belonged to a struggling peasant family under the rule of a Kingdom known for its corrupt leadership and greed. One day, the Kingdom fell suddenly after abruptly coming under attack by an unknown tribe who demonstrated to have mystical powers. The tribe killed everyone in their path: including Ramona’s parents and siblings. Before Ramona’s parents were executed, however, they put a mysterious necklace on her that they had kept stashed away secretly. Ramona, just a baby, was spared by the tribesmen and was taken away from the now fallen Kingdom to the lost lands of Lezvoya (les-voy-ah), A legendary country known for beautiful forests and powerful magic. Ramona was presented to the then queen of Aktesh, the most prominent tribe in Lezvoya. The queen, named Dara, agreed to raise her as her own. It wasn’t long before the queen noticed her necklace: it had unusual markings, and made her feel uneasy when she examined it… CONTINUE READING

Super interesting! Not only does this submission come with a spectacular story, but a spectacular costume to match! Though the story is a rough draft, it shows clear potential and dedication from the author. Both the short story and outfit definitely bring their magical elements into focus right away, intriguing the viewer’s curiosity. Well done, keep it up! Be sure to catch the author in the comment section.

Purple the Magical Princess by xXLilAngel2004Xx

xxlilangel2004xx - purple the magical princess

Super cute! Magical girls are nothing new in media, but have definitely become a classic. Poptropica’s big eyes and head match perfectly with this adorable design, and in turn match with the artist’s style. The pastel color scheme is in line with the cutesy tone, and really brings harmony to the otherwise busy piece. Amazing job! Find her DeviantArt here.

Aqua Tooth Fairy by Poptropica Girl

poptropica girl (magic heart) - aqua tooth fairy

An eye-catching costume to say the least! With the growth of Poptropica Worlds, it’s super cool to see the creativity of fans in the new game. The color scheme is bright and bold—a characteristic not too unfamiliar to magic. Furthermore, the colors work very well together, and pair nicely with the more modern outfit. The simple design makes me want to know more about the character! Great work! Be sure to catch the designer in the comment section.

Top 5 Picks

IT’S CHRISTMAS! by BlazingAngel123

BlazingAngel123 - It's Christmas!

This hilarious redraw brings some humor to the holiday season, no matter what Grinch is in your life. The scene is simple, but the amazing coloring and lineart brings great emotion to the piece! Little details make the air look appropriately chilly and despite what holiday you may celebrate, these OCs perfectly represent the chaos than family adds to any holiday. Brilliant redraw! Find her DeviantArt here.

Cozy Warm Night by ArtisticAsianBunny

ArtisticAsianBunny - Cozy Warm Night

Contrasting our first piece, this drawing really brings out the warmth in the holiday season. With minimal lineart, the colors and lighting act as the foundation of the scene, with the fireplace adding dramatic shadows. The composition perfectly reflects its title: cozy! And if the talent shown in this piece wasn’t enough, the easter eggs hidden around the room puts adds that final cherry on top. What’s your favorite reference? Can you find them all? Find her DeviantArt here.

Happy Holidays by ray-of-flight

ray-of-flight - Happy Holidays

Super cute!!! The minimal shading adds depth to an otherwise simple drawing, and the design is just perfect for the holiday season. I mean, who doesn’t love a grumpy Zeus-Santa? And Binary Bard surprisingly makes red and green… pop! The cartoon-ish emotion is charming and the coloring and lineart looks super soft! Find his DeviantArt here.

HAPPY NEW YEAR by CraftyPoptropican

CraftyPoptropican - HAPPY NEW YEAR

Continuing our celebratory theme, this piece showcases the colorful nature of the holidays! The dynamic fireworks and fluid posing brings life to the scene and perfectly emphasizes the party! The colors are bright and unique, showing the intensity of a romantic New Years tradition. Stunning work!!! Find his DeviantArt here.

Happy 2019! by ckrocks12345

ckrocks12345 - Happy 2019

Another unique piece! I’ve always been fond of pixel art, so this drawing is a great one to kick off the new year. The scene is simple, but certainly cool and colorful. It focuses on messing around with art and having fun, exploring and growing your talent. Anyone have any art related resolutions for the new year? Find his DeviantArt here.

Happy Turkey Sacrifice Day! by CrazyPaintbrush

CrazyPaintbrush - Happy Turkey Sacrifice Day

Cute scene! For all those living in America, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving Turkey Sacrifice Day! The humor in this piece is really fun and it totally captures the happy chaos of the holiday. These knights just go to show that family doesn’t have to be related by blood. Great coloring! Find her DeviantArt here.

A Classic Flavor! by ArtisticAsianBunny

ArtisticAsianBunny - A Classic Flavor

An adorable personification of popgum! It really is a “classic flavor,” and a classic item at that. I can’t remember a time when it wasn’t in the store! The color scheme of “Poppy” is obviously on point, and her cute simplicity is really that: classic. What’s YOUR favorite flavor of popgum? Find her DeviantArt here.

Ask IJ #5 by Honeybox360

Honeybox360 - Ask IJ 5

Another simple one, but another great one! Ask blogs have become a super cool trend across the Poptropica community, so it was about time we featured one, huh? In this particular one, you can ask Incredible Jumper practically anything! Despite the simple premise of the ask my OC trend, you can tell that this artist puts lots of effort into each answer. Just look at those sweet colors! Anyone else love cotton candy flavored ice cream? Find her DeviantArt here.

Pop-vember Day 2 by BlueShadow1300

BlueShadow1300 - Popvember Day 2

Now this is a unique one! Not directly relating to food, but definitely implying an upcoming… meal. Following happyclonetrooper’s Pop-vember drawing challenge, this piece was based on the prompt “scene from your favorite island.” Though Survival isn’t technically the artist’s favorite island, the scene still turned out great! The Poptropica-styled anatomy of Myron’s chef (dubbed “Clara” by the artist) here is super artistic and simply well drawn. Nice work! Find her DeviantArt here.

Delicious! This entry is super unique and fits this month’s theme perfectly for obvious reasons. Baking is a skill that can take lots of creativity, just like art, except you can eat your masterpiece! These Dr. Hare recreations are super cute and the various expressions show attention to detail. Plus, using carrot cake is a hilarious bonus. I’m really glad we got an actual food submission. They look good enough to eat! Find her Twitter here and check out her posts right here on the PHB!


Honorable Mentions

SlantedFish - 24 Carrot Diner - The Gang's All Back

With the chaos of Thanksgiving and the stress of upcoming exams for a lot of you, submissions were a bit more scarce than usual. So instead of the usual collection of honorable mentions, I decided to feature Slanted Fish’s very own creation! Her “24 Carrot Diner – The Gang’s All Back!” piece is a great “food” related piece, capturing the tone of November with a creative art-style. Check out her DeviantArt here! 😉


December: 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 December’s theme? December’s theme is…

Celebration!

December is a month of many holidays across the world, stemming from many different cultures. But no matter what your family celebrates, we want to see what YOU create for it! It’s important to embrace the world’s differences and celebrate what makes us unique, even in a small community like ours.

Soooo, what are you waiting for? The theme is super broad for ultimate creativity! Draw your Poptropican surrounded by friends next to a cozy campfire, make Poptropica themed holiday cookies, write a Poptropica story that starts off with a quiet house (where not even a mouse is making a noise perhaps?), etc. The options are endless. 🙂

Happy Holidays!!!

  • Submitting: Comment below with a link to whatever you’ve created OR share it with me (SydVC aka Spotted Dragon) on DeviantArtTwitter, or Discord.
  • Results: I will feature 5 of the submissions as well as 3 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 always be sure to let you know I have seen your creation. Bonus points if you make a compelling description for your piece! 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!
