Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the December recap for Community Creations. December’s theme was Goofball, so be sure to check out all the featured artists!
No clue what’s going on? Go see our intro post.
Top 5 Picks
Dullsville & Goofside Fits by Lucky Joker
Wow, wow, wow! Now these are some great, goofy outfits! I love the unique approach to this submission, since the IRL clothing stands out against drawings. And, of course, both sides of Goofball Island are wonderfully represented here. Very creative! Which outfit would you wear? Find his Instagram here and check out his PHB posts right here.
Balanced Ending by ice cream
This submission also captures both Dullsville and Goofside quite well. It’s great to see them balanced together here and the fractured composition makes the design really captivating. Gotta love that contrast between the color and the black and white! Which ending did you guys choose? Find the artist often on Discord.
Detective Duo by Midnightoilstudio
Another fractured sort of composition! I dig it! I think we can all admit that it’s a really visually appealing way to showcase two sides of one character. With this one, I especially love how the black and white detective is actually seen on a colored background, and vice versa with the popsona, Vi. It shows excellent contrast and balance! Find her DeviantArt here.
Friendly Feather as Blandston by Friendly Feather
This piece focuses more on the Dullsville side of things, which is ironically refreshing, huh? The black and white pencil is obviously quite appropriate, but I especially love that pop of red in the eyes. I love seeing all these OCs put into the environment of Goofball Island! Not dull art in the least! Find the artist often on Discord.
Mel O’Dee by Barefoot Knuckle
Speaking of OCs, this Goofball specific OC is super cool. According to the artist, Mel O’Dee (a Dullsville singer at the Crazy Club) was “inspired by old detective movies and a certain Disney film.” Talk about a great drag name too! Love the creativity in this character. Can anyone guess the original song that this pop version is referencing? Find the artist often in the comments section.
Great work as usual, everyone! Some goofy art, some dull art, but ironically nothing bland or boring to see here! Keep it up! 😀
January: 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 January’s theme? January’s theme is…
Episode 2 of Arabian Nights was recently added to the Poptropica map, though for members only, so it’s definitely been on my mind. Perhaps this will lead to more beloved islands returning? Hopefully episode 2 will be available to all soon enough.
In the meantime, there’s nothing stopping the rest of us from enjoying the island through art! And writing! And costumes! And- well, you get the rest.
As most of you know, Arabian Nights was was the winner of the 2013 “Create Your Dream Island” Contest, and with other fan-created island ideas coming to fruition, it feels appropriate to focus on this month. So let’s spend the night creating, shall we?
- 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, 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!
