Top 5 Picks

Season Fashion by xXLilAngel2004Xx

Ooh, covering all of our bases right away! Each outfit shows great personality, including all four seasons. The character designs show fantastic effort and attention to detail! Even the backgrounds match the seasons very well. The unique expressions, clothes, and posses show slight movement and hint at a much more in depth backstory behind each girl. Wonderful submission! Find her DeviantArt here.

Fall Forest by happyclonetrooper

Wow, beautiful! This artist never ceases to amaze with her warm lighting and color schemes. The landscape is simple but stunning, with a very welcoming ambient light. Both the setting and outfits of the characters are particularly appropriate for fall, fitting our theme perfectly. A world is really built around the focal characters of the piece, like a snapshot taken during a walk through the woods. Stunning! Find her DeviantArt here.

Seasons of Poptropica by Magniventris

Haha, amazing take on this month’s theme! The different scenes show a strong grasp on the topic, with a fantastic creative approach. There are more than four seasons when you stop to think about it! I mean, just look at Netflix! Ha, anyway, this piece truly feels straight out of a graphic novel. The humor is wonderful and the composition/perspective within each panel is well crafted. Plus, just look at that amazing color and line-art! Excellent! Find her DeviantArt here.

It’s Cold Outside by NineTenOnetyOne

Aw, cute! Focusing on winter, this piece perfectly encompasses the coziness of cooler temperatures. The outfit designs are very appropriate, and the minimal features still tell a big story about the dynamic between the characters. Wonderful personality is communicated through a small, cute scene. Great submission! Find her DeviantArt here.

Gentle and Amy – Spring 2019 by Gentle Dolphin

Wow, we almost hit all the seasons, huh? The vibrancy of spring is clearly shown in this piece through the warm, bold colors. Even the pose of the character displays a bouncy movement! The relationship of Gentle and her cat is super cute, conveying strong positive vibes when paired with the flowery background and bright color scheme. This piece is a perfect example of how a very simple background can make a piece look that much more finished and aesthetically pleasing! Fantastic, I love it. Find her DeviantArt here.


Honorable Mentions

That’s all of the features this month folks! Be sure to keep sending in submissions throughout the entire month! I’m excited to see what you guys come up with next. 🙂


October: 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 October’s theme? October’s theme is…

Inktober!

Inktober is a huge trend throughout the art community, but certainly a big pressure to get done everyday. Don’t know what it’s all about? To put it simply, Inktober is a challenge to draw something every day in the month of October, with each day built off of a different prompt. Some people go all out, while others keep it more casual. But because of the broad prompts, we can apply Inktober to all kinds of creations! Now, I’m not asking you guys to submit 31 pieces, nor do they have to be ink drawings. No! But anything Poptropica related that you’ve created based on Inktober prompts, or Halloween themes, is completely acceptable!

Below, you’ll find a huge list of the official 2019 Inktober prompts, but please feel free to mix and match and add your own twists when submitting into Community Creations! This month is all about spooky creativity, so stay flexible! For example, drawing some Zomberries would be perfect for “mindless.” Perhaps a scene from Twisted Thicket for the “overgrown” prompt? Or a huge Red Dragon for prompt 12! Go wild! You can even apply these themes to literature, costumes, you name it.

  • 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!

Top 5 Picks

Hollywood Diva by Miss Eligon

Oh, Kirk. You either love him or hate him. There is no in between… Anyway, what a simple and great piece! The humor is super fun and the color scheme works really well with the Back Lot background. I love the shine in Kirk’s eyes and the graphic shading style. It’s just so sassy and wonderful. Find her DeviantArt here.

Poptropica Endgame by Magniventris

Wow, stunning! Marvel’s Endgame was an exemplary inspiration for this month. The poster design is iconic and the character swaps are fantastic! I mean, Black Widow is just a perfect fit, right? I love the dramatic lighting, serious posing, and intense expressions. Amazing work! Find her DeviantArt here.

Poptropica Villains Portrayed by Spongebob by Gentle Dolphin

Alright, not only is this video hilarious, but it is also highly creative! Each scene is amazingly accurate, great for Poptropica and Spongebob fans alike. I find the “as portrayed by” trend of videos to be super funny, like c’mon, you had to have chuckled at this one at least once, right? The amount of effort put into collecting these clips is obviously great, and I’m impressed at the amount of villains that were included! A wonderfully unique submission to say the least. Find her DailyMotion here.

Beauty and the Ringmaster by Meganf123456

Another wonderful video entry! I love seeing the creativity here. Tying in the story of Beauty and the Beast to the tragedy of Ringmaster Raven was an excellent connection. Like our other video feature, the effort put into editing this piece is loud and clear, especially considering the amount of original artwork put into it! Fantastic job. Find her YouTube channel here.

Screenshot Runaway by ANNE14TCO

Oooh, exciting! As if you paused an action movie, this screenshot style of artwork is very creative. It demonstrates a lot of movement displayed in one shot, proper intensity and all. Seriously, the caption, deep lighting, and expression in this piece is appropriately dramatic. Makes me feel like I’m looking at a real movie scene! Stunning. Find her DeviantArt here.


Honorable Mentions

Wow guys, I was totally blown away by your submissions this month! An absolutely amazing job done by all participants. Keep it up, because I’m excited for next month!

Seasons & Weather!

With summer coming to an end and school starting up again for many of us, I think that focusing on seasons this month would be pretty apropos. While some may already be missing the summer sun, I’m sure some of us are already looking forward to the spooky season of autumn! Every year, the weather just seems to get crazier and crazier, huh? Might as well turn that crazy into creativity!

So, what are the limits on your creations? Well, that may just be up to you! You could design stylish outfits inspired by the four seasons, or maybe submit some action-filled fan-art of Dr. Cumulo Nimbus! Perhaps write some fan-fic about facing the harsh winter on Survival Island, or even draw what it’s like to fly your Potpropica blimp in a storm! Your options for creativity are endless.

community-creations-logo

Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the June recap for Community Creations! June’s theme was pride 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

Pride Month 2019 by ArtisticAsianBunny

ArtisticAsianBunny - Pride Month 2019

Wonderful, colorful submission! With each character representing a different hue of the rainbow, I love the attention to the color here. The motion of everyone appropriately mimics that of a march, adding great movement to the piece. Distinct personalities are shown with unique poses and accessories as well. Great character designs! Find her DeviantArt here.

Pride Month Day 4: Cuddly Owl by WitchyArtistGal

WitchyArtistGal - Pride Month Day 4 Cuddly Owl

So cute! All throughout June, this artist drew their OC’s in various pride fashion. Not only were the colors of the flags creatively incorporated to each outfit, but the numerous orientations featured shows great diversity. I particularly like this depiction of Cuddly Owl because of the blushing joy on her face! A simple but endearing series to say the least. Find her DeviantArt here.

Pride Batch by Criaha

Criaha - Pride Batch

Now talk about diversity! This month, Criaha took pride themed requests on their Tumblr, all of which are shown in the batch above (OC’s and headcannon characters alike). Like other submissions, the colors of numerous flags are well incorporated into fun outfits here. I find the variety particularly fantastic, with orientations, personalities, poses, etc. ranging greatly. The differences between the characters shows an excellent grasp on design and attention to detail. An amazing bunch of Poptropicans! Find her DeviantArt here.

Desiree by DJay-Rosi

DJay-Rosi - Desiree

Another sweet entry, huh? DJ started a pride series of their own this month, similarly featuring the orientations of many OC’s. Desiree here is quite the eye-catcher, with another expertly incorporated color scheme. The detailed outfit and bright pink lineart make the character really pop, and I love the sugary vibe. The swooping lines, shimmery look, and cute expression make this feel like a super energetic piece overall. A simple bust, but stunningly executed! Find their DeviantArt here.

Happy Anniversary MissE and Cri by NineTenOnetyOne

NineTenOnetyOne - Happy Anniversary MissE and Cri

Loving these wholesome drawings! Showcasing the adorable Popsonas of two popular artists in the community, this celebratory drawing is perfect for pride month. The gift is straightforward, but is far from straight but certainly encompasses the importance of spreading love in our community. I love the joy in the expressions and the closeness of the characters! Totally precious dude. Find her DeviantArt here.


Honorable Mentions

Super cute submissions! Enjoyed seeing all the colors this month. Keep showing your pride and spreading the love!


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…

Technology & Social Media!

With the appearance of Blue Tooth on the Creators’ Blog, more frequent Twitter updates/interactions, and a new island on the horizon, I think this theme is pretty appropriate for the times. There’s no denying social media’s prevalence in our lives, and the dangers that it includes, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate its benefits! Technology is rapidly advancing and culture is constantly evolving, so of course Poptropica has been trying to keep up. But what that future may look like is up for debate?

No matter how Poptropica, or its Worlds counterpart evolves, social media and technology will always be a crucial part of the fandom experience. Soooo, bring it on! Send us your Poptropica memes, your hilarious gifs, the whole shebang! What would Dr. Hare’s Twitter feed look like? Draw us some of Shark Guy’s aesthetic Instagram posts. Would you follow Black Widow on DeviantArt? Draw, write, edit, and send us your applicable creations!

community-creations-logo

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

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.


Honorable Mentions

Such a variety of wonderful submissions this month! Exceptionally magical! 😀

Pets!

With the introduction of pets into Poptropica Worlds, it’s not surprising to see this theme arise. Moreover, pets are a big part of many people’s lives! So why not give them a spotlight this month? No matter the animal, pets are a beloved part of any family.

But what exactly can you submit then? Lots of stuff of course! Draw your IRL pet in a Poptropica art style perhaps! Or maybe design an entirely new Poptropica pet? Even write a story about the mischief your new furry friend gets into, or draw a dynamic scene of your Poptropican and new partner in crime! Anything related to pets and Poptropica goes, so get creating! 😛

Top 5 Picks

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.

Dr. Hare Carrot Cupcakes by Gentle Dolphin

Jordyn Gowens - Dr. Hare Cupcakes.png

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! 😉

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!!!

Top 5 Picks

space man take me by the hand by SuperFlameKitty

SuperFlameKitty - space man take me by the hand

What beautiful colors! Anyone in the comments an Ocean Man fan? I think most people know by now that I’m a sucker for a cool galaxy aesthetic. The colors in this piece are magical and blend together seamlessly without line-art (a talent I personally struggle with). Binary Bard looks perfectly glassy-eyed and ominous, giving the painting a mysterious tone. As eerie (apropos of this spooky season) as the scene is, however, I still have the urge to take that darn space man’s hand??? The facial expression and setting are utterly hypnotizing. Great mood! Find their DeviantArt here.

Plague Bunny by HoneyBox360

Honeybox360 - Plague Bunny

Another well-blended palette! The monochromatic color scheme of red really makes the green of Dr. Hare’s eyes pop, giving the hue a poisonous look. This piece’s aesthetic is not quite as eerie as the last, but it is certainly just as ominous. The strokes in the color are super soft and the silhouettes in the background add lots of interest to an otherwise simple composition. The simple style gives the subject a clear focus and the figure’s position definitely adds intrigue. A super interesting piece! Find her DeviantArt here.

Heathens by NineTenOnetyOne

NineTenOnetyOne - Heathens

Once again, a quite ominous tone! This drawing seems straight out of a movie poster, consisting of a dramatic and interesting composition. Lots of detail went into each character, with thought even put into the villainous silhouettes. The evil, threatening mood efficiently intrigues the viewer into the piece’s underlying story and the expressions clearly demonstrate the characters’ emotions. Amazing design!

Copy Cat by POP-whitewolf

POP-whitewolf - CopyCat

Who thought we’d have a submission without an ominous tone, huh? With a theme like “villains,” it can be hard to focus on the softer, cuter sides of characters. Still, in this piece Copy Cat, a classic baddie, is given a bit of a stylish, modern twist. The bubble tea and the casual, yet realistic posture of the figure adds another level of interest for the drawing, which would otherwise be a bit simple in composition. The overall purple hue softens up the character quite a bit, while still maintaining an appropriate aesthetic. Soft, subtle detail is skillfully included in the hair and clothes, which beautifully add to the realistic design. Find her DeviantArt here.

My Fan Villains Pt. 2 by MissEligon

MissEligon - My Fan Villains Pt. 2

Now designs like this are unique! I love to see original characters from Poptropicans in the community, but MissEligon (and Criaha of course) always takes it one step further. These characters are a continuation of the artist’s first batch of fan villains, with each design being totally different from the last. One thing I love about these collections are the diversity that they demonstrate, with a variety of personalities, backgrounds, body types, etc. included. These wide ranging traits can often be difficult to include in a single reference image, but distinct emotions have still certainly been captured in this series. And it will forever continue! Haha… right? Find her DeviantArt here.


Honorable Mentions

We had so many phenomenal entries this month that it was even more difficult to choose who to feature than normal! Because of the amazing number of submissions, I decided to fit in a few more honorable mentions than normal. 😉 It should be no surprise though, considering the huge significance of villains across Poptropica. All the submissions were stunning!


November: 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 November’s theme? November’s theme is…

FOOD!

How has this theme not been used yet? I have absolutely no idea. But anyway, I think food is an enjoyment that we can all relate to! Hmmm… snacks… *cough* And with the colder months starting for most of the world, sweet treats are becoming more and more prominent with upcoming holidays. So wouldn’t a food theme be appropriate for the occasion?

So… what exactly are things that you can submit this time around? There are a ton of options! Draw your favorite villains having a huge feast, create a wacky Poptropica inspired recipe, or even write a poem about your favorite foods showcased in islands. Heck, I’d be super duper impressed if anyone made sweet Poptropica treats in the real life kitchen! Captain Crawfish crawfish perhaps? A cookie shaped like the face of your favorite author? Oh geez, never mind, please don’t eat me…… ANYWAY, let the baking (literal or metaphorical) begin!
