community-creations-logo

Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the February recap for Community Creations! February’s theme was colorful and the featured work is not in any particular order. Be sure to check out all the featured artists!

Can you believe this series has been around for a full year already? In Feb. 2017 we kicked things off with the theme of “shipping.” Your creations never cease to amaze us, so keep them coming! 😀

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

Top 5 Picks

Early Saturday Fishing by Ally

AllysArt - Early Saturday Fishing

Wonderful! Super soft and colorful, with great line work. This scene is not one you find often in Poptropica fan art, but it sure is beautiful! It’s very peaceful and all the colors work perfectly together. I can almost feel the fresh Spring air! Stunning! Find her Twitter here.

Color Changing by JordynGowens

JordynGowens - Color Changing Characters

Wow! Great spin on this month’s theme. You may recall some color-changing costumes that were added to the Poptropica Store a while back, and here they are again in this drawing! Of course, totally fitting for our color theme. The bright, neon tones really pop against the dark background, and the poses are super cool. Everything is drawn smoothly and simply. Excellent idea and execution! Find her DeviantArt here.

Friends’ Love by HfEvra

HfEvra - Friends' Love

Cute! The art style is spot on Poptropica Worlds. Super accurate, outfits and all.  The lighting also brings to life the setting, because of how bright the sun seems. And of course, the rainbow ties the already sweet and peaceful scene into our colorful theme. A great cherry on top of this adorable relationship shown! Find her DeviantArt here.

Lover Bois by CraftyPoptropican

CraftyPoptropican - Lover Bois

So bright! This artist is never afraid to use vibrant colors, which was perfect for this month. The warm tones that were used provide a heartfelt, warm mood in addition to all the surrounding flowers. A great scheme choice! I’m blushing just looking at it all. The emotion is break-taking, making this piece totally deserve a spotlight. Find his DeviantArt here.

Rainbows by Criaha

Criaha - Rainbows Gif

Ooh! Now this is definitely something we don’t see every month, considering this piece is animated! Obviously the rainbow effect is perfect for our theme, but the gif format sets it a part from other submissions. The unique colors across the character really seem to highlight the different emotions the Poptropican is expressing too. Not only is there detail in the changing facial expressions, but attention was even made towards the way the body is positioned. I can see the effort put into this one! Find her DeviantArt here.


Honorable Mentions

 

 

Super colorful creations by everyone! Amazing as ever and always improving! With an open-ended theme like this one, your imagination is the only limit. And a late Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤


March: 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 March’s theme? March’s theme is…

Historical!

There’s no time like the present for this theme, aye? Lots of people think of St. Patrick’s Day when thinking of March, but not everyone celebrates such a holiday. That being said, it was influenced (like most holidays) by historical figures. Additionally, we’ve just recently reached Community Creation’s one year anniversary, a big milestone in the PHB’s history! Change is happening all around us, in and out of Poptropica. So let’s take a look back in our textbooks this month!

Maybe make Poptropica outfits for your favorite historical figures? Draw scenes from your favorite time period inspired islands, like Mystery Train and Time Tangled. Even recreate monuments in your Poptropica Worlds house perhaps. These are just a few ideas to get you started, because the possibilities are endless!

Framed!
  • 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!

Rock On!!!!!

In celebration of the PHB’s recent 3 million hits, check out Smockers’s comment in the post below for another mini-contest – the prize is free membership for your Poptropica account! 🙂

Congratulations to Ocean Clover ♣ for winning the original Wolf Quest competition – the prize (Grumpy Wolf’s Poptropica account) has been sent to her e-mail. Thanks to all who participated!

This is going to be a rather short PHB post, but oh well. There is a new PCB post called Are You Ready to Rock?

Are you ready to Rock?

The rock stars are back on tour. There are five different color choices for hair clothes and guitars. Hmmm…I could really use some orange hair to go with my little hat.

I agree, orange hair would look great with his little beret. Also, notice how the boys’ rock star costume includes a tiny triangular beard. These outfits come in five different colors, so it’s a great deal and could well be worth getting.

Anyway, dinner is calling. GTG. See ya guys.

Sneak Peeks

Colors All Around Us, Maintenance Update

Colors all around us – there are so many different colors everywhere! The earth we are on is an amazing creation. 😀

The Poptropica Creators must have been thinking the same thing. Comic Kid, a Creator, posted an interesting sneak peek of a colorful shop with clown gear. Thanks Blue 6254 for the news! Blog picture below:

Blog Post Title: Clowning Around
Description: It never ceases to amaze me that no matter where I go, there always seems to be stores that sell just about anything you can think of.

This sneak peek looks like it’s showing a nice shop stocked with colored wigs, hats with flowers poking out, balloons, glasses, and more! Comic Kid even seems to be waving to us in that picture. However, I’m not sure which island this sneak peek is for… 😦

Looking on the colorful side, there’s a new poll – no, make that 2 – on the Creators’ Blog. Thanks Cheerful Claw! The first one says: “GIRLS ONLY! – What is your favorite color?” The options are pink, blue, black, purple, yellow, green, red, brown, and white. Pink is winning this one. Don’t feel left out, boys, there’s one for you guys too! Scroll down a little to see the second poll: “BOYS ONLY! – What is your favorite color?” The options are a bit different: black, white, orange, green, red, blue, purple, yellow, and brown. Blue is winning!

Also, Director Lion (Gentle Lion) would like everyone to know that there is an ad between places on some islands such as Early Poptropica called “The Big Apple”. Remember to take a look at the posts below for some interesting Poptropica updates!

Maintenance Update
Last night and this morning Poptropica was down for maintenance. Im guessing it was mostly behind the scenes update, more or less the finishing touches on Bignate island. 😛
But there was one thing that i managed to see.
Email Notification SignupPoptropica has replaced the Bignate email to Astro-Knights email. Whether it means Bignate is soon to be released or maybe it means Astro will be coming out sooner the we think.

Hot news:
Disneys’ Lucky Socks (News on the new Disney double-ad, another Snapshot Sagas visit, and new clothes)
PHB Sneak Peeks: The New Knights of Poptropica (an exclusive sneak peek for Astro-Knights Island)
