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!


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-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 June’s theme? June’s theme is…

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!

Daily Pop

Don’t panic, folks, trained monkeys are on it!

This is one of those posts you might think “What in the world is going on?”. Truth is, it’s only a minor glitch in the game of Poptropica :). A minor glitch has occured in the Daily Pop. Yes, the comics are no longer being updated *for now*. When was the last time someone saw a new Peanuts strip in the Daily Pop? Like three months ago! At first I thought the creators just forgot about the comics, turns out that a glitch is keeping new ones from coming in!

Some of you have noticed a glitch in the comics section of the Daily Pop. They’re not updating! Our team of trained monkeys is working overtime to fix the issue. We will let you know just as soon as it’s resolved.

DIRECTOR D.

Don’t panic, people! I’m sure everyone will live for the rest of the day without comics on the Daily Pop! A team of “trained monkeys…” are being put to work on the issue. Are you calling yourselves monkeys, creators? 0_0. Umm, how smart are these “monkeys”? Hopefully they’re smart enough to actually use the computer and not completely wipe out poptropica’s servers and files in the proccess…hopefully. The creators blog will be updated, and the Poptropica community informed when the issue is over. Seems as if Director D hasn’t been posting in awhile. His last post was when, 2 months ago?

CC: Does that mean I’m safe?! Finally! I won’t be forced by those monsters to do all these posts! I’m free!
Elmopwns: Nah, it just means you’ll live for about one more day…before we invite the entire phb community to a feast in the next time you post (idea taken from conversation in the previous comments!).
CC: NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Why?! Why must you nom and torture me?! Why?!
Elmopwns: Because lobsters are delicious :D. Have you ever tried lobster Bisque?
CC: What in the world…
Lobster Bisque, yumm 😀 :

CC: Me in a soup? The horror 0_0…
Well, what’s your favorite way to nom Captain Crawfish?  Comment below!

In other short blogging news: My music theory exams are on Saturday (Pacific Time/LAX) time. They’re really hard music analysis questions with technical terms, over 100 words to memorize, different and complex notes and rhythms to answer questions about, and hardness overall :(. Wish me luck, everyone.

I will not be online for the next two days to post because of this and study. I’m also sharing just a bit of my parent’s companies. My dad’s www.bundled.com has officially launched into beta stage. The company helps people (18+) manage money and stuff. Read the webpage to learn more/manage money. Just a quick note, thanks for your help! It’s appreciated, guys. You’re the best community in the world. Ep signing out for two days, bye for now.
