Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the January recap for Community Creations! January’s theme was Doctors (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

The Good Doctors of Pop by Gentle Dolphin

Kicking this month off, we already have such a wide range of Poptropican-doctors to feature! It seems that Dr. Lange is certainly a fan favorite among the community, but it’s nice to see so many other characters here too, especially since they each have their own unique color scheme. I love the four figure composition and posing! But I have to be honest… I would be a little nervous walking into Dr. Romero’s office. Unfortunately, a blueberry a day does NOT seem to keep the doctor away. Find her DeviantArt here.

Dr. Hare by Fierce Flyer

Ah, a classic doctor and quite the hare-raising villain we have up next! Though this design is fairly simple, the energy in the pose and the distinct texture in the colors make it really interesting to look at. It definitely matches a “pop” aesthetic, and the scraggly whiskers paired with the bright green goggles certainly give me some crazy doctor vibes. Find his Twitter here.

Poptropica Doctors by GEAR

Heh, now I think we all knew we couldn’t get through this post without seeing this trio in particular! Dr. Hare aside, I think that Dr. Beev and the fan-created “Dr. Nyah” are real proof of the influence and creativity of this community. And how cute is it to feature these guys as a little family? Dr. Nyah may be a little young here, but I can imagine her all too soon taking over the world. Find their Instagram here.

Baby Doctors by AdventurersNHunters

Okay, and here I thought we couldn’t get any cuter. These little critters may not have gone to college just yet, but they still seem professional enough to me. Featuring these characters as babies is quite the creative take on this month’s challenge, and I think a lot of their energetic personalities really shines through. I can’t take my eyes off of, well, Dr. Beev’s goofy little eyes! Find her DeviantArt here.

Glow Rave Dr. Hare by thehypercutter

Ooh, now this is also an interesting take! We see Dr. Hare time and time again in Poptropica, so it’s quite bizarre to see him with such a different design. I love the hypnotic, neon colors! And like many of our other features, Dr. Hare’s crazy energy really shines through. And I like that he’s still got on some pink and green! Find their Twitter here.


Honorable Mentions

Wow, who knew Poptropica had so many doctors? I wonder how much work it is to earn your PophD… *ahem* Anyway, top notch submissions this month!


February: 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 February’s theme? February’s theme is…

Pretty in Pink!

With February upon us, I can think of no better color to embrace this month than all pink! Now, I know what you must be thinking: doesn’t this theme entail more Dr. Hare art? Well, yes, he does certainly pair well with this hue. BUT, just think of what and who else you can use as your muse too! Gretchen Grimlock, Betty Jetty and Moreau come to mind right away. Or even the Heart Astro Knight costume or pink Dark Knight costume!

But even with all these pink-centered Poptropicans, you don’t have to limit your subject matter to just them! Maybe draw something completely unrelated to the color, but only use a pink monochromatic color scheme? Or if drawing isn’t your thing, maybe write a story where the color pink plays a very important role. Maybe create your prettiest all pink costume? The choice is yours, as long as I get sick of pink after seeing it!

Just be sure to get creative with it, because we have already had “monochromatic” as a theme in the past. Though we’re focusing on pink this month, your work does not necessarily have to be ALL monochromatic pink!

  • 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 some 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 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!

Snapshot Series

What would be an exciting post had I a better knowledge of the internet, HTML codes and computers.

Hey guys, I tried to do something cool for this post but it didn’t work so I sadly give you a boring, plain post. 😦

Anyway, as many of you guessed in the comments of a post from earlier this week, Dr. Hare’s most recent travel was to Bogota, Colombia! The flag probably gave it away.

Where was Dr. Hare?

 On Monday, we asked you where Dr. Hare was spotted this time. Did you figure it out? Dr. Hare was in Bogotá, Colombia! Here’s another picture of Dr. Hare in Bogotá.

And you can always follow Dr. Hare’s progress on our interactive map.

Poptropica Store, Website Updates

The Store is restocking!

The Poptropica Creators will be releasing new items for the Poptropica Store every week during this summer! Incredible Fish got some cool pictures of the new Astronaut outfit that is currently in the Store for 75 credits:

The helmet’s lights will light up when you press the space bar. This is what the astronaut looks like when the lights are off (see left Poptropican)…

…and when it’s on! (Image below is from the Poptropica Creators’ Blog.)

Blog Post Title: Summer Store Fun!
Description: We will be releasing new store items every week during the summer!
For this week we’ve added two new items: Multiverse and a new Astronaut outfit.
As many of you know the Creators visted some or your Multiverse rooms. It was really cool chatting and battling with many of you, but sadly a few of you totally destroyed us at some of the games…Ouch!

Check out the post below to learn more about the Multiverse, a new dimension of Poptropica. Once again, I visited some more Multiverse rooms from PHB and PHF users! In Graham’s (Spotted Bubbles’s) Enchanted Forest room, I met Spotted Bubbles (Graham), and Curious Fang (known as Trusty Hawk on PHB). Graham left after awhile, but Curious Fang and I were still chatting with eachother when Dr. Hare, a Poptropica Creator, showed up!

Dr. Hare is the first Creator I’ve met so far, and I’m hoping to meet the rest soon enough! Hare has a 4-star battle ranking, and according to Curious Fang (who was dressed up in Binary Bard’s jester outfit but carrying a sword), Dr. Hare beat her in Soupwords and Paint War (but she beat him in Sudoku twice!). When I tried to Costumize him, it turned out only his teeth (with the big tooth sticking out) could be copied.We also chatted with the Creator, and he in turn asked us some questions. After some time, Dr. Hare Curious Fang had to leave.

Soon, however, someone else came in. I got to meet Green Seal (known as Sparkle Star on PHB and on her Poptropica Updates Blog!), and we had fun chatting and playing games like Paint War, which she won. Congratulations! When we met, Green Seal was wearing her pink Electrify, which you can recognize in the photos I compiled from my Enchanted Forest Multiverse adventure here:

Met Dr. Hare

I also met some other guys from the PHF chatroom in some Crystal Cavern Multiverses. (One of the pics below shows Graham, Curious Fang, and I in his Enchanted Forest, which I mentioned above.) Yesterday, I saw Zany Glove, Lucky Spider (MonkeyTacoz), Squeezy Monster (and his clone, Skinny Chicken). Maroon Fly, another one of Monkey’s accounts, also joined in later, and so did a jovial fellow named Happy Spider. (I also found out that Invisible Bean, who I mentioned in the post below, was also another one of Taco’s accounts!)

Today I met Shoeless Runner, Silly Owl (known as Incredible Fish), Short Sun (or Technonerd), Shy Turtle (”Anti SG”), and a few others at Incredible Fish’s Multiverse. Maroon Fly wandered in again, this time dressed as Pinocchio. We later all met up at the top floor to take a jumping snapshot – speaking of which, did you know there’s a glitch up there which lets you jump up and down nonstop? Try it!

Multiverse Crystal Cavern

Update: A few hours later, I met some more PHB readers in Skinny Snowball’s Enchanted Forest room! Congratulations to Speedy Hawk (who also tried to Costumize me!), Moody Wolf, Young Skunk, Trusty Bubbles, Green Sword (known as Bashful Octo on the PHB), Zany Thunder (also known as Poptropicalthunder), Dangerous Shark (accidentally got covered in the first picture, but I left some space for you on the side!), Friendly Hopper, Skinny Snowball (owner of this Multiverse room), and Nice Turtle! Here’s everyone I saw gathered at the cool room:

BMN63 Forest

Also, the bottom part of the Poptropica.com homepage has gotten a makeover! Thanks for the news, Lazy Feather. And apparently, Reality TV Island is missing from the game’s map now! Some think that the island is being abandoned like Monster Carnival Island was, and others think it means that RTV is close to completion, which would mean that this is temporary. We still don’t know for sure what’s up, but we all hope for the second option!

But part of the homepage update shows that instead of the RTV hippie asking you to sign up to be informed of TV Island’s release, it just says ”next Poptropica island”, and the picture has changed to an envelope. It looks like the Creators are ignoring the existence of Reality TV Island, which had been set to come out in summer 2009. What do you think is going on?

RTV Missing, Homepage Update

There has recently been a rumor about the caterpillar on Shark Tooth Island being gone. (For those who have completed the island’s quest, you’ll know what ‘caterpillar’ I’m talking about.) This caterpillar was formerly on one of the statues in the Temple Dungeon, and if you bumped into it, it would knock you over.

We can now confirm that this obstacle has been removed from the game, making it much easier to finish the island. Our Shark Tooth Guide has been updated to suit this change.

You may have noticed a change in one of our Poptropica Help Blog sidebar widgets. The ”Recent Comments” section has been updated, and now it will show the Wavatar of the commenter. We’re hoping that this feature will make it easier to recognize the person, since you might often remember a blog commenter by their picture. A Wavatar is the WordPress avatar of a commenter here, and it is usually randomly generated.

In other news: The competition for Grumpy Wolf’s Poptropica account will be hosted soon. More details will soon follow. By the way, we might be making a Multiverse room for the PHB!
