Top 5 Picks

Amenthes and Keres by WitchyArtistGal (formerly TechnoBunny16)

WitchyArtistGal - Amenthes and Keres

In Poptropica, we’ve traveled to many different time periods, but no one island has been centered completely around Egyptian mythology (though we do see Egypt in Nabooti Island). Still, Poptropica loves its mythology and this drawing not only features an Egyptian character, but a Greek one as well! I especially like the incorporation of animal legs and tail, which aren’t too common in the game. Though the photo quality is a bit rough, you can still tell that the colors and outfits are spot on, working well together. Find her DeviantArt here.

Medusa by SuperFlameKitty

SuperFlameKitty - Medusa

Unsurprisingly, another mythology piece! Though, this one is a bit darker. Not only does it give us a glimpse into Medusa’s backstory, but it also brings up a theory of why Poptropicans don’t have necks. The artist explains,

The myth is that when Medusa was hunted down by a warrior, he only managed to cut off her neck. Right before she was about to die, through sheer determination, her head started floating and she survived the beheading. Athena, impressed, declared that surviving without a neck was a sign of strength. And bada bing bada boom. Poptropicans now don’t have necks.

Grim, but a super cool theory! The perspective/composition in the drawing is captivating, and the juxtaposition between the darkness enveloping Medusa and the light from the doorway creates great atmosphere. Emotional, detailed, and amazing! Find their DeviantArt here.

Mystery Train Island by Red Tomato

Red Tomato - Mystery Train Island

Mystery Train Island is definitely a classic adventure, bringing to life the late 1800s. This drawing is super cute, showing all characters aboard the train. Even some items and clues were included. Plus, I think the numerous ‘???” capture the plot perfectly, haha! At every turn, the hero is filled with questions of “whodunit?” The colors are bright and there is something in every corner of the page, adding to the chaotic memories of playing the island and running around the train! Cute, good job! Find Red Tomato often in the comments section.

1920s AU by BlazingAngel

BlazingAngel123 - 1920s AU

What a throwback! This piece was made a while ago, when a Poptropica Decades AU drawing trend was going around in our DeviantArt community. Not only does the black and white color scheme capture this time period, but the fashion and overall style does too. A great challenge! I love the motion and the comical expressions. Find her DeviantArt here.

Frida Kahlo (but she’s a Poptropican) by ArtisticAsianBunny

ArtisticAsianBunny - Frida Kahlo but she's a Poptropican

Throughout Poptropica’s many islands, numerous historical figures can be met along the way. Including artists! However, Frida Kahlo is not one of them. This is a great Poptropica representation of her in my opinion. If you don’t know, she was a greatly influential Mexican artist. Perfect for our historical theme, and perfect for art! The Poptropican’s design, along with the background show off her style well. Super cute too! Find her DeviantArt here.


Honorable Mentions

It was very interesting to see everyone’s spin on historical figures and time periods! Especially when incorporated into the world of Poptropica. Super cool submissions, as always! Keep it up! 🙂


April: 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 April’s theme? April’s theme is…

Humor!

If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring? …Pilgrims of course! No? Anyone? C’mon, it’s pretty funny. Anyway, spring is finally here (even though it feels like winter 2.0 for some people) and that typically means pastels and rainbows, despite the numerous rain showers. With some traditional April holidays comes pranks, jokes, and everything goofs. So why not have fun with it?

No matter what you submit, it’s gotta be funny. Not everyone may find it delightful, but I’m a sucker for a good pun, so you’ll probably end up tickling my funny bone no matter what. Maybe create a Poptropica centered comic, with all your favorite characters! Or perhaps make a costume with the most random accessories you can find? Even write a Poptropica themed joke book, with puns galore! The options to make people laugh are endless. (gif below from Pixel)

  • 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!

PHB Sneak Peaks: The Dead King

March 22nd, 2009 #9

[-!CLASSIFIED!-]


-Poptropica Help Blog Sneak Peaks-

Welcome to another wonderful week of ‘Poptropica Help Blog Sneak Peaks’. These posts are posted every week on Sundays. In every new post there will be stories that only we have. And only we post them. These stories are classified and are very secret.
This week’s story is ”The Dead King”, It is about the mysterious Pharaoh coming to life.

-The Dead King-
A Mummy!…I mean, A DADDY!

Out jumped Codien with a flashlight in hand, scouting the area for any signs. Codien had been searching for lost treasures. So far he had found none. He slowly shuffled down the cold dark floors. Raising his hand, shaking, his flashlight illuminated a dead end with a golden plaque. It read “DO NOT AWAKEN THE PHARAOH”. Well that’s strange. Codien couldn’t see any pharaohs around, how could he possibly wake one up. He chuckled, then stopped – he heard a noise. Breathing deeply Codien took the courage to turn around slowly. His flashlight lit up the passage he had just walked through but nothing was there. With a sigh of relief he took a step back. CRACK! He stepped on a old bone. Codien stopped. He could hear deep raspy breathing. Sweat beads building on his forehead he once again turned to face the golden plaque. Expecting there to be the giant, evil, smelly old Pharaoh breathing down on him. He took a deep breath, ready to scream. No one was there.

Codien let out a puff of air. He was shaking all over. He lent, half collapsing out of breath against the golden plaque. He really didn’t want to see an old wrapped up Pharaoh. Codien shot up. He heard a faint click coming from behind the wall. Before Codien could inspect what had happened the wall rotated with a whoosh pushing Codien to the other side with it.

On the ground sat Codien with his knees to his chest and his head in his hands. He didn’t want to look up. He knew what was just ahead of him. Sitting on a throne or slowly coming out of a sarcophagus, moanning with his arms outstretched all wrapped up in cloth. He looked up slowly preparing for the worse. He took in a deep breath and – “ARGH!” There in the corner of the room stood a Pharaoh. All glorified with gold and jewelery with his hands above his head wearing a creapy face about to tear Codien to shreds.

Codien took in another breath preparing to scream again. When a noise amplified from somewhere echoed through the room. “Hello. Welcome to the Pharaoh exhibit. Here we have a replica Pharaoh as he would of dressed back then. Beside him is his sarcophagus and of course inside is the Pharaoh himself. Please enjoy the exhibit and PLEASE DON”T TOUCH ANYTHING!”

Raising his head slowly he realised the Pharaoh was just a model. Laughing Codien strolled over to the Pharaoh and examined his outfit. It was amazing. Such detail and colour. He then looked at the sarcophagus. “Wow! I wonder if it gets a little stuffy?” Codien chuckled turning to the Pharaoh with a smile.

“Actually it does.” murmured the Pharaoh.

 

Mummys! Arn’t they just a treat? Well i can tell Codiens not a fan of them as you can tell from his encounter. So Pharaoh should be coming out in Astro-Knights we think. But how on earth does that make sense. Well this is a comment by Rachel that might be able to show how.

Do you think this is for Astro Knight, or is this for something else? I do agree, it looks a LOT like time-tangled island…
I wonder if the “French island” isn’t actually French at all. That picture with the statues looks like its from Rome, and of course in the French Picture you can see the flag (and crepes). Maybe this one is from Japan (or china, if they did it wrong) and the island has something to do with worlds!

Worlds! Maybe Astro-Knights will be about travelling to different worlds. It would make sense, we have a spaceship and we are going to different planets to track down the King and Queen. Or maybe these Sneak Peaks are for a totally new island that we don’t know about yet. Only time can tell.

So that’s my Sneak Peaks this week. Next week might be the last PHB Sneak Peak because PHB is working on something different but similar that will come out every 2 weeks and will involve YOU.  

See you next week. Hopefully.
