Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the October recap for Community Creations! October’s theme was Ghosts & Ghouls, so be sure to check out all the featured artists (not in any order)!
No clue what’s going on? Go see our intro post.
Top 5 Picks
Ghost of a Rose by Midnightoilstudios
The violin from Ghost Story Island is definitely a memorable scene from Poptropica and fits our theme for obvious reasons. The soft approach to coloring in this work gives it an appropriately haunting appearance too. I can almost feel that fog! I love seeing these recognizable ghostly characters portrayed in this style. Find her DeviantArt here.
Daphne Dreadnaught by Criaha
A cool redraw of an older drawing, this design definitely fits the spooky season. Daphne Dreadnaught is such a fun character to see fan art for too. I love the subtle glow to the net and the different colored ghostly hands. And I know drawing hands is quite the feat! Find her Twitter here.
Ghost Story by Miss Eligon
Oooh, another Spook Central Mini Quest inspired submission! Again, that glow effect and the different colors of the ghosts give this scene great spooky atmosphere. I love how everything projects from the center of the design, creating a good sense of movement for the viewer’s eye. Wonderfully wicked work! Find her Twitter here.
Ghoul Costume by Comical Rock (Shiny Noodle)
Costumes are obviously a great approach for celebrating Halloween, and I love this dark design. What can I say, maybe I’m just a sucker for goth fits? Plus, the mask would come in handy today. Perhaps the outfit is not directly spectral, but it most certainly fits a ghoulish theme. Perhaps is may even be a good submission for Poptropica’s monthly costume contest! Though it’s too late for October’s Halloween winners, there’s always next month to participate. Find the artist commonly in the comments.
Grieving by Lucky Joker
Wouldn’t you know it, Ghost Story is not the only ghoulish island Poptropica has to offer! Made for Poptober Day 31 (ghost) last year, this work still holds up today. Vampire’s Curse certainly falls under the spooky island category, and the hazy image of Annabelle here plays into its haunting theme. I love the lighting and emotion that this submission has to offer. Find his Instagram here.
No specific honorable mentions this month, but that’s okay! Too busy trick-or-treating I assume! If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the winners of the PHB’s annual Halloween Costume Contest for even more grim work from the community.
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, 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 November’s theme? November’s theme is…
🍬 Sweet & Sour! 🍭
Maybe I’m still coming off my sugar high from all that Halloween candy, or maybe I’m just looking forward to Thanksgiving already. But either way, food is on my mind. But candied treats are not the only things that sweet and sour could refer to! Maybe you’ll spin the theme to feature a sweet hero and sour villain, or something similar, instead.
Go totally sweet or go totally sour, the choice is yours. Maybe you’ll candify your favorite Poptropicans, or make a candy inspired outfit in-game? Maybe bake a tasty treat based on Poptropica IRL, or write a story about a sweet and sour Poptropica feast! You could even take some inspo from the recent Candy Crazed event.
- Submit: Comment below with a link to whatever you’ve created, email it to the PHB team on our Contact page, OR share it with me (SydVC aka Spotted Dragon) on DeviantArt, Twitter, or Discord.
- Results: Next month, I will feature 5 submissions that stood out to me the most as well as some honorable mentions.
- Limitations: Just make sure you relate to both the theme and Poptropica (and nothing NSFW or otherwise inappropriate).
- 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!
