No clue what’s going on? Go see our intro post.
Top 5 Picks
Luck Master Costume by Young Rider
Kicking things off, this St. Patrick’s Day top hat is a show stopping accessory. I love the green, a color commonly associated with luck, used throughout the outfit to make it cohesive. Plus, all the natural, flowery elements help to tie in that lucky clover. Cool costume! Find the artist in the comments section.
Past Good Luck Charms by Dizzy Feather
Uh oh! Looks like even some classic good luck charms can’t counteract the bad luck this Poptropican seems to have. I love the cartoon-style humor that the two panels have. Very comical comics! Find her DeviantArt here.
Breaking Mirrors is Bad Luck by Golden Owl
Oooh, the lighting in this submission is quite captivating! The pattern of the carpet and the neon lights really capture this arcade-style setting and the over-the-shoulder pose of the character makes for an interesting composition. I also love the comic-style incorporation of text! It’s a great take on Ringmaster Raven’s boss battle, with the focus on luck making the scene feel all the more threatening and intense. Find the artist in the comments and on the PHC Discord.
Who Needs a Curse With You Around by TillyMeowJings-ARSB
Curses and luck definitely go hand in hand, and the curse of stolen artifact is no exception! Or, should I say the curse of the player themselves? The joke is cheesy but brutal, made even more so by the tragic expression of the player. Wonderful sense of humor! Find their Tumblr here.
A Real Life Leprechaun by sleepybiker
Of course, we can’t talk about luck in the month of March without some good ol’ fashion Leprechaun imagery. A continuation of this little doodle, the simple scene demonstrates an engaging personality. The style is super cute and the humor is quite light and fun. Find her DeviantArt here.
I have to say, I’m quite lucky to get to see all this amazing art every month! I’m green with envy over all your talent, and I look forward to what you guys submit next time! 🍀
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-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 April’s theme? April’s theme is…
📺 Reality TV! 📺
Okay, so perhaps Amelia isn’t actually getting her own TV series, but Poptropica hasn’t necessarily shied away from thinking in the realm of television. And with no new islands as of late, my mind has drifted back to some of the classics like Reality TV Island and how things have changed, like with its more recent revamp of Wild Safari.
While we’ve touched on this topic a bit with themes like movies & TV, I want to really focus on the (albeit not-so-real) reality genre this month. Draw your favorite scenes from Reality TV Island or its sequel, or turn your favorite IRL reality TV stars into Poptropicans by replicating their most iconic looks in a costume. Maybe even come up with your own reality TV challenge like a mini-game ready to play in Poptropica? The limits are up to you!
- 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, Tumblr, Discord, OR the PHB’s Instagram.
- 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!
