Top 5 Picks

The Phoenix by Magniventris

Magniventris - The Phoenix.png

Amazing colors right off the bat! With Raven being a fan favorite, there’s no wonder why fans are jumping to redesign his character with fun, feathery twists. The warm color pallet used in this piece works well with Raven’s brand new aesthetic, and the posing is fairly dynamic. Plus, the deep, dark shadows give the drawing a dramatic look! Great work! Be sure to find the artist on Discord.

Creepy Brain Transformation by Meganf123456

meganf123456 - creepy brain transformation

Talk about dramatic shading! The dark lighting of this piece provides it with an intense, mysterious tone that’s hard to match. Plus, the intense lighting of the characters really emphasizes them! The bright saturation is eye catching, and the other cool effects that were implemented truly makes this one feel magical. Find her DeviantArt here.

The Legend of Ramona by shinyb1rd

shinyb1rd - the legend of ramona (plus story)

From a time long forgotten, There was a girl named Ramona who originally belonged to a struggling peasant family under the rule of a Kingdom known for its corrupt leadership and greed. One day, the Kingdom fell suddenly after abruptly coming under attack by an unknown tribe who demonstrated to have mystical powers. The tribe killed everyone in their path: including Ramona’s parents and siblings. Before Ramona’s parents were executed, however, they put a mysterious necklace on her that they had kept stashed away secretly. Ramona, just a baby, was spared by the tribesmen and was taken away from the now fallen Kingdom to the lost lands of Lezvoya (les-voy-ah), A legendary country known for beautiful forests and powerful magic. Ramona was presented to the then queen of Aktesh, the most prominent tribe in Lezvoya. The queen, named Dara, agreed to raise her as her own. It wasn’t long before the queen noticed her necklace: it had unusual markings, and made her feel uneasy when she examined it… CONTINUE READING

Super interesting! Not only does this submission come with a spectacular story, but a spectacular costume to match! Though the story is a rough draft, it shows clear potential and dedication from the author. Both the short story and outfit definitely bring their magical elements into focus right away, intriguing the viewer’s curiosity. Well done, keep it up! Be sure to catch the author in the comment section.

Purple the Magical Princess by xXLilAngel2004Xx

xxlilangel2004xx - purple the magical princess

Super cute! Magical girls are nothing new in media, but have definitely become a classic. Poptropica’s big eyes and head match perfectly with this adorable design, and in turn match with the artist’s style. The pastel color scheme is in line with the cutesy tone, and really brings harmony to the otherwise busy piece. Amazing job! Find her DeviantArt here.

Aqua Tooth Fairy by Poptropica Girl

poptropica girl (magic heart) - aqua tooth fairy

An eye-catching costume to say the least! With the growth of Poptropica Worlds, it’s super cool to see the creativity of fans in the new game. The color scheme is bright and bold—a characteristic not too unfamiliar to magic. Furthermore, the colors work very well together, and pair nicely with the more modern outfit. The simple design makes me want to know more about the character! Great work! Be sure to catch the designer in the comment section.

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.

Top 5 Picks

IT’S CHRISTMAS! by BlazingAngel123

BlazingAngel123 - It's Christmas!

This hilarious redraw brings some humor to the holiday season, no matter what Grinch is in your life. The scene is simple, but the amazing coloring and lineart brings great emotion to the piece! Little details make the air look appropriately chilly and despite what holiday you may celebrate, these OCs perfectly represent the chaos than family adds to any holiday. Brilliant redraw! Find her DeviantArt here.

Cozy Warm Night by ArtisticAsianBunny

ArtisticAsianBunny - Cozy Warm Night

Contrasting our first piece, this drawing really brings out the warmth in the holiday season. With minimal lineart, the colors and lighting act as the foundation of the scene, with the fireplace adding dramatic shadows. The composition perfectly reflects its title: cozy! And if the talent shown in this piece wasn’t enough, the easter eggs hidden around the room puts adds that final cherry on top. What’s your favorite reference? Can you find them all? Find her DeviantArt here.

Happy Holidays by ray-of-flight

ray-of-flight - Happy Holidays

Super cute!!! The minimal shading adds depth to an otherwise simple drawing, and the design is just perfect for the holiday season. I mean, who doesn’t love a grumpy Zeus-Santa? And Binary Bard surprisingly makes red and green… pop! The cartoon-ish emotion is charming and the coloring and lineart looks super soft! Find his DeviantArt here.

HAPPY NEW YEAR by CraftyPoptropican

CraftyPoptropican - HAPPY NEW YEAR

Continuing our celebratory theme, this piece showcases the colorful nature of the holidays! The dynamic fireworks and fluid posing brings life to the scene and perfectly emphasizes the party!

Happy 2019! by ckrocks12345

ckrocks12345 - Happy 2019

Another unique piece! I’ve always been fond of pixel art, so this drawing is a great one to kick off the new year. The scene is simple, but certainly cool and colorful. It focuses on messing around with art and having fun, exploring and growing your talent. Anyone have any art related resolutions for the new year? Find his DeviantArt here.
