Top 5 Picks
His Universe by pinklasgne
This amazing redesign plays around with colors and blending in a super interesting way! Binary Bard’s “pets” show a unique interpretation of this month’s theme and I am all for it. The sketchy but detailed style heavily focuses on realistic, yet slightly fantastical elements for one eye-catching piece. Stunning composition and color! Find his DeviantArt here.
Ziggy and Fearless Popper by criaha
Precious! This piece is simple but super heartfelt. The cute theme perfectly shows the love between FP and her new feline friend, even showing a bit of movement in the otherwise straightforward pose. Plus, I love how the cat emphasizes the lack of a neck that the Poptropican has. Love it! Find her DeviantArt here.
Black Widow and Her Spider by Quick Fang
How cute! It’s always fun to showcase the softer sides of villains, and this drawing does just that. Even a cold-blooded thief can love a pet with all her heart, right? A spider is definitely an appropriate companion for our infamous artist. Adorable! Find Quick Fang in the comments section.
Pets Dance Party by Poptropica Girl
Haha, cute! View the entire dance party animation here. Though simple movements, the use of animation in this submission is a creative, fun idea. I like the diversity of pets that was showcased and the humor is perfectly cheery. The bright colors portray a very happy, energetic mood! Nice! Find Poptropica Girl in the comments section.
My Pets in Poptropica by Howlarmoon
Interesting! View Howlarmoon’s entire pet collection here. This series of new pets is full of creativity, leaving us to question what other pets we will get to see in Poptropica’s future. The fun facts make each pet a little more personal, and they definitely add humor to the set of submissions. Very cute! Find Howlarmoon in the comments section.
March: 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 March’s theme? March’s theme is…
Poptropica is, of course, a video game, but has it been straying from its roots lately? In a recent post comparing our beloved game to Mocktropica, Slanted Fish explains how Poptropica has seemingly been more focused on aesthetic updates recently rather then feeding us what we’re all here for: stories. Poptropica’s gameplay is largely based on storytelling and quests, of which have been honestly lacking. Sooo, let’s return to those roots!
We all love Poptropica, but many fans aren’t strangers to other games as well! Whether that be MMOs, big-name story games, arcade games, boardgames, you name it… there are games out there for everyone. And yes, battle royals have recently taken the internet by storm, huh? So that leaves you with tons of options! Maybe create costumes in Poptropica for your favorite characters from other franchises? Or draw some sort of crossover between Poptropica and another game? Oh! Maybe write a story that drops your Poptropican in the middle of another virtual universe! I know that you guys can come up with some crazy ideas.
- Comment below with a link to whatever you’ve created OR share it with me (SydVC aka Spotted Dragon) on DeviantArt, Twitter, 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!
