No clue what’s going on? Go see our intro post.
Top 5 Picks
Slanted Fish by POP-whitewolf
Beautiful! The soft, but detailed coloring and shading makes this piece look marvelous. The sketchy background reminds me a lot the PHB’s very own wallpaper, as well as the styles incorporated into our headers! The brush strokes are smooth and I absolutely love the giant fish. Hopefully it’s a plushie? Anyway, Fishy looks fantastic! Find her DeviantArt here.
Spotted Dragon by Allisnn
Am I biased in choosing this one? Maybe just a little, but can you really blame me? Either way, this drawing is also amazing! Again, very soft coloring and smooth strokes. The freckles in particular look really realistic. I love this so much, and I’m always honored to have SD drawn! If only I could make eyeliner and eyebrows look that good. Find her DeviantArt here.
#1 Fan by Creepingbear11
Cute! The Poptropica Community relies heavily on fan-art, so of course there are going to be talented artists that have big fans. In this piece, Poptropican Happy Stomper is Bashful Sword’s (BlazingAngel123 on DeviantArt) #1 fan! This was a totally cool, unique submission that stood out to me. Plus, I love the thin, kinda sketchy style (that can especially be seen in the hair and arms)! Where can I buy that shirt for myself? Find their DeviantArt here.
Blue Carpet Vlog by Fierce Flyer
With July comes the Poppies, and with the Poppies comes fancy outfits! In this drawing, I love the inclusion of the blue carpet. The Poppies isn’t your average red carpet event, ya know! Additionally, the composition definitely stands out. The perspective of a vlogger is unique and adds a bunch of interest in the design! I mean, the Poppies do come with a livestream after all. The coloring, lighting, and overall piece is super cute. Find his DeviantArt here, and check out his posts right here on the PHB! No worries, I’m the only author that picks the art that’s featured. 😉
Getting Ready for the Poppies by xXLilAngel2004Xx
Adorable! This piece is just the first part of a 4 part series of drawings showing off dazzling Poppies outfits. I like this one in particular because of how well each part of the outfit corresponds with one another, even the hair! Additionally, this style is just pretty darn cute. Reminds me of the Powerpuff Girls a bit! Can your fancy Poppies attire beat this? Find her DeviantArt here.
Brave Tomato and a ‘Fan’ by MoodyTuna
Gentle Dolphin Banner by JordynGowens aka Gentle Dolphin
G at the Poppies by CuddlyBrain
Submissions, as always, were wonderful! (I always love some good PHB fanart… 😉 ) Thanks to everyone who sent something in. I’m excited for next month!
Gentle Dolphin by JordynGowens aka Gentle Dolphin
Spotted Dragon by JordynGowens aka Gentle Dolphin
Creepy Goose by JordynGowens aka Gentle Dolphin
Cuddly Knuckle by JordynGowens aka Gentle Dolphin
I also wanted to feature these requests that Gentle Dolphin made during the Poppies! It was a cool way to show off some of the amazing outfits that Poptropicans attended the event in. Look! There’s even a drawing of me! 😀
August: 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, Worlds houses, 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 August’s theme? August’s theme is…
August marks the start of school for many kids, and with school of course comes some core subjects. One of which is generally science! I don’t wanna bore you to death with this one, but science can actually be pretty cool. Not only am I looking for straight up scientific pieces this month, but sci-fi ones as well!
So what are some examples of things can you submit? They’re endless! Write a story of traveling through the body in Virus Hunter Island, draw some chemistry themed Dr. Hare fanart, or maybe make the most science-y costume in Poptropica you possibly can! Whatever you create is up to you.
- Submitting: 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!
