Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the January recap for Community Creations. January’s theme was Arabian Nights, so be sure to check out all the featured artists!
No clue what’s going on? Go see our intro post.
Top 5 Picks
Scheherazade by pinklightningmc
I absolutely love the crisp lines and coloring of this design! Not to mention the wonderful swirly background that really puts a cherry on top of this magical composition. This is a great portrayal of Scheherazade, especially with all those warm pinks! Find their Instagram here.
Careful What You Wish For by Lucky Joker
Now, of course, Scheherazade is not the only genie from Arabian Nights Island. This depiction of Samhal is quite fantastic and the lighting in particular blows me away! The particle effect definite adds a great sense of magic. Find his Instagram here and check out his posts here on the PHB.
A Villain Wish by sleepybiker
Alright, bird man and magic girl look adorable in this art style, don’t you agree? Though the work focuses on Scheherazade and Ringmaster Raven, their plight can really apply to any villain on any island. Pretty hilarious to think about, especially with how ridiculous our Poptropica costumes can be! Find their DeviantArt here.
Scheherazade by Purple Paw
With this more realistic art style, Scheherazade jumps from adorable to gorgeous! I love the warm reds and yellow that were added for lighting because it makes the colors so visually interesting to look at. And the texture of the hair and other colors is quite painterly and loose! Find her on the PHC Dirscord and read her posts here on the PHB.
A Whole New World by Smart Icicle
Stepping away from Scheherazade and Samhal but keeping with our genie theme, this work showcases a neat crossover between Poptropica and Disney’s Aladdin. I love the Poptropica-fied versions of these characters! Plus, there’s great attention to detail in such a small composition. Find their DeviantArt here and her PHB posts here.
No honorable mentions this month, so keep sending things in next time! Super creative work as always from everyone. Hopefully I won’t have to spell out “Scheherazade” again for a while though…
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.
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 February’s theme? February’s theme is…
With the recent re-release of PoptropiCon Episode 2 for members, the Creators are hosting some PoptropiCon challenges encouraging players to make their own superhero costumes and Mighty Action Force cards. So why don’t we join in on that hero hype?
This month, anything comic related is fair game. Make your own superhero costumes, draw your favorite superheroes as Poptropians, you name it. It doesn’t even necessarily have to be superhero themed! Come up with your own Poptropica comic strip, draw characters from the Poptropica Comic series, or even take inspiration from islands like Big Nate. Have fun with it!
- 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!
