Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the May recap for Community Creations! This month’s theme was fairy tales and myths. The featured work is not in any particular order. Be sure to check out all the featured artists! 😉

No clue what’s going on? Go see our intro post.

Top 5 Picks

Fierce Flyer and the Dragon by Fierce Flyer

Fierce Flyer - Fierce Flyer and the Dragon

Bright colors evoke a great sense of adventure in this piece! Bringing to mind the dangers we all faced in islands like Astro-Knights, this drawing brings those emotions to life through this exciting scene. With all these bold colors, the rest of this epic adventure is left up to the imagination! Plus, don’t we all love spotted dragons? Perfect for our myth theme! Find his DeviantArt here.

Ghost Story by GoldenFox2019

GoldenFox2019 - Ghost Story

A beautiful, dark piece featuring the thrilling Ghost Story Island. The mist effects are wonderful and the glowing violin really draws in the viewer’s attention. I think Ghost Story Island holds a place in all of our hearts and it most certainly includes compelling myth elements. *Cue flashbacks of the “Are you looking for someone?” jump-scare* Find her DeviantArt here.

 Hulder by Lil’ Poptrystal (Elise)

LilPoptrystalTemp (Elise) - Hulder

A unique combination of traditional and digital art has a great impact on this drawing. It also combines Poptropica with a lesser known mythological creature called a hulder. They are beautiful women who use their captivating singing voices to lure men into caves. You learn something new everyday, right? The piece’s spooky effects and fun portrayal of Twisted Thicket Island is breath-taking  (just like the hulder herself). Find her DeviantArt here.

Hanging Around for a Bit by IceSquared

IceSquared - Hanging Around for a Bit

Inspired by Early Poptropica, this cute play on the classic fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk is hilarious. The simple colors and composition of the objects give off a great storybook vibe and even provide the impression of a book cover. Just wait until he gets to see that purple giant! The cartoon-ish design easily depicts a fun setting and tone. Find his DeviantArt here.

Mysteries, Myths, and Legends by Sporty Boa

Sporty Boa - Mysteries, Myths, and Legends

Covering pretty much all of our theme’s bases, this drawing includes your classic knight, a big name from Greek mythology of course, and even the Elf Queen herself. All three of which are prominent in the world of Poptropica! Simplistic in design it may be, but it does prove how wide Poptropica’s storytelling can reach. Well made! Find his Twitter here.

Honorable Mentions

Super cool submissions like always guys! You make it hard to pick features every time. I love that I’m seeing a lot of regulars participate every month, but the more people the better! Can’t let the same people take the glory every month. 😉

June: 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-fic, realms, 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 June’s theme? Junes’s theme is…

Poptropica Worlds!

Upon its recent release, Poptropica Worlds has sparked a lot of different reactions and opinions. Though most of us are still getting used to all the changes, that doesn’t mean we can’t use this even to spark artistic inspiration as well!

Draw some beautiful Crisis Caverns scenes, design a new outfit for your newly-styled Poptropican, show off how you decorated your house, and that’s just to name a few ideas! Remember that written work is also accepted, so come up with some creative ways to express your ideas on this big change!

Remember that you can submit not only drawings, but literature, costumes, etc. as well. And the more detail/backstory, the better! 😉

  • 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! 😀
