atp 2015 art contest

2015 has come and gone, so thus ends our art contest. I hope everyone’s 2016 is even better than the previous year! 😀

Well, I guess we should get right to it, huh? If your a bit confused about the title, check out the art contest we started a while ago. 😉

Without further ado… first place goes to… Treesareredinautum!

2015 - Treesareredinautumn

Wow, this piece was just plain beautiful. The colors and shading really work well together and the detail in each island is amazing. The sunset draws you in and the depiction of Betty Jetty on the rooftop is great. I also took into consideration that this piece was still a work in progress.

Anyway, great job! I will contact you about your prize. 😉

*Ahem* Second place goes to… Maroon Cheetah!

2015 - Maroon Cheetah

Okay, this was just so cute! It’s very simplistic, but still well done. What can I say? I’m a sucker for some chibi art. :mrgreen: Plus, it showed a great celebration of the New Year!

Great job! I will talk to Silver Wolf and one of us will contact you about your prize.

Finally, third place goes to… Ultimate iPad Expert!

2015 - UiPE 1

This may be a graphic and not a drawing, but it’s still great art! The whole point of this site is Adventure Time and Poptropica, right? Well this picture is a great mash-up logo of the two! It’s high quality and overall really well put together.

Great job! I will talk to Silver Wolf and one of us will contact you about your prize.

Okay, so those were the winners, but there were a few other entries that we would like to feature (read the caption for a response on the drawing).

Thank you to everyone who entered! My apologizes to everyone who couldn’t participate or didn’t win. Everyone’s art was amazing! Also, thank you for all the birthday wishes! The ATP’s bday as well as my own. You guys really made the event special. ❤

You already know that it’s Christmas (and other holidays) season, but it’s almost the ATP’s birthday as well! To be specific, our 3rd birthday is on December 30th.

So, in celebration of these events, we are hosting… you guessed it… an art contest! Rules are below.

  2. All entries must have a Poptropica, Adventure Time, or ATP related theme. Bonus points for incorporating the ATP’s birthday, Christmas, New Years, or some other recent holiday in your artwork.
  3. Please send all entries to the ATP’s email, or submit your work on Deviant Art and tag SydVC (Spotted Dragon). We will also be keeping a look out on the We Love Poptropica dA group as best we can. If you submit your entry any other way, please try to contact us because we may not see it.

Out Now: Realms, GHD Extras, & Pop Art

As usual, lots of poping news to catch up on! First up, Poptropica Realms is now out for members!

We will provide more info after we’ve checked it out. 😉

Also, the official Galactic Hot Dogs Island Trailer is now out! We previously only had the teaser to look at.

The island will be popping up on the map for members on January 29 and on February 19 for nonmembers. However, the Creators to want to mention that these dates may change.

Besides the new trailer, GHD has a new paper craft as well! It is the Neon Wiener spaceship paper craft.

You can find and print out your own on the island’s Tour Page, or in the Poptropica Store.

In other news, the Creators’ Blog has been a little modified. Not much, but it now matches Poptropica’s updated look.

Talking about new designs, HP recently discovered some more behind the scenes artwork from one of Poptropica’s graphic designers. Specifically, Chris Goodwin’s portfolio. His Poptropica related sections include Scene Illustration, Character Design, and Concept Art. Of course, we’ve also mentioned Nate Greenwall’s portfolio before too. 🙂

Lastly, I would like to give a shout-out to Pixel (Nice Dragon), who completed Early Poptropica Island 1000 times! Now that’s impressive! 😀

Shrink Ray Guide & PAw Tribute

shrink ray

Hey guys! I had some spare time on my hands and managed to make a Shrink Ray Island guide! It was one of the few islands we didn’t have I guide for yet. For other guides, click here. If you notice that we don’t have a guide, feel free to write one for us! Just send it to the ATP’s email and be sure to include pictures. 😉

Also, remember how Poptropica creator Dr. Lange created a tribute for the PHB? Well she also made a tribute for Poptropican Awesomeness! It’s pretty awesome.

Maybe Dr. Lange will create a tribute for the ATP? I really hope so! Spread the word! 😛

Happy Holidays! Realms, Selfies, Comics, & More

Happy holidays from the ATP! It’s been an awesome year and you guys just make it better! 😀

Of course, the Creators want to give us a happy holiday too!

Hehehe, I love the GHD ship in the background.

Dr. Lange also felt the need to make a tribute to the PHB. It’s pretty impressive, so you might want to check it out!

Anyway, we also have some behind the scenes images to share. First up, “a paused project….

bts comic

Well, it looks like a comic to promote an island, such as the Virus Hunter: Pandemic Panic series. For what island, I’m not sure.

Next up, a sneak peek that seems to be for the Poptropica Comic Island.

poptropica realmsThe red lines seem to be the platforms that we can walk on.

The Creators also shared this Poptropica Realms sneak peek (on the right).

“Just grabbed from a Poptropica Creator’s computer when she snuck out to do some shopping.”

I personally can’t wait for Poptropica Realms! 😛

Lastly, The Creators wanted to share six Poptropica selfies of 2014.

Cute. 😛 That’s it for now! Happy holidays everyone!

Stubb’s Art, PopStorm, & GHD Sneak Peek

Hey Poptropicans! Just a few Twitter updates to cover. 😛

First up! Do you remember Stubb, from SOS Island? She was found in the Boiler Room and was a very hard worker. Well, a Poptropica Illustrator created some back story for her! In the form of a picture of course.

Along with that, the fifth Pop Storm is out! This one is entitled Menacing Mouths.

Interesting… Anyway, the next tweet refers to Galactic Hotdogs. However, it’s not the usual GHD update… In fact, the Creators claim that it is “VERY, VERY behind the scenes.”

Do we have a new island upon us??? Hmmm??? Plus, it links to the video below.

Yeah, I’m kinda getting a new island vibe. Especially since the Creators mentioned that GHD may become an island in the future.

There is another behind the scenes image on Twitter, but this doesn’t reveal much. It shows “tools being built for more refined character animations in Poptropica’s videos.”

Hey, still pretty cool. 😉

I also want to mention that the Creators have been sharing a lot of Poptropica related Instagram posts lately, along with Poptropica-In-School moments, Poptropica related Tumbr posts, and more. We probably won’t be updating you guys on all of those, but you can always go to Twitter to see them.
