2015 Art Contest Winners

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. ❤

atp 2015 art contest

What’s popping adventurers? How was your holiday?

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.

  1. The contest starts now and will end on January 13th (SD’s birthday btw 😉 ). -It will now end Monday, January 18th-
  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.
  4. Everyone’s art will be shown in a post, but the winner will receive artwork of the entire ATP team with the winner, made by Spotted Dragon. 2nd and 3rd place will receive an icon of their Poptropican made by Silver Wolf. Details will be discussed through the winners’ emails.

Well, there ya have it! Feel free to post any questions about the contest in the comments section below and good luck to everyone that enters! 😀


Arabian Nights 3: Out now for Everyone!

Yep, the title says it all… Arabian Nights Episode 3: Careful What You Wish For is now available for everyone to play!

Be sure to check out the World Champion Map to see who has already finished the quest.

I won’t spoil anything yet, but I have to say that this island has some awesome twists and turns!

Artwork - Small Packages

My Arabian Nights inspired artwork

Good luck for those of you getting ready to complete the adventure! 😀


Proud to be Silly, Brave, and Spotted

I know it’s been a while (and by that I mean a really long time), but I have finally caught up in all of my portrait requests! 🙂

Art - Proud to be Silly Sword

Art - Proud to be Brave Sky

Art - Proud to be Spotted Monster


So – Silly Sword, Brave Sky, and Spotted Monster – I hope you like your portraits! I used the costumes you were wearing at the time you asked for them to be made. 😉



What Time Is It?

Time to guess these characters! This is totally going to challenge your knowledge of adventures.
















Wow, that’s a lot of characters. I have my guesses, do you have yours? Well post them in the comments!

In other mathematical news, there is a new game in the Cartoon Network world! You can now play CN’s new game called Superstar Soccer! Click here for more information.

But let’s get even more awesome for a sec. Rap Bear isn’t the only one with mad musical skills! Cartoon Network and all the AT characters got to drop a beat in a cool new music video/remix! Check it out!

To be honest, it was a lot better than I thought it was going to be! 🙂

Now, we can’t get more rhombus than this, right? Wrong. CN is bustin’ out a new DVD that is totally *click-click*. It includes 16 cool episodes.

Just to be clear, it doesn’t have a complete season. It is only 16 episodes.

Wow, okay. I don’t know about you, but all this talking (or typing, whatever) has made me thirsty. Why not chill with 7 refreshing drinks from the Land of Ooo? CN has some suggestions…

Bug Milk
Whether you’re trying to summon a demon from the Nightosphere or you just want to keep your exoskeleton healthy, bug milk is the way to go.

Honey Energy Drink
Is your life a nonstop party? Do you need a little extra oomph on the dance floor? Pour yourself a tall glass of honey energy drink. It’s guaranteed to give you an extra shot of swagger. Hey, it works for the Party Bears!

Grass Shake
Get your recommended daily does of vitamin Awesome with this totally off the hook party shake! It’s guaranteed to chlorophyll you up!

Stone-Skin Potion
Sure, it’ll cover your bod in a layer of jagged rock armor, but it’s also got a grape-tastic flavor that can’t be beat! Yum.

Sparkling Apple Cider
Whatever you do, don’t shake it! It might explode… but it probably won’t.

River of Forgetfulness
There’s something we were supposed to remember about this water, but we can’t quite think of it. It’s probably fine. Drink up!

Dweeb Cup
A potent mix of soda, coffee grounds, beetle butter, grape jelly, kimchi, and ham chunk juice. It doesn’t matter if you’re a dweeb or a cool guy, it’s going to taste just as nasty.

Well, some of those sound pretty tasty, but some of them sound kinda dangerous. Choose wisely my friends…

For a final ounce of awesome from the creator of our beloved show himself, Pendleton Ward, here is a cute drawing he made of himself, AT style.

This might not be in an episode any time soon, but it will appear in the April 28, 2014 issue of TIME! How cool is that? 😀 

Don’t forget to keep checking the ATP for more adventurous updates. 😉


Proud to be Fruit Bat

I have finished my next portrait!

Fan Art - Poptropica - Proud to be Fruit Bat - Spotted Dragon

Hope you like it! FB didn’t know what he wanted to be proud of. I thought “theorist” would suit him well, since he writes theories for TNPT. 🙂

Anyone else want a portrait made? Ask! I’m happy to make them!


Even More Digital Art

Okay, so I usually don’t create digital art, I usually create hand-drawn art. However, digital art seems to be popular right now, so of course (being an artist) I had to at least take a shot at it. Now, before you see my possibly cool creation, note that I don’t have a drawing tablet. I made this with my mouse. 😛

Fan Art - Poptropica - Spotted Dragon - Spotted Dragon

Some of you might be wondering “Are you taking requests?” The answer is yes. Yes I am. If you want me to make a portrait of your Poptropican, just ask in the comments! Be sure to give me your username/some picture of your Poptropican, your name, and what you want to be proud of (remember, what your proud of is usually something unique). If you want me to chose what your proud of (I would probably have to know you well), please do not get offended by what I chose. If it sounds mean, I’m sorry because it’s something you should be proud of! 😉

Anyway, do you like it? 🙂


P.S. I’m working on two art series that I’m hoping to finish soon, but it’s been taking a while. Can you guess what they are? One is relating to Poptropica villains and one is related to Adventure Time.

Your Choice

Sup everyone! I wanted to get your opinion on a couple of things. First of all, when things should be released. All of them will be released some time, but which one do you want to come out first?


Okay! Now, what would you like to see more of in upcoming episodes of SD & HB? Please answer this, even if you don’t want SD & HB to come out first (from the poll above). Don’t forget the Other option. In this option, you can also list multiple choices.


Now, in the Spotted Show (even if you didn’t choose it in the first poll) what to you want? I thought you guys would have better ideas than mine to make the show a bit more interesting.


I think that’s it. If I’m forgetting anything, I’ll try to edit it into this post later, so check back often. 😉
