Art: The penultimate step in the animation process

Steamworks plant monster art
After settling on a sketch we liked, it was time for to give a little more life to the plant monster that will be menacing players on Steamworks Island.

Below are two approaches to the plant monster. Can you spot the differences between them?

Little details, like the color of the planter, and big ones, like the plant's eye, can make a big difference in the monster's appearance.

The next step: animation test!


I think that now, once the plants have some bright colors, that they're kind of cute. 8-) LOL I can't wait to see how they are used in the island!


  1. Hey guys! If any of you are wondering about the title, I used the word "penultimate", meaning "next to last". I love Lemony Snicket books, so that's where I get my fancy words.

  2. do you think poptropica is going to add new followers bot with dogs and cats. I got the Idea at 24 carrot when you need to deliver the cat to the owner. the cat follows you.

  3. That's a good question. And also a good idea. Too bad the PCB doesn't allow you to post comments.
