Christmas Special 2017

The 10th annual Christmas Special has started! Wow, I am doing this thing for 10 years now… But for those of you who don’t know it yet: I will surprise you with 24 daily updates until Christmas. This means new clothes, hairstyles, backgrounds or any other item for the SP-Studio. This blog post and the front page will be updatet every day and I will keep you informed on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as well. So make sure to come back to see what’s new. :) And of course I am happy about any feedback. To be honest a comment is way better than a like because it’s something personal and I can work with it. So if you like an update or want to request something special for the future – feel free to write a comment! I usually choose the updates from requests of the past, the Wish Voting Gallery in the forum and my own ideas. The first update is a pet raven and this was a wish by contest winner legobasher.

The old Christmas Specials can be found here: 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016.
What were your favorite updates from 10 years?

SP-Studio Advent Calendar

Animal month: Forest Animals

South Park animalsFor the third animal related update I included parts of some local forest animals. Most of them were wishes by SP-Studio fans:

  • mouse ears
  • mouse tail
  • squirrel tail
  • bird beak (also good for dragons)
  • belly shape, useful for different animals
  • the old wings have custom colors now as well

Animal month: Safari!

South Park animalsThe second “animal month” SP-Studio update includes 8 new body parts inspired by African animals. You can use them to create zebras, cheetahs, elephants… but they are useful for other animal characters as well, like tigers or walruses. Those are the new items:

  • stripes & points for the skin
  • paws as hands
  • trunk as a nose
  • cat mouth & elephant mouth with tusks
  • cat ears & elephant ears

Which animal parts do you want to see in the upcoming updates for this month?

My Little Pony invasion

MLP:FIM goes South ParkI want to dedicate a whole month of SP-Studio updates to animals, so let’s start with a very popular species: The pony! I included 11 new items inspired by the cartoon My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, developed by Lauren Faust.

  • Hooves as hands, a pony nose, a unicorn horn, wings and pony ears.
  • 2 tails and 4 hairstyles inspired by main characters of the show.

And as a special bonus: A wallpaper!
I hope this little tribute is a nice addition for all bronies out there and will be useful for other types of animal characters as well. I designed the hair so you can even use it for human characters. You might wonder why there are no unique details like the cutie marks or colorful highlights in the hair. This is because I did not want to just copy one existing pony but rather find interesting parts for creative use. Special thanks to Twilight Sparkle, Fluttershy, Rarity and Pinkie Pie who posed as models :).

Update: This and that

  • Today I included a confirmation prompt to avoid the deleting of pictures by accident. If you click on the delete button now the picture does not disappear immediately, but you are asked if you really want to do this.
  • The horse is now availible in many different colors (stuff > animals).
  • A wish by contest winner Till: A spiderweb was added (stuff > averything else).

July will be dedicated to new background pictures for the SP-Studio, and there will be a vote for your suggestions, so make sure to have a look then :).

SP-Studio Christmas Special 2012

This is the fifth annual Christmas Special! From December 1 until December 24 a new SP-Studio object will be revealed every day. Hair-styles, bodyparts, clothes, toys, background pictures… 24 surprises! So keep an eye on the Advent Calendar to be up to date:

Update: Happy Halloween!

Halloween UpdateWelcome to the SP-Studio Halloween Update!
I felt like drawing some creepy new items for this holiday. Like many other videogamers out there I am waiting for the final episode of Telltale’s amazing “The walking Dead” game right now, so this update is focused on zombies:

  • A bat
  • Intestines
  • rotten teeth
  • Ripped out eye
  • Messy short hair
  • Tattered shirt
  • …aaand candy!

Huge Anniversary Update!

Anniversary UpdateNew items for every category! To celebrate the 10th anniversary of this website I prepared an extra huge SP-Studio update. 22 new clothes, hair-styles, fashion accessories and body parts are waiting for you. And because it is the release date of Diablo 3 today some objects are inspired by the Lord of Terror himself. I hope you enjoy the update! :)

And please remember: If you want to support the SP-Studio and help it stay alive for another decade every little donation is welcome. Thanks a lot to everybody who already helped me to keep this project going!

Wish Voting Weeks: Choose new items!

I’ve got new SP-Studio stuff for you! This time there is no special topic and no limitation to a certain category. In the upcoming weeks there will be several updates with all kind of items. What do they have in common? They are all based on wish voting wishes of my visitors. YOU can make suggestions and vote for what you want to see in the SP-Studio.

If you already are a member of the SP-Studio community, you know how “Wish voting” works. But let’s describe it for the newbies: Click on “community” and register a nickname. Don’t worry, it’s for free of course. Then you can suggest new items for the SP-Studio by uploading pictures of clothes, hair styles or whatever you think would be useful. The other members rate your wish (1-5 stars) and can write comments. Please use the search before you upload something, because there might be a similar wish already. I will choose some of the best rated wishes and edit this entry whenever I add new things to the SP-Studio. Of course they will be announced on the front page of sp-studio.de too, so you won’t miss anything. If you want to know first if new objects are online follow me on Twitter or Facebook.

First update, 7.7.2011:
Wish Voting Update

  • shirt with cut off sleeves (dassenasse’s wish)
  • tears in eyes (SnowyBowser’s wish)
  • fishnet stockings (jellyfish’s wish)
  • ball & chain leg cuff (ViralMonster’s wish)
  • panda hat (SnowyBowser’s wish)

Let’s see what other updates you will choose, I hope you will enjoy the wish voting weeks!

  • choose between 100 colors now for hair, skin and many objects

Additionaly an Italian translation of the help text was added. Thanks to Mark Meilak! If you want to translate this text for your own language too, I would be happy to include it.

I hope you like this mixed update and there is something for everybody. As you might have noticed some of the new objects were chosen because they were suggested in the community wish voting and got good reatings. So if you have a request – post it there and maybe you’re lucky as well! The wished which are included were moved to the archives now and the votes are reset. Let’s see what will be chosen for the next update.

Update: The pets arrived

Pets UpdateNow have a look at the SP-Studio, click on “stuff” and you will find a new category there: animals! Cats and dogs are the most common pets, so I drew them in different colors and patterns to make it easier for you to recreate your own pets. Of course you can move every single one of them to the place you like by clicking on them and using the little menu which appears. It’s works the same way like with the others items.

When I created the new category for the animals I added another one: “fashion accessories”. There are no new items in it, I just wanted to organize the whole stuff in a better way.

SP-Studio Christmas Special 2008

The first big SP-Studio Christmas Special starts today!
I will draw one new item every day till Christmas, and you can send me your wishes. The first new part is a classic Christmas scene as a background. Many wished for that and I think it’s a good way to help you design your own Christmas cards. But what will be next…? Have fun with the 24 updates and keep checking back for what surprises the next days will bring!

By the way, I was overwhelmed by the number of e-mails I got. More than 2.000 wishes were sent in until now for this Christmas Special, and yes, I read every single one of them. It’s very hard to choose 24 items to draw, so please do not be sad if your request isn’t picked. I have already decided to work on special themed updates in January to add more of your great ideas. So keep on wishing :). By the way: I have fixed some small errors as well (layer problems with the masks, bracelets, ties and text tool).
