Let there be rainbows

gay marriageTo celebrate the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to declares same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states I made this spontaneous update for you:

You can use the rainbow flag as a background image and shirt motif now (in the “stuff” category). Because there is no reason why your SP-Studio avatar should not be able to celebrate as well! :)

Today another update will be online, so keep an eye on this blog.

SP-Studio Christmas Special 2014

The big SP-Studio Christmas Special has started! This means updates every day until Christmas, and like every SP-Studio update I give you all of this for free. Those new clothes, body parts, backgrounds and accessories will be based on the wishes of my visitors. Write your requests in the comments and maybe they will be included. The first new item is a baking sheet full of Christmas cookies. I will update this post with the Advent Calendar every day, so keep an eye on it. The old Christmas Specials: 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013.

Background patterns

SP-Studio background patternsWe have more background colors now! And I started to include background patterns. I hope they will be useful for you if you don’t want to use one of the detailed sceneries. If you want more patterns like this, just tell me about your wishes in the comments.

The new SP-Studio picture contest has started as well, so join it until July 20th :). This month the topic is VACATIONS. Congratulations to the winners of the last contest!

Places: Colosseum & Mount Fuji

It’s time for the last “Places from around the World” update. I included your favorites from the last poll: The Colosseum (Italy) and Mount Fuji (Japan). With 27 % and 22 % of the votes those two places were clear winners. I hope you like those new backgrounds! :)
During the last couple of weeks I was asked a lot to draw more costumes, so that’s what the next update will be about.

Places from around the world

Places: Statue of Liberty & Contest wish

Two new backgrounds were included in the SP-Studio. Your favorite idea was New York’s Statue of Liberty, so here it is! The second image was inspired by the futuristic “Venus Project” and was a wish by contest winner TDC. A new vote has been added to the sidebar based on your requests, so let’s see what the final places-update will look like. I decided to pick countries which were not chosen yet to make it a little bit more interesting. Don’t forget to vote for what I should draw next!

Statue of Liberty & Venus Project

Places: Eiffel tower & Stonehenge

Thanks to everybody who has voted so far! You picked the Statue of Liberty, Stonehenge and the Eiffel tower, so those places will be added to the SP-Studio. I am not finished with the Statue of Liberty yet (don’t worry, it will be included for sure), but here are the other two:

Places from around the world

Of course more famous places from around the world will be added. A new vote with new places will start after the next update. Don’t forget to vote for what I should draw next!

Places: Germany

I wanted to do this in July, but unfortunately I was not able to work on any updates. But now it is time for the month of famous places from around the world! I will draw new background pictures for the SP-Studio, inspired by your favorite places. It can be landmarks or just typical landscapes from different areas of the world. What do you think should be included? You can vote in the sidebar or suggest more places in the comments. There will be another vote later this month with your ideas.

The first update is inspired by my own country, Germany. I picked an important landmark (the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin) and a stereotypical Bavarian landscape ;). Because these might be two things Germany is famous for.

Update: 4 new backgrounds

I finished four new background drawings today, based on the wishes from my visitors. The blue wall is a simple background which will be useful for your family portraits. The shore is inspired by the “Faith+1” cover from South Park. A race track was added for the car fans. And finally you can create SP-Studio mug shots with the new police station wall.

Eleven new dresses and one background! I drew them after original dresses worn by famous actresses at the Oscars. Here is a reference picture in case you want to see where they come from.
I hope you like those new clothes. Many girls asked me for some nicer dresses, and I hope that’s something for you :). I tried my best to draw them as detailed as possible.

Let’s see what the next Hollywood update might bring… it will be online in the next couple of days, so check back for more. And of course I am always happy about some feedback.

SP-Studio Christmas Special 2009

It’s December 1st – and so this year’s Christmas Special can start!
I got so many nice requests that it will be difficult to choose only 24 of them. But I will try my best to draw useful new things, and of course you can still write down your wishes here in the comments. The surprise for the first day is a saxophone, because that’s the music instrument most of my visitors wished for for a long time. I hope you like it! I will update this Advent calendar every day when I add a new item to the SP-Studio, so don’t forget to check it out tomorrow :).

PLEASE remember: NO different body shapes! I have explained so many times, why I will never include this… please stop asking.

Update: Explore new places

I’m less busy now and so I can start drawing SP-Studio updates again. Thanks for your patience – and of course many thanks for your nice comments regarding my upcoming wedding! :)

Today I present you 13 new background images, so you can send your characters to varied places now. I added your favorite wishes, so I hope you enjoy this update and it helps you to be more creative when you build your own characters. Included in the new update are motives of big cities, nature and even space and an under water scene. The new places are marked with white stars.

Backgrounds Update

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).
