Update: History

SP-Studio hair updateThe SP-Studio got some new historical items! All of these originated in the Twitch livestreams I did during the last two weeks. Thanks to the chat for the feedback and ideas! The update comes with eight items:

  • a background with greek columns
  • musketeer costume (a fitting red hat was already there)
  • wig in Marie Antoinette style
  • Thracian gladiator helmet
  • single pencil mustache
  • crakows as new shoes
  • Two pharao insignia

Update: Winter fashion

Your characters won’t have to freeze anymore: This new content update adds more casual winter fashion to the SP-Studio! I had several ideas for possible updates and again asked my 5$+ Patreon supporters to pick one of them. This is new:

  • three short winter jackets
  • a long, pink coat
  • a classic yellow raincoat
  • a black turtleneck sweater
  • two knit caps

Regarding the SP-Studio remake it will take a lot of time until I can actually show something. But as soon as I am sure which features we will be able to include I will write a blog post about it. Thanks a lot to everybody who has supported the funding of the SP-Studio remake so far on Patreon or with a Paypal donation!

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

Super Mario tribute

Super Mario tributeAfter the Disney Princesses and Star Wars these are the final costumes in a row of pop culture inspired SP-Studio updates. When it comes to iconic video game characters nobody can compete with Super Mario. So I drew this tribute to Mario and Luigi. My Patrons voted for the Nintendo characters they wanted to see. And check out the Princess Peach dress and hair as well, which was already included a while back.

The new items are:

  • Mario’s and Luigi’s hats
  • Luigi’s beard (Mario’s was already included)
  • overall in custom colors
  • a new nose in custom colors

I fixed some bugs as well: The U.S. flag works again and some noses were moved.

Three new items

Flamethrower guyA mixed update is online with two contest wishes and one idea by a fan that I really liked (the hat). I hope to find the time for another update next week.

  • flamethrower
  • military jacket (as worn by Jimi Hendrix)
  • propeller hat

And don’t forget to join the current SP-Studio contest about ROBOTS until tomorrow evening. Register a nickname, upload your SP-Studio picture and maybe you win a free wish for an update of your choice.

Feathers and curtains

Mixed SP-Studio updateI got a new mouse after my old one was broken, so it’s update time again! Finally I was able to finish this mixed update with wishes from SP-Studio fans:

  • sword on the back (contest wish)
  • Fullmetal Alchemist uniform (contest wish)
  • red curtains as a new foreground
  • native American feathered headdress

contestIf you want to win the chance to have your wish included in the SP-Studio join the monthy picture contests. The current topic is LITERATURE and you can submit your picture until April 20th. The winner is chosen by vote. You can join the contest here, and here you can read more about how it works.

Pharaoh costume

SP-Studio update: Egyptian PharaohToday’s update is inspired by history:

With the new hat, beard and jewelry you can dress up your SP-Studio characters as an Egyptian Pharaoh. You can even rebuild the famous death mask of Tutankhamun by seletcing a golden skin tone.

And another classic costume is already in the making, so it will be online in time before Halloween :).

Update: Metroid & HALO… and a vote

blog_version4.09_03After some Sony related videogame items my new update is based on the two biggest Action heroes from Nintendo and Microsoft: Samus Aran (Metroid) and Master Chief (HALO)!
It took me a while to draw those detailed costumes, but now their iconic body armor and helmets can be found in the SP-Studio and I hope you like them.

There will be one more “videogame costume update” in about a week, but this time you decide what I should draw. Cast your vote in the sidebar!

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:

Advent Calendar

The first item is a teapot, let’s see what the next days will bring. You can comment here to make suggestions and of course I am always happy about feedback. I hope you enjoy my updates and have a great time with this Advent Calendar!

Update: Hat improvements

This SP-Studio update might seem small, but it took me some time and needed to be done. Some of those things were on my list for a very long time. I fixed the “hats” category:

  • Nearly every hat with custom colors can use the whole palette now (100 colors).
  • This did not work for the first 5 hats, because they are more colorful. But I added new styles for them.
  • I added the option to flip more hats. Every hat where it makes sense should be flipable now.
  • Fixed an old error with the Football helmet and Professor Chaos mask.

Update: A bunch of hats

Seven fashionable new hats are waiting for you! Bowler, tophead, shower / surgeon cap, New Era cap, women’s hat from the 20s, black hat with a veil and golden hair decorations. And I forgot to mention a small update from earlier this month: Three “freestyle collection” shirts.

Wish Voting Updates

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

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

Hollywood Weeks: More Movie Outfits

SP-Studio Hollywood Weeks

The final “Hollywood Weeks” update is online! I drew 17 new items, inspired by 9 famous movies:

Hollywood Weeks UpdateThe big Lebowski: Walter’s clothes
Bruce Lee / Kill Bill: shirt and pants
Cleopatra: makeup, dress and haircut
Frankenstein: screws and haircut
The Mask: hat with optional feather
Star Trek: shirt symbol and hands
Star Wars: hood
Stephen King’s It: clown costume
Titanic: Rose’s dress and necklace
…and an Oscar to hold in your hand and pretend to be a famous superstar :)

Many of those items have mutiple colors and I hope they are useful for you. I picked things which can be used in many ways (that’s why there is no Darth Vader mask, it would be boring ;)). Most of them are based on your wishes.

So that’s it – the SP-Studio Hollywood Weeks are over! 50 new items. Now I will take a little break. But if you still need more movie stuff join the SP-Studio community. Voting for the current contest “Sci-Fi movies” starts tonight.
And of course I am looking forward to your feedback. Did you like the movie related updates?

2 new items + 2 new languages

UpdateTime for a little update: Two new items were included today! Caribou, winner of the “What happened in 2010?” contest, requested the helmet. SoxKid, winner of the “Pokemon” contest, the haircut.

And finally two new languages were added for the instructions too: Russian and Spanish. I cannot offer a complete translation of the whole SP-Studio, but I hope this helps some of my visitors. Thanks a lot to my anonymous translators!

Work on the next bigger update is nearly finished… :)

SP-Studio Christmas Special 2010

This year’s Christmas Special has started! Each day until Christmas I will draw one new SP-Studio item. They are based on your wishes so write your requests in the comments or use the Wish Voting area in the SP-Studio Community. But please rerember the few things I cannot include (read about them here). I hope you enjoy the surprises. Let’s have a look at the Advent Calendar which will be updatet every day. The first new item is already there: a nice hat for cold winter days.

Advent Calendar

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 :).

Advent Calendar

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

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).
