Update: more objects

SP-Studio update: objects73 items have been added to the “more objects” category!

How about two new mobile phones as a bonus? A retro phone and a modern one were added. And with this update nearly all old items from this category are back. Some seasonal items will be added later, because I could not handle more in one week. Of course I improved all drawings and added custom colors.

And a little reminder: The voting phase for the current picture contest starts in a couple of hours.

Musical instruments

Update: Music complete

SP-Studio update: long arm shirts42 items have been added to the “music” objects!

This category is complete now. All items from the old SP-Studio are back in improved form and with recolor options. The guitars got new strings and you will find complete redrawings as well: The classic 80s walkman and the hand microphone. Two new surprise items are earphones without a visible device (your phone might be in your pocket) and wireless earphones (EarPods). I hope you enjoy this update! 🙂

Update: Special shirts

SP-Studio update: special shirts12 items have been added to the special shirts!

This category is for all the historical clothes, unique costumes and regional outfits. Unfortunately I am very busy with work right now and so I have little time for the SP-Studio. Work comes first, even though I’d love to work on the SP-Studio full time. This is why this update is a bit smaller than the last ones. But I will continue to upload an update every Sunday until all the old items are back! It will take as long as it needs.

In other news: A new SP-STUDIO PICTURE CONTEST has started! Join it until February 20th. The topic of the month is “billionaires”.

Update: shirts (long sleeves)

SP-Studio update: long arm shirts40 items have been added to the regular shirts with long sleeves!

This category is complete now. I improved many drawings, you can recolor them – and as a bonus I added three new open jackets. Since you can combine any items with the new SP-Studio it makes sense to give you more open jackets to combine with any shirt you want.

Because some visitors did not notice or understand the new lock feature I added an info box about combining items. Remember you have to add the bottom shirt first, then lock it and then add the jacket.

Update: tools & weapons complete

SP-Studio update: tolls & weapons72 items have been added to the “objects / tools & wepaons” category!

This category was missed by many SP-Studio fans, so I am happy to bring it back. The drawings for all items were improved and custom colors were added. And there are some surprises! The longsword can now be used in the hands. And I added four completely new drawings:

  • a new realistic looking pistol
  • a new regular shield
  • a better katana
  • a better chainsaw
SP-Studio update: hats

Update: Hats complete

SP-Studio update: hats61 items have been added to the “accessories/hats” category!

My plan is to release an update every weekend until all the old items are back. This time I focused on the hats. The category is now complete, all drawings were improved and recolor options were added were it makes sense. But I don’t want to risk boring you with just old items – so with every of these weekly update you can expect at least one new item as a little surprise. This time it’s pretty useful: A hoodie hood! The excisting hood was more suitable for robes so I decided to give you something more casual for your characters to wear. You can combine it with a shirt of your choice and of course recolor it.
And a bit later Lars added an update with improved loading times and some pretty placeholders!

SP-Studio update: skin & places

Update: new skin & old places

SP-Studio update: skin & placesHappy new year! After the successful relaunch and your positive feedback I am super motivated to include more items. So let’s start with this huge update:

  • 24 NEW skin related items (more freckles, beauty marks, wounds, scars, body hair, tears…)
  • 31 places from the old SP-Studio are back, so this category is now complete
  • labels for the buttons to recolor items were added by Lars to avoid confusion

The skin items are a special gift to my Patreon supporters. They can be found in the “wounds” and “more skin related items” categories and are marked with yellow stars. Soon you can expect more updates to bring back items from the old SP-Studio – and join the new picture contest!

The new SP-Studio is here!

It’s finally here! Three years of preparations by optimizing all my drawings, three months of developing by Lars and now I am proud and happy to present you the new SP-Studio we have worked on so hard. No Flash is required anymore and it will run in every browser – so go ahead and give it a try! 🙂 I would love to read your feedback in the comments. You can still visit the old Flash versions here. If you want to use the mobile version just visit the website, no app store is required. The offline version I announced is not working though – please stay online for now. You will find many new items as well, but I let you discover them for yourselves. And finally I want to thank everybody who supported me during these years – with your donations, your knowledge and your kind words. Your help made this possible!

The amazing new LOCK function

The amazing new LOCK functionThe new SP-Studio comes with a poweful feature that has not been a part of the old version. It’s worth exploring, because I know you will love it: The new LOCK button!
This button in the item menu lets you lock / unlock any item. While usually items in one category automatically replace each other a locked item is not replaced anymore. If you select something else from the same category it will be placed in addition to the first item. If they share the same space on the stage they will stack on top of each other. Here are some examples of the possibilities this new function offers:

Launch day: December 21st!

Launch day: December 21st!Important announcement: This is the release date of the new SP-Studio!
DECEMBER 21st 2020
During today’s Twitch livestream I also showed a preview version (work in progress) of the desktop layout with its optimized user interface. On big screens the new SP-Studio will use the available space better to let you see more thumbnails without scrolling. The stage will be bigger as well, making it easier to edit your picture. The main category icons are always in view in the top menu bar and a second bar with tabs opens for the subcategories. Of course everything runs directly in your browser, like the mobile version. Lars does a great job in optimzing the design for different screen sizes, and I am looking forward to sharing the final version with all of you.
