64 new wish voting wishes

SP-Studio contest64 new wishes have been added to the gallery! Comment on them in the WISH VOTING GALLERY to let me know which I should draw for the SP-Studio.

If you are new to this let me explain how it works. All ideas in the wish voting gallery were suggested by SP-Studio fans and you can filter them by category. If you want to request a new item just upload a reference picture. During the last month I received over 600 emails with wishes – which was a record. Many of them were spam (please don’t do this). Some were not very useful or not possible to include for technical reasons. But I looked through all of them to pick the best, and there were really great ideas. Those are now included and might appear in future updates. Show them some love by discussing your favourites in the gallery!

Update: Creepy places

SP-Studio Update: Creepy placesDiscover two creepy indoor places inspired by modern horror phenomena!

Liminal spaces / the backrooms have become a huge topic among fans of internet horror and lead to a great series of short films by Kane Pixels. It’s an aesthetic which shows empty places which feel surreal and creepy because of the lack of life, their architecture and lighting. Because several SP-Studio fans have requested a background like this, I have now drawn one.

The second new indoor place is an office inspired by the popular Five Nights at Freddy’s video game franchise. But you can also use it as a detective’s office or for other purposes, because I didn’t want to limit it to just be useful for this one fandom. I hope you like the new places!

New picture contest: Disney

SP-Studio contestCongratulations to IRATEOTD for winning the March contest with a picture of Monika from Doki Doki Literature Club! You can find all winners in the Hall of Fame and it’s always worth a look.

Since we have many new visitors I want to introduce you to the monthly SP-Studio picture contests. They always have a special topic and for April it’s ANIMATED DISNEY CHARACTERS. Create a SP-Studio picture about a character from a Disney cartoon or animated movie. These contests are just for fun and meant to be a creative challenge about who uses the SP-Studio in the most skillful way. I changed to a new tool lately and it is very easy to use. You can submit pictures until April 20th and then a public vote starts. Give it a try! 🙂

Update: Multicolor hair

SP-Studio Update: Multicolor hairThere are six new hairstyles that allow you to select a second color!

This has been requested many times and so I hope you like this new feature. The multicolor hairstyles are easily recognizable by their pink color. Of course, you can also use them with only a single color by selecting the same color twice.

For the first multicolor hairstyles I have drawn your requests from the Wish Voting Gallery and Patreon. But more will follow in future updates. Write in the comments for which existing hairstyles you would like to see colored highlights. You can see the name of a hairstyle when you click on it.

Huge rise in visitor numbers

SP-StudioWelcome, all you new kids from TikTok!

Recently I have been getting a surprising number of reports about loading issues. Then I realised that this is connected to a sudden increase in visitor numbers around mid-February. Seems like SP-Studio.de became a popular TikTok trend! As happy as I am about this it brings problems. My server could not handle so many visitors and boosting it is expensive. I created a help page asabout this. Update: I changed something on March 7th so the loading problems got better.

Update: Famous superheroes

SP-Studio Update: Superman, Batman, Spider-ManWhile you could already dress up your characters as many different superheroes the most famous ones were missing… and I was asked for them a lot. I had their original logos in the old SP-Studio but wasn’t sure about the copyrights, and so I created unique logos now (they change all the time anway ;)). And you can select your own colors for alternative suits. These are the new costumes inspired by the most famous heroes:

  • Superman suit
  • Batsuit
  • Spider-Man suit
  • Batman’s gloves and the two capes as seperate items

Happy Holidays!

2022 saw the 20th birthday of the SP-Studio, I drew several updates with new items and Lars brought back the text tool in better shape. I want to thank everybody who wrote motivating comments during this year, because they always brighten up my day. And of course there are the wonderful Patreon supporters and everybody else who donated for maintaining the SP-Studio. Since I am currently not running ads the donations are very important.

Update: Toys & Sports

SP-Studio Update: Toys & Sports24 more “toys & sports” objects – and an Wish Voting update!

The annual Christmas Special is starting tomorrow and so I quickly finished the November update: Many old an new items related to sports, boardgames and retro consoles. I asked my Patrons about which new items they wanted to see and since they voted for games I drew chess pieces and a Nintendo GameCube controller.

There is also an update for the Wish Voting Gallery where I uploaded your requests for new items. During the Christmas Special I will select wishes from there, so make sure to comment on your favourite ideas and give them a heart! During December I will draw 24 daily surprise updates.

Update: Hobby tables

SP-Studio Update: Hobby tablesSix new tables for different activities were added as foreground effects!

This update was something I planned to do for a long time, because it will help to personalize your profile pictures even more with your favourite hobbies. The tables in the foreground are packed with a lot of different things, and I hope you like them! If you enjoy video games or just want your character to work on a computer this is now possible. But what about a trading card game or a jigsaw puzzle? They are included as well. Then there is this tasty kitchen scene for cooks. Of couese an artist’s table with colored pencils and a sketch book should not be missing. And finally I’ve been drawing a table with books, notes and a big cup of coffee for all of you who stay up late to read, write and learn. Every scene comes with custom colors for certain elements.
