Today’s update fixes errors, brings back 6 items and comes with many improvements!
I addressed many small issues I collected on my to-do-list since the launch the new SP-Studio:
- I added / splitted some old items I forgot about (tambourine, 5 shirts)
- the layer order was improved for MANY items (beards, scarfs, belts, open coats, easel,…)
- all background places are moveable now (just in case you want them to move)
- small drawing errors were fixed (precious gloves, swimming trunks, pillars, helmets,…)
- more custom colors were added to the cape and Doc Ock tentacles
- old “update stars” were removed (they should just stay for a couple of weeks from now on)
12 missing objects and 4 new MAGIC EFFECTS have been added to the SP-Studio!
The umbrella is a complete redrawing. I asked my Patreon supporters what they want to see and they voted for lightning, so I decided to add several magic effects. If you want to vote for new updates and support the SP-Studio at the same time you can always join my Patreon campaign: https://www.patreon.com/janinahimmen Huge thanks to everybody who already did! Especially now that I have to deal with these health issues every donation is a big help.
By the way: Of course you can recolor, flip, rotate and move the new effects, so for example the lightning or sun like glowing could be moved to the sky to be used as weather effects.
56 items have been added to the “objects / toys & sports” category!
Most items from the old SP-Studio are back in improved form, inlcuding many sport items and videogame consoles. As a special bonus you get two completely new items: A pile of board games and a LEGO brick! These were wishes by my Patreon supporters.
With this update every category is filled with the most important items. I will stop doing the Sunday updates now and instead bring back the rest whenever I am finished. It’s been some busy weeks with a lot of pressure, but I am very happy with how the new SP-Studio turned out now that most items are back. 🙂 And of course I hope you enjoy it as well. See you soon!
42 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! 🙂
72 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
The Science Fiction update is online! It comes with these new items:
- places: cyberpunk city, spaceship bridge, crop circles, wormhole
- shirts: a uniform inspired by Star Trek and a made up Sci-Fi uniform
- stuff: U.F.O., laser blaster and force field
- skin: cyborg lines
Apart from the Star Trek uniform I wanted to keep the objects not too specific for fans of certain franchises, so none of them are copied from movies or videogames. This was kinda difficult for me, because I am not good at inventing weapons. 😉 But now I am satisfied with the results and I hope you like them as well. Thank you for you patience regarding this update. I needed a break after my grandpa passed away last month, but I feel better now.
And I started streaming again! The next Twitch livestream is scheduled for next Monday at 16:00 UTC (18:00 CET).
The 12th annual SP-Studio Christmas Special has started! I prepare 24 daily updates to surprise you with new clothes, body parts, background images or accessories. The advent calendar at the bottom of this blog post will be updated every day until Christmas, so make sure to keep an eye on it. Or you can follow the SP-Studio on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to be informed when a new item is live. The first update brings Crime Scene Tape as a new foreground effect!
I’m happy about your feedback, so feel free to comment or write an e-mail. You can also make wishes what you want to see in this year’s Christmas Special. Did you know for the first Christmas Special back in 2008 over 2.000 E-Mails with wishes were sent to me? And if you really like it you can help me a lot by supporting this project with a small donation. I hope you enjoy the surprises I prepared for you this time!
The old Christmas Specials can be found here: 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018.
I just uploaded the new www.sp-studio.de update with seven items based on your wishes (posted in emoji form):
- chocolate bar
- aubergine / eggplant
- lightning bolt
For the next SP-Studio update I came up with a strange idea… but I think it will be an interesting experiment.
Post emojis of the things you want to see in the next update!
I will pick some of your requests and draw them. There might be room for interpretation, but that’s the fun about it. Of course I will draw them in my own style, so there won’t be yellow faces. 😉
You can request as many emojis as you want by replying here, on Patreon, Twitter, Facebook or in the forum. If you use a mobile device it should be easy to add an emoji. If you are on a desktop computer and don’t know how to access them you can use this website and copy them: https://emojipedia.org. The update should be online around the end of this month.
To celebrate the end of an eventful year let’s have 24 days of SP-Studio updates in a row! The 11th annual Christmas Special has started with new clothes, body parts, background and other items. You don’t want to miss anything? I will write about it on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and update this blog post daily. The first update is a big one: Six new mouths for the face expressions of your characters!
As always I am happy about feedback. It’s your comments that mean a lot to me and this time of the year everybody can wish for an update. So don’t be shy – write about which recent updates you like and what you’d like to see in the future! You can make concrete wishes or just suggest which category I should visit again.
