It’s time for the annual SP-Studio Advent Calendar with daily updates! From December 1 until December 24 I will surprise you with new SP-Studio items. This blog post and the front page will be updatet every day and I will keep you informed on Facebook and Twitter as well. The old Christmas Specials can be found here: 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015.
Do you have a wish? You can request items in the blog comments or on Facebook and they might appear in one of the updates. I hope you enjoy the 24 surprises! The first one is a classic diving helmet.
sp-studio.de Update time!
I added five new items to the
“stuff” category today:
- hockey stick
- wooden staff
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.
Okay, you got me… Because of the upcoming wold cup in South Africa I got so many requests for football shirts, that I decided to do this one (and it will be the only one EVER, so don’t even think about asking for more sports wear! 🙂 ) special update. I drew them for all 32 teams, so every fan should find a fitting shirt for him now. You can combine the shirts with the text tool to add numbers and there’s a fitting background too. I hope you like it!
And regarding the world cup:
Recently I made a video for the German Acapella band “Basta” They recorded a funny song about the different teams. It’s in German, but perhaps you want to check it out anyway.
Basta – Gimme Hope Joachim (Video drawn & animated by me, Janina Himmen)
And I have some good news for the ones who can’t stand soccer at all: I am still working on another mixed update for the SP-Studio, which just needs more time.
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.
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).
