Every day from December 1st to December 24th a new surprise update is waiting for you! Last year I took a break because of the relaunch, but now the beloved annual Christmas Specials are back. For 24 days I will draw all kinds of new backgrounds, clothes and other objects to give you more possibilities to build your pictures. The old Christmas Specials can be found here.
And the best part is: YOU can request new items for these updates! Upload them to the Wish Voting gallery and if I like them they will appear there. Then everybody can discuss them. Popular ideas have a high chance to appear in the Christmas Special. But I will also include surprises from older requests which are not in the gallery.
I hope you enjoy the updates! Of course I am happy about feedback, so tell me about your favourites. 🙂
27 SP-Studio items have been added to the “special costumes” category!
This big update brings back many beloved costumes from the old SP-Studio in improved form: Fantasy outfits, superheroes, Halloween costumes, fake muscles, swimwear,… I used more shadows and highlights on some of them, but you can turn them off if you prefer the flat look. Of course you can also change the colors for everything. Three completely new costumes have been added as well. Black is beautiful, so I hope you like the dark outfits inspired by Black Panther, Darth Vader (Star Wars) and Yennefer (The Witcher). With Darth Vader and Black Panther I wanted to finally provide fitting shirts for the existing masks and Yennefer was chosen in a poll by my Patreon supporters.
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!
Current gen consoles and some retro extras (as voted for by my 5$+ Patrons) have found their way into the SP-Studio! You can add them to your picture by visiting the stuff / toys & sports category. This is new:
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.
After 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.
The big SP-Studio Christmas Special has started! This means updates every day until Christmas, and like every SP-Studio update I give you all of this for free. Those new clothes, body parts, backgrounds and accessories will be based on the wishes of my visitors. Write your requests in the comments and maybe they will be included. The first new item is a baking sheet full of Christmas cookies. I will update this post with the Advent Calendar every day, so keep an eye on it. The old Christmas Specials can be found here: 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013.
This is the final video game costume for a while. You voted for Dante from Devil May Cry, and so I included his hair-style and clothes. I picked this version because it seems to be the best known und unique one. Sorry if you prefer the new Dante, but I had to choose one ;).
So what’s next?
I am working on a mixed update with all kind of stuff, so feel free to make suggestions. Ideas which are useful for many of my visitors are welcome. Trendy hair-styles and clothes, items for popular sports and other hobbys, background images you miss a lot… but no too special things and costumes this time. I will use the Wish Voting Gallery for inspiration as well. You can vote and comment on ideas there.
You voted for her, so here is her costume: Princess Peach, well known from Nintendo’s Super Mario games.
I included her long hair and the pink dress.
Unfortunatley there is one little problem with this costume… long hair-styles always cover the puffed sleeves. This is something I cannot change easily, because the SP-Studio items are layered in a strict order. But I will try to find a solution someday.
The next and final videogame related update will be Dante from the “Devil May Cry” games. You voted for it, so I will draw this costume for you :).
