The development of the SP-Studio remake in 2020

  • Finally some problems with the development were solved and so I can give you a detailed update on the current situation. Some time was lost, but it looks good now! :) A new programmer offered me to help with the coding: Lars. He uses React and what he created during only a couple of days already is really impressive. I will show you screenshots and talk about new features as soon as we are 100% sure about it.

  • I have two:


    Are you going to add more long hairs, Heidi Turner’s hat and Annie Knitts’ hair in the new version?



    also, do you guys pretend to revamp the South Park styled avatar by making it look more accurate to how fourth graders look in the show?

    There will be new long hairstyles. But I am trying to not copy South Park items anymore since 2015.

    I thought about this decision a lot but stick to it for a while now (as good as I can ;) ). It feels more creative and fun to draw my own things. While I know many visitors of the SP-Studio are fans of the show and like the original SP characters I did not even watch the last couple of episodes... I kinda lost touch with it. I still love the drawing style, but I feel no deep connection to the South Park characters. This might sound strange, but I hope you understand what I mean.

    In addition just copying South Park items might result in copyright problems at some point, so this is the second reason why I stopped doing it.

    That said: Heidi's hair already is in the SP-Studio. :) Go to the long hairstyles, you don't need to scroll to the right. But you should remove the shadows/highlights to make it look like Heidi.

    I might add a curly hair-style inspired by Annie someday, but I won't just copy it then.

    Do you mean changing the base shape of the SP-Studio characters? It will be improved a little bit because it was not 100% symmetric. But I felt no need to change it a lot. Big changes would not be possible because then I'd have to redraw all clothes to make them fit again.
