    The vote has started!
    And I am really surprised how many great and funny pictures we have this time. <3


    As always here are the stats:


    This time there are 76 pictures in this contest.

    From 111 uploads 35 were disqualified:

    8 were no SP-Studio pictures

    14 were double entries by the same person

    13 were disqualified for different reasons - mostly for not matching the topic


    9 pictures were labeled as [DOES THIS COUNT?] because I do not recognize the meme, but want to give a chance to clear things up in the comments.

    Pick a (picture!) meme and try to recreate it with the SP-Studio! If you are not sure what a meme is, you can check Wikipedia. For this contest we are looking for meme images – so a funny video clip or web series would not count. If a video clip was also used for a popular static image meme it counts.


    Examples: Grumpy cat, Bad luck Brian, Pepe the frog, Momo, This is fine, Distracted Boyfriend, rage comics, Lolcat, expanding brain, Drake, Futurama Fry… You can find more inspiration here.

    Please remember: You are only allowed to use the SP-Studio, so do not edit with additional software (no cutting, drawing or filters). Don’t resize your picture. Of course it must be your own creation.

    Rules for uploads: When you upload your picture, please add a TITLE (the meme you refer to) and your NAME! Use the same name for all your uploads. Names like anonymous, idk or me are not allowed. Too many use them.

    Jury members are not allowed to talk about which picture is their's until the voting phase is over.


    Upload your picture here: https://pollunit.com/en/polls/sp-studio-contest-2024-02


    The rules are as always:

    1. CREATE a SP-Studio picture about the topic of the month
    2. UPLOAD your unedited picture until the 20th
    3. VOTING will start on the 21st (jury votes count x2,5)
    4. THE WINNERS will be announced at the start of next month


    ...and don't forget to VOTE for future contest topics! :)

    The current decline of numbers is normal, because there only were so many people because of last year's TikTok hype with its sudden rise in visitor numbers. Unfortunately these things usually don't last long. But some will stay, and that's already good. :)


    I now started a poll with many different topics to choose from. You can pick up to five:

    Pick up to 5 topics for future SP-Studio contests! - Online Poll - StrawPoll
    What's your opinion? Vote now: Internet nostalgia, Web toons & web series, Advertisment mascots, Pocket monsters (Pokémon, Digimon, Palworld...), Anime, Emmy…
    strawpoll.com

    Unfortunately the theatre contest was the least populat topic of all time (as far as I can recall it). I understand personal preferences, but we want many to enjoy it and upload their pictures. :)


    There were many popular contest topics during the early years to choose from.

    The vote has started!


    The stats:

    This time there are 44 pictures in this contest.

    From 72 uploads 28 were disqualified: 2 were no SP-Studio pictures, 4 were double entries by the same person, 22 were disqualified for different reasons - mostly for not matching the topic. Only one picture was disqualified for being related to a current political conflict.


    There are still two or three pictures in the contest which are a bit extreme in their visuals... I wasn't sure if I should allow them. If you think pictures like these should not be allowed feel free to comment.

    New year, new contests! Pick an event from the year 2023. Any media release (movie, game, music album) or news story counts, but you can also pick a personal event if it's unique for this year. For example your wedding would count, but no picture of your annual Christmas dinner. Please avoid the topic of current political conflicts / political propaganda.


    Please remember: You are only allowed to use the SP-Studio, so do not edit with additional software (no cutting, drawing or filters). Don’t resize your picture. Of course it must be your own creation.

    Rules for uploads: When you upload your picture, please add a TITLE and your NAME! Use the same name for all your uploads. Names like anonymous, idk or me are not allowed. Too many use them.

    Day 24: Happy holidays everybody! :party:

    As the final update for this year, I drew a funny snowman costume for your characters to wear. It comes with a carrot nose (that can also be used as a regular nose by swichting off the shadows).


    I hope you enjoyed the Christmas Special and there were useful items for everybody in it. I'll now be on vacation, but there will be a picture contest in early January and you can expect a new content update in late January after my return.


    Thanks to everybody who supported the SP-Studio during this year and for every nice comment you made!



    Day 20: Finally a wheelchair has been added to the SP-Studio! Sitting feet for it can already be found in the "Pants & Shoes" category.


    This update is something special, because I have been asked for years to include a wheelchair. The reason why I never did it was because it is too big to fit into the picture. The bottom is not visible. But wheelchairs were still requested a lot, and so I guess it is better to include it this way than to avoid it completely. And of course you can move the wheelchair and the whole character up if you want to do this.


    Day 17: How about an EXPLOSIVE new background?


    Please excuse the fact that this Christmas special is a bit chaotic in terms of upload dates. I'm still struggling to catch up on all the work after my illness. But I can asure you there will be 24 surprises, and I hope this is what counts. :)
