    Lars is on fire! Our favourite React developer added even more features to the SP-Studio:

    • Improved rotation: You can now choose to rotate an item clockwise or counter-clockwise.
    • Repositioning the options: In the desktop view a new arrow icon lets you pin the options menu to the top of the page. This can be helpful if you don’t want it to cover the item list. Some of you asked for a way to drag and drop the whole menu, but since this was not possible Lars came up with this solution. Eggyslav  :)
    • Two new items: And as a little thank you for Lars I included bigger round glasses and a smart watch. The new SP-Studio gets better with every update and I appreciate his help a lot.

    This month the topic is NICHTMARES! Fitting for the Halloween season. :) Create a SP-Studio picture about a nightmare you had or a nightmare scene from a movie or videogame.


    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 on the contest page
    4. THE WINNERS will be announced at the start of next month


    Rules for pictures:


    You are only allowed to use the SP-Studio (the old one or the new one), so do not edit with additional software. No cutting, drawing or filters. You are allowed to resize your picture, but make sure it's at least 300x300 px big. The original size is best. Of course it must be your own creation. Please add a fitting title to show how it is related to the topic.

    Hello, I got your wish and will add it to the gallery this weekend. :) But I think I will only add the jersey with numbers on it, because most other items are already in the SP-Studio. There are wide pants like the ones in the picture, different head bands and tank tops.

    Lars (LGK) coded useful new functions for the SP-Studio!

    • A language switcher was added to the bottom of the main page. Until now the language was only determined by your browser settings.
    • A button for the default character was added. After deleting all items you can now bring back the blue default character instead of building from scratch.
    • You can now save SVG files. They have the best quality and can be edited in specialized software.
      ArtisticFangirl will Like this :)
      Because of my trouble with art theft it was no easy choice for me to allow these files. But I trust you to always mention SP-Studio.de as a source when you use my drawings for your own projects. Please show this respect for my years of work by adding a back link when sharing pictures based on SP-Studio assets. Under no circumstances I allow to just steal and share my assets (like the backgrounds) on websites like DeviantArt. If you see something like this please tell them about the terms of use.

    This week I will livestream on two days while working on the next SP-Studio update:
    https://www.twitch.tv/zwergimbikini
    The streams will be in English and last for at least 1 hour each. I hope some of you will join me! 📹 As always I will answer questions from the Twitch chat while drawing and preparing new items (shirts). The different times should hopefully work for more locations around the world:

    ⌚ Monday at 19:00 CEST
    (check your timezone)

    ⌚ Wednesday at 11:00 CEST
    (check your timezone)

    From now on please submit any new item request to the wish voting gallery HERE...


    I will keep this topic open in case you have questions regarding your wishes. Usually uploades wishes will be added within one week. If it is not added to the gallery I usually have my reasons ;). But if you wonder why feel free to ask me.

    The WISH VOTING GALLERY is back!


    This part of the website gives you the chance to submit ideas for new SP-Studio items I should draw. You can upload a picture with a short description and if I like the idea it will be added to the gallery. There everybody can rate and discuss it. When I work on future updates I will have a look at the gallery and it will help me to decide which popular requests to focus on first. So from now on please submit any item request to the gallery instead of posting it elsewhere. This way everything is in one place. :)

    The next SP-Studio update will again come with some new "special shirts" inspired by pop culture. I am still looking for famous movies / games / tv shows with iconic costumes. For example the Ghostbusters suits or Darth Vader's outfit. Feel free to suggest any ideas if you want to share them. :)

    Look at this! Jareen2 started a Discord server for the SP-Studio:


    https://discord.gg/NJQ8eWEhcS


    There are the same areas as in the forum, but Discord is also more focused on small talk. So feel freeto join the server if you just want to chat. There will be a little voice/video chat meet up this Saturday starting at 7pm CEST to celebrate the new server.


    The Discord server is officially approved by me, but it is kind of an unofficial platform because I will not be able to be online all the time. This is Jareen's baby, and he will have an eye on the technical stuff and the users. Thank you very much for this! :clap:

    I am not sure when I will find time for the SP-Studio again, so I think it's best to not start a contets this month... I am sorry


    For some reason everything comes together. Yesterday I saw another doctor because of my eye problems and will need follow up visits next week. In addition I am getting my second Corona shot tomorrow (finally!) and don't know yet if I will feel well after it. More and more work is coming in as well. Not sure how to handle this right now... I hope to be back next week but unfortunately I cannot tell exactly when. :(

    I'm sorry, but this week was hell... a ton of work and I am preparing an online meet up for... omg... in about one hour. :excited:

    So for now I will just post the winners and will add nice pictures later.


    Congratulations to the winners!




    Update: improvements


    spstudio_update_2021-08-24.jpg



    Today’s update fixes errors, brings back 6 items and comes with many improvements!

    Since the launch of the new SP-Studio I collected many small issues on my to-do-list and I used this update to address most of them:

    • 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)

    I want to finish the old items and then I will have the time to decide which new things I want to focus on.


    I am also implementing the "wish voting" at the moment, so this will very likely come with the Discord server. It makes sense to combine those two to avoid spamming of item requests on the server.

    But September is very likely.
