    The new SP-Studio contest is about MEDICAL DOCTORS (or M.D.). Create a SP-Studio picture about a famous fictional doctor like John Watson, Dana Scully, Meredith Grey, Leonard H. McCoy… or a famous real life doctor like Sigmund Freud. But you can also make up a picture of your own doctor. It’s just important that they work in the medical field, so NO DOCTOR WHO. ;)


    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:


    Your picture must be at least 300×300 px big (not the small size). You are only allowed to use the SP-Studio, so don’t edit with additional software. No cutting, background rotating or color changes. Of course it must be your own creation. And it must fit the topic of the month. Add a fitting title to show how it is related to the topic.

    Congratulations to the winners!

    Deadpool is BREAKING THE FORTH WALL
    5) Ross Black
    Breaking the 4th wall

    (5 points)

    I wanted to delete the Deadpool picture at first, but the "4th wall" is a concept which originated in theater. So I thought it's fitting for the topic if the picture is about 4th wall breaking, even if the character is from a movie.

    I am still working on transferring and fixing all items to the new SP-Studio. I feel bad for how long this takes, but unfortunately I don't have the option to invest more time right now. The donations are a huge help, but they are not enough to reduce my regular work time a lot. So while the new SP-Studio is constantly growing this happens rather slowly.


    The beta version is working, but it's not worth sharing it for testing because there is not much potential for errors yet.


    I will give a more detailed update in September and will see if I can show some more intersting things until then.

    One of your wished topics for the SP-Studio contests was this one: THATRE! Make your picture look like a stage performance! It could be inspired by classic Greek or Chinese theatre... you could show scenes or characters from plays by acclaimed writers... jobs related to the theatre... or how about a cheerful broadway musical? Even your personal school play experiences can find a place here. It's a rather free topic, so let's see what you make of it!

    This month will be funny. The current SP-Studio contest is all about comedy movies! Select a movie of your choice and show a character, scene or poster related to it. The rules are as always:


    1. Create a SP-Studio picture about a comedy movie
    2. Upload your unedited picture UNTIL JULY 20th 2019
    3. On July 21st VOTING will start here on this page
    4. On August 1st the winner will be announced



    Rules for pictures:


    Your picture must be at least 300×300 px big (not the small size). You are only allowed to use the SP-Studio, so don’t edit with additional software. No cutting, rotating or color changes.

    Of course it must be your own creation. And it must fit the topic of the month. This time it’s “comedy movies”. Show a scene, poster or character from a comedy movie of your choice. No tv shows, only movies please.

    I'm back, tired, but it was a lot of fun. It was the 19th (wow, we're old) annual meeting of my German South Park community, and even though many of us don't watch the show anymore we're still good friends. I rented a scout cabin for us which was pretty awesome.


    Here's the new topic so you can start to work on pictures: Comedy Movies! A forum thread will come soon, I still need to finish the new icon. But you can already submit your picture.

    The next part is online! Nine new t-shirts for different tastes. I wanted to provide some neutral designs for metal or anime fans which are not based on existing brands.



    I see those problems as well. When some do their best to use the items in a creative way and a rather simple picture gets more points this can be annoying. As long as it is an open vote I guess we cannot avoid things like that.


    At least the top spots look creative: These are the results of the 100th contest!


    Congratulations to the winners! It was close...

    It’s summer time! Well, at least where I live. And this inspired me to draw some new clothes for your sweating SP-Studio characters. In this first update I focused on swimwear: Nine swim trunks and six bikini tops were included.


    Remember you will be able to customize all their colors in the new SP-Studio. So that’s something to look forward to. :)


    The second summer fashion update will bring new t-shirt designs and will be online next Friday.

    We reached a huge milestone! :clap: The 100th SP-Studio contest will be something special, because there is no topic. You can upload any picture you want. Just pick your personal favorite! What's the one most creative picture you have ever created? What artwork are you really proud of? I know it's difficult to choose, but let's just combine a beautiful collection to celebrate the 100th contest.

    1. Create a SP-Studio picture (or choose an old one)
    2. Upload your unedited picture UNTIL JUNE 20th 2019
    3. On June 21st VOTING will start here on this page
    4. On July 1st the winner will be announced

    The winner gets a free wish for a SP-Studio item of his or her choice. This will be the last contest with this 1st prize until the new SP-Studio is finished. I want to minimize the time I need to spend on other things because the development takes so long. But I will continue with the contests just for fun and make sure to share the winners on social media.


    Rules for pictures:


    Your picture must be at least 300×300 px big (not the small size). You are only allowed to use the SP-Studio, so don’t edit with additional software. No cutting, rotating or color changes. Of course it must be your own creation! But it can be an old picture you already uploaded for another contest. This month has no specific topic – just show your most creative picture! Let’s celebrate the 100th contest by looking at the best of the best. :)

    Yes, it will be online in about half an our. I'm fixing some things right now.


    Thank you for your ideas! I will use them after #100 for the next months.
