    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.

    On my quest to help you build the beard of your dreams I added 10 new items to the “stuff / beards” category. In the SP-Studio you can not just pick one beard, you can combine different parts to make it fit your unique style. The new items inlude mutton chops, chin beards and mustaches.

    The topic of this update was chosen by the 5$+ Patreon Supporters in a vote. I hope you like the new hairy parts. :)

    Game of Thrones. I like both and for the most part the Lord of the Rings feels more "epic". But I am more invested in the Game of Thrones characters. Beside of the characters I enjoy the darker, medieval tone a lot.


    Movies in 2D or 3D?

    I revived and renamed an old DeviantArt account to have a complete gallery of my SP drawings:


    https://www.deviantart.com/sp-studio-art/gallery/?catpath=/


    If you want to see improved artworks related to SP-Studio updates this might be interesting. :) There are also some characters who did not appear in SP-Studio updates yet. And my old commissions are there as well if you scroll down, because I did not delete anything. I am currently in the process of uploading more detailed versions of the Marvel superheroes.

    As soon as I can decide on a topic. </ I am not happy with my list of possible topics right now and in a very un-creative state. But I really have to start this new contest today.
