    This month the topic is URBAN LEGENDS & CREEPYPASTA! I combined those two because they are very similar and many creepypasta stories spawned urban legends. Create a SP-Studio picture about one of them and use a fitting title to show which story you mean. If you are not familiar with this topic check out the Wikipedia lists for famous urban legends and creepypasta. Please avoid true crime stories unless there is an element of myth to them.



    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.

    You can now turn shadows and highlights off in the item options!


    Lars coded this useful new button for us, and I know many were waiting for it. You can now decide if you want to see an item with a more detailed look or if you prefer less details. In the old SP-Studio this was only possible for hairstyles, but now you find the button on all kind of items.


    There are many advantages of the new button: Patterns on wallpapers or clothes might look different when you turn off the shading. South Park fans who prefer the classic “flat” style can use it so their characters look more original. You can hide the glass of glasses. And with less details it is easier to use items as something else which will come in handy for the creative SP-Studio artists.

    There were more amazing pictures then five in this contest, what a fantastic showcase of SP-Studio creativity!

    Art Vandelay got 10 votes, followed by 7 votes for TigerRocks503 and 6 votes for KyloRenoir and SP-Simon.

    Art Vandelay No, because I felt like it is more exciting this way. And seeing the current votes might encourage cheaters if they see they are only one vote behind.


    DavidSchwarz AdBlock Plus does not block the poll for me, but if you use a different Ad Blocker you could try to deactivate it. Currently there is no ad at the website anyway. ;)

    I love these so much! The images and the descriptions. Even the title image look great. I am saving these and the Fiends of Southparkia thread right now because it's such an honor to be part of this. :)

    Update: Special shirts #2

    Finally! 25 items have been added to the “special shirts” category.


    This updates brings back more historical outfits, futuristic armor and fashion inspired by different cultures. You can recolor all of the new items and combine them with any other outfits.


    Though I still have to take care of myself my plan is to release updates of this scale whenever I can handle it. Thank you for your patience and kind comments during the last couple of weeks!

    Choose a specific ACTION MOVIE and create a SP-Studio picture about it! Martial Arts, car chases, Michael Bay, John Woo, Stallone or Schwarzenegger... if you are not sure if your movie counts as an action movie check the genre that's mentioned on https://www.imdb.com.

    Nice work everybody, you captured the essence of spring very well! :)

    And te new voting system seems to work better as the old one, so I will stick with it for now.

    Unfortunately no improvement with the eye drops so far. And I cannot get an appointment at the big clinic without seeing my doctor again first, so it's a bit frustrating right now. I think I will upload a smaller SP-Studio update next because I am not sure yet when my eyes will get better. I can work a bit, but really slow and with a lot of breaks. :( Some days are better, some are worse and I try to find out why.

    Art Vandelay I am a bit afraid that the topics might end up to be too specific or difficult if somebody is just choosing a topic which is a personal favorite. And I am always open for suggestions anyway. So I'd say: Write down your ideas for contets topics here or discuss about those already on the list - no matter if you are a winner or not. :)


    NoDanaOnlyZuul This is strange... Have you tried clicking on the link ("this link") on top of the embedded contest? Maybe it works in a single window.

    Thanks to all of you. :)


    In the meantime I have been to a second doctor and she immediately noticed very dry eyes. So I got some eye drops now I take multiple times per day. If this is the reason for my problems I shall notice an improvement soon. If it does not help I will try the next step in eye drops and then visit a clinic for a bigger check up. So at least I have some things to try out during the next 2 weeks. And I spend more time outside... well... as long as the weather is not super shitty. It's raining a lot lately which is not the most motivating when it comes to gardening or long walks.

    Thanks - and as soon as something is growing I will give an update about the gardening :) I also ordered a bigger screen to help my eyes relax during work. And to make sure there is no other health issue involved I will also get a second opinion from specialists.
