Make Your Own Designs

Making your own designs is straight forward. Just open the Custom Designs app and select a blank square (or a pattern you made earlier that you want to edit). Then, simply edit it! Color in the square to make your design a reality.

Keep in mind you can unlock Pro Designs (allowing you to make specific kinds of clothes) by buying it at the Nook Shop.

Animal Crossing Custom Clothing Templates New Horizons Could Add

Animal Crossing's custom clothing design templates are somewhat lacking in New Horizons. Here are a few new options the game could add, such as pants.

Although Animal Crossing: New Horizons does provide quite a few options in terms of custom clothing templates, there are still some obvious options missing from the feature, especially given the other clothing items available in-game. Here are some of New Horizons' biggest opportunities for improvement in terms of clothing design.

Like most of New Horizons' other gameplay features, such as terraforming and DIY crafting, the clothing customization is widely customizable. Players have various templates to choose from and many have come up with unique Animal Crossing clothing design tricks in order to make the system even more versatile. For example, some New Horizons fans have found ways to add accessories such as jewelry or even bangs to accompany hats. Others have managed to create crop-tops and swimsuits by matching their player character's skin tone.

There's still room for improvement, though, and it's possible that the system could be further expanded in later New Horizons updates. Although most changes to the game as of late have been minor - and relatively controversial among Animal Crossing fans, especially the summer update which failed to live up to expectations following last year's large gameplay additions such as diving - the developers have promised new content is coming to New Horizons in the near future.

New Horizons Could Add Customizable Overalls

Given that overalls are available to wear in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, it's surprising that they've yet to appear as a design template. Even villagers can wear them, although overalls instead turn into skirts with suspenders when they put them on, making it one of the more versatile clothing options in the game.

Custom Open Coats Should Appear In Animal Crossing

Coats are a popular clothing item in New Horizons, both in the Able Sister's shop and in terms of custom designs. One major flaw, however, when it comes to coat templates in Animal Crossing is that it has to be the same length all around. Other coats in-game are often shorter in the front and longer in the back, giving the appearance of an open-face jacket atop a shirt. It's disappointing that players can't build off of this idea in their custom designs just yet.

Pants Aren't A Clothing Template In New Horizons

As common as pants are in terms of New Horizons' clothing options, it's surprising that they've yet to be added to its custom design templates. This could be because of how the game's villagers interact with the feature, though. Villagers have a tendency to wear any custom designs that are put up on display in the Able Sister's shop. They can also be gifted new clothing, though they may opt to display it in their home instead of wearing it. One factor that impacts this is the fact that the villagers in New Horizons can't wear pants. In order to avoid complications in this regard, perhaps developers opted to leave pants out of the equation entirely in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. That said, it still feels like a missed opportunity.

Are you a designer or artist, who&#;s become addicted to Animal Crossing: New Horizons? Contemplating on making your own custom design? Want to do that design work in Photoshop or Procreate? Hey, so did I!

Potentially, you have, as I did, found that the web is somewhat lacking practical design specifications for creating custom content for ACNH. Pixel grid dimensions, color counts, and 3D clothing model unwraps seem non-existent. There are a ton of articles about how to find and install others&#; custom designs, as well as several about how to create your designs in the very neat, but limited, ACPatterns or Custom Design Pro editors. But like most designers, you probably prefer creating in the tools you can do your best work in, like Photoshop, Procreate, or even concept sketching on paper.

After a fruitless search, you might think to ask the community&#; Well, good news! I made that mistake for you. I asked New Horizons design communities hoping they&#;d be full of helpful tips, sage wisdom, and clearer design specs. They imparted the tremendously helpful advice that I should figure it out myself, just like everyone else did. So I did.

But I believe better design comes from sharing and I don&#;t want anyone else to repeat my experience. I compiled my notes for any other artists who want to use professional design tools to make, or at least concept, their custom content. I hope this helps more players, designers or not, feel comfortable with trying their hand at creating in New Horizons.

Two Paths for Importing your Custom Design

The reasonthat there are so many articles about designing in the ACPatterns Editor and the Custom Design Pro Editor is because these are the only two paths you have to importing your content into your game. While these are the only two avenues available for uploading, you can concept, plan, and even design your customs outside of these editors.

Knowing which tool you&#;re importing through up front will affect how you set-up your design initially. Once you&#;ve decided, I&#;ve included some design specs and templates to make designing easier.

QR Code Uploads (Unofficial)

The ACPatterns Editor offers an in-browser editor, including the ability to upload and slice up images (into 32x32px blocks) to be converted to game-friendly custom designs. This tool will generate a QR code or batch of QR codes that can be scanned in through the Animal Crossing: New Horizons (NookLink) service on the NintendoSwitch Online phone app. Before I&#;d even unlocked Island Designer, I found this tool super helpful for building out custom curved paths, which I set up in Photoshop, to create a French Quarter-inspired square around resident services.

But, it is not without drawbacks. Because you can load in QR codes from any designer, you cannot edit QR code designs once they are in game. If you realize you wanted to make a small change after upload, you have to go through the entire upload-to-QR-to-game process again, which can be time consuming. For this same reason, you are unable to upload these designs into under Creator ID through the terminal in Able Sisters or display those custom creations in your shop. If you want to share your designs, you basically need to distribute a zipped file of your QR code images or create an image that contains all of them.

On top of that, it slices up clothing into multiple different QR codes, which I actually couldn&#;t even figure out how to import properly. At that point, I decided to try my luck with more official avenue.

In-Game Publishing (Official)

Up front, the biggest drawback to the Custom Design Pro Editor is that you will have to manually put whatever designs you make, pixel-for-pixel, into this tool. In exchange, you get a Creator ID, allowing other players to easily browse and download your custom designs by just typing it into the terminal at their Able Sisters shop. It also generates a wicked cute product mockup image with your character and island name for social sharing. Also, it has more and much nicer 3D unwraps for clothing.

Just because you have to manually input your designs into this tool, doesn&#;t mean you can&#;t concept and plan outside of it to make the actual entry process much easier. Being able to count pixels to replicate a design you set up in Photoshop or on paper into the Custom Design Pro Editor can save you a ton of time clicking around and trying to decide how to make your design look right. I even set up some pixel art concept sheets, so you can start planning out custom texture and clothing designs before you even unlock the Able Sisters shop.

Design Specifications and Limitations

As with most games, there are many design limitations to help keep file sizes small to optimize for speed. Knowing your boundaries before coming up with some elaborate, but impossible to implement, plan can save you a ton of frustration. Below, you&#;ll find the specs I was able to figure out through my research.

Applicable to all designs:

  • Maximum size of 64x64px for clothing or 32x32px for repeating patterns — These are teeny tiny designs.
  • ppi — As with most screen-based devices nowadays, the Switch Lite has, at least, a double-density pixel display.
  • Limited to 15 total colors + mandatory transparent — 15 pre-made palettes available, but approximately 6, different colors can be set using the Change Color options (30 hues + 15 vividness levels + 15 levels of brightness)

Helpful Tips:

  • Brushes: Use a 1px non-raster brush (like Kyle&#;s Manga &#; Crisp at 1px) or marquee-select and fill with paint bucket, when creating images digitally.
  • Pixel Grid: If you are doing your initial design in Photoshop, open your Preferences, navigate to Guides, Grid, & Slices, and under Grid set Gridline Every: to 8 Pixels with 8 Subdivisions. When you zoom in, you&#;ll be able to see your pixel grid. If you don&#;t, go to View > Show > Grid to toggle the setting.
  • Seamless Patterns: You can find a tutorial for creating seamless repeating patterns in Photoshop by clicking here. You will only want to offset by around px on a 32x32px grid.
  • Tops/Dresses: On ACPatterns, sleeves are mirrored outside-to-inside, with the seam joining along the lateral plane (middle) of the arm. On the Pro Editor, the sleeve design is wrapped around the arm, with the seam joining along the inside of the arm.
  • Headwear/Hats: On ACPatterns, hats use a 32x32px grid and the &#;with horns&#; version just adds grey Viking-style horns. On the Pro Editor, headwear uses an up to 64x64px grid. The side panel on the baseball cap is repeated 3 times around the back and the knitted cap panel is repeated 2 times (once on the front and once on the back of the head).
  • Fonts: With any typefaces used in your designs, you will want to have your anti-alias settings switched to None. Lucida Console is a non-raster pixel font that was developed to remain legible at a very small scale.

Custom Design Clothing Templates

Looking at an unwrap of a 3D object can get a little confusing, especially if you have limited 3D design experience. It helps to have some idea of which pixels represent which parts of the clothing you are working on. I created these templates to help make the unwraps make a bit more sense.

ACPatterns Editor Templates

These templates were created to make graphics for direct upload into the ACPatterns Editor tool. You can download these GIFs, import them into your editing tool of choice and start designing right over them. I have also included a link to download the PSD versions of these files that you can open up directly in Photoshop.

When you&#;re done, you can load the images into ACPatterns Editor and import them into your game by following these instructions. I made these templates before I realized uploading clothing through ACPatterns isn&#;t ideal, but I still wanted to share them just in case anyone needed them.

ACNH Custom Design Pro Editor Templates (Best Method)

REMINDER: You will manually have to enter these designs, pixel-for-pixel, into the Custom Design Pro Editor. I still made them because I prefer to do some proper planning before haplessly clicking around in the in-game editor.

As with above, you can download these GIFs, import them into your editing tool of choice and start designing right over them. I have also included a link to download the PSD versions of these files that you can open up directly in Photoshop. I also used them to create some printable concept sheets that you can use to sketch out your ideas and plan your designs.

ACNH Custom Design Concept Coloring Sheets

I made these coloring sheets for players to print and start sketching out their New Horizons pixel art ideas and concepts. There are 15 palette spots to keep track of how many colors you&#;re using to stay within the game&#;s limitations. These concept sheets should make it easier to map out your custom designs in the in-game Custom Design Pro Editor.

I included a low-res version of the Tops concept sheet so you have an idea of what the pages look like before downloading. They are formatted for a standard &#;x11&#; page, but you&#;ll likely want to shrink-to-fit when printing.

If you appreciate the fact that I didn&#;t use any of these content downloads as a chance to farm your email address, maybe you&#;d like to volunteer that information with me by subscribing to my super infrequent mailing list or my Patreon.

All this to say, I did it! I figured out how to make some custom designs for New Horizons. I&#;m trying to make the area around my Resident Services look as much like Jackson Square in New Orleans, as possible. You can see the custom path designs I created in the image above.

I&#;m not going to share my aggregate concrete path yet because it still needs some improvements and honestly takes up too many design slots for it to be useful for anyone who isn&#;t trying to do the exact design I am. I will make a less bulky version of it at some point, but I have other things on my priority list right now.

My Creator ID is MA if you&#;re interested in browsing my designs from the Able Sisters shop! My first official in-game creations were a Cutieville souvenir t-shirt featuring my blushing alien cutie character, followed by stylized portraits of Jambette and Lily to display in my artist alley.

Very soon I plan on doing portraits of all my villagers: Flo, Genji, Stu, Marshal, Shari, and whomever my next two villagers happen to be. I&#;ll be open to doing commissions after that, if any one is interested.

Lastly, here are a couple of the ACPatterns QR code designs I created, an Alien Cutie flag for my island and a custom &#;Free&#; sign made to mimic the iconic artwork of artist Simon of New Orleans (pictured with me below).

The word &#;lagniappe&#; in Cajun French means &#;something given or obtained gratuitously or by way of good measure.&#; In the spirit of lagniappe, I&#;m giving you free information, concept worksheets, and the confidence to go out and create the Animal Crossing custom design of your dreams.

Get out there and transform your island in your image. And, please, share a pic in the comments of any creations you make!

How To Convert ANY Image Into a CUSTOM DESIGN In Animal Crossing New Horizons - Guide/Tutorial

Show off your custom design skills on your island by starting your design in Adobe Photoshop.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has a built-in Pro Designs tool, but creating complex designs in-game can be daunting. It’s easy to begin your pro design by creating a guide in Adobe Photoshop, which will allow you to easily transfer your ideas into the in-game designer. This way, you’ll be creating custom designs for your paths, furniture and more in no time.

Here is a simple way to create a guide for Animal Crossing’s Pro Designs tool.

  1. Begin by designing an image or finding an image you like. Adobe has several design platforms to get you started. You can use Illustrator, Photoshop or InDesign to create any kind of design you’d like for your island. Animal Crossing’s Pro Designs tool uses a square design, so start with a square artboard. You’ll be reducing the size later, so the dimensions don’t matter right now. Remember that more complex designs might be harder to translate to the in-game design tool later.

  2. Put your image or design into Adobe Photoshop. Moving your image over to Photoshop will allow you to reduce the dimension and resolution to the size necessary for Animal Crossing’s Pro Designs tool. If your image isn’t already a square, you can crop it in Photoshop.

  3. Reduce the dimensions and resolution. In Photoshop, go to Image on the top bar, then select Image Size. Reduce the image size to 32 by 32 pixels. This is the exact dimensions of Animal Crossing’s Pro Designs tool. Zoom in to see how the image would look in Animal Crossing. If it is too pixelated to recognize what it’s an image of, you’ll want to simplify your design and start over, or continue to the next step and simplify there.

  4. Create a new layer and paint the image. This step isn’t entirely necessary, but it will allow you to see the image better and will make it easier for the in-game transition. You’ll want to create a new layer and lower the opacity to where you can see the image underneath as you paint. Select the paint brush tool and change the size to one pixel. Then, paint in each square using the colors that match your image.

  5. Save your image and transition to Animal Crossing’s Pro Designs tool. You should now have a perfect guide that shows how to transition your pattern to the game’s Pro Designs tool. Copy the image to the Pro Designs tool by coloring in each square the way it matches the Photoshop design. You’ll then be able to use the design as you’d like within the game!

    As a “Pro” tip, consider splitting your original image or design into several squares before following the above steps. You can do this in Photoshop by cropping the original image several times. This will allow you to have a larger, clearer design to use in the game. You can do this with logos, your personal island name, photos, and much more.

On top of that, I practically issued the sanction for this event myself. No, of course, when I agreed with my wife's best friend Tanya to watch the massage of my betrothed, I could not even dream of what. I would witness. So: massage of the wife; her orgasm from massage (it was something!); wife's naked masturbating girlfriend; the wife ends up (the second time) from the hands of.

What is it. Speak quickly. - the delighted girls threw up their hands. - I just dont know.

Now discussing:

Its good that I didnt give up, I felt like this place someone elses aggregate, so I wrinkled my ass. Come on, its good that I didnt give up, but how can I explain to Roman how I ended up under him. You need to come up with a factual argument, otherwise he will definitely connect my holes.
