Tips To Create Custom Designs

Video Guide On How To Make Custom Design

Have A Physical Sample Ready

If you're trying to make a pro design, try to have a physical sample ready. It'll be easier for you to copy that sample if you can see it physically.

Place Background Color Nearby

Place Background Color Nearby

It's best to set the background color adjacent to your most used colors. This makes corrections easier and you don't have to go too far down the color wheel to fix and mistakes.

Adjust Background Color Last

Adjust Background Color Last

It is also recommended to adjust the background color last. It's easy to change colors by selecting the "Change Color" tool but it's best to adjust the background color after all your designs have been implemented.

Start With Smaller Designs First

Start With Smaller Designs First

It's easier to fill in colors with bigger spaces so concentrate on finishing up your smaller designs first. It'll also be easier to adjust the sizing of smaller designs.

Determine Design Size ASAP

Your overall canvas is 32 x 32 squares so it's best to determine the size of your design as soon as possible. Once you've designed a part, take a step back and look at the overall design to adjust its size.

Look At Overall Design Frequently

Look At Overall Design Frequently

You'll see the overall look and feel of your design on the lower left part of the screen. Whether it's a dress, a painting, or a hat, checking the sample will help you determine the scale & look of your design.
