There is hardly any gaming experience such as Roblox.
Now you say what is Roblox?
An online gaming platform where you can pose as customizable characters which are called Avatars.
While the Players of the game are represented as Avatars, there is a lot of customization that can happen with these avatars. One can purchase clothing and accessories from Avatar shop, or better make one yourself.
And this happens to almost every new player that the first thing they may be wanting to do or come looking for is how to make a shirt. This world of game creation can get easily weary and too much because there are so many things to do.
So, the best step is to go basic instead of just being a spectator to other people’s games.
Here, are a few ways you can do so!
Part 1 of 2:
Designing a T-Shirt Decal
Open an image editor.
There is no set image editor that you should use, if you are comfortable with MS Paint you can still design the T-shirt. Some other image editors that you can use to design a decal for a T-shirt in Roblox are Photoshop, GIMP.
Create a new file.
The first step in any of these editors ( Photoshop, GIMP, or Paint) is to create a file that can be done as follows.
- Click File in the upper-right corner.
- Click New.
Set the image dimensions to 128 x 128 pixels (the recommended image size for Roblox T-shirt decals).
Under the drop-down menu, select “Pixels” or “px” next to “Height” and “Width”, and then type 128 in the boxes next to “Height” and “Width”, this will set dimensions accordingly.
- To resize the image in MS Paint, find the “Image” panel at the top and click Resize. You’ll find a radio button next to “Pixels” click on it. Then type 128 next “Horizontal” and “Vertical” after unchecking the “Maintain aspect ratio” box.
4 . Design the T-shirt decal.
There are endless possible ways to get creative for your T-shirt decal. There are different program tools such as Paint Bucket which can be used to fill color in the background, text tool for adding text, brush tool to draw or to add texture. Or something like a marquee tool that can be used to add an image or pattern from another image onto your T-shirt.
