Learn how to make Roblox shirt templates
Creating a shirt for your Roblox character can be as simple or as complex as you want to make it, but of course it would be best to start out with the basics. For this example, we are going to create a shirt template that is one pattern all over, but you can also apply different looks to each section of the shirt template for a unique look later.
1. Find a blank shirt template.
You can find a blank shirt template using any image search engine, and then place it into an image editor, such as the online Pixlr editor or Canva. Be sure the image is of the PNG file type (not a JPG or GIF file). Download the image, then import it into your editor. If you like to use Pixlr, you can use this link to add it directly to the editor. First, we picked our image:
Now we opened it in Pixlr:
2. Add some color to the template.
Now that your template is loaded, you will want to start your creation. Let’s add some yellow as a background color. Using the Shape tool, add a yellow rectangle as a new layer, then move the rectangle layer down below the template layer by dragging it down in the “Layers” window.
3. Add any extra details or have some fun.
If you are familiar with your image editor, you can try adding some textures or text to your shirt by using various tools. To add words, use the Add Layer > Text Layer tool:
To add a texture and then filter it onto the yellow rectangle, choose Image Layer and add a pattern image you have downloaded:
Then right click on the pattern Layer, and try different Blend Modes to see what you like (we used Darken to blend the pattern with the yellow rectangle):
Now we have a fun shirt to put on our avatar!
4. Save and export
Once you have your new design finished, you will need to save it to your computer. Find the Save button and be sure it gets saved as a PNG type file.
How to Upload your Roblox Shirt Template
Once you have your PNG file, head over to Roblox Develop and click on Shirts. Once the tab loads in, you can click on Upload to add your shirt design to your Creations. NOTE: It does cost 10 Robux to upload your shirt to your Creations at this time.
Click on the Shirt name, and you can see your new shirt on a sample Robloxian!
How to Test your Shirt Template
Now that we have the shirt into Roblox, we need to be sure things are working properly. Open Roblox Studio and click on New, then choose any template you want, such as Baseplate.
- In Studio, open the Avatar tab and click Build Rig.
2. Choose a rig type from the popup menu. This should drop an avatar mannequin in your workspace named Dummy.
3. In the Explorer window, hover over the Dummy object, click the ⊕ button and insert a Shirt object (it will show up as being called Clothing).
4. In the Properties window, locate the ShirtTemplate property:
5. Return to your Shirt from the Create menu on the Roblox website and click on the three small dots to copy the URL for your shirt.
6. Return to Roblox Studio, Click inside the ShirtTemplate property's row and paste the URL you copied from Roblox. This applies the clothing texture to the dummy character!
