How to post drawings in Splatoon 3

Show off your creative side!

Splatoon 3 isn't just a game where you can spray your squid friends with paint. You can also get creative and share drawings and ideas with other people! These drawing posts are really easy and can be created at any point after players jump in.

Once this post has been made, players that walk close to your character as they are moving around will be able to see it. It is also likely that your post will appear throughout the city as graffiti and signposts.
