Art Posts act as communication posts that are seen above the player in a matchmaking arena. You must be a participant of one of the three Splatfest Teams to post in Splatoon 3. Choose one of the three Splatfest teams:

  • Rock
  • Paper
  • Scissors

After selecting a team and getting control of your inkling in the home world, you must find the red mailbox in Splatoon 3’s main lobby. Fortunately, it’s rather easy to find as you can simply turn right once you reach Splatsville.

On the opposite side of Man-o’-Wardrobe, on Hotlantis’ left, and directly ahead of the three gear stores is the red mailbox. One artwork will display when you interact with the letterbox. In Splatoon 3, you have the option to make a Generic Art Post or something exclusive to a Splatfest if one is going on. Anytime you like, you can create a General Art Post.

When you select Splatfest Post, the drawing menu will appear, allowing you to create your masterpiece. It is preferable to sketch on a smartphone or a tablet since you may use a fingertip or a stylus on the touchscreen.

But you could also draw while docked if you only used the left joystick. It’s crucial to remember that only one live Splatoon Art Piece may be active at once.

Once it is saved, other players will be able to see your art in the lobby as they approach your avatar. Player Art postings may appear as graffiti everywhere; thus, you could spot one of your art posts on a building or anything similar.
