The pigment colors, as they are displayed on artwork. This is your palette.

The Painting skill is required to craft custom sketches, which can be applied to some in-game objects.

Images can be uploaded on your account page, and then brought up for crafting in-game through Paint Sketch. Each sketch needs 2 dried hides, as well as 0.05 L of Linseed Oil per colour field, and various amounts of pigments depending on the colours. You also need a high enough Psyche to craft the sketch, determined by the amount of contours (0.5 PSY per contour), so complex images may be impossible for your character to craft.

After crafting the sketch, the objects to use it on need to be crafted with the sketch in your inventory. Make sure it is, because some things, such as a Shield, can be crafted without a sketch, resulting in the generic texture. To apply or reapply a sketch to a Barter Stand, hold the sketch and right-click the ownership sign. The sketch is always consumed.

These allow you to circumvent all requirements to instantly craft any image into an in-game sketch, regardless of items or psyche needed.
They can be bought for real currency from the store page.

On most things that can accept a sketch, the picture isn't just a centered square. Here are templates for some of them.

User Examples

Here are some examples of templates used by players.


  • Added in update Samhain (2015-10-29)
  • Linseed Oil is obtained by pressing Flax Seeds in an Extraction Press.
  • Because there are only 9 basic colours and no transitions, uploaded images will be simplified to the nearest matching basic colours. You can preview how they will look on in-game objects on the uploads page.
  • It is possible to preview how your art will look on things by clicking on account, upload images, and then the view button under the sketch you want to see.
  • Uploaded images must not exceed 512x512 pixels, and are stored as squares with (2^n)x(2^n) size edges, ie: 512x512, 256x256, 128x128 and so on. uploading images of different size will result in stretching/compressing to the closest dimensions.
