Slider, Isabelle, Apollo, Daisy, Rosie, Bunnie, and more.
This adorable wallpaper features adorable chibi renditions of many of the most popular Animal Crossing villagers and characters. Villagers featured in this art by talented artist Ida, many of which are considered “dreamies” by the Animal Crossing community, include Dom, Merengue, Tia, and other fan favorites.
Before a similar feature was added to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in it’s 2.0 update, there was Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, a charming 3DS title that let you decorate fantastic vacation homes for villagers. We love the simplistic vibe of this wallpaper featuring gorgeous watercolor-inspired artwork from the game.
Some of Animal Crossing’s most popular villagers are its colorful assortment of cats, and we can totally see why. This gorgeous art by the infinitely talented artist saino_m, features many of these favorites, including Raymond, Mitzi (my personal favorite), Ankha, Tangy, and the iconic Bob.
This cute wallpaper stars Timmy and Tommy Nook, accompanied by their Nook Inc. co-workers Isabelle and Tom Nook, against the familiar leaf logo that adorns their company’s aloha shirts as well as the logo for Tom Nook’s business efforts.

Another fantastic piece of work by saino_m, this kooky Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ art depicts the artist’s amusing and creative idea for the origin of villager Ribbot, who they believe was built in a laboratory by hamster villager Graham.
