Enter for a chance to see your design on official Blade & Soul merchandise!

Join our lineup of community artists creating Blade & Soul merchandise by entering our Artisan Bazaar Design Contest.

We’re looking for merchandise designs for the upcoming orb-wielding, blackhole bending, storm-casting new class, the Astromancer! Start earning commission for every sale of your creation if you win! Read the full terms and conditions of the Artisan Bazaar Design Contest if you’re interested in participating.

Design

Using our Astromancer art above as the inspiration for your design, come up with your original concept that can be printed on T-shirts, mousepads, posters, messenger bags, and wallets. Get fancy, crazy, and explore the depths of your imagination! Your rendition can feature intricate patterns, colors, backgrounds or effects you’ve designed for the provided Astromancer character art, or you can make your own creation! You are free to design your very own Astromancer character and art or to put your unique spin on what we’ve provided—whatever you feel would look great on as a print. For what we think are great print designs, you can find the list of examples here

A high-quality Astromancer image can be found here.

As this is printed merchandise, we recommend the following when it comes to your final design:

  • Resolution should be a minimum of 300 dpi
  • Image should be rasterized using CMYK colors
