Posted March 1, 2017 by Etaew (PC) and viewed 2,103 times.

No, not that kind of T-shirt contest! Every few months we send over a package of T-Shirts to the Trove developers, this month we are encouraging artists to submit images that they would like to see the devs wear.


  • Create Trove related fan art that is appropriate to be worn on a tshirt
  • Submit to the Trovesaurus Gallery with the tag T-Shirt Contest
    • If you want to re-submit older work you have done, please try and make it as suitable for a T-Shirt as you can


  • All work must be your own
  • Screenshots, builds, and manipulated images from the internet are not permitted
  • Please sign your work with your character name or online handle to help identify it as yours and original


  • If you contact me in Discord, I can give you a preview of how the T-Shirt will look with an image you send.
  • I may need to contact you further if we need to edit the image to appear on a T-Shirt.
  • Full dimensions of the square are 2100 x 2100 pixels, but you dont need to use them all!


  • Wednesday, March 1, 2017 to Monday, April 24, 2017 *extended


  • x winners chosen by the Dev Team will have their T-Shirt design sent to the devs
  • 6 winners will be chosen by Trovesaurus to receive 3 Reward Tokens
  • 12 entries chosen at random will receive 1 Reward Token

Rewards will be distributed through the Trovesaurus Rewards system. Reward amounts are subject to change based on participation.


Here are some of the previous T-shirts we've sent, and lessons we've learned.

  • Make your images transparent when you can
  • Always design for black background, it's basically the only option they go for
  • Alignment is always awkward

Editable area:

Try to have defined edges to your images, things get weird when they blend into the background.

If you have a solid background, try to prettify the edges so it appears less harsh.

If you have a dark background, you can try to lighten it
