About

Though some may disagree with the methods of the divine, those born under Teyvat's sky look to the heavens in search of the constellations which guide them on their journey through the night. The collections of stars hint at the fate of those below, but only time will tell how much significance their light truly holds.


Teyvat Sky is a Genshin Impact constellation-themed charity artbook. It will feature the playable characters of Genshin as well as their corresponding constellations.

Each artist will be assigned a character based on listed preferences and create an art piece based on the character's constellation name. For example, since Albedo's constellation is called Princeps Cretaceus or "Chalk Prince", the artist would aim to incorporate this theme.

The artbook will be gen, SFW, and canon-compliant. The zine will not feature excessive gore, however minor blood or injuries may be depicted.

We are currently planning to include art, merch, horoscopes, and other astrology-themed pieces. We are looking for a variety of content outside of just art pieces and merch, so we encourage creativity in your applications!

Mod Team

Teddy - Head Mod (She/Her, 24)

If they have an anemo or a geo vision, they’re probably one of her favorite characters. She has moderated several projects such as the SunaOsa Valentine’s Exchange, the Haikyuu WLW Bang, and the Avatar Baang. She is also currently the head mod for Ace of Hearts: An Ojiro Aran Fanzine and the Xiaoven Exchange.

Fei - Design (She/Her, 25)

Her favourite character is hands down that dude in liyue standing on a rock because he's scared of dogs....because honestly, same. NPC rights. She is currently the graphics mod for Ace of Hearts: An Ojiro Aran Fanzine and the Xiaoven Exchange. Genshin lore is her favourite thing about the game (besides the pretty clouds...) and she's super excited to dive into the character constellations!!

Jane - Organization (She/Her, 24)

In theory, she’s a pyro vision stan, but in practice, she likes anemo visions and plays with electro elemental resonance, because Beidou is the coolest and she likes Fischl’s aesthetic. She is currently the writer mod for Ace of Hearts: An Ojiro Aran Fanzine and has several years of experience in event organisation, particularly through managing social events and coordinating teams.

Kit - Communications (She/Her, 20)

At one point, her whole team was made of pyro characters, and she'll continue to claim it as her favourite vision until the end of time. What she lacks in game skills she makes up for in enthusiasm about the characters and world lore. She has previously modded the Kuroken Christmas Exchange, and is currently a mod for the Xiaoven Exchange, the Kuroken Big Bang and the Ace of Hearts zine!

En - Shipping (She/They, 20)

She's a Zhongli main so she doesn't know how to dodge ;;; and she used to whack trees to make sunsettias and apples fall so she's glad she can get wood out of them now anshajshsjs. She has been a merch and page artist in 5 zines ! Currently merch and shipping mod for KNB: Shoot your Shot Zine + shipping/finance/production mod for Bushido no Hana Haikyuu zine.

Viv - Graphics Intern (He/She/They, 20)

A firm believer in Electro and Pyro Supremacy and lover of all things red. They're currently an artist in 6 in-production zines with 30 under their belt, having done previous graphic design for Limerence, a Kacchako zine. Once upon a time she also modded the Klance Klance Big Bang Server.

FAQs

What is the theme of this zine?

Teyvat Sky is a gen, SFW, and canon-compliant artbook. The theme is based on the constellations of Teyvat and the significance they hold for those born under their light, specifically the playable characters of Genshin Impact.

Will all playable characters be featured in the artbook?

We’d love to feature all currently playable characters if possible. However, since we’ll be taking artist preferences into account, we can’t guarantee every character will be included. This being said, we are looking for a diverse group of contributors who can assist us in bringing as many of Teyvat’s wonderful heroes (and villains) to the page as we can.

Are there any minors on the mod team?

No. All mods are aged 18 and above.

Will minors be able to contribute?

Minors aged 16+ may apply as contributors.

Can we feature ships in our piece?

Since this will be a gen zine, we will not be allowing ships in contributor pieces. Implied is generally okay, but please make sure it can be interpreted as platonic.

How will contributors be compensated?

All contributors will receive a free copy of the physical artbook.

Will there be merch?

Yes! Merch will be revealed in the time leading up to preorders.
