Terraria Calamity Mod Players are Making Wonderful Art Together

If you’ve been on the internet for a while now, you’ve probably heard of R/Place, an experiment done by Reddit every few years where everyone can place a pixel on a shared canvas once every few minutes. This leads to much collaboration and great art, and the Terraria Calamity Mod team has put together their version of this.

This canvas is about the same size as the one on R/Place. Still, due to the lower audience of Modded Terraria players compared to the audience of the entirety of Reddit, pixels can be placed once every five seconds.

Meaning a single person could make a decently large piece of art in just a few hours rather than days or weeks.

This increased freedom of expression has led to some great pieces of art being constructed on the Calamity Canvas, and I wanted to showcase some of my favorites. Bear in mind this canvas is still going for the next week or so, and some of this art might be changed (but hopefully not destroyed) over the coming days.

Exploring The Terraria Calamity Mod Canvas

Now that you have an understanding of what’s going on over at R/Place. We should really look at the creative designs the Terraria Calamity Mod Team has come up with:


This is a somewhat deep-cut reference, but if you’re a big fan of Calamity, you might already see this sprite and laugh to yourself.

The LORDE was a joke boss added as an April fool’s update, and all he did was spin around and kill you instantly. This art is pretty accurate since all they did was scale down some art of Yharim, add googly eyes, and paste it into the game.


One of the bigger things on the entire canvas, Leviathan is one of the mid-hard mode bosses in Calamity and one of the more well-known ones, so seeing it get on this canvas is excellent, especially with an exceptionally well-made sprite, given the 32-color limitation that all art on this canvas has.

The Melee Corner

More of an assortment of several different things, the Melee Corner has been a dedicated effort with an entire group committed to making Melee weapons across the canvas.

In just this one corner, we can see the Terra Blade, Zenith, Illustrious Knives, Ark of the Ancients, and a massive Death’s Ascension, among several others.

The Slime Corner

The Slime Corner is in the bottom left of the canvas and contains many slimy little friends from many different games, not just Terraria.

You have the Squire Slime, mini King and Queen slimes from Terraria, and the slime from Dragon Quest, Minecraft, Stardew Valley, and some others like Ditto from Pokemon. It’s great.

Draedon’s Speech

While the entirety of Draedon and his exo-mechs isn’t on the canvas quite yet (and honestly, they would take up most of it), his entire monologue is there before making you pick your poison and choose which fight to tend with.

There are also all the icons we know of to choose the boss, like the worm, skull, uh, Among Us? Troll face?? I don’t remember THAT.


Finally, in the end, we have the Jungle Dragon Yharon. This piece is already big despite being just his head, so imagine if they did the entire body of this massive dragon.

Below him, we can also see the Stormbird from the Thorium mod. There are many references and great sprite art all across the canvas, so I’d recommend checking it for yourself and searching around, maybe even contributing something yourself.
