How did you find out about NFTs?
I first encountered the NFT in 2020. At that time, the news about the Nyan Kat gif, which was sold for a huge sum, was actively spreading on the Internet. At that time, I didn’t pay much attention to it and forgot about it for a while.
What made you want to start creating and minting?
At that time, I started doing 3d sculpting. I started doing these things to acquire a hobby and dilute my leisure time. Later I wanted to start monetizing my creativity and getting a job in a game dev studio. After a series of unsuccessful attempts, I remembered that story about Nyan Kat and firmly decided that I would become an NFT artist no matter what. Then I did extremely mediocre work, and after unsuccessful attempts to sell a couple of NFTs, I did not give up and left the media field for more than half a year to learn new skills and prepare a new collection. Spoiler: It also didn’t bring me sales.
What were your expectations when you started?
I thought I could easily earn money and link my life with this activity forever. I think that’s what everyone expected at that time. Over time, I began to become famous and get to know my favorite authors. Later, there was a desire to attend some exhibitions place their works in various galleries, and the desire to earn money slowly faded into the background
What did you start creating?
As I have already said, I have launched many collections, in each of which I tried to coordinate the style and improve the quality. Perhaps if I had started doing this earlier and not spent a lot of time planning and training, I would have achieved some success then. One of the first was a collection of fictional bat-like animals. Each had its own story, description, and characteristic features of the body. At the moment, I have deleted it (as well as the rest of the collections), as I consider them disgusting in execution. After a long break, I released the collection “faceless,” in which I invested various images that I visualized from my experiences for six months. Perhaps someday I will return it, but it will be a coordinated reworked and rethought work, which is better not to exist now. After it, there were many attempts to create a successful project, but they were unsuccessful. By the way, I put all the NFT on OpenSea.
How many NFTs have you sold?
At the moment, I have sold only four NFTs. Three from the currently valid collection “Sunnyside” and 1 in the recently opened marketplace “Avocadonft.”
What are your plans for the future?
At the moment, the main goal for me continues to be to increase the quality of my art. It is also important for me to gain fame in the NFT community to receive recognition from artists I admire. The financial side remains important to me, but it has ceased to be the main one for me all the time. I will continue to improve my skills, but I will not focus on creating easy-to-sell content from now on.
