NFTs, or “Non-Fungible Tokens” are unique cryptocurrency tokens that are managed on the blockchain. You can imagine blockchain as a decentralized database that tracks the ownership and transaction history of each unique NFT. The main difference between NFTs and cryptocurrencies is if they are fungible or not - each cryptocurrency coin has the same value or use and is interchangeable. On the other hand, NFTs are coded to have unique IDs and other metadata that no other token can duplicate and are unique. This gives NFTs the attributes of rarity when they are connected with digital artwork or some other digital asset they carry.
1. Transferring your artwork into NFT (“Minting“)
NFT is often associated mainly with digital art such as SGI animations, 3D objects and digital drawings. However, most of the art forms can be turned (“minted”) into an NFT. For example, even an oil painting can be turned into an NFT if you have a high quality photograph of it. NFT marketplaces often require for the longer side of underlying photograph from which NFT is minted to be longer than 3000 px. Along with an NFT artists often offer the option to deliver the artwork from which NFT was minted also in physical form. We cover minting of artworks within the scope of our services for the members of NFTense Art Collective that we represent.
2. Turning art in motion
NFT often motivates traditional artists to think about their works in new ways. New technology and know-how allows static works to be transformed into a motion that highlights the important elements of the artwork. For example, Czech photographer and a member of NFTense Art Collective David Gaberle added a responsive animation to an originally static photograph in Skyscraped, which has breathed life into the photo.
There are many ways in which a work of art can be transformed into a digital version. If you are considering this option, we facilitate cooperation with animators, CGI artists and other specialists who can help you choose and implement the most appropriate method of turning your static artwork into motion making it more attractive on the crypto art landscape.
3. Turning art into 3D
Another process that can have a use case in art is turning 2-dimensional artwork into a 3-dimensional model, be it a photo or other media format. We offer to facilitate a cooperation with industry professionals that will turn the underlying work into a 3D model.
