NFTs: How to Make NFT Art

With some creators making millions off NFTs, it’s understandable why you’d want to try your hand at it and make your own NFT art.  Here’s how to go about it. 

But before we get to the desired point, let’s understand some of the basics of what an NFT is. 

What are NFTs?

Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are a trending type of digital asset secured by cryptography. NFTs can represent anything – from commodities like gold and silver to digital items like music, art, photos, and even tweets. There are also NFTs that come in the form of digital assets like virtual land, in-game items, and more. Each NFT is seen as a unique entity and can be bought and sold as a way to show ownership over some sort of digital file. 

NFTs are created using a particular type of cryptography known as ERC721. This is a custom Ethereum protocol that allows for the creation of unique tokens. Each NFT is encoded on the blockchain with a particular identifier that is never duplicated.

When you create an NFT, you are minting a new token with its unique value. You can use it to represent anything you want. NFTs can also contain smart contracts that may give you a cut of future sales, making them very useful for artists, musicians, and others who want to create limited edition digital collectibles.

What you’ll need to make NFT art:

  • Choose a wallet compatible with your blockchain choice (e.g., Metamask for Ethereum)
  • You need to fund your wallet. If you choose Metamask, make sure you have it funded with ETH
  • Sign-up for an account on an NFT marketplace like Opensea

How to Make NFT Art?

Follow these simple steps to make your NFT art:

1. Register for a free account on the NFT minting website

OpenSea is a beginner-friendly platform for first-time creators to make NFT art. In fact, OpenSea has a lazy mint option that allows artists to mint their NFT artwork and add it to your list for sale on the site without paying gas fees. When the collector buys it, they will pay the gas fees in your stead.

Go to Opensea and create an account. Once you have completed the creation of a free account on the marketplace (e.g., OpenSea), you will access the minting page. On the minting page, you will need to enter the following information:

  • The name of your NFT token
  • The symbol of your NFT token
  • The required amount of tokens you want to mint
  • The description of your NFT token

Click on the mint button, and your NFTs will be created!

2. Deposit some Ether into your account

To get started with NFTs, you will need to deposit Ether (ETH) into your account. Ether is the main currency used on the Ethereum blockchain to mint NFT tokens.

Once you have deposited Ether into your account, you can mint your NFTs tokens. Follow these steps:

Click on the “Create New Token” button. Enter the following information:

  • Name of your NFTs: This can be anything you want
  • Symbol: This is what your token will be called and can be any letters or numbers
  • Decimal Places: This is how many decimals places your token will have. The default is eight, but you can choose any number you want.

Click on the “Create” button.

Your new NFTs token will be created and added to your account. You can now send and trade your NFTs with other people who also have them!

3. Select the “Create New NFT” tab to make your NFT art

Once you have selected the “Create New NFT” tab, you will be given a form to fill out to create your new NFT token.

In the “Token Name” field, you will need to enter a name for your new token. This can be anything you want, but it is recommended that you use something that will quickly remind you about the token.

In the “Description” field, you will need to enter a brief description of your new token. This could be anything from what it represents to why you created it.

In the “Symbol” field, you must enter a symbol for your new token. In the “Amount” field, you will need to enter the number of tokens you want to create. 

In the “Decimals” field, you will need to enter the number of decimal places your new token will use.

In the “Address” field, It is required for you to enter the address of the Ethereum wallet you want to use to create your new token.

Click on the “Create New NFT” button to make your NFT tokens.

Once you have clicked on the “Create New NFT” button, your new NFT token will be created and added to the Nft Exchange website. You will be able to view information about your new token by clicking on the “View” tab.

4. Enter the details of your new NFT Token

Suppose you are minting new NFT tokens. Let’s call the collection “Wildebeests.” There are only 100 of them, worth 0.02ETH each.

Click “Create.”

You will be directed to a new page after clicking the “Generate New NFT” button, where you can create personalized NFT token.

Next, you will need to select the symbol for your NFT. This can be any character you want, but it must be between 3 and 8 characters long.

Then, you will need to choose the number of NFTs you want to create. You can create anywhere from 1 to 10,000,000 NFT.

The final step is to set the expiration date for your NFT. You can choose to have them expire immediately, in 1 day, in 7 days, in 1 month, or one year.

Once you have finished filling out all of the information, click the “Create NFT” button, and your NFTs will be created.  You will see the NFTs listed in the “Token” tab. You can also view information about it, such as the total number of NFTs that has been minted, the date and time it was created, and more.

To send your new token to someone, simply copy the “Token Address” and send it to them. They will redeem it for goods or services or exchange it for other NFTs.

5. Selling your NFT

After minting, it’s time to list your NFT for sale. Set your NFT in USD, ETH, or any other cryptocurrency listed on OpenSea. Once the funds are deposited into your OpenSea account, you can then withdraw the funds to your wallet or purchase other NFTs on the platform.
