You can be the perfect person to create NFTs design & sell your digital art online.

Irreplaceable tokens have had a huge impact on the digital art community. Before the arrival of NFT, artists never had the right platform to sell any of their digital creations. With all the hype surrounding these digital art works, it’s hard to resist the urge to jump in and get a share of the pie. But how do you truly become an NFT artist?

To become an NFT artist, follow these 10 steps:

Choose your art niche
Decide how you will create your art
Choose a digital art file format
Create your own digital art
Sell ​​your NFT art
Create your subscription
Be active in the NFT community
Stay consistent
Be true to yourself and your artwork
Do not give up


The creation of digital art is not new and has been in practice since the first digital art work was created in the early 1980s. It was when a computer engineer designed an art program for use by digital artist Harold Cohen. Today, creating digital art is as easy as opening a paint program, taking a picture with your mobile phone, applying a filter, posting it and publishing it to the world.
You may already be a digital artist, you may not understand it. If you take a picture with your cell phone or scribble on a document, you are already an artist. Just hone your skills.

If you want to be an NFT artist, you need to perform some basic steps. That said, becoming an NFT artist is easier than you might think, but getting more followers and staying consistent is a place where things can get rough.

1. Choose Your Art Niche

Before you embark on your long and exciting journey to become an NFT artist, you need to figure out what kind of artwork you intend to create. Having a permanent niche in digital art creation can help you improve your skills and allow your audience to understand what type of artwork you are creating.

For instance; If you are an artist who enjoys creating digital portraits of famous sports stars, then your audience will know that you love sports and create sports-related artwork. However, if one day you decide to release a digital unicorn painting, you can throw your followers away and confuse them. This can be potentially good or bad, but it’s best to stick to your style so people can learn to love or hate your work.

Choosing your art niche should be pretty simple. Maybe you already have a niche that you are creating for entertainment? It can be photographs of nature, cats, scribbles – there is no limit when choosing a niche. My main advice for creating your niche is to choose

2. Decide How You’ll Create Your Art

Once you have decided on your art niche, you need to decide how you are going to create this art. If you are a nature photographer, you may not need to buy a photo editing software. However, if you are creating something from scratch or you need to edit your art, you need to choose some kind of editing software.

Image Editing Software: If you need to create or edit digital images, NFT artists have several popular options. Adobe Illustrator, Lightroom, and Photoshop are good choices for image editing.
GIF and Pixel Art Software: Adobe Photoshop (GIF) and Piskel (Animated Sprites and Pixel Art)
Of course, there are other software that I will not mention in this article. Ultimately, the type of software you need depends on your type of art and your personal goal for your artwork.

3. Select Your Digital Art File Format

Once you have decided on the type of NFT art you want to create, you need to select the file format you want to create. This is because each type of art supports different file formats.

The following is a list of possible digital art file formats that you can use to create NFT art.

Audio: MP3, WAV

Video: MP4


In practice, you need to select the type of art you want to create, navigate from there, and choose the best file format for your needs. In addition, you can attach unlockable content to your NFT art at any time. This means that if someone buys it, they will be able to download the highest quality format they have provided. That way, you don’t have to create the token as a large file that can cause problems when properly loaded in some marketplaces.

4. Create Your Own Digital Art

Okay, now that you understand your art field, how to create art, and the file format to save it to, it’s time to create your first NFT artwork!

When creating irreplaceable art, remember that it does not need to be perfect. The most important thing you can do is to create your artwork every day. Now, just because you create new art every day does not mean you need to release new art every day. The reason you should create new art every day is to practice and to keep your creativity flowing. Take the famous NFT artist Beeple as an example; he sold a piece of art for US$69 million, including 5,000 pieces of art he created every day for 13 years!

Creating your NFT art should be a pleasant thing and something you are passionate about, because it takes time and a lot of patience to become a successful NFT artist.

5. Sell Your NFT Art

Now things are starting to become exciting! When you are ready to sell your first NFT artwork, you need to choose the market that suits your collection. There are many markets to choose from, and each market has its own advantages and disadvantages. In addition, as the world of NFT and NFT art advances, new markets will soon appear.

Following are the most common NFT marketplaces on the web 

OpenSea.io Pro: Good for beginners
Con: The catch-all for NFTs
Rarible.com Pro: Easy to mint tokens
Con: Art is hit or miss
NiftyGateway.com Pro: Premier Marketplace
Con: Must apply to be an artist and you can only deposit Nifties from collections launched on Nifty Gateway
SuperRare.co Pro: High-end pieces
Con: Slow onboarding/ must apply to be an artist

My advice when selling NFTs for the first time is to create an account on all sites and post art on simpler sites such as OpenSea and Rarible. Once the art is complete and some of the work is done, apply for artists from other sites (Nift Gateway and SuperRare) that require application reviews.
