The first thing to do to make an NFT is to pick out an NFT platform on which to create and sell your NFT, as well as a payment wallet, which you may need to use to pay fees and to receive payment in case you are succeeded to sell your NFT.
How To Create NFT Art in Easy Steps
1. Select an NFT Marketplace
The most popular ones are Mintable, Rarible, or OpenSea. For this guide, we’ll pick OpenSea because it’s free to join and has no moderation on the content you can list. That means you don’t have to be approved as an artist to be selling on the platform. But this also means that the marketplace is full of digital sundries nobody’s ever going to buy.
2. Set Up a Digital Wallet
The next step is to create a digital wallet to store both your cryptocurrencies and your NFTs.
It would help if you had Ether since several NFTs are created on the Ethereum blockchain. The ETH is used to pay the gas fee, the Ethereum blockchain transaction cost before listing any token you have made.
OpenSea usually recommends using the Google Chrome extension of the MetaMask cryptocurrency wallet, purchasing your ETH, and getting ready to mint NFTs.
3. Connect your wallet to an NFT platform
Once you’ve connected the ETH Wallet to OpenSea, you can go on and create your first NFT. Click on Create in the top menu, and create a collection. Fill in all the information needed, then save.
4. Create an NFT Art
Now you’re ready to start the actual minting process of a new NFT. Click on New Item, load your artwork, and give all the details you want about it. Once you’re ready to pull the trigger, click create.
Once you have added all the necessary details, including social links, updated image, description, and name, click “Create” to add your NFT to the blockchain, and this step would require ETH to pay for approval and gas fees.
Next, you can choose the payment tokens that you would like to accept for your digital art. You can also select the percentage of royalty to receive on the secondary sales of your artwork.
5. Listing Your Artwork For Sale
Once you have created your NFTs, the next thing to do is to list them for sale. You can either choose a fixed-price listing or auction and set your price.
If it is your first time creating and selling an NFT, you will have to pay a gas fee before listing your artwork.
