Update (17 Jan 2022)
The winners have been drawn. Well done and thanks to everyone that entered this giveaway. Stay tuned for more exciting giveaways soon!!
The world of NFT’s is exploding, and after Collins Dictionary recently announced that NFT was the word of the year for 2021, it looks like 2022 may be the year for NFT’s to explode!
Although the South African NFT scene still seems to growing slowly, we recently came across an exciting new project from a South African NFT Development team called Heads On A Platter. The project is headed up (no pun intended :P) by South African Internet veteran Vincent Maher, who is currently doing all the designs and publishing himself.
We giving away 4 of these awesome pieces of uniquely designed NFTs! (Giveaway at the end of the post)
The collection will eventually consist of 999 uniquely designed Heads that are served on Platters, each with their own story of how they finally succumbed to their death!
For example, #028 – Mrytle, seemed to be a nosy and hateful old duck, who was eventually celebrated with the biggest wake since the 70’s! Some of the stories are hilarious, and some are rather morbid 🙂
The team also put together quite a detailed Twitter thread on how the pieces are hand created and how the names and stories of each individual NFT is created.
I had some offline questions about the tools and methods for making these NFTs so thought I'd share a bit about the process.
All the 3D modelling happens in MagicaVoxel by @ephtracy – this is an absolutely amazing free voxel art app.#NFT #NFTCommunity #NFTartists
