We’re back with another project in this month’s Proton May #BetterNFTs campaign. As a reminder, our goal is to introduce the incredibly talented creators behind the projects you know and love to help you learn more about the Proton ecosystem.
As part of the campaign, we publish a ‘Meet The Creators’ interview everyday, alongside an NFT giveaway from that creator, so you can learn more about their project, the inspiration behind each series, what’s next for them, and why they chose Proton.
Don’t forget: Proton allows users to mint NFTs instantly and without paying gas fees. Intelligent smart contracts ensure that creators earn royalties on future sales of their NFTs, allowing a pathway for artists to continue to earn income from their creations. And because Proton Market has an open-source template, talented creators can customize their own storefront to create a truly unique experience for their communities.
Please meet the team from another community favorite project, OwlNoctun!
Meet The Creators – OwlNoctun
Tell us a little bit about yourself, and your background before getting into NFTs?
My name is Budy and I am an artist from Indonesia.
Drawing is my passion since I was very young.
I often represent drawing competitions for school. In junior high school, I started to often draw faces using pencil on paper.
Then, In high school, I started to learn to draw using photoshop, photo editing and photo manipulation and I learned photoshop on my own from google and youtube.
How were you introduced to NFT’s?
I was introduced to proton by one of my friends.
Why did you choose Proton Blockchain to host your collection?
Because I couldn’t afford to pay gas on other markets, and when my friend told me that there was no gas fee on the proton, I decided to give it a try. It was one of the most beautiful days of my life, especially because since 5 minutes after the first list, my #1 NFT was sold.
Tell us about your collection and the inspiration?
I chose Owls because they are unique and I feel that it is difficult to draw them because of the feathers. I like to draw only difficult pieces. Simple drawings would bore me
