After many months of hard work, we’re excited to announce our unique NFT avatar project, Omnimorphs!
About the project
Most of you probably know the so-called “10K” project format very well, so feel free to skip this part if you do. For who doesn’t, however:
Omnimorphs is a generative NFT collectible project of 10.000 unique, digitally hand-drawn avatars immortalized on the Ethereum blockchain.
We generate 10.000 variations of Omnimorph characters from a pool of hand-drawn traits. Traits have varying rarities, and as an effect, so does each individual piece. We then tokenize these artworks on an ERC-721 smart contract on Ethereum.
If you’re not sure what the last bit means, check out this resource.
What are Omnimorphs
The character is from a fictional universe where humans share the earth with a race of mysterious, shapeshifting entities called Omnimorphs.
Omnimorphs are mimics, but not only in the physical sense — they also seem to be able to grasp and copy the abstractions of human culture.
They live elusively and observe us from a distance. Omnimorphs form meta-societies in which they act out the same habits, customs, and rituals that bind human societies together. However, no one knows if it means anything to them or it’s all just hollow mimicry.
While they’re completely peaceful, their sheer existence is like an eerie reflection of humanity, a constant awkward, inquisitive stare that makes one squirm with discomfort.
The aura of eeriness and grandeur surrounding Omnimorphs represents the signature style of Daniel Taylor, the amazing artist behind the project.
While there is a daunting amount of 10K avatar projects out there, we firmly believe that the vision we’ve formulated for this project throughout the months will make us stand out.
We’ve distilled our understanding of what makes such a project unique and successful into three main points.
Making the artwork truly unique
We went through countless iterations of the concept and the character before arriving at the final version of Omnimorphs.
We wanted to create a character that was still human-like but with an exciting twist. We feel like we did a pretty good job, although the jury is still out on that one.
The artwork in its final form is a blend of many things we all love: sci-fi, tribal, retro-futurism, cyberpunk, comics, anime, etc., with a slight touch of grungy VHS aesthetics.
Playing the long game
We’ve had tons of fun working on this project over the past few months, and we’re thrilled about the possibility of turning it into a full-time gig.
We have thousands of ideas about possible future directions to take the project, be it adding extra on-chain mechanics, diving deeper into the fictional universe, or setting foot in the metaverse.
If we’re lucky enough that Omnimorphs will be well received, we will do our best and more to see these ideas through to completion.
