Generative Art NFTs: How to create a collection

Getting started with Generative Art NFTs

Once you’ve signed in with your wallet through WalletConnect or MetaMask, simply press “Create Now”. You will then be brought to the main dashboard, which tracks your collection sales. Scroll down until you see the “Create a New Collection” on the right. Click it, and let’s start building your Generative Art NFTs!

Creating your Generative Art NFT collection using the “Basic Drop” option

First, click on “Basic Drop”. If you have your artwork ready, simply click on “Upload Your Complete Collection,” where you’ll be able to upload up to 10,000 files and 10GB of images. Click on “Build your Collection Using Layers” to begin the layer building process.

On the left of the page, you will see three relevant sections: “Details,” “Artwork” and “Deploy.” Complete these sections, making sure to click “Save Changes” every so often, so as not to lose your work.


The Collection Details section is dedicated to the information that will help populate your final minting page, so it’s important to complete it carefully. Here you can fill in details like your collection name, ticker and subdomain.

Next, you’ll be guided towards the Launch Details section, where you can choose which blockchain to launch with, the price and the launch date. There is also an option for Advanced Settings, where you can set the maximum mints per wallet and also secondary royalties (of which takes 0% of).

The Description section is where you can talk freely about your collection in both a Short Description and a Long Description. Both of these will be public on your minting page. You can also add tags that categorise your collection, if you’d like.

The Media section is dedicated to building the layout of your minting page. You can use various building blocks to build the page however you like. At any point, you can press “Save Changes” and check our what your minting page looks like.

Finally, you can add in your Artist Details, including your name and a short bio. There is no need to dox. You can put whatever you’d like in this section. You can then add your Social Media links should you wish.


In the Artwork tab, you can upload your layers, which will use to populate your collection. You will have to ensure your traits are organised into folders including the relevant attributes. For example, bodies would be the trait and Alien, Fluffy and Human would be the attribute of that trait. Once you have organised your traits and layers, you will need to ‘compress’ all of the folders into a single zip file, which you can then upload.

Ordering your traits

Once you have uploaded your zip file, the Generator will get to work. First, let’s set the order of appearance of our traits – the bottom row should be the last layer to appear (e.g. a background), the top row should be the frontmost layer to appear. You can order the layers by drag-and-dropping.

Setting rarities

The rarity of an attribute determines how often it will appear in your collection.

You may wish for some of them to be more scarce (high rarity), or more common (low rarity). You can toggle rarities using the rarity bars for each attribute. You can also toggle the rarity at a ‘trait level’ – for example, if your NFTs can have accessories, you may not wish for accessories to be present across all NFTs.

You may also wish to make certain attributes completely unique, and selectively place them on customised NFTs further down the line – simply click ‘Reserve for 1-of-1’ – they will not automatically appear on your collection, and you’ll be able to manually edit them in to your desired NFTs in a couple of steps.

Setting rules

Rules are an easy way of telling the Generative Art Collection Interface that you wish for certain Attributes to always combine with one another, or the opposite, for them to never combine with one another. Simply choose the Attributes you wish to set a rule for, and click ‘Must Combine With‘ or ‘Cannot Combine With‘ based on what you need. Once you’re happy with that rule, simply click ‘Save’.


Once you are satisfied with your artwork, you can head to the Deploy section, where you can first, decentralise your images and metadata. This means that instead of saving your artwork in one decentralised server, we save your artwork in many decentralised servers. Essentially, this means that your art is very secure and no one will be able to edit it or delete it at any point. You won’t be able to change your images after this step, so do ensure that your artwork is correct.

Once your decentralisation is finished, you can click Deploy Contract and approve the gas fees in Metamask. Even though your art cannot be changed, you can still manage your collection including price, royalty percentage and maximum mints per wallet.

And voila! Your Generative Art NFTs are ready to share in under 5 minutes.
