As the NFT scene continues to hype 10,000-piece profile picture projects, various digital artists are diligently creating and growing in the NFT space. In this weekly recap, we'll break down some of the most notable NFT Artists and their upcoming works. This week we will be featuring a top selling photography artist, an established 3D animator, and three other unique NFT artists.
After being featured last week, XCOPY decided it was a great time to release his newest collection. Coming to Nifty Gateway on March 24, XCOPY will be releasing a series entitled "Traitors Redemption."
Two pieces have been previewed thus far on his Twitter, with further details coming soon. XCOPY stated that "There will be a burn. Only Afterburn qualifies for this."

Alpha Centauri Kid
Alpha Centauri Kid, a notable 3D animator and artist, has captured the attention of some of the biggest names in NFT collecting.
For example, in August @VincentVanDough purchased "Lonely Neighborhood SpidePepe" for 46.2 ETH and ACK's most recent Foundation work "Draw me like on of your French girls" sold for 60 ETH in September.
Alpha Centauri Kid's art combines dark imagery, with crypto memes and icons such as Pepe and XCOPY. He has attracted nearly 20,000 followers on Twitter and in a recent teaser, ACK tweeted a possible PFP collection might be in the works.

Aaron Penne is a generative, digital artist specializing in engineering. Penne has been coding and creating art since 2018 and has amassed a solid following between Twitter, Archipelago, and Foundation.
In his most recent project Aaron is teaming up with FingerprintsDAO, creating what appears to be a generated series of animated kaleidoscope pieces. Planning to have a large allowlist including FingerprintDAO members and collectors of Aaron's past work, the full collection size has yet to be released.

This project is aimed at being collector-focused, meaning a large allowlist. To do our best to avoid any bots and gas wars.
