NFTs of apes and cyber punks are cool and all - but getting a custom portrait NFT of someone you know is even cooler.
It is like commissioning traditional art, but for NFTs.
For example, you might want to turn a photo of someone into an NFT.
There are many NFT artists available for commission that you can hire to create the best NFT based on your request.
Here is an easy 5-step guide on how to get a custom NFT made for you.
To get matched with the right NFT artist for your custom NFT request and see pricing, start a request on the MadeMay marketplace and select “NFT”.
Different artists have different specialities in terms of subject matter, so you want to choose the NFT subject type that you like the best.

This is similar to traditional (non-NFT) art where you see some artists specializing in landscapes, whereas other artists specialize in pet portraits.
Since each NFT is made-to-order and tailored to your request, it is important to describe how you envision your soon-to-be NFT.
In this step, you upload an image for the artist to use as reference. You might upload a photo of the person or thing you are getting turned into an NFT, or you might upload photos of other ideas you have as inspiration.
In the text area, you can include any specific request, such as the colors you would like used.
Based on your request and answers, you will be shown a relevant listing of NFT artists that are available to fulfill your request for a custom NFT. Each artist has their own profile, so you can see their previous NFT artwork as well as learning a little bit about the artist.
Plus, you will see side-by-side pricing to make sure you’re getting a good deal.
After you place an order (requires 25% upfront payment), your artist is notified and will be in touch within 48 hours to let you know they are starting your NFT.
Once the NFT is finished and approved, the actual NFT ownership is transferred off-platform, meaning your artist will provide directions on how you can receive ownership.
