What is the Invisible Friends NFT collection?
Invisible Friends is an NFT project by digital artist Markus Magnus, part of the Random Characters (RCC) creative team. The collections by RCC contain pictures of digital NFT images of various unusual characters, each of which has its own unique story. Random Characters has previously released such successful collections of NFT pictures as SlimHoods and Mood Rollers, which allowed many investors to capitalize on NFT art.
The Invisible Friends collection, as the name suggests, is a collection of NFT animations (gif images) of invisible characters doing various things and dressed up depending on their activity. It can be, for example, a scientist, a basketball player, a surfer, a sorcerer, a thief, a fisherman, and anyone else you could imagine.
Since the collection is animated images, the characters are in constant motion. The characters are drawn quite interestingly, and with attention to detail.
Why the collection is so unique?
The collection is very popular among users and investors, and has already gained about 500 thousand followers on Twitter. Also, Invisible Friends has a fairly active Discord community with >300K followers actively discussing the project, creating fan art, suggesting new ideas, etc. A total of 5,000 animated images of Invisible Friends are planned to be released.
