If you are part of the ALGO NFT community or have sneaked in the Twitter accounts of NFT collectors, you have probably found tags or mentions to @alienprideart. Frequently, these mentions are accompanied by comic art of gorgeous alien girls. But, do you really know what is behind the APA project? Why join the APA community as a holder?
I decided to write this APA White Paper to spot some light and discover the project to ALGO NFT collectors.
FIRST OF ALL: COMIC ART
Most of the most relevant projects on the ALGO Blockchain are collections generated by scripts. Many of the most successful projects are PFP layer-generated collections that combine different traits to create 1k-3k exclusive images.
When I landed in the ALGO Blockchain, I was tempted to do the same: create many images based on the same character, only changing attributes –you can find that in previous versions of Alien Selfie #1 and Alien Selfie #4.
But soon, I changed my mind. Even if these collections were trendy, each variant had little artistic value.
I am a comic artist, and I enjoy drawing, so I transformed and adapted APA collections to offer the collectors artistic value in each different NFT, something they were proud to own.
Now, each of my artworks and variants has been carefully hand-drawn, with the love and dedication of a real artist, not a CPU.
TRANSPARENCY AND ORIGINAL ART.
NFT World is full of art theft. Several cases have recently appeared that have set off the alarms of collectors, especially those who have seen how the projects disappeared and with them their money and investments.
It’s time to be transparent about the art process and creation to earn the supporter’s trust.
I am proud to show my drawing process live to those who join the APA discord server: from searching for inspirational and reference images to finishing and lighting.
Also, they can ask for art tips and questions in the artroom channels – exclusive for APA supporters.
They are sure my art is original step by step and that there is a real artist behind the artwork’s creation.
Team? Ah, ok. That’s when two or more people join for a project. In the beginning, APA could be a one-person team project. My artist name is alienprideart, and I am responsible for art creation, marketing, communication, and everything related to the project. Nice to meet you.
But I am not alone on this ship. This project wouldn’t be real without the support of fans and holders.
So, I take their participation in our Discord server very seriously and have created a rewards plan and different exclusive perks for them.
Holding an APA NFT makes you a part of our community and our project.
I have four different collections currently ongoing. Why four? First of all, as I have told you before, I am an artist, and I draw as I am inspired, so I tried to classify my artworks by categories. And then, I know collectors like exclusive original paintings and also PFP collections, so I offer them different alternatives:
It’s my first collection composed of Comic art close-ups of gorgeous alien girls. It has evolved in the last months, looking for a minting that matches collectors’ expectations.
Most of them are 5/5 minted Originals + 1 Ultra rare variant (1/1 minted)
Alien Boba Original is a cute illustration of a sexy alien girl drinking a boba. It is a SUPER-EXCLUSIVE collection composed of 50 EXCLUSIVE ULTRARARE 1/1 minted artworks, completely redrawn with different cosplay outfits.
Alien Pride Fan Art
It includes 26 Fan Art illustrations of different alien races from the most relevant comics, movies, and TV show franchises.
They are cheap collectibles that you can get to win most valuable ones, focused on bringing more sci-fi lovers to the APA family.
It will include four different sets:
- White Set 26 Cards 25/25.
- Silver Set 26 cards 5/5: ONLY white card owners will have access to the silver card shuffle.
- Black Set 26 cards 3/3: Last chance to participate in the golden card shuffle.
- Gold Set 26 cards 1/1 (Not for sale): Silver and Black Card card owners will have access to the GOLD card shuffle.
A comic art collection of scenes inspired by the legends, stories, and archives of Elearis and the United Planets Confederation, written by AlienPrideArt alter ego.
One of the fan’s favorites is made up of Originals (3/3 minted) for collectors with occasional 1/1 exclusive variants.

THE APA WILDLIFE FUND
Most of the artists focus their charity efforts on forest repopulation (and that’s awesome). But, now more than ever, this planet needs human AND ALIEN allies for protection from pressing threats like illegal wildlife trade, deforestation, climate change, and water scarcity. That’s why we just joined the WWF PANDA NATION with our APA Fund project.
Mainly, APA Fund is a Panda Nation Fundraising project designed to collect funds to preserve protected animal species. 5% of ALL APA DIRECT SALES and 80% of the Charity Auctions will go monthly to the Panda Nation Fundraising.
