Sir Anthony Hopkins, an 84-year-old Oscar-winning and renowned Hollywood actor and artist, recently partnered with Orange Comet, a web 3.0-based company, to launch an NFT collection that will exhibit his works as an artist.
Details of Anthony Hopkins’ New NFT Collection
Anthony Hopkins’ new NFT project “The Eternal Collection” consists of three drops focused around a series of 10 virtual animations of Hopkins.
These animations digitally represent different Jungian character archetypes that the actor has showcased throughout his movie career. The designs will also involve some of John Hopkins’ work as a painter.
The inspiration for the NFT project comes from the classic archetype of the theme of the collection that Hopkins partnered with Orange Comet to create.
The animation will also consist of hyper-realistic images of Anthony Hopkins’ face which include the Rebel, the Sage, the archetype Hero, the magician, the lover, the explorer, the giver, the jester, and the creator.
Furthermore, for each of the10 animations, there will be an exclusive release of 100 Profile Picture (PFP) variants for their Jungian character theme making it a sum of 1000 unique NFTs in the PFP part of the drop.
Also, Orange Comet will be auctioning a one-of-a-kind NFT which consists of a distinct edition of all the 10 characters merged into a single piece.
In a press conference, Anthony Hopkins shared that NFTs are a blank canvas to turn art into a new format. The Metaverse also provides an opportunity to interact with an audience in a new way.
He also said that he is probably the oldest guy in the NFT space and on social media which shows that anything is possible at any age.

The release of Hopkins’ new NFT collection will take three in three phases.
The first phase, “Iconic Category” consists of all the archetype characters combined. The winner of the bid gets this and a framed NFT art print signed by Anthony Hopkins and a one-on-one launch with the actor.
