The artwork originated from NFTLlama's love and passion for a well-known character from Marvel, Venom. Hato, who is known as operationSIN's main artist, created a Venom-inspired art piece for NFTLlama, and the relationship started from there. NFTLlama wanted to create a lore based NFT project focused on anime/manga-inspired characters to bring a passionate community together. From there, we created operationSIN.
We have a focus on ensuring the artwork captures both evil and heroic elements. We wanted the theme to be filled with "darker" colors but the artwork had to revolve around two forces fighting against each other. Instead of hero vs villain, the project emphasizes vigilantes vs villains.
