With the RealDogePunks, Mandarinemarie combined the famous meme Doge with the very early beginnings of digital art. For the artist, every Pixel was equivalent to the point of a brush. To break art down to a very clean concept, she only used 30×30 Pixel and set herself just a small space within she created unique PFPs.
The RealDogePunks collection consists of 10,000 generative pixel art pieces made from 256 traits with a high variety of occurrences on 17 unique backgrounds. They found their perfect home on DogeChain, a Layer 2 for Dogecoin.
The origins of RealDogePunks on DogeParty
In November 2021 Mandarinemarie began minting single hand made RealDogePunks Pixel Art NFTs on DogeParty with this little fella.
The first RealDogePunks were born in November 2021 on DogeParty. 43 unique hand made RealDogePunks were created in a timespan of nine months. The DogeParty community was enthusiastic about every new RealDogePunk being born and scooped them up quickly. But Mandarinemarie was not in a rush. She took her time and only when a great new inspiration came up, the collection grew for another piece.

I've also scooped a small stack of @RealDogePunks and a few other NFTs onchain. If @DogechainFamily does take off, some of these could end up being very valuable, and currently, they are mostly $100 or less.
also just a fan of these… pic.twitter.com/ZgWHobZwct
