Today in class, I created my very own GIF featuring deceased Rap Artist… Notorious B.I.G or Biggie Smalls. I chose Biggie Smalls as one of my many inspirations because Biggie was an icon during his time by creating his own raps and representing for all East Coast rappers in the game. Even though, Biggie was shot and killed before I could comprehend what Rap even was at my young age. My older brother actually put me onto Rap and Hip-Hop and I started listening to Biggie, Tupac, N.W.A., Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog and etc. Biggie Smalls is a legend in the Rap Industry and his memory will continue to live on.
Creating my first GIF using Photoshop was a lot of work and steps to make sure that I followed Ryan’s instructions to the T so that I can get used to applications such as Photoshop especially considering that I’m a beginner. Although, it was many steps to follow, the end result of my GIF came out really cool. I would love to create another one using someone else but I’m not too confident in myself to create a different one without help or step-by-step instructions.
