I was chatting last night with another RA fan who likes to play with Photoshop as well. I was showing her an animated gif that I really liked and wanted to try to emulate. Part of me feels like I’m being a copycat. Another part of me wants to compare what I’m doing to being a tribute band.
Tribute bands do what they do because they love the bands. They love the music of a particular band so much that they give their all to sounding and performing just like their heroes. I won’t go so far as to say that various gif makers are my heroes, but I do love what they create, enough so that I want to discover how to do it myself. So I’m not going to call myself a copycat, rather I’m a tribute Photoshopper!
The most recent gif that inspired my tribute Photoshopping can be found here. I couldn’t help but wonder how it was made. After some trial and error, here is what I came up with:
In case you can’t tell, I’m still stuck on those Comic Con photos and interviews!
