The Internet is a great way for things to be shared among millions of people around the world and for others to talk about them. Nowadays though, not much shocks the world anymore. That isn't true on Dec. 3, 2013, as WebProNews reports an amazingly lifelike portrait of actor Morgan Freeman that was done by finger painting on an iPad.
Artist Kyle Lambert decided to have a little fun with his iPad Air and see what he could d with it. No-one expected him to be able to draw an incredibly lifelike portrait of the famous actor as it is a photograph.
Lambert is a trained oil painter and illustrator so he is no stranger to art. He did say that the picture of Morgan Freeman took about a month to create and he did it by using the Procreate application.
"It captures every brush stroke automatically and you can export it to the camera roll," Lambert explained. "It has the best canvas size and and video export. It’s the most like Photoshop."
Some have said that apps like Procreate make it very easy to add on to images or photos that are already in place. Lambert filmed his creation of the Morgan Freeman picture, but some are still saying that his step-by-step process is actually being played backwards.
There is much more work online and on YouTube showing Lambert's past work so maybe he can prove them wrong.
