Morgan Freeman, the famed American actor, was the subject of a portrait produced by Kyle Lambert on an iPad, according to Yahoo! News on Tuesday.
The incredibly life-like portrait of Freeman was drawn from a photograph taken by Scott Gries.
The extremely impressive and detailed drawing by the 26-year-old artist who lives in Cheshire, England, involved 285,000 brush strokes. It took Lambert more than 200 hours to complete the project. It is reported that Lambert did the minute details, including the hairs in Freeman’s beard as well as producing his lips, were done with his fingers. To get such precision, the artist said he reduced the brush size to a few pixels, pinching to zoom and carefully painting in the fine details of the portrait.
Additionally, Lambert produced a time-lapse video of the project. He used a feature in the Procreate app which allows one to capture an event - such as this painting session – over time. The 3-minute video Lambert created has reportedly been viewed on YouTube more than a million times in 24 hours.
