What’s unique about this portrait? Right! It’s a painting of Hollywood star Morgan Freeman. Oh wait! It’s a painting made on an iPad. 26-year-old artist Kyle Lambert has created a mind-boggling finger painting of Mr. Freeman. It’s hard to identify his piece if placed with the real photograph.
It took him one month and 285,000 finger strokes on his iPad to complete the painting. With the use of an application called Procreate, he reduced the brush size to only a few pixels for extra precision. This enabled him to zoom in to apply stroke after stroke, producing the amazing, photo-like portrait. Critics are however cynical about the realism of Lambert’s work. They have pointed out that apps like Procreate allow people to add visuals and set them as paintings.
