I don’t normally swing for this kind of news story, but I was just too impressed not to share this one with the world. The picture you see above is not a photo of Morgan Freeman, but is actually the work of Kyle Lambert. The digital portrait was created by handed on the Apple iPad air and while it’s a great way for the artist to show off his abilities, it’s also a testament to the iPad airs touch screen display.

Using an app called “Procreate”, Kyle Lambert finger-painted the image of a period of 200 hours, using 285,000 brush strokes to end up with the result we see in the video below.

Speaking to ninemsn, he said: “I’ve found with past videos people are more engaged when the subject is familiar to them. I think I must have been watching the movie Oblivion when the idea of Morgan Freeman came to mind.”

I can’t paint a convincing tree let alone a photo-realistic face, but Lambert has created many pictures of famous faces similar to this one, so he has had plenty of practice.

    Skillfully as it is, the video of this painting is nothing but a reverse order maniputation of a photography of Morgan freeman. Skillfully, yes. Painting no.
