Artist Paints Incredible Picture Of Morgan Freeman On iPad Air

/ 3 years ago


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.
