Know anyone who still says an iPad can’t be used for content creation? If you do, go ahead and show them this unbelievable painting of actor Morgan Freeman. Completely done on an iPad, artist Kyle Lambert used Procreate and his finger. The work took more than 200 hours and consisted of an amazing 285,000 brush strokes. Don’t believe me? Than take a look at this time lapse video which shows every second of painting in under four minutes. Click here if you can’t see the video. If it wasn't for the video, I’d have an enormously hard time believing the painting was real. Talking with Ice Flow Studios, Lambert said he took on the project to see how far he could push the 4K canvas size that Procreate allows for:
“I recently discovered that it was possible to create incredibly high resolution (4k) paintings using only my iPad, and I wanted to see just how far I could push digital artwork and paint a true photorealistic portrait. I started with a blank white screen and began capturing Morgan Freeman’s likeness, quickly painting the broad strokes with my finger, I then reduced the brush size to a few pixels, pinched to zoom and carefully painted in the fine detail."You can see more of Lambert’s work on his site.
