Real-life portraits done with an iPad




The Apple iPad may just be a portable computing device for most of us, but in the hands of a gifted artist like Kyle Lambert, it can be a medium to make stunning and near-identical portraits using only fingers and a drawing app.

If you look closely at the image above, you’d think that the picture was shot by a professional portrait photographer inside a studio. And while that’s partly true, the picture you’re looking at is actually a hand-made replica of the original image that was shot by Scott Gries.


 

Here’s a short time lapse of how the UK-based oil-painter and illustrator did Morgan Freeman’s portrait using his iPad and Procreate app:

The self-proclaimed “World’s most realistic finger-painting” artist has had numerous projects in the past (which you can view on his YouTube page and website) but his latest one (the Morgan Freeman portrait) is by far the best we’ve seen thus far. Hat’s off to Kyle Lambert for his amazing work and for reminding us that there’s more to our tablets than playing Candy Crush and leeching off of malls’ free Wi-Fi hotspots.

      How about performance? Microsoft Surface Pro 2 beats the hell out of those stupid underpowered tablets anytime of the day. LOL

    • copyCatDroid says:

      Performance? Oh, yes. I love to run Windows defender on the background. While my anti virus scanning my Surface Pro 2. And btw, task manager ? You bet ! I love to hear those things. You never learned in your PC experience.

      @CopyCatDroid
      I feel sorry for you because the things you have said are things that even the most basic user could do! A fool like you should not be using a powerful device like Surface Pro 2!

      How about you use it for MATLAB? Debugging with Visual Studio? Run scripts with Windows PowerShell? Manage desktops with RDP? Run virtualized OS with Hyper-V? All the things you’ve said you’re doing in your Surface Pro 2 is so basic. Duh!

    Slow news today, eh?
    Can’t believe that YugaTech has now turned into a poop thanks to these copy-paste whore contributors.

      I think its more like that a certain abuzalzal plagued the whole comment section with mindless fucktard comments.

      Create your own site and be happy with that you fuckwit.

    Hahaha! It’s amazing what the marketing guys of Apple would resort to just to sell their crappy iPads. It’s obviously a FAKE! Until you do not see the time-lapse video of the actual artist, with his actual fingers at work on the iPad, then this is nothing but a rubbish graphic overlay rip-off.

    Kahit na cheap ang ginamit kong video camera sa sobrang labo (Nokia 5320). I made pa rin para ilabas ko yung idea ko.

    Wag naman sanang okrayin pati yung video editing, eh sa 5320 Phone ko rin yan inedit eh. :)

    This video actually circulated already in most digital artists forums (2d/3d). It’s actually a fake. Reverse engineered. Cool trick though.
