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.
