With the influx of mobile technology comes a whole new realm of software, programs, and avenues that one can take for all of their digital solutions. Not even half a decade ago, no one would have ever imagined a device so advanced as a tablet or even a smart phone for that matter. But now it is common knowledge, even infants know how to operate them.
Twenty-six-year-old Kyle Lambert has pushed technology to the limits. His most recent project, a portrait of Morgan Freeman, looks so realistic that one must watch the video to believe that it was all done by hand…more suprisingly, on an iPad. He starts with a blank canvas and lays down the broad strokes, then reduces his brush size to paint in the more fine detail.
Lambert, a painter with a degree in illustration and animation, discovered that it was possible to create high-resolution paintings using only his iPad and his finger. With the help of an app called “Procreate“, Kyle spent over 200 hours, and over 280K brush strokes to complete his newest project. A feature within the app allowed him to create a time-lapse video of the countless hours of his work, which we see demonstrated in a little under four minutes.
Procreate is an advanced illustration app designed for mobile devices that gives its users the ability to transform their iPad into a mini art-studio. Included within its features are a variety of tools, brushes, oils, and even the ability to customize your own tools, all the while delivering an image up to 4K in quality.
Morgan Freeman was not the only celebrity Lambert has chosen to Illustrate. Kyle was also known for the popular photo of Beyonce he create a while back as well. More of his work can be viewed here.
