It’s not Morgan Freeman‘s photo, it’s a painting completely made through an iPad finger-painting app by a 26-year-old visual artist in Cheshire, England, named Kyle Lambert.
The Morgan Freeman iPad finger-painting time-lapse video was uploaded in Lambert’s YouTube account on Monday, December 2, 2013 and has gone viral. It has now been viewed more than 1.9 million times as of this posting. It even got over 55 thousand shares to Facebook and Twitter via Mashable.
Lambert told Mashable that he spent a month to create Morgan Freeman‘s portrait using just the iPad Air and the app Procreate.
“It captures every brush stroke automatically and you can export it to the camera roll. It has the best canvas size and video export. It’s the most like Photoshop,” Lambert explained as quoted from Mashable.
ABC News reported that this is not the first video showing of Lambert’s iPad painting talent. In 2010, his iPad painting of Beyonce also spread around the Web. He said he hopes that his videos will “inspire other budding artists to embrace digital art.”
However, some skeptics claim that the time-lapse video showing Lambert’s iPad painting talent is fake. It was said that the apps like Procreate make it easy to add on to images that are already there and that the video featuring Lambert’s step-by-step iPad painting of Morgan Freeman is simply played backwards.
Here is the video of Kyle Lambert‘s Morgan Freeman iPad painting. It’s for you to decide whether it is fake or not.
