Take a good look at that above picture of Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman.

Now brace yourself.

It’s not a photograph.

It’s a fingerpainting of the actor done on an iPad.


This amazing life-like portrait was done by British artist Kyle Lambert, who has done some other incredible work with just his finger, an iPad and a program called Procreate. You can see his other work at his site.

To the left is a time-lapse video that shows the making of the painting.
