A picture of Morgan Freeman has taken the Internet by storm, but paparazzi had nothing to do with all the buzz. The amazing photorealistic portrait making headlines was created on an iPad using a finger-painting app.

Kyle Lambert, an artist from the U.K., spent 200 hours over the course of a month carefully constructing the Freeman painting using just one finger and something called Procreate, which is billed as "the most powerful and intuitive digital illustration app available for iPad."

"It captures every brush stroke automatically and you can export it to the camera roll," Lambert told Mashable. "It has the best canvas size and video export. It’s the most like Photoshop."

The time lapse video of Lambert's Freeman painting drew more than 1.3 million YouTube views in just 24 hours as users gushed over his skill.

"This is incredible!" one person wrote. "The life-like painting of Morgan Freeman was done with an artist's finger on an iPad Air. I can only draw smiley faces."

"How the... what… in the... and all this time, I've been playing freakin' fruit ninja on my iPad," someone else posted. "This is so inspiring."

"Holy CRAP! This is incredible!" another user commented. "You truly have an incredible gift. And some awesome patience to boot! Thank you for sharing this with us."

This isn't Lambert's first iPad finger painting. On his YouTube channel, the artist has posted time-lapses of all kinds of celebrity portraits from Rihanna, Megan Fox, Madonna, and David Beckham to Jennifer Aniston, Will Smith, Beyonce, and even President Barack Obama.
