So do you think the Morgan Freeman iPad picture guy is legit?

If you haven’t heard about it, here it is.

However, I’m inclined to think it’s fake because of this.

Being an artist myself, I find it nearly impossible to have single hairs and whatnot in the exact same place (if you look at the overlay there is absolutely NO shifting of the most minute details…..seriously, stare hard enough). ESPECIALLY without having any type of pressure sensitivity and using a “tool” as fat as a finger. I just feel like it’d be more believable if some pixels were off or something, especially considering that he started off with something very general in shape yet didn’t erase any of the overall shape and still ends up with the exact same dimensions as the original. Seems like he’s doing a photo deconstruction shown backwards.

That and it also seems fishy because his portfolio, while it does have some very good portraits, is not even remotely close to having this level of hyper realism and detail. Like not even in the same ballpark.

I’m just curious to see what others think. Yes yes I’m a skeptic. I keep seeing this on tv. Maybe I should just do fake portraits from now on lol
