The Abstract to Realistic

You may have seen this viral video circulating which depicts Kyle Lambert drawing super-realistic "photographs" using a finger painting app on his ipad. Besides a great promo for Apple products and ProCreate, the video is yet another illustration of the amazing things humans can do with practice, patience, and the right tools. We live in a world now which relentlessly bombards us with amazing stuff other people have done and we haven't. It's hard to feel significant anymore! But I what I was most interested in, while watching this video, is how any number of stages in the creation of the artwork are equally arresting, skillful, and art-worthy. The video really tracks the subtle but significant changes between the abstract and real life. I can't say which I prefer. How about you?
