Here’s a painting I did for a really good friend of mine who got married earlier this year. The painting was done in Photoshop and is based on a photo of the couple taken by photographer @jennawoodwardphotography

Kyle, My name is Kyle 
I have a favor to ask of you, I am a fan of your work but there is a site online trying to make you to be a fraud of sorts especially over your morgan freeman piece. Is there a way that you can post or send a very detailed vid or descritption of what you accomplished? I am also an artist and it pisses me off when others want to take away great work from artists its no different then those who think are powerful make you pay taxes to eat after taxing you to work

If you edit your photos before posting them to G+ I would recommend turning off the Auto features in settings. It's on by default :/

Visual Artist - Painting & Illustration (Concept Art, Visual Development, iPad Art, Reviews & Video Tutorials)

My name is Kyle and I am a UK based artist who specialises in Painting, Illustration and Animation. I have a degree in Illustration with Animation and currently work as a freelance visual artist.

In my spare time I enjoy watching movies with friends, listening to music, travelling, taking photographs, playing football, running and cycling.

My work

My work combines my passion for art, technology and story telling. I trained as a traditional oil painter and consider my main strengths to be the manipulation of colour, light and form to create striking images for storyboards, character designs and concept artwork.

I have a fine attention to detail, a strong work ethic, love what I do and thrive on the constant challenge to learn and improve as an artist.

Tools I use

I work from day to day on an Apple Mac Pro with a Wacom Cintiq 21 UX and an Intuos 4 graphics tablet. I use a range of software including the Adobe Creative Suite, Autodesk Maya and Apple's Final Cut Studio.

When away from my Mac I use a combination of my sketchbook, SLR, iPhone and iPad to develop my ideas. On my iPad I use a number of art apps including Brushes, SketchBook Pro and ArtRage.

I have compliled a full list of applications and tools that I use on my links page here.


In 2010, finger paintings that I created using my iPad were featured in the UK Newspapers The Telegraph, Daily Mail and Metro and on the tech websites Macworld, TUAW and Cnet.

The videos showing how I created the paintings with my iPad received over half a million views on YouTube in 2 months and my portrait of Beyoncé was featured on her Official Website.

In 2011, I was the featured Artist at Macworld Expo 2011 in San Francisco, where I was invited to give a talk about digital artwork. I was also featured in Apple's Year of iPad video, which was presented onstage at Steve Jobs' iPad 2 announcement event in March.
