There is possibility to create in ways previously unavailable. Opportunity to see & experience things previously out of reach. Possibility and opportunity to discover and question all the things in your world.
The greatest power of technology is that possibility and opportunity to question what you see & find answers for yourself.

•Do you think it is truly possible to create that drawing with only an iPad?
No, because you need a finger, and a quick and nimble hand.
Questions 2 & 3:
•Does it change your thinking now that you can see his hands on the iPad?
•Does your idea of possibility change seeing another example?
Question 2: Yes, it changes my thinking because I can tell that the drawing isn’t made by, or given instructions by a robot.
Question 3: No, because I always believed that if I tried, I can draw, or make anything.
•Having watched those 2 videos, and read the article, What do you think? If is possible to create something so realistic with just a finger and an iPad?
Yes, because Kyle Lambert, and probably many other finger painters tried hard, put effort, and took their time on their realistic finger painting projects.
1. I think it is truly possible to create that type of descriptive drawing because some people can be gifted in art and be able to make such descriptive masterpieces.
2. Seeing the hands on the ipad does not change my thinking because I thought these drawings were possible to make.
3. My ideas of possibility do not change by seeing another video because this one even has more proof that these drawings are real.
4. Watching the videos and reading the article makes me really think that it is possible to make such a drawing with a finger and an ipad because in the article they used a microscope to find mistakes and hardly any of the drawing was drawn correctly.
1. No, I do not because you would need a very quick and precise hand to draw it.
2. Yes, it does change my thinking because in the other video you don't know if he got instructions from some manual or someone else etc.
3.Yes, because in one video you see the hands of the person drawing and in the other video you don't see the hands.
4. After seeing the second video I believe it is possible to draw that accurate you just need to put in the effort, time, and hard work then you can accomplish anything.
I think that it is truly possible to create such a detailed, and descriptive drawing because some people can be gifted in making art and being able to create and draw very detailed and descriptive masterpieces.
When I saw the hands on the iPad, it changed my thinking, because I knew that those hands were real, and that incredibly descriptive and detailed piece of art on technology was not made by any electronic part, namely robots and or droids.
My ideas of possibility did not change by seeing another example on the iPad because the example that I saw for this comment made the drawings come more to life into my eyes, so that gave me lots of proof that the drawing made by the person was actually real, and not a robot or a droid drawing it automatically.
Watching Kyle Lambert in that video drawing an incredibly realistic Morgan Freeman and a realistic kitten on an iPad using only his finger in those two examples made me think that it is truly possible to draw with a finger and an iPad because in the article used for this comment, they used a microscope to find mistakes made while drawing the picture, and hardly any of the drawing, even with the hard work, was drawn correctly. That gave me a lot of surprise.
1: I think that making a painting so realistic on an ipad is truly possible. It might be hard but that doesn't mean it's not possible. The video shows proof that it's possible to make an incredible drawing on an ipad. The artist of the drawing showed us the steps of his process.
2: Now that I can see the hands drawing on the ipad I still think that it's possible to make a sophisticated drawing on an ipad because the artist showed us him/her doing it. Some people in this world could do these types of drawings that are as real as this
3: The example of the video of the cat is almost the same thing as the first video except the second video shows hands. This example did not change my opinion at all because even if the hands where fake and just made from the computer they still show how people can do these types of things.
4: Overall my opinion is that it's possible for someone to do something with just a finger and an ipad. The artical shows some mistakes from the drawing of Morgan Freeman, That showed me that Its more possible because if it as fake everything would be perfect and nothing is perfect.
Do you think it is truly possible to create that drawing with only an iPad?
I think it is possible to create that drawing on an ipad. The artist just gave a lot of effort and concentrated the details. It is the same as painting on a computer and people do that all the time with cartoons.
Does it change your thinking now that you can see his hands on the iPad?
Yes. Before I also thought that somebody could do that but now it actually shows that the person wasn’t a robot.
Does your idea of possibility change seeing another example?
I liked the video with the cat better because, yes it showed more details of the colors the person added and it showed that it was a person because there was a hand.
Having watched those 2 videos, and read the article, What do you think? If is possible to create something so realistic with just a finger and an iPad?
Yes, because Kymbe Lambert actually spent time on it and did her best effort. Also the artists could zoom in to see the mistakes and add details. Also its the same as a computer and that’s where animations are made.
Question 1: I think that it is true because when you see this person starting from scratch with this painting it makes you think that that person wasn't a robot or faking.
Question 2: It doesn't change my mind that seeing a real hand on the Ipad because the drawing starts off similar to the other painting I saw.
Question 3: It doesn't change my mind because if someone made those drawings then it doesn't seem impossible.
Final Question: When I read the article it made me think that even though only a little of the drawing matched up precisely it just shows you how incredible people can paint or draw.
Q: Do you think it is truly possible to create that drawing with only an ipad?
A: No, because in that video there is no finger so they had to of put effects no it.
Question 2 & 3:
Q 2: Does it change your thinking now that can see his hands on the ipad?
A 2: Yes, because now you can actually see the person drawing the image.
Q 3: Does your idea possibly change seeing another example?
A 3: Yes, because each video is different and shows different things.
Q: Having watched those 2 videos, and read the article, what do you think? if is possible to create something so realistic with just a finger and an ipad?
A: Yes, because as you can see in one of the videos that Kyle Lambert uses his finger to actually to make the picture.
