To promote the launch of Surface Pro 3 in the UK, Microsoft has asked popular British artist James Mylne to draw famous portraits on a Surface Pro 3 using Fresh Paint app and the stylus. James created the paintings of the Bronte Sisters, William Shakespeare and Dame Christabel Pankhurst.
“After years of creating art with a ballpoint pen on paper, it’s remarkable how quickly I was able to adapt my working style to the Surface Pro 3,” the 33-year-old artist explained.
“The Pen has many levels of pressure sensitivity, which enabled me to create smooth, precise lines and capture the depth and spirit of each painting.”
The results were amazing, find them below.
