This Man’s 3D Drawings Are So Incredible, You’ll Think They're Alive

    Stefan Pabst, an artist from Germany, has been creating 3D paintings and drawings that look way more real than they should.

    You might've seen a video of a 3D spider painting around the internet recently.

    This is the work of Stefan Pabst.

    Stefan is a 35-year-old artist living in Germany.

    "I started painting professionally in 2007," Pabst explained to BuzzFeed News.

    Pabst explained his desire to create something new after becoming bored with just painting portraits.

    Pabst began uploading speed painting videos to YouTube.

    These videos double as tutorials.

    And show the process of how Stefan does his paintings.

    Pabst explained to BuzzFeed that he doesn't just want to wow people with his work, but inspire them too.

    "I often get responses from people that all this is just fake or processed by a computer."

    But with the help of his videos, Stefan is proving that his paintings are authentic. He even confessed to feeling uneasy about his own his work.

    "After I did the spider painting, it made me feel a little queasy," Pabst admitted. "I knew it wasn’t real, my head kept telling me it was dangerous and disgusting."

    As for the future, Stefan has plans to push his work even further.

    "I want to combine portrait painting with 3D painting. It will look as if the man looks out from the paper."
