He paints both portraits and in 3D. Although his work on the internet is relatively recent, he's been doing it for some time.

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

"Every day for 10 hours I was painting faces. It was a challenge to begin with but I got bored," explained Pabst. "I wanted to go beyond the boundaries of the sheet of paper and leave 2D behind."

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

"I want to inspire people through my art and show them that they can do anything. I want to show the magic of painting."

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.

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."
