At first it will seem like a regular time-lapse video. But we kindly recommend keeping those tissues at hand because its unexpected end will not only give you goosebumps, but maybe even a teary eye or two.
Created by a South Korean artist who goes by the name 석정현, or Stonehouse, the five-minute video shows nine incredible portraits of a girl all created in one breath using Corel Painter software.
But there's a heartbreaking twist at the end that's hard to predict.
In less than a minute and with just a few brush strokes, the artist creates the very first sketch of his heroine.
Using immaculate speed-painting skills, Stonehouse continues to fly through time, transforming this little girl from a baby to a proud first-grader.
Eventually, she turns into a beautiful teen. But what's this life vest doing here?
Apparently, Stonehouse created this speed-painting video to honor the victims of a South Korean ferry disaster.
Back on April 16, 2014, a Sewol ferry carrying 476 people capsized off the southern coast of South Korea. The ship was carrying a number of students from Danwon High School, who were going on a trip to a nearby island.
The disaster took 304 lives. The life vest, ocean sounds and sudden shut down of computer's program are all beautiful allegories suggesting we lost the ability to save them. But we can at least take time to remember them.
