Wild Eye: Drawing a Lion in Copic Marker


Today’s short video is a way-sped-up version of this lion, created mostly on Periscope broadcasts. I’ll be hosting an all-day art session on Thursday October 29th, and I hope you’ll pop in to visit! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I hope you can join me next Thursday….I’ll be on Periscope all day working on something. Yet to be determined. But it’ll be fun, whatever it is! Download the app on itunes or google play and follow @sandyallnock to be ready!
