Doesn't every movie have to have a villain? Well in Epic's case the bad guy is this blue faced fella you see before you now. Up next, we will learn "how to draw Mandrake", step by step. Now, Mandrake is one cool looking dude. I love his face, his hunched over body style, and the fact that he is blue makes everything that much better. I really love the way that Mandrake came out, and if you are still not familiar with what Epic is, you have to watch the trailer. Epic is going to be a film that will make everyone think twice about whats living in our own backyards. Drawing Mandrake is going to be cool, and the lesson will also be a learning challenge. I have to bounce out of here because there is still more to upload. Be back soon folks, enjoy.
