Draw Grumpycorn in a Christmas Jumper!

Join me in drawing this fabulous fiesty unicorn in his festive finery! You'll need a pencil or pen and paper or, if you'd like to get a bit fancier and paint it, some water, paper towel, paint brushes and paint. If you're painting with watercolour paints, think about using paper that will absorb the paint well, something thicker than computer paper (ideally watercolour paper).

For this video I used a Pentel brush pen (it's great because the ink is water-proof, a Faber Castell Pitt pen (also water-proof ink) and Winsor & Newton's watercolours (the cheaper Cotman brand). But try different kinds of pens; sometimes when the ink smears in the water it can end up creating a cool effect.
