Watch these time-lapse videos of some of the most fantastical flying islands from last week’s Drawing Challenge, and see them come to life one stroke at a time. 

These drawings and videos were all created using the PicsArt app, and they provide you with valuable insight into the drawing methods of some of PicsArt’s most talented users. We also urge you to check them out below if only to see these amazingly imaginative flying islands materialize before your eyes.
