Well this Sharpies are bombs ! The`re water resistant and alcohol based, a bit like water reppelent that you spray on boots. Acrylic is water-based...I don`t know how to help you but here`s a few links that could.
Good luck

Ok..this may sound extreme, but I would try Kilz Original. (brand name stain killer)
They have 2 versions: water based and oil based. The oil based one ("Kilz Original" has higher stain killing properties. You can buy it at home improvement store/builders supply. You can go over the sharpie marker lines (not the whole mural)..with 1 to 2 coats. Then maybe gesso over the kilz before repainting with the acryics so it doesn't soak up the acrylic pigments and dull them out..
Last resort:
Incorporate the outlines as part of the compostion and paint over them with a mixed black from your palette.
This is a suggestion with no sure-fire guarantee, But I have used Kilz around the house and it covers many types of stains.

Try applying an acrylic varnish over the wall that you're painting. In theroy, that should seal the layers of paint as well as the sharpie, creating a barrier between the sharpie and your next layers of paint. Try this on a very small section of the wall to see if it works.
For future reference, marker and paint don't mix!!!

Ethanol gets rid of sharpie marks. You could wipe the wall with ethanol and it should remove most of the sharpie but usually not all of the mark. Enough should be left over for painting.

I don't know if the marker is bleeding or the black colour will just take more coats of paint to cover. At least you know what NOT to do next time. If necessary, paint a thin coat of gesso over the lines and put another coat of acrylic on top. Gesso is the traditional primer for all sorts of materials under acrylics. Pam :)

yep, I was going to suggest KILZ too. It will cover water stains and other things and acts like a primer....so you can paint back over it...Good luck
