    Biggest pet peeve when drawing?

    I suppose the usual thing would be if the picture doesn't turn out right, or if you can't get down on paper what you have in your imagination. At least those are usual for me. But I have to say, I hate accidentally dropping my kneaded eraser on the ground and then seeing it has hair on it and crap.

    ^Definitely. Aslo, when a drawing is going great, but you go to erase something and you accidentally use your crappy eraser and you smudge it... and there is a permanent black smudge that won't erase... and that freak out moment when you realized you just ruined a drawing that you've been working on close to 2 hours...
    Last time that happened to me, it was 1am... I was already incredibly tired and frustrated... and I about threw my sketchbook out the window... >_<

    ^ That is why I don't have a kneaded eraser anymore haha. I just cut up an eraser into tiny bits if I want to erase a small part.

    I don't have enough drawing experience to have petpeeves though.
    Maybe one could be when I finally have time to draw, after grinding through my chemistry/physics homework, and I'm so burnt out all my studies suck due to lack of concentration. That definitely doesn't make me happy.

    WHEN PRESSING THAT WINDOWS BUTTON INSTEAD OF ALT in Photoshop.
    And then accidentely click on "Printers and Devices"
    And for some reason it takes ages to load that screen
    And then click it away. :V

    Maybe I should just change the shortcut for colour picking...

    Double-clicking an Illustrator file instead of a similarly named Photoshop file, then waiting ten years for Illustrator to launch just so I can quit Illustrator and wait another ten years for Photoshop to launch.

    But that's not as annoying as drawing on the wrong layer, and not noticing until you're too far into it to be able to revert.

    And THAT'S not as annoying as getting pthalo blue on your hand and then accidentally sticking your hand on the one part of your painting where pthalo blue will wreak the most havoc. (I swear that stuff gets EVERYWHERE if you so much as look at it. You try getting rid of it, and it gets into something else, and before you know it the whole picture has a green tinge.)

    Clean your damned room and/or buy a new kneaded eraser, they're cheap!

    When I draw something and it looks like shit. Its fine though because it only happens when I draw something so I can avoid that by posting in silly threads on Art Discussion

    Thinking I'll be tidy painting and get some on the last paint free pair of trousers I have. And how the heck do I get it on my elbows so often?

    Ever since I absent-mindedly wiped off a brush on my good skirt I've learned to never ever even go NEAR a loaded brush while wearing good clothes. Even the tiniest bit of touching up somehow gets paint on everything.

    Paint on elbows is an eternal mystery. Even more mysterious is paint on feet.

    I have a tarp down in my studio to protect the floor. I gesso hardboard on the tarp, and so over time it's acquired a layer of dried acrylic gesso on it. Apparently, acrylic gesso flakes stick to bare feet, but not as well as to linoleum. So my kitchen floor started getting a buildup of gesso because it would ride my feet into the kitchen, where it would let go and then instantly bond to the lino. It's like some sort of weird parasitic gesso life cycle.

    I have since bought a pair of slippers but man -- you discover things while painting that you never would otherwise.

    My biggest "pet peeve" is when you're drawing in your sketchbook, you make a mistake and think to yourself "cmd+alt+z" and actually sit there for 5 mins wondering why it won't delete.

    Does this happen to anyone else or am I just going crazy?
