I had an idea for a drawing, I've been working on it the past 3 days. The lineart came out really, really cool. I had an image in my head of it finished in water colors and decided to go with that. Yeah... it didn't turn out so good. I tried for hours to salvage it with colored pencils but it was a no-go. It was just really frustrating to work so hard on something and all you get from it is a mess.
I'm so so sorry that happened Oocoo, something not turning out how you envisioned is always hard to deal with, especially with all that time put in. I haven't been in that exact situation, but I've also felt the pain when a drawing doesn't come out the way you want it to, especially if it's watercolors. They're always unpredictable, and that's part of why I kinda stopped experimenting with them really early on because I could never get it how I wanted. That was a few years back iirc. I want to get back into using them again though, and keep going even if the first few aren't how I envision them in my head, because I wasn't experienced with colored pencils until I actually put in a lot of practice first, and that'll be the same thing with watercolors.
I do remember one time though one my drawings/sketches either got crumpled up or drawn on by my little brother, I can't remember which because this was quite awhile ago, but I actually had to step outside for a second because I was so frustrated and sad and angry and I didn't want to take it out on him, so I understand the emotions you're feeling.
I know that situation really sucks...looking at the one maybe positive aspect from it, you've become more experienced in watercolor and whatever happened to make it not turn the way you wanted, perhaps you'll be able to pinpoint it and figure out how to improve in that area with other watercolor drawings. Or maybe it was just how it went this time, I don't know how long you've been practicing with watercolors. And they can be unpredictable because of how it mixes together and wets the paper.
hghh just rereading it, I hate that happened Oocoo
you need a ton of hugs right now
