So used to by Washu-M So used to by Washu-M
Just about something that keeps happening to me when I get traditional media to draw... :|

I think that's because the computer is on my drawing table, so many times when I have to get the rubber I usually motion my hand to hit Ctrl+Z on the keyboard... +___+

I feel... kinda... dumb every time that happens... ^^;

But then I start laughing anyway! XDDDD

see ya! :D

Washu_M [Gets back to her normal papers and pencils] :sprint:

PS: I'm so relieved it happens to more people than I thought! :squee:

This actually happened to me. I was sketching, I sneezed and messed up one of my lines. My brain thought the undo button and I reached my non-drawing hand over until I realized I was doing traditional art.

I have been using digital tools for a year while I have been creating traditionally for like ten years... I really wonder why this happens to me still so often, when I draw on paper o_o Instead of reaching out for the eraser, the CTRL+Z just runs through my mind. It is odd!
artiermis Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2016   Digital Artist
I do the exact same thing! I draw, the Line is bad, so I reach out to the Ctrl-Z.

I always try to limit the times I take the pencil off the paper so I don't run out of undos, lol!
Hah, I feel stupid every time I do that.

I know right.

Used to make traditional drawings constantly. Ever since I taught myself how to draw digitally everything I knew about drawing traditionally just kinda fell out of my head.

I don't know what ctrl + z is. Do I seem like the dumb person here? XD
TeryakiKitty Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2015  Student Artist
ctrl + z is undo, usually used for erasing a mistake while sketching
Quetzal-Queen Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
This is the complete opposite for me,though I would like to try out digital art.

Same here lol

I've tried to zoom in on normal paper so many time I can't count them. 😌

How about getting so used to SAI and tablets that you position your pencil and tap it down to 'make a new layer' ;u;
Arannatist Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i have the same issue
always do it in public too and i place my fingers in the position of ctrl + z on the paper and press and they ask me what im doing e_e
AskTeenLuna Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2014
I forget theres no undo or zoom XD
KokoaTakahashi27 Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I agree! Haha :D

Sometimes, I wish life had an Undo button :)

omfg- i was drawing on paper one time and i went to the coner of my page and i litterally tried to press controll+z on .the.paper.
lionkinq Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
omg i thought my homework had spellch eck,,?
xyzUnusedXYZ Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
lol XD pinky finger on ctrl and index finder on z.
Plus, using a rubber is a problem because the drawing can get all messy and you don't know where you had left drawing before erasing.
Fuzzy-Dreams Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i do it X3
MystikJinx Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I keep hearing about tablets. But I have no idea where to find one or how much they even cost. Let alone how the heck I would use one lol
DiscordDashie Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
This would explain a lot...
Wreck-ItRalph Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2014
Erasers = CTRL+Z
LiviTheFighter Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I want a tablet. T-T It combines the easy way of drawing traditional art and the easy deletion of digital art. But it is to expensive.
Insacove Featured By Owner May 6, 2014   Digital Artist
I would buy you one, random stranger, if I had the money, and knew where you lived. XD

always. happens. to me.

1stly: Nice stamp! And so totally true!
2ndly: All of reality should have it, besides paper! :D Just think what you could screw up and then go: Naaah! I'll change that.
I've had dreams where there was an undo feature, which was so useful!

Once I worked on a digital piece for a long time, then a little while  after finishing it I went to work on a tradition piece and when I messed up I moved my fingers over an invisible CTRL+Z. I laughed harder than I should have. :laughing:
Ask-Stonekit Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2013
Lol so true XD I make too many mistakes, and definately on paper. So I'm like: "SHAT!" XD
Star--Tracer Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This happens to me all the time. I tend to hit the side of the paper where the buttons would be on my tablet. XD
Redfeatherstar Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I was drawing traditionally and I thought about copy-pasting something. XD I rolled around on the floor in my own shame.

It happened with Ctrl-Z too. :3
raddily Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Exactly. That happens to me a lot lately....
RoseyWingedCat Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm so used to digital art, i forget that life has no Ctrl+Z.
..I think that speaks for itself o3o
RukaStephanieLuna Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I was so exhausted in class, during my free period and I was sketching in my book and I messed up =.= Couldn't figure out why the mistake wasn't going away.. Was pushing Ctrl + Z on my laptop...

Class found it funny, concerned my teacher though xD

This is what happened when you get use to digital drawing and spend too much time drawing, reading, writing or staying up almost all night talking to your bf xDD 
RegusMartin Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I do this almost every time I draw!
skylanderlover123 Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I did this yesterday when I was drawing and I thought my paper had a undo button XD
Rainwolfy Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I forget there's no crtl+z in real life... :I

*hand accidentally hits drink and spills it*
Brain: Quick hit the crtl+z button!


:iconpoker-faceplz: Oh.

*draws in sketchbook* *someone bumps into me and messes me up* *looks around for keyboard* Me: What... Where the hell did the keyboard go??
sarazack99 Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2013   Digital Artist
That happens to me too. I screw something up and move my hand for my mouse to hit the undo button when I realize paper doesn't work that way. XD
SaraiK Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2013  Student Digital Artist
i try undoing my writting/draw on paper in real life too .-.
Spirit-creator-Katie Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I had that problem but my keyboard was broken, so when ever I did a traditional drawing and wanted to redo a line I just drew I would move my hand to the top-left side of my page like a dumbass!
BoogsDaKittyKat Featured By Owner May 30, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's me!
