Redrawing Images for Children's Book Again

My children's book is complete. I have finished the manuscript and illustration. I drew them once in my sketchbooks and then again on drawing paper. Sometimes I would be unhappy or make a mistake and redraw the image. I tried to add water colour and of course the paper just shredded and the colours looked dull. I am now redrawing and painting the entire book on watercolour paper. It is taking me months and I am a student so I need to focus on school. I feel very defeated at the number of times I have had to redraw each picture. Most people use the computer to make their illustrations. Mine are hand made from beginning to end. No computer except to scan them into Blurb. 

How many times did you all redraw your images? How long did it take to hand illustrate your books?
