I drew the following picture in my 7th grade art class.
We had to copy an original and include all the details.
It was like torture.
I wish I still had the original so you could see how spot-on this is.
The perfectionist inside me was constantly taking over and insisting that I erase any little mistake.
I can't remember how long it took, but it was far longer than I was allowed.
I still got a perfect score on it though.
It pays to be a suck-up sometimes. :)
