Most of the time I like to draw from my imagination. It has always come easier for me and I'm able to express myself more. Other reason is when I had tried to copy a picture or person it always came out wrong. Since I am a perfectionist when it comes to my art I decided that I would just stink to what I'm good at and draw from my imagination.
Lately I decided to give it another shot. And guess what... I did a good job! In fact my dad says that it's probably his favorite. But you guys can be the judge of that.
Here is the picture that I copied:
Now this is what my version looks like:
I learned from this, that being a perfectionist doesn't always work. It may just mean that you won't try anything that you don't think you'll be good at. What we are suppose to do is strive for perfection in every aspect of our life. We may never get it to that point, but it doesn't mean we can't keep trying our hardest even at things we might not be really good at. It may take awhile and a lot of hard work, but eventually we may start to look like the one who is truly perfect. Yahushua the Son of the most high El.

"And you shall be set-apart to Me, for I יהוה am set-apart, and have separated you from the peoples to be Mine." Lev 20:26
“Therefore, be perfect, as your Father in the heavens is perfect." Mat 5:48
