16 - i understand your point of view :) but unless OP is an artist, she shouldn't have expected it to come out perfect. if i truly was offended, i wouldn't cry in front of my boyfriend about it. especially after he took all that time to make it. it's always the thought that counts :)

Yea, to me this says she's more insecure & concerned about her appearance than the fact that her boyfriend took a month getting a gift ready for her. Looks aren't everything.

Hit it on the head. Look, I'm an artist. I'd even consider myself to be a GOOD artist (seeing as I'm currently working on an official, paying, *contracted* gig to illustrate a graphic novel, I don't think that's an overestimation).

I agree, some guys these days would not even think to do that in the first place. I would really appreciate it if my boyfriend painted me a portrait :) Although I would laugh my ass off if he shows up with a Picasso version of me. lol

You first have to know that oil painting is really hard, even for professional artists and geniuses, second, if an artist decides to do a painting for a girl then she must be magnificently beautiful, so don't hate
