Raskolnikow i Razumichin: "Nie ma spiny..." (Raskolnikov & Razumikhin: "Don't bother yourself...")
- 15.09.2012*** WORK DESCRIPTION ***
My first picture of Raskolnikov with his best friend in a bit humorous way. The quote is one of the most frequently used saying among Polish students that means something like: "Don't bother yourself, there are reterms". Isn't it possible that a similar expression might have existed at the universities of tsar's Russia? I don't think so.
As we remember from the book, Dostoyevsky pictured Raskolnikov and Razumikhin as two characters with completely different attitude towards studying. Raskolnikov, as an extremely ambitious and hard-working young man, was studying hard in the hope to acquire as wide knowledge as possible. On the other hand, Razumikhin, a good-tempered optimist, surely damped his friend's ardour (or at least tried to do so) and relieved him of exam stress.
The piece dedicated to all the students - both diligent and avid for knowledge as Rodion Romanovich and those of stoical attitude like Dmitri Prokofievich.
Enjoy! *** Please read before adding the critique ***
I would like to know your opinion about my work and my drawing style as a whole. One thing I want to ask you for is not to be rude to me as far as it's my fifth
attempt to draw a human portrait ever and I'm just a beginner.
Thank you in advance. P.S.: The comic-like eyes of the man with a book in his hands is an intentional manipulation!*** Inspired by "Crime and Punishment" by Fyodor Dostoyevsky and its Soviet screening from 1969. ***
