Dostoyevsky - Crime and Punishment by Futago-KawaiI Dostoyevsky - Crime and Punishment by Futago-KawaiI
Hello friends!:iconloveloveplz:
At this time we have drawn an unusual illustration. This is a fragment of the great scenes from Dostoevsky's novel Crime and Punishment. It depicts the protagonist Rodion Raskolnikov and his friend Dmitry Razumikhin. This is our favorite book so we decided to dedicate her picture.:heart::heart:

We hope you enjoyed it! Thanks in advance for comments and fav!!!!:iconsweethugplz:

:iconnerysghemor:
Excellent work! I especially appreciate that even before I looked at the description, I was able to so easily know the characters. I knew that was Raskolnikov; I knew that was Razumikhin. Their body language and their reactions to the light said it all. For all of Raskolnikov's parading around about being some sort of Uebermensch, it is Razumikhin who has the certainty (ignorance) of being wrapped up so completely in his philosophies that he looks at the light without fear.

He should be afraid. But he is not.

Raskolnikov, however, is clearly tormented. He doesn't want to admit it to himself yet, but he is already seeing the futility of what happens when (as one of his literary successors says) "everything is permitted."

GREAT job...both from a technical perspective and for the way you interpreted the characters.

I love Dostoyevsky. It's a shame so few people here in the US really love them.

I don't know how much sense this makes...but even though it's not my culture or my history, and I have to read the footnotes and sometimes struggle to keep up with people's names, diminutives, and patronymics, on some level Russian literature from this time period (or inspired by it, such as with Solzhenitsyn) is better able to speak to my heart than a lot of what the US or the UK produced or produces.

Frankly...though I am Methodist, I think Dostoyevsky taught me through his books a lot about how to be a Christian.
What do you think?
