Raskolnikov by shichinin-tai Raskolnikov by shichinin-tai
EDIT: Well, I guess that I should explain something. I keep getting messages concerning the fact that Rodia wasn't a wicked maniac and this portrait isn't accurate. I'm aware of the fact that Raskolnikov was a really nervous and martyred by his crime man. The truth is that when I was starting to draw this, I didn't think about Rodia at all. Then, as I noticed that he is coming out rather handsomely, considering the fact that I really love this character, I decided to finish it like this and submit under his name.
Anyway, I think that this person, even if completely fictional, deserves at at least one kind of 'representative' portrait, without scared look and gaping eyes ; ) Maybe he's thinking about his theory, who knows.



I've just come back from holiday, I'll reply to your messages later. Now I'm working at the second sketch done at grandma's ; )

Rąsia jak zwykle za mała.

Perfect portrait!

That expression is exactly the same as I imagined his face when he used to think about his theories and plans, principally in the beginning of the book (I must agree that after he kills that woman [forgot her name], he starts to be just like a scared and nervous young man).

Congrats ^^

I gotta say, when he smiles in the book, I imagined him looking more like a wicked manic man rather than extremely nervous. The guy's sporadic, he may have moments when he looks like this.
Very cool picture. :)

This is beautiful!!! I love the way you've represented Raskolnikov. I'm reading Crime and Punishment and building a website about it for my CP World Lit. Class. I was wondering if I may post this on there. I'd cite you, and send you the webpage link and everything, I promise! If you prefer that I don't, then that's alright too:) Just let me know if it's okay or not:)

No, seriously, Rodia had this IN him, even if he wasn't a wicked maniac. We ALL have this in us. Good on you! This is great.

If you ask me, his expression here isn't that 'sinister' as much as it's simply 'calculating'. This portrait shows the cold, rational side to him (and we all know that he was highly intelligent and had good reasoning behind his actions). Definitely a fave, have never seen such a good pic of Raskolnikov on the whole internet. ;)

I think that this portrait is accurate. Actualy Rodia isn't a kind of linear character, but with multiple shades that develope and superpose along the phases of the novel. I think this fictional portrait despicts the part when he is rationalizing his crime with the actions of a Napoleon, whom murders hundreds of people in a single battle and doesn't have any regards about the atrocities that he inflicts.

This is Rodia as the übersmensch before regreting and falling under the weight of guilt. Excelent one!

You know, even though Raskolnikov wasn't a maniac as people have pointed out, he did have his moments, when he was manic and his thoughts raced and he was unwell, and he had those little mood switches. It's not that far-fetched to imagine him in this manner. And I love it. Lots. It's like he's in one of his more 'difficult' moods.

Wow It looks really great, I love the blood, the stare and his smile.
yes, his expression would suit someone like Svidrigailov better. Rodya thought he could be this sort of remorseless killer, but afterwards he couldn´t even live with himself. However this could be before he actually killed the pawnbroker.
