"And that's why people with really good ideas should have the right to kill when they need to..."

Raskolnikov, expounding on his theory to Razumikhin (who, being a decent human being, is of course not okay the idea.)

I imagine Razumikhin is the type to grow out his beard in the winter...

I love their expressions, especially Razumikhin. :D
But shouldn't Raskolnikov be dark haired? I thought it was stated in the beginning of the novel.

Aw thanks! Haha drawing weirded-out Razumikhin is the best :D Yeah I hear that a lot about the hair; turns out that there are several different ways that the russian hair-color word was translated in different books, I ended up with a blond version somehow ;) But in retrospect I agree, he's totally more of a dark-hair personality!

I looked at the original again and it says his hair was dark brown-blond (if you translate literally).
I always wanted to ask you people outside of Russia - is it hard to read this author translated? :) You seem to like him and a lot of people draw illustrations :)

Oh you're Russian, lucky! Someone told me that about the original translation before, but what does it mean? How can hair be dark brown and blond at the same time? (Of course if any character could pull that off it would be Raskolnikov, Mr. contradiction himself :)) No, I don't find it hard to read translated at all, I love it! Though I think I was fortunate to read a good translation the first time- I've heard some are easier to get through than others. I would looove to read it in Russian, but sadly I'm a long way from knowing how to speak it :(

In Russian it's "rusyi" (русый) which means dark blond, or blond-brown (light brown, if you want to call it that). It's a normal hair colour, not contradictory at all :D So, I guess his hair was just brown, not closer black or anything :)
Good to know you enjoyed it :) I just finished "Brothers Karamazov", and I'm sad Dostoevsky died before finishing the whole saga :( It was really promising.

Thank yooou! :highfive: This is the most thorough explanation I've gotten about his hair color; I've never quite been clear on what the original said and I've always wondered!

I (mostly) read Brothers Karamazov- though I'll admit there were some chapters in the middle I skipped because I was on a deadline and had to finish it for class. But I like the book for sure! I can't stand that it ended on a cliff hanger and we'll never know for certain what would have happened!

Glad to help :)

Yeah, as I said, the ending was so promising! He could've done soooo much awesome with these characters and their story :( This is even worse then when someone stops updating a good fanfic. It might be a lame comparison, but you know what I mean.

Pretty much anyone who gets in the way of their awesome ideas. (Or in his case a little old pawnbroker lady) Yeeah. It's a pretty awful theory.
Haha he totally does look drunk! 'Twas unintentional :D

NOOO you did NOT just compare the bestest smartenst sexyest Russianist character to ever a whiney little Slitheryn!!! I am totally going to ignore the fact that you are right and they are kinda similar sometimes... Though I like to think that Rodya thinks through his theories about why he is a superior human being while Malfoy just kind of assumes he is. (I kind of love it when Rodya is all arrogant, because he's pretty much dirt poor and doesn't have much to be arrogant about :aww:)

Of course he would grow a beard in the winter. It is just another way to keep warm without paying extra!
They look like Rodya just sneezed on Razu > >;

*nods* He's possibly my favorite Russian author. I'm not sure if I could say which of his novels is my favorite... It's so hard to choose, and I love all of them.

I have an ambition to one day read them in their original Russian...

Brothers Karamazov is excellent - my current favorite, I think.

I speak a little, and I can read/write more. I'm hoping to go on a trip to Russia soon, so I need to get practicing...

The names! *foams at mouth* When I get a new Russian novel I spend at least 20 minutes staring at the list of characters there usually is in the front or back, trying to memorize who they all are...

(I still end up having to go back)
