Age and appearance
So, I keep drawing my favorite Nikolay Gogol 
And here I portrayed his 3 different stages of life. He got famous when he was 20, but hardly anyone remembers him this way. 
For the last portrait I used his only photo as a reference. 
Eternal rage
Doch es ist nicht alles Gold, was glänzt!
Und leider ist nicht alles tief, was schwarz ist – Nein!
Leider nein.

Und so manches Schwarz gibt vor, tief zu sein.
Doch setzen wir den Bohrer an,
treffen wir auf schnöden Stein!
Auf schnöden Stein.

Stillste Stund - Untertage
Sense of the death
Another portrait of my favorite Nikolay Gogol that was inspired by himself and his house that i visited several days ago while i was in Moscow. As a reference i used his death mask and a portrait of him on his deathbed where he suddenly appears so handsome Disbelief
A5, pastels (an unusual tool for me)  
One of the few works of mine that look the very same irl 
True Gogol
Here we go, a new (an old actually) portrait of russian writer Nikolay Gogol. 

In short, the idea was to picture him as a real, an ordinary person, not as a great writer, and portray his actual emotional state. In all of his intravital portraits he's smiling, but he was actually lonely. And i'm nasty - i don't want to be another artist who would draw another insincere portrait, i want to look straight into his soul and picture what i can see. 
The angle has its role too: he was short and i find it quite important, but the main goal is to make an impression that he's standing right in front of you, and you're talking about something personal. 
I also wanted to make it look like a modern photo. 
And one more point is that in all of his portraits Nikolay is seen by man's eyes, by the eyes of a friend. They lack empathy, i guess. Empathy is exactly what inspired me. There are some moments in his bio that are so true for me.
