Poyekhali by efleck Poyekhali by efleck
A portrait of Yuri Gagarin, Russian cosmonaut, and first man in outer space. A commissions for :iconkatlinegrey:, one of three, 11x14, charcoal.

Titled after his first word following the launch of his Vostok capsule on April 12, 1961, which translates to "Off we go!". He died only seven years later when the MiG 15 training jet he was piloting crashed.

A truly fantastic job, the shading speaks for itself but for me the thoughtful expression really shines :)

The fine, beautiful shading work... the smooth, almost "marble-esque" look of everything... the unbelievable attention to even the smallest detail.

A beautiful portrayal of humanity's first space representative. :D An instant fave for anyone with even the slightest interest in the cosmos.

It's wonderful, my dear! :hug:
It's especially great that you finished it now, because there will be the Day of Cosmonautic at 04.12, the 51th anniversary of Gagarin's flight.

Well, I'm a really distracted worker, so I tend to work for a few moments and then wander off (the dog and my male half are constantly demanding attention as well). I think I started this on... Saturday. So worked on it a bit on sunday night, a little on monday night and tuesday morning before work. Four or five hours maybe? lol, it's so hard to say :XD:
