YT from Snow Crash by rubendevela YT from Snow Crash by rubendevela
She's more protagonist then Protagonist!
But he and Raven will end up in the final picture, somehow.

I don't see here wearing MGS type body armor. More like a jumpsuit covered in barcodes

Man I just started reading this for the first time, and this is pretty much exactly how I figured she looked. Awesome job dude!

Awesome pose and styley!

Isn't she, like, fifteen?

Thanks so much! :D

Just like I've always imagined her.
theubbergeek2 Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2012
woah, cool.

Nice detail on her harpoon!

Cool drawing! The suit is pretty much how I imagined it as well. I've been reading through this book recently. Ok, I lies, I'm listening to an audio version of this book.
rubendevela Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2011  Student Digital Artist
ooh, is the audio good?
stafax Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2011  Student General Artist
I listened to the one from Audible, the person reading did a good job, he was really good at doing different voices for everyone.
rubendevela Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Yeah! Some audiobook readers are pretty good at that :D
PTrebs Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2011
This is amazing, I just finished reading the book, I love it

Thats fantastic! :D
SecndLogic Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2010
I remember this book! My family got it for my brother's birthday, but we took a look into the story out of curiosity. Then, we were all hooked. My poor brother ended up getting his present a few months late!
I've tried drawing the Snow Crash characters, too, but I'm not sure where I put my concepts. I remember I made YT look very snowboarder-ish. I really like your take on her suit and harpoon!
LittlePixel Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2010
Without a doubt my most favorite character from SnowCrash... And so far, without a doubt my favorite rendition of her!
rubendevela Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2010  Student Digital Artist
Thanks! I'll do a compilation of them... someday?
Dark-Ops Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
I just finished the book and really really enjoyed it. I'm really liking this rendition of her, especially the expression. I couldn't tell you exactly why... just that it looks natural.

Beautiful work. ^_^
racul Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2009
I am reading Snow Crash at the moment, so thanks for the visual. =)
RoricSavior Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2009
Love it. Great book, and great job.
y0j1m80 Featured By Owner May 12, 2009
sweet book, this is perfect. :)
CleverNamesAreTaken Featured By Owner May 4, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
Awesome. Love Y.T., and I agree that she's more protagonist, and more of an interesting character overall.
Great work!

Odd-Voodoo Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2009
Whoah, very cool. Love the harpoon design!
Vongchild Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I definitely just reread this yesterday! This is a really nice, dynamic interpretation of the character. For some reason I always imagined her as having long hair, but the short hair you gave her makes a lot more sense now that I think about it.
Zucca-Xerfantes Featured By Owner May 2, 2008  Hobbyist Writer
I really like what you did here! I pictured her hair a bit longer and the magnapoon to be held in her hand, but then I remembered that she got a newer, updated one along with the new pair of KnightVision goggles.

Fantastic work overall!

You simply must do Raven, now that you've got both Y.T. and Hiro. Heh, maybe even a groupshot! Hiro, Y.T., Juanita, Uncle Enzo, Raven, The Librarian Daemon, Bob Rife, Da5id...

Anyway, great work!
trigerhape Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2008
Fantastic! I think you should show traffic in the background swerving out of the way, like in those BMW commercials XD
PurpleDucky Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
I love the colors that you've used. Orange and blue could easily become garish, but they're certainly not like that here. Also, the poon? Best freakin' version of it that I've seen. :D
Meatham Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2008
This is almost exactly the way I pictured Y.T.! The coveralls matched perfectly what I had in my head. :P
poisonedwriter Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2008

You, sir, have excellent taste. And yes, you should indeed put Hiro and Raven in there as well. Maybe even Uncle Enzo?
rubendevela Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2008  Student Digital Artist
Eventually :)
omnipotentseal Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2007
I was browsing your other stuff, and noticed the YT sketch... Its really, really cool to see Snow Crash fanart, especially YT. I also forth (or fifth) the suggestion for renditions of Hiro and Raven, as well as Uncle Enzo (maybe.)
rubendevela Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2007  Student Digital Artist
This has almost been uploaded for a year :)
I'll see what I can do about Hiro and Raven :D
AmyClark Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2007   Traditional Artist
Why...Yours Truly! Fancy seeing you here. :) I have my fingers crossed for a finished version. Great movement and design thus far!
rubendevela Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2007  Student Digital Artist
Maybe someday... I'm stuck on Raven :XD:
Justi Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2007
Awesomeness! I imagined her coverall being a bit more baggy considering all the stuff she always is carrying... but still, looks way more cool this way.
marztek Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2007
this book was wonderful!

great illustration of Y.T.
Kapalsky Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
Wow, this draw is very dynamic! I really like the stroke!!!
shepherd-michael Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2007
I just finished the book, and this looks about like I thought YT did. Good job.

If I dont see more Snow Crash art, I might cry.
rubendevela Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2007  Student Digital Artist
Someday, this sketch will be part of a finished image...
'Til then...
UndecemUmbrae Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2006
I really hope you end up finishing this! It's awesome, and I think if its a polished piece with hiro and raven I'd probably buy a print. :)

Ten unique victories!

Yay YT! I loved Snow Crash! If ever there was a book begging to be made into a cutting age graphic novel, it's Snow Crash.
madmodderx Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2007
Well it was suppose to be one:
"... , the original goal of which was to publish a computer-generated graphic novel..."
~Acknowledgements section in my friend's version of Snow Crash
tiragon Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2006
Nice technique, excellent perspective.

And I liked Your's Truly up until the point where she and Raven sorta 'exploded'. That totally destroyed the pacing of the book.

OOh eto pala yun! =D
