Chloe Moretz as YT: Snow Crash Movie by IzzyMedrano Chloe Moretz as YT: Snow Crash Movie by IzzyMedrano
I've been thinking about this concept for ages. When I saw Chloe Moretz up against Jack Donagee from 30 Rock, I knew she had the attitude to play YT. :D Yet another attempt at sharpening my film concept art skills.

Great YT. Great detail work

I belive Neal Stephenson intended SnowCrash to be a comic first before a novel, I think the damned book should evolve from novel into comic and finally into movie....but that would be too big, too much press and media would kill the artistic vision. 
Great depiction of Yours Truly with the RadiKS board and wheels and complete with the magnetic grappling hook, awesome.

Nice Artwork!

I, too, would totally watch this movie, a; because it should have been made years ago, and, b; because Chloe Moretz rules. Is the pattern under her eyes her Knight Visions?

wow, this interpretation of her is so cool! love the board too

Easily my favorite rendition of Y.T. from Snow Crash. Great work!

Very nice... but I thought YT was black. Isn't there a scene where a rent-a-cop gives her grief about "YT" sounding like "whitey" and how it doesn't match her race? I could be wrong; it's been quite a while since I read Snow Crash. And changing a character's race in adaptations happens all the time, so it's not a big deal anyways.

Still, the picture itself is lovely.

She is white. At one point in the book she refers to herself as a "cauc" as in Caucasian. 
IzzyMedrano Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2014  Professional Artist
No, I'm pretty sure she's not black.  That scene was just about her correcting a mispronunciation of her name, and the author explaining to the reader what YT stood for.

And this is the best YT ever!

Wow. Somebody posted this on Pinterest and I immediately recognised her. Amazing artwork!

Zahnradfee Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2014
Yeah, Cloe Moretz would be a fine choice for her!

Cool, I love the design, and I think you're right about that as well.

That horrible ending still leaves bad taste in my mouth.

Very cool.

I hope you are actually working on the movie
IzzyMedrano Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2013  Professional Artist
I wish. :D
Allyatharii Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2013
Oh my gosh her little skateboard thingie has, like, eyes and a mouth, it's so cute! It's totally reminding me of some kind of fish! D: gaaaahh!

Also she looks pretty badass, I like the design. Specially how robust and dense her outfit seems, it really has some good thickness to the fabric. Very believable.

You're not so bad after all :> haha

YT is such an awesome character, and Chloe Moretz would be perfect to play her. This looks great!

Didnt even see this the first time .... This is spectacular!!
Absolutely my favorite character in Snow Crash.... Beautiful painting. Really nailed her.
"Why do you keep calling yourself 'Whitey?" lol
kelleybean86 Featured By Owner May 21, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Woah, you're right, she would be perfect for that role.

I wish I could put into words why this is so awesome. With talent/skill like this, I'm sure you've heard it all.

Y.T. is my favorite character from my favorite book. This isn't how I pictured her or the setting, but I highly approve. As I tell many great "Snow Crash" fan-artists on this site, if this were a design for a "snow Crash" movie, I'd be SUPER excited. I like the retro, 80s/early 90s style of Y.T.'s skateboard and outfit, an I love the smoky atmosphere. Her face and hair are great too.

Nice! Wasn't she supposed to be covered by sponsor logos or something though? I haven't read the book in awhile.

I'm not sold on the smartwheels but otherwise you nailed it.
Recknar Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2013
Very successful piece I'd say, moment I glanced at it I thought YT. That's without seeing the title and having read the book some time ago now.
AniseShaw Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2013  Professional Filmographer
My favourite character! I love Snow Crash.

pjcyto Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Looks like the guys at the office put blue ink on her goggles again. Man, she's going to be ticked when she looks into the mirror.

Those guys... Always joking around.
RTShields Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
:clap: it's been ages since I've read the book, but this is a wonderful rendition nonetheless :D
xsilverwarrior7 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013  Hobbyist Writer

I think this deserves a round of applause. Great Work
ClintonKun Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Perfect casting! And almost exactly as I imagined her! Though I imagined her as having modified her uniform a bit (she is a punk, after all) with some patches and buttons, wearing her handcuffs from earlier in the book as a bracelet, etc. Also, I think she is described as wearing Converse shoes as well. Eh, it's just niticks and personal interpretations, lol. This is definitely one of the best interpretations of her I've seen so far.
Odd-Voodoo Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013
Oh man is this a great pic of y.t. Awesome job!
sandy-bell Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013
