"..want to try some Snow Crash?"

This is Dmitri "Raven" Ravinoff - "the baddest motherfucker in the world", from the novel Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson. Which comes highly recommended by meeee. Read it.

Of all the pictures of Raven I've seen, this one seems the closest to how I pictured him.  I love how slick looking it is! Awesome job!

Wow...

I was just reading Snow Crash and got to THAT scene with Raven and YT. You know the one. <EG>

So I was wondering how artists rendered Raven, and by damn I think this one is JUST how I picture him. Awesome.

Would you mind if I shared this picture on another website?

I'm part of a Facebook group dedicated to "Snow Crash," and the image section is mostly empty. I was hoping to share some of the cool "Snow Crash" art from here on D.A. with that Facebook group. I'd credit the artist under evey image I share there. But, I won't post anything without the artists' permission. If you're not comfortable with me sharing it there, then I won't do it.

I didn't comment on this? Werid. Anyway, awesome job. This is the closest picture I've found to how I pictured Raven. You made him look pretty scarry.

And he really does look like the world's baddest motherfucker, doesn't he?
I almost went as him to a party one time (figured I'd just get someone to write the tattoo on my forehead).

NICE. Excellent use of shadows. Has an almost "graphic novel" feel to it, which is appropriate considering Snow Crash was originally going to be a comic book before it ended up being a novel.

Awesome. Just how I pictured him while reading it.
I dig that his eyes are 'shadowed.'
