ASCII art

Post by sinewav »

I might make more Tron ASCII art soon. You can make some and share too.

Code: Select all

          . = .
       ,'  /_\  '.
  ========== ==========
  [_]=\___\===/___/=[_]
  =====================
  | |      ```      | |
  | |               | |
  | |               | |
  | |               | |
  |__\             /__|
            _
      ___.'_U_'.___
      [:\__\=/__/:]
      ||   ```   ||
      ||         ||
      |_\       /_|

         __.~.__ 
         |-----|
         |_   _|

Code: Select all

       |        |
       |        |
       |        |
       | \    / |
       | 0    0 |
       |   ..   |
       |  ____  |
        \      /
         \    /
          \  /
           \/
           /\
          /  \
         /    \

I always wonder why this is called "ascii art", its not ascii, its not art. No offense, sine.
There's a difference between knowing your shit, and knowing you're shit. Grammar does matter.

Oh, you want to be a Mr. Smarty-Pants and point out the UTF-8 encoding? I'm sure everyone will be thrilled at your observation and see me as some sort of cyber-charlatan trying to pass off one encoding for another. Drat! My plan foiled! I'm as impotent as a virus written for Win 3.1.

As far as your "not art" comment goes, well, we can all have an opinion on what constitutes art. It's rather subjective. However, you certainly found this "art" interesting enough to comment, which unfortunately for you validates it's purpose -- that is, to cause you to think or to react in some way. Art can do that you know.

It is made of ASCII characters. It is certainly art, even if it doesn't fit your taste.

Still wouldn't rob it of all artistic value, although it becomes really cheap. Nevertheless, sinewav's art is clearly hand-crafted.

Characters that aren't ASCII:
♜ ♞ ♝ ♛ ♚ ♝ ♞ ♜
♟ ♟ ♟ ♟ ♟ ♟ ♟ ♟
◻  ◼  ◻  ◼  ◻  ◼  ◻  ◼
◼  ◻  ◼  ◻  ◼  ◻  ◼  ◻
◻  ◼  ◻  ◼  ◻  ◼  ◻  ◼
◼  ◻  ◼  ◻  ◼  ◻  ◼  ◻
♙ ♙ ♙ ♙ ♙ ♙ ♙ ♙
♖ ♘ ♗ ♕ ♔ ♗ ♘ ♖

This one's my favorite, somehow looks better than the bigger one in my opinion

Sine, would you mind if I used your art or derivatives of it in a server? I would credit you.

Don't bother crediting me, that's silly. You just can't claim it as your own! And yes, these are here for anyone to use.

Well thanks. Out of basic respect and courtesy, I wanted to offer to do the most correct thing. Having made my own ASCII art in the past, I can really respect the quality of what you have created.
