Misc ASCII Art


#1

I don’t consider myself an artist, but sometimes I randomly get powerfully motivated to explore a medium. These ASCII arts are the result of one such episode. I don’t know under what circumstances anyone would want to use them in a game, but I thought the people here might appreciate them (and if you do want to use them, feel free).

Also, now there’s this:

Finicky details: They were originally composed in Menlo, but they work well in most sans-serif monospace fonts, including Consolas, the one this forum uses. Of the freely available fonts, Inconsolata is a good choice, although in that case a line height of 1.3 looks better than the usual 1.5

ASCII art is a very interesting topic because it is made by symbols found on a keyboard and takes alot of skill to try to turn then into pictures


#3

Looks good! I’m currently developing an ASCII game and I always like looking at ASCII art to get inspired and understand how I can utilize certain characters to express certain images. Nice work :+1:

If I find any use for them I’ll credit you, though I do see a couple I could use in a certain form later in development.


#4

I would like to see more of this. If only there was some way to create a blobby person from this.


#5

If I may be curious, could you give an example? Since the adjective can be applied to a wide set of characters (pun intended in both respects).


#6

Got struck by inspiration again a few days back, and added 3 stages to the gif. Two at the end, and one in the middle, so that she now gets much bigger (@NoNoYes if that’s what you meant, you’re in luck), and there’s now also a clear alternation between getting stuffed and getting fatter.
