Finally found a way to make slopes!
I added 14 special characters with lines of different heights to the font. They are replaced during rendering according to the rounding of the Y coordinate of their "sprite" (one character large road segment)
Mistigram: this #ASCIIart logo by @littlebitspace ingeniously does what it says on the tin, illustrating how on cathode-ray tube displays the colour of every pixel on screen is influenced by electron beams firing to activate red, green and blue phosphor dots. This piece was included in the new MIST1121 artpack collection.
Mistodon: this simple 2-frame animation, included in our recent MIST1121 artpack, was made by @joninscii for the 2021 installment of Dutch electronic musician Legowelt's annual Shadow Wolf Cyberzine -- itself offering a rich wealth of other #ASCIIart spot illustrations. You can find nearly a decade's worth of them up at http://legowelt.org/cyberzine/
Hey fediverse, which one of these screams "l33t h4ck3r" to you?
The first option is what everyone else seems to do.
The second option is how I used to start all my BASIC programs when I was growing up.
Edit: I chose the second option, because it's more "me".
Mistodon: our early revival flagbearer @Freddy43 cooked up an idea for an #ASCIIart logo printer we needed to prototype. Unable to scrape together new imagery for the demonstration, we cannibalized a '90s piece by our own Dead Soul and included this animation in the MIST1117 artpack collection released six years ago this month.
Puisque le site @velvetyne est de retour (good news) je vous invite vraiment à lire cet article : À propos de l’ASCII art et de la Jgs font. Si vous ne connaissez pas encore l’ASCII art c’est le moment de vous téléporter… Si vous connaissez déjà, et bien « just enjoy » comme on dit. #typographie #ASCIIart
The Ferryman | A #petscii the attendees of flashparty didn't appreciate got me the 7th place

Mistodon: this pointy #ASCIIart logo by @atonalosprey reads #Leviathan, indicating the Biblical sea monster. Looks like it might describe a badass metal band, but actually the design comes from a 2012 documentary of the same name about the fishing industry. Hardcore! This piece was included in the creepy new MIST1023 artpack collection.
Mistodon: nothing to be scared of, just enjoying the cool night air with my flesh off. Just taking a rest, can't seem to catch my breath without lungs in. (Wonder what's bringing all the flies out tonight?) This #ASCIIart screen is the handiwork of @vermileonhart and was included in the spooky new MIST1023 artpack collection.
Submitted to Flashparty 2023 and got 7th place but they dumped it category containing short movies so that was fair, right?

Mistodon: #TheBitchIsBack. This #ASCIIart adaptation of the most memorable scene from David Fincher's 1992 film #Alien3, featuring #SigourneyWeaver as Warrant Officer #EllenRipley and her xenomorph costar, was drawn by @atonalosprey and included in the MIST1022 artpack collection released one year ago this month.
Amiga ASCII Art
"In my thesis, I study Amiga ASCII text art. Amiga ASCII is a form of text art where the composition of letter characters set in the Amiga computer's font forms a two-dimensional representation or image. The Amiga scene is a subculture of computer enthusiasts that was popular in the 1990s. At its core are the logos and other visual materials created for BBS systems and the competitive rivalry among artists who create text art over their image-making prowess."
Mistodon: this unholy #asciiart demon comes from, well, the valley of Gehenna, but by way of the desk of @littlebitspace, our resident skull specialist. It was included in the spooky MIST1022 artpack collection released one year ago this month.
Mistodon: CoaXCable didn't mess around, but directly sent us his very best beast in block ASCII when we were looking to populate the spooky MIST1022 artpack collection with monsters, creeps and cryptids. This piece placed 3rd in the PC #ASCIIart text art competition at last year's installment of the Flashparty demoparty, and as it just so happens they're still accepting submissions for this year's compos, so don't hesitate to get your creeps in today!
Mistodon: yes, I agree... the bottle is oldschool, the #SkullAndCrossbones logo is hardcore -- it worked for England's "Death" brand cigarettes in the late '90s. But if you invite me to take a swig, I must demur. This #asciiart piece was drawn by @littlebitspace and included in the MIST1022 artpack collection released one year ago this month.
Mistodon: this is not what is typically meant by "skeleton programming". That said... I can see where the confusion would set in. This #ASCIIart piece was made by @vermileonhart and included in the spooky MIST1022 artpack collection released one year ago this month.
Mistodon: this hybrid #ANSIart / #ASCIIart piece, titled "And The River Runs Through My Veins", was drawn by @mavenmob and included in the recent MIST0823 artpack collection. The veins in question appear to be actual veins, but in this case the river looks to be a metaphor for the electronic flow of digital information through a CPU. Welcome to cyberspace!
Mistodon: this #ASCIIart #Cyrillic script rendition of the name of #AntonChekhov's 1900 play #ThreeSisters (Три сeстры́) was drawn by DosDoc as part of his prize-winning submission to the text art competition at Moscow's recent "Demodulation 2023" demoparty. This piece was also included in the recent MIST0823 artpack collection.
Mistigram: and with the farewell to the summer comes the much-needed autumn rains, here celebrated by @kurogao96 in his hybrid emoji / #asciiart illustration style. This piece was included in the recent MIST0823 artpack collection.
Mistodon: we were just discussing #AntonChekhov's #TheCherryOrchard the other day (oh, that old cliche!) so why not run with the momentum and share @DosDocOne's #ASCIIart logo spelling out its Russian name in Cyrillic calligraphy, part of his prizewinning suite of screens about the writer and his works recently shared at Moscow's "Demodulation 2023" demoparty, then included in the MIST0823 artpack collection.
