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.

Three letters, spelling out R, G and B, are drawn in text characters in three largely-but-not-entirely congruent overlapping waves of red, green and blue.

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/

I can hear the meme say "You like #AsciiArt, don't you?"

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".

#Bitburner #ASCIIArt #l33t #h4ck3r #ScriptKiddies #AestheticAdvice

A screenshot of two possible ASCII art headers for a script I'm writing.

The first says "auto hack dot j s" in thick block letters with box-drawing characters as the shadow. Beneath it, the phrase "Your cruise control for infinite wealth" is written centred in plain text.

The second is a plain box made of asterisks separated into two rows. The first contains the phrases "auto hack dot j s", and "by Cal Alaera" (with all the letters except the first C substituted for numbers). The second contains the phrase "Your cruise control for infinite wealth".

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.

As if each character was shot out of a little gun at the centre bottom of the screen, an ASCII art logo reading "Mist" is gradually output, pixel by pixel, each character rotating into place as it lands.

Some new ascii art which began as an on-paper doodle, then finished up on my laptop. Drawing ascii art by hand is pretty fun, though proportions end up looking quite different once typeset.

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: of course, there are those traditionalists who feel that an artpack is giving its viewers short shrift unless it features more of a focus on the old warhorses #ANSIart and #ASCIIart, so here is a sampling of works in those mediums featuring in the spooky new MIST1023 artpack collection.

Another 3x3 grid of thumbnail image squares, featuring sinister mollusks, cannibalistic witches, killer birds, brooding devils, pirates with offputtingly red grins, two skulls cracked open like eggs, a big blue monster goatse-ing its way through a doorway and a ??? your guess is as good as mine.  Also the word "leviathan", but pointy!

Mistodon: #TheBitchIsBack.

On the right side of the screen, a bald woman's face grimaces in pants-soiling dismay as she is approached and inspected by a slavering alien maw approaching from the left.

@witewulf @320x200 Here's the only Amiga ASCII art I ever made. It's the banner of my BBS running on an Amiga 4000.

Unfortunately, the font I was using with Term at the time is (probably) Topaz 11, which lacks the "cohesive" look of the old Topaz 8.

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."

A Screenshot of Calligraphy's welcome page. There's an input field at the bottom of the window, and a status page with the app icon and the title "Create ASCII Banners" in the center.
A screenshot of Calligraphy's fonts list: The input field contains the text "Hi there!", and the output of all fonts can be previewed in little per-font cards, arranged in a two-column view. All the cards are titled with their respective font name, and have a button to copy their output.
The same view as before, but the window is quite narrow this time, and the preview are arranged in a single column.
A detailed view of a font: The input field still at the bottom (this time, it contains the words "Never gonna give you up"), the output view in the center. A copy button in the far right of the header bar.

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.

A human skull (unsettlingly featuring a ram's horn curling out from its side) would be staring at the viewer dead-on if its sockets contained any eyeballs.  It is neatly bisected by the framing -- only its right side is depicted.  The entire subject is illustrated in ASCII art, solely using text and punctuation characters to abstractly outline in white the contours of the skull against a black background.

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!

An indescribable creature from beyond stares down the viewer head-on, with swirls curlicueing around its swollen cerebellum and horns emanating, spiral-like, around where its eyes and temples might be.

A simple but effective message.

Live #asciiart rendering done with a bit of decently simple maths magic.
Perfect? Nah. But more than good enough for our #FurSuit ideas!

The scrolling characters on the screen are also one hell of an eye catcher, which is just so damn cool.
And performance is great!

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.

An irritable mummy lumbers from the left side of the screen to the right, arms outstretched, spindly teeth bared against a blue backdrop.  Above and below its arms can be seen the exclamation "Oh! Mummy" in yellow lettering, with a bogus caption suggesting: "A Toilet Paper Adventure (C) 1986".

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.

An ambulatory skeleton holds out its boney hands to intercept, if not exactly catch, drizzling streams of some red fluid.  On another level, the entire scene is described using coloured text of apparently valid programming code, where the text characters are the actual picture elements.

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!

in a look beneath the skin of one's chest, a dark, red view is revealed -- of bloody ribs and cartilage, but where you might expect to see a heart are green lines reminiscent of a circuit diagram, integrating with the meat machinery around it in liminal zones of zeroes and ones.
