Since my collection of ascii pictures has grown I have found it necessary to divide this section of my homepage into a few smaller parts. I made most of the pictures in this collection (hopefully it is obvious which ones are not made by me). I have not put my initials on every picture but if you intend to copy more than just one or two of them I suggest that you add either my initials, "VK", or my full name, "Veronica Karlsson", to them.
Updated: 8 April 2009
(For those who are looking for something specific I have added an alternative page with links to all the pictures, sorted by subject. However, if you want to see all my pictures, or just my newest pictures, looking at one file at a time is probably more efficient.)
"Interactive" things I have made (CGI)
Plastic bag toy. Warning! Only works in some browsers.
(confirmed so far: Mozilla, IE6, Netscape 7.1)
This toy uses CSS to place a picture as a background in a textarea. This allows you to draw pictures with the "plastic bag" method.
ASCII purity test. This little program tests if your ascii art is "pure" ascii. The usefulness of this test should be obvious for anybody who has received a comment in alt.ascii-art about using "bad characters".
The Ascii Art FAQ! (2002) Read this document before asking any questions in alt.ascii-art!
(There are also: Matthew Thomas' FAQ (1998), Bob Allison's Ascii Art FAQ (1996), Jorn Barger's Ascii Art FAQ (1993), Martin Atkins' mini-FAQ and Warning: Control Codes!)
Ascii Art Tutorials Every ascii artist out there seems to have written an ascii art tutorial. I have collected some of them here. Enjoy!
- Link pages
JAVE (Java ASCII Versatile Editor) is one of the more interesting (read: runs on my computer) ascii art editors. It includes gif-to-ascii functionality, Figlet generator, and other useful things.
GIF2TXT Yet another attempt to "convert" gif images to ascii "art". (I guess my link collection would not be complete without one, even if they do all suck.)
- alt.ascii-art (The ascii art newsgroup!)
(aaa's moderated sister group,
which is, unfortunately, quite dead.which has been brought back to life again, lets see what happens...)
- alt.ascii-art.animation (About animating ascii art. Most of the time it's empty, but occasionally you can find some really interesting things there.)
- alt.binaries.pictures.ascii (A binaries group about ascii art. Useful for posting, e.g. screen shots or gif or jpeg pictures that one wants help with "converting" to ascii (such pictures should not be posted in the text-only groups))
- pl.rec.ascii-art (A Polish group. Lots of miniature pictures and some really talented artists can be found there.)
- de.alt.rec.ascii-art and kiel.ascii-art (two German groups)
