Daily Deviation

Given 2005-01-16
Television by ~bym

A blast from dA's past ... this old school ANSI based art caught my eye while browsing around. Check out the ANSI/ASCII section for more gems like this. ( Featured by voodoo-prophet )

I have no idea how to get about doing this. But it's worth a dozen of compliments. ANSI painting... hmm... interesting.

I don’t see how this acquired Daily Deviation status…

If this were shrunken down into pixel art (witch it basically is what it is, with coding), it would be roughly 25x45 pixels, hardly worthy of a DD.

I’m not going to say that this doesn’t require skill, but there are other pieces of art (some of witch are in this artist’s gallery) that are more deserving

And if I’m missing something about ASCII, someone please enlighten me

Yes, you're missing something about ASCII, and it is that the piece you're commenting on is not ASCII art, it's ANSI. That means the artist has 16 foreground colors to choose from, and 8 background colors. He can only use "raster blocks" to vary the amount of the foreground color against the background color, which is a very difficult technique, in my opinion.
Pixel art is mainly done with a mouse and a color palette with numeric values, and ANSI is done by typing and mixing colors in a more instinctive way. That would be the main difference.

Sorry for the late comment ^^; I was browsing through ANSI Daily Deviations and found this. I hope I didn't sound annoying. Have a nice day :)

Wow, old school. I wasn't even aware people did this anymore! That rocks.

I looked at the rest of the ANSI gallery and decided the rest of dA doesn't have a flipping clue what ANSI is. Maybe you should be the ANSI gallery moderator. ;)

When I first saw this, I wondered what the big deal was, but then I read what ANSI is, and it's quite impressive. There are no diagonal lines - they're all either horizontal or vertical, and you were able to get the illusion of diagonal lines with it. Also, for having only the use of 16 foreground colors and 8 bgcolors, you did a very good job with color. Well done.

This is awesome.

Bleh, I remember when everything looked like this. For instance: Civilization, the first game. Since then, things have changed a LOT, and now it's actually really nice to see art made using ANSI or any of those old ways. It has a sort of antiqueish feel to it.

It's a real talent too. I can barely make heads or tails of DOS. O_o (Or whatever medium is was that you used to make that picture. In the past, I've always seen pictures like that in DOS programs.)

Again, awesome stuff. :clap:

ANSI is like ASCII art (art made out of keyboard characters and displayed in plain text, on a fixed-width font), but it can utilize some special MS-DOS characters, such as those "raster blocks", which make ANSI look like pixel art. It can also use color codes, which allow the use of 16 foreground colors and 8 background colors. With those raster blocks you can have hundreds of different "shades".

I think ~bym has much better works than this, but it's nice to finally see some ANSI featured. Thanks, ^voodoo-prophet.

ANSI is actually an acronym for American National Standards Institute ( [link]) which standardized character codes. ASCII art is the first 255 codes (see here [link])

Wow, that hurts my eyes so damn much. I had forgotten what that kind of work looked like, what with modern day design. :omg: It's really impressive that you could do this though. You have a lot more patience and diligence than I do, for sure.

very nice use of perspective and shading (which i assume is pretty hard to do in ascii or ansi or whatever its called. i wouldn't know becuase i have know idea how you made it.)
