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 :)
