ASCII & ANSI Art - The Unix Style - Unix Related Arts & Image Manipulation Software
venam
Hello fellow nixers,
This thread is about ascii and ansi arts.

This kind of art style is common and "hype" around the Unix community.

From display scripts such as archey and screenfetch to custom made ones.

We had a thread close to this subject but not enough in depth talk.

In this thread we'll post the custom ASCIIs and ANSIs we've made, link others to cool websites, and discuss techniques and softwares used to create such arts, and any other related content (books, movies, etc..).

[Image: unix___guy_ritchie_ansii_banner_by_silic...9nkt3f.png] - Found on xero's deviant art, I think it was drawn by rocx from scratch.

Here are my ascii arts.
They are also displayed here.

As far as the technique goes I'm no experts, I "draw" from scratch. I'd love to hear if others have specific techniques or programs that do the job cleanly. I tried cadubi but didn't go deep enough with it.

Xero I hope you'll like this thread ;)
xero
so i guess i'll just start dumping old stuff...

these look pretty bad on the forums. view them w/ a real editor: http://pub.iotek.org/p/NuN3mKC

i'm putting all my NEW ascii art on github: https://github.com/syntax-samurai

i've also started making toilet/figlet fonts: https://github.com/xero/dotfiles/tree/master/figlet
and here's my archive of all the fonts i can find: https://github.com/xero/figlet-fonts

i've also been doing some colored shell based ascii (it's not exactly ANSI but whatever), usually deployed by curl:

curl -L http://git.io/taco
curl -L http://git.io/pizzza
curl -L http://git.io/pizzzza
curl -L http://git.io/rice
curl -L http://git.io/poptart
curl -L http://git.io/waffles
curl -L http://git.io/pancakes
curl -L http://git.io/burger
curl -L http://git.io/vburger

and their not all food!

unix is simple
curl -L http://git.io/unix
crossed swords:
curl -L http://0x0.st/8w
treasure chest:
curl -L http://0x0.st/8x

i'll finish off with the last #nixers code golf trophy:

curl -s http://pub.iotek.org/p/yLfPgVw | toilet -f term --gay

roy sac
roy sac (superior art creations) is a legend. but i *DO NOT* suggest visiting his site: http://roysac.com it's been hacked a number of times and chromium is still alerting about malicious activity. instead i suggest his deviantart: http://roy-sac.deviantart.com/

blocktronics
blocktronics is a current crew that is consistently releasing quality prods: http://blocktronics.org

xero, do you use some kind of program to create these colored ANSII arts or just a text editor where you enter block chars and escape codes?
venam
Wow, this thread turned out amazing.
I didn't open all the links yet but keep this going, it's great work.
I'm truly impressed!
ninjacharlie
Holy crap, this stuff is awesome! I was also wondering if there are any utilities you can use for creating it. Awesome stuff though :D
pranomostro
holy
fuck.

I never thought anybody could do such advanced ASCII art.
Especially the typewriter stuff.

Thanks a lot.
Adrift
The typewriter stuff has existed for a long time. I've seen murals done via that method. It's stunning. I'm not sure if back in the day I saw it on Ripley's Believe it or Not, but definitely on some Guiness Book of World Records special on TV.

I too am also interested in how people design it, freehand must take quite a long time.
vain
textmod.es mentions the DOS program TheDraw (scrot). I wonder if this is still used by people today. :)

I bet that a large portion is drawn manually. True Artists (™) don't need tools.
