SkyLined Organic Ascii Art 2 by skylined SkyLined Organic Ascii Art 2 by skylined
Image was drawn on cardboard with a marker, from which I took a picture with my webcam. I used Adobe Photoshop to remove noise and sketching lines and to get the background glow in. Then did a quick and dirty conversion to ascii using ASCGEN (IIRC), after which I sharpened and rounded the edges and added the inner darkening to the characters.

Do you do custom work? I would like to have something like that made for my website. Awesome by the way!

Very nice too.. and I agree with diamondie. I think you made yourself more work that necessary :)
But the end result is what matters, right?

Wouldn't it be easier to just use JavE and make use of the watermark feature? You don't need the conversion part. Anyway, the lettering looks very cool and I like the way you've decorated it. The antialiasing could be smoother in some parts, but overall it looks fine.

You're right about the antialiasing... I had uploaded the wrong versions, I've now uploaded a smoother one.

I don't think JavE was around when I created this.

Yeah, I didn't think of that. I tend to assume people upload recent work even though it could be ages old. JavE has been around for some 5-6 years I think, but before it existed many people used Netscape Composer for its "watermark" capability. ;-P

I've always done ASCII in text editors, I like the hands-on experience. I only used ASCGEN so I wouldn't have to do everything manually in this case.

I've never used JavE, but I may give it a try at some point. I've recently done some tests with using a transparent text editor window, so I could put an image in another window below it. That makes things a lot easier but much less fun.
