#Hi Midnight Public

Let me introduce myself by PUBlishing (harhar) a little ASCII comic:

(Gemini Gemtext)
(Web Gemtext)
(Web Plaintext)

I hope y'all enjoy it!

More to come soon...maybe..

Happy 4/20,

This is absolutely adorable. I'm really enjoying it! It's so rare - if ever - that I come across this that it's very precious.

No pressure but I hope you do more.

Awww, thanks!

Since you guys really seem to be digging it, I'll drop another one! Soonish...

In the meantime you can dig for my mole on sdf.org:70. No-self-promo :D

WOOOOOOOOOWWWWWW. Sorry, I don't have the words to describe how beautiful that is. I now must pursue the art of ASCII as well! Congratulations!

It is definitely an art form worth persuing! Very rewarding, especially with so much nice feedback ;), yet so simple to accomplish. Just pick the *ascii_chars[128] that seem to fit best and leave the rest to the imagination.

You know her already (at least from the first panel), but check out Joan Stark (jgs)! Her stuff really inspired me...

Edit: Discovered your PICO-8 Cartridge...

Now that's some impressive pixel art!

Guess I just went from master to student, if you don't mind the term ;)

Glad you liked the pico 8 cartridge! But to be honest, there's something magic about drawing a comics with 7 bits....

I'm really curious about how you do it! Are you using any software at all?

reply

she12

It's the magic of keeping it simple ;)

In that spirit, I almost exclusively use vim. I slapped together a few lines of C (ok, so much for KISS %) to generate, blank, clone, invert (e.g. '/' to '\') and paste-into the panels...but boy do I suck at coding.

I should've probably just vimproved my macro skills instead.

Anyway, these are my only utilities.
