Re: ASCII Night


So wait, ASCII doesn't count as text-only design? Not that I want this to get rejected, I think it's neat and I'd totes buy it, but I suppose I'm confused as to what text-only means on this site.

thanks for the comments, this is not actually done in ASCII. I digitally "painted" the image in solid colors and then reduced it down over a page of 0's and 1's (i thought binary would be appropriate) to make the completed image, I hope people and the moderators realize this is more than just a text image. thanks for all the votes and comments

You might get bonged over the text only.

I don't know.

i'm keeping my fingers crossed, this piece is done in the spirit of ASCII and not just text itself. I was trying to combine the look of ASCII with the feel of Impressionism using the 0 and 1's as my strokes. It seemed a natural marriage.

Love the design! I now want to translate the binary code, I wonder what it would say. haha

YES! I'm totally on board with more positivity! Constructive criticism helps us get better, but being mean helps nobody's heart sing.

Classic! I think this design captures the idea behind this derby without resorting to flavor of the month/year memes to gather more votes. Plus, in my opinion, this one has the most universal appeal for a t-shirt, which is what this is all about.

Ah, that's why it's pseudo-ASCII art. Thanks for the explaination; I was wondering how you did it.

Re: ASCII Night


This text-based design has every bit the graphical component that shirts like Nevermore, etc. had. Shouldn't have any worries here.

I think I might like it more if the 0 and 1's where individually one colored and not the overlay of colors.

If they were, would it count as a text-only design?

Isn't there a website that you can upload an image to and get these results?
