I like that you still used the thickness & lines of the characters as part of the design instead of just changing the color to make shadows and dimension. This would still look good in one color.

Thanks Bootsboots! So happy. (should I feel like it's some sort of milestone when bootsboots comments on your piece? Cause I do... hehe)

Thanks! I am glad it worked out. I originally drew a robot and tried the generator route but I thought it looked TOO CHAOTIC. Robots are clean and uniform and such, so I just tried to make it from the ground up with only text like I used to do in middle school.

This is cool! Not sure how acii art is done. I could be wrong but seems like you can just generate a drawing. Sounds like this was designed straight from the keyboard. Hope your hard work pays off in the end!

Thanks a ton! I am certain there are easier ways to do it manually, but yeah, I did the whole thing with the photoshop text tool (including font color). You could have achieved the same thing in a word processor. I used to make them in Microsoft Write back in the olden times.
