Are you ready to make some Fluther text art?

Asked by PhiNotPi (11627 points ) July 22nd, 2011

Text art/ASCII art/Unicode art is when you use letters and symbols to make art.
EX:
║║O
╠╣║
║║║ (stolen from erichw1504)

You can also do art that needs to be monospaced. These would be done in microsoft Notepad or an equivelent, because EVERY symbol needs to be the same size (even spaces). Fluther doesn’t conserve multiple spaces in a row, so you might need to replace some spaces with a spacefiller, such as the letter “S”.
EX:
╔======╗
╠=O==O=╣
║ ╚==╝ ║
╚=╗ S╔=╝
╔=╝║║╚╗?
╚==╣║ ║?
?╔=╝╠=╝?
?╚==╝??? (stolen from myself)

Here, the letter “S” is a spacefiller, and it only looks like Dr. J in Notepad.

I’m past the edit period, so here is some clarification.
Everyone, the Lucida Console font in Word is also monospaced, so you can uses that too. Your art does NOT need to be monospaced.

I bookmarked this thread a long time ago because it explains how to do monospace on fluther, along with several other truly wonderful things. (Note, you can use &nbsp followed by ; to create a hard space anywhere.)

@Jeruba In that case

╔======╗
╠=O==O=╣
║ ╚==╝ ║
╚=╗ S╔=╝
╔=╝║║╚╗?
╚==╣║ ║?
?╔=╝╠=╝?
?╚==╝???

The S is still a spacefiller, because fluther still does not recognized multiple spaces.

@PhiNotPi, I can string together hard spaces         by repeating the character code.

What is with all of the perverted answers on this thread?

Jeruba's avatar

All the perverted answers? Are there so many?

It’s true that the question isn’t in Social. But maybe it should be—or did you literally mean art pertaining to Fluther? I don’t think we got that.

PhiNotPi's avatar

I was thinking about art pertaining to fluther. But maybe it should be relocated.

- – Since when are boobs “perverted”?—

Symbeline's avatar

@Dutchess_III Yeah, seriously.

It reminds me of something totally off topic but…people always want to see boobs. But when a woman is breastfeeding her baby in public, it’s a scandal. Lame.

Also I didn’t make this no, but check it out.
