A few PETSCII pieces I've made!

Hello, I want to share a few text mode pieces I've made. I make almost exclusively PETSCII pieces, and currently dabbling in AMSCII, too.

These are all really great, Chris! You use this medium so effectively, so much character in them!

Thanks a bunch, Adam! It's been about a year since I started making these, and I like how it's a bit like using tiles or metaclusters for pixel art. It really makes me appreciate clusters more.

Please tell me this pun was intentional.

@ckelsallpxls Really like the ukiyo-e piece, recognized it pretty quickly. I never thought of combining ukiyo-e and low-spec art but it makes a lot of sense given the flat shading and how geometric the designs are a lot of the time. With no real knowledge of textmode, your work is really fun to look at because it's so playful.

@juniperdusk Thank you! I do think there are some affinities between intaglio and pixel art/text mode. The way I see and use characters are as pre-set pixel clusters (meta-clusters), which can also double as dither/interpolation in some cases.

@adam Cheers! I'm glad you like this type of stuff 😉

Hahaha but for real, they truly do have a lot of personality. Excited to see what you do next with this!

@adam Thanks!

This looks great!
